Why Is This A Surprise?

Debt Slavery

So let me see if I get this right.

Obama and the rest of Congress refuse to deal with theft by government, at gunpoint, which they euphemistically label as “entitlements.”

The Defense Secretary calls for all he can in fact do — fit the military into the remaining size of the budget.

He gets excoriated for it.

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, warned that the cuts would hurt military readiness. And he said the country is only in this position because the Obama administration and Congress will not seriously take on cuts to entitlements.

“It’s all being sacrificed … on the altar of entitlements. This president cannot take on mandatory spending, so all we’ve done in the Congress — and this president — is basically cut discretionary spending,” he told Fox News.

Really Michael?

It’s all the Obama Administration’s fault?

Who passed a suspension of the debt ceiling — twice sequentially, and prior to that lifted it under fraudulent pretense several times more, going back to 2011?

That would be the Republicans who hold the majority in The House.

Do we really need 450,000 members of the active force in the Army?  I don’t know.  Maybe, and maybe not.  But what I do know is that we have to stop ripping off those who are too young to vote, thinking that they’re somehow responsible for the borrowing that we run up.

They’re not, and if we don’t cut that crap out they will eventually decide, as is happening in Ukraine, that they’ve had enough of people like you Mr. McCaul.  Let’s do exactly that via peaceful means, and today would be a good day to start.
