You may have known about the minds of the soldiers of yesteryear but today's soldiers are cut from a different cloth.

It's 2018.


Those serving might be different, but basically what they think are still the same.  The thoughts about military service and complaining is still the same.  At least I've experienced what soldiers feel about assignments like this.  Have you?  Besides, being retired I still have contact with the military

 

There is no doubt that what you ae posting is more of your own thoughts and opinions than that of the military personnel.  Even so, they are in the service by their own choice to do what is required of them.

I have no idea as to who 'Trump the Chump' is just as you have no idea of what goes on in the mind of a soldier.  I do know from much experience that soldiers would complain at most anything. I also know they were not drafted, they volunteered for the military that includes whatever they are directed to do.

We have not heard anything about the Caravan from Trump since election day, and by the news out this evening on TV FOX has not talked about it either. Up to election day it was the biggest threat to our country and all Trump, FOX , right wing enablers were talking about. When asked about what happened to the very serious threat to  the Country the WH said it was part of the plan. Looks like the plan was to use the Caravan to get reb. far right to vote the way they were told, and try and scare the rest of the people. The plan did not work so now Trump, FOX have dropped it. That proves what all thinking people said Trump was trying to make a fool out of all voters. Well only his enablers fell for it.

Now the sad part. The military was used as part of this political stunt, and that is the first time in our history a President has used the military for political purposes. The stunt is over but the military are still sitting on the border doing nothing. They are ripped away from their families for the holidays, loosing needed training for their next deployment to a war zone. The Sec. of Defence was with them today. He said they will not come in contact with any border crossers, and the MP will be used only with the troops. He tried to cheer them up. ONCE AGAIN TRUMP DISHONORS THE MILITARY BY HIS MISUSE OF THEM. For shame on all the far right who have pushed this stupidity of sending them as they have done the same thing. They dishonor our military. This operation is costing all of us 200 million extra per the Defence Dept. today. There should be a tax on every Trump supporter to pay that bill. For shame on Trump, and his enablers. I would not expect to here any answers from the far right who have not served in the Military since they would not understand how the military feel.

They are trained to do what they are directed to.  In this case to assist in maintaining the integrity of our borders.  Besides the fires in California isn't a topic of this thread.  Further  the state of California has the authority to call up their National Guard if necessary.

 


CA. is looking at moving its National Guard Troops from the border to fie fighting. That way they will be doing something useful.

It's only a laugh to those who ignore reality, facts, and the truth. The numbers I posted came from Social Security.

 

Most illegals pay no taxes at all and also pay no SS. If you have such facts from SS, why not post the link? Illegal aliens are a drain on the federal government, drain on the local taxpayer who is funding their education, health benefits (when they show up in ERs), and crime increases.


I just love it when Conservatives make stuff up.  

 

Of the 8 million undocumented in the workforce, almost half pay taxes even though they could get away with not doing so.  Such a refreshing change compared to the wealthy citizens in our country.

Caravan of Thousands Is Pushing Again Toward the U.S. Border

The Institute of Taxation and Economic Policy, a Washington, DC, think tank, estimates about half of undocumented workers in the United States file income tax returns. The most recent IRS data, from 2015, shows that the agency received 4.4 million income tax returns from workers who don’t have Social Security numbers, which includes a large number of undocumented immigrants. That year, they paid $23.6 billion in income taxes.

 

Those undocumented workers paid taxes for benefits they can’t even use, like Social Security and Medicare. They also aren’t eligible for benefits like the earned income tax credit. But the IRS still expects unauthorized immigrants to file their taxes, and many of them do so.
