Huge Pandora’s box has just opened.
As sure as I am that there will be problems, I’m even more certain that we won’t hear about them. No Pentagon stats will be released, or even compiled. Any reported incidents will have any mention of homosexuality washed out.
Well, now we’ll see what happens. If a year from now, two years from now we see that there are problems, that unit cohesion is degraded, that recruitment or morale is down, that the effectiveness of the force is down, then it shouldn’t be that hard to get a new law put in place.
I mean if we start getting routed by the Taliban next year or in 2012 then I think the GOP won’t have that difficult a time changing the rules. To be honest, we haven’t exactly been kicking ass with the current law in place. And polling shows that the public largely supports this by well over 60%. Unfortunate, but true.
I don’t think there are that many gays in the military to begin with. Will this open the floodgates? I doubt it.
I’m at least willing to see what happens. Not every prediction of doom comes true.
In terms of long term impact, the DREAM Act and the START Treaty are much more important. If we get to the end of the session and we end up with with the tax rates extended, no DREAM Act, no START, but DADT is repealed, I’d say that’s about as good as we could expect given themakeup of the Congress. Come Jan 1 everything will change and the Dems won’t get anything.
I feel sorry for American youth who join the military, they are sooooo used and abused. I wish there was a way for them to better their lives rather than having to submit themselves before this Politically Correct BS PANSY way that is America today.
A large percentage of Hitler's brownshirts and SS sinned in this manner before God.
The normal patriotic god fearing Boy-Scout majority types currently enlisted will not fire on or disarm American citizens of the same type.
Gays and liberals HATE Christian "gun nuts".
The time for preparation is coming to and end.

WARNING: FOR ADULTS ONLY
You are 100% correct, and I am sure there are even people here on Free Republic who have no idea what is about to transpire.
I served 21 years as an Air Force officer and pilot, and worked several years after that as a defense contractor with both DoD civilians, other contractors, and active duty personnel.
Here is what is going to happen:
1. There will be a massive new "training" program that all active duty, DoD civilians, and DoD contractors will have to undergo regarding this new "policy." If the "Equal Opportunity Training" the military has forced down people's throats in the past is an accurate indicator (and it is), then this new "training" will be authoritative, dictatorial, and corrupt. Anyone refusing the training, or not "head nodding" during its propaganda sessions will be called out and persecuted for not towing the line.
2. There will be massive "payback" by many homosexuals in any sort of leadership or supervisory position in the military and the Dept of Defense. They will be strutting like peacocks, and looking to retaliate against anyone they feel has "oppressed" them in the past.
3. The above two events will lead, inevitably, towards incredible persecution of one group: Christians. Any believing Christian who dares speak the truth about what God Himself calls this terrible sin (an abomination) will be hunted down, persecuted, and destroyed.
4. At a time when the military is getting is lowest pay raise in 50 years, retired military have not received a cost of living increase for the second year in a row, and DoD civilians are getting their pay frozen for 2 years - millions will now be spent for homosexual "partners" housing, health care, dental care, insurance, and increased pay increments for dependents (which is meant for families with children).
5. Now that this perversion is officially endorsed, every other perversion (incest, bestiality, pedophilia) will come out of the "closet" and demand recognition and applause.
Finally, this nation will bring the wrath of the Almighty God upon us. This unhappy truth will become manifest.
Our great military will be destroyed with the stroke of Obama's pen. Satan must be laughing tonight.
"Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity."
Romans 1: 26-28
Major loss of the free exercise of religion.
I hope all the non-leftist Obama-Congressional RAT voters out there who said "What harm could he do, Clinton didn't do much damage in 2-4 years" are happy with themselves.
The destructive actions of these vermin in 2 years has been massive.
Yes, we have "stopped" them with last November's vote, but
The RATS are burning down the house like Saddam Hussein did the oil fields on their way out.
The American military and it's 200+ years of success, warriorhood and culture, essentially no longer exists as of today. Within 2 to 5 years, none of us will even recognize it.
December 18, 2010, a day that will live in infamy.
The military is all about singularity and cohesiveness. The unit principle. Homos by nature demand attention, energy and special treatment simply because they bum each other. They will draw all energy and resources away from the general population.
The Progressives destroyed the finest military on earth without a single shot being fired.
Just consider what this leads to:
Scenario 1: A good Bible belt boy has to room with a gay activist flamer type. They sleep in the same room. Share duties and showers and the Bible belter is now forced to listen to the homosexual talk hours on end on the cell phone with his current same sex lover.
In the meantime, the homosexual has been asked by another platoon member, also gay, to tell him about the statistics of the straight Bible belter's private parts. Because he is attracted to him but knows there isn't a chance he'll ever see him naked.
In the meantime, the Bible belter gets wind of the two and their discussions about him. What do you think would happen? This is only ONE possible scenario.
The Senate completely eliminated and destroyed the morale of our armed forces today. They are too perverted and too stupid to realize it yet. Or too mentally sick to care. Or they seek the complete destruction of this great nation. We are now Rome.
All downhill from here.
Our congress should pass a bill to go along with the don’t ask don’t tell that will cover all manner of sexual perversion’s .
For the troops that like bestially we will have new barn’s erected on all military bases for all the little critters to be housed in.
There will also be motel’s for the use of prostitute’s as the lady of the night need not to be out on the street’s .
There will play ground’s and parks for the pedophile’s to indulge their pleasures on the children In and around our bases,
Let’s not forget those troops that like there mother , sisters , brothers , we need special places for this incest.
For those in the navy ,we will have the same thing for them on a new fleet of ship’s called the love boats.
Homosexuality, fetishism, transvestism, zoophilia, pedophilia, exhibitionism, voyeurism, sexual masochism, sexual sadism, and “atypical paraphilia”.
Where will it stop after all under the constitution are not these rights to be protected the same as gay’s life style
What could possibly go wrong?
