My son had dreams of becoming a Navy Seal, not that he talked much about it, as he is the strong, silent type as much as one can be at almost 16.
This morning I told him to forget about that path as long as 0bama is CinC. I refuse to sacrifice him for that bastard! 0bama does not love this country and I guess half the people don’t love America either. No way, no how the armed forces. To defend, what?!
sadly, this president and his administration have shown they will not support the American military either at home (the Ft Hood “workplace violence”) or abroad (Benghazi).
And, at the other end of the spectrum, the retirees and vets who will quickly see massive changes to their healthcare benefits (first), then their retirement/benefit checks (consecutively w/ the first), and then fewer commissaries, BXs, etc. as the military continues to shrink to a trickle of strength. Add to that the weakening of the military thru the social policies being enforced, and it is not an optimistic future.
Our banker/enemy,China and our “frenemy”, Russia, along with our real enemies (radical Islamists and Iran) are circling like vultures. Don’t expect them to stay at bay either—the country just re-elected the president most likely to help China/Russia/the others succeed. (Along with the folks who voted for O again!)
We are a nation gone under, and Lady Liberty is crying her heart out...
Don’t worry, under Obama a Navy Seal will be an exhibit at the San Diego zoo.
I am sorry you had to crush your sons dream. thats a hard thing to have to do. but you did the right thing. My son voted for the first time this year. his vote didn’t count. Everything I’v taught my children is now wrong. work hard, pay your own way, be responsible...all that is going to do now is beat him down his whole life and make him bitter
