re: How does the Poli board feel about military disability?


Unfortunately it is often abused. I've seen many an overweight female get Med boarded for leg / back / stress fracture and get some level of disability. Still wouldn't cut it though because better some people slide through with what they don't deserve than have deserving combat wounded vets get shorted.

That's such a pathetic argument.

I thought we were talking about disability. If anyone denies that some people take advantage of it they're denying the truth. I'm not against disability, I just wish people didn't take advantage of it so it could go to the people that truly deserve it. Speaking out about his doesn't mean I'm not patriotic.



Then tell us how you feel about all the public assistance programs that are bleeding our country dry....

Do you have the same opinion of those programs?

A little news flash, not all people that don't serve are pathetic. It's not my fault that I came up with a private education and got a college scholarship to play a sport. That isn't my fault that I took advantage of an opportunity to play college hockey instead of serving my country.




It may not have been your fault, but it was your choice.....

Do you deserve that scholly subsidized by the taxpayer that was "earned" by being good at interpretive dance?

Anymore than that guy earned a benefit that a certified medical professional declares he is entitled to?




You sound like a jealous bitch...whining saying things like pathetic, and news flash...I'm sure your degree program was law

I basically asked him that question with no response at all. He is without a doubt scaling the lows of OTD at a rapid pace.

Hockey is a military service disqualifier?
Really?

he is nothing more than a "wannabe" a want, at best. He needs to go back to his parents basement where he belongs and let the adults talk. At least a want is an adult.

He is arguing that the system is being abused by some people. He isn't saying that people who have a legitimate disability shouldn't get care and support.

Also, there are plenty of shitty people who join the military. Simply serving in the military does not make you a better person or a better American than those who do not serve.

Have you served? Not a put down. Not a rhetorical. Just a question.

Trauma affects people.

Great. Good thing the case I mentioned has nothing to do with trauma, but a 'breathing issue' that he admitted is a joke... and he puffs a couple packs a day.

Making an observation (and others are making it too) that people take advantage of disability is not a reach, it's truth.

What's funny is I'm met by people making paralyzing statements like "did you serve" as if that has anything to do with recognizing that some people take advantage of military disability. On the flip side, some people don't get enough of it because of the people that are taking advantage of it.

No, I haven't served. I'm not saying that trauma does not affect people. I was just agreeing with mograyback that there is probably some abuse in the system.

From your previous posts, it seems that you think that serving in the military automatically makes you a better person and a better American than someone who doesn't serve. I don't think that is true at all.

You know that how?
A copy of his service records?
A copy of his deployment history?

How do you know?

I doubt he ever made it past thirds string in college. He couldn't keep a Maple Leaf in check, let alone one of the Sedin twins...





FYI for those who don't watch Hockey... The Leafs are analogous to the Chicago Cubs.

The mental circle jerk you are saying is that:

A. Guy is a lazy pos that smokes

B. You believe that the lazy pos knows more than the doctor who granted him his disability

C. Smoking may have nothing to do with his breathing problem (it wouldn't with apnia), but you will assert that it is germaine to the argument, or his disability


Your logic is mesmerizing

This is just getttin' nuts man, you guys need to get over this complex you have towards me, and anyone who isn't totally in step with your beliefs.

Bottom line: is military disability not taken advantage of? Answering 'no' is not being honest. It's taking from the people that really deserve it.

And how do I know about his case?

Because I worked with him for 2 years, he talked about it. He was somehow proud that he got this large sum of money undeservingly. It had to do with the climate over there messing with his nose somehow, but the guy played mens league hockey, lived an active life, smoked a couple packs a day, boozed hard... but the American taxpayer was responsible for giving him a large sum of money every month. The guy laughed about this.. he thought it was funny. He knew he had cheated the system.

Nah, your lack of comprehension is mesmerizing.

The guy laughed about it... not just once or twice either. It was something he brought to our attention semi-regularly.

of course there is, but it is up to the professionals to make that call, not some liberal hack who just got out of his Maple Leafs onesie and who I'm sure Terry Fox could out skate on the ice.

Haha, well at least you know who the Sedins are and that they're homos.

But you know nothing about hockey, we don't have 'strings'. It's not football. It's totally different. All 4 lines play regularly in most games, each with a different role and purpose. You're clueless.

And I played juniors in Ontario, one of 3 Americans on my team.. so yeah, I think I can keep a 'maple leaf' in check. Also a huge percentage of college hockey is Canadiens. Thanks for stopping by though.
