What about a man in a lab coat? Can we please start glorifying brain over brawn.
#5 to #3 - oedad (05/16/2013) [-]
meat packers go to work in lab coats *******

Because men in uniform actively risk their lives to protect people while a good chunk of people in lab coats are working for corporations trying to just make a buck off whoever walks by. Either way stop being so butthurt about people not liking what you like.

I am not even going to formulate a response for this. I'm just going to get straight to the point. YOU ARE A ******* RETARD.

Well, you just have formulated a response.

You can easily flip that.
A man in a uniform could be working as a security guard who basically does nothing risky in any given week.
And someone in a labcoat could be actively working on a cure or vaccine for a disease.

Fun fact many of the security guards are ex military whove retired, and they take the job because while they may not be able to serve anymore in the armed forces they still want to protect and defend the lives of the people around them, a security guard, a member of the national guard, air force, army, marines, navy, they all protect your life on a daily basis, show some respect man :/

I'm actually Swedish.
Besides, I don't even agree with war, and definitely not the one going on right now in the Middle East.
#21 to #19 - winglit (05/16/2013) [-]
So because you dont agree with war you dont respect the men who fight it? The men who every day whether you know it or not lay down their lives to help you? Military doesnt just fight wars btw, we further scientific progress, we help in natural disasters, we hire contractors for government jobs, which helps the economy of any country, Military is a very broad job market, and it does a lot more for you than you realize, and do you think that every day the people in the military wake up and say "OH BOY I GET TO RISK MY LIFE AND POSSIBLY END OTHERS!"... they are men and woman who serve their country because they believe in their country, because they want to maintain some tiny semblance of safety in the world so people like you can go around every day and complain that you dont agree with what they do... your'e welcome

Again, I'm Swedish, so most of that doesn't apply to me. Not that I think any kind of benefit from war is worth the massive costs, though.
The U.S. started the war, for absolutely no good reason, countless men and women are dying for no good reason, and I think it's sick that this even started, but even sicker that it's been going on for over a decade.
Not only that, but a huge amount of the soldiers are only enlisted for a chance to get a further education, which the government is very aware of, and uses to their advantage.
So, basically, I don't support the very basis behind the war, I have no respect for the soldiers, since it is my opinion that they agree to help support the war and murder innocent people, and I think the U.S. government is despicable.

But hey, that's me.

If soldiers didn't volunteer there would be a draft, regardless of why they join they still keep you from getting your ass thrown in boot camp at 18. Hate the US government all you want, but soldiers indirectly or not make a ******** of people's lives easier.
User avatar #56 to #52 - mutzaki (05/16/2013) [-]
Which is why I'm grateful to b living in Sweden, where my government doesn't send out people to slaughter and be slaughtered mindlessly. If I were ever drafted, it would be to actually defend my country. Not the kind of "defending" the U.S. army is doing, mind you.
#57 to #56 - anon (05/17/2013) [-]
Again the US would be at war regardless of whether there were volunteers or not, so people currently enlisted are taking on a massive burden just so we don't have to. So for the second and hopefully final time, blame the government if you want, but don't take it out on those selfless enough to save other people from being sent to some 3rd world ******** .

I would agree if their reasons were that noble.
However, I would guess that in the vast majority of cases, their intentions lie elsewhere. I would say most delusionally believe they're protecting their country, some believe they're doing the "noble" deed of forcing democracy in the Middle East, some think they're exterminating terrorists and so forth. So yeah, I wish what you said were true about their intentions, but it's not.

A bit of safety in the world huh? Germany in the late 1930's and North Korea would disagree with you on that one. Yes men and women of armed forces do a good service, but only to those who agree with how they do it.
#27 to #25 - winglit (05/16/2013) [-]
you mean the same Germany that tried to take control of the entire world and committing mass Genocide, only stopped by the Allied powers?... or North Korea who is only kept at bay by the power of our service men and women? Theres a reason S.Korea likes the US. You think that having no standing army will prevent evil people from trying to break apart the world? you know why N.Korea is a joke to everyone on here? because the men of the US Airforce have been monitoring them, we have protocols in place to protect and defend from nuclear attacks what do you think we do all day!? We try to keep you safe!
