I picked up a book of over 3,000 random facts in Book a Million yesterday and turned to the military section. All you vets will be amused by this. In the Netherlands, widely lauded as the utopian model for secular progressivism everywhere, has problems with its military. Military personell are paid on an hourly basis and are given overtime, plus extra for unsavory duties like KP and latrine duty. It has been this way ever since the military was unionized. So tell me, how many of you retired and current (I've been there so I can use these terms lovingly and without a chops-busting) grunts, jarheads, swabbies, and flyboys have gotten overtime pay or extra for unsavory duties?
