The U.S. Military Will Be Hurt

Barb you were right, Barney Frank is a douche bag and here is more proof of his assholery.  He wants to cut 25% of military spending.
NEW BEDFORD — After the November election, Democrats will push for a second economic stimulus package that includes money for the states’ stalled infrastructure projects, along with help paying for healthcare expenses, food stamps and extended unemployment benefits, U.S. Rep. Barney Frank said Thursday.
In a meeting with the editorial board of The Standard-Times, Rep. Frank, D-Mass., also called for a 25 percent cut in military spending, saying the Pentagon has to start choosing from its many weapons programs, and that upper-income taxpayers are going to see an increase in what they are asked to pay.
Read the rest here.
I knew people in the military during the Clinton administration and the troops moral went way down during this time. 
But an Obama administration would be worse than Clinton.  He would be like Jimmy Carter.  Seriously.  Jimmy Carter ran the U.S. Military into the ground.  My dad even said that it was night and day once Carter left office and Reagan took over.  He claimed that they FINALLY got working equipment and supplies to do their jobs almost immediately after Reagan took office.  Everything was broken down, couldn’t be fixed or replaced and they didn’t have the supplies they needed.  He said they couldn’t even get paint for crying out loud to keep up the bases under Carter.  That is seriously pathetic.  The military was also seriously underpaid under Carter and Reagan quickly changed that for our Armed Forces and gave them all raises, new weapons, new uniforms, etc.
I happily pay taxes for our military.  We need defense.  We need to supply the military with things to do their jobs effectively and pay them – they are still underpaid. 
Obama does understand nor support the military either.  If we have a democrat President like Jimmy Carter AND a democrat congress… that my friends is going to be a bad, bad, bad combination.  You will see people getting out of the military because they will be disgusted and that will be a shame too because we’ll lose the best people.  And according to this dumb ass who wants to be your Vice President, he says in six months Obama will be tested by some other country and start some shit.  So… you think our Armed Forces will be able to handle that on less?
