Investor's Business Daily: Disability claims > jobs


Anonymous said...

I believe what is happening here is that a lot of folks over the age of 50 that lost jobs during the crash back in 2008 and have been unable to find comparable work at comparable pay and benefits since then have thrown-in the towel and filed for this. When your cobra runs-out, your savings are gone, you have paid the taxes on withdrawing your 401k money, plus spent it, maxed-out your paltry state unemployment benefits, and you see foreclosure possibly looming, it might make sense, provided you are truly disabled. Sad, there is just no private sector job creation under the uncertainty and confidence-destroying of Obama.

Having lived under the hopelessness of only having change in my pocket for 3 years, it is easy to see why us unemployed have Post Tramatic Stress Disorder

7:28, that is part of the problem. But I work in a medical clinic, where every day we see several people in their 20s and 30s with minor ailments trying to get on disability. Back pain? Shortness of breath because they smoke? Borderline diabetes because they're 100 pounds overweight? They want a monthly check for the rest of their life. And the saddest aspect of this scam? It poisons the system for those who are truly disabled and need the help. This is a government program which needs to be cored out and restructured desperately.

I would also imagine that all the Lawyers who are guaranteeing results aren't helping any either.

I also work in a clinic and aggressively address scam artists who are both milking the system for money and dope. The state has a pharmacy network that will show you all the scripts your patients are getting from all their doctors now. We call the police and a drug task agent for each poser that comes in. As for the non disabled-disabled. Well, We call the disability board and let them know that the patient is doing "just fine" and needs to be re-evaluated. The problem with our goddamn country is that we have bread a bunch of lazy worthless assholes who honestly think voting democrat is gonna keep them from having to work.

8:27 I am going to sound horrible, but there are jobs out there. The problem is that they may not be the jobs that people want.

I was laid off from a good paying state government job last December. The irony was that the day in October when I was told that my job (as well as others) would be eliminated, I went back to my office and listened to my director and a few select employees talk to an interior designer, a contractor and order Steelcase furniture for their new offices.

I had every right to be pissed and moan and groan. I started looking for suitable employment day one. I interviewed and networked, and it took a couple of months, but I landed a job in the private sector that paid better, had better benefits, and the such. I didn't give up when I interviewed for one job five times and didn't get it. Or the one where the interviewer told me I was the preferred candidate, then the next day the job didn't come through.

In the interim, I took work that was well beneath my expertise, and did not pay near what I was used to, and had erratic hours doing freelance work in my field, so that I could support my family. Did not think about taking unemployment. It disgusts me.

So excuse me if I don't buy the woe is me, I've been looking for a job for three years garbage. I found a "job" the first day I looked and a suitable, comparable job in y field within 90 days.

If I'm not mistaken, the data compares the number of American citizens 'Going ON' federal SSI (Disability) with the number of new hires. NOT 'disability claims' as stated above the chart. It used to be quite a laborious gamut to run, meeting all the government requirements for designation as 'disabled'. Apparently the hurdle is lower now.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
