All of the extra allowances must be eliminated. Soldiers should be made to pay all of their expenses (food, rent, uniforms, etc.) from base salary, just as it is in the real world. The soldiers should be made to pay 100% of the cost of medical insurance, and co-pays should be doubled from their current rate.
If a soldier chooses off-base housing (and is eligible) he/she should pay for it out of base salary. We, the taxpayers, should not pay their rent. Isn't it enough our taxes pay for barracks? We'd be better off with pup tents.
No soldier should get a tax break, as referenced to in IRS Topic 853-- No amount of money earned overseas by a US soldier should be exempted from taxes.
The taxpayers should not have to pay for burial. If life insurance won't cover it (i.e. war) then the family should pay for it, just as it is in the real world. How is it our fault they chose to die?
someone really needs to enlighten this little tosser in what realy goes on.
i might be a "mere civvy" to some of you hear, but for gods sake, if this is how he is really seeing what the military life is all about he needs, and badly needs taught a lesson. CHOSE TO DIE? i swear my bloody is boiling!
Just watched the video, looks like someone who would be able to tell the difference between a bullet and a clit. He deserve a public beating by all the armed services of the world, not just the US. I'd fcuking join in and I'm only a STAB.
someone who replied to his post did it far more eloquently than i could have ever hoped to have been. finishing with this
I'll leave off with a poem by Charles M. Province that you may not believe in and you'll probably roll your eyes and dismiss it as "brain washing" or propaganda, but the words are true whether you want to believe them or not. IT'S THE SOLDIER, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. IT'S THE SOLDIER, not the poet who has given us the freedom of speech IT'S THE SOLDIER, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate IT'S THE SOLDIER, not the lawyer you has given us the right to a fair trial IT'S THE SOLDIER, who salutes the Flag, who serves under the Flad and whose coffin is draped by the Flag, who allows the protester to burn the Flag.
This guy is with out a doubt the biggest tosser i have ever seen!!! How can he believe that shite?!?

FREE SPEECH!!!! The US Killing Machine does NOT give me this RIGHT
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances".
- However the BILL OF RIGHTS DO - GIVE ME THIS RIGHT - Thanks Founding Fathers
Like Beanz has shown with Charles M Province - it is the soldier who fights and dies to give gimps like this their freedom of speech!!
Can we please invite him to the NAAFI for some constructive critisism
This has been kicking around on the 'net for a couple of months now.
The sad little git even posted his own "death" on his site - allegedly at the hands of some annoyed GI's.
He ended up being interviewed on a US "Talk Show" & made himself look a total tw@t.
