    hell no the goddamn recession ain't over. It ain't no where close to being over and won't be until the socialist policies of our current government are done away with.

    Can you explain how you reconcile your opposition to socialism with the tax payer funded practices & policies of the U.S. government in regards to its military? Further more can you explain how you view the use of these policies and practices by members who do not serve anywhere near a field of combat i.e. paper pushers in the military? When I say policies & practices, I mean the tax payer funded benefits tax payers pay for even though people in the military already have a job which pays them money. Hold the 'You hate the troops' please. I'm very curious to see you give an answer which isn't scripted.

    Well, I'd like to step in an answer a question posed for another DP member.

    I support giving our troops benefits, from the "paper pushers" to the front line troops. Why? Because without the "paper pushers" the front line troops wouldn't have coordinated orders, supplies, food, etc. You should NOT be required to be in active combat, nor required to be unemployed in the civilian world to get the full benefits that should come with being a soldier.

    That part of the military budget I have NO problems with. While I am not a soldier, I sure know a bunch personally in just about every branch of the military except the Coast Guard. They deserve the pay they get, every penny, because each has an important job in their branch. Every job is important as the military is like a well oiled machine. You can't just arbitrarily stop oiling one part because you don't really see much need for it.

    I hope this was clear and didn't derail the thread. I am sorry if it did.

    So in other words you support some forms of socialism. Not others.

    Because the military is what it is. The environment you find in the military exists for a reason. The reason is to enforce discipline, comradeship and unit cohesion. What happens in a civilian job when things get to nasty, scary, ugly and hard? People quit, right? That can't be allowed to happen in a military unit.

    The soldiers that, "just push papers", are still soldiers. Everyone in the Army is a rifleman, that exists moreso in the Marine Corps. Those paper pushers could very easily find themselves locking horns with the enemy and will need to display the same level of discipline as a front line infantry soldier.

    People chose to make the sacrifice of their civilian freedoms, to serve in the military, in order to protect the freedoms of the rest of the Americans who either can't, or won't serve.

    People in on active duty don't have, nor are they allowed to have civilian jobs. Reserve component soldiers have a civilian job, yet don't have the same post privelages as active duty personel. Free medical care, PX and commisary priviledges, etc.

    Most soldiers's salaries are below the poverty level. It wasn't until I made it to pay grade of E-5 that I was above the poverty level, then dipped below the poverty level again when I got married and didn't rise above it until I was promoted to E-6. I'd say that the bennies they get are well deserved.
