Do we treat our Military any better?
Why is the biggest single % of our rates (local taxes) squandered on inflation linked pensions for early retirement parasites from Local Government and the kleptocratic QUANGOcracy and the like. Why are we paying OUR Police to act as murder squads on the streets enforcing laws we do not believe in and taxing us at every turn.
Why are we funding the utterly dishonest non science of anthropomorphised climate change and global warming. NOT ONE unqualified fact has been led by a qualified scientist unchallenged by his peers to PROVE that mankind has had any material significant effect on climate or global warming – NOT ONE yet we are increasingly taxed to pay for the lies!
It has been proven beyond all doubt that wind power achieves the sum total of nothing to benefit mankind, our climate or global warming – so why do we have to pay to subsidise it?.
WHY do MEPs get paid so much to betray Britain and then have a further £Million they can trouser each term in office, followed by a pension which outstrips the National average salary?
MEPs have absolutely no job to do and make absolutely no difference or input to ANYTHING.
Name a single solitary thing that any British MEP has EVER done that you can remember, since we have had MEPs in 1970 – Just ONE meaningful achievement, a single ONE of them has had.
MPs are little better nowadays with over 75% of all law being imposed by the EU (regardless of the lies of Caroline Flint on behalf of the crooks in Brown’s sordid anti British Cabinet).
Try to name a single MP who has justified their share of the £100,000,000 our MPs cost us each year – that is an average cost of £1,557,600 each!
1/2hr. of childish braying once a week at Prime Minister’s slanging match and yet only ONE Labour back bencher turned up to the last Defence Debate when our troops are dying in a senseless and unlawfull war which you and I the tax payer are about to spend another fortune on providing a cover-up in secret for to prevent the truth being told and Blair, Straw, Brown and the rest of Blair’s shameful Cabinet being put on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity; for their lies and deception that has led to the murder of a Million Iraqi civilians and British & American troops.
18 months ago the present Government came to the rational and considered decision that it was in the Country’s best interests and the safety of our peoples’ interests and that of our allies to renew and replace Trident.
Perhaps that same Government can explain in detail why strategically and tactically they were wrong in that decision and what circumstances have changed either tactically or strategically that our peoples, Country and allies would be best served by now deciding NOT to renew and replace Trident.
I put to you that it has absolutely nothing to do with military and security considerations it is merely that our Politicians have made such an unholy and incompetent mess of their job and our economy that they can no longer afford to defend us!
May I also point out that during a period when even the man in the street, who has deliberately been kept in the dark, has become aware that driving around in mine fields and subject to IEDs in Iraq & Afghanistan in banged out old snatch landrovers many second hand from Northern Ireland is no way to arm and protect our soldiers. Nor for that matter is sending them into battle without proper armaments or the helicopters they need for cover; just because the Generals are too busy protecting their pensions to speak out or too determined to wait, whilst the soldiers are killed, for expensive ‘boys toys’ that are unsuitable as they will each be far too expensive to risk in battle!
We need properly armoured APCs, adequately armoured transport where the driver does NOT sit over the wheels in the blast zone from a mine!
We need quantities of helicopters that can insert and extract soldiers at speed in safety NOT massively expensive EU junk, but off the shelf technology from the US.
Look at it from an American perspective it just isn’t so very different:
I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.?
If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.
Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.
Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it's not enough.?Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.?
Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers. (Actually, soldiers are put in harms way by politicians and commanding officers.)
We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.
You see where this is going, don't you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It's just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing? Make sense?
However, our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. Many of you don't know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month.
And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.
They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn't have to pay into the system.
If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.
I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks` before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.
"When do we finally do something about this?" If this doesn't seem fair to you, it is time to forward this to as many people as you can.
How many people
send this to?
WILL YOU ?

‘The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians
will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt
in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not
leave the EU.
The ugly, centralised, undemocratic supra national policies being imposed by the centralised and largely unelected decisionmakers of The EU for alien aims, ailien values and to suit alien needs stand every possibility of creating 200,000,000 deaths across EUrope as a result of the blind arrogance and hubris of the idiologues in the central dictatorship, and their economic illiteracy marching hand in glove with the idiocy of The CAP & The CFP - both policies which deliver bills, destroy lives and denude food stocks.
The EU, due to the political idiocy and corruption of its undemocratic leaders, is now a net importer of food, no longer able to feed itself and with a decreasing range of over priced goods of little use to the rest of the world to sell with which to counter the net financial drain of endless imports.
British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit
of their own agenda and greed, have done more
damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy
of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain
into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own
personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain
more than the armies of Hitler
and the Franco - German - Italian axis of 1939 - 1945.
