I Don’t Need Your Gratitude – A Veteran Thoughts

The way people act towards veterans makes me wonder why did I serve. The same people I promise to protect, with the crappy pay I got, the shitty jobs I did, giving my life if needed. Act like I am a loser for what I did. They either use me to better theirselves or avoid me at all cost.

So let me tell you what I think of all of you.

Socialist and liberals: I really look at you as the lowest form of human life. I keep telling myself “they have a right to their opinion.” But being honest, if you were broke down on the side of the road, I wouldn’t stop to help. Your constant whining and bitching about how nothing is fair is really on my nerves and not in a good way. Grow up, realize life is what it is and put on your “big boy pants.”

Politicians: I am sick and tired of lying politicians. Don’t get me wrong, there are some good ones that are really trying to fix an agreement I signed with the government and make the government comply with that agreement.

I’m talking to the politicians who claim they are trying to fix things and never do a damn thing. If all of the politicians who claim they are working on this matter actually did work on it, it would be fixed.

But you use me as a crutch to retain your office. You are my enemy. I hate you.

Whining veterans: Who blame all of their life problems because you served and then want me to give them money. I’m over your crap. I served, fought my mental issues and won. Just because you served doesn’t mean I need to kiss your butt. It means you adapt and conquer. You embarrass me and I try not to rip you a new rear end.

V.F.W. and American Legion: I have a personal issue with you. When I came home from Beirut, I came to you for guidance and advise on how to handle everyday issues back in the civilian world. To this day I will always remember what you told me. “Kid, you weren’t in a real war. Go away.”

Now you tell me I can come to you, become a member, join my brothers in arms, because your membership is dying off and you need somebody to bury you when you croak. Kiss my ass, you self-centered, self gratifying piece of shit. Your actions alone have caused me 30 years of silence on if I served or not.

Socialist Cities: You have a “gay day parade.” Telling children it’s great to have diversity and they should welcome a persons choice in life but do nothing for your police, fire or military. The people you turn to when something goes wrong. Hell, you asked the military to intervene and remove a President recently. Because you didn’t like to outcome of an election.

I laugh at your taxes while listening to the people cry about them. I guess people are just that stupid to allow themselves to be insulted and enslave. I did do my best to protect their right to be retarded and I’m happy to see I succeeded.

Finally, if you still feel you need to thank me. Please don’t. I don’t need your sympathy. I have managed my nightmares, sleeping shakes, waking up in sweat all by myself. I fought my demons and won. All by myself. No government intervention, no organization intervention or anything. But if you still want to thank me, grow, become better, show me by means of your actions that you value your God given rights.

I often think I was a fool to serve in the military. I should have allowed the bad people to come here and kill you. I thought I was doing something that mattered but people don’t care, not then or now.

All I do know is: I am a person that others wished would go away and I will. If things go bad for you, if others are trying to kill you, enslave you, take away your unalienable rights, I will stay out of it. Because I have learned my lesson about people and will mind my own business.
