    And you've already had one of your threads edited for slandering the troops. Watch your comments, because if you keep it up you'll be shown the door post haste.
    I've used the same description with kinder language in defense of the military and as an example of it leading the way in progressive attitudes. Don't take it personally. I noticed that calling gay troops "fudge packers" didn't get so much as a raised eyebrow. I'll learn the local rules and standards, it just takes a little time I guess.

    I have all the support for the statement being true I need coming from
    the just separated Marine sitting next to me, most of his friends who are
    still in and pretty much every Veteran I know, which is a few. I have yet
    to run across even one of them that thinks this is good. Here I would refer
    you back up to Gen. Amos's words, as he said, "it's as simple as that".

    Got it?
    Yeah, I got it.
    Now lets analyze what type of personality disorder you have.
    Posting all the references to YOU and THEY in all caps says a lot about you.

    See, I've seen this statement about the survey in about a dozen articles, and people like you cheering it on, but I haven't seen anything supporting the position. Don't we usually expect a position to have some support? None of these articles say, "67% of marines oppose ending DADT, half of whom claim that having gay men in combat units would reduce effectiveness because gay men aren't as good at firing weapons, gay men are notorious cowards in battle, and gay men like to have Saturdays off."

    No, these articles are basically saying that the marines surveyed thing THEY will be a problem, that THEY will harm effectiveness. See, when YOU are going to be less effective if I am there, then YOU are the problem, not me. Got it?
    If you had actually served in the military you'd understand why those us who DO wear the uniform are so concerned.

    But you haven't so you make moronic statements like the one above.

    This silly repeal is just part of the leftist plan to destroy the military as it stands from within.

    If there's ever been a more pointless thread than this one, I can't think of what it is.

    Yeah , yeah, and I have to believe in Jesus Christ to understand the mysteries of the Bible ....

    One is only asked to accept on faith that which has no basis in reality.
