  • It seems anything can be ruled "unconstitutional." Doesn't means gays and lesbians are going to be welcomed into the military.

  • Our military has been well on it's way to being PCified..one day it will be so PCified that the might won't be so much so any longer..Our troops find themselves with their hands tied behind their backs during war time..too often.

    I do not care if gays serve..I just see no real reason for everyone to know they are gay..

    How would you like working somewhere that you lived at work 24/7 and not being allowed to mention your husband, your children, or anything that in any way indicated you were involved in a relationship with a man?

  • That's one of the things that's interesting. The government has said it would appeal. It seems paradoxical that the Obama Administration would defend something it wants to end. They do have the option of NOT appealing.
