Well, they are students, and they’re from Fresno, so that explains great deal. They evidently think th only “real” military personnel are the special forces types who run and jump and shoot the way the actors do in war movies. These are the people who look down on the military members who perform the thankless shit jobs that make up the bulk of what the military does. Oh, well.

Makes me wish they all could be drafted.

My only opinion is from the time the draft ended people who chose the military chose the risk. They also chose the road to illegal wars. The sad part of this is for many it wasn’t much of a choice just the way our government wants it; have enough men in the world who need something: direction money etc. American worship the military until it is time to care for what is left of them. Are they ignorant certainly, is it possible that they are disgusted with a government that throws every last dime of our tax dollars sending these kids to kill women and children for raytheon boeing and Israel?

No, they are only resentful of spending any money to help injured veterans, be the injuries mental or physical, upon their return as they were promised. The CRs are displaying class snobbery in its purist form, In 18th Century France, they would be the aristocrats spitting on veterans of the wars they were all for who were begging in the streets because they’d lost a limb or two.
These aren’t right-wing populists we’re talking about here; they are true members of the ruling elite class.
