I seldom agree with John McCain

But in this case, I'm willing to make an exception.  I thought I might be the only one who saw the obvious flaw in the Grand Study by the Pentagon regarding attitudes towards gays serving openly in the armed forces.  Apparently 400,000 questionnaires were sent out.  About 20% were returned.  Of those, around 30% said it could create problems if gay were allowed to openly serve.  Of course the media and pentagon officials serving an extremely left leaning president were quick to spin this as SURVEY SHOWS NO PROBLEMS WITH REPEALING DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL. 

But I thought about the relatively weak return of the surveys.  This is the military.  Why were so few returned?  Intimidation? After all, in our society, if you openly oppose homosexuality you are labeled a Nazi homophobe bigot scum who probably should feel damn lucky you're still allowed to have rights.  Certainly those who are gay most likely sent them in with full approval.  But why so many that didn't?  And again, the studies have said there is a low risk in repealing it.  But is there any risk in keeping it?  If there is no risk in maintaining things as they are, then any risk becomes more risk.  Again, another example where we don't let a little thing like facts, data, and common sense in the way of promoting the Gay Agenda. 

BTW, FWIW, I always thought the Don't Ask/Don't Tell policy was rubbish.  But why create any change in a war that we are losing when everything else is already going against us?

  1. I agree any risk is too much. If there is a risk why change it? If there is no risk in letting it alone then why take a chance on there being a risk at all.
    Now the whole survey thing- I suppose that there also could be the attitude of - I have more things to worry about than filling out some stupid survey that my answers will not really matter on anyway. Just a thought.
