The military is a government entity, so yes, they do decide who gets paid what. And our military is chaulk full of men and women who work hard and risk their lives so we can be free and yet don't get paid accordingly.

Are you saying the military decided that a quarterback should make $14M a year? No. Hard work and dedication made that happen. A student has to dedicate themselves from the time they are in 8th grade, and assume massive amounts of debt in order to become a veterinarian. Was that the military's decision? No. Someone interviews and joins the military after being given public access to the pay grade. Was that the military's decision? No. They made that choice themselves.

No, I didn't say that. You aren't getting the point to my meme.

I don't care how much work and dedication it takes to make it in pro sports, it does not compare to the hard work and dedication it takes in the military. The absurdity of paying an athlete millions while our men and women in the military are being paid peanuts.

It does not matter how much hard work or determination is required for the job, the wages they receive are agreed upon when they sign the contract. The same goes for any job.

Sounds like someone loves sports and getting paid no matter how unreasonable the "contract".
Not referring to Spursfan of course.
Prople want to be entertained and have their minds numbed. People don't to pay (and there by encourage) occupations that uphold law and decency; teach youth how to be successful; save lives in a medical emergency; drag victims out of burning houses..... Etc, etc. People want those jobs done for free or next to nothing.
That makes me want to make a picture with a caption......

You're on the button here perfectly! Playing sports takes talent and hard work to be a pro,... you and I realize that. Basically these pros get paid millions to do something they enjoy. Grunts have life and limb on the line,.. they can't walk away from a fire fight,.. like atheletes do after a game. They don't get the hot shower,... clean clothes,... steak and beer afterwards. They are tasked with putting their ass in harms way for peanuts really,.. so that athletes,.. and spectators,.. can enjoy that game! They are free to play and enjoy that game because of the sweat and blood of the soldier,... and MANY generations of them. They dont have a 9-5 job,.. weekends off,... holidays,... extra pay for overtime,.. etc. They dedicate their lives for the freedom the athelete enjoys! I have been to the VA hospital,... and I see the wheelchairs,... missing limbs,... disfigured faces,... partially deaf,.. blind ... handicapps,... that they gave to their country and its citizens. If the military paid $10M contracts,... and athletes capped their pay at $60K,... some of the athletes that make $10M,... could not cut it in the military,.. physically or mentally. This is a good meme!! Great message! You are spot on brother,.. and as a vet,.. I appreciate it!

Private sector salaries are a byproduct of capitalism. Supply/demand. It's econ101.

Should we have government sponsored football or privatize the army?

Although, if Cam Newton is afraid of diving on a fumble because he doesn't want to get hurt, he sure as hell wouldn't dive on a grenade to protect his squad.

This is why (recent experience, as in yesterday): I was told to standby to receive orders to do op support for something in Texas. Once the orders actually got to me, I find out they are actually sending me to do something indeterminate in a place that will most likely be snowing most of the time while I am there, and it's in the field. However, I have a couple buddies from there, and learned that the place is mostly woods and it's a good place to "play games", so this may be fun after all. This is why we can't have those sanity things.

It's unfair, certainly, but the government can't afford to pay everyone millions.

The reason being people have been living in peaceful happy america for so long they think no one would ever want to hurt them and militaries are uneccesary. Whereas millions of people enjoy watching people play sports.

No military men and women get paid to sit in the desert and video chat with family every night. Then come back home and take a job away from someone more qualified.
