Repeal of the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy may be the movement's biggest victory yet, activists say.

That doesn't even make any sense. What kind of American would "design to intentionally weaken our military"? You clearly need some education before you go spreading your nonsense.

No we're just setting it up so the moderate republicans will have to fight with the right wing nutjobs and the tea baggers.

We're just going to sit back and watch your party implode from its own bigotry and stupidity.

Now the problems start!

I see a new "card" thats going to be played in this game.

When you're passed up for promotion or honors, you will have to ask yourself, was it because of my preformance, or my sexual orientation?

Are the commanders in the field, going to walk on eggshells when it comes to commanding? Will they be looking at their own careers, avoiding any possible controversy? Perhaps a "quota" based on sexual orientation instead of merit will be in the making! After all, ya gotta level the playing field in case you have a malcontent!

We all know how the "mainstream media" will jump on the slightest nuance of "sexual prejudice".

How can gays expect "equality" when they demand a spotlight be placed on them? LOL!

All the "special training" and "political correctness" in the world, will never negate the natural order of the human condition. There will ALWAYS be that question, that doubt, that fear, you're being judged by your "personal" preferences, and not your abilities and accomplishments.

Anyway, good luck with that "equality" thingy in the military, now that you let the cat out of the bag!

The biggest accomplishment of the year - which will of course be out of the minds of most Americans, who think they are the only country in the world - was the passage of same-sex marriage in Argentina, the most populous and first South American country to have it.

Is it a matter of survival? or Equality? The Blacks are still looking for equality! So are women! But they will survive without it according to you! Right?

The homophones can keep spouting off, but the deal is done. DADT is repealed. There isn't a thing they can do about it. Yeah, their gonna really correct it in the next Congress. What a joke. One legislative house. That's all they control. Keep whining.

You are the same people whose parents taught them to hate. They hated it when women joined. They hated it when African Americans were integrated. They claimed political correctness everytime they they don't keep segregation of anything going.

They are bigots, pure and simple. They can shove their Bibles up their ass. They got as much of a chance of getting their wish as they do with the Tooth Fairy and blowing out birthday candles.

Suck it up. Your hate is anachronistic. You are and have always been on the wrong side of history. Stomp up and down and throw a tantrum, but you lose. Bigots.

As a combat Veteran of the Vietnam War I know this is a very BIG mistake. Therefore once I take office in 2013 I will order our military to discharge every one who is a homosexual and lesbian. There is absolutely no room in our military for this sickness to exist.

I investigated a case where a Sergeant was seducing young male privates to have sex with him. He was discharged with a Bad Conduct Discharge. We CANNOT allow this to happen within our ranks if we want our military to be strong and effective. When you are in combat you have too much to worry about to be concerned with a person's sexual choices. And if you are judged by the manner in which you issue orders then you are in big trouble. I mean if a Sergeant issues an order to a homosexual who feels he or she is being picked on because they are gay then that Sergeant can be court marshaled and discharged for doing his or her duty. That is demoralizing and creates an undesirable atmosphere in our military.

Not to mention the racism, the bigotry, and the just plain asininity of some of his stances. This fuckwit doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of coming close to the ballot, let alone becoming President.

Where's The Army's Suicide Report?

snip:
Waiting For Answers, Is the Army sandbagging its anticipated 'suicide report'?

Military members and their families are asking the same question: Where is the Army s so-called suicide report? It s the work of the 12-member Mental Health Advisory Team, commissioned by the top generals in charge of the Iraq war after a string of battlefield suicides. It was initially due out last Thanksgiving. Then it was supposed to be released in early February. Now, there s talk that it s been shelved indefinitely.

snip:
But evidence suggests that a wave of combat-fatigued soldiers as many as 20 percent of the 130,000 troops in the field not seen since the aftermath of the Vietnam War is about to come crashing onto American shores.

snip:
On Jan. 14, William Winkenwerder Jr., undersecretary of defense for health affairs, told reporters that the number of confirmed Army suicides for Operation Iraqi Freedom was "on the high end of what they've seen in the past.

The Mental Health Military Scam

Baltimore Sun's article by Lisa Chedekel and Matthew Kauffman " Policies on mentally troubled troops questioned" is informative to the problems of psychotropic drug usage on the war front.

Death, violence and suicide by mind drugs

Mind drugs create changes to the personality by altering the brain.

What we have is the manufacturing of Gay people by chemical means of the Pharmacutical Industry.
