After last week’s court ruling that shot down the 1993 law banning gays from openly serving in the military, the Defense Department said Tuesday it is accepting openly gay recruits.
The Justice Department is appealing the decision that struck down “don’t ask, don’t tell”, so the Defense Department is warning gay applicants that they may not be allowed to “stick around for long” (Source)
Beside the obvious question of: Why would anybody, gay or straight, want to join the military these days? And: Do you really trust signing your name over to the Defense Department? And: Do you know the Defense Department is really called the Department of War? Do you want to be a part of war, invading poor countries, and be used as a guinea pig for any experiment the Dept. of Defense feels like testing?
That’s a loaded paragraph of questions, sure to not affect you. But let me share with you a little knowledge (not wisdom, however) about the military, about the Pentagon, and about the Dept. of Defense.
Don’t ask, don’t tell.

I don’t care if you’re gay, straight, sideways, ugly, carbuncular, or a Martian. Why anybody would want to join the military baffles me.
Unless you’re that desperate for a job, which is the case sometimes. Otherwise, reject those bastards!
Dear Defense Department & Co.:
Stop marching your people into hostile areas of the world. Stop abusing the power of the many brave American soldiers who wish to serve their country. Stop exploiting us.
