Naw...My Vote Doesn’t Count...or Why I Am A Stupid, Lazy Loser

RKB Memoir Cover

By Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, USAR (Ret.)
From the December, 2014 issue of SOF

On how many occasions, come election time, do you hear gunnies come up with some inane excuse as to why they are not going to vote? “Oh, my vote doesn't count,” they snivel. “The politicians will do whatever they damn please. A pox on both houses.” Well, SOFers, if that was the case, why do all the left-wing, bottom feeders swarm to the ballot box? Because they know that voting Democratic will ensure they get their share of slop at the public trough. Or I should say, filtching dollars out of your and my wallet?

Our troops will follow their orders to minimize risk to Americans and Italians.

By Harold Hutchison

Think that defense cuts don’t get troops killed? You might want to re-think those conclusions in light of the investigation stemming from the worst blue-on-blue incident in Operation Enduring Freedom, when a B-1B Lancer dropped bombs on a friendly position.

According to a report by the Washington Times, the deaths of five Soldiers in a 9 June “friendly fire” incident were caused by an inability of the Special Forces unit to properly train prior to deploying to Afghanistan due to “sequestration” – automatic spending cuts that hit the defense budget and entitlement spending. Special Forces units usually try to train for at least three weeks in terrain in the United States that resembles that in Afghanistan, but the Operational Detachment Alphas had those training deployments cancelled and had to make do with training at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.
