Re: Possible
So, you think a deployed soldiers wife and children should not receive a paycheck? I guess most people don't realize that for some (most, maybe) being a soldier is a job, with the expectation of being paid to do it. These people risk their lives and put their lives on hold and have ZERO to do with the situation you clamor about or against. I am a veteran so I speak first hand about it being a job.

Re: Possible
Well, it seems we aren't talking about the same thing then, eh? malvern made a comment that insinuated (and this has been tossed about) that military personnel would not receive paychecks. You then responded, in kind, saying to stop payments to the military. This response, being in response his comment, made it obvious that you agreed to stop paying members of the military. Perhaps you care to clarify?

No, I did not say that I "think a deployed soldiers wife and children should not receive a paycheck",

But that is EXACTLY what would happen if members of the military stopped receiving paychecks.

I said that not paying the Military is likely a good idea.

True. But cutting the pay of a lowly, newly enlisted, father of 3 and newly married E2 is NOT the way to go about it. But if you think the pay cuts will come from the top down, you are sadly mistaken.... There IS, however, a LOT of wasteful spending.

Re: Possible
The answer to all of those is no, in my opinion. We all know that none of those programs are where the problem lies, though. None of those programs are where there is the most waste. Those programs help people, not pad pockets.

Re: Dark Times Ahead
Got some sauce for those whack ass numbers?

Figured you didn't.... Just like you NEVER have any solid validation when it comes to anything politics related.

Re: Dark Times Ahead
So now you want to raise taxes on working families who are already struggling, but NOT raise taxes on the super rich? What the FUCK is your problem?

{abe}

With about 50% of the population living off the government (i.e., they and the government are living off the 50% who have incomes),

I'm glad you cherry picked that article. Hell, you didn't even cherry pick it: you misconstrued it. You DO realize that those ALLEGED 50% aren't considered "living off the government" AND they DO have an income, right?

Edited by hooah212002, : No reason given.

Re: Campaign to Misinform
Indeed. The right got damn near everything they wanted. And they gloat about it.
