Well, hooray and halleluiah, Barack Obama finally found something he could agree to cut in our federal budget. With our current federal deficit at the highest amount it’s ever been, near $20 trillion, that is welcome news.
Well, maybe not.
That is because this budget cutting comes at the expense of the men and women, and their families, of the United States military. These are the people , alone among Americans, who offer to give their lives to protect and defend us.
Much of this appalling and often petty behavior on the part of Obama and his Administration came to light as a result of the recent action by officials of the state of California, who had demanded that members of that state’s National Guard return the amounts of money they had been provided for enlisting for active duty, in effect, an enlistment bonus.
