The military has 234 golf courses and 963 generals and admirals. I am not drawing a comparison between these two facts, but they are among several in this disdainful article in Salon on the military. Wait, according to this, AlterNet is funded by good old George Soros. Umm, ax meet grinder. My experience with the military, with the occasional exception, is that the folks, from the top commander to an E-1, have a feeling of less entitlement than many in society.
