My son would kill me (not literally) if he were serving in the military and I were off making a public spectacle of myself bitching about the way things are run. Good Lord, I can't even get away with that with his elementary school.
Why do you types think this is somehow an intelligent or reasonable rebuttal? Why don't you just counter? You see how I debunked your source? Why don't you actually take the comments I made, break them down, and attempt to intelligent counter them? You're here, you're posting. It doesn't take that much more energy.
Why don't you just do that? Is it because you can't?
You'd have to act in accordance with your conscience.
On the other hand, you'd have to take into account that- especially if you made headlines- he might take flack for it, just like in elementary school.
Except that, if he were deployed at the time, the consequences could be far more serious.
Taking all that into account, you'd then have to act as your conscience dictated.
I'm not sure whether these parents haven't thought their actions through, or whether they have, and they've decided that despite the potential repercussions, they need to do this.
Since I don't know, i'm not going to judge them.
