    Looking puzzled.

    I was saying that asking me if I had been screwed by a chicken is a "Do you beat your wife" question. Excuse me. Still beat your wife.

    To you, our military is "they". I don't have that luxury. We will be taking up more time and effort to integrate persons whose sexual conduct is disruptive to unit cohesion and morale. Meanwhile, thanks to our politicians' inability to address mounting debt and economic stagnation brought about by their desire to impose control on the economy, we are looking at draconian defense cuts, which means that we will be reducing force structure. To put it another way, we are going to be removing people who have performed their duties and were otherwise qualified for retention, while keeping persons who were previous seen as unfit, because of the agenda of a small but financially powerful pressure group and that is, at best, indifferent to our military.

    That's not what I call "fine."

    I'm trying to envision future coming home parades for the troops; do they sashay in formation? Is there pastel confetti? Are speeches made with a lisp? Can they hold hands while at ease? Will the marching bands wear skirts?

    Oh dear, the future looks fabulous.;)

    Okay, I would think that cuts in defense would encourage the military to keep the best qualified. I think that qualified would be about the skills they have and their physical abilities, not about who they fall in love with.

    This is one of the many ties you should just keep your mouth shut and learn from people that actually know what they are talking about where the military is concerned.

    Seriously.

    Your heroes on the left are the ones forcing us to accept who falls in love with who as "normal". The left is the ones that continually use us as a social experiment.

    They are the ones that ensure we can't keep the best qualified with piss poor pay raises...this year will be one of the lowest since 1962...putting soldiers on trial for doing their jobs...and NO I'm not talking about 5/2 and their sick kill squads...and by forcing us to add the repeal of don't ask don't tell to the pile of egg shells we already have to walk across in the name of EO.

    Come on sweet cheeks, just embrace it and you'll find that you actually liked it all along.

    The military is being led by a population slowly sliding into total degeneracy.

    Who they are attracted to impacts how they fit into an organization.

    Let me try this on you, since none of the other activists will give an honest answer: We currently have latrines, showers and sleeping facilities that are segregated by gender. Men are not permitted into women's areas and vice versa. If you assume that gay males can share showers, billets and other intimate areas with other men without any stresses, and that lesbians can do the same with women, then why not just eliminate all separate facilities? Do you believe that straight men can share intimate quarters with women without incident? If not, why do you think that gay men are going to show more restraint than straight ones?

    An organization can only have one true top priority (Despite the insane, illogical bullshit put out in decades of DOD and other government policy documents): Is it going to be maximum combat effectiveness, or something else, like social engineering or feel-good bullshit for certain Congressional constituencies and voting blocs?

    Choose wisely. There are consequences.
