    Hence a lot of Boomers going onto disability roles that were "chasers"...you know...those despicable folks that worked shifts on assembly mines or in coal mines. Not cool performance driven folk like yourself.
    So you are saying they were too stupid to see what was coming? How is that anyone's fault but their own? Most would call that poor planning.

    Yes...they are sooo stupid for not seeing economic trends 35 or so years ahead of time.

    I hope you're making billions with all the foresight you take for granted. I work with some brilliant well compensated people and they don't claim the ability to predict economic trends that far in advance.

I say let them have at it. We're better off paying them to stay in the sidelines than treating whatever psychological problem they have that makes them too damned lazy to work a real job. I just hope the rich can continue paying them their benefits.
    And what about the people who are ACTUALLY disabled. My dad is, and we get hardly any money from his check, and my sister is turning 18 in a few weeks, and we are losing the 800 bucks that we would get from her as a dependent. Which sucks because now we have to get help from family to be able to eat. And we're too "rich" for food stamps apparently, living on this is just real ****ty.

    On the right it seems like the distinction between abusing a social safety net has seriously blurred with folks really depend on social safety nets.

    I guess the propaganda has turned one into the other.

    So, what's the plan? It seems "you" have learned that dependence on the actions of someone else is leaving you in a bad situation.

    With 19,210 posts to your credit, perhaps "you" could discover how to make money with "your" time on the internet, rather than spreading "your" opinion about how "you" view things.

    I'd like to see some statistics on how much is spent on 'scammers' as compared to how much is spent on corporate welfare, invading other countries etc. My guess is that it is far, far less.

    The people who genuinely need it should not have to suffer because a minority are scamming.

    I'm going to school, that's my plan. The families plan is to get into a house with a lower payment by the end of summer. Seriously, stop judging, I'm just saying that there are people who really need this stuff, and it's not all party hats, and hand jobs.
