How about Kool Aid stand 'manager'


I can picture a Kool-Aid stand where first, you have to fill out a 10 page form to determine your hydration levels, then you are notified in 4-6 weeks that you have been approved for Kool-Aid consumption and now have to take the approval letter to a different stand (in a different neighborhood) to get "cup of Kool-Aid vouchers", which you can then take back to the original stand and redeem for a drink at a price based on your income levels, number of dependents, and your carbon footprint. At the stand, you will be given an amount of Kool-Aid based on a formula taking into account your number of dependents, monthly expenses, income, and any "Earned refreshment tax credits" You must then accept that amount of Kool-Aid whether you can drink that much or not.

He's a vet. He should be perfectly used to being told to sit down and shut up. I'm sure he's been told that a few times in his military career, including basic training.

Any ex-military that plays the "vet card" is a weakling, in my opinion.

Our Soldiers will be paid. Our Soldiers are very well compensated and appreciated by the American people. We won't let them down.

I bet $100.00 you wont say that to my face!
You do have good medical dont you?

Vets don't have any special rights/privileges that any other American citizen has.  I hate seeing them coming across as being "entitled."

Soldiers and their families were told that they'd receive at least half pay for this pay period and all money would be provided down the road.  This gov't shutdown issue has occurred in the past (Clinton) - there's no reason to panic when the lawmakers work these issues out.

BTW, lesson learned by Soldiers: maintain 6-8 month emergency funds, don't live beyond your means - just like the rest of us.

Actually we should have a little more pull as we do volunter to serve so jackwagons such as your self can feel superior to the rest of Americans!
Have you even looked at what they make?
Trust me it is well below minimum wage!
Your type just kill me ALL MOUTH!         No BRAIN!
