BREAKING 7:41PM ET: Fox News Television reports that Barack Obama has issued a demand that the Pentagon reduce its budget by more than 10%. The dollar figure is $55 billion.I know I shouldn't be surprised. This is what the
President Obama wants to spend a trillion dollars on welfare, condoms, international STD prevention, 600,000 new government jobs and handouts for illegal immigrants... but negative funding for the very mission his Presidential Oath required.
So now we have a far Left Marxist radical in office, so what the heck do you think will happen? He's going to cut the military. He'll spend billions upon billions of dollars on social welfare and government programs, but he's going to cut the military.
I hope to God that there's a military left after his turn in office.
HEY, HERE'S AN IDEA! Let's start by removing all military support from the Office of the President. AIR FORCE ONE? How much does that cost? Get rid of it. MARINE ONE? How much does that cost? Get rid of it. The salaries and pay for all those military folks that guard the White House? How much do they cost? Get rid of them.
This oxygen thief hates the military. Maybe it's time to show him that the feeling is mutual.
HERE'S ANOTHER THOUGHT: Let's start by shutting down every single base in states controlled by liberal morons. Ft. Dix, NEW JERSEY? Gone. Ft. Drum, NEW YORK? Gone. Ft. Irwin, CALIFORNIA? Gone. Let the military put it's bases where they're appreciated, instead of shitty liberal hellholes. Maybe THAT will save some money.
UPDATE: Cold Fury reminded me of something Kommisar Obama said a while ago:
So I guess that statement was just pure political posturing bullshit. Hey, who woulda thunk it, coming from a
“You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq.
And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough Humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.”
You know, just like the Carter years. And the Clinton years. Hey, am I detecting a pattern here?
