I was listening to NPR this morning and got really… frustrated.
I keep thinking… WTF!!!
Why? Oh, do tell…
They keep saying that they will get rid of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell when they are sure that it won’t cause the military readiness to be harmed.
Really? Come on… REALLY?
Oh yeah… I know… all of a sudden having perfectly willing, oh, yeah, and perfectly not scared of someone figuring out that they are hiding things from everyone because they would be found lacking because they are who they are… having people that aren’t scared of the FRIENDLIES…. yeah, that means we will be LESS ready.
Can someone please help me to understand how that works.
I understand that people are scared that they will get contaminated somehow… if they are in close proximity to people who are attracted to the same gender. Because a woman loves another woman or a man loves another man would actually make them incapable of following orders or shooting someone before they, themselves, got shot? Really?
Or because now you have people that can (are willing and capable) serve without fear of their own team of soldiers who will now be able to bolster our military…yeah… having MORE serving in our military will SO make us less ready.
It isn’t like we are still looking for excuses or anything is it? Naw, that can’t be it… that would mean that people are shoveling a bunch of refuse on our heads again… and we KNOW that can’t happen…
Geeze, quit tap dancing and get over your big bad self.
I have friends. Funny… I have more friends than I ever dreamed sometimes… makes me smile… I don’t have gay friends (in one category) and straight friends (in another category) and never the two shall touch… I have friends. Why is that so wrong? Why can’t the world… why can’t people… just be that way… I can’t be THAT weird, can I?
