    Why does the head of Africa Command gotta be black?!

    Seriously though, the president and cabinet members have expense accounts for their duties. Military leaders are allowed to go on vacation but must do so on their own dime like you know, enlisted men and women.

    Because he clearly broke the rules/laws? (assuming it's true)

    I mean fuck this is coming from FOX NEWS,

    I thought you were supposed to be against government waste, why would it be OK because it's the military?

    Well technically the president is in the military as well. If you want to be technical about it. I mean we have to give him respect even though he hasn't served a day in military or has he?

    I am just saying that as military types we are just used to following by example that's all I am trying to say. We aren't always the smartest bunch ya know monkey see, monkey do. Just wondering like why upper leadership gets a break and we don't.

    I guess we haven't fought enough wars to deserve it. That must be it.

    So which is it, the president is in the military or he isn't?

    Wait, I know the answer: if he's Republican he is and if he's a Socialist he isn't.

    Let's try a new approach. Why do you think he should be punished. Take the other side of the argument and see if you can come up with reasons why he should be punished.

    You'll have to ask the president that. Some days he likes the military and some days he basically just throws us under the bus.

    Is bringing family on a government paid trip wrong? No, neither is using military plane to transport them there as long as it doesn't displace the needs of the military.

    I have a feeling though his transgressions are more than a few simple events though.

    He's thrown you under the bus? Where the fuck do you come up with this shit?!

    You ask a lot of questions but you don't try to find the answers yourself and when the answer is presented to you you either ignore it or bring up some other non related comment.

    You are embarrassing yourself. Stop.

    Do you know what leadership means? Forget about it. I know there is no way in HELL you know what it means.


    Leadership is loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, personal courage. So when you take one of these things away from us you are throwing us under the bus.

    The most recent example is with the Navy Seals and the president claiming that he got Bin Laden.
    That is the most jack assed thing that I have probably seen him do.

    This is rather heated. I don't think there'll be any answers to the thread tile question........................
    ...........................Rhetorical question?............ohhhh, right!
    The prez is the 'commander-in-chief' there are privelidges that come with the job as well as the job of the SOD, SECNAV, etc. While a general has more priveliges than say, a colonel or major, they don't have nothing near the perks of the higher-up-mucky-mucks. It's a pecking order thing.

    Also remember, when the President takes his friends/family, the cost is to be paid by the President himself. It's the improper billing that got Kip in hot water. Good General, Bad Accountant. :)

    NPR report on Kip's trips.

    Thanks for the info.

    Bingo!

    He should get reemed a lot more because he just screwed all the rest of the Upper Leadership in the different branches. Now the Federal Government is going to have the military do 2 mountains of paperwork to just get a snickers bar and that is going to trickle down the chain.

    It sucks that he is an Army General if it was the Air Force it would be just like normal business.

    Your last post and your first post in this thread conflict. Should the general be punished? Or do you think he AND the President and Secretary of Defense should be punished?

    I believe, that if there were any breech of protocol and/or proceedure, that the charges should be exacted relative to the magnitude of the breech. The order of things must be upheld in order to
    maintain the machine. Any time you start tweaking or abusing machinery that is running smoothly, negative consequences are bound to effect the operation of said machine.

    Talking points! Yes, I have talking points which come from my brain where all the stuff you are saying is coming straight out your butthole!

    You need to get off your knees and stop sucking you know who's you know what and get half a brain.

    Yes, all the politicians, upper leadership should be taken out in public and flogged.
