ALLL this whilst the tank and bomb builders and Military I.C. is getting paid FINE. JUST WHO was in charge of doing this BS? I want to know who authorized it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess they did not send out notices

But when the military log onto mypay.gov to check their pay status. It already shows up they are receiving 1/2 of what they are suppose to be receiving for the 15th.

Now they are posting this on mypay.gov

***Military Leave and Earnings Statement and Advice of Payment ***

Due to the potential shutdown of the federal government, we have "taken down" all Leave and Earnings Statements (LESes) or "Advice of Pays" for Active Duty Military and Reservists. We will re-post LESes when we receive more information on the shutdown or enacted legislation that authorizes pay beyond April 8. Assuming this authority becomes available, we anticipate paying both active and reserve members their full pay for duty served from April 1-15 on April 15. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Today I read on some

Today I read on some soldier's facebook page the following comment:

"Army pay cut in half. F*** the government!"

My son's post on Facebook

Dear Congress, Last year I mismanaged my funds and this year my spouse and I cannot decide on a budget. Until we have come to a unified decision that fits all of our needs and interests, we will have to shut down our checkbook and will no longer be able to pay our taxes. I'm sure you'll understand. Thank you very much for setting an example we can all follow. Re-post if you agree.

And did you post a reply?

I can comfirm this

My son in the Air force got notice today that his pay on the 15th will be cut in half.

This is just a big game of

This is just a big game of chicken.

If this was a sequel to "Stripes", the troops would all lay down their arms and quit.

Sooo they knew this was

Sooo they knew this was coming????

Exactly what I was thinking

This is just a game...but it is going to backfire.
The guys in my son's unit are blaming Obama.

Maybe

they´ll stop the wars now then. Hardly :(.

Lucky for the President

The troops swore an oath to obey his orders. They really need better union organization. :)

No, don't they swear to

No, don't they swear to uphold the Constitution, not the Prez?

They swore to obey...

the Constitution, not the president. Anyway, the individual's relationship to the military is contractual. They sign a contract. Lack of pay may nullify that contract and provide an exit from the military - and the onus of being the UN's strong arm force...and I sure hope the union remark is facetious...

Assert Your Authority

Oh dear.

Of all the people you DON'T blatantly screw, it's the troops.
Lordy. That's been a rule of thumb for a couple thousand years.

Sen. Charles Schumer addresses the "Stand Up for Women's Health' rally.

(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) vowed yesterday that the provision to defund Planned Parenthood that passed the House earlier this year is “never, never, never going to pass the Senate.”

Schumer made the remarks Thursday on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., at a “Stand Up for Women’s Health” rally sponsored by the National Organization for Women, NARAL and Planned Parenthood.
