Bein as u guys are some of my closest friends.. I'm looking for your insight, you know me for the most part, im in the military and since I've been in, the gov.t has threatened to not pay us active duty members and pensioners, so forth...quite a few times. I've made a decision in the past to stay in, and infact ive been waiting for my application for SpecOps. But im starting to steer away and now I might get out. This whole debt ceiling, and how bad were in debt is really puttin the scare in me, I don't want to get caught up in this shit that our gov.t is stirring up. What do you guys think about this financial crisis that is going on? To keep my benefits my final decision would ultimately go reserve and go to college full time and use my GI bill, and then open my own business up eventually. Can't be hanging on the edge and rely on our gov.t to constantly let me know, "you might not get paid next week" >_> FYI, even if the gov.t does stop paying us active duty members, we still have to work regardless, since were under contract. Which is what really pisses me off. I signed a 6yr, enlistment ends oct 10 2012. One more year left..
