meat0918: Isn't cutting pay to the military one of the best ways to start a coup?
Jument: Someone once said, "when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys".
Fusilier: This guys a real tool.
Bonzo_1116: Christ, what an asshole.
Dirty J1: I was a marine for 10 years, and I can say the pay and benefits for a private aren't really good to begin with. Making them lower isn't going to make the marine corps more disciplined or stronger. It's going to piss off the junior marines more than they are, and all the work done to get marines to drink less is going to count for shiat. Cuz with less money, all these poor bastards can afford to do in their time off Is drink until they forget how shorty their lives are.
mjohnson71: So what does the Sgt Major of the Marine Corps get paid a year?
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.

He got his, now close the gates on everyone else.The military should really be spending more money on lifestyle & budgeting classes for new recruits. No schools teach basic budgeting, checking account balancing, interest rate calculation, payday-loan scam awareness, and other necessary life skills anymore.
telejester: When I was in the Core, the soldiers didn't act this way.
