It has only been very recently that society has ques...

Do you think some of the new military policy has change people view of today's military?

When we look at today's military policy that was push to our military in the last 10 years and compare them to the policy of the 1940, there are no effect on how our military go out to protect this great country. I say this because of Executive Order 9981 is an executive order issued on July 26, 1948 by President Harry S. Truman. It abolished racial discrimination in the United States Armed Forces and eventually led to the end of segregation in the services. Also don't forget we have fought in 1...

I totally disagree with sex before marriage. Why? Sex is like a drug, when someone tries to do it, they want to do it over and over again, when they really do that it means that they gonna try to do it with the different ones, they will get bored with someone they have done sex with, and they do it with another ones. That's very danger for the people who do that, sex before marriage can destroy this country, first this country can be filled with people who are immoral, because they think that is...
