Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Think

Open homosexuality in the military (didn’t anybody learn from the ill-conceived experiment of
putting men and women together ?) introduces sexual tension capable of destroying the
cohesion and discipline that is necessary for effectiveness. Does anyone recall the
“enlightened” decision Minneapolis made to install a lesbian fire chief? Double points for
gender and sexual orientation. It was a disaster and she made no secret of making decisions
based on sexual favors and favorites.
