meat0918: Isn't cutting pay to the military one of the best ways to start a coup?
MonkeyDavid: It does remind me of a story (possibly true) my Dad once told me (he was an Air Force Colonel):The U.S. was taking over a base in South Korea. All the military branches were involved. There were already buildings and perfectly good quarters on the base.Air Force showed up an moved into the quarters. Even though there was still room, the Army showed up and built Quonset huts. The Marines showed up and lived in tents (even though it was winter). So maybe they do want it rough.(The Navy, of course, showed up and said "screw this, we'll just sleep on our ships.")

100 Watt Walrus: FTFA: As I talk to thousands of audiences, they want to know into whose neck do we put a boot next.Aside from the hyperbole of "thousands of audiences" and the gawdawful grammar, this guys is full of it. And if while I'm all for an armed forces ready to do its duty, being gung-ho to put your boot on someone's neck is very much the wrong way to view the world. That makes you a barbarian, not a soldier.
Jument: Someone once said, "when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys".

nipner: Love hearing this from some high ranking lifer who's already set with a good salary, lifetime pension, healthcare, etc... He got his, now close the gates on everyone else.
