“You ask for facts, and when I give you 8 links that refute what you said, you wave your hand and declare your own wisdom.”
Quotes from hacks do not make facts.
You whine and complain and mislead and prevaricate just like the JCS and the secretary of defense.
They are LYING. How did we get to the point where our defense department is led by liars?
Complete utter unethical bureaucratic incompetent idiocy.
And YOU claim them as Facts?
Again, we need competent military leaders to step up and not lie to the American people like you are doing on this thread.
$46B “guts” the military. Please. These latter-day Idi Amins need to hang it up and let real men step up and lead the defense of this nation.
Nope. Not signing onto this.
You have to cut. You have to cut big. Frankly, in the Continuing Resolution upcoming for March 27, a conservative must want to see even MORE cuts, added to, not replacing, the Sequester, and to get them passed DoD will have to eat some of those as well.
Government must get smaller. The number one threat to the USA is not military; it is fiscal. These cuts must happen and DoD will not be immune. Most particularly civil service pensions must not be immune — including Congressional pensions.
More boomers voted for him than younguns.
“We need entitlement reform, not another $600 Billion in new cuts to a DoD that already absorbed $450 Billion in cuts. The Tea Party is a great movement. I agree with it. But the “Well, burn it all down then” approach is stupid. They are going to marginalize themselves and the movement if they stick with that.”
Cuts are inevitable at this point. The sooner the spending cuts come, the better.
Why do you think Obama’s trying to do his damndest to avoid sequestration?
Because he’s a RINO.
