Soldier’s Pay – A Mad Marine’s Perspective

So . . . Congress is going to ‘delay’ soldier’s pay until they pass a new budget.  ARE THESE FOLKS CRAZY???  You are talking about tickin’ off all the guys with the really cool guns!

That’s how military coups get started ya know – and while wonderful for defense, you don’t want the military running the show.  Great guys, ya know – but they like everything laid out in orderly rows, everything shining, and everyone tows the line – no back talk to your superior, unless you wanna face a little bit o’ time in the brig feeding the rats your bread and water in hopes of getting some meat. (Won’t work: rats not allowed.)

Here’s a question – vote by raising your hand: How many of YOU think our government OFFICIALS will be taking a ‘suspension in pay’?  Hands?  Any?  Thought so.

And even if our illustrious leaders DO take a “suspension in pay” – most of those fat cats can afford to sit on their doofuses for a few months (after all, that’s how this mess got started) – while our military folks – AND THEIR DEPENDENTS – go hungry, end up homeless due to rent or mortgages overdue, or otherwise suffer even MORE than they already have?

Tell me – is that screaming FAIR?  And lets see . . . these are the guys with the guns, the missiles, the atomic BOMBS for Christ’s sake — and Congress and the White House are going to piss them off?

We need to get rid of these greedy-butt fat cats, folks.  I learned as a Marine: you take care of your MEN first, then you take care of yourself.  Everyone.  I stood aside so my men could eat.  I made sure they got in line first – and if one came in – he went before ME.  Always, every time.  And it makes me SO ANGRY that these greedy politicians, one of whom’s salary could keep 4 enlisted families going for a year – are doing this.

Folks, we need to stand up, get up, and MARCH ON WASHINGTON – kick some butts OUT and put some poor folks up there – folks who KNOW right from wrong.

This old Marine is mad as hell.

And trust me: you don’t want the Marines mad at you. 😉
