The US military should allow gays and lesbians to serve. Right now recruiting shortfalls are such that they cannot afford to turn an otherwise qualified candidate away. Any person who is the most qualified applicant for a particular government job should not be turned down for reasons unrelated to the task at hand.
In my case I would need a waiver because I have Attention Deficit Disorder. That's fine, because I am perfectly content to stay in the private security business for the time being, and ADD could be a serious liability in a combat situation. ADD causes me to have this issue of losing focus at the task at hand and start talking about something totally unrelated. One of my tires was going bald so I had it replaced. I should get them rotated more often. The car drives a lot better on slick surfaces now that I got that fixed. But that's another post.
I also feel that college campuses should do without federal funding. The federal tax rate should be lowered, and states can for the time being raise their own rates so that such funding can continue on a state level. But that's another post
The "don't ask don't tell" policy is one particular flaw that some law schools have decided is grounds for excluding military recruiters from their campuses. But the US military is still as much a force for good as lawyers are, if not more. If there were no US military, there would be no federal government to provide them the funding in the first place and no US courts for their graduates to practice law in. Law schools should either turn down federal funding, or allow the military to recruit on campus.
