Are You Kidding? Cutting Military Pay/Benefits Good for Troops??

Cutting military pay and benefits will raise discipline. We had to destroy the village in order to save it. LOL! Thanks Obama! Vladimir Putin thanks you too! I am proud to say I voted for Obama in 2012 exactly for this sort of thing!


On Thursday, Micheal Barrett, Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, stood before the Senate and testified that service-members would do better with lower pay and less compensation. In fact, he said, “I truly believe it will raise discipline. You’ll have better spending habits. You won’t be so wasteful.”

Ponder with me, for a moment, the richness of this. The guy making more money than any other enlisted member in the Marine Corps on the eve of his retirement, representing an institution that has dodged an audit for nearly 20 years and insists it won’t be ready for an audit until 2017, stands in front of a Congress full of millionaires that can’t even balance its own budget and says service-members are wasteful in their own personal budgetary practices. Now, as we say back in Texas, don’t pee on my boots and tell me it’s rain.

    Privates and corporals are frequently young men in their first job. They often don’t spend wisely. All you can really do is treat them like adults in need of teaching.and let them have their experiences. More money, less money; they’ll screw up either way.
    Then, sergeants major get there, in part, by telling the bosses what they want to hear. The real military waste is on equipment and the missions the man are given.
