National Guard in OK.

It appears Gov Mary Fallon of OK has so much animosity for gays in the National Guard that she has suspended all benefits for all couples in the Guard. They must go to a Federal facility to get their benefits.

As a former longtime San Francisco homeowner, employee, resident and taxpayer for around 25 years I can tell you for certain that in SOME places, the "Love That Dares Not Speak Its Name" --- * N E V E R * shuts up.

Not sure what that has to do with the linked article about discrimination against gay guard members.

Perhaps he will take his own advice from another thread and start a separate thread if he wants to discuss something not relevant to this topic.

Jim, try counting the times "heterosexuals" do the same . . . I'd love to see if there's a frequency difference and on which side it leans to.

Just look at advertising. Sex is used to sell everything.

Gov. Fallin is caught between her Tea Party supporters and reality. The world is moving too fast for her to deal with, so instead of trying to come up with a system workable to all she has just shut her eyes to the situation and is hoping it will go away.

Fallin has had to make a decision to support our troops or to not support them. She has chosen the easy path for her and not those in the military.

It will be interesting to see if her lack of support for our troops translates into a lack of support for her when elections are held.

Gov. Fallin did something that She knows is going to end up being reversed.

It is simply another Politician trying to cater to Her supposed supporters.

When the Feds reverse what She did She gets to tell Her supporters that She tried.

We are looking for a few good MEN, not girly boys to serve.

Todays military is definitely not your father's military.
