Military appreciation has jumped the shark

You guys are missing the point. 

We’re rapidly becoming a military class system separated from our fellow civilian countrymen. 

Not only that but becoming extremely entitled with all our “benefits”. 

Common question I get asked when I tel military people I’m planning to get out is “oh I wonder what your disability rating will be!”

YGBSM I’m a healthy dude I don’t need any disability. 

“Oh but you should get checked out just in case you can get some money from the VA!”

thats the type of entitled thinking that’s seeping into our military culture. Entitlement. It’s not good. 

Sidebar ....

getting the va rating stuff (if any) figured out as soon as you separate is paramount. It’s not about the money (and you can decline it if it suits your moral high ground).

It’s about getting service connection and a “chain of evidence” established while its fresh....so that 40 years from now when you need a kidney transplant because the chem trails cocktail of the month turned out to be carcinogenic you aren’t thoroughly screwed. 

Dont scoff the va stuff. It’s worth the effort early. 

And glad to hear you’ve got everything all figured out ....

Since toll roads are out of control in Texas, I’d be all for getting a plate to avoid paying. My research shows the TX Tag and Harris county toll roads (Houston) only recognize the Medal of Honor, Service Cross or Purple Heart for free tolls. Am I missing something?

And Lowes...gents, Lowes is for housewives and people who don't know what they are doing. Find a local contractor, become friends, figure out where he shops for supplies and go there. It's usually better stuff, and beats the Lowes 10% off. 

 

 

 

Interesting.  I go to Lowe's quite a bit and always see contractors vehicles in lot, and contractors inside buying mass amounts of stuff.  Where do you shop?

Well, in my slice of America, Lowe's and Ace are the two options, and I can tell you that the folk at Ace are just as clueless as the fine folks at Lowe's.  And Ace doesn't give me 10% off.

Since I live in the boonies, I have a wireless internet provider. I just changed providers and the dude is checking the router in my "I love  me" study. He looks at the aircraft prints, plagues, etc. and asks if I had been in the military. When I answered yes, he says he is taking 50% off the $100 install fee. Should i have said "No thanks."?

lol thats awesome. i think you've missed the point of the thread.
you must have a nice study
If you had been paying attention, you would understand that Bashi would have preferred the installer commit ritual seppuku as a demonstration of gratitude for your service. You would then pay full price, but still use a dial-up modem. This way everyone bleeds for Lady Liberty!
