"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
I could quote some more areas where it says disability is not well defined, but I think I have proven my point.There's no diagnosis called disability. You don't go to the doctor and the doctor says, "We've run the tests and it looks like you have disability." It's squishy enough that you can end up with one person with high blood pressure who is labeled disabled and another who is not.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

73% lose their jobs because they either don't show up, show up later, or argue with their boss (probably about having to actually do something to earn their paycheck).. At one
welfare-to-work program, Project Match in Chicago, researchers found that 46 percent of the program clients lost their
first job by three months, 60 percent by six months, and 73 percent by twelve months (Berg, Olson and Conrad 1992).
This poor job retention is not due primarily to inadequate technical or "hard" skills. Welfare recipients
generally lose jobs because of problems with absenteeism and punctuality, or because of conflicts with supervisors and
co-workers (Berg, Olson and Conrad 1992; Quint and Musick 1994). The one "hard skills" deficiency that is frequently
mentioned is problems in running a cash register.
Job retention problems occur in part because many welfare recipients find the circumstances of low-wage jobs
to be unfamiliar. The usual daily activities of an unemployed welfare recipient are comprised of child care and home
care, with no supervisors or co-workers to accommodate, and with the welfare recipient controlling her own schedule.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Though, how you came to the stupid conclusion that it illustrates the problem of a "lack of a tight ship", whatever that means, is beyond me.
I mean, really? Disability isn't something that is well defined? THAT'S what you got from the article?
You clearly skimmed over it with the same typical conservative blinders I spoke of earlier, where you only read the portion you want to read and ignore everything else.
