    Lt Ross is a Surface Warfare Officer, but thanks for playing "stupid stereotypes".

    I thought DADT was a bad idea to begin with. So do most of the military people I know.

    I have no problem with openly gay or lesbian men and women serving their country in the military.

    I am pleased this has been ended.

    While I approve of Obama ending this policy, he could have easily ended it with an executive order on his first day in office. Instead, like everything else he does, he took his sweet time, vacillated, hemmed and hawed. He even had a court re-instate the policy once it had been deemed unconstitutional, just so 'he' could be the one to officially end it, taking the credit.

    I know what a SWO is dumbfuck. Having served 20+ years in the Navy, I ran into my share of asshole, incompetent SWOs - as well as outstanding Naval JOs who ended up making flag.

    I disagree that it could have been done with an Executive Order. The only EO he could have issued was a stop loss on discharges...which would be overturned if any of the current GOP candidates won the Presidency.

    I never said you didn't know what it was, douchenozzle. I merely stated that Lt Ross isn't a "florist", but a SWO. Did you serve with him? If not, you have no idea what kind of officer he is, asswipe.

    (I don't understand this need to name call...but when in Rome :D )
