I work in healthcare and see "disabled" people everyday who are lying and abusing the program. Yesterday saw 2 patients on disability who could not say what their disability was and were taking no medications. We see this all the time and other doctors I have spoken with figure that about 85 to 90% percent of disabilities are fake. We all know many people with real health issues that take their medicine and get up every day and go to work. To the defenders of these people and the program, what disease is so bad that these people need a free pass for life, and yet has no name and requires no treatment?
Bingo! We have a winner! Lefties, please explain why this concept is so hard to understand.
If the liberal Supremes were not intellectual light-weights and really understood the Constitution, the Heller decision would have been 9-0 instead of 5-4. Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsberg, in particular, do not seem to have a clue about the meaning of the Constitution
Whether a conservative person agrees with the outrageous compensation packages or golden parachutes for companies is not the question. A conservative sees that those decisions reside with a Board of Trustees, who may or may not be doing their best job and may make stupid decisions. It is not my job or the government's job to be involved, although I have the power to withdraw my support for companies I dislike. Doc Roy needs to learn about boundaries and who is responsible for what.
Exactly how much "profit" would GM be making if they paid back all of the taxpayers' money, out of their operating income, as they should?
Work with them in health care everyday. Got their names, address, cell numbers, medical and job history in my records, actually. Thanks for asking and thanks for playing!
Why, yes. Now you are getting it! Should we do a life audit of all the po' folks and analyze every decision they made and dime they spent and see the real reasons for their poverty? I think that would be great idea. Get up for school or cut class? Do homework or play video games? Get a tattoo or buy food? Do drugs or pay rent? Get fancy nails or buy a book? Get knocked up or say No and stay in school?
Come on people. You can't expect a mother to be with the father(s) of her children to raise and support them. How can a young mother in poverty provide 3 meals a day for her kids? Are you expecting her to give up the fancy nail manicures, the hair extensions, tattoos, cigarettes, beer, drugs, lottery tickets, trips to the internet cafe, a smart phone with data plan, and a big screen TV? How cruel are you???
When Obama keeps saying he wants to do this or that, such as change corporate tax rates, I wish Romney would say, "You sound like a candidate. Are you President or not? Why haven't you done or proposed any of these things?"

The Five 'Reasons' to Re-elect Obama

The guy you said was "handed everything " was Obama, right? What has he ever done (evidence, please) on his own? Let's see the school records and find out how he got into these top schools and afford them? He is and always has been an empty suit propped up by others. He's just not that smart. Oh, and Romney; he moved away and worked and then started his own business. No doubt that he was well brought up and had "human capital" to work with. He did do it.

The ‘Risk’ of Being Poor

The main problem that needs to be addressed when talking about the poor is the RATE. Yes there are some hard working, decent people who are poor, but what percentage is it of all the poor? This is the key factor. Progressives would have us believe that nearly all the poor are unlucky good folks who just need a hand. Conservatives believe, and this is my experience, that the majority are screw ups, lazy, irresponsible people corrupted by the entitlement culture. I would like to see some hard data on these rates for all of us to study.
