If you have been watching the news, you undoubtedly have learned of the California National Guard recalling sign up bonuses previously paid to service personnel for reenlistment 10 years ago.
I have achieved a fairly advanced age in my life. I now believe I have seen the dumbest, most stupid, most inexcusable behavior of leadership I have ever witnessed. How in the world did someone achieve a position in life whereby they are in position to make such incredibly stupid decisions?
We are getting used to our congress making some really dumb decisions. I now believe the California National Guard have "one-upped" them. They took the the dumb ass trophy away from Congress.
It is my opinion that the one(s) making the decision to file a tax lien on the service personnel's homes to recover reenlistment bonuses, should be tracked down like criminals. I want a name!! I want to send them to jail for 10 years!!
However, I really want the one(s) who signed the employee review that enabled the aforementioned dumb ass to ascend to a position of making dumb decisions. They are the real criminals in this fiasco. They deserve 20 years in prison.
What really blows me away is that President Obama could solve the problem of the service personnel bonus with a simple Executive Order, a method of operation he dearly loves.
It is incumbent upon me and everyone you know to contact their elected representatives and tell them to fix this issue and return the money to the veterans, or they will be removed from office........and they don't get the retirement benefits they were promised.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am a veteran.
