Why do we work? Lets just draw Social Security disability

survivalistBefore 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.

How many times do people have to vote for the two major parties before they realize there is no difference?

It took both parties to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement – NAFTA

It took both parties to pass the banking bailout scam.

It took both parties to pass the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade – GATT.

It is taking both parties to continue this war in Iraq.

It took both parties to establish the income tax.

It took both parties to send millions of our jobs to China, Taiwan and India.

It has taken both parties to increase our taxes to where they are today.

Do you realize that the average American spends about 1/2 of their income on taxes?
1. Social Security
2. Medicare / Mediciad
3. Income Tax – both at the state and federal levels
4. Property Tax
5. Sales Tax
6. Fuel Tax on Gasoline
7. FCC charges on your cable TV bill
8. FCC charges on your phone bill

And this is only part of the list.
