Obama Eliminates Breakfast for US Troops in Afghanistan, Stuffs Own Face


If only American soldiers in Afghanistan were unemployed Democratic voters in Chicago, then they might be getting three square meals a day from the government.

But the military is the one place that Obama feels comfortable slashing expenses. While spending at an uncontrollable rate unseen since the last days of the Roman Empire in every other area, Obama has been cutting “waste” in the military like 20,000 Marines, Tricare healthcare for veterans and breakfast for soldiers serving in areas where he would only venture accompanied by heavy firepower.

Warren Buffett and other crony capitalists can pig out on Obama’s trillion dollar deficits. As for the troops. Let them ear MRE’s.

The Army has stopped serving cooked breakfasts to some of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with cereal, breakfast bars and other foods.

The Army told the Washington Guardian the current cutbacks began Jan. 1, and affect about 2,700 soldiers deployed in forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan.

The Washington Guardian reported earlier this month that the current budget crisis in Congress prompted Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to write a memo order preparations for sweeping budget cuts across all military programs to begin as early as next month.

Officials stressed other comforts at the forward operating bases may also soon be reduced, such as laundry and recreation, as officials look for other ways to reduce the American footprint in advance of departing the country.

They said the meal cutbacks are currently affecting forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan and not affecting the main American bases in Kabul and Kandahar.

Exit questions. How many cooked breakfasts for soldiers would Obama’s 20 million dollar Hawaii vacations and the 1.4 billion that his clan’s non-stop partying buy?

While American soldiers go hungry, here is what Obama and his corrupt cronies had for their inaugural lunch.

First Course: Steamed Lobster with New England Clam Chowder Sauce, Sautéed Spinach, Sweet Potato Hay
Second Course: Hickory-Grilled Bison with Red Potato Horseradish Cake, Butternut Squash Purée, Baby Golden Beets and Green Beans, Strawberry Preserve and Red Cabbage
Third Course: Hudson Valley Apple Pie with Sour Cream Ice Cream, Artisan Cheeses
Wines: Tierce Finger Lakes Dry Riesling (2010), Korbel Natural, Special Inaugural Cuvée California Champagne, Bedell Cellars Merlot (2009)

Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were humanitarian social workers compare to Barack and Michelle Obama.

UPDATE: Here are some comments by current and former service members

Gee

How outrageous – when I was in the US Army – it was a requirement that they provide 3 hot meals a day unless in field. Failure to provide that was grounds for an immediate honorable discharge.

I’m over here in Afghanistan right now and it’s no “crock”. I’m on Bagram and they just stopped hot breakfasts here as of 1 Feb. This isn’t about winning or losing it’s about what the current President is doing against the country he is supposed to support.

Ar’nun

I’m glad I got out when I did. There were two things in Afghanastan worth looking forward to. Going Home, and hot meals. Now the hot meals were not exactly gourmet, but they got you through the day.

Coach

When I ran a mess hall it was stressed to us to do the very best job possible because meals are part of a soliders pay. This is a violation of soliders’ rights. Where is Congress on this?

First off as a vet, I will tell you flat out no one serving active duty is going hungry. That accusation is just ridiculous in its face. Second I think it is really nasty that the government has cut back on giving active duty troops a warm breakfast but military is typically one disappointment after another. Be that disappointment about available duty stations, watch rotations, time allowed for liberty or just a phone call home, and so on. So as a veteran, I deeply sympathize but this is really just one more disappointment from bureaucrats, republican or democrats, who have no idea what it’s like to be deployed. This is however an awesome opportunity for all those who say they support the troops, to put their money where their mouth is by sending care packages. Here are a few trustworthy links:

    The irony, is that I was told when I was serving, is that MRE's cost more than a hot, catered meal.

    • Madeleine Morrison

      It has nothing to do with cost. He is a terrorist and hates America because of his WT mama and a daddy who didn’t want him and who hated America as he does. He had a homosexual affair with an “intellectual” who badly damaged him…yes, he is damaged. I cannot understand how he could have let those military be sodomized, tortured and murdered in the presence of their families by the half human/half monster muslims who were able to overtake them because the muslim occupying the White House ignored their pleas for help for weeks preceding the outrage…then to top it off, he hid behind Hillary and LET A WOMAN TAKE THE BLAME FOR WHAT HE DID…what a sexual deviant sick puppy…he is definitely NOT A MAN….remembering that dress that showed what appeared to be male genitals on Michelle, we have to believe there is something really really wrong going on with Obama…his mama, his mentor really screwed this man up…but you elected him…twice..once after Benghazi..why? Why are the demonrats not upset about the mistreatment of the soldiers? He is not worthy to lick their feet.

    to treat our american soldiers and sailors airforce and army like dogs iswhat obama is all about . he woud if gven the oppertunity piss on any military man or woman. he ‘thinks guns are ooooo so bad for his 5 year old mind. I’v been carrying a gun isnce iwa eleven yers old. never thougt of killing anyone. we just were raised tho lthink about the conseqences and knew the potential a weapn had. go ahead and treat the men like dogs and wait untill its time jfor payback!!

  • Gene

    For Obama to take a one day trip to Vegas to try to usurp the 2nd Amendment cost around $2Million. You could feed all the troops in Afghanistan for 6 months on that.

  • tanksoldier

    We deride the Left for their emotional rather than rational thinking… then a "story" (and that's what it is, a story) like this gets posted and people are running around with their hair on fire on OUR side.

    It ISN'T a budget issue. They are spending MORE MONEY to feed them MREs and T-rats. It is a function of how military logistics works.

    CONTRACTS for fresh food have to be given. If you don't know or aren't going to be there in a month, a contract for eggs or chicken or whatever is stupid.

    The logistics of moving, maintaining and preparing regular food are enormous. When drawing down troop levels you loose logistic support first, because those units take the longest to tear down and move and have high personnel counts for relatively low combat utility.

    It takes far more cooks, truck drivers and paper pushers to get eggs and suchlike to the troops than it does to get them MREs. Fewer boots on the ground = less logistical support. That's why the first troops in eat MREs, and the last troops out eat MREs.

    If you're trying to reduce force levels while maintaining combat strength, you send home the cooks.

    It isn't rocket science.

    BO has done plenty to be upset about. This is just stupid. It's not like he was sitting in the Oval Office one day and decided to start feeding troops MREs instead of SoS. HE almost certainly wasn't even consulted.

    • Sharon

      It didn’t seem too hard to do it before. All of a sudden, it’s too much? Those men are out there risking their lives for what? Obama and his family to spend money that belongs to us on fancy vacations? He needs to be relieved of his “duties”, or should I say of his campaigning. A third term (and don’t think it won’t happen) is going to finish us off if this one doesn’t. Your logic, tanksoldier, isn’t logical.

    • Rednek

      Back in the early 50's when we needed fresh food we got it when we could and from where we could. I don't remember having to sign any long term contracts. We loaded and transported it ourselves. Things sure must be different now.

  • Questionman

    You pay attention you stupid racist!

    I’m getting sick and tired of you racists demeaning the President because he’s black! He is NOT a communist, nor a socalist, nor an Anti-American! Read a damn dictionary! Is Barack Obama a Marxist?

    No, Barack Obama is a liberal with slight libertarian and authoritarian traits, probably a smidgen more authoritarian.

    Obama has committed no impeachable offenses. He CAN’T BE IMPEACHED!!!

    This guy’s idiocy should be an impeachable offense.

    Is Barack Obama a “urusper”?

    I believe you mean usurper, but the answer to that question is a big NO.

    Is Barack Obama a fraud?

    No, there was some confusion about his birth certificate and conservatives exploited that by saying he was a foreigner, but he is indeed a natural born citizen, he is what he says he is.

    Is Barack Obama’s birth certificate a fraud?

    No it is not.

    Is Barack Obama a Muslim?

    I think he holds Islam close to his heart just as he holds Christianity there as well. His father was Muslim, and I think he respects and accepts that religion. You have to remember, Islam is a peaceful religion, but extremists take their holy book out of context to justify their barbarianism.

    Is Barack Obama a homosexual?

    I think the fact that he is obviously attracted to his wife and has 2 daughters speaks otherwise.

    Evidently this is just another myth from the Conservative Disinformation Network. CLOSING bases are shutting down hot breakfast service due to logistical reasons, not due to the Obama administration budget cuts, or even less preposterously due to Obama eliminating any cooked breakfasts, as falsely claimed

    There is no truth to the Internet myth that Washington budget cuts have taken away breakfast for service members in Afghanistan, Defense Department officials said.

    You are a pathetic racist! That’s what Obama Derangement Syndrome will do to a nitwit! You, sir, are a bigger disgrace because you apparently couldn’t be bothered to do a simple Google search on the issue that is brought up by a notoriously inaccurate scandal rag.

    Claiming Obama is a king or dictator when he was elected twice by more than 51% of popular vote is not credible

    What you really mean is that if we do not agree at things through evangelical conservative Right wing bobblehead eyes there is no conversation just as long as you can manipulate, coerce and control the rights of people. you people are happy with eating scraps from the table of the wealthy, cleaning after them at less then minimum wage, living on your knees because you think it is the future. If that is the future you plan for your children then you are the low life pathetic scum bag you profess others to be. You, in reality, are no better than a worthless parasitic creature who’s nature is to eat other people’s filth! Liberals have also died for this great country and you thinking that only right wing bobble heads have given the ultimate sacrifice is as unfounded as the liberties you are denying to any American. To say that liberals are the only people living in that special place the bible speaks of is total proof of your denial of anything other white. It is not impossible for you to stoop because you are living there with the ranting and raving that you exemplify in your everyday life. I truly feel bad for your children because they will ultimately bear the sins of a MORON!

    You are a dipstick retard. You’re about as “American” as a Iran’s President A-mad-nut-job. He rants and raves like a loose wheel against Obama, just like you.

    You are a pathetic racist! Obama is our legally elected Pres…twice! DEAL WITH IT!

    • JAFO

      JAFO – just another fu@kin observer. Just so you know. I could careless what color his skin is. A man is to be judged by his actions. For a president to state “Those that have nothing to hide have nothing to fear”. Then go and secure all his records to prevent public examination of same makes him a liar. He, signs a presidential order NDAA that violates the Constitution on so many levels is worth impeachment. He uses drones against a sovereign nation – Pakistan to kill foreign citizens with a declaration of war – crimes against humanity – should stand before a world court. Bengazie, fast and furious, undeclared war on Lyiba and bank bailouts not to mention the debt. This man – Barry Soranto has breeched and violated both the US Constitution and the BOR and international law so many times any rational observer can see what he is. Like I said I judge men on their actions. You defend him because he is black …. So in reality who is the racist?

      Read what Jim said again. He didn’t misspell any words, and NO ONE has mentioned Obama’s color, which is half and half. Everything on the left is racist if it doesn’t fit into their little cubby-holes. Stop accusing everyone of being racist. It’s a stupid, elementary-school thing to do, unless that’s where you go to school. You are so condescending to everyone here, and I’m sick of you leftists being racists. I know people from Kenya who are white. They are not nice people. I don’t like them or what they stand for. Does that make ME a racist?

  • I want to know

    I want to know why Americans continue to buy that our President has our best interests at heart. The only thing that should be stopped is the President’s and his family’s extravagant lifestyle on the taxpayers’ dime. Our military deserves the lobsters that were served at the Inaugural lunch and a Chief who believes in them and their work. He’s not looking at term limits and he’s probably looking at ruining the country until he decides to step down. The media is playing his game and telling us only what they are “allowed” to tell us. This is enough and somehow, Americans need to stop this nonsense!

  • AMMO DOG

    I have to agree with Chris S. My Army job is Ammo Supply. I cannot conduct my job state-side because civilian contracts (which have been turned into DOD civilians) work in my Ammo Yard (ASP). They are also overseas. I make roughly $22,500 a year while these guys make $100,000. So the gov't is paying TWO people a total of $122,500 when they could be paying ONLY ONE the bare minimum of $22,500. Let me EARN my money (instead of sitting around for it) AND SERVE MY COUNTRY!!!

    P.S. This Conservative does not use feelings like the dems do (or try to say we do). I use LOGIC.

    Those of you who don't think this is happening are freaking retarded. I am a Iraq war veteran and this is not only happening overseas, but it happens stateside too.

You all were warned this was going to happen and that this man did not have the military's support and yet you still voted him into office. Way to show your appreciation to your military folks and screw us over. If you all were smart, you would get him out NOW before it's too late and we have nothing left to save.

  • guest

    I forwarded this article to a US Army Major. Following is his reply. Spend your outrage on something real, like the administration's war on the Second Ammendment.

    "Total bullsh!t like most of the information on the internet. While there
    are some very remote bases in afghanistan that may only have one hot meal a
    day this is totally normal and troops rotate in and out. The army has its
    own cooks and mobile kitchens….if we wanted a hot meal CDRs could provide
    it.

    I was on 5 different bases while I was in Afghanistan and everyone of them
    had three hot meals a day….even the base with only about 15
    Soldiers….breakfast everywhere had omelets made to order, biscuits and
    gravy, plenty of fresh fruit, plenty of hot and cold drinks, energy bars and
    snacks for the afternoon if you were not going to be back for lunch,
    ect…… "

    I serve in the US military and I am offended by this article. We still receive all our meals and always will. Blaming a president who does not control the budget (that would be congress fyi) will accomplish nothing. I joined the military not to eat the best food, or live the life of royalty, but to serve my country and protect the freedom of the people back home. I support my Commander in Chief, who is actively trying to bring all the troops home from Afghanistan.

  • independent voter

    I do not like obama at al,l but I do not have to make up stuff about him. There is plenty of things not to like him about. The article is try to slip pass everybody that they are not getting COOKED breakfast , and try to have you think it's no breakfast at all . and again by saying they are asking people to send them cereal and breakfast bars . which are also not COOKED food. the comment from A.M. 4 days ago also expends it from someone who is out there. You have to ask yourself, with so mush real things to complain about Obama why write this crap. Is it really about obama or about looking for a reason to make the democrats look bad.

  • April E.

    This is ridiculous! If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why in the world would we NOT provide it for our soldiers? Seriously, Obama should start skipping breakfast (as well as his Hawaii vacations) if he's going to take it from our soldiers who are working HARD doing PHYSICAL work every single day. I'd like to see Obama wear the gear the military wear all day long.

  • Don M

    A.M. Replied four days ago:
    Another thing, the decision to chop breakfast didn't come from Obama. It came from the ARMY ground commander of the Paktika province. Carry on. My question is: Did the ARMY ground commander of the Paktika province cut his own breakfast?

  • Warrant Officer … Vietnam

    All I can think about are the stories I have heard from my Dad, a WWII and Korea Veteran and my brother, a Vietnam Veteran. It may not be as good as it was with your meals but you have it a lot better than military from any other wars. That doesn't diminish your service, I just think it should give you something to think about.

  • patricia

    There is no truth to the Internet myth that Washington budget cuts have taken away breakfast for service members in Afghanistan, Defense Department officials said.
    Americans serving in Afghanistan can have up to four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight meal, if one is needed.
    The Internet myth’s genesis came from a few forward operating bases in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktika province that are closing or being turned over to Afghan security forces. Instead of a hot, prepared breakfast, service members at those bases receive packaged meals known as “meals, ready-to-eat,” or MREs. This streamlines the logistics for these closing bases, officials explained.
    Snopes.com — a website that looks into Internet myths — rates this tale as “partly true.” The original email that sparked the controversy vastly overstated the extent of the “MRE for breakfast” policy. The original email also said the reason for the policy was because of DOD budget cuts. This is not true, defense officials said.
    The vast majority of service members in Afghanistan are receiving a hot breakfast, officials emphasized.

      Why don’t you try telling that to my son! He gets breakfast and dinner ONLY Tuesday- Sunday, most of the time it is UNCOOKED. On Mondays, he doesn’t even get breakfast!!!

    I separated the pertinent lines here. They are NOT going without food, period. And, if they are complaining about not getting HOT food at breakfast, then asking for CEREAL and BREAKFAST BARS from home is not going to remedy the situation.

  • rose

    okay, I've red this article, and I can say I'm deeply ashamed of Obama for doing this. Does it mean that I believe hes a awful person, no. Do I agree with all his politics, no. But what I can say is after reading the above comments, I'm more ashamed in the people. seeing comments about losing faith in Liberals and just hate. Guess what the government not going to change, every one in this government are lairs! Instead of attacking others whether there republican or Democratic, radical or Liberals. We the people should be fighting for our country that falling due to the actions of the higher ups. instead of worrying about political parties. when individuals need someone to blame they look at the people who oppose their views to place blame. its sad to see that a once Beautiful Country who's morals were the highest in the world, based of helping and being the land of opportunity, fell into hatred and darkness, cause while people are blaming other Americans for what party they are in, and the government feeding into that idea, we the people are blind to what they are doing. Cause when a country's people are divided, the country is left with disgusting and dark charters running a mess of the governments while we fights with each other, George Washington didn't want political parties cause he said they would be our downfall, he couldn't be more right.

  • Tacw0lf

    Ok so that does suck for the troops out there..not going to lie. But, I will say that when the base we were at in Iraq started its draw down, there were no cooked meals..only MRE's for every meal for 4 months. The thing is, is that there is no right place to make cut backs. No matter where something is cut, someone will bitch and moan about it about it and how bad it is that something was taken from them. The Marines just had their tuition assistance cut as a result of the cut backs that are going on government wide. I will say that the fact that breakfast is cut for the troops in Afghanistan is a hardship, but was there thought given to the soldiers that are at FOB's (Forward Operating Bases) that have had no hot food for any meal? There is still constant fighting going on and we are still at war (no matter the public opinion, the world still believes we are). Hardships are going to be hard for a reason, this is how war's are. At least bullets aren’t being discontinued, that would truly be a tragedy.

  • Anomaly Jane

    Yes at this point in the USA, the budget must be cut….but not from school lunches, or much needed social services that help the masses barely slide by on a day to day basis. Oh, & not by slashing social security to the bone…or adding more taxes to gasoline & food!!! The last thing that should not be cut is a good hot breakfast for 'OUR' troops (no matter what we think or believe about us fascism in the world). To maintain good health OUR GUYS need a good breakfast! It is the most important meal of the day!!!!! I do not like the fact that our troops ARE in the middle east….no do I like it that 'The Wealthy Elitists' & their 'entourage' of Politicos, Corporate raiders, Big Pharma/Big Agro, & other alphabet agencies basically the 1% do not budget thenselves. I really am ashamed of a 'government' that slashes programs that assist those that need assistance….while gorging themselves with the best of everything. Our Troops no matter where they may be stationed should be thought of as vital resources, & in every way possible the government should do what it takes to maintain healthy troops. Like I said before 'our troops' vitally need a good breakfast that will give them the health & stamina to kill, interrogate, torture, lob depleted uranium bombs, shakedown & abuse the defenseless old people, mothers & children in the war zones.
    I say cutback the defense contractors…the guns & tanks & Troops. That will help get us out of their countries so the People can heal & begin to start working on their 'infrastructure' so that they might also live in peace & afford to eat 'breakfast', buy books, send their children to school, medical facilities for those who are suffering Trauma & MPD from having had to live with the horror they experienced every day, & will carry the emotional & mental scars for the rest of their relatively short lives due to the tons of depleted uranium they live in and breathe. Hey!!! I think it would be a better idea to provide a good hot breakfast to every human being on the planet. It would cost less, waaaay less than the 'wars' & it would be very good PR for the USA. Yeah THE BREAKFAST PEACE PROJECT would go a long way to repair the USA's public image in the world! We could begin by taxing the' ultra rich with those taxes going to get rid of world hunger, oppression, weapons stockpiling, camps like Guantanamo, health care for the poor, money to institute programs about preventative health care & sex education, adressing men's & women's issues equally so that no woman has to be kept in bondage, behind closed doors, or behind a burkha….with everyone able to go to school & become a contributing part of their communities.

I really am ashamed of a 'government' that slashes programs that assist those that need assistance….while gorging themselves with the best of everything. Our Troops no matter where they may be stationed should be thought of as vital resources, & in every way possible the government should do what it takes to maintain healthy troops. Like I said before 'our troops' vitally need a good breakfast that will give them the health & stamina to kill, interrogate, torture, lob depleted uranium bombs, shakedown & abuse the defenseless old people, mothers & children in the war zones.

    As one of the many family members sending groceries to help feed breakfast to forces in remote Afghanistan, I have an idea: Since we are spending money to provide what the government/military should be providing, why not allow us to claim the costs as a fed. income tax deduction? "We the People" want to look after those who look after us, but we ARE doing the job of the government.

    our whole community will be thankful to you.

    I’m appalled at the way everyone is acting on here. I too am in the military and I for one refuse to go along with this bashing of our president. You all know as well as I do, you are not being made to go hungry! Seriously, how much is enough for you people? How much do you think is owed you for being in the military, the world? Well, I am here to tell you you won’t get it! You are owed nothing. You serve in the military because you love this great country of ours. Not because you get free health care, or instant pension upon exiting the military when everyone in the private sector has to wait till they are 65. Not for the seriously reduced interest rate on housing, or credit cards too because your military. Lots of people don’t know that, that most of you only pay 4-5 percent on your credit cards when everyone else is up at 18% or more.
    I am disgusted because a lot of republicans are right. The nation, and a lot of it’s military, have become addicted to entitlements. The entitlements have to end, and they have to end right now!

  • Thomas Allen

    Hey Mark, let entitlements end in Washington first! The military deserves them before the crooks in Washington does. Also, he is not our President until he proves that he qualifies for it, and that does not mean hiding all of his records and birth certificate! We’ve never had a President to do that, ever, ever, ever!

  • STONE

    YOU CAN THANK THE REPUBLICANS TOO. THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT SPEND MILLIONS ON TRYING TO STONE WALL OBAMA'S ISSUES AT EVERY TURN.37 TIMES THEY TRIED TO REPEAL OBAMA CARE.REMEMBER THE WHOLE,"SEQUESTER DEAL", IN ORDER TO GET ANYTHING MOVING THE FORCED HIM TO MAKE SERIOUS CUTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, INCLUDING FOOD PROGRAMS THAT HELP STRUGGLING FAMILIES,HIT BUY THE HARSH ECONOMY.WE WILL BE PAYING FOR THE WAR IN IRAQ FOR DECADE,INSTEAD OF ENJOYING PROSPERITY,WITH A SURPLUS BUDGET WE HAD WITH PRESIDENT CLINTON.DON'T FORGET TO THANK BUSH FOR THAT.IF YOU WANT TO FIGHT FOR A GOOD CAUSE, INVADE CHINA AND GET SOME OF THOSE U.S. JOBS BACK.

  • Kim

    I would Blame Obamer for this Like we ALL blame him for EVERYTHING….BUT I am a strong enough American to say I help let this happen..We ALL allow the government to do what they want while we sit in our cozy corners and tap out our bitching and anger on our computers… well I plan on doing something about it! Nothing can or will ever be done about this if WE as in US Americans , don't stand up and do something about it!!!! It's the very least we can do ..even if it's simply gathering a million dam beagles and sending them over…(just and example not need to comment) Meanwhile in prison you get 3 hots and a cot..oh plus cable..oh yeah and job training..Oh yeah and job placement..Humm what does a soldier receive?

    typo – “Let them EAR MRE’s”

  • Average gal

    Time for a new president…… All Obama cares about is himself. What kind of president takes away food from are own people and defends are country. Screw Obama.

  • Geez O’Pete

    The POTUS,even as a candidate,spent millions of dollars making sure that no information about his past got out. He is only letting us see/hear what HE wants us to know. Why? What did he do during his time at Occidental,Columbia and Harvard? Did he receive aid as a foreign student this is why he wants all of his records suppressed? Why does he have no fewer than 16 different Social Security numbers and possibly as many as 80 plus?

    If he has this towering intellect that everyone (in the press) says that he is,why can we not read what he wrote in college and graduate school? No other candidate or elected official has been given this sort of carte blanche.

    These are serious questions that still deserve answers.

  • Fast Ed

    NOT True!!!

    Meals Have Been Replaced With MRE's While Trying To Bug Out Of There!!!

    What really infuriates me is when a website such as this one lies about the military to make a political point. This is not true. What is going on is normal routine for leaving the area. Sadly these websites who claim to love our country and our military think nothing of using them for their own purposes. Sadder still our the people who don’t do their own research and just jump on board with the lies. If you really care about our military then you won’t pass along these lies.

    • Lisa Bailey

      Lies? Tell that to my son in Kandahar! He gets two meals, breakfast and dinner Tuesday- Sunday, most of the time it is UNCOOKED. On Mondays, just ONE, he doesn’t even get breakfast!!!

  • wegirl65

    Okay, if the right wing Nazis would give in and allow the Government to raise taxes on people who make more than $250K (not me, and probably not most of you), we wouldn't have to cut anything you stupid idiots.

  • jw

    why should our troops only getting two meals a day and sometimes one ,here they are fighting for us and our country and we treat them like this even a cold meal is better than none how can they keep their strength up we even feed the people in jail three meals a day but our troops two whats wrong with this picture?

    • Cranky

      They are getting 3 meals a day, It’s just that 1 meal is an MRE, which comes with a meal heater. No-one is going hungry.

      • manmadeclimatechangeisbs

        Not the point Cranky. While I do enjoy MREs, there is no reason to cut anything from soldiers because of budget while the fuhrer is eating lobster and taking vacations to Hawaii. This man has to go!

    • CharlesDiNatale

      After seeing what the Obama’s 5 course vacation meals were, on our money,, and The Administration has yet again betrayed our Military Soldiers.. and Veterans everywhere.. Just the thought of ‘All’ Betrayals, being thrown under the bus,, loosing the little we do have,, and seeing it all pissed away so quickly.. Makes you wonder where we went wrong.. How we let things get to this point.. And no one is backing us up.. What will it take to bring it all back or get it all back..?? Wake-up people,, America.. We are loosing.. Our Military Oath means a hell-of-a-lot more than our politicians oath.. We must help our brothers-in-arms that are not here, show our undying support,, And then ”defend our country against ‘all’ foreign and ‘domestic’.,,…

  • Jennifer

    I really think its crazy there is no excuse for what is going hear our soldiers need food there is no if or but about it they have the most hard working jobs ever and I think it’s only rite that the government at lease feed them I mean come on we must work together for this this is my fair at all to them because if the government need soldiers they need food to have power to do there job this must change ASAP

  • Zenna

    This is sad & insane to know our president is this screwed up!!!!!! Thank You troops for doing what you do for our country!!!!!

  • Former US ARMY SGT

    obama needs to go to war for a month to see how hard it, if hes not going to feed the troops then bring them the fuck home and fuck Iraq and Afghanistan.

    • Debbie Tracey-Young

      Agreed! Or should I say its just greed!

    • Ben Rios

      Make it mandatory that the sons and daughters of all in government, including the president, serve in the military. Then we can see if they cut any benefits. This administration has had the lowest contempt fo our active military and veterans.

  • clark

    This is BS a flat out right lie again by the Propaganda machine we know as the GOP…….We get three a meals day same as always..lies lies and more !!@#$%^& lies!!

    • AudioFreq

      Clark, ‘ol buddy…in what country are you stationed? Are you a person who deals with physical front-line hardship or are you a REMF? Or, as I suspect, are you at home in Mom’s basement? Try beating your feet against the ground and your body against the weather. See if you wouldn’t like a little warm chow. If the excesses of the current government establishment could be contained, then possibly the men and women suffering privation could be afforded the luxury of decent food when possible. This is a volunteer force. Would you rather be forced to volunteer? STFU!!

    • Ben Rios

      And who might you be? What country’s military do you serve? Is this really barry using a fake name?
