Stop the "Thank you for your service" litany of bullshit. You think that word is more vulgar than war? There is no glory in war. No war should be praised. War is the vulgar obscenity of the human species who are willing to be controlled by the elites.
I saw this Thank you for your service phrase after trying to confirm to no avail a source used in Susan Lee Schwartz's comment on a Daily Kos article, "Trump Breaks Faith: Executive order drops protection for families of deployed military".
The article starts by saying, "The Trump administration's draconian and hastily drafted immigration orders rescind a key protection for military families so that now even military spouses and children can be rounded up and deported."
So I followed what I thought was the link, and after reading all thirteen pages I searched to find any reference to military service. Nada.
But I did find this in the Kos article:
"Non-citizens do extremely well in the military." And this:
"The importance of providing for these men and women, and their families has been explicitly supported by Republican and Democratic administrations for obvious reasons of national security.

"Even the rabid Republicans in Congress during the Obama administration supported the continuation and expansion of this program."
And the following broke my camel's back: "As of Monday, February 20, 2017, any so-called conservative who applauds Trump's actions while applauding the service of active duty military is a hypocrite."
And therein is a mountain-sized kernel of truth. Way back in the Roman Empire, there was a saying, ad laudem et gloriam belli -- To praise the glory of war. The Romans loved war, conquering other lands, taking their bounty and bringing it home followed by a requirement of tribute, a form of rigorish or rent by another word I suppose.
