If only American soldiers in Afghanistan were unemployed Democratic voters in Chicago, then they might be getting three square meals a day from the government.

This is shameful.

Aha!

That’s one reason why they made sure that military votes were not counted in the general election last November.

PHOOEY!!!!

Where I live, ALL students get a government-sponsored hot breakfast (not to draw attention to those coming from low income families). But our soldiers in Afghanistan don’t!!!!

I have a feeling he’s pushing all the buttons so they’ll unionize. Everthing he does is political.

Look how she shoves her head down to the plate when she eats.

You can give them all the bling in the world. They still have no class.

‘Dis here Obama done did d’at d’at even da Great Caesar did not do! He done gone and made mad his Praetorian Guards!

Really, folks, if you look at history, ( I know, I know it is hard reading!), every Roman Caesar that ticked off the Praetorian Guard, ended up in the River Po (yes, that is it’s real name!).

To close, I’ll quote an old Rabbi friend from long ago, in reference to our Fearless Leader:
“He should live so long!”

I wish it were. I have a hard time believing this, but then again there have been a lot of similar things that I had a hard time believing too, like selling guns to drug cartels.

Well of course....they can’t concentrate on their studies if they did not get a hot nutritious breakfast, don’t you know?

Meanwhile our troops will be fine putting their lives on the line with a couple granola bars a day.

I right here with you on that!

PS Hate is not a good word, I'm think more like loath and despise is more like it...

I’d rather see them go “Praetorian”.

What's the source? As per the referenced webite:

As originally reported on the congressional website of Republican Rep. Bruce Braley of Iowa (IA-01), the U.S. Army has stopped serving breakfast to American troops serving on 17 bases in Afghanistan. The measure, which will be extended further beginning this weekend, is one of the earliest stages in the U.S. military pull-out from Afghanistan.

On his website, Braley explained he learned about the military’s cutbacks from Iowa constituents whose family members are serving in Afghanistan.

I like some of the comments at the original site.

“All we had to eat was our horses.”

“You had horses? All we had to eat was horse shoes.”

“Horseshoes were a delicacy for Sunday brunch. Usually, we ate dirt.”

“We could only dream about eating dirt. Most of the time we ate our own fingers. Then, we sold our gloves.”

If we can get hot chow to the troops, and we aren’t, then someone needs a boot up their ass. And I don’t care what their rank is.

Democrat Bruce Braley is the odds-on favorite to replace Iowa Sen. Tommy ‘The Commie’ Harkin who is retiring.

You know, I can’t think of a single Democrat, private citizen or professional politician, who wouldn’t benefit mightily from a good ass kicking. I think they have too much space between their neurons. A swift kick in the behind, repeated as necessary, would close the distance between the neurons in a Democrat’s brain. And think about how good it would make you feel. Yep, I’m all for another national holiday.....NATIONAL KICK A DEMOCRAT IN HIS/HER ASS DAY. You could even develop special footwear. You could award prizes for distance flown and height achieved.

Reminds me of "Raising Arizona":

Ear-Bending Cellmate: ...and when there was no meat, we ate fowl and when there was no fowl, we ate crawdad and when there was no crawdad to be found, we ate sand.

H.I.: You ate what?

Ear-Bending Cellmate: We ate sand.

[pause]

H.I.: You ate SAND?

Ear-Bending Cellmate: That's right!

I am a big fan of Dan Greenfield. If Obama is pulling this crap, this is part of the reason I say America needs a Pinochet type leader to set things right.

Thank you for the source. I can think of an appropriate one word verbal description for the foul creature in the White House but its use would get me banned.
