I have never seen anything like the apathy and collective denial among Republicans, Conservatives, and Freepers on such an important issue as this.

Ever.

It is almost like I am living in a parallel universe.

Rush, Hannity, our Republican members of Congress - they have all gone off the deep end. Hundreds of thousands of loyal military members axed. Hundreds of thousands of DoD employees furloughed. A huge drop in the economy because of a 22% drop in military spending last quarter, and the bloodletting is just beginning.

And the reaction of most is.........who cares?

I guess I'll just join the Zombies, deny reality, and watch the horror unfold.

"Another option for Republicans is to call for suspending the sequester in whole or in part. That runs counter to the mantra of many House conservatives that the "only thing worse than defense cuts is no cuts at all." But is that really true? It would be one thing to cut a trillion dollars from the military as part of a plan to avert a debt crisis, as Senator Tom Coburn proposed. But weakening the military without solving the debt problem? Without even making a serious dent in it? What good is that? What will happen to an already-weakened military if and when a debt crisis actually hits?"

If Obama moves against conservative gun owners, which I suspect will happen soon, then I would prefer he do it with a weakened military.

An anti-draft military, treating homosexual buddies and lesbians as married couples with expensive benefits, hiring single moms and families, and with a goal of 50% females, and who are putting females into the combat units, is wasting money, throwing it away, devoting it to waste and social engineering, and self benefit, they aren’t interested in combat readiness.

That makes it very hard for conservatives to find a way to fight what the military is doing to us.

The situation appears hopeless, and money is not going to change it.

The country is catching on to your and Obama’s false spin on sequestration. Even the media is catching on.

My son is swearing in with the Marines next Friday. Why would they be swearing him in if they are cutting their force by such an amount?
