Yet this administration can send millions to countries like Egypt, give out free cell phones,advertise food stamps to illegals, and the list goes on. Hit the voters where it counts and try to gain liberal votes. Obviously they do not believe in country first, party second.

I am an airplane afficianado to the extreme and will miss the military performances. But I find it hard to believe that the military teams are as big a draw as they are purported to be. However, it does appear to be another "in your face" budget cut to make the average Joe feel the pain. There are other cuts that would do more good and accomplish more. Cuts such as this aren't taking the inflated defense budget seriously.

Oh good lord are there still people who believe that? The free cell phone program started as free landlines for the poor under Reagan. In 2008, it was GWB that allowed the program to issue cell phones. But why let a good conservative lie go to waste?

Maybe Congress should cancel the $1/2B worth of tanks the Military says they don't even want. Then the Military will be able to spend money on national defense. You know, like airshows.

pitythefools***The free cell phone program under Bush in his last year was $80M, now under Obama it is over $2B. No lie.
