Soros Think Tank Recommends Cuts To Military Benefits

George Soros’ think tank is recommending cuts being applied to Military Benefits.  This is a bad idea and it’s based on incredibly flawed thought processes.  They want to reduce the size of our active duty military personnel because they falsely believe that if the US should ever come under attack that our allies will come help.  That’s bullshit thinking right out of the gate.  France wouldn’t even help us get Germany out of France during WW II.  Nobody on the United Nations would help us if we came under attack and that’s the cold reality these communists, socialists, nazi’s, and booger eating morons at the Center For American Progress put too much faith in the world considering history tells us that these countries don’t think twice about calling us in to help them with their problems.  This is not a two way street and these idiots need to wake up and smell the coffee.

Secondly, they want to kill military retiree benefits.  Essentially their idea is to screw everyone who has defended this country for over 20 years and go back on what we each were promised.  According to the commies at the Center For American Progress, we aren’t owed anything in return for our service and disabilities we’ve incurred from defending the country.  They also want to make retirees wait until they reach 60 to start receiving their retired pay.  They believe it’s ok to go back on their word and promises to Retirees.  They also intend on capping retired pay and  restricting health benefits that we were promised that the government has already screwed many of us out of already.

Additionally they want us to close some more bases which I really don’t have a feeling about one way or another.  However, the savings obtained through all of this will go to other social programs and not towards the debt and they really are ignoring the people who getting the most money out of retirements….congress.  If you communist bastards are going after military benefits then you should go after congressional benefits.  After all, that’s who screwed up our economy with their reckless spending but the Center for American Progress don’t go after the people who deserve to have their benefits slashed because they are communists and under every communist regime you have 2 classes….the ruling class and the working class.  They would NEVER EVER think of cutting congressional retirement benefits.


An Argument For Fairness

The more I think about this the more it pisses me off.  Everytime the government wrecklessly spends money and gets the country in a bind, who’s always told they have to take on the chin for the country.  Hint:  It’s not the people who caused the problem, it’s old people and military veterans.  Congressman and Congresswomen never are expected to sacrifice a damn thing.  In fact, when military veterans are asked to sacrifice, congress gets a pay raise and gets more benefits.  It hardly seems fair.  A military retiree probably puts more hours working than congress but gets paid less money than congress upon retirement.  A congressman makes $60,000 a year in retirement where a E-6 who was in for 20 years only sees $15,000 a year.  Congress doesn’t put near as many hours in as a military retiree did in their 20 years.

I think to be fair in the sacrifices, Congress should cut their retirement/benefits for a change because after all they created the problem.  I don’t think I’m the only person who holds this opinion.  Congress feels their contributions are a lot more than a military retiree.  Why else would they be attempting to screw retirees by taking away their tricare insurance away and forcing them onto a plan that the dumbasses in Congress feels is beneath them to be on.  Why else would they vote to keep their health insurance and not the military retirees insurance?

I have no doubt these arrogants bastards feel they earned their retirement while a military retiree didn’t because THEY ran the country (Into the ground).  Gas is almost working it’s way to 5 bucks a gallon.  Honestly, it appears to me they did a real crappy job running the country if gas is that high.
