Nope, veterans are just greedy whiners getting a “full pension” for “retiring” after 20 years. They should either wait until they’re 62 or older to get their “full pension” payments or not go out and find another job to supplement that “full pension”, veterans are just being greedy. Veterans deserve to have any COLA adjustments reduced...they’ve earned that reduction. BOHICOLA.
Veterans didn’t earn the “full pension” they’re getting and should sacrifice for the common good...they should only get a “full pension” if they saw combat or were wounded...the rest of the servicemembers should be grateful for having had the opportunity to serve our country and move on with their lives without any compensation or benefits for time served...
Wear your wounds and ailments as a badge of honor, but don’t bother us for medical care or treatment of your chemical sensitivities, loss of hearing, bad back, torn ligaments, etc. that came as a result of serving. Consider it a small price to pay for having had the priviledge of wearing the uniform.
Everyone should have skin in the game and veterans should be the first to sign/line up for getting shaved...the rest of the leeches will come later, trust me.
/s (but this is an example of the types of tripe that has been posted on other threads.)
And you're right, that tripe is very typical of what others have posted elsewhere. May I add that some of those other FReeper actually identify themselves as retired veterans? Unbelievable.
Have some examples? ... Am in full agreement with Hijinx. I too almost didn’t read the entire post.
