I understand your point, but you have to understand the diabolical way Sequestration is unfolding and being implemented.

To start with, it is Obama's to own because his OMB Director Jack Lew proposed it. BUT, the Republicans overwhelmingly supported for it and voted for it. Secondly, the formula punishes the military with 50% of all cuts, but EXEMPTS entitlements, which are exploding and are the real causes of out debt and deficit. Thirdly, military pay and most contracts are off limits [and this will include the homosexual human toilets who call themselves "spouses" now]. That means that Operations and Maintenance money takes the brunt of the cuts......the life blood of the military. Sequestration inordinately punishes the loyal military patriots, harms the defense industry, devastates DoD civilians via furloughs, but rewards the takers: Food Stamps, EITC, TANF, Section 8, ObamaCare, you name it......EXEMPT from Sequestration.

GOD please watch over our innocent Honorable troops serving our nation who are now caught under the authority of these Heathen Heretics in their wicked acts of abominations toward Your Word. May the troops not suffer for the evilness of hearts of the leadership overseeing them.

I pray for a civil war. I’d rather die fighting than live a slave in a communist, fag-friendly soddom and gomorrha.

If it is any consolation the welfare parasites here in NJ have basically given up police protection in exchange for their food stamps. Any police left are dedicated to protecting the businesses that comprise their miniscule tax base. In the meantime the parasites keep killing each other...forward!

A sick, corrupt, degenerate government. That’s what we now have. True evil has overtaken it. All my years, I proudly would have taken a stand, and given my life for my country. Now I wouldn’t lift a finger for it. America has become a sick, perverted cesspool.

The Pentagon is overseen by civilian leadership such as Secretary of Defense & Secretary of {whatever branch of service. They are the ones who make the policies. Congress has complete authority to overide them though. Why punish the troops for wrongs Obama's people has done?

This is gay sharya. Benefits is bull crap. ANyone divorcing will be accused of heterosexual apostasy and will be severely punished by the statist militants at the PEntagon.

This is absolute disgust and disgrace and dishonor in our military, to make a soldier a personal slave of the commander.

Several years ago, before I retired, we discussed this at a “Top Three Enlisted” meeting. The Chief commented that parents of young children might one day have a homosexual living next door in base housing.

As far as I can tell, this isn’t and has never been, about homosexual relationships, or homosexuals’ right to associate with whomever they wish in whatever fashion they want.

It’s all about the entitlements. They want to take advantage of laws that are meant to protect family inheritances, and use them to bypass estate taxes and so forth when they will their estate to their friends.

With changing the laws to make marriage a legal contract between any two people (or any group of people) instead of a legal mechanism to protect a biological function (the human pair-bonding that exists, biologically, to ensure that children are adequately cared for), the Supreme Court has opened a new avenue for all kinds of abuse. What’s to prevent room mates from “marrying” each other so as to get tax benefits, and then “divorcing” when they run into Mr. or Miss Right? Or, heck, they don’t even have to be room mates. People can just enter into business relationships without actually living together. We already have marriage fraud; the Supreme Court has just expanded its scope greatly. And they didn’t even make their decision on the merits of the case. Is there a mechanism for unseating Supreme Court judges who won’t do their constitutionally mandated job?

Rush said yesterday that he has faith that this will all sort itself out in the end. I wish I shared that faith. I’m afraid that the leftist rot that has invaded the country is going to kill the country.

There are persons still on their first enlistment who joined under Bush's term. Most enlistments are now eight year with a six year obligation to active duty unless the person enlisted into the Branch Reserves.

To be fair to the 99% majority of troops none of them likely wanted Fags in the service. Soldiers do not set those policies. Civilians in the Pentagon and Congress set military policy. Hagel and company along with the Queers should be the ones shown the door.

Hagel is a blot on NE “Republicans”. It seems every state Republican party has a huge embarrassment out there and more than one or two at that.

There is, but the American people won't support the mechanism, which is impeachment, conviction, and removal from office with forfeit of pay and benefits.

One thing the LIBERAL JSC didn’t think through when they put their jobs over the combat readiness of the Armed Forces, and sodomized the US military. In the heat of battle, three or four in a foxhole, one of being openly queer, and they are being overran by 20 members of the Taliban. The sergeant waits to the last minute to tell them to shoot, wanting to kill as many as possible. All the sudden he gives the order “NOW, shoot the GD c***suckers”. Guess which one got killed first?

I wasn’t sure if you were talking about God or obama.

I wouldn’t be surprised if obama says something about “being back home in Africa” or something like that. Just by going he’s sticking his finger in America’s eye. He’ll say something to get a finger in the other eye.

How ‘bout this scenario. A straight soldier is stationed in Texas. He has a straight friend who is very ill and has no insurance. The soldier and his friend fly to Vermont and get a marriage license. On Monday he walks into the personel office back in Texas and hands in his marriage license. The friend now gets government insurance and treatment at taxpayer’s expense.

This scenario could even be brothers marrying brothers or daughters marrying mothers or sons marrying fathers. Once again stupid politicians have refused to look one day down the road.

“For 80 billion dollars of a sequestration, we lay fallow Our Front Line Defenses?”

The liberal “War Against Islam” was never a “front line defense”; it was to force our NEW culture (pro-gay, anti-male, pro-abortion, socialist) on people who aren’t interested. In the meantime, my town is overrun with illegal aliens both parties have made it clear they won’t address (and they’re not just Hispanics - the 9/11 hijackers hung out here, overstaying their visas, while they plotted their attacks).

When our military secures our border, then they are worth funding. Otherwise, let Afghanistan and Iraq pay them. Do you have any idea what the costs of these maimed troops returning from our 0-2 disasters over there are going to cost us (for DECADES)? What’s YOUR deal?

Well, I don’t believe the US has ever declared a “War Against Islam”, much less a liberal war. You are entirely stupid. There is only a certain type of idiot, that would even express that point of view. Swing and a miss, dipshit. Go again, I dare ya.

You are correct that Islam is a chastisement for a nations arrogant (pride and arrogance before God) behavior promoting sodomite-ism. But that is more Europe’s chastisement. Ours comes in a different form via open borders

As wacked as Islam is, it understands (in a too extreme way) what the roles of men and women are. Islamic nations seem to outlaw abortion plus they condemn faggotry. We know homo sex relations are big in some Muslim nations but at least Islamic nations condemn it while we promote it and send female ambassadors to Muslim nations

“You are correct that Islam is a chastisement for a nations arrogant (pride and arrogance before God) behavior promoting sodomite-ism. But that is more Europe’s chastisement.”

Islam is a chastisement for not following natural law (breeding); we lost more people on 9/11 than all of Europe has combined in the same period (not even including the Fort Hood shootings, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Brooklyn Bridge & LAX shootings), etc.. As someone living between Jersey City and Paterson/Passaic NJ, I assure you Islam is a chastisement for us.

“As wacked as Islam is, it understands (in a too extreme way) what the roles of men and women are. Islamic nations seem to outlaw abortion plus they condemn faggotry.”

Absolutely; they follow “natural law” (and are winning).
