There is a petition to allow the military to put their hands in their pockets. If we get 21,000 more signatures in the next 2 weeks we will get a response from the white house.

Yeah, there are bigger issues in life but the little things are important too.

The response you'll get will be in form-letter style, written by a military liason staffer if you are lucky, that says the services handle these matters individually, but thanks for all you do.

Yes, there are bigger issues.

How about a petition to keep the White House's hands out of the military's pocket?

The military doesn't have a pocket. Neither does Obama.

The only pocket that the government dips it's hand into is that of the taxpayer.

I kind of assumed Joe was talking about the military members' individual pockets, not the defense budget. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and also assume you aren't saying we don't count because our paycheck comes from the government...

By 'military" I meant the collective total of servicemen, each of whom is a taxpayer.
And when military benefits are cut back, guess whose pocket is hurt by it.
