    Whenever some sh*thead republican or whoever even gets part of the word "entitle..."  they need to be relentlessly cut off and corrected.  Every single time.

    Entitlement means nothing other than a dog whistle word to get the "true believers" riled up.  

    It is no longer a functional word in this nation - it actually has a real meaning and that meaning has nothing to do with how SS and Medicare function.

    Even if Medicare wasn't an earned benefit - I doubt there are many out there who are actually using it thinking that by getting some basic level medical care that they have some kind of entitlement to it.  They are just trying to get help because they are sick.  But once again this all converges on a complete lack of empathy by the true "entitlement" crowd.  These assholes will never understand that looking for help when you're sick or not feeling well is NOT feeling entitled - it's probably one of the more basic instincts in the animal kingdom and you would think that as humans we could at least recognize that and support a basic system that tries to show some compassion toward that instinct.
