Quoted from Methos:
I will never insult those who fight for the county and put their lives at stake, so don't project.
You were only able to get a degree because of privilege - let's be honest and leave it as that.
And those "relief packages" just wind up in the pockets of local warlords or other government official's coffers. The evil that men do. It's all a scam.
No one needs more than 200k annually. There are others who need it more than you do. I love how these millionaires keep preaching about the public good, but don't pay shit for taxes and transfer zillions within estate vehicles so they keep their mansions and cars and everything else they don't need. Freaking hypocrites - all of them.
You are actively insulting active military and veterans right now. "The military itself is a waste of $, always has been, always will." You went back and edited your comment after you posted it to be a complaint about retirement benefits. As far as a privilege to get a degree, everyone who lives in this country is privileged. If you are saying that I was privileged to get the degree I worked my ass off to get, taking all of my classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 in the morning until 6 in the evening so I could work Friday to Monday and Wednesdays and still get my work done, check yourself. I worked full time to support my family while earning degrees 2, 3, and 4 with some of the benefits I was promised for giving up five years of my life.
I do not resent those who make more than me. (edit: to address your comment that "no one needs more than 200k annually") You live in the United States the average income here is many times that of other countries. Why do you need a $30,000 per year income when there are so many others in other countries that live in shacks and quite literally live hand to mouth. Just having air conditioning and a refrigerator with food in it is a luxury much of the world could only dream of. It doesn't seem fair for you to have so much while so many others have so little... much less a pinball machine. After all, no one needs a pinball machine. Are all pinsiders "freaking hypocrites" that should give up our pinball machines because others have less than us?
