Let me be clear. I love this Country. But I do disagree with one idiotic law that we have on the books, namely, Don't Ask/Don't Tell. I disagree with others also, but that's for later.
Our Government says, If you don't tell me your gay, I won't kick you out of the Military. And, oh by the way, I'm not allowed to ask if your gay, so fear not.
How stupid is this?
So, gays and lesbian patriots who want to serve in our military are forced to lie about who they really are. Oh, I get it now. Makes perfect sense.
I wish my employer would institute DADT in our work place, concerning liquor. "I won't ask if your drinking, but if you tell me your drinking, I'll fire you."
I swear, I don't have a drinking problem, but I could really go for a pint of Guinness right now, because I just finished watching the "talking heads" on Larry King Live discuss the pros and cons of this issue, and I need a drink.
Just a few things I learned.
1) Those darn gays will undermine our NATIONAL SECURITY!
2) Those darn Lesbians will ruin Unit cohesiveness.
3) If we let THEM in the Military, we may have to re-institute the draft because all the manly men will drop their M16's and run for the hills. (To safety I guess)
I planned initially to go on and on in this post , on this subject, but you'd be better served checking out Navy Wife, where she explains better than I can, how idiotic this law is.
Just think, within the year, if President Obama is correct, we can actually begin to phase out lying in the Military.
