SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE (KTVI) – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey will visit Scott Air Force Base on Monday.

General Fraser has been in charge of U.S. Transportation Command and it’s 150,000 personnel that deploy ocean vessels, airplanes, trains and trucks in support of U.S. military operations globally.

    So, let’s see, just a few weeks ago the loyal yet dwindling followers of horribly failed extreme right-wing Tea Party tax and spend policies were complaining about a whopping $7 MILLION in Medicaid funds that were found to have been wasted on dead recipients over several years. It was JUST $7 MILLION over several years (I think about 10 or so) which makes it PEANUTS compared to the hundreds of millions we waste in handouts to the rich in tax subsidies and tax cuts, but the brainwashed sheep of the far-right still came on here to complain about it!

    I’m guessing this ONE CEREMONY will likely cost taxpayers $7 MILLION!! Just having their ceremony to change command at our all-important Scott Air Force Base will probably cost at least that, due to the ineptitude and general wasteful attitude the military has towards spending our bottomless pit of unlimited tax money thrown at the military and down the toilet every year.

    But don’t you right-wingers get too upset about THAT! After all, that’s how most of YOU get YOUR welfare checks, right?

      Beyond stupid as usual..The commander in chief is a dog eating socialist democrat, the same who allowed 40 vets to die in arizona waiting for care.Obozo has repeatedly cut the military and also doubled food stamps. Welfare is predominately democrat, which is why a republican like paul ryan was shot down trying to reform it. Baghdah bob, aka, bye bye, is just another loud mouth truth denying liberal democrat that will be shut up in November. until then it’s his tired broken record of Obama love and corruption.
