CA gets $4 billion dollars from the fed to save a minnow! I think it would be a good thing if all pet projects were ended... Let the Fed shut down! I'm an E-5 in the USAF. We got a 1.6% pay raise this year. That's something like 20 whole dollars for me. Woohoo! My power bill has gone up 4 times, the cost of food has almost doubled, and the sky is the limit on gas. A brand new officer in the military makes more than an enlisted E-5 that's been in 12 years. I'd get a second job if they would let me! I have to spend 10-14 hours a day working a few jets just to make numbers better to keep leadership off my ass! Ya'll see something wrong with this picture? Military officers and federal politicians need a pay cut! Maybe I should get married... that'd be somewhere around $500 a month pay raise and I'd have somebody to cook and clean for me! Yep, that's what I gotta do...
