As a rule, you shouldn't start your story with "as a soldier" if you're not a soldier. I don't care about your theming.

Also, I don't think the average soldier is bemoaning the loss of 350,000 military contractor jobs. I think they're more concerned about their actual brothers in arms.

It was basically a laundry list of every dumbass right-wing myth and scare tactic about Obama; at least, it was until the ringing in my ears made me lose consciousness for a few minutes.

Thank You for Re-Electing Obama
By Sgt. Patton Q. Eisenhower USMC


As a soldier, I want to thank you for ensuring that I will have less than adequate protection in a field of military action now that the president has reduced military expenditures. In fact, "Aerospace Industries Association, a trade group, released a study that projected the sector would lose in the neighborhood of 350,000 direct and supplier jobs under [Obama's] automatic cuts." That will certainly help the already burgeoning unemployment rate.
 
2012-10-25 10:21:23 AM
reduced military expenditures Which is what the military wants.

power to cut Medicare spending without congressional approval. That was Ryan's plan.


my religious conscience since my religious charity, hospital, and schools will be forced to pay for contraceptives including abortion-inducing drugs
You keep saying "my" as if it applies to "them" Muslim employers don't force their staff to wear scarves. Non-Jews to wear Yarmulke.


As a woman, I want to thank you for your specious claim to care for us, knowing all the while that you support people who support sharia law, that most misogynistic law that countenances honor killing, and second-class citizenship for women.
Don't forget the part where Obama will make women who are raped keep their blessing from God!

As a student, I want to thank you for Obama's re-election because he is a role model of elegance and eloquence. He goes on the Pimp with the Limp show and hosts Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z, whose lyrics would make my mama cringe. If I used them, I would have my mouth washed out with soap. But hey, man, if the prez can give his blessin', it must be good, right? Yes, this is the most pressing issue with students today, bad language. Not our failing math and science scores. ...

I can't do anymore, that site smells like old scary afraid white men.

That just... it's so disgustingly disingenuous on every level. Speaking for soldiers, believing they want us to spend more on military across the board and not specific things like their pay, health benefits, the arms and equipment they actually use regularly. We have a massive military, and that has nothing to do with how our soldiers are actually treated. It's Romney's conflating of soldiers and the military complex as aw hole and all the people who profit from it.

IIRC, there was some complaining about the fact that there was money available for supersonic fighter jets and nuclear submarines and such but not for mine protected vehicles or even armor kits for Humvees.

Screwing soldiers and using that to justify more money for defense contractors is an old tactic but it works.

Eh, plenty of soldiers have really strong political views. There's no reason a soldier would be any less crazy about these kinds of political positions than anyone else.

We had a new one get hired here, and he's the kind of hardcore Right Wing military guy that always has a smirk on his face when talking politics as if he's patronizing everyone else he is speaking to, because they couldn't fathom his insight. Then the 3 other veterans look at him and just shake their head and begin the laborious process of showing him the error of his thinking.

He's the type that wants to invade Iran.

Oh, I have no doubt of the political views. But that statement seemed more about personal views outside of politics. Anyone can have political views on anything, but I doubt that, when dealing with things that directly affect them, soldiers generally put the health of the military contractor industry up there on the same level with their pay and benefits, and the equipment they actually use. That was what the statement meant.

So what you're saying is that government spending does create jobs.

I've come to realize I hate dealing with hypothetical questions in the technology world. Having people call to bounce hypothetical questions off me all day just gets tiring. It's one thing to ask for advice, it's an entirely other to ask pointed questions, get an answer, then change the parameters and dynamics of the questions and ask it all over again.

"What if... I am using a webcam... in a hotel conference room... in a crowd... sharing the bandwidth of the hotels wifi... with a dalmation and pekingese... in a river simulation tub... at night... when aliens are attacking... during nuclear winter... on December 22nd, 2012 after all the righteous people have been Raptured... and I'm out of Mountain Dew... would the conference still work?"

Really that's literally true. If you live in a rural area the military is often the best job available and many rural communities are economically dependent on military bases or military contractors.

A lot of the "patriotism" of the "heartland" is more self interest than patriotism. That's why people fight to keep military bases that the military doesn't use or want open and they support congressmen who buy military equipment that the DoD doesn't want.

In the name of patriotism of course.

When he signed it into law. 

What would be amazing, but not surprising, was if he vetoed it, they overrode his veto, and they STILL blamed him for it.

When it became unpopular. Before then, Boehner said he got 98% of what he wanted.
