What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.

Many beneficiaries are terminally-illl; about 1-in-5 male and 1-in-6 female beneficiaries die within five years of receiving benefits. Literally every day, I see people with significant disabilities who have been denied benefits.
