I also notice that many of these do not have family in the armed services, no matter how much they like to wrap themselves in the flag...they also do not want their standard of living to suffer in any way as well.

And of course, they are the special, holy ones that will undoubtedly be raptured up into God's chosen host before things get really bad (even though that whole notion was the result of 19th century spiritualist thinking ala Joe Smith, and has very little real basis in actual Christian scripture and nothing at all to do with any common sense).
At this point, what is there to say but, heh, "God help us!"
