Talking Tuesday

At times, I must stop and ask, "What are we doing?" Is it not the job of our military to protect our land and its people? Are we outsourcing too many jobs, which perhaps should be done by those who take an oath to act as the Nation's guardian of freedom and justice?

I read this snippet in an article this morning:

"What started as a temporary fix in response to the terrorist attacks has turned into a dependency that calls into question whether the federal workforce includes too many people obligated to shareholders rather than the public interest -- and whether the government is still in control of its most sensitive activities. In interviews last week, both Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and CIA Director Leon Panetta said they agreed with such concerns."

Please note...this discussion is open to talk about our military. PLEASE do not debate political issues.

Your turn..........

I am sorry but to discuss the military in regards to the points you just made would necessitate a political viewpoint.

The outsourcing you speak of is at it's roots, is as political as it gets.

My father complained about it 50 plus years ago. He was head budget officer for PACAF. It was bad then. Now it is out of control. And because much of it is "off budget", it does not show up on the line item ledgers.
