Keep Commissaries Open

What? Take away the military commissaries? Why?

Hasn’t this administration punished its military families enough? As if it isn’t bad enough the way they treat service men and women who put their lives on the line for the good of our country … cutting benefits to veterans, breaking promises, threatening to cut their pay during sequesters and shutdowns?

Come on. Our military is important. It’s not a luxury that you cut out of the federal budget. We need these people. Our security is at stake and this is the way they get treated? The government decides to close the grocery stores where base families can save a few cents, and perhaps hold a part-time job to make up for low wages?

My hubby is a Vietnam veteran and made his career in the military. It breaks his heart (and mine) to see what is happening to veterans and how they are put off, given fewer and fewer benefits, and the way the VA hospitals are so crowded and hard to deal with.

This is no way to treat those who serve, those who are brave enough to put their lives on the line … for FREEDOM!

I say NO! Keep the commissaries open. If you’re one of those people who dislikes the military, then I suggest you give some thought about your own life and the freedoms you enjoy. Who went to defend that freedom while you were griping about it?

Outraged by the lies and deceit

For weeks now, I’ve been fuming. My hubby and I have been so outraged at the lies … and the lies about the lies! So outraged that I haven’t even been able to write on this blog.

Just keeping my wits about me has been a challenge. The OCS continues to spit in our faces every day, each time appearing more flagrant and demonical, growing more overbearing and
arrogant as time goes on.

Why is it that some people in power can outright LIE and always get away with it? And when they get coerced into offering an “apology” it’s not really that … it’s just an opportunity to shift the blame.

How do you get friends and family members to open their eyes and see the Big Picture? Why are so many resisting what is so obviously a scam as the AFA (which is anything BUT affordable)? And why can’t they see that this was set up from the very beginning to be the foot-in-the-door to force our country into socialism?

Pay attention, PLEASE! It makes me so sad to see that my “happy days” of youth will not get passed on to my children, who are supposed to be in their own “happy days” right now.

But they aren’t. They are straddled with debt up to their ears and beyond … with waning hopes of ever owning their own home … and what about my grandson? What kind of world have they doomed him to when we move from America the Beautiful into the USSA?

Because I’m the kind of person I am, I don’t enjoy ranting and raving about all of this insanity. I resist confrontations. But even though it’s painful and I don’t like to do it … I need to speak out. We all do.

Even if I have friends and relatives on the Left who do not like me demolishing their misguided ideals, I will continue to do it. Why? Because if I don’t, I deserve to live (like them) in a tyrannical society, and I refuse to have my God-given rights stripped from me by people who are self-proclaimed “do gooders” and do not adhere to our Constitution.

I decide what is good for me, not the OCS.

My voice, and YOUR voice, needs to be heard.

Let Freedom Ring!!
