Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default US Army faces 'TikTok mutiny' as Gen Z recruits whine about low pay, 'sh***y' food and FITNESS TESTS while on bases in uniform

My takeaway from the article is that the (lack of) discipline problem in the military is way worse than I thought it was.

Deployed soldiers on TicTok? Man, just send the Chinese an invitation, already! Purple hair? Open bitching about officers and NCOs on social media? Damn! Just damn!

This shit is downright subversive treason.

The US Army is facing a TikTok mutiny as Gen Z recruits are taking to social media to whine about low pay, 'sh***y' food and fitness tests.

The brazen posts - by uniformed troops on US bases - represent an audacious challenge to top brass amid a recruitment crisis. The Army fell short of its target by 25 percent last year.

One of the posts by military influencer Anthony Laster slams Army life for having 'No Privacy, The Pay Sucks, Sh***y Food, Disrespectful Leadership, NO SLEEP!' and has been viewed more than 600,000 times.

Laster, from Chicago, has more than a million followers on TikTok and made the public comments in uniform while on mission in the desert. In another post he claimed he spent his whole day watching TikToks while supposedly fighting the Taliban.

It gives a woeful impression of America's fighting forces to potential recruits, which is likely to cause further animosity toward TikTok from critics. Politicians from both sides have concerns about the platform's links with China and accuse it of pushing subversive anti-US propaganda.

I can't imagine what being in the military these days is like. I've heard you can bring your cell phone to boot camp and there are designated "cell phone times". True or not? I don't know, but it wouldn't shock me one bit.

Troops using Chicom tiktok, fags, paying for trans surgeries, public bitching in uniform.

No or shoddy discipline probably because officers and NCO's are afraid their careers may be ruined by some pansies being offended and crying to the social actions office.

This is what liberalism brings to the military machine.

Low pay? I can understand that. Before I got out I sat in a senior NCO briefing where we were being told to brief our young troops on the public assistance (welfare) programs they may qualify for. No one in the military regardless of rank should be paid little enough that they qualified for food stamps, EBT, welfare. That's shameful.

Food? Never had a single meal in uniform that I would call shitty. In fact the majority of it was downright outstanding.

I changed one word. But I saw the same shit in the early 1970s with the ghetto munkeys. Why did I not remain in uniform with the US Army? Bingo!

Every social actions office on every base I was assigned was manned by nothing but minorities and women. White men need not apply. Getting referred to social actions for even the smallest accusation was a career killer. Fucking groids

-My 1968 military pay- $3.65 a day plus $1.66 a day hazard pay.

-The food- 6 straight months of C-Rats their was NO WAY to get us or the Marines anything else in the mountains. 10 days trapped helping the Green Berets with NO FOOD. Plenty of monsoon water. Huey's had more pressing matters.

- U.S Marines Frozen Chosen Korea- Candy saved their lives. -30 F. food froze when air dropped and no way to cook it. Saved by air dropped Tootsie Rolls to the rescue. 1 week they could suck on the frozen Tootsie Rolls and it saved their lives. They came to their reunion every year and every man got a case of Tootsie Rolls.

-Uniforms- When the clothes' started rotting off our bodies from the jungle humidity they TRIED to get us clothing.

-Our NCOs and L.T.s- Stayed right with us and we fully respected them.

I NEVER heard one man complain NEVER.
We still wear our symbols of service proudly. That is not a war story but someone copy it and send it to those whining cunts. Other Vets have worse horror stores.

My dad was at Chosin Reservoir, but he was army, 7th Inf Div. Not sure if he was part of the "Frozen Chosen" battle, but seems to think he was. Weapons specialist, bazooka and Browning 30 cal. Spent 30+ winter days between two fox holes. One to live in with his buddy, the other to shit in.

I recall my first pay in BCT. We, REPORTED FOR PAY, in 1968. Pay was in cash.
There was a strict protocol for getting paid. The finance officer worked out of a big brown valise and was flanked by two armed MPs. There wad a line on the floor, you stayed South of that line period. You had to lean forward to sign a receipt for your cash...after you counted it. Once you turned away from the paymaster...THAT was it...you rode with what you had in your hand. Once a month we were paid. I recall my gross, then, was @$80.00. Then there were deductions taxes, etc.

The chow varied. The brass was on top of that shit and would fuck bad cooks up. I recall watching as an E7 was called in to straighten up the company's mess hall.at Ft Belvoir, Va. The man was an artist he KNEW HIS SHIT and traveled as an OJT instructor/trainer/ trouble shooter/ ass kicker. There were a lot of changes. Best chow I had in four years of service.

It was a different ball game down range and in base camps...as 4th ID has stated. I drew RNA cash for 18 months...and made many trips to CRB to the huge rations depot there. Using a 6x6 truck as a shopping cart and paying in MPC/cash, during check out. Our eats were then palatized onto the aluminum pallets the C130's used at the airbase there and then loaded on a C130. We also purchased an entire palatized stack of cases of beer and cases of booze for our bar. It was an alcoholics wet dream. the nights were long and mostly boring.....except.... when they were suddenly not.

The CO had to bar a couple of NCO's and a couple of spec4's from the bar during normal duty hours. As they were generally fucking up by being goggle eyed during business hours.

RetVet look up the story of the U.S. Army at the Chosen if you like.
Around 3,500 troops 'Army' were stationed to the N.W. on the Reservoir a bit above the Marines. They to were NOT getting resupplied. Nothing.
Some General choppered in and told them the Marines were pulling out you guys follow them. Follow them? Its -30 walk I guess. The N.K.s hit them soon after and they had NO FRiGGING ammo.
Around 3,000 were killed captured or M.I.A.. 500 or so headed south at a fast pace to try to catch up with the Marines. Not to be. I think?? around 300 or so made friendly A.O.s.??
Was the Army at the Chosen? Ask those mens family's. I will bet money not ONE of those guys bitched and complained all in a day work.

ADD: I will try to find you their story.

No sir you will have to look REAL hard to find that the govt. wants that to go away. All you will hear about is 'God bless em' the Marines at the Chosen.
Now I am determined to find the story of those poor souls for yah.

ADD: I sat with Uncle Marv and 3 of his Chosen Marine buddies at his house around the corner here and they never heard about those poor guys.
