So what? Half of the military is gay! The military has always been a great place for gays to socialize and make new connections.

I have no problem with gay people. But liberals(DFL) and fascist(GOP) make me sick. We need some REAL conservatives running things.

I think this moron doesn't understand what he is doing and he doesn't understand the new policy. First you can openly serve as being gay and that the military cannot discharge you, but it does does give you a right to openly do articles and news stories saying you are gay and in the military. This is a politicle issue and when you are in the military you are not allowed to talk and express your opinion as a military person in or out of uniform. This is a violation of the UCMJ subject to a Court Martial. The bottom line just because we a policy was passed doesn't mean military people should be coming out and making statements and they should follow the rules of what any other military person has done in history when it comes to political poicies. This Dude shopuld have kept his mouth shut and should be invesigated under article 32 to see if charges should be brought forward. He is an officer and should be setting an example of how you conduct yourself in a military manner.

First off, he understands perfectly what he's doing. Read the entire linked article. Lt. Seefried was instrumental in the fight for his Right to serve our nation with dignity and integrity.

Secondly, since when do you lose your First Amendment Right of Free Speech when you enter the military? Yes, there are court approved limitations for obvious reasons, but Lt. Seefried is well within his Rights. See: http://www.nlgmltf.org/leaflets/GI_Rights_fre...

Thirdly, please use spell check (most browsers have a built in spell check these days) and proof-read your post before sending. Multiple, blatant spelling and grammatical errors render any reasoned argument (not that your's is reasoned to begin with) moot.

Uncle Milty gave me permission on his deathbed to use his material, as did Henny Youngman, Rodney Dangerfield, Lenny Bruce and Bob Hope.

Now you take my wife....please

As Rodney might have said:
"Is that your head, or did your neck throw up?"

Bruce: I'm pregnant.
Bruce's friend: Great! Who's the father?
Bruce: How should I know? I don't have eyes behind my back.

I understand from your post that you have a ringside seat to your anal canal.

You poor misanthrope. Do you actually believe that anyone who defends the civil rights of gays has to be gay? All that's required is being human. Of course, that wouldn't apply to you, quadruped.

No need to stay in the closet Wolf. Man up or queer up, whatever but stop the denial. Do you prefer all colors or are you a racist homo?

Your feeble attempt at responding reveals more about your lack of higher brain function than I possibly could. Keep it up, and say hello to that greased-up cucumber you're enjoying.
