    Military down sizeing

    The Army would shrink to 380,000 troops, the Marines Corps to 150,000.
    The Navy would lose three carriers, and the Air Force would begin
    mothballing its B-52 bomber fleet under a worst-case budget scenario
    outlined Wednesday by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

    In addition, Tricare fees would go up, housing allowances would be slashed,
    pay raises would be scaled back, and commissary subsidies would be reduced, Hagel said -- unless Congress and the White House can agree to lift the sequestration deficit-reduction process that is projected to take
    $500 billion out of defense budgets over the next 10 years.

    The re-balance of forces to the Pacific under the national defense strategy introduced by President Obama would also come under renewed scrutiny
    from the budget planners.

    Why not, we're a laughingstock throughout the world already since obama.
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

  4. And the military is not the only group affected. Wait until the "trickle-down" poverty affects we millions of Americans!

    First thing to do for the Air Force, ground the VC-25As. That would save up to 100 million per trip of the Pres.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.
