Congress overturns Don`t Ask Don`t Tell. What do you think.

I think it is a great idea. This opens up a vast source of manpower,which we will need it if we get into a shooting war in Korea. Think about it. Now no one will be exempt from military service because he claims he is gay.Korea is about to go off.If so other countries may get involved ,oter wars fire up. we will need all the males we can get. Gays are not married,most do not have kids,at leastmot are not married and do not have kids. some do.They won`t need so much R&R because they can take care of it right there in the line.Think about it.This is a brilliant plan to help with the manpower problem.On sub duty,just make the whole crew gay.They will never want to surface or come into a port.Just resupply and cruise on .

Don't agree. I truly believe that morale will fall over time and possibly some people who are straight will not choose the military because of this. I agree with the Marine General.

As if it would be hard to tell when there is a gay male in the military.

Lets take Dollop for example. He's very queer. If he went into the military everyone would know from the way he walks to the way he talks and how his wrist gets all bent when he's sissy slap fighting with people who don't agree with him.

I have much more confidence in our military personel. I have no doubt their training and knowledge will overcome any issues they may face. If a straight person decides not to join the military solely on this one reason then it's probably for the best.

I thought homosexuals already have a branch of military they serve in. The Navy that is.

No doubt the military will be like a ghost town in a few short years. With only the white trash and elitist's who are left willing to, umm, er, participate.

Picture the movie "Full Metal Jacket". Now picture it sissified.
LOL! Haha!

Eight Republicans back ‘Don’t ask’ repeal
218 Comments RSSEmailPrint

Scott Brown and Lisa Murkowski are among the Republicans who voted to end debate.

Eight Republicans bucked their party in backing the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" policy, potentially risking a backlash from the conservative base while giving the historic vote a stronger bipartisan finish than many expected.

The Republican senators voting “yes” with the Democrats on repeal were Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mark Kirk of Illinois, John Ensign of Nevada, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, George Voinovich of Ohio, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska – and Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine.

Burr, Ensign and Kirk did not announce their support for repeal before the Saturday vote. Burr and Ensign initially sided with Republicans in a procedural vote to bring the measure to the floor; they voted for repeal on the final vote.

Well the present and past Marine Generals seem to disagree with you and so do I. I agree with Dollop, I think many people will not make the military a career and it could very possibly end up causing the draft to be put into operation. Things were going good as it stood,why change things and mess up a good volunteer military. The draft may come into being in a couple years because of it. I proudly served in the Army,but would not join now.

Here is the reaction out on the coast. kind of mixed in LA but San Francisco as expected is going wild over it.

Time will tell how this goes over.One thing for sure though, if the situation in Korea fires up we will need a lot of people in uniform. It could too at any time. I have a feeling that a lot of people who like to experiment with the military,do not see it as an organization that has the main purpose of killing people and breaking things.A lot look at it as a means to tap into benefits, but if the big fight starts in Korea comes, the benefits are going to be scarce. It seems all the major powers in that area are more concerned about it than the US. So as the first poster said ,this will expand the manpower pool. We will need more infantry than we got.So that will be the first priority.

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world...

What amazes is there is more in the news about this than there is about the situation in Korea.I guess it is all a matter of where the real priorities in this administration are at.It could be to that they want to divert the public`s attention from reality.

There are a few things wrong with your presentation:

1. With the wars we have been involved in over the past nine years, democrats are just not that eager to get involved with another one. Even when it is right, those like John Kerry try to talk their way around it.

2. Gays have served in the military under the DADT provision, and one of your links has a senator remarking there was nothing wrong with it, didn't need to be fixed.

3. Straight soldiers have already been fighting as the 'hard hitting men', and they don't have to make excuses or defend their orientation.

4. Then there is still the fall back position of the draft. Now who was it that set up for young men to sign up for selective service...oh, right. It was democrap named Carter.

Conclusion: it was just democrap posturing. Notice how they didn't dare take this vote BEFORE the mid-term?

Would you also not work in the same office as a gay man? Or play on the same sports team? Or join a club? How about go to church with one?

Whether you like it or not, gays, lesbians, and bisexuals are coming out with their sexuality faster than ever. The stigma is dying. You can discriminate all you want, but just remember at any just about any given time, there is every chance in the world that there is someone who isn't "straight" within 10 feet of you. So be afraid.
