    your concept of fair has no rational relationship to reality though

    LOL-never in the service of the USA. Why are you changing the parameters now? were you one of those trade school enlistments who thinks the world owes him a perpetual living? So what do you do now?

    You have a great way of looking on the bright side of things. I hope things work out for you and it is very honorable for you to be thinking of how you will be a help to society while you are suffering from a heart condition.

    Similarly .. my cadaver (I don't have a heart condition or anything like that) will also be invaluable as I am an organ donor.. its sad that some don't want their body to be used for science or for the good of others after death.

    more personal attacks based on emotobabbling.

    I have an objective sense of fairness

    claiming that a group that makes 22% of the income but pays 40% of the income tax are not paying enough or "their fair share" is objectively insane

    Ah now you are trying to fling insults, classy dude

    And I'm fairly certain the National Institutes of Health and or SS has either benefited you or someone close to you.

    And if you don't like the system you can move to a third world nation with a costco approach.

    Them's the breaks bub.
