Sarge's rant for the day
First, Obama, who I have no use for whatsoever, has a "D" beside his name. That means he's going to take his shot at tearing at the military. It's just what Dems do.
This is nothing more than a blatant payoff to his gay backers.
Second Mullen, for his comments today, should resign. I would venture to say that 98% of military is straight. So what Mullen in effect said today is "Hey, you 98% majority, if you don't like serving with the 2% minority, for whatever reason, get out."
Now, even if we were fat and happy like we were in the 80's, that might not be so bad. But we don't have enough people now to keep from having to send troops to Iraq and/or Afghanistan multiple times over the years
And yet Mullen just cavalierly says "Get out".
I've spoken to some of my old troops who are now Chiefs and such. For one thing, most of them never saw this survey. The few that did said it never asked "Do you approve repeal of DADT?" Yes/No. Instead, the survey was given and it was insinuated that repealing DADT was a forgone conclusion. In addition, in order to take the survey they had to use their CAC cards to gain access, and those are traceable.
Now who is going to answer honestly when you can be traced and you go against the prevailing political winds?
Think that skewd the results?
Third. It appears there has been very little thought to the logistical nightmare this WILL create.
Case in point. You have a tranny come in with 44D's. Where does it shower? Where does it sleep? Does it wear the mens uniform or the womans?
And you know the ACLU will be right there along with said tranny making sure it gets it's rights and that no one bothers it or looks at it wrong. If that happens, then a perfectly good straight troop is going to be up the creek
Fourth, Gates (Who also should resign) has already said troops would have to undergo sensitivity training. I'm sorry, but do you realize how much annual training troops undergo every year? Now, on top of everything else and fighting a war, we're going to go to fairy training too.
Fifth, what happens when Bob and Neil get married in one state and get PCS'ed to a state that does not reconize gay marriage? An who's going to change the UCMJ, the military regulation that bans sodomy?
I haven't heard a peep that indicates anyone has given these things any thought.
All of this because a Marxist want to pay his gay buds back
