Translation: I am old, and did not like my time as a soldier. Listen to me elevate the role of peace officer, and subtly include derogatory comments about the aptitude of the military.
Thats just what I read.
Correction: I'm 42. That ain't old and I loved my time as a soldier. Playing with tanks and patching up Rangers and drinking with the occasional Marine or Bundeswehr Panzer Grenadier was some of the most fun I've ever had. If you want to hear me elevate cops above the rest of us just ask. I'll flat tell you that Ibelieve that your average cop really deserves more praise for the job he does than doesthe average butcher, baker or candle stick maker. I'll also gladly criticize the ones that screw up. If you want a cop free paradise I hear that Mogadishu is a real buyer's market right now. If you want me to trash talk those scoundrel politicians and scumbag capitalist pigs, just ask and I can do that too.
Subtle? SUBTLE?! SUBTLE!?!?!?
I take umbrage at your insinuation that my digs at the military are subtle and bite my thumb at you. I fully and openly intend for my "derogatory comments"to be plain enough for even a Second Lieutenant to understand. Any service man, past present or future who can't handle a bit of loving abuse needs to man up and grow some thicker skin.
Maybe next time I'll try my hand at arguing the other side of the equation. That could be fun too.
