    excerpt....

    Veterans’ groups say the cut could amount to an average cash loss of $80,000 or more for each affected retiree --
    and a loss of confidence in the U.S. government’s word.

    The cut, meant to save an estimated $6 billion over the next decade, does not take effect until 2015, but the battle
    over the provision has already started.

    “The U.S. government has broken their promise and for someone who has committed themselves -- commitments that
    can be extremely grueling on a family -- and are pulling 15, 20 years or more, this is a fundamental loss of trust and has
    unquestionably hurt morale for active members,” said retired Vice Admiral Norbert Ryan, president and CEO of the Military
    Officers Association of America (MOAA), a non-profit focused on military advocacy.

    Politicians no longer represent us and they haven't for years. They lie and spout b.s. to get elected and then just line their pockets while they betray the people. To sell out veterans is about the lowest you can get.

    The "Tree of Liberty" etc...

    They play a very dangerous game with this one. Not unlike Russians roulette.

    This form of Russian Roulette is done in this manner:


    Select your favorite self-loading pistol.


    Insert one cartridge into magazine. Jack the slide back, Smartly.


    Carefully check that all Safety Devices are in the "Off" or "Fire" position.


    With no no hesitation, place barrel in the appropriate Russian Roulette Position.


    Pull Trigger.....


    "Next...."?????


    Anger keeps me from being more graphic.

    Why does the Oath of Service mean so much, to those who ~served~ And the similar Oath Poly Tic ians state, mean so little?????

    The politicians serve the corporations that own them.

    Democrats have always despised the military and those who serve in it. Their current president has a particular distain for the services and that is a well known fact. He has been canning generals and any other senior officers who fail to join the cult that worships him as a god.

    Screwing over retirees and mocking the deaths of military members are two of the favorite past times of the socialists.

    The brand of the Marxist.
    It began and has ramped up in the US since about 1968 in the US while we were sent to fight communists in VN, they slithered into the US and engulfed the education system and into every agency of government in a very organized and deceptive manner.
    Each year it has grown progressively more embedded.
    Most people do not see how their thought processes have been cultivated into Marxist beliefs .
    The roots are like a cancer on our nation and unless we can clear their fogged vision we will lose the country.
