Show your stripes

Have you seen the "Show your Stripes" billboards or heard the ads on the radio?  The tag line is, "Hire smart, hire vets."

That is great, right?  Who could possibly be against hiring vets?   The radio ads describe the elite training that our military personnel have.  Of course, those skills are fabulous in the workplace.

Wouldn't you like your office to be full of can-do people who work in military precision instead of a bunch of whiners who can't keep the coffee pot full?

So, what is my beef?  What is my problem?  Why does my skin crawl every time that I hear or see these ads?  (My brother is a vet by the way, hire him.)

THAT ELITE TRAINING SHOULD BE PROTECTING US.  IT SHOULD NOT BE STUCK IN THE CUBE FARM.

Do you see what I am saying?  Our military men and women DO have elite training and they should be out there kicking terrorist butt.  (Thanks, btw.)

The only reason that "millions of our veterans are coming home" is BECAUSE OBAMA HAS FIRED THEM! And, why has he fired them?  He has slashed our military so that we can have unlimited entitlement programs.

He would rather that these young men stay here and collect a welfare check than equip them with the finest training our nation can provide and making them proud American soldiers.  Soldiers that have a clear mission, to fight for freedom everywhere in the world.  A mission that involves providing more humanitarian aid than any other organization in the world.

Hire vets.  But, remember, they have a mission.  And, that mission is being neglected.
