“Tired of being threatened and pestered”

Most of we the people are tired of being threatened and pestered, especially by people who legally rob us with government jobs, about this insignificant (to us) 2.3 percent federal budget-increase-cut sequester. We can start, at places like the bases, by firing all of these chiefs of installation protocol, and diversity and sensitivity advisors, contractors, consultants, teachers and trainers. Of course, we can likewise advise these single mothers and others to get their alimony and child support; or, like ya know, tell their sad stories on the Doctor Phil, Maury Povich and Jerry Springer TV shows.
As an old Cold Warrior, I have had more than my fair share of Pentagon pork, not that I ever faced or fired a hostile shot. In addition to this dreadful defense-contractor, patriotic Pentagon-PAC-rat, and military-media budget-sequester hysteria, we the people have heard and learned that we apparently have an extra $60 million to send to Syria.
