As I said earlier. our boys dodging bullets and far from their family is horrible, but their commanders can put them in that situation to good or for bad.

I hope they all make it bad and I do not want to cut soldier compensation or defense investment.

but I do reserve the right to question the intentions of the commanders and I do want to cut down on curroption and waste within the greater military industrial complex.

Well you did. You took the risk and yes I do believe they should be taken care of and there family. My ex boyfriend chose to go into the military and I couldn't handle that. So I broke up with him. I wish him good luck but its obviously a choice.

I see how nemiroff didn't come back with his points negating what I said.

Not everyone does chose that life but, if you want to send somebody to what may be their death you must take care of that person and that persons family. Now everyone can use the argument "you volunteered" But regardless of that fact, you take care of the people who take care of you.

Not everyone chose that lifestyle. I understand how pissed off you must be hearing ppl complain about petty stuff but what can you do?

Imagine you though, overseas, not with your with your wife or kids. Getting shot at and almost losing your life, you love. Imagine your party getting cut so your family loses their home. imagine your family getting a call of you being killed. No home, less pay. money can't pay back the person lost. now 3 to 5 people are lost. walk through my shoes everyday, and you'll have a different view. You'll see why I support the government, they take care of my wife and kids. You'll see why I support G-d he brings me home.

I never said you did, I blamed the average generation.

thank you for your service, but please do not go around rubbing it in everyone's faces. I'm not of the service and hope I'm not being insulting, but that doesn't seem like the type of action that would bring honor to the force.

I've never said anything against any military men, so please stop projecting random nonsense you hear on to me. I hope the soldiers make it home safe, but I reserve the right to question the motives of the commanders.

pathetic.

that's nice, but where did all that data come from? thin air? you do know you have to copy paste the link right?

I think also it depends where and how they were raised or there personality as well. I have friends who are the biggest cry babies anout petty stuff i said this to there face but i also want to help them even though its personally annoying

Not soft just not as tough. The more you have. The more things you pay attention to complain about. Sometimes it good for improvement and other times you wish spoiled ppl would get over themselves.

86% of milinials want the US to fight ISIS with only 16-40% (depending on where you a from the number changes) are willing to serve. One of the key things they want to cut in spending is the military. That being said the average milinial wants to send troops overseas to fight a war they won't be in, while cutting their pay too.

73% of college students agree students cheat, while teachers are at an alarming 86% much higher then in early 2000. Why give away free college if students cheat instead of learn?

The most common reason people leave a job today is for lack of recognition (43%) you don't need a pat on your back for doing your job, you get paid to do the rest. The next highest is internal politics (35%) You can't just show up to a job and do it and think that's enough. you have to build a relationship with the people you work with or they have a better reason to let you go. The largest type of employment is still skilled workers, but you can't be skilled if you cheat on exams and don't have a background of employment in a needed area to benefit the company.

If you see the pattern you'll see that they want to get stuff without any real effort. If you want to find these stats like I said a simple Google search will do the trick. That help you there buff?

if you are unwilling to support your own assertions then you have no place on a debating app. arguments have to be based in fact. if you cannot provide any evidence then your argument means absolutely nothing. you are just spouting your own personal opinion.

I didn't ask the government any questions...
you made a claim, it's your job to back it up. you are really coming across as lazy and self entitled.

3 years, 7 months ago

I did, I'm sorry that you want the government to feed you the answers when it's not their job to do so.

you backing up your own claims is not "spoon feeding" me. I'm sorry if your too lazy to do your own research.

3 years, 7 months ago

Simple Google search and you'll see exactly what I said. I'm not going to spoon feed you. Cheating in schools has increased because of milinials not wanting to do the work to learn. Why does education suck? people cheat on exams more now then ever. Majority of them don't support the mlitary. Many of them don't support cops. Many of them want $15 an hour for working at BK. They want to leach.

and free college is an investment in the next generation. cause making primary education standard soooo hurt our economy. we would be so much stronger if most of us couldn't read or divide properly.

you sound like a boomer. big talk, no substance.

lol, where did you get the idea the millenials don't want to do tough jobs or want to do nothing?

Can you back up that millenials cheat more than other generations?

this sounds like absolute nonsense, especially since baby bombers are known as the spoiled lazy generation.

3 years, 7 months ago

Both of you are millinials aren't you?

3 years, 7 months ago

What has the current generation done? they want free college but they cheat in class. They want money but refuse to do a job that's "tough" they want freedom of speech but criticize every military action. They want to do nothing and make millions. It doesn't work like that.

3 years, 7 months ago

every single generation thinks the next one is worse in some way. it isn't true. it is human nature to see things that way.

3 years, 7 months ago

to my knowledge, the softest, most spoiled generation were the baby boomers.

I'm actually quite proud of the millenial generation for their innovative thinking and their predisposition to participate in the government and return the power to the people.

3 years, 7 months ago

which means we are progressively getting softer

said every outgoing generation in history.
