Default Unbeliveable !!!

So I was chatting with my step son today, who by the way is is in the Navy stationed overseas at one of the bases. Anyway were chatting about this and that, an I asked him if the shutdown is affecting them over there. His answer to me was " no extra pay at all" semi confused I asked if he was talking about overseas pay, and hazardous duty pay? He said that they are not receiving anything but their regular pay rate. Is it just me or is this administration trying to start some sort of problem tha really doesn't need to happen?

Ask yourself, why would you destroy the moral of your own military?

They are creating hardships to prove a point and spending more to accomplish it. The least they could do is nothing and they won't even do that.

What I don't understand is a bill was voted on in both the house and senate, and then signed by the prez to pay our military. I just can't wrap my mind around partially paying them.

The only thing I can come up with is to make it so our guys and girls do not choose to re up when your 4 years are done. Why would you want that?? Well that way you don't have to worry about them making it in long enough to get the max benefits. Ie pension and such

What's your thoughts in your question?

Ran into similar problems under Jimmy Carter got to the point that they were close to 20,000 Petty Officers (E4 and above) short in the fleet (that's 4 aircraft carriers worth of NCO's).

This results in higher unemployment and more people dependent on the government to get by.

Obama has little if any respect for the US military or the people serving.

Simply put, don't expect anything from this man and you won't be disappointed.
