<quoted text>You think I don't know US servicewomen have died in Iraq and Afghanistan? The article says nothing about cause of death, sometimes illness, accident and negligence kill more people than hostile action.
More than 1522 US servicemembers have been killed in Afghanistan under Obama's leadership since 2009, less than a third that number were killed under Bush's leadership during the first eight years of the war.
Putting women in combat units means training injuries and deaths, even if they never get to combat. Then, there's the effect on male troops fighting and training alongside...
Obama is a disaster as a military leader.
Number of deaths in Iraq since March 2003, 4488. Number of deaths in Iraq since Obama took office, 257. Are you going to apply your same logic to Bush for the 4231 that died under his watch? Do the math, 4231 from March 2003 to Jan 2009 in Iraq vs 1522 for Obama from Jan 2009 to present. You can add in those 257 from Iraq for a total of 1779. That works out roughly to 748/year for Bush and 445/year for Obama. What then? So Obama is a disaster as a military leader. Is Bush 1.7X worse?

The number of deaths in Afghanistan have increased for all countries since Obama took office by about the same percentages. Half of them have been from IEDs.

Spc. Michelle M. Witmer KIA April 9, 2004. Killed in Bahgdad. That would be the front. She is just one of many. No matter how deep you shove your head in the sand, women are in the line of fire, serving our country with chin up and eyes forward.

Keep on posting. The more you do, the more obvious your idiocy becomes.

What? How so? It isn't the close quarters that is stressful, it is the location of those quarters.

What shame is that, Brian? The knowledge that they defend people like you?

It certainly appears that you've got something against a portion of them.

OK now that you had your little hissy fit, tell us why do other forms of marriage make you so mad? Don't say they don't, they very obviously do.

Anyway, lets get back to the topic OK Fruitcake? Great!

Why is polygamy illegal?

WOW! Yes. Tragedies like this are becoming more common ever since we started allowing gay captains.

That's a funny one! Relax Fruitloops.

You don't have to prove your loyalty to anyone! You can be for equal rights and still have sense of humor. Your gay friends know you support them, no need to get all silly like that!

I love this! You make a troll thread against me. You comb through other threads looking for dirt on me, you are obsessed, son!

And then you try to tell me you are in my head!

Priceless!

Relax Fruitloops!

I support marriage equality for everyone, glad you don't like it!

Seven family types, eh? How did Regnerus control the variables? He didn't. He compared stable, long-term, live together married couples with single parents that may have had a same sex fling. Clearly an "apple and oranges" comparison. No validity. Bogus study. Very simple.
Fact is there hasn't been any credible study on the effects of homosexual parents yet.

Every study sets numerous perimeters. If you don't like his, do your own. None of the other family types are whining, stop yours.

Basically because the SCOTUS doesn't like polygamists!

Many people have, and the verdict is in.

Marriage is a good thing. for those who value it. It's helpful to couples, good for their children, and provides support to the elderly. All good things for society.

And it does all these lovely things for gay couples in the SAME way it does them for straight couples.

And, yes, that IS a reason the smile.

The verdict has been in for a long time. The Regnerus study only confirmed it. Nature established the ideal ions ago.

A father, mother and their biological children. Default situations dramatically increase the negatives for everyone.

And gay couples with children rank last. After single parents.

Hardly a reason to smile...

Smirk.
