In The Navy

More

"You know in the Navy in the late nineteen hundreds, homosexuality was rampant in the United States Navy. It was so bad that mothers would not let their sons enlist in the Navy until the Navy cleaned its act up ... On board ship the Navy found that there are three things unacceptable to good order and discipline and its impact on readiness. You cannot have a thief aboard, you cannot have a drug-user or a drug-pusher and we found out you could not have a homosexual," - Admiral James "Ace" Lyons (Retired), at the CPAC news conference yesterday denouncing any reform of DADT.

I'm not sure if he meant the last 1800s. It all blurs together in the end. But you really have to watch the entire video. It's truly priceless. It's like Abraham Simpson on acid.
