    They'll have to get through our excellent volunteer military first - even the gay ones.

    Re: Gays in the Military

    Has even one lone Progressive here or on other Forums ever considered that a few among them might be for this BECAUSE they'd like to see the US Military Castrated to an extent ???? Why is it they despite other difference's they congregate on this matter without the mildest suspicion of the Pure intentions of others???

    The idea the military would be "castrated"(LoLz) by letting gays in is hilarious. No, your claim is stupid in the extreme.

    Obviously you chose not to think as you read my entry. You are so hung up on this outlook which I notice is a prevailing trend on this board where Gays are somewhat heavier in number than in the overall society.

    I thought as I read your entry...I thought it was hilarious. I have never understood how some on the right, those who supposedly support our military(though oddly I find liberals are more likely to do volunteer work for vets, something I take great pride in doing) have such low opinions of our service men and women that they think they cannot handle something as easy to handle as the presence of gays. Something that the rest of the country has managed to handle for some years now.

    Re: Gays in the Military

    I really don't think I ever said that they couldn't handle it. I just believe that it should not be presented to them as a heavier oddity & distraction that it as presently is. Obviously Gays have always been there and DADT was progress, but that is not enough for some.

    My contention is that this is NOT about either Fairness or Justice , but to confront & retaliate against the establishment.

    Gays really are not that odd. Most gays don't act much if any different than most people outside of dating/relationship type stuff. The distraction is not really present. If some one is more worried that some one is checking out his ass than what the enemy is doing, they are already a ****ty soldier.

    Repealing DADT is not about fairness or justice, it is about doing what is best for our country by giving us the largest possible recruiting pool now and in the future. It is about removing an arbitrary and silly distinction from military service. It is very similar to getting rid of any antiquated law that no longer serves a useful purpose.

    I really do not believe that the quality in the Recruiting pool will in any way improve if this gets really implemented. On the contrary despite the current rotten economy I think it might accelerate the departure of some who do not appreciate this type of progress.
