    Why is it that the military is doing their job and not getting paid, but Congress is not doing their job and getting paid?

    Crazy Eyes Cortez was 100% correct when she said that Congress should be the ones going without pay.

    Congress gets the cream while the rest of the country gets the crumbs. Like Mike Savage said, they're a bunch of lying bastards.

    If you don't like your politicians, try voting for different ones.

    Congress targets cutting money from people within society that will generate the most outrage from that society.

    Those in the military are one such group.

    Usually when the government wants the citizens to vote to raise taxes, as a rule, it is to improve the schools or keep the police or fire fighters on the streets etc. Those at the top, who may mismanage the money they were given, never take a pay cut. They just put a gun to our collective heads and demand the cash!

    Notice, they NEVER cut funds to stop that war over in Libya or funds to study the mating habits of a homosexual wart hog or money used to build an endless army of drones to spy on it's own law abiding citizens, etc.

    When Donald Trump won the election, you said you were happy with that outcome.

    Turns out that putting morons and crooks in charge leads to undesirable results. Who would've thunk?

    And you never hear about welfare going bankrupt, but social security is, even when one pays into it for decades.

    It's going to take fifty years to undo the damage the liberal agenda has done.

    Only a bloody revolution is going to fix the problem.

    Please say it ain't so Joe. We've already had 40 years of conservatism. Do we really need to have 10 more? Your conservative cure is essentially like medieval doctors bleeding a sick patient.

    Deadly and barbaric!
