Ben Carson: A moral oxymoron

If you are going to run around claiming some moral authority based on your religious views, like Ben Carson, then the worst group of people to lie to about yourself is veterans and serving members of the army / armed forces.

It's a group that won't tolerate your moral ambiguity when it comes to yourself and your accomplishments. They will eventually abandon a civilian that claims some special priviledge when it comes to military service when you never dug a trench, never humped a rucksack, and never served... your attributional need to belong to the military is no substitute for serving.
