It has been a recurring theme throughout the Douchebag-in-Chief’s reign of error that he really, really likes to pick fights with people way over his weight class, presumably to make himself so unpopular with them that they’ll have no choice but to support him… No, it doesn’t make any sense to us either.
But now he’s picking fights with people who already hate his guts. Has he run out of groups that don’t already get the warm and fuzzies just thinking about him dipped in tar and rolled in feathers?
The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.
Because L-rd knows our military is already rolling in dough from their unreasonably high salaries, not to mention the joy of having the best healthcare plan in the world, if not the UNIVERSE! Let’s charge them MORE for it!
We’ve said it before, and here it goes again: Every single time we think he has done something to disgustingly vile that there is no way the jugeared wanker can out-douche himself, he proves us wrong.
We may have to shut the entire nation down for a couple of weeks starting January 21, 2013, just to get past the celebrations in the streets.
Does he seriously want the military to turn against him?
Great idea. Let’s encourage this sort of asstardery. Maybe it’s time to push your average Idol-loving nincompoop over the brink.
Someone should remind Der Fubar that the Romans understood that the FIRST thing you did was pay the Legions. I think a few Caesars found out what happens when they didn’t.

Der Fubar. I love it.
I can’t claim credit. I got it from “His Royal Imperial Highness, Emperor Misha I the Great!”

Yep. I pay $460 per year for TriCare Prime. My primary care clinic is shared with the Medicaid and welfare patient crowd, so we know there aren’t any concierge physicians on THAT block. I don’t often see a “real” doctor, but on the up side, the care I’ve gotten has been excellent, if a bit slow. But Il Douche wants… Read more »

Just Another Random Nut @ #: People don’t believe me when I tell them that conservatives are better company than liberals.

A good question.
I will say that I’ve overheard conversations among very senior current members of the military about exactly that – when does the line get crossed and what does the Oath obligate the military to do about it?
I have a feeling they’re getting a lot closer to that line than they think they are.

Orion @ # 11: Mark12A @ # 7: I retired 18 years ago. When I joined, the military had some of THE greatest healthcare to be found, and I was guaranteed free healthcare for life for having written that blank check.

Oh yes! Yes we did!
Here, look at this one:
When I volunteered back it the dark days of the mid 70s, right after Vietnam (Did you know John Kerry served there?), we had excellent health care, although I think some of it might have been experimental, it still worked. My recruiter promised me “free” lifetime care if I managed to make it to 20 years. Now it seems I… Read more »

LC Subotai Bahadur, Lord Pao An @ #: Historically, military takeovers do not work out well. I think it depends on how it is done.

My husband retired from the Sub service back on September of ’03, on the heels of a return from the Middle East (his boat was also in the Persian Gulf on 9/11). I have consistently refused over the years to sign us up for Tricare Prime, since a) it costs money, and we were promised we’d never have to pay… Read more »
Because I am unemployed, I pay $410 per month for health insurance through the State of NY. It is good, though.
And yet, with all the things you listed that are against Obama, he may very well win through Chicago thug politics. And that scares the hell out of me.
#19 angrywebmaster Historically, they don’t. But most examples are not from the Anglo-sphere, and definitely it has not been done here before. Up until the 1970’s, most changes of government worldwide were one form of coup or another, usually military. Your plan is how to do it right.

I’m waving the bullshit flag. When the budget was at an impasse, what were the major things Il Douche threatened? Anyone? Military pay and social security.

I suppose that the military could all get better medical benefits by joining the SEIU or forming their own union which would then cost them twice as much with the dues and Democrat Party contributions. That means the troops would get what the government and the union bosses want them to have: less for more.
angrywebmaster @ #: Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately depending on your view), zero spends most of his time hobbing and nobbing with the political generals rather than the “little bastards with the guns and bayonets who winkle the other bastards out of their holes and get them to sign the peace treaties.” (from Infantry Small Arms my copy of which I… Read more »
