Am I entitled? You bet I am
Am I entitled? Of course I am. I paid into Social Security for 55 years, and Medicare, too.
Are those entitlements? Certainly.
I worked for the state for 32 years, and I am entitled to my pension.
Am I now a lazy person? I can tell anyone that I no longer work 40 hours per week, but I do occupy my time with my bike, my music and my reading. I am finally entitled to that.
Don't take away my entitlements!
