It's a really a screwed up psychological thing. That's not to take away from the individual members of the military or the people that honor them. But it is still a fact.

Yet people have no problems with millionaire athletes and entertainers eating free at restaurants. Or people know having a problem letting politicians tell them how they are going to fix gas prices, at the same time they are issued gas cards at the tax payers expense. I find that as a screwed up psychological thing.

I don't respect my family members who have served any less b/c of their service but I'll be damned if I'm gonna give them a special shout out during the blessing of sunday dinner.

You can't compare atheletes and entertainers to public workers.

But yes, politicians suck gas

Face.  Palm.

Because they're literally putting their lives on the line for our benefit.  Letting uniformed servicemen board first is a really trivial way to say, "hey, thanks guys".  Whining about it seems pretty immature.
