Become a doctor, a lawyer, a scientist, or any number of professions, then you tell me how much courage, discipline, loyalty and intelligence any law enforcement/military personnel has in comparison.

Be proud of who you are and your job (everybody should be, from businessmen to doctors, to police officers to lawyers, to marine biologists and so on), but to claim you have specific traits (discipline, intelligence, courage, etc, stated in that quote) based on your chosen job interest, is ridiculous, your job means as much as a computer science technician or someone who studies mammals for a living, which is just another job, of which every has an important role to play in keeping our society going as it is.

Keep in mind, I know you didn't "claim" to have these things over others, however you said you live your life on that metaphor, which did state it, and I just want to make that part clear and that it is false and quite silly to claim, if you were (going by the quote, I could be way off at 1:30 AM).
