#1 Any thought to cutting the 'pay and benefits' of the butchers at Planned Parenthood, the trouble making State Department, the feckless UN, the PLO, or the Paks ?

#2 Let me get this straight, you aren't going to pay about a million guys who make their living professionally with guns? That should work.

And these same men protect your institutions and your lives ( and your little dog's too ). Sounds like a truly winning plan to me.

Plus, let's get rid of Rumsfeld.

#3 Words I'm sure Secretary Hagel would have responded to affirmatively 40+ years ago, while he was in Vietnam.

New day, new handler. :-(

#4 The USA use to spend ~62% of the budget on defense and ~22% on entitlements; today that is flipped. You would think the few constitutional federal departments would be the last place to cut. Particular during national threats.

#5 Airandee, see that's the thing. Obama has eliminated all the threats against us. So we don't really need the military any more.

#6 This is why Obama wanted Hagel as Sec. of Defense. To put a Republican face on the dismantling of our military.

#7 PCorrectly-Deniably surrendering East Asia + 1/2 of the Pacific to OWG Globalism + our Chinese = future OWG "Asian Union", Other? "Co-Superpower".
