PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Military veterans are upset after the annual Camp Lejeune fireworks show for military members and their families was cut.
What makes it even worse: A Pittsburgh area company offered to do the show for free, but the government said, thanks, but no thanks.
The military says the show meant for more than 47-thousand Marines and Sailors was cancelled due to federal cutbacks.

This is how.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
We need to cut the WH travel budget and clip Obama’s wings. No money for our military,, but billions for his travel and foreign give aways.
It sounds as though the Kenyan and his ‘RAT comrades aren’t into Americana. Bass turds. Come on 2016. This maggot needs to go.
A liberal slap in the face to our brave men and women serving our country.
Veterans and military families say they dont care, they consider it a slap in the face.
They are right.
Gotta make that sequester hurt non-LGBTQWXYZ Americans.
Zero hates American with an evil, white-hot passion. And he hates Independence Day most of all, because he wants a Supreme Marxist Government to rule despotically over the American people, and for every day to be *Dependence* Day.
[Read the Declaration of Independence this morning. The list of crimes and insults against the colonies makes me believe that Bathhouse Barry is channeling King George III.]
What makes you think he'll leave in 2016?
Yup. His agenda is far too ambitious to complete in 3 years, not without declaring martial law, and Hilldebeast isn't about to take a back seat to his legacy. He ain't going anywhere.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Wonder if all these military folk and their families are paying close attention to what just transpired in Egypt? What if the Dems are pushing the military a bit too far? (A man can still dream ... )
And Obama and wife are doing commercials claiming to support veterans!
Their lavish living will continue until the Left start making it an issue.
As per Dear Reader’s orders, gotta make the sequester as painful as promised.
Came for the story, stayed for the fantastic comments on the linked page.
Has nothing to do with budgets or not having the money.
It has everything to do with punishing EVERYONE for ANYONE pushing the idea of spending cuts.
That is why when someone forces a spending cut, the liberal DemocRATS always say, “OK. The local libraries close down. No more police. No more fire department. We’ll have to close the parks, too.”
The troops are not to be distracted...except for Armed Forces Gay Pride Day at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW.
“The military says the show meant for more than 47-thousand Marines and Sailors was cancelled due to federal cutbacks.”
Let’s be crystal clear about this. The show was canceled solely because Obama is a petulant and petty man, lashing out at what he hopes will hurt Americans, because he was denied a pittance by congress.
Yep. Oh, but there's plenty of money for lavish vacations to Africa, and expensive clothes for the first lady.
This shows what their priorities are.
One in five Americans (which is one in seven households) getting their precious little cards "reloaded" each month, while the military has been used as an ATM machine for the Welfare State.
Shame on this nation.
“It sounds as though the Kenyan and his RAT comrades arent into Americana. Bass turds. Come on 2016. This maggot needs to go.”
My friend, tell me one thing that you have seen thatmakes you think he intends on “leaving” in 2016...there will be marshall law one way or another, or something that “will keep him going on and on and on!
He hates the American way of life.
Didn’t you get the email? 2016 has been cancelled.
I really hate to seem like a grammar bug and hope you don’t take offense, but this one is annoying because it crops up so much. The word is “martial” (as in military, from Mars ... Roman god of war) law. Marshall is a military or law enforcement rank or a verb meaning to gather forces.
It was cancelled because the communist thug in our White House despises the military and wants them to suffer any time he can pretend someone else is at fault.
Gee whiz, who do you think you are, Martial Dillon? ;)
Well I ain’t Miss Kitty.
It's about disconnecting "Americans" from their heritage.
It was cut so the Illegal could show the military the rigid digit salute he so loves for those he really hates, like America, Americans, and the Constitution.
They are also closing the swimming pools used by military families. Obama is despicable. And where are the MSM on this? Silent.

“My friend, tell me one thing that you have seen that makes you think he intends on leaving in 2016...there will be MARTIAL LAW one way or another, or something that will keep him going”...on and on and on”
FIXED THE MARTIAL LAW ITEM...SEPERATED THE WORDS THAT MAKES and added the missing “...makes alot of difference....thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Petty, small, anti-patriotic in light of his multi-million dollar African Trip.
But that's how this Chicago Gang roll.
