No twisting necessary. He has taken advantage of the benefits of government employment for 38 years, is now enjoying the benefits of governement retirement, and government sponsored insurance, all the while complaining that anyone else is not "earning" their benefits, but being given entitlements. It doesn't surprise me that you fail to see it. Your mindset appears to be pretty much the same. You apply a whole different set of rules to yourself than you do to others.
Back breaking labor? Extreme conditions? Quite the dramatic flair you have there.
