This from the man who can’t figure out how to win in Afghanistan. Here’s a piece of advice...he should receive no retirement as punishment for being a loser. And that’s being gracious. He should be giving speeches to his fellow prisoners.

Before we chop the military budget, and especially troop pay or benefits we need to secure the border and deport all illegals ASAP. Illegals are a huge burden on our medical services, education system, all social services, and our judicial/jails, prisons. We could save a large chunk of change and open up jobs by simply enforcing laws and getting rid of people who should not be here to begin with.

I’ve got a better idea. Shut down the Depts of Education, Energy, the EPA, the BATF, the IRS, OSHA, and a few others. Fire all the employees. Cut the staffing at the Depts of Interior, Justice and State 20%. Kick the UN out of the US and leave the UN. Cut foreign aid 25% [to start].Cut ALL Federal funding for illegal immigrants. That should do ‘er.

Everything has to be on the table when it comes to cutting the budget.

The little secret is you are paid very well in the military.

Dunno, the people bitching about pay, but anyone who has served recently has been paid. I can go on this one for a while.

We are broke, we need to start looking out for Americas interest. Enough babysitting the world, anyone who thinks we can continuing spending overseas on the military is living in a fantasy or has no concept of the spending problem.

“We had been told, on leaving our native soil, that we were going to defend the sacred rights conferred on us by so many of our citizens settled overseas, so many years of our presence, so many benefits brought by us to populations in need of our assistance and our civilization.

“We were able to verify that all this was true, and because it was true, we did not hesitate to shed our quota of blood, to sacrifice our youth and our hopes. We regretted nothing, but whereas we over here are inspired by this frame of mind, I am told that in Rome factions and conspiracies are rife, that treachery flourishes, and that many people in their uncertainty and confusion lend a ready ear to the dire temptations of relinquishment and even to vilify our actions.

“I cannot believe that all this is true, and yet recent wars have shown how pernicious such a state of mind could be and to where it could lead.

“Make haste to reassure us, I beg you, and tell us that our fellow citizens understand us, support us, and protect us as we ourselves are protecting the glory of the Empire.

“If it should be otherwise, if we should have to leave our bleached bones on these desert sands in vain, then beware the fury of the Legions.”

Centurion Marcus Flavinius, Second Cohort, Augusta Legion to his cousin Tertullus in Rome. No date given.

Yes, that really makes frigging since Gates you dumb-ass, what about the money you have helped piss away in an illegal war against Libya.

Spoke to friend who manages 501.3c she spoke to staffers with Congressman involved in Pentagon budget. Mullens and Obama got blasted for trying to suggesting local communities, states and 501.3c should take over care of wounded warriors and veterans. Now they are using M. Obama and Mrs. Biden under the guise of care for military families pushing the same thing. Using Michelle My belles high popularity to blunt backlash. Gates is pushing this but Obama has broader goals. First push vets off TRICARE and into VA. This will reduce DOD costs than force vets into. Obamacare. Plans to use CPI to increase health care premiums yearly for vets while tying increases in retirement pay to COLA which uses bogus WH inflation numbers. Congress is receptive as are most vets to Increase in premiums but against CPI. We cost the DOD allot but it was promised if we remained 20 or in my case 30 years. While most people thank us for our service, it is time to show that appreciation. Tell Congress CPI is a no go. Keep the promise to vets and any increase in cost to retired vets must have a corresponding cut to Union pension funds. Remember retired vets include medically retired from injuries during the war. Many of those vets are young and did not have time in service and rank to see substantial retirements.
