Reportedly, our one-party government comprising the congress and the administration, having taken giant steps toward the destruction of our economy with massive giveaway, vote-grabbing, spending programs, both foreign (Gaza) and domestic, sometimes euphemistically labeled "stimulus" efforts, now uses that spending as an excuse to emasculate our soldiers with immediate defense budget cuts.
Typically, these soldiers are devoted to the Constitution and highly skilled in what they do. Under-strength, they serve repetitive tours in combat zones in the everlasting World War against fundamental Islamists while their families soldier on without them. Equipment damaged and destroyed in combat needs repair and replacement. Advanced materiel, and ever more sophisticated weapons systems research and development are desperately needed as Iran perfects its nuclear capability. We do need to man, equip and train a separate conventional-war-fighting armed forces group to cope with the threats from Red China, Russia, Iran and North Korea.
To think of cutting instead of increasing defense funds at this time is not only callous and dis-respectful toward our soldiers but also Treasonous.
To paraphrase Jeremiah Wright, who cursed America, SHAME on you, Nancy Pelosi, SHAME on you Barney Frank, SHAME on you, Harry Reid, SHAME on you, Hillary Clinton and SHAME on you, Barack Obama.
Now is the time to beat plowshares into swords - to gear up a massive, forward-looking defense industry employing high-tech labor - vice make-work highway projects with unskilled workers leaning on shovels, like FDR's Work Projects Administation and Public Works Administration "workers" during the Depression
Duty-dodgers just give speeches. Soldiers serve.
