One has to laugh, or perhaps cry.
Those little yellow ribbons, like all the flags after 9/11, aren't supporting American
troops, they are supporting CHINESE
because that is where, like 98% of all American flags, those magnets come from.
Those magnets are a fad, like rubic's cube or the hoolahoop, people want to appear supportive, in their SUV's. What they really want to say is
"Support Blood for Oil, gas costs too damn much!"
Your all a bunch of pampered civys, who instead of thanking and kissing our boots like you should be, you have the nerve to spit on vets and
dishonor with your foul lies the very people who gave everything for you.
Show some damn respect!
And its that kind of attitude, from people like you, that pretty much ruins it for all vets
Some people in this society know what a bunch of arrogant scum some people in the military are.
(Abu Ghraib paints a nice picture don't you think?)
Kiss your boots?
With that attitude, I'd sooner dump your bodies in unmarked graves, then piss on it.
Your words dishonor this country and its entire military.
You have to EARN respect, on a one to one basis, its not given to you with BDU's at boot camp, or because your shell shocked, or because you fought
for corporate profits, or because you can clean a mess tent better than the next guy, or because you are amazing joe in the supply room, or you can
shoot civilians best.
is just that, service, it is not a ticket to self righteousness, self importance, and holier than thou personal status.
Talk about whining, dude you just cried a river about your life, and its obvious you have a misplaced sense of entitlement, and I think deep down you
know you are worthless, re-read your crying up there, just begging to be respected.
Ain't gonna happen.
Since you can't respect the people of this country, and their feelings against war
, and you make comments directed AGAINST
without even knowing them, you should maybe go fight for another country, because you treat your fellow countryman as the enemy with your lack of
respect, your sickening lack of humility.
A complete disgrace to the uniform.
Tis rather sad about all those vets on the streets, The treatment they get comming back from wars such as nam ect, up to today, sure doesnt
help these guys mentaly either, they go through hell in combat, and then when they get back to whats suposed to be there home, they are ousted and
shunned by all the anti-war american haters. called baby killers ect, thats gotta be a real mental boost..
Cole, that was the 70's, vietnam.
People don't do that anymore, even if they are against the war, they are not against the soldiers sent into combat.
Most of the time, the problem people have with vets is the alcohol and drug abuse, the attitude Trustnone was spewing above, ie, "you owe me", the
fact that the vet has to miss more work than other people due to either his physical or emotional injuries, as well as many other factors.
The "baby killer" thing is a rare instance these days, saved for people like the Navy pilot I know who said "bomb every last man woman and child,
to a glass parking lot", thats a willing "baby killer", flying with millions of my tax dollars and a homicidal racist attitude and officers
You know any homeless drug addcit can say "help a vet out brother", but really, who is going to believe him?
You can bet, if 150,000 troops from Iraq came home and left the service right now, 125,000 of them would find no jobs, there are currently 7.7 million
unemployed people in the United States.
In American, its what you can do TODAY
not how much of Halliburton's profits you protected in the Gulf yesterday that counts. The landlord,
and the bank, and the collection agency don't want to hear "lick my boots", they will just throw you out on your ass.
The decline from "be all you can be", to "homeless lunatic", is a slippery slimey slope, as you go from "living the American dream", to "living
to survive another day, with no support system".
DeltaChaos could probably go into detail about that, as could I.
I wonder if Delta was "mentally ill", before or after his homelessness.
I know if I spent any more time on the street, i'd be a cannibal or something by now, seriously, the survival instinct is....well, you'll see
