Veterans know that all Democratic administrations have had a "war" on them since the 1970s. The Republicans are the only friends the military - and veterans - have had in my lifetime.
Democrats "loathe" the military and do everything possible to destroy its culture. Social experiments have no place in warfighting. The Dems have never learned this lesson and that is why they will NEVER get my - nor many other military and veteran's - support.
PN, I suggest you stick to a topic that you have some personal experience in. Chief just laid out the facts to you and just because SNAP has been reduced for all doesn't change the real history of the war against veterans. HMJC, Chief and I have over 65 years of personal experience in regards to this topic. Will you believe or S.I.N.?
Well Sebe, of course that is incorrect. And though you are our MVB, I am not sure when you were appointed spokesman for the Veterans and the military. Is that a secret handshake sort of thing? Cuz I missed it.
Let's just PRETEND for now tho that you are right. You being a numbers man, just how much of a percentage is the 'military vote' in a national election? Enough to sway an election?
And do you honestly think Conservatives can sell the idea to the voting public that the POTUS is a wolf in sheeps clothing ready to devour our national defense and leave America vulnerable to the 'evil doers?' That is called paranoia.
It is going to take a very loud bang to wake you fellas up. And it is coming and you will not only hear it, but see it. The forthcoming GOP implosion will not rival the Big Bang...but it will come close.
I have now afforded you an opportunity to wake TOT from his nap before the explosion does it. He will take the disruption better, coming from you, than he will from the real thing.
PN can take care of herself. She is an intelligent erudite wordsmith of which her 'personal experience' runs deep.
I also have experience in this area. I've worked with disabled veterans for 15years I spent my entire life living on military installations and I'm married to a disabled veteran. I've worked with Jack Kingston and I was guest commentator for WSAV on veteran issues. The truth is the Obama Administration has done more for veterans than the majority of our previous administrations. I will post his accomplishments in a few.
Jimmy: As a 26-year veteran I know how veterans think and I stay in touch with how they feel. I am speaking FACT. When a Democrat is President, he doesn't have your back when you are in the military, you have to WATCH YOUR BACK. My personal experience was with Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. They did more damage to the U.S. military and our preparedness, morale and culture than if we had put someone from the Supreme Soviet in charge. I am NOT BS'ing. Funky knows because he's been there. So have I.
PN: Working with disabled veterans or being married to one isn't the same as wearing the suit and walking the walk. My wife is married to a veteran also, and she has no idea what the real deal is. You have to wear the suit and put up with the crap - day in and day out - over decades before you are qualified to offer a valid opinion on the state of the military. You have to watch how your men, your materiel and your equipment are managed to know whether your Commander-in-Chief has your back or if you need to watch your back.
When Carter and Clinton were president, the armed services were consistently screwed in these areas. President Obama will be judged after eight years on what he has done for the military and what he has done TO the military. The people I hear from - and from what I see in the news - he's just another Democrat who cares more about his legacy than about the soldiers. And the Democrat's penchant for using the military as a petri dish for social experimentation IS NOT appreciated by the rank and file military. It is a mission DISTRACTER - not a mission facilitator.
I understand your loyalty to President Obama, but wanting or wishing does not make it so. We are finding this out with ObamaCare.
