Do you want to know how bad things are? Do you “really” want to know? Chances are, if you pass your time watching sports rather then watching the news, or reading gossip websites rather then reading news websites, you probably do not want to read this article.
Since 2009, an average of 150,000 jobs are created every month inside the United States.
During that same time, an average of 250,000 people apply for Social Security Disability every month.
In other words, 100,000 more people apply for social security disability every month over those that find a job.
Around 14 million people currently draw Social Security disability.

The system is broken. 100,000 more people file for SS disability rather then find a job every month. It is just a matter of time before the financial system collapses.
It is impossible for 150,000 workers to support 250,000 people on disability, and that is the direction we are headed.
As long as the Federal Reserve can print money out of thin air, everything will be ok.
Before we begin, I want to make it clear that there is a difference between someone who refuses to work, and someone who can not work.
The system should help those who can not work.
The system should not help those who are too lazy to work.
My wife and I had a friend over last night. As we were talking, the topic slowly turned a certain person that we know, how people abuse social security disability and welfare abuse. The discussion turned to a 18 year old lady, who is drawing social security disability, is pregnant and not married.
The person claims they are disabled because they are bi-polar. With so many job opportunities out there, surely there is something they can do. Why cant this person stock groceries, dig ditches, cut grass,,,, preform some job service that is not affected by her disability.
