This thought came to be in this thread. "Support the troops" is extremely vague. If I pay taxes, I "support the troops". I "support the troops" but I also "support the teachers" in that I respect and appreciate what they do and see their jobs as forms as service that are underpaid and very much needed. So, what does that phrase mean to you? In the sense that it means something to you, how do you demonstrate that support? Do you support them in some way above and beyond how you support other public servants or professions that you hold in high esteem? Notes: *Don't be antagonistic. If you hate the military/troops in all forms, congrats, but this is not the thread for you.
