    Obama really needs to go. At this point I don't care how. Hand of God with a lightning bolt would be a nice touch. Impeachment would make me happy. Heart attack? Sure, I would laugh my ass off. I really really don't care how. Nothing is too low or too good for the removal of this Cancerous growth that is rapidly killing America!
    Now for the latest bad news. With all that is being asked of the militaty now days, and with Obama's continued constant disdain for the Military, guess what? Obama absolutely will not be satisfied until he gets his hands on what little money Military Active and Retired Members, their families and dependents have by grossly jacking their tricare medical insurance through the roof.

    What really bugs me about the whole fee hike deal is that John Mcain supports it....Must be nice to have free health care.

    Don't get to riled with me but aren't we all expected to pay our fair share? Since the passing of Obama care my health premiums and co-pays have gone up over 30%. Isn't it fair that the military pays more? Personally I feel that the military should be taken care of because of the service they have given to the country. BUT, when you have leaders that focus on "helping",what is right and what is wrong gets lost. Did we really think that Obama wasn't going to throw the military under the bus?

    And don't get me started on J. McCain.... that guy @^?!@&)%

    Most enlisted military retirees are drawing monitary benefits that are only slightly higher than the government computed national poverty level. At the time of many of our initial enlistments FREE HEALTHCARE FOR LIFE was a key selling point pushed by the recruiters in getting us to sell our souls to these assholes. Life in the military for 22 years was far from easy or comfortable. Many of those who bought into this, are no longer among the living. To get decent health care it is not free. The VA is far from decent healthcare! Tricare Prime is pretty good healthcare but we do have to pay for it. I take great offence to any increase other than COLA increases if applicable on an annual basis. I am not asking for a free ride, only what I am due for what I gave. I also have a service connected disability. BTW, the average welfare recipient nationwide draws aprox. $34,000 in benefits annually. That is far more than I receive as an E-7 with 22 years active service. So, just how much more should I give?

    Motomom... most of the vets have ... worked for wages for over half of their career that were barely over the poverty level, endured long seperations from their families, wounds, posioning by toxic agents (agent Orange), lived in places that most civilians would not /were not willing to live in and did a job that most are unwilling to do... i think that over the 20 + years that they worked to retire, that they have already paid their fair share.

    I have nothing but disdain for Obama and his anti-military stance. He is so anti-American that it just makes me crazy. I just don't get all the sheeple that think he is the next Messiah. If we collectively don't get informed, get an active voice, and make some changes we will all be in trouble.
