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.
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.

If companies are going to exploit free trade and tax loopholes, shouldn’t they be required to give something back?
Apple makes a cool billion in profit, but yet a record number of people are on welfare.
Nobody sees an issue with that?
