I'm starting to wonder if it's possible to have an intelligent discussion at this forum. Some people here seem fairly hostile to any opinion they don't understand or that may differ from their own.
Don't worry about it. The US is currently going through one of its regularly scheduled bouts of internal self-conflict, while Humpty Dumpty busily redefines selected words to mean just what he chooses it to mean - neither more nor less. Eventually this will all come to an end and sanity will prevail... for a while.

Meanwhile, grin and bear it.

In Canada, active members of the forces get superior medical benefits, just like civil servants, including expanded coverage for drugs dental etc.
As do persons in prison.
