Oh good hell.
Personnel in the Military work for a salary.
Welfare precipitants do not.
There is the difference. Nice try though.

There are differences, yes. But if taxpayers pulled all money from military, what would an enlistee do?? So, just like a welfare recipient, enlistees need taxpayers' help. So it is ironic.edit on 12/6/2012 by yadda333 because: (no reason given)
Differences? Seriously, that's all you got?
Last time I checked, welfare recipients were not working six months straight on a deployment away from their friends and family, twelve hours a day, almost every day straight. The were not sleeping on a metal bunk, three to a row with so little room, you have to wake up to turn over or else you will smack the crap out of your head. Last time I checked, they were not extending or volunteering right off deployment to help people in Thailand with food and clean water after a tsunami, etc.
Those in the military also pay taxes, true story. Last time I checked, most states don't tax welfare benefits.
They provide a service for pay. Welfare recipients do not provide a service, end of story.
I don't have a problem helping people that need it, but what welfare really is, is an opiate for the masses, and the drug habit has gotten out of control.
In a time where it seems that almost all politicians are bought and payed for, when I see blatant B.S. like this woman is spouting, who has no shame whatsoever, and does not even try to hide it, I really begin to understand why our country is the way it is.
