This is why I don't listen to white People talk about being Patriotic and how much the love the military. They only love the military when it's convenient for them.

wrote last week about Delta Air Lines tweaking its boarding procedures. Diamond Medallion members (the highest-ranking elite status) no longer may board with First Class and Delta One cabins. Instead, they were demoted to their own boarding zone — right after First Class and Delta One.

I assumed some people would be upset — and they were.

But a different boarding group altogether is what sparked most of the controversy.

Why Should Active Duty U.S. Military Get to Board First?!
Honestly, I thought the post’s Comments section would be filled with Diamonds complaining about Delta stabbing them in the back — and non-Diamonds punching their buttons in response. There was very little of that.

But I was surprised by commenters taking umbrage with active duty United States military members getting the top boarding zone for Delta flights.

Then don't fly Spirit.  Delta will leave you too.  Drag your butt down the ramp if you want to.
