Veterans have been mentioned a lot recently in the numerous threads and flame wars we have been having on public assistance. Why are veterans still lumped to impoverished groups of Americans? I work for the government with a lot of vets. They are anything but impoverished. They have the best cushy jobs and never worry about money. They have benefits on top of benefits, get subsidized educations, and they have job preference over everyone. In my state, there are usually a ton of veterans measures to be voted on during every election, usually another tax break, and they always get the votes. Before you vets rip me a new asshole, please. I understand what a sacrifice and an honorable service this is, and that there are poor vets out there with issues that prevent them from working all together. But are we always going to think of vets and their families as poor people living of their last dimes? It seems like a pretty nice gig these days that leads to even better jobs.
