I just read an interesting news story from the Chicago Tribune where the Pentagon will cut 46,000 jobs of contract workers and temporary workers and maintenance on ships and aircraft due to budget cuts in government spending starting march 1 said Ashton Carter Defense Secretary said Friday.
The Pentagon is absorbing 487 Billion in cuts to projected defense spending over 10 years and across the board spending by January 1 2013 unless congress acts.In this writer’s opinion, why cut defense down to nothing? Can we afford to go back to pre World War I condition when we has little of an Army to defend ourselves? History can and doses repeat itself. Here is my opinion on this Or two cents on this events.
What we have to do is cut in other area such as welfare for example. Close it down and reopen so if a person is in need good. It’s there for you as a hand up not a hand out. If you can work, than you work. That is the first step in this problem in budget spending. No reason why a person can work but chooses to be on the dime for years and years and their family member for year and years. Bottom line, we can’t let our defense down as the first cut. Go with across the board cuts starting with the welfare and illegals in our country. Why are our elected officials afraid to do or say anything on this? the Vote. that is what Obama and his friends want. The illegal vote. Make then citizens and turn them into liberals.
That is NO to any free ride for illegals in our country. Is it fair for somebody who is here and get the green card and finally take the test to be a citizen to now be pushed into the back of the line by an illegal? No to any anti gun laws. Follow the laws on the books . What is first? The AK 15. Next shot guns. Then the pistols. What is next? the rights to free speech and press? Those who even blog? This is what my friends we have to stop and fear. In a nut shell, losing the constitution!
