    Competent doctors for one.

    Getting lawyers out of it would be another good way to work towards fixing it.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    So you think a guy can ride a motorycle for 1200 miles one way and back in a week and still be disabled? No wonder the country is in the ****ter and needing the debt ceiling raised

    Yes, because disability impacts a person in many variant ways, depending on the individual. This is one of the basic concepts of disability.

    Are you going to tell me what you meant by that comment or not?

    I knew two men who both lost an arm. One of them drove log truck, the other was on disability. Need I say more?

    What comment? There is NO ****ING way a guy can cover 2400 miles on a bike in 7 days and be disabled without lying on the application, especially if it is back, neck or legs

    What did you mean by that?

    You do not know that. Again, you have a limited understanding of disability, you are not a professional, and you have no access to their medical records.

    refreshing, 77% of the people in the poll think the system needs attention.

    I never said the person was committing fraud, I'm saying the entire system is a fraud.

    I could go down to the VA tomorrow and file a combat PTSD claim and I don't have to prove it and the VA can't prove I don't have it. And there are thousands of vets who have done it because it's FREE STUFF.

    I know more than a few who have done it and they asked why don't I do it ? It's free money.

    How many Americans have filed disability claims since Obama has become POTUS ?
