My dad is a Vietnam vet. Uncles too. my entire family on both sides were in the military. in vietnam. in korea. your veterans day remark can go up your ass. Don’t compare fed politicians who become fabulously wealthy to civil servants. It’s disingenuous and really silly. The tab for these 500 plus people is 100 mil a year. “Service” is a joke. State elected officials. 36k. Drive hours to get there. That’s service.If there's one benefit of growing old it's wisdom, and the country could use a heavy dose of that right now. Our culture is too dismissive of the value of the elderly to our society, as evidence by the attitude of many to COVID.
Your resentment of public service is improvident. Particularly as we celebrate Veterans Day. But you are the guy who said it's all about the money.
As for age there’s a tipping point. I get wisdom but I also get wanting people in their prime. Biden is hardly in his prime. i sure as hell don't want an 80 year old lawyer trying my case. i don't want an 80 year old doctor doing my heart surgery. i don't want an 80 year old president either.
