“I think a lot of people are,” Lacy said. “In the field environment, you’re in very close proximity to one another. The fact that someone could be openly gay could exacerbate stress on teams and small units when you’re already at a high stress level.”
However, 71 percent of respondents said they would continue to serve if the policy was overturned."
The other link said that 71 percent of Americans polled wanted DADT overturned!!
Now our representatives in Washington are not listening to us cause they didn't pass that bill this week.
Finally someone with some sense of what is at the issue - Thanks Kate.
Now consider Than in time of war only say 15 to 20% are at (front line conditions) - the rest are support and counting the civilian support as well.
So 71% of respondents have never been in close quarters with gays -- well I should say that a large number of the 71% have never been aside from basic training.
The FACT that 100% of Senate Republicans voted no -- filibustered -- the defense appropriations bill to make a political stand against any Obama accomplishment. GOP senators that had favored repeal of DADT voted to kill repeal of it. That's 100% GOP Senate vote to filibuster funding troops in wartime too, that's how much they hate our President. And after they voted Sen. Chambliss staffer posts online "“all faggots must die.”. That is not trump up shiit. That's 100% messed up.
I would like to see the Military own surveys and not some trump up shiit.
This is close to the wording of the bill. It does not actually repeal DADT but allows the military to make up its own mine when their study is complete. Since everyone knows the military is OK with repealing and the study is going to find out that the foot soldier doesn't mind either makes it pretty much a repeal of DADT.
That makes the filibustering described by Gary even more deceitful/
