Gay Participation Hurts Neither
Military Nor Marriage

Reason, by A. Barton Hinkle

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 12/17/2012 2:32:25 PM

Did you catch the big story out of Afghanistan the other day—the one about how a U.S. platoon was decimated in a nighttime raid? The soldiers couldn’t fight effectively because their unit cohesion had disintegrated after one of them mentioned he is gay. How about the recent study showing it is now impossible to train new jarheads at Parris Island? Marine recruits are so afraid a gay bunkmate might be eyeballing them in the shower that they can’t follow even basic commands.(Snip)You didn’t hear about those developments? Don’t be alarmed. Nobody did—because they never happened.  Yet they certainly should have

Maybe, maybe not. Congress considered none of this when changing the law. Soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen will do what they need to do to implement the policy seamlessly. That does not mean there will be no downstream effects.
Roe v. Wade wasn´t going to result in hunreds of thousands of abortions nor diminish resopect for human life. That´s what we were told. What think you now?

Most people have not heard of Benghazi or Fast and Furious. Because a story has not appeared in the Monica Media does not mean it hasn´t happened. It just means the story does not fit with the media´s agenda. I don´t necessarily disagree with the author´s conclusion, but his reasoning is abysmal.

...And to continue #1´s thread, birth control was supposed to free women, make marriages stronger and solve all the world´s problems. Instead we got skyrocketing divorces, extra-marital affairs, cheapening of sex, women viewed as objects, teen pregnancy, STD´s through the roof, single mothers and 55 million dead babies. Some military people I´ve talked to says it IS a problem but they take care of things internally and the brass refuses to acknowledge nor make it publicly known the negative affects.

If an organization has 200 years of tradition, it takes longer than 14 months to destroy it.

I personally know of over 10 young men that joined different brances of the military with full intention of making it their careers.

They all decided not to re-up once the military was forced to take in homosexuals.

These were all fine young men, dedicated to serving their country. They are exactly the type of men you want on the front lines protecting our nation when called to do so.

But they signed up to serve, not to be part of a destructive and immoral social experiment. So they have moved on to other careers.

10 men don´t make or break anything. But they will readily tell you that they had plenty of buddies in the service that planned to get out as soon as they could. And they were all very dedicated and would loved to have made careers of it.

You can NOT redefine natural, biological, law in any real sense. You can pretend that sham ´marriages´ are the same thing, but you know it isn´t. You know someone is pretending to be something they aren´t which is a man wife or a wife man. I don´t care what the custom is with some tiny group pretending to be magical creatures or the opposite of what they are biologically, but I am concerned about the children who might be raised by them. Those kids are missing some important clues about humanity. Knee jerking over to dysfunctional ´straight´ marriages or unmarried households is NOT a defense. Slob parents don´t justify depriving boys and girls of a set of parents that demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of men and women, but also hopefully show the best of humanity which is a devoted couple in love with each other and the children they created. Anything else has issues. Some more than others, but pretending it is all harmless is bilge.

I recently went to a class meeting for my husband´s class at Annapolis and we were told by the class president, who now lives in Annapolis, that the day DADT was repealed was a non-event at the academy. It was just another day. A retired Vice Admiral friend of ours said that, in his experience, young people these days just don´t care. I have a family member in the service and when he was in high school one of his best friends came out to him and several of their friends. Everyone remained the best of friends, just as before, and this was at a boarding school. I was a huge skeptic of the repeal but even I have to admit that it doesn´t seem to be hurting anything. I was afraid that the flamers would move in and try to destroy the military from within but it isn´t happening. I hope it never does.

Marriage isn´t about love. It is about procreation. It is a unit by which the female can enhance the opportunities for her offspring to survive and thrive. By definition, homosexual copulation, in any form, has 0% chance of enhance the opportunities of the offspring. That’s because there isn’t any offspring. For centuries couples lived together as a family unit without the license from the state. Many had no sanction from the church. Marriage is about procreation and anything that diminishes that purpose harms marriage. Then again, gun free school zones have not been shown beyond a shadow of a doubt to harm anyone. Forcing people to buy corn based fuel hasn´t been shown to harm anyone. And forcing us to buy unwanted insurance hasn´t been shown to harm anyone. So no harm, no foul, eh? Or, to put it in the really real world perspective, everything our goobernment does is intended to harm us. Including this!

The liberal ideology, political correctness that has firmly established itself in the service has provided a cozy jumping point for this new social experiment.

Those of us who have served, and are still serving, for more than 33 years, understand what has taken place since the late 60s.

This article is bunk. Pure and simple.

One never knows the effect of new policies on society until many years later. We now see the results of pornograpy, drugs, alcohol, television, film, free love, easy divorce and a variety of other new fangled inventions of modernity. Gay marriage is new; we will eventually see the effects of this too.

Lets fix what has become broken.

The best comment here is No. 16. Remember the story about the guy who jumped off the Empire State Building. As he passed the 50th floor, someone yelled, ´´How are you doing?´´ He replied, ´´Fine so far.´´

If the excusers of perversion are right, there will be no harm from this. If the Bible is right, however, one kind of wrongness influences people to adopt many other kinds, too (Romans 1). So we have decided to conduct an experiment on the question, and we have put up the survival of our nation as the stakes. Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen, place your bets.

Well. All that is good to know. So now it´s time to sanction polygamy in the military. And let´s encourage the military dog handlers to have more if an intimate relationship with their dogs. Couldn´t hurt, right? It´s just those old Victorian biases that prevent us from having more meaningful relationships . And let´s encourage ploygamy within the military because then one serving overseas wouldn´t leave their mate home alone. There would be another still there. Yea, that sounds good. Or, we could encourage men to marry their daughters or sons. Sure, that´s it! Who are we to question what kind of relationships others want to have!

And if all this sounds rediculus, why? On what principle does one claim it´s rediculus? On what foundation do you plant the flag of "normality"? Or are you the hypocrite that agrees there sould be limits on where the line is drawn, it´s just that YOU want to be the one who draws the line?

What this free-wheeling society has come to Yesterday, as I waited in my car for my wife to finish shopping, out of the store came a man, not too old, and two young girls. The girls had such sad faces for this season. They couldn´t have been over 12, if that. As they passed in front of my car it was obvious that one was pregnant! My God! At such a young age! And such a shame. This society has fallen to new lows.

My Trip to the Pot Shop

Pueblo West, Colo. – It’s 9:00 A.M. on a weekday, and I’m at the Marisol Therapeutics pot shop. This is serious business. Security is tight. ID checks are frequent. Merchandise is strictly regulated, labeled, wrapped, and controlled. The store is clean, bright, and safe. The staffers are courteous and professional. Customers of all ages are here. There’s a middle-aged woman at the counter nearby who could be your school librarian. On the opposite end of the dispensary, a slender young soldier in a wheelchair with close-cropped hair, dressed in his fatigues, consults with a clerk.

ProPublica reporter Nina Martin has written a long and exceptional article about a disgraceful case in Mississippi that touches on two issues we’ve recently covered here at The Watch — the persecution of women accused of ingesting drugs while pregnant, and the dubious expertise of longtime Mississippi medical examiner Steven Hayne. Rennie Gibbs’s daughter, Samiya, was a month premature when she simultaneously entered the world and left it, never taking a breath. To experts who later examined the medical record, the stillborn infant’s most likely cause of death was also the most obvious: the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.

Annapolis Police Chief Michael A. Pristoop came prepared when he testified before a Maryland state Senate panel on Tuesday about the perils of legalizing marijuana. In researching his testimony against two bills before the Judicial Proceedings Committee, Pristoop said, he had found an article to illustrate the risks of legalization: 37 people in Colorado had overdosed on the very day that state legalized pot, he said.

A Drug Dog Named ´Guilty´

Over the last 20 years or so, the Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the alert from a drug dog is enough to establish probable cause for a search. The problem is that while it’s true that dogs have a finely tuned sense of smell, far better than any technology we humans have been able to develop, we’ve also bred into dogs a trait that can supersede that ability—an eagerness to please us. Without careful training, drug dogs will end up relying more on the body language of their trainers than on their olfactory prowess.

Drug policy and rationality go together like hot fudge and anchovies. From marijuana to Salvia divinorum, from cocaine to "bath salts," from absinthe to Four Loko, panic precipitates and perpetuates prohibition. The process can be observed every day as activists, politicians, and yellow journalists conspire to keep the American public alarmed about the psychoactive substances other people are consuming. Sometimes their best efforts are inadequate, as illustrated by the marijuana stores that will start opening in Colorado next Wednesday. More often, horror stories about what happens when people are allowed to exercise dominion over their own minds and bodies

The fourth-grader at Explorer K-8 School stood silently on Sept. 11, hands by his side, as his classmates recited the Pledge of Allegiance. A Jehovah´s Witness forbidden from worshiping objects, the boy´s behavior was not unusual. He had never joined his peers in the ritual of placing his right hand on his heart. He had never spoken the words: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands ... ." But that morning was different.

BLETCHLEY, England — A founding father of the modern computer, Alan Turing devised a machine that unraveled the enigma of Nazi codes and aided the defeat of Adolf Hitler. Convicted of homosexuality after World War II and sentenced to chemical castration, Turing — an avid fan of the film “Snow White” — was found dead in 1954 from cyanide poisoning, a bitten apple by his bedside.(Snip) Responding to a campaign by laureates such as Cambridge physicist Stephen Hawking, the British Parliament is moving toward granting Turing a posthumous pardon.

Yet another mass shooting, and flags fly across the country at half-mast to mourn the 13 dead at the Washington Navy Yard—well, 12 of them, anyway, since one of the bodies was that of the murderer. Gun control advocates wasted no time in demanding new restrictions on the means of self-defense. Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who used to carry a pistol for her own defense, responded to the crime by saying, "Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”

Here they go again. The Obama administration has asked its allies in Congress to introduce legislation that would permit the feds to continue their march through the Fourth Amendment when it comes to obtaining private information about all of us. The Fourth Amendment, which guarantees the right to be left alone, was written largely in response to legislation Parliament enacted in the colonial era that permitted British soldiers to write their own search warrants and then use those warrants as a legal basis to enter private homes. The ostensible purpose of doing that was to search through the colonists´ papers

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,
