How long has this policy been debated by the military? What is left to study? What is left to argue about. The time is now! There is no more time to waste with homophobes in or out of the military. Start kicking out the people that are serving themselves instead of the people that are trying to serve our Country. We the people have no more time to waste with them!
If you're wondering; yes I'm talking to you four Generals that want to waste more time and throw out more of our dedicated, loyal, soldiers that are actually serving our Country. Get your useless asses out the way.
That was funny. I just needed to add a line or two. I think I'm finished now. Back to the subject. Does anyone here think there needs to be more study or investigation by the Military on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell?
What does religion have to do with this. Our government decided it would give the Military time to study the Don't Ask Don't tell law, before they will outlaw it. This is our government failing us. What does religion have to do with it.
You're right, a study will do nothing but bring up the same arguments the military was making since they had to accept blacks into their ranks. It's a stall tactic and a waste of time. While this time is being wasted; the treat of being throw out of the military will be hanging over the heads of some of our soldiers that are fighting and dying for us right now!
Umm... I think there should be more than a re-evaluation by the military. More appropriate would probably be a re-evaluation of the military. The U.S. military is what was used as a megaphone to reshape domestic opinions about homosexuality, back in WWII. Until then it was quietly but calmly respected as the basic fact of life, and of wartime, that it always was.
So I think there ought to be more than just a debate over whether or not the military drops its policy now. How about some retroactive accountability? Demand for public apology, or class-action?
I don't think posting in a forum will get us the sort of accountability that's probably in order here, but this sort of thing is why I'm not "on the grid" subsidizing the federal government with taxes either. Wouldn't make a lot of sense to perpetuate a problem and then complain about it.
I'm not attempting to swat a hornet's nest here. I just keep hearing the refrain "no government is good government" or words to that effect.According to the tea-party folks I've spoken to government is...
Most predominate religious countries are more war like, yet Religions claim they have the higher moral grounds. USA has 5% of the world population in which is 85% Religious and they have 50% of the world’s military...
