90%? Did you take a poll?


It's hyperbole...like, you're retarded. I don't think you're actually retarded, but it's an exaggeration on that fact that you're behaving stupidly.

Did this picture have anything to do with the topic?


It was a humorous picture of someone wearing what appears to be some sort of military jacket...poorly. Hey wait, that's kind of a humorous take on this topic! This may be why.

Why the frick are you here?


I was here reading the board...you know...just killing time. You? You in it for the serious debate over military dress codes and for failing to recognize pop culture references?

How would the constitution be protected without the Military? You guys are killing me. Seriously? Do you think that we would be the Nation that we are without our Military? China, Russia, Germany, Etc.. would let us keep our little ole constitution with no Military. You guys have to be trolling me because no one is this stupid.


As a veteran I agree with all of this.

If the military protects the USC, where were they when laws like the Patriot Act were passed? What freedoms are they currently protecting by killing people who pose less threat to me than a cop? Soldiers can't protect your freedom, but they can be used to help take them away. Not one soldier is fighting for freedom, sure they are brainwashed to think that but they are not. They fight for contracts, land, minerals, oil, etc. Instead of kings, dictators, etc calling the shots it corporate financed and bought politicians. Very few wars have ever been about a nation's safety, just its potential loss/gain.


I also agree with this

I understand where you are coming from and I do agree with you on some of your points. I respect the hell out of veterans and I understand that they did something that I could never see myself doing. But at the same time that doesn't mean someone can go around acting like an a-hole to civilians who probably don't understand the traditions and meaning behind what they are displaying. Like you said people fought and died for true freedom which does include the freedom of expression. Should they be more respectful of the uniform? Sure, but you can't go around scolding people every time an American flag touches the ground or someone wears a military uniform out of context. I know that's different than the situation in the article but my point is that while I believe people should be respectful of the military and veterans, i also believe that it is their right to not be.

Dead truth right there.

I certainly don't agree with what everyone does with their rights, but I still fought for them.

The bottom line is this, Americans need to stop worrying about shite that doesn't affect them. The vet here was not affected at all by this kid wearing a uniform, not one bit.
