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.

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.

Veteran’s and military families say they don’t care, they consider it a slap in the face.

$100M vacation to Africa for The Kenyan Usurper and his “beard” family...nothing for the Marines and their families at Camp Lejeune.

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.

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 ... )

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 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.

Amerika under Obama.

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.

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.

It's not about the money.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obama, Michelle & Valerie have a mean, nasty streak in them.

Petty, small, anti-patriotic in light of his multi-million dollar African Trip.

But that's how this Chicago Gang roll.
