    So you mean that in a population that keeps on growing, it's unusual to see the # of people who are disabled grow larger?

    Are people gaming the system? Oh, yeah. More than before? Difficult to say.

    People with disabilities have always had a tremendously difficult time finding employment or equal employment for jobs in which they are equally qualified. I don't believe anyone would dispute that. In hard times people with disabilities are more likely to get the ax. In hard times it is even more difficult than it usually is for people with disabilities to find employment.

    More than a few former employees who have lost their jobs, are looking for any gainful employment these days. In their previous job people with disabilities probably were working in positions that were negatively impacted by their disability. Now, that they are looking for work it is not as easy finding that niche in a new job possibility.

    America is older. A lot of people who had planned to retire cannot. If you live long enough you are going to have a disability. People don't plan for that. We all know that many companies let older workers go over younger workers because the older workers have better benefits and higher salaries. This practice has put a quite a number of older workers, many who have acquired age related disabilities, out of work. Try finding a gainful job in a hard recession when you are over 50, disabled, female and non-white. I can't imagine how tough that is.

    Yeah, disability claims are up and it is not surprising at all. Given the demographics and the economy we should be surprised if the numbers didn't go up! Are people gaming the system? Sure. Probably not as much as you think, however.

    That's because being a tub of lard is a disability.

    Probably so. When good Americans see that an anti-American government such as Obama's steals from decent people and rewards the non-deserving simply because they vote for him, all rules go out the window and decent people correctly conclude that they deserve that money more than the Obama supporters.

    This is also why so many people are moving to avoid paying taxes. Decent, honest Americans do not want their tax dollars going to Liberal programs designed to steal from Americans for Liberal purposes. That is why so many Americans are leaving California, which considers spending ten billion per year on illegal aliens a valid expenditure. Who would want their tax money to be used by Liberals to support illegals from Mexico? Talk about destructive to America.

    First off, tax cheats are tax cheats and shouldn't be glorified. Secondly, the government has been taking from good Americans and giving to non-deserving entities simply because they donate to their party for quite some time. Look at all the laws which protect corporations, destroy competition, solidify the aristocracy. This ain't new, Obama didn't start it; just continuing the proud tradition of uncontrolled government growth and protecting the privileged elite.

    You're not saying that you fail to realize record numbers of people don't want their money to go to Obama's self-serving programs are you?

    I understand that people may not like it; but it doesn't mean they're anything other than tax cheats.

    Do you understand that an anti-American government like Obama's can create what you refer to as "tax cheats" from decent Americans?

    I understand that an "anti-American government like Obama's" didn't start with Obama. And how many of y'all bitched when government closed down free market capitalism in favor of the Corporate State? Or engaged in infinity war and used such to excuse gross expansions of government against the rights and liberties of the individual? Oh, now there are social programs and you don't want to pay for it...now it's anti-American? Please. We're in this state because of blind partisan idiots who cannot understand the systematic dynamics the government has been acting through for decades now to rob Americans of their freedom, of their liberty, of their ability to interact and control the government.

    No, this new line of tax cheats are just wimpy ass penny-pinchers who won't do anything to actually solve a problem, pretend they can fund whatever they care for, and do nothing to properly control and restrain the government. You should all pay, you should all pay in full, and you should understand the ultimate reason as to why your paying so much is because of your own damned stupidity and laziness.

    Understand that when you become so far afield of American values and traditions as today's present field of freakish, loudmouth, America hating Obama supporters, you deserve nothing from Americans who work hard for their money.
