    Big Grin State of the Union

    Advertisements
    Did you watch it last night?

    Am I the only one that just kept getting MORE AND MORE PISSED OFF while watching it?

    This whole minimum wage thing keeps getting to me. So they are raising the minimum wage of Government Contracted workers to $10.10. Isn't that nice? My husband pointed out last night, "Do people even realize that 10 years ago AD military used to do those jobs? As in the kitchen? But due to cut backs they had to hire it out to contractors." Now their giving THEM all a raise and my husband hasn't had one in over three years. Oh and lets not mention the fact that they are closing chow halls overseas!! Awesomesauce!!!

    And for those of you that think it may NOT be true..

    SNOPES! snopes.com: Soldiers Going Hungry

    Because MREs are SO much better for your health!




    Wow! I'm really pissed off about this. Maybe I should have put this in venting. LOL.

    If you read your link you see it has nothing to do with budget issues. It has to do with they are not going to be run by us anymore.

    I don't even watch the SOTU... nothing that man can say will ever get me to watch it... its nothing but fake promises and nothing he says or does will ever be right, IMO.
    I was already annoyed just from the news stations saying that his speech would state that if congress doesn't do what he wants he'll do it anyway.. without their permission or acceptance...
    That just pisses me off. I get there are things he cannot do without congress, but there are a lot of things he can do. That attitude is just shitty. He's throwing a tantrum like a two year old...
    stomping his feet and doing whatever he wants if he doesn't get his way.. and that's just stupid.. and dangerous..

    I don't watch the SOTU. Like others have said, I cannot stand his voice or attitude, and there's nothing in the speech that won't be printed and parsed later on anyways.
