Economic and Military Ignorance

Email Print

Here is a quote that someone saw on Facebook: “A man with a helmet on a field defending this country should make a higher salary than a man with a helmet on a field defending a ball.” There are many things I could say about this, both economically and militarily, but I just want to point out that no U.S. soldier with or without a helmet on a field in some foreign country is defending this country in any way.

Unfortunately, my reader friend does not have a link to the quote. Perhaps someone who is on Facebook (I am not) can find it.

Update: thanks to those who sent me links. Here is one. Here it is on Twitter.
