Posted on 12/05/2010 1:22:28 PM PST by Thunder90
WASHINGTON As the commanders of the Army, Air Force and Marines cautioned the U.S. Senate against abruptly repealing the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, critics are also warning that accepting open homosexuality and pro-homosexual "reprogramming" could drive massive numbers of troops out of the service.

I’ll keep my opinions on DADT private, but we all must remember that of McKennedy says it, it’s probably derived from stupidity.
The man is an ass, pure an simple.
This is as opposed to Obama, who is an impure simple ass.
Once again we have to bow down to a couple percent, this time it is the filthy perverts of our society. When is this crap going to end?
The gays will take over the military and other nations will laugh at us. Maybe not the Greeks given their history but the Belgians and others will.
I am out in February.
Nothing like a nice tyrannical draft just because of some elitist politicians who want to socially engineer our military.
****critics are also warning that accepting open homosexuality and pro-homosexual “reprogramming” could drive massive numbers of troops out of the service.*****
What would General GEORGE WASHINGTON do about this problem?
At a General Court Martial whereof Colo. Tupper was President (10th March 1778) Lieutt. Enslin28 of Colo. Malcom’s Regiment tried for attempting to commit sodomy, with John Monhort a soldier; Secondly, For Perjury in swearing to false Accounts, found guilty of the charges exhibited against him, being breaches of 5th. Article 18th. Section of the Articles of War and do sentence him to be dismiss’d the service with Infamy. His Excellency the Commander in Chief (George Washington)approves the sentence and with Abhorrence and Detestation of such Infamous Crimes orders Lieutt. Enslin to be drummed out of Camp tomorrow morning by all the Drummers and Fifers in the Army never to return; The Drummers and Fifers to attend on the Grand Parade at Guard mounting for that Purpose.

Decimating the military is the whole idea here. I don’t think Obama wants that, I actually think he has seen the light and listens to the generals. He didn’t run from ‘Stan or Iraq, has bumped up the tempo of UAV strikes and sent 30,000 troops to ‘Stan. Yes, it should have been 60,000, but politics shaved the extra 30k. He saw the light on
It’s the left in general that is pushing this, and they want to destroy the military so we can’t fight any more wars.
I think they should let the gays in. Make them announce that they are gay. Then the gay men bunk and shower with the women and the gay women shower and bunk with the men. Let’s see how the gays like that.
Yes, it must fail because a repeal will be irreversible, short some absolute miracle. We actually need to reinstate the flat out repeal of all homosexuals and others with sexual perversions, as the policy before DADT had been for eons.
McCain: 264,600 may quit military (DADT repeal)
Replaced by 264,600 homosexuals. How gay is that?
The Belgians have had gays in their military for years as have most Western European countries. The last thing one should care about is how Western European militaries view the US military. Their donut dolly militaries are in no position to judge.
I bet more then 264,000 quit the GOP when McCrap became the nominee
I meant, “reinstate the flat out banning of all homosexuals”
They have that luxury because we are still the primary defenders of Europe.
ALL DECENT and MORAL people will leave the military!
So the cost of allowing fags in the military is that a quarter of a million trained personnel leave. The benefit is that now our military is home to a bunch of sausage smugglers. It would seem that the cost far outweighs the benefits, if you’re actually looking to make a RATIONAL decision.
On the other hand, if you’re just trying to undermine the US military, this would be an excellent roadmap.
GREAT point!! Obama has his OWN army of civilian KIDS!! This is getting scary.
The Belgians never stopped a single nation from overrunning its borders, and barely is holding itself together now.
Any military they have might as well be for traffic control for invaders passing through.
I read your characterization of the pResident as a pimple on the @ss (which may be equally valid)...

At a General Court Martial whereof Brigr. General McIntosh was President (10th. March) Colo. William Cook of 12th. Pennsylvania Regiment tried for disobedience of orders in sundry instances (viz) About 20th. of December last when the Enemy advanced over Schuylkill, the Brigade to which he belonged was ordered and did march towards the Enemy, but Colo. Cook absented himself from his Regiment and did not join it again whilst on that service which was near ten days. After the Regiment was incamped again for about two days, Colo. Cook after having been refused leave of absence, did without leave abscond from Camp and did not return again until a few days since. For giving leave of Absence to Officers of his Regiment and reporting them absent without leave, by which they were brought to a trial by a Court-Martial and acquitted.
The Court having maturely considered the Evidence produced are of opinion that Colo. Cook after having been refused leave of absence, did without leave absent himself from Camp and did not return until near two months after he went away being a breach of General orders of 22nd. of december last and contrary to good order and military discipline and do sentence him on account of some particular Circumstances and on account of the good character he has sustained as an officer only to be reprimanded in General orders, but acquit him of furloughing his officers and reporting them absent without leave.
The Commander in Chief approves the sentence and hopes that the disgrace to an Officer of Colo. Cook’s rank of being found guilty of the Charge of quitting Camp without leave will be a sufficient reprimand.

If he can block this I'll be grateful to him.
You do have a way with words, Mr. Scott. Intended or not, made me laugh.
I believe I have found the problem. When I look at “preview” I noticed the last two parenthsis )) and not underlined in red on the URL when the page loads.
Load the page as is, then when you get the error warning go to the URL and add the missing )), then hit enter.
It should load.
I watched most of the hearings.
McCain was the only obvious opponent of repealing DADT.
Thanks. That solved the problem.
Not even HALF of that number would quit.
Repeal of DADT is not as unpopular in the ranks as people think it is.
The old saying that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” so why do they want to change the system that would damage our military??? The military has kept our nation free since the late 1700’s so I say to the politicians, KEEP
YOUR F—KING HANDS OFF!!!! OIF Vet.
The Constitution grants Congress the power to pass rules for the regulation of our armed forces, not the stinkin’ leftist courts.
The very existence of the UCMJ is acknowledgment that not all of the rights accorded civilians apply to service members.
Who wants to go home on leave and be asked "how's the moral"? Being identified as one of a group of sex deviates is NOT what the disciplined fighting forces are intended to be.
“The gays will take over the military and other nations will laugh at us. Maybe not the Greeks given their history but the Belgians and others will.”
You are right we cater too, the smallest and most meaning less groups.
When rejecting the advances of a fag is declared a hate crime you’ll see a mass exodus of the REAL men and women in the military.
Remember how derelict Clinton was in the Oval Office, acquiring Lewinskys and practicing muff diving when he SHOULD HAVE BEEN seeing to the responsibilities of his Office? When the lid comes off of gay conduct the military will degenerate rapidly! IMHO
I’m still p-— about the fecal matter Harry Reid was blowing
about John McCain over this issue. I ‘d wish I could shove a potato up his tailpipe(or wherever) but to what avail our
system of government has been irretrievably broken for some time now. And the predictable actions of the Lame ducks only
proves my point. I sent e-mail to Mikey Mullen reminding him
of that Navy man who committed suicide when he discovered he had been wearing combat awards he never earned.I do not condone suicide-but find him more honorable than Mullen or Gates who violate their Oath in this evil act.
If massive numbers of troops are driven out of military life, we’ll be so fortunate as to have them in civilian life. I’m certain they won’t be Obama’s civilian forces.
I was trying to look at the positive side. I guess there is no positive side.

May 24, 2010 SPECIAL REPORT from WAYNE MADSEN.
Obama and Emanuel: Members of same gay bath house in Chicago
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicagos gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
The bath house, Mans Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicagos grand old bathhouses. WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year lifetime memberships to paying customers and that the clubs computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to Mans Country believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
Members of Mans Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry.
Obama began frequenting Mans Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Mans Country after he left the Clinton White Hosue and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor.
Mans Country appears to be a one stop shopping center for gay men. The clubs website advertises steam rooms, fantasy rooms, bed rooms, male strippers, adult movies, and lockers.
However, Mans Country was not the only location for Obamas predatory gay sex activities. The Chicago gay community is aware that Obama often made contacts with younger men at his famous pick-up basketball games. It was at these pick up matches where Obama first met Emanuel and a young Democratic campaign worker and senior bank vice president named Alexi Giannoulias. Currently running for Obamas old U.S. Senate seat now occupied by Roland Burris, Giannoulias successfully ran for Illinois Treasurer in 2006 after being drafted for the run by Chicagos Democratic machine.
Damage to the greatest military ever was my first thought, too. However, after reading of the mass exodus, I was wondering if he/they aren’t trying to get their brown-shirt mandatory government service started with this.
Also, I wrote to John McCain about this through his web site. And also have the list of those on the committee.
We need to fight for the military while they fight for us.

“Once again we have to bow down to a couple percent, this time it is the filthy perverts of our society. When is this crap going to end?”
We MUST start turning the PEOPLE back to traditional values. They have been brainwashed by Hollywood and the Lame Streme Press that being homosexual is OK. It is time to aggressively challenge that publically. Expose (no pun intended) the public to what the homosexual lifestyle is really about - and not the sanitized crap put out by Hollywood and Lame Stream Press - and the public will be revolted.
The battle has to be fought and won in homes, churches, and the public arena. We cannot afford to be civil or nice about it anymore....it is time to show the WHOLE truth without spin. The truth WILL set us free.
Anybody have actual statistics as to how many homosexuals there are and how many would enlist? If not that many, then destruction of the military is the motive, and as I said elsewhere, the reinstatement of the draft.
We need to drive them back into their closets (and bathrooms along the interstate).

You are 100% right, the gloves need to come off.
Definitely aimed at the destruction of our finest military.
And yet, almost everyone speaks like open gays are inevitable!
I have no idea, especially since they make up less than 1% of the population.
I have a question the men/women on FR who served in the USMC.Isn’t it technically incorrect to say “I was in the Marines”? I thought it was supposed to be “I was in the Marine Corps”.I was reading in a Marine Corps magazine where a Marine said that he was “in the Marines”and his CO quickly corrected him.I was just wondering.
PS; The CO said to this Marine that someone in the Army would not say “I was in the soldiers”.
