The rules have changed dramatically when “duty, honor and country” were the standard by which most of us growing up abided by, no doubt there were also those who abused the conventional norms of what society expected of them.

Throughout our history, the outlaws, the rebels, the nonconformists have always been a faction within our society.

However that distinction between the insurgent and the law-abiding are continually blurred within our society today, we now witness wholesale malfeasance and criminality within the highest levels of government go unpunished, indeed celebrated in some quarters, while everyday citizens are expected to be law-abiding under the threat of incarceration for committing the exact same infractions.

Not so long ago the willful act of desertion within the military was considered an act of treason punishable by imprisonment. Today that same act of desertion within this new environment of political correctness might actually get the deserter, in this case, former Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl $300,000 in back pay regardless of the fact that brave men died and were maimed, wounded and crippled attempting to find this creep, who simply walked away from his post in Afghanistan.

Rather then being tried by a military court Bergdahl decided to put his faith in the hands of a military judge at Fort Bragg and rather than getting any jail time he actually won the jackpot, thanks to the politically correct judge who apparently felt poor Bowe had suffered enough during his 5-years of captivity by the Taliban, who found the fool wondering the desert.

An Army official told the Army Times: “Based upon the results of trial, the Army is reviewing Sgt. Bergdahl’s pay and allowances, his final pay and allowances will be determined in accordance with Department of Defense policy and Army regulation.”

The punishment received for desertion, a dishonorable discharge, a demotion from sergeant to private, and perhaps $300,000 of taxpayer money…hopefully, those families who lost loved ones and were crippled for life attempting to find this slug, will begin a class action lawsuit for the $300,000 grand.

Do you believe the $300,000 in back pay should be distributed among those who lost their lives and were maimed attempting to find this creep?
