Obama To Veterans: BOHICA!

Posted September 25th, 2012 by Iron Mike

We military types use dark humor to deal with bad things.  We even make up acronyms for them – like BOHICA!

How many times have you seen Obama – and even his military-hating wife – pose using soldiers as campaign props?  At RRB we’ve remarked on it before.

Now veterans should Bend Over, because here comes your next Obama suppository – your Tricare medical premiums and co-pays are about to triple. Essentially Obama wants you OFF Tricare – and ON ObamaCare!
“Thank you very F^@king Much for your service!”

I remember back in the early 60s, the re-up talks – ‘…and free medical care for life!’  Right!  Not!  Congress reneged on that deal long ago.  We veterans pay a yearly premium, and co-pays on almost every service and prescription.

And the truck wasn’t waiting on the drop zone either!

So Obama and the Democrats will try to balance the bloated federal budget on the backs of retired and wounded veterans.  Of course it ain’t right, – but we are an ever-shrinking minority.

During WWII we had 16,000,000 men and women in uniform – about 10% of our population, with an equal number of civilians working in the war industries.

Today our military has shrunk to about 1,600,000 – just 2% of our population.

Our WWII, Korea, and now our Vietnam vets are rapidly dying off.  There are far fewer voices to speak for us, and far fewer veteran votes that anti-Americans like Obama need worry about. 

The administration’s admitted objective to Congress, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon, is “to force military retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare.”

Soon he’ll stop thanking us for our service, and start demanding that ‘we pay our fair share’.  Long forgotten will be the promises of ‘free medical for life’.

We’ll be lumped together with those ‘rich greedy billionaires’ and vilified.

To all my military Brothers and Sisters – WARNING:

Do NOT trust this president – do NOT VOTE for him! I don’t care if he once looked you in the eye, – once shook hands with you, – even played some hoop with you – he doesn’t really like you, and he doesn’t care about you.

To him you are ‘the trappings of office’ – just totally disposable stage props for his ongoing political career.  The hardest-assed sergeant you ever worked under cares more about you than this narcissistic phony.

He knows you’re starting to ‘get it’.  Why do you think his people are making it so hard for deployed troops to vote?  He doesn’t have your back, – he’s up your backside!

    Obama’s speeches always have stage props in the background. Usually his aides go out into the audience and recruit people to stand behind Obama and represent the public. Occasionally one of these people becomes a news story, but it’s all fake.

    It’s as if Obama believes subliminal messages are the key to fooling the public. He must be fascinated by that sort of sneaky campaign tactics for his propaganda.

    I recall my early USAF years and dependent medical care was a snap. We didn’t worry about stuff, there was a wait, but everybody was served.

    Then, Carter happened.

    Everthing was handled until then. A Chili Cook-off was organized to raise money for a kidney transplant for a senior enlisted’s daughter on Ft. Meade. The squid living next door was denied re-enlistment because his autistic daughter was an expense. ‘Members’ had to live within dying distance of a military medical facility. Insurance scams of all sorts followed.

    Then Obama happened.

    I’m sure things have changed since I’ve left the Service – for the worst.
