U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene disparaged the 1.33 million active-duty U.S. Department of Defense members, including the 481,254 active-duty U.S. Army members by declaring that joining America's Armed Forces is "like throwing your life away."

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Joining Military Is 'Throwing Your Life Away'

Interesting. Is she saying being a patriot and wanting to protect this nation as "throwing your life away"?

Beyond patriotic duty, I have seen it fundamentally change the lives of many people I know for the better. Sure it doesn't work for everyone and there is having to go to battle and potentially die but "throwing your life away"? Could she be any less respectful of our veterans?

She's saying serving in the military is for losers. Natural extension of Trump's yammering about McCain's pow status. Just a little farther down the drain.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit [to Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in Paris in 2018] because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, "Why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers." In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as "suckers" for getting killed.

She's right but not for the reasons she thinks.

If you join the military right now, you're a moron. Trump could easily be the commander in chief in a couple years. Then you'll get orders to use your weapons on your fellow americans.

Did you simply copy and paste this from the other thread you posted it on?

It's the most apathetic condemnation I've ever read.

This is why Trumpers want to destroy America.

Their hate for people of non European descent.

It's astonishing they lack the self awareness to realize they're only here because their ancestors were escaping their lives in Europe and America was the land of opportunity.

C'mon Joe.....our military is very important and keeps us safe. Absolutely we've made mistakes, but to make a blanket statement like she did is really un-American. What's next, defund the military, GOP style? LOL and "MTG right" is a oxymoron :)

It's no wonder why sh*tstains like Donnie Fail and Sporkfoot hate the military. The training the military provides in return for a few years service is invaluable to millions of poor people who cannot afford college to get training and life skills needed to pull themselves out of poverty.

Doctors, nurses, technicians, software engineers, airline pilots, mechanics all have realized the American dream using the skill training and benefits they received serving our nation.

Of course these tools hate them, they use their work ethic to make their lives better. Something those two know nothing about.
