You're right it doesnt make him or other military memebers better people but it does make him very patriotic to risk his own life for the safety of yours! Just remember that when you speak your mind freely and have the rights that you do compared to other countries. And yes I am in the military as well.

    SUBJECT: Let the guy camp if he wishes, me personally I reserved mine and will be online about 1-2 hours early.
    I didnt knock him for it just trying to point out how he jumped down someones throat. Youre right it does take a certain person to be in the military but it also takes a certain person to be a Cop, a Fireman, Teacher, NHL player, Mob boss...anything really. Everyone is unique and has special talents or is born to do certain things, its not exclusive to military folks.

BC 9 out of 10 times people will back OUR troops/sailors.
    Exactly what redcard said...Great attitude soldier. "if you dont agree with me get out of the country"...WOW. From your opinion I take that you feel that no other country has had citizens put their life on the line for country or cause, only America. Yeah, thats not self righteous at all.

    A friend of mine was court ordered to attend drug/alcohol treatment and it turned his life around and he is a great guy also but I guess your friend is better because he went the military route?

    People support the troops cos they actually believe you're usually doing a good thing. History usually proves otherwise.

    It's a pity you don't learn proper English in the military, cos I thought communication was kinda important.

    Anyway, glad your pal is doing OK. Wonder how the people he robbed, beat, stabbed, in his previous life, are doing now.
    This is a forum not an english paper so yes I usually don't freak out about writing. Not sure how you can make fun of someone when you wrote "cos"?!?! Actually he was court ordered due to reckless driving, so it was 1 year jail or sign-up. So he didn't hurt anyone (nice try though)...

    Anyway we have offically jacked this thread (I say WE because atleast 3 of us are guilty of it)

    BACK ON TOPIC....sorry MODS. Rock on iCamper in Dallas.

    And people wonder why society on general has taken so many steps back. You have idiots camping out for a week to buy a damn phone.... WOW.... this guy has some issues. When you think a damn telephone is worth camping 7 days for its time you get a life check and figure out what went wrong

    So he choose the military rather than a year in jail? Sounds more like a coward than a hero to me

    If you had bothered checking the article, you'd know that the guy has issues in the form of a seizure disorder. He has no job at the time being and it's summer. The guy is taking a week to chill and have fun with the attention he's getting waiting for a product he likes. He's not some world-known surgeon who is literally killing patients because he's not in the hospital.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    What rights of mine was he fighting for? It's been a while since any country directly threatened any of my rights. I'm assuming he's not an 80+ year old WW2 vet.

    Ok to everyone who says the military has nothing to defends our rights from... Your welcome. To those who support our military... Thank you. Topic is done. Sorry I brought anything up. This is an iPhone forum, let's not get all political on everyone.


    On another note, I think I'm going to camp out next year TWO weeks early. And when everyone asks why... Cause I want y'all to talk about me.

    He has a seizure disorder, which does not mean he is mentally challenged ( we all know you wanted to say retarded). I say this is proof of how great America is- he has the freedom to spend a week camping for a phone if he feels like it, and we have the right to criticize him or pat him on the back.
