I hope I’m around when the unintended consequences of this hit. When this country again needs a draft and gays are drafted right along with everyone else. No more deferment. That will be interesting.
In anticipation of the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell, in 2007, the Pentagon prepared a list of new or reinterpreted nomenclature and practices familiar to many older veterans. The gay EM who supplied Wikileaks sent us a copy just before his arrest. Some of the more interesting items are below.
All marching commands ending in March will now end in either MINCE or SWISH, at the option of the individual issuing the command;
The command Dress right, dress will be replaced with Dress or that lovely strapless evening gown right, dress
Due to the distinct possibility that it may be misinterpreted, the command To the Rear March will be replaced with OK, Fellas, Turn Around;
Marching cadences employing Jodie will now replace that archaic appellation with the more metro-sexually appropriate Brucie:
The humorous but now out-dated phrase Drop your c**ks and grab your socks is to be replaced with Drop your c**ks and grab the fellas over there;
A Junk on the bunk inspection will now allow a soldiers junk to actually be displayed on his bunk;
If it will not interfere with his duties, a Latrine Queen may wear a pair of high heel pumps if they are OD in color;
The rank of Private will be replaced with Newby.
Short Arms Inspections are no longer allowed unless at least 10 in length.
For those still smoking, as it could lead to serious unit cohesion break-down, the phrase Field strip that butt will no longer be used.
As we did deeper into the documents we were provided, we will add other changes.
PS: A bonus INVESTMENT TIP: Buy shares in firms that manufacture SOAP-ON-A-ROPE!
they will deny it until it’s too late. and then it’s, well, too late.
Something that hasn’t been mention in regard to the cessation of “don’t ask, don’t tell” is whether or not people who were previously involuntarily discharged because of open homosexuality will somehow be compensated for their dismissal. I expect this to become an issue and probably soon.
There will be a draft. It may come sooner than we think. I think the Dems will try to push it through; you remember during GWBush’s time the Dems kept trying to bring back the draft.
The GOP House should cut all the weapons system budgets 50%. Watch how fast the defense industry wh**es get the Dems to reinstate DADT. I would say it would be reinstated in about 2 days.
The POS McCain got reelected by the big defense companies on the Phoenix Scottsdale border. I think it is General Dynamics. They have buildings a mile long there.
Our founders were not droooling idiots being brainwashed by TV and Al Waleed’s Fox is no better. We need to toss the clicker and start using our brains to take our country back.

What could be more “democratic” than a draft?
What better way to implement a draft than to cause voluntary enlistment to plummet, except of course for the sodomites looking to play soldier.
Well, “Lady Gaga”, in her wisdom, said that those who can’t cope with the changes should just go home. In her dreams, we will have a politically correct military which celebrates diversity.
Then again, this “Lady Gaga” openly promotes herself and talks about her support and following in the “gay” community.
Of course, the liberal mind doesn’t think the same way that others do. The liberal S.F. supervisors once said that we really don’t even need a military. One of those liberal dudes said that in case of terror attack or other emergency, that our local police departments can do the job of defending the country. They have very different perceptions of life and the way the world is.
If you check the stats on the supposed 14,000 gays who were discharged, you’ll find that many were cases of insubordination or misconduct and the fact that the perps were gay came out in the inquiries.
Yes, there will be reparations for having been discharged or denied entry to the military under the old law.
Yes there will be lawsuits filed about these things. If the judges picked to rule on the cases are liberal, then we will see reparations and punitive damages awarded to the plaintiffs. Yes it will happen.
It’ll wrap everything up in discrimination suits within a year. Every PFC that isn’t promoted twice in his first year will swear he is discriminated against because he’s gay. In addition, any time a queer is killed in combat there’s going to be an investigation to see if it was due to discrimination. The real goal isn’t to have homosexuals openly serving in the military, it’s to drive an affirmative action stake into the heart of the professional army.
Maybe it’s a good thing. The gays can blow the enemy to pieces!
I’m hoping that you are right and that I’m worrying unnecessarily because, if I’m right, this could be a very expensive policy change.
If they read up on how the Afghans treated Russians they captured they're going to be surrendering to the Taliban in droves.
About a year ago (+/-) the Military Times did a poll that said 85% of enlisted troops said repeal would effect their reenlistment decisions. With this repeal the Dems pulled they pretty much destoryed our military and only the downturned economy will keep them for a few more years.
