A slight change to the Marine Corps slogan

The Few. The Proud. The Undernourished.
Marines at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan will lose a key daily meal starting Saturday, causing some to forgo a hot breakfast and others to work six-plus hours without refueling on cooked food, according to Marines at the base and Marine Corps officials.
Sorry, jar heads, but those star-studded White House galas don’t pay for themselves.

Seriously, Mr. Commander in Chief, you can deck yourself out in your tuxedo, and Mrs. O can drape herself in one of those costumes that looks like a hand-me-down from King Nebuchadnezzar’s favorite concubine , and you can both hang out with your Hollywood buds in the White House, dining on sumptuous fare, and you can let your troops go hungry, and you can do all this without hanging your head in shame?

Yeah, yeah, I know, it’s a rhetorical question. Still, I thought I’d ask it, just for the record.

The extent of Obo's concern for the Marines:

WH Advisor: Mr. President, the Marines in Afghanistan are being underfed, due to your...I mean, the Republican's sequester. I've run the figures, sir, and for just twice what it would cost to feed the Marines, you could fly to West Point, and give a campaign...I mean...make a plea to the voters...I mean, call out the Republicans again over the sequester.

Obo the Clown: Excellent. Make the plans.

By the way, what's the name of that golf course up there....

Just to add insult to injury, the story said that in place of hot meals prepared by cooks the troops will be provided with MREs. Yummy!

If the government must economize, well and good. Let Obumbler and his family eat MREs. That way we can close down the WH kitchens and fire the cooks and support staff, for a large saving. If it is necessary to hold a banquet for foreign VIPs, it can be catered from outside. And Obumbler must stick to MREs while the guests get steak and lobster.

Not only was the hot breakfast abolished, but the sandwich service is out too.

But it's not just the Marines. The Army has already felt the pinch.

Deborah said... Vets took another punch as furloughs were announced Walter Reed Army hospital and one other VA. My doctor expressed her concern about possibly being furloughed during a visit recently.

The VA should take down their slogan, "Putting veterans first, because we know that the price of freedom is not free."

Yesterday, I received a notice from the VA about a survey. That's a first. Wonder who will see the answers?

1. If 800 calories are sufficient for a growing child, a Marine should thrive splendidly.

2. Let them eat Baconators.
