Collecting Disability Becomes
A Career Choice For Men

Creators Syndicate, by Michael Barone

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/1/2012 6:20:19 AM

Americans are very generous to people with disabilities. Since passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act in 1990, millions of public and private dollars have been spent on curb cuts, bus lifts and special elevators. The idea has been to enable people with disabilities to live and work with the same ease as others, as they make their way forward in life. I feel sure the large majority of Americans are pleased that we are doing this. But there is another federal program for people with disabilities that has had an unhappier effect.

Thats the game where I work. If you get mad at the boss or are about to be fired, put in for a fake disability. The employee doctor does her best catching them, but it is an uphill battle.
Fake PTSD is another big one. They brag about the money they are dragging in. One guy said the military doctor told him "fake it till you make it."

Getting on disability is like winning the lottery for a lot of the recipients. This program is abused as much as the Earned Income Tax credit. Both should be stopped. The parasites and deadbeats have ruined these Democrat freebies.

Trouble is, with the great economy of our Dear Leader(US), for middle aged men in their 50´s, finding them out of a job and with little prospects in sight (how many times I was asked by some snot nose 30 something, "don´t you feel overqualified for this job?"), disability sounds like a decent out.

I even seriously considered it a year ago.

It´s not like as if you make a lot of money on SSI, and there are pretty strict work restrictions. I don´t think many people are turning to it unless they are desperate. Besides, the people I know, had to wait a year after going out on disability before applying for SS disability. And their long-term disability at work doesn´t necessarily last that long.

I used to work in a low income, low education area. It was amazing the number of work-age men walking around with canes. In these areas, if someone is successful in getting some kind of government aid, a whole lot of the others try to get the same thing, often successfully. Obama and the dems are keying in on this phenomenon to develop their permanent underclass of subservient voters.

Combine ssi with food stamps, a rent subsidy, or a government propped up mortgage and it´s a living. As for work restrictions, if so strict, why do ssi rolls burgeon? Barone is right, and it´s confirmed by human nature that once people draw disability for a year or so their career is likely over. Those who don´t work again won´t be counted as unemployed in the obama administration propaganda mInistry jobs reports. That´s a win win for the little marxist.

Here´s a thought. The liberal Democrats want to legalize the up to 20 million illegal alien population and give them access to government programs like social security disability. Most illegal aliens now do not have access to such programs unless they falsely claim to be US citizens which some do.

The illegal alien population consists mainly of poor generally uneducated people who currently have little option but to accept hard low paying jobs when they can find them.

Once legalized and eligible for programs like social security disability and with human nature being what it is, you can bet that a huge number of those people will be taking a shot at getting on long term disability.

With most claiming that they can´t speak English during the adjudication process, represented by attorneys who know how to tailor the claims to meet the adjudication standard for approval of the claims, trying to only allow deserving individuals to end up with a pot of disability money will be like trying to untangle a mass of spaghetti.

In my long career as an insurance agent I got to see plenty of disability claims related to workers compensation insurance.

Plenty of fraud happens on the WC disability side. Everything from the guy who just happens to hurt himself before deer season opens. He only wants a few weeks off. The worst ones are the ones claiming some sort of back injury. They are looking for long term disabilty or, at the least, a hefty lump sum settlement.

And naturally, there are hordes of ambulance-chasing attorneys offering their services to these poor ´victims´. They advertise on Atlanta TV 24/7.

It takes at least a year to start collecting disability from SSI. I always thought my husband went overboard buying insurance through his work and then he became ill last July and his short term and then long term disability took care of us and then some until he passed two months later. I can´t imagine trying to apply for benefits with the government while he was in the hospital -- I wouldn´t have been able to pay any bills.

If your company offers additional disability coverage, take it. You never know what tomorrow will bring.

Kathleen Sebelius’s Resignation Hands
Republicans A Golden Opportunity

Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, and Rachel Maddow is right to not be happy about it, not one little bit. For once, I completely agree with Maddow’s analysis. This surprise resignation presents Republicans with an unexpected opportunity to refocus the conversation on Obamacare’s negatives, offers a chance to force vulnerable Senate Democrats to take a hard vote on Obamacare six months before the midterms, and serves to disrupt what had been a positive few days of media spin for the health care law into another conversation about its many failings. About a month ago, in a conversation with a Senate Democratic

Former 5th District U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Ruston, who resigned abruptly last summer to take a job in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Cabinet, said he won’t rule out a run for his old job next fall. Alexander, who won six terms in the U.S. House beginning with the 2002 election, said he has been saddened by the scandal that has rocked his successor, U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, and the 5th District. “I would never say anything is off of the table,” Alexander, Jindal’s secretary for veterans affairs, told The News-Star this morning. “If I felt like the people of Louisiana and the

Democratic Senate Prospects

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

A plane crash at Smolensk in Russia four years ago wiped out the Warsaw leadership. It used to be seen as an accident. Now, after Putin’s games in Ukraine, people aren’t so sure. Four years ago this week, Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia where he was flying to honor the 22,000 Polish officers, lawyers, priests and professors slaughtered there by the Soviets 70 years before. Ninety-five other military, political and public figures including his wife died on that plane. One of the more heartbreaking details to emerge was that First

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Times

Court against his wife Heather. The hands receiving that information belonged to a gossip columnist for the Washington Post, who made the “informed decision” to report on it. Later in the day Heather, who is also a lobbyist, informed the Post the text of her counter-suit. It published a follow-up. The documents, which you can read below, did

President Obama‘s former body man Reggie Love is — ahem — loving life. Specifically, life outside the White House. Thursday, The Mirror spotted him at lunch, dining al fresco at BLT Steak, a short sprint from the White House. If the 32-year-old was ever a tense, stressed out aide in a suit, you wouldn’t know it. He was relaxed, at ease, and sipping lemonade as he chatted away with what looked to be a longtime female friend, possibly a former coworker. So, of course, The Mirror listened in.

President Obama met privately Thursday with Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, amid accusations by her GOP opponent that she’s afraid to be seen in public with the president. A White House aide said Mr. Obama “visited briefly” with Ms. Davis following his remarks at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. The meeting took place after reporters traveling with Mr. Obama had been moved into vans, so they didn’t witness the meeting. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, the Republican nominee for governor, has publicly dared Ms. Davis to be

In his Senate Foreign Relations Committee testimony last week, Secretary of State John Kerry blamed Israel for the breakdown in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. He argued that an Israeli announcement of 700 new housing units for a neighborhood in Jerusalem were what did in the talks. “Poof, that was sort of the moment,” Kerry said. “We find ourselves where we are.” This is an amazing claim, especially when the housing units are not in a settlement—but are in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, in a location that every Israeli and every Palestinian knows will be part of Israel in

You’ve heard a lot of discussion of how many of those who signed up for Obamacare exchanges were previously uninsured, and how many had insurance, had their plan canceled, and had to sign up for a new one. Express Scripts is a giant company (Fortune 100) that manages pharmacies and prescription drug processing. They’ve got some new data to share on how their customers are purchasing or obtaining prescription drugs: Unlike medical claims that can take several months to process, pharmacy claims adjudicate in real time.

It has long been recognized that “liberal” and “progressive” are misnomers when it comes to describing American leftists in the 21st Century. They may fancy themselves as forward-thinking but they go back eighty or so years whenever it’s time to craft economic policy and their racial politics gaze backward a half century. Most of the time. At the Civil Rights Summit in Austin this week, there were some prominent Democrats who surveyed the landscape and admitted that things are, in fact, much different now than they were in the early 1960s.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
