Fwd: FW: Snow day

Subject: Fw: Snow day

This man is working during the storm, while the rest of our Federal employees are taking a "Snow Day" off in D.C.

They'll be back in session soon, to discuss his pay and benefits cuts.

Pay cuts? Not so much. The military gets a raise every year, which is good and should be normal for all professions.

Benefit cuts? Yup. Like cutting the food stamps that many military families depend on. Or the rumored plans to change their pensions from defined benefits to 401K style define contribution accounts.

Now let's think, which political party is constantly wanting to cut things like food stamps and pensions? Hmmmmmm....

Oh FFS, this is one of the Sentinels at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It's volunteer work and they do it for the duty and honor of the position, not for pay or scoring cheap political points.

On the other hand, the point is correct that the current Congress is useless as tits on a boar.

Whoops. Well, that blew up in your face, RW Dad.

Yes, the Republican-led House Budget was passed giving active duty military a whopping big 1% pay raise. Of course, it was also passed by the Democratic Majority Senate, so ... what's the take-away there, folks?

This is the budget where Nancy Pelosi (D-GimmeGimme) said to "Embrace the Suck" and pass it. Puh-leeze. Nancy also said "Impeachment is off the table."

These pigs all feed at the same trough. R? D? What's in a name? Not much these days.

Both sides of the aisle have not been kind to Vets, and there's a big push to reduce their benefits. Believe me, the Ds won't do all that much to protect them.

I'm cynical as many know and don't believe in the so-called "two parties." They are both corrupt.

This email? More twaddle, of course. So some rightwing think tank sends out something to rile up rightwingers into their usual victimizing upset... and then? What? Nothing.

As they wank about some soldier or marine or navy SEAL or whatever, what are they really *doing* to help the Military?

Here's a big fat old clue: bupkes.... other than a bunch of wanking.
