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.

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.
> Poorly.....which is what the proponents of this farce want.
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.
Hey I hear they want to offer the troops free phones and
no phone bill — sounds like bribery to me. Force them to tolerate homosexuals and sodomy then promise them Arpege.
can you reply “blogpimp” under the repeal of DADT? I thought congress just declared prostitution and sodomy acceptable?
If I were serving on active duty and requested to attend some Military Ball and saw two gay guys dancing the night away in wild abandon —If I barfed all over their dress uniforms would I be charged with a Hate Crime?
Look for massive discharges of straight GI’s who express any negative views of this latest politically correct policy.
Yes, and most were discharged because they were trying to do it with straights or in public. Their lust always rules, because it is the most important aspect of their pathetic lives. Narcissistic to the bone.
Kids today are growing up with gay issues being flaunted at them. Remember the movie, Brokeback Mountain?
Most people in Congress haven’t served and are living in a theoretical world.
I’m curious to see how young people in the military react to this.
“... and gays are drafted right alone with everyone else...”
I actually believe they want the draft back... for men and women. (politicians’s kids would be exempt, of course). Makes me think about Moochelle’s statement that the food bill was important for security to keep the young people thin in case of enlistment. Just a thought.
Wait, now you can ask and not hire......
Yeah, and you can tell now...... you know special badges
Secondly, young people are optimistic and believe they can handle the nonsense which will result from the degeneration of our society and its institutions. In the long run they can't, but they still believe they can. This optimism will keep people in the military.
Thirdly, a particularily obnoxious sodomite will not leave the base as he would not return. In WWII my Dad had an NCO that was afraid to leave the base and would move heaven and earth to keep away from duty on a ship. He was such an ass that he would simply have never returned. In short, an obnoxious fag will simply die or end up missing.
Heterosexual politicians that voted for repeal of DADT for any reason other than to seriously weaken the military forces are sadly out of touch and seriously misguided.
Real inefficiencies will arise in a few years after open homosexuals have risen in rank/rate perhaps starting at the level of Corporal. It is then that retention of heterosexual men is certain to plummet.
In many segments of the business world open male homosexuals typically bring to a supervisor-subordinate relationship a lifetime of social difficulties and generally are unable to effectively manage heterosexual men. Add to this, the fact that most heterosexual males who are confident in their sexuality resent being supervised by a homosexual who is not otherwise obviously very well qualified for the undertaking.
Move from the business world to the demanding environment of the military where there can be a constant higher level of stress and where superiors are sometimes not very well qualified or skilled in the art of leadership and the outcome is predictable.
I would say that in years past if you went into a recruiting office in drag they would throw you out.
Now they will make you officer material.
Oh yes, I believe there will be a draft also. I think, however, that all the gays pushing for this and supporting it didn’t think that far ahead. They want the right to join the military openly but I don’t believe the majority actually want to serve and *gasp* maybe be killed.
(MAJOR SARCASM ALERT!) We have it on good authority that the Boy Scouts are being pushed by Kevin Jennings to add this new and distinctive badge to the Scout program:
Gives new meaning to the saying,
“never leave your buddies behind”
This can even apply to very liberal supervisors/managers ! They are all about themselves and they always talk about how society doesn’t benefit when you try to enjoy life like take vacation or enjoy the money you earn.

I would not want a dyke looking at my body,especially while in the shower.
I suspect we already have some occupying seats at the Joint Chiefs position.
Military is downsizing dramatically, it will not be consider a major employer by mid year 2010. I suspect thousands will be added to the unemployment roles from the military.
I meant mid year 2011, sorry
Adm Roughead's gratuitous I am pleased... statement re the repeal was an unfortunate choice of words and could be seen by some as compromising the discretion of his officer corps.
Gen Amos USMC who was an early outspoken critic at the highest levels of any repeal, is not buying it.
His words, when faced with passage of the troublesome legislation, "I will lead..." is what one would expect of a Marine officer, or any military officer for that matter. He is telling his officer corps in essence to stand fast, he will do everthing in his power to make this right.
Too bad there are some critics here on FR that do not see that.
