My opinion on the Pay Freeze *warning- may include foul language, may hurt your feelings*

Let me start with a quote from Army Times-

"A three-year freeze on basic pay and military housing and food allowances is among 58 recommendations contained in the draft report of President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform that was released Wednesday."

Let's break this down some...

It says "among 58 recommendations"...what are recommendations?

rec·om·men·da·tion –
1. an act of recommending.
2. a letter or the like recommending a person or thing.
3. representation in favor of a person or thing.
4. anything that serves to recommend a person or thing, or induce acceptance or favor.

So, it is correct to assume that this won't even happen right? This is only a recommendation it comes...wait for it..President Obama himself? NO! So stop blaming him for everything!! It was recommended by President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. Now, what do they do exactly? What is their job? Do you know? No? Let me shed some light for you...

President Obama created the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform to address our nation's fiscal challenges. The Commission is charged with identifying policies to improve the fiscal situation in the medium term and to achieve fiscal sustainability over the long run.

Here is a list of the member if you care to look, but I doubt you're really that interested since you will only blame Presdient Obama anyway, but just incase you're curious... Commission Members

And look, here are their meetings! Commission Meetings

I'd like to point out certain parts of the Charter if I may and I will link it when I'm done as well...

3. Objectives and Scope of Activities. The objective of the Commission is to identify to the President policies to improve the fiscal situation in the medium term and to achieve fiscal sustainability over the long run.

4. Description of Duties. The functions of the Commission are advisory only.

Don't forget to read the By Laws too!

((welll would ya look at that?! hot damn!))

So, are you Military wives only complaining b/c this about the pay? Here's how I look at it.... at least my husband is getting paid!!! He didn't lose his job, did he? How many people out there are just dying to get jobs? How many are military spouses? Instead of bitching and complaining about something that was RECOMMENDED to the President, get off your ungrateful ass and do something about it!!

What happens if this goes through? How are you going to act? Be pissed off and shout all over facebook will not be the answer. Get your ass out there and take advantage of classes by the ACS on budgeting and such. Get your ass out and get a damned job... who care if it's working Burger King? Are you beneath that because your husband is a soldier? I think not. Any thing you do to help financially contribute to your house would be appreciated by your spouse I'm sure.

We are not exempt from helping this country get better solely because we live the military lifestyle and our loved ones serves. I am disheartened at the amount of people in this life style are angry and bitter....maybe they need to take it back to Jesus... but that is another post =)

Till next time....


  1. GOD BLESS!!!!!!!
    people forget and get all crazy! cry and b!tch and moan but are totaly forgettign that they have a VOICE!they can register to vote and get behind a cause or go up against one!

  2. Well said, Finally someone who actually isn't complaining about what Obama is or isn't doing!

  3. Excellent post. Thanks for your well-thought out response to those who wish to blame Obama for everything that happens in this country.

  4. I hate it when people blame him for everything...drives me insane... like they could do it better...
    and thanks for reading =)

  5. You all are a bunch of idiotic libutards....screw Obama...and the Indonesian horse he rode in on.

  6. I hate when people say nothing is his fault. It irks me that anything that has happened is everyone elses fault but his. Like it or not when a person becomes the president of the united states, he takes the sole blame.. its happened every presidency.. why does he get special treatment?

  7. libutard? lol...
    i never said he gets special treatment, and if you knew anything about me you would know that i have said before the same thing about other presidents... i don't believe any of them deserve full blame for anything... Obama just happens to be the president in office right now so this was about him... funny how someone who didn't vote for him can still try and see all sides... unlike some =)
    and really, why be anonymous? if you want to talk shit, do it, but be yourself...

  8. The very fact that someone resorted to name calling just shows hte depth of their argument. And the names they CHOSE to use indicates a brain washed individual. I am very sick of people not reading this proposal and not understanding that it IS just a proposal. People need to stop being fear mongers and educate themselves.

    rissa (cause it will show up as anon lol)

  9. Oh Rissa... why take the time to educate yourself when you can just follow the pack and do as you're told? LOL

  10. everyone was so quick to blame bush so why can't we blame obama. you're just a silly nigger lover trying to make excuses for your nigger president.

  11. awww, trolling a blog... how fun it is to be a racist piece of shit... did your daddy call you a nigger when tapped that sweet ass?

  12. I don't even know why you are worried about a disgusting racist idiot. This anon psycho is the reason why we should have IQ tests before allowing people to vote. Hey you, piece of shit, I would much rather be what you called Jamie than a sorry excuse for a human like you. get a fucking life.


  13. I wouldn't be upset about this except that the members of congress are getting their raises. If anyone should not receive a raise this year, it should be them. If they put a freeze on all government raises then I would be fine with it.

  14. jeannette, i agree with you, if the military gets a pay freeze, so should congress.... that is only fair
