35% on Disability Have “Mental Disorder”

What does it take to get on disability? A mental disorder, apparently. About 35% of people currently receiving benefits from the civil government due to a disability are physically fit. Their disability is of the mental variety. The number of people on disability has increased dramatically over the years: Disabled beneficiaries have increased 49.7 percent from a decade ago in 2003 when there were 6,830,714 beneficiaries; and the number is up 14.3 percent from the 8,945,376 beneficiaries in 2009, Read more […]

BREAKING: Obesity Now Being Recognized as a Disability

Bruno Waterfield of The Telegraph reports on obesity: “Fatness ‘can constitute a disability’ for the purposes of European Union equality at work legislation, Europe’s highest court has ruled.

School’s Attorney Claims 9 Yr Old Molested Girl Suffered Less Trauma Due to Her Disability

If you believe an attorney representing the Los Angeles Unified School District, kids with lower IQs or who are developmentally delayed, suffer from less trauma than do so-called normal kids. The argument used by W. Keith Wyatt, a partner in the law firm of Ivie, McNeill & Wyatt, was part of the defense used when he defended the LAUSD in a lawsuit filed by the parents of a 9 year old girl. The girl, who is developmentally delayed, had been repeatedly molested by a classmate. Afterwards, she Read more […]

100 Government Retirees Collect Millions in Disability Scam

9/11 seems to be a legitimate excuse for everything these days. It’s an excuse to get rid of the 4th Amendment, the 5th Amendment, the 2nd Amendment.

Now, it’s serving as the excuse for a number of retired New York cops, firefighters and jail guards to receive fraudulent disability checks, all while they live the high life: One Read more […]

One Reason For The Decline Of America: Disability Leeches

Tom Hodgkinson said: “History is dotted with individuals and groups who decided that laziness was next to godliness and work was a waste of time.” I’ll be the first to admit that I am sometimes a lazy guy.

Laziness that contributes to a degeneration of society and a deterioration of a country Read more […]

HuffPo Publishes Story Of Disability Fraud Without Mentioning Fraud

When Americans hear of other countries where poor parents might deliberately disfigure their children in order that they will provoke more sympathy when they beg on the streets, they typically feel a mixture of revulsion for the parents and pity for the child. Many Americans have similar feelings when they hear of single mothers with multiple children encouraging their teen daughters to get pregnant out of wedlock in order to win welfare benefits from the state. Behind this feeling is that children Read more […]

The Food Stamp/Disability “Recovery”

The fact that economists have some way to use numbers to claim that the United States is now, “in a recovery,” just shows you how useless their numbers are to actually measure the state of the nation. What we have, in this “recovery” is a steady climb in the use of food stamps. The Weekly Standard reports: “In an article titled, ‘Use of Food Stamps Swells Even as Economy Improves,’ the Wall Street Journal reports that ‘The financial crisis is over and the recession ended in 2009.
