Tommy Moo: Arumat: Tommy Moo: YouPeopleAreCrazy: Tommy Moo: Christ soldiers get a lot of benefits. I don't want to hear any more about "sacrifice" or "service." The military is a sweet gig. You get paid less than the rest of us, but there are a million charities and corporate discounts ensuring that you get a bunch of free shiat and upgrades everywhere you go for the rest of your life.Said by someone who has never put on the uniform.I've also never been an NBA player. Does that mean I don't have the right to observe that they have awesome lives?No, but it also doesn't mean that you can't be called out for talking out your ass. It's not legal, but discrimination against veterans is actually becoming common again. Let me know when getting $.25 off a coffee at Starschmucks is worth a potential lifetime of disabling injuries, psychological issues, and being stereotyped as a PTSD time bomb waiting to go off.Absolute horseshiat. Everywhere I look people are worshiping veterans as "heroes" and honoring their service. It's not just a quarter off at Starbucks. They get huge, enormous, legitimate discounts on air travel, plus a good chunk of their lifetime health care covered at VA hospitals. You walk into any room and tell people you're a veteran and every woman in the room gets wet and every man in the room wants to shake your hand. What farking planet do you live on where veterans are a reviled minority? Are you farking kidding me?Then on top of all of the social knob slobbery, we now have special government programs that discriminate against non-veterans by paying companies to hire vets. It's already a hard enough job market without having a special class get boosted over you.
