The "Law & Order: CBU" spinoff didn't do so well.

I guess now we know if it's her or her parents in this income tax bracket.

I used to do some work in the insurance fraud field. Woman who could no longer user her left arm chucking cases of soda into the bed of her pickup. Or the one who claimed a back so bad she was bed ridden, taking her sweet lil old neighbor who was wheelchair bound to her appointments. I friggin hated that job.

we need more people digging up these fraudsters. disability and welfare.

i had a woman in front of me at the grocery store on monday. she had about $250 worth of groceries, ends up she only had like 60 dollars on her EBT card. she made damn sure the 5 half gallons of ice cream were going out the door with her then left a cart full for the employees to put pack on the shelves.

And you thought "abandoned shopping cart" was an Internet metaphor.

We'd find frozen chicken in the fresh chicken section, and fresh chicken in the frozen section.  Fresh asparagus tossed in the freezer bin next to the frozen.

6 cans of coffee, put through the grinder, and then left in a cart.

People would also grab a can of cheap coffee, dump out the beans, and then grind the Kona into the cheap can.  They'd stick the empty Kona can back on the shelf and we'd find it sometime later.

I'd often see cold stuff left anywhere a customer pleased often not in a cooler, I got surprised when they bothered to put a cold item in a cooler.  Is it really that hard to tell the cashier you don't want an item anymore especially when it's refrigerated, frozen, or otherwise perishable?

We really need to find these doctors that are allowing this disability fraud.

I know of a woman's husband that has been on disability for over a decade and yet he is healthy enough to ride his big Harley Davidson everywhere, including riding them down to Panama City Beach several times a year - about a 6 hour ride from here.

We need to get rid of disability all together, it's nothing but fraud in about 99% of the cases. Unless the person is bed ridden there is something out there you can do to earn a living.

We should replace it with a program to train people in skills that would be useful with their given abilities. There's people in wheel chairs who sit in an office and earn a paycheck.

I know of a retired Air Force officer who gets 40 percent disability who just finished his second thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. How does that work?

Unless they're bed ridden, a quadriplegic or have a brain injury that makes them basically retarded, then it's fraud in my book. Like I said, people in wheel chairs can sit behind a desk and earn a paycheck.

In a nutshell, to qualify for disability you don't have to prove you cant do anything, you just have to prove you can't do your current job and here's the kicker, that you don't have any other skills or experience that could get you employed elsewhere. So lets say you're a truck driver and have a foot amputated. Well you can't drive with one foot and because all you've ever done is drive a truck, you have no other employable skills. Walla, you're now "disabled".

Like I said in my Boobies, we need to abolish the program for all but the severely disabled and replace it with a job training and placement program.

They really need to stop replacing the word fir-st with that, it's downright farking stupid. At the very least make it show that way in preview so you can change it to something else.

Yes ...get rid of all programs because some people take advantage of it.  How about hire some of the functional disabled people as fraud investigators.
Yes.... override a doctor's evaluation because you know a guy who takes advantage. How about you do your civic duty and turn in the person.


blah blah blah "i hate all this fraud" blah blah blah I know like 10 people who are scamming the system.....blah blah blah i wish someone would do something about it.

The problem with this country is no one does shiat about anything.  Get off your ass and be part of the solution.

Mental retardation? PTSD?  Blind? Don't presume to judge based on anecdotes.

Mental retardation?


I included brain injuries in my post.

PTSD?

Get consoling, take medication, grow a pair, kill yourself, I don't care which. Society shouldn't have to support you because you can't cope with life.

Blind?

Blind people are incapable of performing any useful function in society? That would be news to a lot of blind people.

Don't presume to judge based on anecdotes.

I wasn't.

Who cares if it fraud in your book.  The only fraud that matters is if it goes against the law and not your personal opinion.   I have a friend who was hit by a car, was in a coma for 3 months and lost his leg, he was a car mechanic. According your book he doesn't qualify but in my book and the according the government he does qualify.  He did that job for 25 years and was never a slacker. 

Are there a good number of people working the system that should be jailed for fraud. yes i do believe so. But for you to claim 99% are fraud makes you look like a fool

So your friend lost a leg, don't get me wrong, that's a terrible thing to have happen, but you think he deserves a free check once a month for the rest of his life because of that? I'm not talking about helping the guy out while he's recuperating, I'm all for that, I'm talking about supporting the guy until he dies like a large portion of these cases end up doing. He cant learn another trade? Better yet, he cant learn to adjust to his situation and go back to being a mechanic? There's Olympic runners with artificial legs for Christ sake.

you claim it is fraud.  I see it as legitimate use of the benefit.  go after those who are truly milking the system. Some of the military one's are doubtful. I know a lady who had some issue happen to her leg in the military, but she can still drive with one of those pedal adapters and she does some maid work under the table while drawing full disability benefits from the Army.

oh my buddy who lost the leg will never be allowed to drive the accident also messed with his brain. He would stop by to visit us at work and he went from being sharp as a tack to pretty much laughing at anything that was said.
