January 19, 2013

Great letter! I always think that humor helps make a point and self-deprecating humor can do that best of all!

One has to remember that Obama is not drinking [spending] on his own dime. If you exspect someone else to pick up the tab [taxpayers] you just keep on buying rounds for all your friends.

You must have (just) recently gotten-out of the Navy.

That sentiment was originally-coined, between 2001 & 2009.

At least drunken sailors spend their own money.

Sailors get paid by the government who took from you Phil as you like to say. It is not their money.

Chuck,"Sailors get paid by the government who took from you Phil as you like to say. It is not their money."

Wrong again. The sailor worked for the money he was paid. He did a service for us and we paid him. I know that you know this and are just being an ***, which might make you feel better in your own childish way, but it adds nothing to the discussion.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong. That expression has been around for decades. I heard it when I was a child. Besides that, your stupid input adds nothing useful to the conversation.

Hi enigma.. by your reasoning, every dollar spent by the federal government is in payment for a product purchased or a service provided is valid. It is good to know that you seemingly support the federal government and the many wonderfully beneficial programs they provide.

It's Congress that spends the money.

Typical liberal thinking. Now Reeder is saying EARNED paychecks mean nothing!!!! Its just money you TAKE from the GOVERNMENT for doing nothing. Oh, I get it. You think all our military are liberals like you.

Now we know Reeder too hates our military....just like his idol Obama.

I don't say it enigma your side does. That sailor is a government employee. The very same government you object to. Who spends money, your money like paying this sailor.
