    A Citizen doesn't have to refer to a Serviceman by rank, he doesn't even have to know what the rank or service is.

    "Mr. Vindman. I save such a title as a sign of respect for honorable members of the military who haven't admitted to violating their oath, haven't tried to undermine the Constitution, haven't interfered with foreign policy, and haven't participated in an attempted coup against a duly elected president. IOW, just about everyone but you."

    After 22 years of service I feel no obligation to respect someone just because he is a vet. He seems to have an inflated view of his importance and is IMO doing a disservice to our country.

    Trump probably has to be careful, as regards made up charges of witness intimidation or stuff like that.

    But maybe if the Dems lose 2020 bigly then there can be a reckoning.

    I would have taken immense pleasure in continually and purposely referring to him as "mister" for the rest of the day. Petty, but satisfying.

    You'll be astonished how much more intelligent GT seems as your special member list grows.

    It's like I said in the 'why ignore feature' thread. Some people just don't add anything helpful or interesting and only serve to clutter up a thread. You know, like me.

    I ignore tools like them, if people stopped quoting him/her/shim, it would be a true ignore.
