This majorly pisses me off.

  While Obama and his Democrats live like kings and spend the country into the poorhouse, they have eliminated hot breakfasts for troops stationed at forward bases in Afghanistan.

  "The Army has stopped serving cooked breakfasts to some of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with cereal, breakfast bars and other foods.
The Army told the Washington Guardian the current cutbacks began Jan. 1, and affect about 2,700 soldiers deployed in forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan.
The Washington Guardian reported earlier this month that the current budget crisis in Congress prompted Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to write a memo order preparations for sweeping budget cuts across all military programs to begin as early as next month.
Officials stressed other comforts at the forward operating bases may also soon be reduced, such as laundry and recreation, as officials look for other ways to reduce the American footprint in advance of departing the country.
They said the meal cutbacks are currently affecting forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan and not affecting the main American bases in Kabul and Kandahar."

  Question: if the troops can get care packages from their families at home, how is it that they can't get hot breakfasts?

  "President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, and 218 guests feasted on steamed lobster, grilled bison and apple pie à la mode at the 2013 inaugural luncheon at Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 21.
According to the menu posted online by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, the three-course meal included hearty main courses accompanied by fresh heirloom vegetables and dessert of pie, ice cream and assorted cheeses."
 This honestly sounds like something from the "last days of the Roman Empire" where the emperor fiddles, purposely ignoring a burning Rome.
If anyone doesn't think that Obama and his ilk hate the military, this should disabuse them of that quaint notion.
