Entitlement is being used as a description of benfits, NOT the same meaning as welfare, unemplyment etc...
after paying your dues or serving in the military, you are granted these benefits as part of your service agreement thus, you are "entitled" to receive the bennies.
it is NOT an entitlement in the sense of welfare. the OP is just trolling and trying to stir the pot so to speak.
