Ever wake up and have a thought in your head that came from nowhere and was 100% full mentally disabled? Yup, I did today.

Imagine, Card-check passed and due to the silly way that the law is written, and a few activists in the army, all enlisted personnel become union members.

I could see it now:
"Hey private, don't mop that floor, you will be taking away another soldiers job" a union rep.
"That's a negative Captain, we refuse to man the perimeter until we have received that mandatory recovery time between shifts" a sleepy soldier.
"We are having a hard time fighting this war with all the soldiers on strike. It is simply unreasonable for them to demand a 7.34% yearly raise" a general, speaking to a reporter.

Discuss, and let the straw men flow

If you switched that out with a C-141 C-5 Pilot, I could almost imagine that if I closed my eyes real tight.

This is one of the reasons why I love liberals cite europe as a precedent for things we should do... "EUROPE DOES = MUST BE GOOD"

I don't recall which country it is, but there is/was a European country that had a unionized military.

That's all I can contribute.  Someone will be along to narrow down who it was.

ETA:  Netherlands

Hell f@#$ no.  First Marine who tries that, there's a cell in the brig with his name on it.

Thats how the Reds tried it right after the Revolution. The enlisted guys could vote on an officers orders and countermand him. They found it didn't work very well and reverted back pretty quick.
