    If you want to know the true thing: I agree with you.

    I just thing MSgt is a gigantic scum-sucking windowlicker and decided to step in. I honestly think he's a great example of why civilians control the military, not vice versa.

    Sounds like typical redneck, working-class ethic to me. Every grunt would like to believe his master is nothing without his wisdom. I suspect there's a reason why grand strategy is ultimately determined by people who aren't high school dropouts looking for a G.I. Bill.
    Number 1..you cant get into the military without a high school diploma. and number 2..oh hell, nevermind. It is simply not worth it.

    Funny enough, I'm a high-school dropout myself. Left and got my GED to get a job when I was sixteen.

    I went to the recruitment centre near my old school with my buddy, and that little detail didn't stop the recruiter from given me the whole spiel.

    Good life if you want it, I suppose, but where he'll be a retired military mechanic or some such in twenty years, I'll be a history professor. Nothing wrong with either life, but the latter is the one I want.

    Was number 2 asking what a dropout would do with the GI Bill?

    No, that's where education comes from. You believe yourself to be superior?

    You and everyone else who thinks uninformed opinions trumps informed ones. And not the the kind of informed opinions that shine out from the magic TV cube.

    Don't know what you are talking about. Shaking your lonely little fist at the government doesn't change the fact that ignorance won't replace ignorance. It's your kind that sit on high.

    They haven't earned their rights. They have been given. Do you earn your inheritance? Do you earn your daddy's throne? We're just lucky.

    Then nobody has, not even you. Rights are freely given to all - whatever else you have done is not about "deserving" rights.

    It may have been..but sometimes before I get too carried away, I remind myself that some things just arent worth responding to.

The military changes because it must. Not because it is advanced, nor better than the civilian sector.
    The military changes because a civilian judge and civilian Secretary of Defense made them.
