Of what?

The capital building?

The people sitting up there have been spitting in the eye of God and the people that sent them there for decades.  They have defiled everything they have been granted.  They are not worthy of respectful treatment.

congress critters limit the number in the chambers and wear bags on their heads to protect themelves from civid but they are ok with grunts sleeping side by side by the hundreds all over the floor with useless cotton masks on.

Why does congress not care about the health of military members and their families?

Machiavelli had some commentary about States/Rulers that needed to resort to using their military to maintain order/security, and none of the comments shed a good light on the sitting government.

Regardless of the minutiae, these pictures are indicative of a failed State.  The fallout may not be fully realized for years, and we will likely experience much suffering along the way, but the end result is set as surely as the Sun rises.

You're obviously not a veteran if you think those are "posed".  

That looks exactly like the military when they go somewhere and they're sitting around waiting.

They have their protective masks for riot control agents.

They get cell phones in basic now.  They have time out cards for when it gets too tough.  The military has no idea what life in the military is like.

Stress cards had a very brief run, but have become legend.

There won't be time for ammunition if something actually happens.  There is no ammo anywhere near them, I would bet.

This is all a circus act.

If congress was really concerned about being protected, those weapons would have mags in them.

Instead this is congress playing theatrics and jeopardizing the health of military members in the process by keeping them grouped together for a false show of force against the American people.

pathetic.

Why does congress jeopardize the health of grunts but take great caution for their own health.

Why does congress treat military members like shit

Nope. Ask anyone who's been through army bootcamp the last 10 years how they liked their weekend icecream and cell phone calls.

Both my sons went through Army basic in the past 10 years and this was the case for them. Same at their MOS school.

Yeah that’s where I’m at. The whole “fuck it, it’s what servicemembers do” is a great mentality to have when you’re in. It keeps you content with shitty conditions. But now that I’m out, fuck all that. That’s not what I’m ok with them having, and that’s not what I’d be ok with my Joes having either. None of these politicians thought “hey maybe I can help these guys out”? No, they walk right past like they’re some homeless beggar. They’re not in the jungles of Borneo or something. They deserve better, and better is easily attainable. Is it that much to ask of SNCOs and Os to go secure some mats? For that matter, I don’t know why they wouldn’t have just been on a packing list.

I just find it all hilarious that vague threats towards politicians call for thousands of troops armed with carbines (ammunition location aside), but neither you or I are not allowed to go into DC armed with even a pistol to defend the life of me or my family and will be thrown in prison if we do.  

If that isn't a perfect example of how far we have fallen as a Republic I don't know what is.
