Now that Congress has done the deed and approved open "gays" in the military, I thought I'd repost a few blog entries from the past. Prior to this latest foray into social experimentation, the military already had a significant problem with male on male sex abuse (about 7% of the reported cases of physical abuse - not counting verbal harrassment). We can expect things to get worse. Why wouldn't they? What fun those open showers in the barracks will be for the gay guys ogling "the junk" on their fellow soldiers and making lewd comments. Ooo-la-la! And then there are the less endowed guys.
Does anyone really think most men will report sexual harrassment? And if they did, who do you think would be targeted in the new politically correct scenario of he-said, he-said?
My greatest fear is the likelihood that scores will be settled in battle zones with a little "(un)friendly fire." Remember the persecuted TSA agent who finally used his baton on a co-worker? Consider the firepower being carried by 18-year-old kids. Let's face it, when alternatives are limited, some folks take things into their own hands. John F. Kennedy recognized the truth of that when he said, "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." We keep hearing the elites at the top saying that the guys in the trenches wanted repeal of the ban, but 63% percent of military families surveyed said, "No!" Did anyone listen to those most affected by the change? As usual, no! We fought a revolution against a king who would not listen to his subjects. Who's listening now? We're all serfs and wage slaves to the elites in the White House and on Capitol Hill.
God help our poor country.
