Wow, President Obama has been outstanding in his leadership and policies to go after and get America’s enemies…

First he transformed the Muslim world with his speech in Cairo that started the domino effect of Muslims rising up across that region.
He won the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Then he found and killed Osama Bin Laden.
And now he will have finally gotten Gaddafi… this is great news.

Bush started the wars in Iraq in Afganistan, so by your logic that makes Bush a hero as well. He was the one who created the opportunity for these "victories" to happen.

Yeah, good song. Like it says, "Bye Bye So Long Farewell. Have a good time, but remember, there is Danger in a Summer Love. Will I see you in September, or lose you to a Summer Love?" While Obama builds sand castles on Martha's Vinyard, home sales fell 3.5% last month,IHS Global Insight pegs the chance of another recession at 40%,factory activity has dipped significantly, the Fed can't help much, the Dow is in self-feeding free fall, the Eurozone is drowning in debt, Congress does not give a rat's furry ass, oil price spikes are a constant threat, nobody's hiring. But what the hell, it's vacation time.

Yes. And if the plan is approved, welcome back draft.

Actually just the opposite will happen.

No 18-24 y/o joins the mililtary for the 20 yr retirement. That only became a factor for the majority of us once we reached the 10 yr point. The current system actually DISCOURAGES people from staying in after 8 years because then they'll be past 10 years and that's halfway to a retirement. So instead they get out at 8 years with nothing.

Under the new program we would actually be able to encourage people to enlist and stay 4-8-12 years, but then get out with a nice 401k. It would also elimintate most of the dead wood in the current military with over 15 yrs in who are just waiting around for retirement.
