EXography: Many disability
recipients admit they could work

Washington Examiner, by Luke Rosiak

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 7/30/2013 11:43:02 AM

Recipients of federal disability checks often admit that they are capable of working but cannot or will not find a job, that those closest to them tell them they should be working, and that working to get off the disability rolls is not among their goals. More baffling, most have never received significant medical treatment and not seen a doctor about their condition in the last year, even though medical problems are the official reason they don´t work. Those who acknowledge they´re on disability because they can´t find a job say they make little effort

When I am not working I am antsy. I can´t imagine a life of just sitting around watching daytime TV (shudder).

I attended a focus group on cancer survivors and was appalled at two of the participants. Both had breast cancer, as I did. One woman who did radiation, went out on disability, as you can legally do, and she stalled going back to work, as she said she could not physically work so soon after radiation. She then went back to work and pushed them until she got permanent disability; she says she loves playing tennis and golf. I continued to work during the time of my radiation, and had them schedule it over my lunch hour. I was a dental hygienist, and other than being tired, I had no problem. The other woman was out for almost a year after her chemo, and she collected disability. She says they would not give her permanent disability, and she has not gone back to work for two years, as she says she is just too tired. What is wrong with these people. We are far to lenient on giving out disability, and this country cannot afford it.

I drive by a Disability office every day during my 38 mile commute. To my job. There is a line of seemingly able people out the door and around the building. Most are not old. Decent cars in the parking lot. This does not surprise me. How about a follow up story on how many on disability receive yet other forms of gov´t assistance. SSI is just another county in the welfare state.

While there are people on disability who need to be on it, many people on it don´t need or deserve it any more than some working people who hold down steady jobs despite their disabilities.
These "disabled" aren´t sitting around watching television, #1. The stories vary, but the result is the same whether it´s playing golf and tennis or taking "road trips" to enjoy a few days playing their favorite games at casino hotels. Many are doing whatever they "love" doing, as #2 has said, and it´s doubtful that a thought ever crosses their minds that the hard work of others is providing their means of enjoyment.

When it comes to disability there´s just all kinds of anecdotal evidence about able bodied people cheating but according to the various investigators I´ve known over the years, REAL evidence is difficult to obtain.

The first problem is most disabilities are invisible, and the fact you might like tennis doesn´t mean you can do it well, or for long, disabled or not. Have you seen the muscles on those Williams women? They been pumping iron ~ most of us can´t begin to compete against them. Still, either one could be permanently and totally disabled while winning a match. A blown artery could do it. You wouldn´t see a thing.

Then there are those who suffer various degrees of depression ~ worse, those who suffer various degrees of schizophrenia. Then there are the bi-polar folks who see-saw between disability on meds that make them behave fairly normally, or off the meds so they can work until they go fritz fritz fritz fizzle spitz

This is why the professional investigators go after the DOCTORS who falsely diagnose real disabilities for patients who don´t have disabilities. Just one doctor can turn loose thousands of people on the disability rolls!

I am disabled. My doctors tell me I am done.

In a nutshell I would dearly love to go back to work if I was able. The boredom is broken up by the realities of my shortcomings. Dressing and even toilet use are a whole new challenge. I wouldn´t wish this on anyone. Financially it is an abyss, we are living on a small percentage of what we used to make and every little extra bit seems to go to medical needs. In a few years I can take early retirement, that will help.

The worst part is the feeling that one is useless.I really pity those who are already depressed. Imagine the pit they are trying to climb out of!

Ok, flame away folks. It can´t hurt me any deeper than I already inflict on myself.

Not to mention Workman´s Comp. It´s hard to get disability now, so it´s not rational for a person to try to get off it for a job that may vanish. It´s rational to work under the table, (leaving aside moral issues).

#10 Just three years ago this month I went through periods of blindness that lasted for months ~ sure, I could see, more or less, but I couldn´t move my eyes well and there were these medications..... took a couple more years to regain confidence in going up and down stairs. 3D comes back slowly.

Worst part was to come ~ inactivity ~ and blindness can make you very inactive ~ raises your blood pressure to dangerous levels.

It creeps up on you ~ make sure you get checked for blood pressure often and that your doctor prescribe you the medications necessary to bring it under control.

Much of your depression will go away as your blood pressure drops to ´normal´ ~ actually your ´new normal´ ~

Good luck with your adjustment ~ you can do it. Look, I´m back on the net and with something less than 500% blow up on the text.

What I don´t understand is who decides who gets and doesn´t get disabiity because it rarely makes sense. I have a family member who has MS so severe that she can hardly walk or see, and she´s incapable of remembering what she had for breakfast as her short term memory is shot. She´s incapable of completing any task because she can no longer focus.

Even with all of these severe symptoms and a well known doctor´s recommendation she was turned down for SS disability twice. Meanwhile, my husband´s company has been dealing with an obvious worker´s comp fraud, who when the worker´s comp ran out he applied and received SS disability. They actually hired a detective who had proof of fraud and yet he´s still collecting payments. It´s so frustrating.

As a program to help get one through the first 1-2 years, it is needed. Like all other welfares handed out, they become permanent for all the wrong reasons. Congress should reevaluate these various programs and set time limits. Government was not meant to ´support´ so many of our population for their whole lives.

Maybe it´s time to stop pretending, take welfare, unemployment, and disability and merge them all and say, "here, if you´re not working, you get $200 per week and more if you have dependents". No questions asked, except it´s cut in half if you make more than $200/week working, and cut off entirely if you make $400/week, or thereabouts.

Given the lack of jobs, there´s probably nowhere for a lot of people to go. Alternatively guarantee everyone who wants one a job that pays at least $250/week or more.

Been the dream of the socialists for decades, maybe centuries, and heck, we´re already spending the money.

Too bad we can´t draft them and send them to Afghanistan, heck not even in the military just plain send them to Afghanistan, cost of living has to be cheaper there, ...

Try not to put those on SSD in the same group as welfare mothers. It´s not easy to get disability. I see people that get turned down until they get an attorney who gets a minimum of 25% of their back pay because they have been trying for years. What is the deal with Everybody gets turned down twice and you have to appeal ? It´s as though attorneys and the gov work together. I had a friend that was in so much pain that the SS doctor said they needed to be on disability and they were turned down until they obtained an attorney. Nobody is getting rich on any form of SSDI or worker´s comp.

CIA interrogation report

The Senate Intelligence Committee voted Thursday to make public a long-awaited report that concludes that the CIA’s use of brutal interrogation measures did not produce valuable intelligence and that the agency repeatedly misled government officials about the severity and success of the program. The decision, opposed by three Republicans on the panel, means that the findings will be sent to the White House and the CIA, putting the agency in the awkward position of having to declassify a document that delivers a scathing verdict on one of the most controversial periods in its history.

Japan recently turned over to the United States enough weapons-grade nuclear material to make dozens of nuclear bombs. This was one of President Barack Obama’s few foreign policy “successes,” as part of his nuclear-disarmament initiative. But his foreign-policy successes may be more dangerous than his “failures.” Back in 2005, Senator Barack Obama urged the Ukrainians to drastically reduce their conventional weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles and tons of ammunition. Ukraine had already rid itself of nuclear missiles, left over from the days when it had been part of the Soviet Union. Would Vladimir Putin have sent Russian troops so boldly into Ukraine

After Travon Martin was killed, President Obama interjected himself into the controversy by saying, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." His critics picked up with that statement and use it to refer to any criminal incident involving black youths. The mainstream media, ever-supportive of Obama, neglects to publicize any such event and only local newspapers are reporting the increasing meaningless and violent attacks against white victims. It may be unfair to equate these miscreants as children of Obama, who does have two lovely daughters, but he has only himself to blame for ignoring the harm his

In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth with sin and God intended to wipe them all out. Noah presumed God would wipe him and his family out too once all the animals were saved. Sure, Noah was a vegetarian and the bad guys are meat eaters who do to the earth what Saruman did, but I don’t really see the whacked out radical environmentalism. It’s more thematic of

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
