We are giving them first access to board a plane.

Ahh military threads. Guaranteed to bring out the trolls and the "Blah blah military members aren't special, I do something more important than them and I don't get special treatment" garbage.

It's really amusing to see people get all riled up about this kind of thing. "OMG they're being nice to soldiers and I have to wait a few extra minutes to board! fark YOU you stupid mindless twats, WHARRRRGARRRRBLE!!!"

Do you not see how ridiculous you seem when you do this kind of thing?

You want to know the real reason they're letting uniformed personel board first? Because it pisses off small minded folks like you, and it's entertaining as hell to watch.

"You see, Mr Ayers, it's because of who we are, want what we have done, and all the sacrifices we have made that allow you the very freedom to question why we should be appreciated. Do you think a soldier would put up with that shiat in China or North Korea? No. He'd kindly smack you in the face with his rifle, rape your daughter, and shoot your donkey, and then ask that you treat him with more respect in the future. I am glad you can voice your opinion that you don't think we deserve the slightest shred of special treatment or respect, because it shows that everything we have worked for, everything we have fought for, all your freedoms of expression are still there for you."
www.wearysloth.com
"And quite frankly, we do like to know that all our hard work is appreciated. Even it is just something of such little significance as being allowed a couple of extra minutes to get on the plane and stow our gear, and get comfortable before the two lard-asses who will be sitting on either side of me, plop down, and both take up 1/4 of my seat each. The airlines arn't giving us blowjobs and poached salmon eggs, they are just letting us be among the first to board, which actualy doesn't add any time or inconvience on your part at all. So we kinda wonder why you feel the need to make a big deal out of it."

"Well, I have a flight to catch. I am heading back to a combat zone for my 4th deployement in 5 years, because someone has to do it, and it certianly isn't going to be you.

[Citation needed]


In the 1930s my country of second nationality banana farmers formed a union demanding higher wages from the United Fruit Company. The United States threatened to invade our country unless we put them down, and our army marched on them and shot 600 or so farmers.

20 years later the CIA had one of the leading liberal candidates for president, who rose to popularity because of his investigation of the matter, killed.

It plunged the nation into a 10 year war of infighting between the liberal elite and the conservative elite, followed by another 50 years of unending violence and drug trafficking that can all be tied back to the United States meddling in our affairs in order to protect her "interests" without giving a single fark what happens to the citizens of our country.

Yes, this is his point. Furthermore, what with the United States being a dying empire, there is a far-off (but still legitimate) threat that perhaps different classes of citizenship will emerge: those with military service and those without it.

OK, so what we need is another level of airport security.

The first level is to make sure that noone gets on board with a weapon; yeah, fine, we all know this one, moving on.

The second level uses a special machine that gauges the worth of the person that steps through on a scale of Asshole to Hero. We've got one of those, right?



So: active military, teachers, firefighters, nurses, working mothers, and oncologists get on first.

Then doctors, scientists, technical support agents, video game designers, garbage men (and women), and people that work in retail and still manage to smile at the idiots they deal with in a day go next.

And all down the line, until you get to deadbeat fathers, drunken uncles, baby spawners on Welfare, the entire Westboro Baptist Church, pedophiles, drug users, and cast members from The Jersey Shore. But I might be repeating myself on those last few.

I thought it was a strange misspelling of "violent".


I'm pretty sure he meant "virulent". Actually, since these were his spoken words, the error is probably on the fault of the transcriber. You go to Alabama, Texas, Minnesota, etc, you'll find words all over which should be spelled differently if written as-spoken, but you "know what they meant".

If you are uncertain which word was spoken, you shouldn't just make up a NEW word which doesn't exist to fit what it most sounded like. If you believe they definitely spoke a word in error, you can [sic] it as annotation if you really want to convey the way it was spoken without being accused of mistranscribing it yourself.

You know how they encourage you to "don't edit yourself"?
In your case, I disagree. Edit. Your sentences are ablated by their own chaff.

"you know" is a low-class discourse marker. It's asserting others must believe this because it's reasonable, and you know, you're reasonable, so surely we're seeing the same thing. It's pointless. How others view your statement will not improve with such an insistence.

The perks of the military person gets does NOT outweigh the risks they take. We are seeing it every day with PTST and other issues like that. WE aren't giving them the healthcare they deserve or should get. We shouldn't worship them, but then again, we shouldn't give them the cold shoulder. SO they get first boarding priorities. And they get free meals on certain days of the year. Is that really a bad thing?

I really don't give a rat's ass about the special treatment they get from airports or restaurants. I care more about the treatment they get from the government. Or rather, the lack of care.
