"they're still throwing away the second stage every single time."

Be patient - their next rocket (ITS) will be completely reusable. The 1st stage booster will land as with the Falcon 9 but the 2nd stage is designed to return from orbit and land too.

I think it's more likely that ITS (and cargo delivering derivatives) are operational before we get a working SABRE engine
