Are those people serving in the military the only people earning their money?
There are those of us who work 40 hour a week jobs for low wages (because in the real world not everybody can be a millionaire),
we work our butts off, we pay our taxes, pay our dues.
I pay taxes,
this goes back into the community
I earned the benefits that I paid into, so please get off it.

They do a hell of a lot more than 50 million Americans collecting food stamps.
Obviously their motto is since they aren't no one else should be hence the "fair share"
So do most millionaires
Right. Because you're only a hard working American if you serve in the army?? Every single one of those 50 million Americans struggling are lazy? Communist? You've just decided to make this big generalization to suit your argument? Do you actually pay attention to what you're saying here?
And regardless of whether we're talking about soldiers taking advantage of government funded healthcare, support, in the end it's still government funded help and support, it doesn't change the nature of that support
Oh really? All millionaires do this? After the trillion dollar Bush tax cuts that favored the wealthy,
n 2010 alone, government at all levels oversaw a transfer of over $2.2 trillion in money, goods and services. The burden of these entitlements came to slightly more than $7,200 for every person in America. Scaled against a notional family of four, the average entitlements burden for that year alone approached $29,000.
Who has been fighting a war the last decade?
That person collecting welfare watching Jersey shore?
Considering they are getting shot at and limbs blown off they are "entitled"
I do love that talking point since the current guy and his party were fighting to Keep those Bush tax cuts
Yeah with over 200 million Americans getting some form of government check
Does this argument make sense to you? This idea that unless you're somebody willing to join the army to be sent off into some unjust war like Iraq to get one of your limbs blasted away, you're just a lazy American collecting food stamps? Why are people like you so eager to divide this country between soldiers, civilians, rich and poor? How can you sit here and attack every single American out there who is not serving in the military and is struggling?? You're just not making any sense, just more Fox noise and that's it.
Where did I say they weren't entitled Neo? What I said was that the nature of those benefits they are receiving, the kind of benefits, would by your definition be socialist. Whether they are soldiers or civilians doesn't the change the fact that they are receiving entitlements, the very thing people like you are raging against, and it's hypocritical.
Really? 200 million? Where's your source that 200 million Americans are getting "some form of government check
The difference is that key word earn they actually do something to earn them.
Really hate doing the work that others should be doing themselves it does not take a lot of effort to look those figures up.
