Just Another Sucker: A Conversation


Just Another Sucker: A Conversation

Peter Schultz


            When I happened to mention that I had served in the Army, the young man said: “Thank you for your service.”


            I said: “Oh, don’t thank me. I was just another sucker going off to fight a war that made the rich richer and the nation worse off.”


            He said: “Oh, so you’re a Trump supporter.”


            I said: “Never!”


            He said; “Why not?”


            I said: “Because Trump is just another old rich guy telling poorer young people to go fight in wars that will make Trump and other rich people richer.”
