Sequestration, oh the humanity:
The Air Force Personal Center Services Directorate (AFPC/SV) is seeking sources for providing the Air Force installations a Fantasy Football Program.
You mean, the government can’t survive on a small cut in the size of their budget increase? We can’t find something more worthy of eliminating than carrier groups and weapons systems? Seriously?
Being the hypocritical, cynical son-of-a-such & such that I am, can’t even take “good” news.
As Obama adjusts his “calculus”, suddenly we are bosom buddies with Israel, and are looking at intervention in Syria. Many, many mis-cues & 70,000 lives later.
WMD in Syria?!! Iran?!!
Watch out as to how many & which wrongs make a right…..now that the prez no longer needs to worry about his base.
Naturally I disagree with your assessment Jim Lucas, and especially I disagree that Obama “no longer needs to worry about his base”. A big part of John McCain’s loss in 2008 was the fact that Bush had lost his base and that alienation was not patched over with McCain/Palin. The damage was too deep.
I think Obama has as much leeway as he will need, but I do not believe he will lose faith with his base. He guards that and cultivates us the way any good leader should. You and other conservatives may not like that, but it is true and it allows him his failures (GITMO, Drones) and even his compromises without losing our support.
Rest assured President Obama’s base is alive and well. While the Republican Party searches for an identity, the “base” is planning for the next election. Winners lead while the losers complain!
#1 89Hoo, Do you think morale is important in our armed services? I guess I wouldn’t know too much about it since I never served. Did you?
6 – No, I’ve never served. And morale IS important. But there are free fantasy football leagues out there – everywhere – and there are plenty of other MWR activities on military posts – athletic facilities, clubs, restaurants, bowling alleys, etc.
OK…..let’s clear the air on some “string-pulling” terms, reverse PC taboo subjects.
Served; people join & are paid, it is a labor market, same as & part of all such markets. There are excellent & not as much so people in all such markets. One does not need to have served to voice an opinion on the military. However, the experience, like any other, is tangible & pertinent.
Morale; it doesn’t come from fantasy leagues. It comes from support facilities and decent pay. Things that I assure you are one helluva let better now than…..oh, 35 years ago.
