    For those of us in the military, what does Obama being president mean for us for the next 4 years? How are we going to be effected?

    Vague but true.....democrats (Senate and Presidential) have been proven time and time again that they think that all we are is just a drain on the economy, and would rather put the money from a well funded and equipped military into socialized healthcare and welfare programs....and to kiss whoevers ass is threatening us.

    1. His platform calls for adding an additional 64,000 soldiers and 28,000 Marines into active duty -- effectively a 10% increase in total head count

    2. He supposedly wants to plan out withdrawal from Iraq within the next year or so

    3. He wants to refocus the fight against Taliban and Al Queda forces in Afghanistan and Pakistan, this has no timeline

    4. He's also for increasing the GI Bill and VA support

    But then again, he's a politician. Who knows what he'll do once the $5 trillion bailout he helped to vote in will do to our economy.

    I'd tell you to shut yours and stop talking shit about your new commander in chief, but I believe in your right to be a crybaby

    Democrats love to spend money, problem is they love to spend it on other things besides the military.

    Bonuses won't be affected until NEXT october more than likely.

    I was thinking about making this thread, but realized it probably wasn't a good idea. This has been made obvious.

    :hsugh: to those who think officer force shaping is suddenly going to happen. I know the AF does stupid ass shit and may currently be force shaping but things are great over here in the DoN. Anytime force shaping happens, we simply trim the fat that needed to be gone long ago. There is always going to be people around that don't belong. If you're not one of those, you should never fear being let go.

    Before we ever think about cutting personnel, we simply need to cut back on all forms of government waste. I've only been in 3 years, but through my time in flight training, I have wasted so much money for no good reason. For example, I flew to P'cola this past weekend to conduct what amounted to about 4hrs of training. The problem is they had my TDY orders for 5 DAYS!!! Why in the world did I need this?

    Or how about the time I sat on my ass for 4 months straight with no job whatsoever (as in sitting at home) as I waited to class up at my first school.
