Obama Rams Gays Into The Military "This Is My Rifle, This Is My Gun . . .

. . . This Is For Shooting, This Is For Fun," is what we boot Privates at Parris Island had to shout while running around the old, wooden Second Battalion barracks if we called our rifle a "gun." Since Googling, I don't have to be more descriptive as to what the disciplinary measure was about. It had something to do with a Private's privates, and not confusing them with the Private's weapon. *

In President Obama's State Of The Dysfunctional Union Speech Wednesday night, he promised to deliver on his threat and payback of opening the military front door [as opposed to back door] to, as the British used to say, buggers. Aside from religious objections there are many more "practical" reasons for the American military not allowing the admission of outed homosexuals, primarily because of their occasional lust for other men. Duhhh.

Well, I have heard it constantly reiterated that, "I don't care what sexual orientation they, are as long as they can shoot a gun to protect me." The fact is, that out of the nearly 2.5 million active and reserve members of the U.S. Military, very few are shooting "guns," although every enlistee is essential and not to be undervalued in any way. Its not the gay shooting a gun that is worrisome, it is what they have a proclivity to do during, what may be called, their leisure time.

Thirty-six crew members of the USS Acadia were pregnant and had to be transferred during the supply ship's deployment to the Persian Gulf, naval officials said. This is just one story among thousands of similar reports where sexually attracted people in close quarters get closer. Why would it not be the same for gays? Should we be glad that gays, at least, cannot get one another pregnant? I'm sure the Politically Correct, liberated Pentagon will be offering surgical operations, soon enough, so that there may be more fairness and less discrimination for gay males who cannot conceive. I leave no impossibility to Gates or to the rest of Team Obama.

I know, and I've heard, that we are so advanced and progressive in our American thinking (re: the liberalized Army Times and Stars And Stripes military newspapers) that its about time that we get with it, and do the thing which would be thought of as being just stuck on stupid by an Eisenhower, a Patton, a Lincoln or Washington, ten years ago. Why, I saw a couple of youngish, blondish conservative intellectuals on O'Reilly arguing how necessary it was for the greatest military force in the world to "sweeten" up the armed forces a bit.

I guess O'Reilly's blondish intellectuals do not identify very well with the raging hormones of younger recruits, both male and female, and that military rules - like not schtupping your bunkmate - are even now largely ignored by heterosexual active military members. Military divorce, adultery, unwanted pregnancy, domestic jealousy, sexual distraction and violence has become a huge, unheard, and ignored problem within today's progressive military, as led by Clinton Pentagon holdovers. Obama's military geniuses just recently decreed that there should be no punishment for women (married or not) who get themselves impregnated in Iraq - or wherever they may be stationed. Cramming all this flesh together in such close confines amplifies the potential disasters waiting to happen. The twenty-some countries which do permit outed gays into the ranks of their military organizations cannot not be compared to the U.S., because of the magnitude of duties and scale of the U.S. military, historically or futuristically.

Of course, O'Reilly's perky and cute, blond-haired military experts may not understand the ramifications of joining sexual opposites, or sexual similars, as in the case of gays, in close quarters, but as a Vietnam veteran, who witnessed what happens -its not pretty. Do not listen to those who see no harm in modernizing our American military so that it resembles those "fighting machines" in Sweden, Uruguay, and Lithuania, as they do not have the record, the experience, or the "boots on the ground" expertise as our United States Armed Forces do - until this point in time. President Obama will be known as the most reckless, and possibly, last President of the United States. It is as if he was born and raised to destroy the U.S. And, the sadder thing is that I do not believe he has any idea what he is doing concerning everything from health care, to the economy, to the military. O'Reilly's blond haired advisers have more of a clue. Not much more.

The thing that even social conservatives are ignoring and overlooking is that younger people, whether they become upstanding members of the military, or not, tend to be more sexually liberal and permissive. I have no doubt that a majority of the current generation of active duty members may reflexively report that "gays cohabiting in the military" is fine. Remember, when you sign up for military service, you will be literally cohabiting with many of those 2 million members who proudly serve in today's U.S. forces.

Wanting to show the world that they are "informed," I could guess that, if polled, members of the military, and especially Clinton era staff and brass, see no harm in inviting, en masse, men-who-desire-other-men to abide together in tents, hooches, submarines, barracks, foxholes etc. The only thing that is more abundant than bullets in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines is testosterine. I really don't believe that O'Reilly's really cute blond military advisers understand this - at all.

Here is a quick list of those countries which do permit open gayness in their military. Yeah, we want to be like them: 2.1 Argentina 2.2 Australia 2.3 Austria 2.4 Belgium 2.5 Bermuda 2.6 Brazil 2.7 Canada 2.8 Czech Republic 2.9 Denmark 2.10 Estonia 2.11 Finland 2.12 France 2.13 Germany 2.14 Ireland 2.15 Israel 2.16 Italy 2.17 Lithuania 2.18 Luxembourg 2.19 The Netherlands 2.20 New Zealand 2.21 Norway 2.22 Peru 2.23 Philippines 2.24 Romania 2.25 Slovenia 2.26 South Africa 2.27 Spain 2.28 Sweden 2.29 Switzerland 2.30 United Kingdom 2.31 Uruguay .

I had enough trouble in Vietnam, but as a young Corporal and helicopter gunner with the Marines, witnessing a couple of very rare, I hope, gay lovers going at it in a latrine, was quite a blow, so to speak, and was not at all good for my morale, or the morale of my fellow Marines.

Letter To Pentagon, President Obama And Congress
Mr. President, Could We Not Run The Military Like Acorn?

"Here's A View From Someone Who Served In The Military In Vietnam. The point is also made that comparing African Americans with Homosexuals is a ploy. I served with Marines of all stripes and colors, and none of them jumped into my bunk - but a gay guy did. . .

It is beyond me how some of these armchair generals, who more likely than not, were comfortably populating the nonmilitary institutions of "higher learning" during the hippy-dippy days of the Viet Nam Era, can propose, that if the military disallows men who are erotically aroused by other men to enter the close confines of the service, then this is tantamount to racial hatred. The following relates my personal experience in the service, and please note, that in none of the situations described could the term "Afro- American" be used in lieu of "homosexual."

Black people can hardly be benefited by such comparisons. I am a disability retired Corporal who was medevaced out of Vietnam in 1970 after sixteen months service there, working in Aviation S-3 Operations, and as an occasional helicopter gunner crew member. I flew in areas in and around I Corps (the northern part of South Vietnam). My permanent disability rating is 70% Marine Corps, and presently 100% V.A. due to "nervous condition".

The main point of my letter is that my nervous condition was brought on by many factors emanating from Vietam service, including my witnessing two Marines in an operations building in Da Nang engaging in homosexual {NOT BLACK} activity. Another time, I remember one Marine {A HOMOSEXUAL, NOT A BLACK} who had the bad habit of hopping into the sack with several of us, while on mess duty, in Phu Bai - when we were asleep. Said Marine disappeared the following day, due to official or unofficial reasons. You don't mess around in a war zone. This is not a threat, but fraggings did happen.

There are other examples of this, and worse conduct, in the military and in the V.A. that I do not want to share at this time. I cannot enforce how demoralizing it was to observe this behavior {NOT RACE}. Shortly, thereafter, I was seeing a Naval "shrink" who prescribed medication that further weakened and depressed me. After ten years of military and V.A. psychiatric treatment, by the grace of God, I recovered enough to lead a non-medical-treatment life.

I vigorously believe, that we should not support the allowance for homosexuals {NOT AFRO-AMERICANS} to enter, or stay in, any section of the Department of Defense. Allowing women to be in close quarters with men is also idiotic - Look at the promiscuous behavior, lowered standards, and ensuing pregnancies (especially noticed in the Gulf, Iraq and other wars) already currently rampant. In Haiti it is reported that military men and women are sharing the same quarters with no privacy. Since adultery and divorce is already high among active service men and their wives, why make the temptations for heterosexuals as well as homosexuals {NOT BLACKS} even more abundant?

I have written others urging their reevaluations of these issues. That it seems incomprehensible to me why government leaders entrusted with the public's welfare would want to adopt such liberal, noneffective and corrupting measures is an understatement.

Other points to consider: What grand purpose could there be in exalting individual rights in the military?

The peaking hormones of young soldiers. "Sensitivity" of homosexuals and "gay"bashing

Same facility bathing and sleeping. AIDS and increased medical costs for gays.

There are countless testimonies of a multitude of command-level officers who have publicly condemned the ludicrousness of such thinking."

In the above testimony, I am concluding that witnessing homosexual behavior in the confines of a war zone or as permitted at the Veterans Administration at least contributed to the demoralizing of my self and other veterans I have spoken with.

Its just a plain, stupid idea that adds to President Obama's arsenal of other asinine ideas. May God Bless him.
