This slogan means people need to support what our troops are doing. So how does one do that. Lean out the window and yell 'I support you troops?'
Of course, the only who doesnt really have to support them are the same people who put them there, the govt. They pay our guys very little , oh but they do get danger pay...woot!
Then when they get permanently injured, or suffer extreme distress, or heaven forbid, killed, the govt pretty much abandons them.
The govt pays a death benefit (while in fighting) of $260G's. Gosh, govt, thanks for that. Remind me again what your pension is? You know, the one thats not funded by anything?
Oh yeah, lets see.....
Gilles Duceppe $145,000
Stephen Harper (from 2015 eligible) $224,000......per year
So, Yes ...support the troops , but for heavens sake, please dont look into our pensions. Hell the Reformers all balked at collecting them and said no way.....and of course now they are collecting.
Funny, I cant fathom why people think politicians are slimy
