One of the problems I have that is part of what defines my disability is
both shoulders are torn up and I'm told they need replacing. Of course I
wouldn't go for a top floor apartment since both of my knees
are wrecked too. But if someone is visually impaired and has otherwise
good knees and legs, they can still be disabled but quite able to climb
stairs. I climb stairs when I can because I need the exercise but I
can't always do it. Besides when my external defibrillator goes off, I
have to sit or lay down, that could be difficult on a long flight of
Not so, I was working right up to the time I died May 10th. 19 days in
the hospital and I'm getting stronger every day since the cardiologist
shocked my heart back into the correct rhythm. I'm planning on helping
with some network installations here in the next few days. I have lots
of work to do, in fact I had people calling me for service while I was
in the hospital. Perhaps, you should know of what you write before you
press the keys on your keyboard? ^_^

Yawn...... Yet another dumb lib deception. This is like libs
bitching that a conservative governor is somehow a hypocrite because
were against some massive govt handout program, but when you
libs windup passing it anyway, their state gets some of the money.
Of course they are going to get the money for their state. Like with
OBama's $800bil stimulus. Much of it was a bad idea. But given
that you libs rammed it through, it becomes the program in place,
so of course all states are going to try to get their share of it.
residents of that state are paying income taxes, sending it to DC.
You libs decide to start throwing it around, so of course they are
entitled to their share of it back. A bad system? Yes. Hypocrites?
Same thing with taxes. Conservatives would like a flat tax system,
with lower rates. But given we have what we have, of course they
are going to minimize their taxes, while complying with it. What
do the rich libs like the Kennedy's, Kerry's and Warren Buffet
do? In fact the hypocrite Buffet has been fighting the IRS for
years over hundreds of million they say his company owes. And
Kerry registered his yacht in RI to avoid MA taxes. Good grief!

Pay attention and learn. Unless you're dumb enough to
believe that an extraordinary amount of people somehow suddenly
became disabled in the last 4 years, then obviously a lot
of people are suddenly claiming they are disabled, when
they really are not. And you don't have to look far to
see it happening. I gave an example of a guy in his 20's
collecting SSI because he claims he has ADD. You'd
have to be a cluless lib to believe that this guy, who I
can see functioning with my own two eyes, is incapable
of holding any kind of job. In other words, there are a lot
of people on all the various govt programs that do not
qualify for what they receive.
And the more of these programs you have, the more
fraud you get. In another thread one of your lib buddies
was bemoaning the poverty rate. The poverty rate, while
at an all time high, isn't all that much different than what it
was in the mid 60's. That alone says a lot. I would expect it
to be substantially higher, because today if you can claim you're
living in poverty, there are far more programs to hand out
a lot more money to you. People know how to work the
system. That's one reason you have so many single mother
families on welfare. Daddy splits, family gets welfare. And then
makes some more money off the books. Goes on all the time.
where did I address the legitimacy of those claims. I did address the
fact that, as you have stated, that if the gov't is going to hand out
money to the rich, the poor are going to learn all the tricks those
lipstick conservatives use.
As for working the system, just think off-shore banks and while we're at
it, let's thank all those bankers and realtors that helped created the

The difference is that the govt, for the most part, is *not*
handing money out to the rich. Or to the middle class either. You
libs pretending that the govt taking 25% of
what folks make instead of 35% is the govt giving them
something is just more liberal lies.
But it's you libs who are always in favor or more of
more govt systems, more govt programs, more govt
handouts. The more you have, the more they can be
And even systems that could be simple, ie the income
tax by having one rate, virtually no exemptions, etc, why
you're against that. You insist on having a mythical 39%
rate, but then packing it full of exemptions and loopholes
for all kinds of crap. Then when people do what you want,
follow the tax code, to wind up paying 20%, you snear at them as rich
people. We could just have that 20% flat rate,
but you libs won't because you rather keep up the class

Nation: Record 10,978,040 collecting disability payments:
Yes it does. Here's how:
1) $$ put in overseas bank.
2) Bank needs to pay interest on deposit so it lends the deposited $$
out and charges more interest than it pays the depositor.
3) Money lent out is usually borrowed by someone who can do something
productive with it, e.g. build a home or factory.
4) That generates jobs.
so some rich guy puts his money in off-shore banks and some other guy
borrows the money from the off-shore bank and creates jobs in the USA?
LOL, that's a clumsy cost-ineffective way of creating jobs when the
original depositor could just create the jobs in the first place or the
borrower could just borrow with less hassle from the guy who is putting
his money off-shore
You have to understand that lefties do NOT have even a basic concept at how
the banking system operates
They imagine that all that money deposited in a bank, sits in a vault, a la
Scrooge McDuck, reproducing by osmosis in the dark.

So, a strip club now qualifies as "the rich" or "big business"?
And if they created a job for just $37,000, that's about
one tenth the $300K that was spent on each job created
by Obama's stimulus. Sounds like one of the more effective lib
programs. California has been so infested with failed
liberal policies that it sailed off the cliff a long time ago, and
nothing that goes on there should surprise anyone.
I'd also point out that this is a prime example of unintended
consequences. You libs like govt programs and live in a
world of unicorns and puppies. Then when it turns out that
businesses like a strip club qualify, why that's the fault of the
business, right? Wrong. California is run by a lib gov and
lib legislature and the results show. In the days of Reagan,
Intel was building factories in CA. They haven't built a new
fab there in decades now. So, now it's down to jobs in
They wouldn't have to keep that corp money offshore if it
weren't for you libs. Republicans have long favored reducing
the US corp tax rate, which is among the highest in the world.
Money finds the places with the least taxes, the most positive
business climate. Reduce the rate and the money will come
here. Economics 101.
Because that is what so many of them are. If you live off the
public as a way of life when you're capable of holding any job,
then yes, you're a leach. That you libs make programs, rules that
allow it, encourage more into that lifestyle, doesn't change it.
