Mommy Governments Veterans Day Gift Insulting
Mommy government passed a new law in the Senate today unanimously. Fuck you senate. I find the whole thing degrading and insulting. Veterans don't need special handouts. They didn't go serve over seas to get special benefits over other citizens. They are not less competent than others (in fact I would argue that on average a veteran is more competent). Veterans don't need special treatment or advantages. Our country was founded on the ideal that all men are equal and we should be striving to that goal. This endless series of laws that singles out one group or another for special tax credits and rewards needs to stop.
No person should get preferential treatment when applying for a job. Those decisions should be made based on the applicants ability to do the job relative to others applying for the position. No one should get a job because the government offered a $9600 bribe. Fuck you government and your condescending attitude. These vets survived through hell, they deserve to be treated with dignity as men and women, not coddled like helpless children. If you really want to help the military, increase the pay scale and stop treating war like a political tool. Using soldiers as a way to get political brownie points is sick and it really pisses me off.
It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
