“Over at MSNBC they keep quoting polls that say the public overwhelmingly wants this.”
I wonder how the question reads. If they just ask whether we should end the current policy a lot of people may think the question is whether we should go back to the old policy rather than throwing the gate wide open.
If this is done it will worsen recruiting problems, not help. For every gay who joins and turns out to be worth his salt two or more straight men will decide not to join because of it and there will be much greater morale problems because of gays openly flaunting their homosexuality.
I thought it was bad enough being cooped up with straight sailors who liked to brag about their exploits with women, I kept mine to myself. I would have puked my guts out if I had had to listen to a bunch of queers bragging about their trip ashore.
LOL, I try not to think of things like that. Not pretty.
You ever see Married with Children where Al Bundy carpools with three huge (very fat) women and he has to listen to them talk about their previous night's bedroom experiences? “Oh he was so good”... LOL, Al looks like he will puke and makes a joke about seeing a pork chop out the window to distract them.
