Having been on Social Security Disability, and believe me it stinks as it just barely pays the bills, I made a determination, even against the advice of my doctors and the social workers, to go back to work.

The problem is that like any government program there are going to be people who are willing to find the loopholes and abuse the system. I do not like said people nor, do I think that there is a lot of accountability in that program. Too many of the programs are designed with the best of intentions to help people, yet they are either over taxed, or abused heavily by people who can very well do for themselves.

The only way that they have kept this system going, is by raising the bar steadily, the problem is that they do not cut the people that are just under the bar. So as it goes if one person goes on disability with one problem when the raise the bar, someone else with the same problem can not get such, but the person on it, gets to remain on it, and that need to change. There has to be a way to change that sort of solution, and allow for the government to help those with disabilities get back to work, and more companies need to take advantage of such.

For the record, I worked till the day I could no longer, and then I took my doctors advice and applied for such, now that I am healthy enough to go back to work, I started to look for a job, so I can get off of the disability and get back to earning my way through life. Times are tough, but funny, how I seem to be in demand and everyone who I applied to, is calling me in for an interview.

Yeah, I guess Lexus is one of their favorites cars, but the title of the vehicle would show another person as the owner. The low quality home fits well when an inspector comes to verify no fraud.

its not funny or peculiar that big corps are wooing you... hell they are in it for the money & perks and tax incentives that hiring you would do to the corps bottom line

how long would it be until your office cubicle in the sunlight was transformed into a basement hole-in-the-ground kind of copymachine operator function, to die or voluntarily cut loose from the ''advantageous' position you once had.

get real.... know your enemy, and their tactics & strategies

Obviously the Social Security system should not be funded out of the tax payer revenues. Obviously the Social Security system should be funded using "confetti" printed into existence by the Federal Reserve Bank. Only then will the economy get out of its recession. This process is called "Quantitative Easing" and is nothing new in the realms of money management. In other words only by being socialist are we going to have a capitaist system that is prosperous. In deed it is because of the lack of socialism that the capitalist system is collapsing into recession.


LOL! it doesn't get much more ridiculous than that statement...

Just FYI Social security is not funded with taxpayer money it is funded but printing/borrowing as you claim it should be. Taxpayer money only pays in the interest on the money printed and then borrowed to pay for these things. The problem with your completely uninformed and ridiculous idea is that printing money from nothing to fund socialist programs fund illegal wars and bail out politically;y connected elite corps is what in fact debases the currency and has led us to this disaster. Get a clue instead of repeating Marxist talking points rhetoric!
