soldiers don't deserve what they get paid....f off...ETA

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Seriously, who in their right mind would say this? Dumb assholes would. If that's your opinion then YOU do not deserve what our military does for you! They are extremely underpaid and those "extras" so many of you call them aren't shit, and are completely justified. Fuck you.

ETA: I thought the reasoning behind this post was pretty clear, but many of you are completely misunderstanding. This is NOT a complaint about being underpaid, nor have I made any conplaints. My family lives JUST fine and my SO did not join for the pay nor does he ever utter a word about it. This is due to an earlier post in which comments were mamade about how undeserving our military is of what they do get. Andno, it was not just that they are paI'd adequately, they were comments stating they do not deserve to be paid what they are. While my stance is that no dollar amount would suffice or cover what our mimilitary and their families endure and sacrifice, I DO believe they are completely deserving of what they get.


ETA AGAIN: I apologize for using the term soldiers and limiting it to one branch. Not my intention or opinion, just a habit due to my SO's branch. I am referring to ALL of our armed forces.

Meh, I don't care what they get paid... but they aren't really DEFENDING us, they have been on the offensive and killing kids in adults in other countries in recent history. I believe in a defensive military, strictly.

 Yes.

Quoting Hannahluvsdogs:

So what people actually said is that their pay is adequate?

Quoting Anonymous:

There was a post about pay to our armed forces in which SO many said that soldiers get extras and get paid enough. Basically that they don't deserve to be paid enough for sacrificing what they do because that was the choice they made.




Quoting Hannahluvsdogs:

I feel like I missed something...did someone in here say that?

Oh no! Don't get me wrong, we live just fine and I am more than grateful for what we do recieve...my DH has never complained about pay, nor have I, obviously that's not why he serves. I do happen to think they are underpaI'd but I do not complain...I only posted this due to the post earlier.

Am I the only one whose family has no problem living comfortably off DH's pay?

LOL. Keep telling yourself that.  I have a difference of opinion. Did I say the military doesn't deserve what they get paid?  No. They work for the government, they deserve to get paid for their work. I just stated what they are doing is not for the common civilian.  NO government in this world works for the safety of the common civilan in mind. 

Quoting Anonymous:

You don't deserve shit from our country and don't deserve to be here. Our military works for the gvnmt...but what happened to make them do so? Oh that's right, innocent families lost loved ones in a tragedy. And our military, after preventing further happenings in our homeland, now fights to protect the safety of those families and children you talk about. Their own people are rhe ones hurting and killing them.

i have seen VETS who have not gotten what they deserve. but i see more arrogant military assholes than you would think.

Quoting Anonymous:

Actually, I have. And I am in NO way discounting our stateside hero's, though the armed forces do endure different situations. I personally think they are all underpaid and underappreciated. ...I was just referencing an earlier post which only had to do with the military.


Quoting Anonymous:

so are cops/ firemen/ pole electricians.

the list goes on. i wont say they dont sometimes deserve better, but i have yet to see one living in poverty or being homeless, sick, and no way to see a doc.

 Who is "they"? Have you actually researched 9/11? America was supposed to be known for justice, fair trials, ect. and Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, NOTHING. My dad is a veteran, and he'll be the first to tell you that these wars are about oil and greed. Our soldiers are killing and dying for no damn good reason. I am a firm believer that our troops should be home right now, and that is how I personally support the troops. By advocating to bring them home. You know, to actually protect OUR land.

Quoting Anonymous:

How ignorant can you be? They DID attack our country...and our military does far more than control that aspect. They protect our homeland on every aspect. You clearly do not deserve what they do for YOU


Quoting Anonymous:

What does the military do for me? I'm not scared of innocent muslims in countries that have no way to attack America with an army or a navy or nuclear weapons. These wars are  not about our freedom. So I get to have my opinion to.

we are good over here...know several families that do:) 
Like someone else said, do our military/civil service workers deserve more? YES! is the money there to pay them it right now? NO. Everyone knows going in the pay can be rough starting off, they still joined. it isn't the 60's and we don't have a draft. If they don't like the money and benefits, they are more then welcome to leave when their contract is up.

I know it's going to be hard for you to comprehend, but, your country attacked itself. It was an inside job.
