    You and I have entirely different definitions of "demonstrates." You have demonstrated nothing at all.

    Look, "the Daily Mail says so" isn't proof of anything to me. I've seen how often they make things up, distort the truth, etc. Sorry if this bothers you.

    How much are FBI Special Agents paid?
    Special Agent trainees at the FBI Academy are paid as GS-10, step 1 ($43,441) plus the Quantico, VA locality adjustment (17.50%) during their time at the FBI Academy. This equates to $51,043 on an annualized basis (or $1,963 per each two-week pay period).

    Newly assigned Special Agents are paid as GS-10, step 1 ($43,441) plus locality pay and availability pay. Locality pay (which ranges from 12.5% to 28.7% of base salary depending upon office assignment) is additional compensation to account for differences in the labor market between different areas. Availability pay is a 25% increase in adjusted salary (base salary + locality pay) for all Special Agents due to their requirement to average a 50-hour work week over the course of the year. Thus, with the locality and availability pay adjustments, new Special Agents in their first Field Offices earn between $61,100 and $69,900, depending upon the region of the country to which they are assigned.

    New Special Agents assigned to certain designated high-cost offices (New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Washington D.C., Boston and Newark) may also be paid a one-time relocation bonus of approximately $22,000 to help offset higher real estate and living costs. In order to qualify for the relocation bonus, new Special Agents must be assigned to one of the designated high-cost offices and they must be moving from a lower cost area to a different geographical area with a higher cost of living.

    For example, a new Agent assigned to Washington, D.C. would make a base salary of $43,441 (GS-10, step 1 on the Law Enforcement Officers' salary table) + locality pay of $7,602 (based on Washington, D.C.'s locality adjustment of 17.5%) + availability pay of $12,761 (25% of base + locality) for a total salary of $63,804 their first year. If the new Special Agent qualified for the relocation bonus (e.g., moving from Atlanta to Washington, D.C.), they would also receive a one-time payment of approximately $22,000.
    So do we have any actual indication that these guys are actually paid this?

    It's because Diogenes actually knows the meaning of the word.

    When hired do they swear allegiance to Obamacare?

    "asserts" Your post asserts not demonstrates. If it "demonstrated", it would be an example which allowed the readers to see for themselves the truth of the matter.
    For example:
    "He's mean," is an assertion.
    "He kicked kittens," is a demonstration.
    I may be wrong.

    Uh, no, I was just supporting your claim that FBI agents start at GS-10 and the information I posted was copied from the FBI website. So, yes, the FBI guys get the salary I posted. Now, do these new consumer cops get the same pay? I doth not know.

    Interestingly, depending on the location, cops are paid twice as much as FBI agents. Go figure.

    The US military has more than 1 millions members.
    Mr. Martosko is sensationalizing when he refers to these 86 folks as an "army."
    I may be wrong.

    I know, according to you we can never bring Hitler up. We can never learn from history, it's a huge no no.
