Are these reports that the President wants to cut spending and manpower from the National Guard true?
While we have a shortage of manpower?
While 47% of our fighting force in Iraq and Afghanistan are from National Guard Units?
This is when our President decides, hey, let’s cut the money?
Why? What could he possibly be thinking?
Cutting our military, especially in a time of War (and that’s what the right-wing keeps saying, we’re at war. We can illegally wiretap your phone, because we’re at War.) is not going to help the situation.
The National Guard serves both the states and the federal government. This is not when we should be cutting their budget.
