This is a really bad analogy. I don't agree with it. If you are
talking about cleaning up the mess our immigration is in, and clearing out those
that do not belong here to give jobs to our returning military, then I agree.
Please John and Mike research the rewards currently provided for those who have
served and I think you will find they have been given a very fine suite in the
Inn. Lifetime benefits for medical treatment, education monies, disability
monies, preference in federal and many state employment opportunities. Truly
they have sacrificed and the nation has generously rewarded the service even if
they do not receive the parades of the World War II era, neither do they receive
the spit, vile words and demonstrations of those returning from Vietnam.
We so despise government now we've emaciated and disabled it. The GI bill
created the post war middle class but we're not making that mistake again.
The first law is "sacrifice". We all sacrifice for others. We all
give more than we get. We all contribute more to society more than we get back
in return.Yes, we need to appreciate the military. But should we
appreciate them more than we appreciate the school teacher or the policeman or
the grocer or anyone else who serves us?Should we take away jobs
from those who are qualified, to give to others who are not qualified, just
because they served in the military , or served as police officers or served as
teachers?In America, NO ONE. Gets a free ride - NO ONE.
This piece almost renders me speechless, but I find it so galling that I have to
speak out. The idea that the coming home of American troops can be even remotely
comparable to the significance of Mary and Joseph seeking room in Bethlehem is
at least sacrilegious. It only makes sense if you believe that our troops have
been engaged in a religious crusade against pagans. I guess that's where we are
these days: returning to the Dark Ages.
