Just on Fox. Obama sending Congress a bill to triple over the next several years the premiums service people, their families, and retirees will have to pay for TRICARE medical coverage. Dem congressman on Fox claims that the military have too good a deal on medical coverage and "it's only fair to increase their permiums." Repub disagrees. Notes that Obama's buddies in civilian military jobs (i.e. unions) will see no increase.
AKA, let’s kill off the military first. That way, we gets us our own homies in there.
Those who are our declared enemies and captured receive unlimited healthcare while the men getting shot while defending this nation receive little.
Contrast it with what most free-loaders are paying...
And I include Congress and the usurper in that group.
I have the answer, increase the union goons premiums 3x and keep the military and retirees at current the premiums.
Yet 0bama fully backs the unions who cry and moan about picking up a portion of their medical costs.
Good point ... One way to deal with this is remove Medical Care as a basic human right. Stem the tide of illegals using the ER as their primary means of seeing the Doctor. When you have a large number of using the hospital free of charge; those of us with insurance, or who actually work for a living; get nailed paying for the free-loaders.
Am I remembering right, that a while back the military was pushing “counseling” where wounded soldiers were supposed to analyze whether it would be easier on their families if they just died rather than going through rehab?
Obamacare just made it so that Muslims have a free pass to be the free-loaders. IIRC it was the day after Obamacare passed that an imam declared that insurance is “gambling” and thus against Islam. So Muslims don’t have to be insured.
I’ve wondered if that means that Muslims can’t drive a car - or if that means that the “uninsured” insurance I have to buy is a dhimmi tax that I pay in subservience to the Muslims who don’t have to be insured.
SO MANY signs of creeping sharia.
$36/Month is a fraction of what I pay. Of course, in my job I don’t have to worry about our country’s enemies shooting at me.
I see. Please describe the times in your civilian job you were shot at, came under artillery fire, and were wounded, and how many times you were sent away from your family for a 1-3 year unaccompanied tour.
Most working class people didn’t move every couple years, dragging their families with them. Most working class people didn’t spend weeks, months or even years seperated from their loved ones. Most working class people have not had to endure hardships like that of the military.
One of the carrots dangled in front of GI’s to get them to commit to 20+ years was the free health care. It was the deal they made with the rest of America to protect the freedoms we have.
Where were you when the Shiite hit the fan? Probaby sitting on your fat assets. Sad Sack of Siberian Sheep Shiite.
Boehner and McConnell will simultaneously America and what is remaining of the GOP.
That’s what we get for looking the other way and continue to vote for progressives in the GOP!!!
Their plan is playing out just like they expected.
I remember that. Can’t find a link now. Interesting.
It’s spine and guts time for the RNC, Conservatives, the Tea Party, and We The People or else, IMO.
No problem. Send it back with black letters stamped
I made a quilt for a wounded soldier, along with matching friendship bracelets - one I have on my left arm at all times to remind me to pray for him and one for him to have so he can know that I’m praying for him. One of the things I pray for the most is the courage and hope to keep pressing on in his recovery, as well as a sense that he is loved, respected, and appreciated, and that he has a purpose for being here.
Just like everything I’m trying to accomplish in my life, seems like I’m paying my government to undo it. Everything in my being is saying to that soldier, “Live and prosper!” And my government is tapping their foot and saying, “Can’t you just die already?”
To help me know how better to pray, I watched “Black Hawk Down” for the first time a while back. I watched it again just 2 nights ago while I put newspapers together. I am struck again and again with the knowledge that our arrogant usurper is unworthy to even lick clean the latrines of those guys.
The incident portrayed was not the only one at that time.
Also watch “The Kingdom,” if you haven’t. There’s a perspective, right there. A couple of characters are lame, though.
From the movie script:
“DOJ pol type: I’m gonna bury you.
The answer from the Director/guy in charge (DC setting. Fancy office): You know, Westmoreland made all of us officers write our own obituaries during Tet. When we thought the Cong were gonna end it all right there. And once we clued in to the fact that life is finite, the thought of losing it didn’t scare us anymore.
The end comes no matter what. The only thing that matters is how do you want to go out? On your feet or on your knees?
I bring that lesson to this job. I act knowing that someday this job will end, no matter what.
You should do the same.”
