Gates Pitches Military Pay Cuts !?
The administration’s attitude towards our military is obvious, as is its idea of compensation reduction. What the administration and our pathetic excuse for a CinC don’t understand is that they are subject to Quinn’s First Law: “Liberalism always produces the opposite result of its stated intent.” Rather than saving money (the Public reason) or weakening the Forces (the Private reason) cutting pay will instead reduce the mercenary component, leaving behind a more rarified and Constitutionally engaged bloc of personel.
