a dysgenic effect participant
Welfare and entitlements have been so thoroughly ground into our culture that getting rid of them seems ludicrous. I have several coworkers who are retired non-combat military and 100% disabled and still participate in adult sports leagues. 100% gets them a check, no property tax, discounted utilities and car registration, and who knows how much other stuff. It is an area of contention between the younger combat vets and the retirees who play the system. For me 100% is "can't work" not 4 hours of overtime and the hit the basketball court every day then twice a year walk into the the VA with a cane and a limp.I am unsure why taxpayers are forced into paying for either one.
