you're not very good at this.

Enlisted pay is a separate discussion.

We monetarily underpay for enlisted military service because of the perceived compensation of serving your country.

Do you go into threads and copy cat what someone said because you don't know wtf you are talking about?

CNN called it a decrease a CUT. Read my post before this before trying to sound like you know wtf you are talking about in trying to get a good gotcha in.

And again, you are a hack. Why have you not commented in my Ed Schultz thread since you are so well informed?

gotcha?

Im still trying to figure out the math you went through to discover that a 1 percent pay raise is a pay cut.

Perhaps you can edumacate me with this new math you are using.

Can we expect ANY entitlement spending cuts?

No?


shrug. Wouldn't know. I havent had a pay "raise" in a number of years thanks to the fun economy. But no one has certainly told me that since they weren't giving me a raise they were cutting my salary.

ah no.

Back when I was in the military no one was paying us a "living wage". We were well compensated in other ways (medical, the BX, etc etc) but a living wage...ha.

You join the service to serve. Not to get rich.

Pretty sure Congresspersons don't take the job with the expectation that they will be shot at on a regular basis. Also sure no GI's are making anywhere near $174K per year in salary.

Class act, buddy !

Why would you announce to your enemies that "hey we're a little light in the wallet this week so that carrier group presence just got cut in half?"
Political statements have no business being made when lives are at stake. No excuse at all.

There is nothing more important than the military mission and our personnel. The funding of the military is accounted for in the Constitution, so cut something else that's not. I don't know say free birth control, midnight basketball, or some other lib dujour.

not to quibble but my father was a career air force office.

I'd hardly describe him as wealthy when he left the military.

A lot of former officers making lots of money working for defense contractor outfits these days.

Perhaps, that's what he's getting at.

Our budget troubles are a secret? And what lives are you talking about exactly?

Making announcements regarding military strength or lack of is what I am talking about. Announcing to your adversaries that strength is down. Very basic really.

Who is a real military threat to us? Other than the scab fighters we encounter while occupying other people's countries?

My concern is for the safety of the personnel abroad and the statements that were made. You don't do that. Period.
To discuss your question regarding the enemy would again be allowing politics into a situation where it should not enter. The Carter Doctrine long ago addressed the issue of the region's strategic interest to the US and every president since that time has upheld this policy.
Now to the scab fighters that you talk about. Suit up yourself to find out their fighting abilities. I did and my view of them is inverse to yours.

Disagreements aside, we're both blessed to be able to speak our views without fear of reprisal in an open forum and that's a pretty good thing. Take care

What danger do you see arising from the announcement though?

I'm a veteran. You're welcome for my service.
