Why? Being gay is purely sexual exhibition if the person is open. I don’t accept it as anything other than sexual harrassment. I DON’T WANT TO KNOW!

Sorry, Rummy, but the impact of this on the U.S. Armed Forces is a “Known Known”.

Guess this is the Army he wishes he had.

You watch—the repeal of DADT will be the spearhead for gay marriage to be recognized in the military and then, in society.

And once marriage can no longer be kegally defined as between one man and one woman, there will be no way to legally confine marriage to just two people or even just two humans.

And that is what comes next.

In just 30 years, the gay agenda will have been implemented.

previous post—”kegally” should be “legally”.

But with the topic at hand, “kegally” just might fit.

No, no, NO!

No place for queers in the military. Period.

If you remember the TV show; Green Acres premise:

Much of the humor of the series derived from the pragmatic yet short-fused Oliver attempting to make sense of the largely insane world around him. There seemed to be a dual perspective of reality: Oliver versus everyone else. terrace, etc.

I am starting to get an Oliver complex....

You first Rummy. A shower is waiting for you. Or how about Rummy sleeping in a room with 150 that’s about 30’X30’. Rummy the Grand Engineer of Carter’s Hollow Military and the founder of the mid 1970’s Walk Away and Leave It instant discharge program. What a clown. Not a good Sec of Def either time.

None of the hosts that I heard interview Rumsfeld asked him about not fighting the wars aggressively enough, or our soldiers being prosecuted. He was given a pass by the hosts like Levin, Gallagher. They just talked about the left attacking him. I like Rumsfeld, but he wasn’t great.

We do know that Rumsfeld had a particularly high degree of acceptance for sexual sadism.

He didn't once come forward with the slightest idea about how to keep folks like the guards involved in the Abu Ghraib scandal OUT OF THE SERVICE.

“We’ve seen it evolve in our country,” Rumsfeld said of the nation’s perception of gays and lesbians...

This is an enormous logical fallacy which I see repeated more and more often. First, this "acceptance" of homosexuality as normal has not "evolved"; it was forced on us. A majority of the country NOW doesn't approve of homosexual marriage, for instance, yet the courts are forcing it on us and Hollywood and most other media are promoting it heavily, all while leftwing teachers are brainwashing our kids with it. This has not been an evolution of culture - it has been a force feeding, and now the force feeders are saying, "well, now that you've eaten it, I guess you must like it."

With all due respect, Rumsfeld - take your disgusting opinion and shove it back from whence it came!

Crazy how all these supposed Republicans or conseravative are all jumping on the Sodom and Gomorrah bandwagon.

Separating the sheep from the goats big time.

PS - DJ, lost my link to the lists. Might as well have it and save it someplace in case comp really bites the dust.
