    I won't bore y'all by saying what others have already said time and time again, that by simply looking at a person one cannot possibly ascertain whether they are or are not legitimately disabled. Instead I'll go back to the first few pages to point out something to those who were so incensed that individuals sporting Handicapped Parking Permits did not look disabled enought to be stealing our tax money.

    Pro-tip: Not everyone who qualifies for a Handicapped Parking Permit actually receives Disability Benefits.

    I don't. I have a Handicapped Parking Permit because of a lung condition that causes my blood oxygen level to drop perilously during even routine exertion, such as trying to walk further than 30-40 feet without resting. I have to use oxygen at night (and frequently during the day) to help keep my lungs from seizing. However, y'all will be thrilled to know that I am not receiving Disability payments. So please don't simply presume that anyone with a Handicapped Parking Permit is a blood-sucking disability fraud.

    Some of you are just so unkind, unsympathetic, judgmental and self-absorbed that I weep for the human race as a species. When fighting debilitating illness is considered a contemptible weakness while being a mean-spirited, narcissistic asshole is held up as something of which one should be proud and to which one should aspire, well, maybe the zombie apocalypse will end up being a good thing in the long run.

    Does that guy look disabled?

    Well he is. At one time his heart was functioning at 10% EF

    It was not very much fun to go through nor is it very much fun to live with.

    If you want to call it a death panel so be it. There are qualifications one must meet if they going into a heart transplant program though.

    I think you might want to learn about what is actually in ACA.. CLUE: a government takeover isn't.

    When the U.S. Army came up with some weird idea that soldiers would never again engage the enemy in combat with in over 300 yards, and they ended known range marksmanship and no longer trained soldiers to hit and kill what they were aiming at. They got it wrong and still haven't got it right.

    Have you ever read what the former Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Shoemaker said ? The Marine Corps has it right and the Army doesn't.

    If you want to debate combat PTSD, start a thread.

    so is the sole intent of the ACA to git ever one on the insurance ?
    even if they have to fine millions and cause premiums to rise to the point that millions more are forced onto government medical welfare programs like medicaid? Tell me oh wise one WTF is the REAL purpose of the ACA Bankrupt the nation, make ever one dependent on Obama? Give all of us free fentanyl lollipops instead of care? ? ?

    How do I believe that? because I have actually researched the topic. It is something you might want to try, and from places that will tell you more than just what you want to hear.
