    My point was that there are no current, active duty Marines who are fat like steveox apparently is (due to his McDonalds extravaganza) and as such, he would not be eligible for the discount since he could not pass for a current Marine.

    And you don't think that's a little absurd?

    Damn those age-ists...

    You are so put upon because you can't get your chicken fingers in helpings of four rather than eight.

    Students get discounts because we're expected to be poor. Military personnel get discounts as a way of supporting American troops - making their lives, which are by the necessities of their jobs horribly stressful, a little easier to bear.

    Steveox why whould you want to get a kids meal? You should be sueing them for charging more for a mega bucket or something.

    The fact is steveox, a discount is there to help people who need it or deserve it. Students, the elderly, they have less money than the average adult. Kids, they don't eat as much.

    To wear any type of uniform such as Army,Navy,Marine,Police
    is against the law, and the law call that impersonating. These
    designer pants and jogging pants that's fronting to be military
    isn't official military wear.

    The ONLY time that I wear my Dress military colors is for a
    very special event or on memorial or Veterans Day when I go
    to visit my service friends who have died over the years.

    Look at the many crimes have taken place where the bad guy
    was dressed like a Police Officer.

    I believe so. It is wrong on a level of trust. First of all, Marine officers earn the right to wear that uniform. By that I mean they earn that right. Secondly, it is a matter of trust. Should something happen that a member of the public would normally assume a Marine might intervene (issues of national security), people would turn to that Marine for help or guidance.

    America puts a lot of investment and trust (and rightly so) in Marine officers. Wearing the uniform without earning it mocks all of that.
