An emotional Colonel Oliver North (Ret.) spoke out against the United States government denying death benefits to families of fallen soldiers and blaming it on the shutdown.
Thankfully, generous Americans are stepping in to ensure that family members can meet their loved ones’ remains.
“This isn’t about the government shutdown,” Col. North said. “It’s about whether the commander in chief gives a damn about the morale of our troops. That’s what it really comes down to. […] It does not take an act of Congress to authorize this travel. […] All it takes is a commander in chief with a conscience.”

Col. North will always have my respect as he is a true patriot and he supports the military personnel 100%. He is absolutely correct on this one and the video is worth watching. The problem is that we do not have a true commander-in-chief; we have an anti-American, as Diane has stated and he has no regard for the military.
It further makes me sick to my stomach (truly not just figuratively) when Michelle and Jill Biden's TV ad comes on asking people to support our military families; right, then talk to your husbands and get them off their #@##'s and doing something to rectify this situation. Or, we can take them at their word and do what has to be done to help our military families; we can demand that they both resign immediately. Maybe that is what should happen; maybe the people of this Country should stand up and demand the resignations of Obama, Biden and the complete Administration immediately.
Linda, my sentiments exactly. I consider all of them traitors. All four of them have proven to be totally worthless in every sense of the word.
