    57% of the American people haven't served in Uniform. How about a poll of veterans and active duty people. I think you will find way different results. Of course I could be wrong; but if they favor it they will also favor a separate Pink Brigade.

    ‘Don’t ask’ survey published - Air Force News, news from Iraq - Air Force Times

    Within three years, the numbers will be even lower than that.

    I respectfully disagree with the notion that the opinion of the military should drive this issue. The military works for the American people, not the other way around.

    If we should base what action we take, If any, based on a poll of those affected, We should make sure that the 48million without Healthcare are the ones that decide if we get REAL health reform or not. Don't like that idea so much now do you?

    We'll let the 85% who buy health care and pay their way decide if they want to pay for you guys who don't pay your way. That will work.

    Did you bother to look up the actual poll to see exactly what it said? No you didn't.


    11. All in all, do you strongly favor, favor, oppose, or strongly oppose allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military?
    Strongly favor 14.5%
    Favor 15%
    Neutral 18.7%
    Oppose 14.2%
    Strongly oppose 36.8%
    Decline to answer 0.8%

    So 29.5% favor

    51% are opposed

    and 18.7 % haven't a clue how they feel.

    Things that make you go hmmmm......

    Less than 30% of active duty troops favor repealing DADT. There are the cold hard facts.

    18.7% just don't care if they are allowed in. If you want to spin the poll to try and suit your bigotry, be my guest.

    Those of you who have never served, and probably never will, should actually just keep your noses out of military business. Because it really doesn't affect you or your personal life one bit. It does affect that young troop who may have to live with and share a shower with a homosexual of the same sex.

    I wouldn't wish that on any of our troops.

    You can call me a bigot but I'm sorry it just isn't right.

    And since I have been there, and since i do have a gay family member. I can take any stance on the subject i want. And hey, I guess I'm more qualified than you are. Unless of course you are coming out of the closet. Then you got me on that one.
