By "beloved Military" I meant it as in even the most American thing that's ever American'd in the history of America thats loved by everyone in the country use the "god-less, communist Metric system". Not precisely what a white male GOP voter living in rural Mississippi that has a Support our Troops bumper sticker on his truck use or even likes in his daily life.
I'm guessing NASA is less liked, thats why i omitted calling them "beloved".
So your tone wasn't joking. Got it. I didn't realize I was in the presence of an expert on American history and society.
Don't let those generalizations get in the way of whatever point it is you think you're making.
