Plenty of guys who were sent off to Vietnam weren't happy that they had to serve with black people. They got over it pretty quickly once the bullets started flying.

Stop pretending our servicemen and women are petulant crybabies who will suddenly stop fighting for America if they have to serve with gay people. Heck, plenty of them already do and know it.

Sorry to disappoint, but a lot of Tea Party members slant toward the libertarian side of issues, and if openly gay men and women want to serve in the military, there's no good reason to stop them. Homophobia is not a reason to exclude Americans from serving, just as racism was not a legitimate reason either.

You have every right to force your version of morals on your kids, just not on the rest of us. That's real liberty there, brother.

And I've never cheated on my taxes....lol.....don't know where that came from.

Now with your thoughts on letting anyone do what ever they want. Why not let ACORN pimps and the likes in or why not man boy members like Obamas safe school czar. Or you let the nut jobs that like a dog or donkey.

Now what a gay does in their own home is their business but to try and make it ok with everyone else by haveing a gay day at a childrens park like Kings Island or others. Teaching it in schools and trying to make the rest of people to be like the gays.

No way is it ok or should it be promoted as ok. It is only ok in private not in public or in any other form such as the military. Maybe you forgot to pay your taxes and you had a slip.

Whoa! You've really slid off the tracks! We're talking about DADT here. You're 100% correct that whatever consenting adults (straight or gay) choose to do in private is fine. In fact, that only supports the fact that Don't Ask Don't Tell should be repealed. Repealing DADT doesn't suddenly allow gay sex in public or sexual assaults....lol.......though some of the fundamentalist frauds say it will. It merely allows AMERICANS who happen to be gay to serve their country. If they do anything improper, they'll be punished or discharged, just like any straight serviceman.

Clicking your heels together and pretending gays don't exist is useless.
