I am tired of the over-the-top praise for military in the USA. I am truly bothered by the "buy from me, I'm former military" as though that makes them better people or better at what they do.

    This caught my eye. My wife is a former vet and I try to shop military owned since many of my friends are also veterans. I work as a project manager in commercial construction and I can tell you that most of the veteran owned and marketed contractors pricing has been too high to even be competitive.

    There is a reason military people, in the USA, are praised beyond accomplishment or warrant. I’ve studied it for years.

    Take a normal, rational human being. They will take care of their health and safety. They will take care of their blood relatives. Then they will take care of adopted children and parents, their close friends, and an attractive acquaintance. This is our “natural survival instinct,” that is in all of us.

    When it comes to strangers it becomes a matter of, if it’s convenient and has a possible reward. “Foreigners are helped if they have some connection through business or similar ideology. This is a diminishing scale.

    Self preservation and one’s genetics are preserved up to and including a battle to the death.

    Now take that person and remove them from their home, family, and friends. Place them in a strange location with a strange atmosphere, strange people, and strange ways of society: that’s the military.

    Now you ask them to kill another stranger they have never met, in a place they’ve never heard of. They will think you are crazy, and in fact you are.

    Now, take every child, put them in a place where an invisible man is always watching them and will mercilessly punish them if they don’t follow rules that are given by a man who says he knows the invisible one and was told by that person to teach you how to behave.

    A child’s mind can not overpower an adult’s, who your parents tell you to listen to and believe. Then, every week, you are shown “great people” going to battle and you wear colorful shirts and hats with “team” symbols reminding you who’s team you’re on.

    You now believe, as a teen, that not only are there rules that don’t make sense, and invisible people you never meet, and odd activities where you often hear of killing people not on your “team,” without understanding why, you need to kill for your family’s chosen team.

    Now your government comes in and says they need you, or your home and family will be destroyed. You not only believe that but you chant and shout their tribal sounds and can’t wait to go to that unknown land to kill the unknown people.

    Our society needs to keep up the charade so young, otherwise intelligent, people will give their lives to insane causes.

    When a teen says they are going to war, the crowd cheers so that child will not realize how insane that activity really is.

    But what of the veteran who’s older and should be wiser. They continue the charade. Some wallow in it. I met a man in his 80s who flys an American flag above a MIA flag. He announces to everyone he meets that he is a veteran. He served a few years in the military almost 70 years ago and his identity is from those handful of years as he turned 20 years old. He’s made no valuable accomplishment in his life. He’s been trapped in the brainwashing of his youth. And he’s a miserable person to be around.

    Do we tell him he’s wasted his life? No, we praise him “for his service.” Just in case another teen is listening, we don’t want that teen to wake up from the societal coma and say, “What the hell do you want me to do? Are you crazy?”

    People join the military because they were too lazy to make a real plan for after school and it got talked up and advertised. I was in 3 youth military programs for all of my teen years before my peers turned 18 and caught the ignorance-fueled fever to join thinking they knew everything, and I met so many flag officers and enlisted of every branch and they nearly all privately talked me out of it. The recruiters harassed me daily over that 99 on the ASVAB and I rejected an $80k ROTC scholarship because too much had already been explained to me. Absolutely don't think I'm "better" for declining. I was lucky I had 6 years to learn about it from people who were in it.

    Keep in mind the Constitution lays out that we must go out of our way to renew appropriations every 2 years for the express purpose of deciding freshly whether to defund everything but the Navy. There is a reason the founding fathers put that in there.

    I'm tired of we need over the top advertising and pushing of I'm a minority or a woman owned business so poor fucking me boo hoo give me an advantage based on my gender or skin color. You know why on an actual grassroots main street level none of that shit works? It's because real consumers are sick of this SJW woke millennial crybaby culture shit.

    Today people are all weak and looking to feel special. My grandfather stormed the beaches at Normandy and he would have been embarrassed by all of these so called veterans looking for preference.
