AP sources: Pentagon extending benefits for gays [Back door homosexual "marriage" ?]
Miami Herald--Associated Depressed ^ | 2/5/13 | Lolita C. Baldor

Posted on 02/05/2013 1:41:47 PM PST by Absolutely Nobama

WASHINGTON -- U.S. officials say Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is poised to extend some benefits to the same-sex partners of military members.

The policy change would come about 16 months after the Pentagon repealed its ban on openly gay service.

Officials say Panetta has not made a final decision on which benefits will be included, but the Pentagon is likely to allow same-sex partners to have access to the on-base commissary and other military subsidized stores, as well as health and welfare programs.

Any pair of friends, individuals, roommates, etc should be able to apply for the same benefits.

GREAT! When they’re ordered to shoot us, we know which way the bullets will fly, yup.

Let’s get the lisping spouses in short shorts, rolling their eyes, mincing, and flapping their arms around right into on-base housing, that’d be great...!

Angry people with guns are a problem they want to SOLVE...?

WOW...!

Of course they have. It's long been part of the plan to bring down the military health care system for both retirees and dependents.

Stage one is to get AIDS care paid for by the government.

Stage two is to complain about the "cost of dependent and retiree" care and to demonize them.

Stage three is to move it all to single-payer obamacare.

It’s past time to see about one million Americans, or more filling the streets in protest of this Constitution Bushwhacking Commie administration.

This ain’t America anymore. NOT when they can just flip the wee birdie to everything that is America, and walk away unscathed.

Soon to include free sex change operations for either or both partners and all their test-tube/turkey-baster progeny - as many times as they change their mind, for life.

This country should officially be placed on a suicide watch.

elections have consequences.

If all those people that stood in line for days for a lousy chicken sandwich actually voted, we might just be discussing tax cuts instead of the devolution of the US military.

We will soon see a mass migration of actual qualified officers and senior enlisted out of the service and an abandonment of the services by actual clergy who will be replaced by “faith counselors” loyal to Obama, their god.

America is now ancient Rome and Greece dying from within by wussification of the military - females in combat gays lesbians transgender and bisexual supported by US taxpayers to fight.

Come now do we really believe wussies will fight? Thyere will more issues of the faggos wanting to have sex and more sex. Hell the chinese will only have to light a fire cracker and the american wuss soldier will run into his/her/it armored vehicle and hoist up the white flag of surrender.

Damn the greatest generation has practically died off for this trash to come into existence.

At the (large, multinational) company I retired from, the only requirement to sign up a gay partner for benefit coverage was a signed affadavit from that person. Not a very high bar to get over.

Of course that brings a lot of complaints from unmarried heterosexual couples who then feel entitled to the same thing.

This cheese give away garbage has been going on since the 1950s. I remember as a kid driving by with my mom at this large warehouse place and the line of blacks outside. I asked her what that was all about and she said, free cheese and free powered milk. Every month the gov-mint gives away to them free stuff. That was way back then also, as now.

They have gone over the line, so far and so often, that they will experience push back.

Their entire agenda is full of godless perversion and debauchery, of our traditions, our culture, our education system, our morals, our religions, and our children.

They must and will be stopped, by the Grace of G-d.

We must turn our faces toward the Lord.

Had it with this socialist turd and his fairy pansy anal feces sex turd poking pals.

WE ARE supposed to be represented in DC and yet our voices are ingored , our views are ignored, the rule of law is ignored and the constitution is being ripped up and then we have idiots and cowards like Rove, Hannity and Perino telling us that we have to get along or none of them and I mean NONE of them ever mentioning social issues, HELL THEY;RE NOT EVEN CONSERVATIVE SOCIAL ISSUES and then we have what is supposed to be a media but instead is a mouth for this radical left over 60’s hippy admin
