So now tricky Dick thinks he has the right to judge what are military families are doing in order to survive from one month to the next?? Personally, I think he and Georgie boy did enough damage to America while they were in office, and Cheney would be wise to keep his nose out of today’s politics. And also, where does he got off even thinking that there is really anyone in America that cares about his opinion?? He was lucky to have a 10% approval rating while he was V.P.
Many of our military families struggle to get by on close to poverty level wages and need SNAP benefits to feed their families. The last thing they need is for Cheney to complain about the fact that they have to use their food stamps to survive. If Cheney is that adamant about the use of food stamps – let him put a suggestion in the ear of his Republican buddies that along with increasing the minimum wage, Congress should increase the pay of our military personnel – at least those at the lower ranks.
I’ll go you one better Independent1. Oh how he put his money where is mouth is. Donate all of his ill gotten gains to the military families that went & fought his senseless disgusting wars while costing so many tens of thousands of people their lives, & while causing grief to millions of others at the same time. And give back the money that the taxpayers paid for his damn heart transplant. That will increase the funds all the more. And no A$$hat Dick, you don’t get to write it off as a donation.
Sounds like a great idea to me!!!
Thank you, Independent1. I bow to thee. But, OMGoodness, sorry for the typos. I am tired. I went back & edited.
I’m glad you added that last line because someone HAS been suggesting military raises.. but mainly for the higher echelon. This is possible because the lower ranks are paid so little and they’ve gone full circle in creating toys of mass destruction thus what to do with those extra entitlements.. Maybe it WAS the Dickhead who suggested it.
What a hypocrite! Dick Cheney has lived off the government his whole life and when he wasn’t in government, he was as CEO or Halliburton using his connections to get fat government contracts. This all from a man who lied to get us into a war in Iraq but as a young man did everything he could to avoid serving himself(five deferments). May he rot in hell.
