He had legit problems that probably could have been helped with a legit A1 diagnosis and some therapy. Instead he too readily accepted a label, psych drugs, and disability.

Although to be fair to you I don't know what you're actually proposing. I'm guessing that you think entitlement programs should be massively overhauled and gutted to prevent taxpayer's money from being spent on "parasites," but in actuality you don't seem to be suggesting anything, just ranting about people who you're judging without knowing.
So that story you told about the girl who has been in and out of rehab and been to the ICU dozens of times -- awfully detailed account there. It sounds to me like the vast majority of those details are presumptions based on the fact that you judge people who are in desperate need of help. You're backing up your opinion with cherry picked evidence that you see because it supports your own conclusion.
EDIT: just read your other post about veterans. I appreciate you answering my question, but one more example of you acting like you have a superhuman ability to read minds and understand human behavior. I think that's what angers me about your statements. You come off as somebody that I really wouldn't want around me if I were in need of help.

A working class hero is something to be
I see people like this daily. You see me as some heartless judgemental evil bastard. I work with a team of people that help people escape from the stronglehold of our 'helping' society. You think those are the occasional onesy-twosey accounts? Sorry...not even close. I wish it were. Thats the comical part. You defend a system that I view as complicit in CREATING the problem and I spend about 90 hours a week trying to help people escape that system. And with a fair amount of success.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Well, I'm a senior at 70 but I don't draw Social Security and never will. I figure I'm supporting at least five parasites through the government. So, for the parasites here, you're free to thank me.
