SO Someone emailed us the following statements made by our current president! I have a lot to say but will post it at the bottom after his statement!!
THIS MOST UNBELIEVABLE PRESIDENT?
HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO REQUIRE THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.
Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty. The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal.
"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country, "Obama continued "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit.. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."
Please pass this on to every one including every vet and their families whom you know. How in the world did a person with this mindset become our leader?
REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT.... "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice?"
Now I usually refrain from cursing in my blogs because it can be offensive to some people. However I really have to know if we have a president that is simply out of his F'ng Mind!! First let me say I am in the military and absolutely volunteered to enlist, I a woman there is no way I would be drafted into the military. However I volunteered and even went on deployment with out complaint because I was assured that if I suffered injuries or life changing illness the government would be there to help me recover and return to my life. How dare this pissy ass man who hasn't bothered to enlist in any military services or go on a deployment to defend our country try to say that we should all now take out private insurance to cover our medical bills. I don't know one person who would volunteer to enlist if they knew from day one they would be bankrupt attempting to pay for the injuries they encure during deployment!
Now don't take me wrong, I don't think a person has a right to enlist, take part in the education benefits and then complain about deployment. You enlist, then when you get the call you go no questions ask! That is how it is, it's what you sign up for, but you do it knowing that if you serve your country then your country will take care of you afterward. This has to be the most offensive thing this man has said so far!
I could rant about this forever but I will leave it for now!
