If they do, they do s0 at their political peril.   We veterans sacrifices for 20 years plus, in many instances putting ourselves in harm’s way in order to protect this nation, and now the politicians are threatening our retirement benefits.  They are targeting the “working age retirees” on this one.  “Working age retirees”?!?!?  What the hell, you have to work because you cannot live solely on a single enlisted retirement and expect to be an any way comfortable.  This is unconscionable and cannot be allowed to pass.  I urge ALL retirees and future retirees to contact their Reps and tell them to resist all efforts to  do this. I did…  Read the comments on this stories site.  It pretty much says it all…

My Letter:

The enemies of the veterans are at it again, trying to renege on the benefits promised to us upon 20+ years of faithful service.  If the GOP or Democrats allows this to happen, the GOP and Democrats will feel the wrath of the veterans at the polls.  I urge you to resist all efforts to erode our benefits.  This latest scheme targets the “working age” retirees.  I am sick and tired of my government “Targeting” me, through taxes and now this.  My wife and I childless, not by choice and we get raped every year in taxes, and now the possibility of our health insurance being screwed up too.  My health is failing and I am none too happy about this situation.  The term “working age retirees” is a joke.  You cannot live on Military retirement only.  You have to work if you want to live any decent existence.  I don’t need the government further eroding my standard of living especially since I/we worked over 20 years for my military retirement benefits.  When the nation forgets about the vets, the nation will suffer for it.

Vets march on Capitol Hill

    Is this what our government means when they say they are going to bring our Troops home? The price our Military personnel pay’s for our government’s agenda to acquire monetary wealth and domination is not morally justified. The Government has the resources to pay for the health care of all Veterans and they need not impose any more hardships on them than they already have. It’s all about making the American people take the brunt of Government cut backs while our elected officials give themselves Carte Blanche. This video should pretty much clarify our government’s agenda. If you are easily offended by coarse language, violence, find it difficult to see human suffering or don’t believe in conspiracy theories “DO NOT WATCH IT”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2itUVZmsRI&feature=player_embedded Of course this could just be speculation and just a realistic compilation of events which lead to the truth. You have to be the judge of that. The questions that arise about 9/11, the Kennedy assassination and Vietnam, just to mention a few events lead me to believe the latter.

    Our Commander in Chief Barack Obama’s father served in the Military. You know, the one that presides over, what was it 57 States? A Nobel Peace Prize recipient. Yeah, the one that holds Reverend Jeremiah Wright as his Mentor.

    Obama’s father served in WW II? Really?

    Of all the things I’ve seen or heard about Obama on the internet, NONE has hit me like this one!!!
    How can we not believe some of the charges about citizenship, religion, etc., after hearing what he says on this?

    Obama said his father served in WW II?
    Barack’s father served in WW II?? He said so in a speech.
    Here is an 18 second video:

    CNN news clip:

    Is he a compulsive liar? Were there no reporters who checked or double checked these statements and called the party on this?
    They did for everyone else. Why not him?

    Like it or not, here are the TRUE facts:

    Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama’s father)
    Born: 4/4/36 Died: 11/24/82 at the age of 46. He was 5 years old when WW 2 started, and less than 9.5 years old when it ended.

    Lolo Soetoro (Obama’s step father)

    Born: 1935 Died: 3/2/87 at the age of 52. He was 6 years old when WW 2 started, and 10 years old when it ended.
    He must have been the youngest Veteran in the war.

    Watch the video. RIGHT OUT OF HIS MOUTH!!!

    And the media doesn’t say anything.
    If you doubt it, Google both of these guys.

    It appears this guy doesn’t know how to tell the truth — or he doesn’t care about telling the truth! — or perhaps he doesn’t know when he isn’t telling the truth (which is also a very scary angle on it).

    Talk about STOLEN HONOR!!!

    The CNN clip of Obama is surprising. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that this lie wasn’t uncovered, questioned and debated before the Nov. 2008 election. Oh well. He must have just “forgotten” the facts, again. Or perhaps he really doesn’t even know the difference between truth and fabrication?

    This should be sent to every Veterans group in the USA !! STOLEN HONOR!!!!

    The 2012 campaign trails are fast approaching and this Muslim Barack Hussein Obama, (Americas first illegal alien President) will have served his whole term as Commander in Chief of the United States of America.
    The America our Military fought for and still fights for is gone. We are under a Socialist Dictatorship and no one will or can do anything about it. Our Congress, News Media and the entire Homeland Security Agencies are involved. Oh sure, go ahead and laugh, keep your head in the sand but how can stuff like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNt84SToMyY&feature=more_related go on and not be confronted. How can Obama continue to not show proof of his birth? It appears that even his own family doesn’t know where he was born or who his real father is. Could his real father be someone like Qaddafi or some other Muslim Tyrant or is he just some unwanted orphan that was brainwashed by our own government? Voting is a joke and this video only shows a small percentage of the corruption that lives in our government. Our Dictating government will do as they please and if the American people physically stand up for themselves they will see first hand just what kind of government they are working for. Police States and Interpol will be in charge and you will see something that will make the American people fear for their lives.
    The American people are fools to let their own Government control every aspect of their lives the way they do. Just who in the Hell do they think they are? Royalty? They act like they are and they demand respect from the people. Just how is it when things get bad the government never considers cutting back on their own salary and benefits? Our Government is doing a great job of controlling the American people and they will continue to do so. One of the biggest problems is, is that our government has been taking away our Freedom a little bit at a time and imposing more control a little at a time so the American just doesn’t realize just how bad things really are. Just for example, how in the Hell is it when you go to a local bar to get a drink, sit down and relax, you have to go outside to have a smoke? At least that’s the way it is here in the Sunshine State. I mean we used to be able to go to any bar and have to put up with people having a smoke while they enjoy themselves and that’s OK, it was part of the experience. That’s huge loss of Freedom. If non smokers don’t like it, well stay home. How the American people can continue to let their own Government run over them like this is un-comprehensible. It’s already too much that they continue wasteful spending, raise taxes, create more laws, not to mention asking men and women to serve their country and pay the ultimate sacrifice for what our government gets us involved in. Then the Government shows their gratitude by screwing with the Veterans health care and turning America into a Communist country with a Muslim sitting in the White House. Man, what a slap in face for all Americans. Why, just the other day I had a bunch of delusional (whatever they were) screaming out their window at me as they drove by “OBAMA RULES”. What the Hell was that about? I’m telling ya man, terrorist, illegals and criminals are not the only thing America has to worry about. Our future doesn’t look as bright as it used to.
