Getting money to the Troops? White House: 3.5 percent pay hike unnecessary
Edited on Thu May-17-07 09:13 AM by genie_weenie
How can the Terrorist Regime in DC ever talk about getting money to the troops? Combined with the paltry pay increase last year (2.2%) how the FUCK can bush get away with it?


Troops dont need bigger pay raises, White House budget officials said Wednesday...

2. Why do republicons HATE our troops and our veterans?
Edited on Thu May-17-07 09:06 AM by SpiralHawk
Republicons prove thier DISDAIN over and over and over.

I think it's because republicons are AShAMED that their great Connecticut preppy cheerleader pResidential hero is a DESERTER from the National Guard, and his backup hero, VP Dick Cheney has a record-breaking five (5) military deferments.

Not to mention that their adored Corporate Media Propagandists -- Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, etc. -- are all unrepentant CHICKENHAWKS who never served for even five minutes.

All in all, republicons prove themselves to be an 'elite' corps of impudent snob chickenhawks

Thus, patritotic Americans must conclude that it is republicon SHAME that is then perverted into resentment and hate that is then PROJECTED onto our American soliders and veterans.

3. White House "supporst the troops"
Edited on Thu May-17-07 09:02 AM by hobbit709
by not giving them anything they need, continually shortchanging them and finally screwing them every way they can. Not only that, then they expect the troop to suply their own vaseline.
