    A youtube video and a blog, neither of which actually addresses your way off topic claim that Obama is somehow Marxist.
    There's plenty there to reveal that he was. And as I say, which was my point, had there been any revelations of fascist sympathy between conservatives, there'd be a rumpus. We know there'd be so in England.

    Still, if my points bother you so much that they're just dismissed out of hand, you can always take it up with the moderators.

Most of the pogs I observed pretty much acted like civilians, these are the soldiers who would not be hurt by a lack of unit cohesion nor would their lives be on the line as much those in combat MOSs. They lacked the same discipline as combat soldiers.
    DADT affects everyone in the military, not just combat troops. On top of this, there is no proof anywhere that openly gay Marines or soldiers would affect unit cohesion, morale or discipline. People's actions should be what is taken into account when determining whether someone is negatively affecting any of those things. A servicemember should have to fear discharge or not being allowed to serve in certain units if they have shown that they cannot do the job, won't do the job to their fullest, or if they cause problems with discipline due to their actions, such as sleeping with someone else's wife or even girlfriend or they can't control their alcohol consumption or fighting urges even off duty, things like this. A person should not have to fear discharge or not being able to serve in certain units because others feel that they are not worthy, despite having no evidence to support such views. A person should not have to fear discharge or not being allowed to serve in certain units because others have insecurity issues or cannot put aside their own biases to actually follow orders and/or do their mission.

    And how in the heck does a unit being in more danger of putting their life on the line have anything to do with serving with openly gay soldiers/Marines? You need to explain how somone being openly gay will somehow automatically put their unit in more danger.

    No one joined the service to feel "comfortable" around everyone they work with. In fact, military life is more likely to change some people's prejudices they held before joining the military because those people are being "forced" to work with people they would otherwise be uncomfortable around. There are racists and sexists in the military. There are also people who are so set in their own religious beliefs, that they are uncomfortable being around others whose beliefs are very different than their own. There are also people who come from different backgrounds and lifestyles, even some that others would consider immoral or disgusting. Almost everyone in the military is forced, at one time or another, to work with people they would rather not work with, including those in combat units.

    So, what you're saying is that you believe the Republicans in Congress don't actually care about what is best for the military. If they are not willing to take into consideration this survey and the recommendations of the majority of the military heads and experts, then they are simply voting on their own biases. In fact, the majority of those voting for those Congressmen and women are for repealing DADT. So aren't they just showing how bias they actually are by not voting for what most of the military heads and most of their constituents want, and what most of those affected by this repeal could care less if it happens or not.

    This seems correct regardless of what Navy says. The Republicans are blocking a very important, win-win nuclear pact with Russia purely because they want to see Obama fail. There is no justifiable reason for them to hold it up other then for political points. The bad thing is that it is highly damaging to the US not only in military aspects, but in credibility. Who is going to bother asking us for a treaty when the GOP will simply say no, even if it is clearly in our best interest? They are taking McConnell's goal of getting Obama out of office even if it hurts America in the process.
