It'* a real shame that our general population has become so comfortable and pampered, they have no grasp of reality and what it took to give them their freedom and easy life of recliners and video games. I not knocking the life, just the fact people have enjoyed the ease and protection so long and to the point they forgot the sacrifices it took to get it. The only respect they have is for themselves. They have such an idiotic delusion that makes them feel they earned and deserve everything they have. It'* takes alot more than a job and a paycheck to be able to live in a house free and enjoy all we have here. It takes Lives, Service, Dedication, and Integrity. You don't find these qualities much these days outside the Military. Thank God they still exist there.

Freedom is not free, never was, never will be.

Watch this. It will remind you of a few things.

There are some people who just don't have as much respect for our troops and pride in their country as we do. If I wasn't married and trying to buy a house, I would have signed up for the national guard with my buddy Adam.

I agree, 100%. It really erks me when people just dont realize what exactly goes into preserving the safety and freedom of that Lay-z-boy they sit in. Not hatin, i just wish people would open their eyes a little more. I've seen first hand what it takes, I just wish more people would. Everyone enjoys their freedom, yet less than 2% of the population will stand to defend it. Not saying everyone should join the military, just saying they should open their eyes....just my opinion..
