"I Could Work If I Wanted to…"

I found the following at https://adrianvance.blogspot.com/?view=classic
A Ford dealer reports: Tom Selkis’ (Latham Ford) Facebook – True story recently at the dealership.
“One of my salesmen had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit application with her he noticed she was on social security disability.
He said to her you don’t look like you’re disabled and unable to work. She said, “Well I’m really not. I could work if I wanted to, but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt.” (A non-disabling injury).
She said the government sends her $1500.00 a month disability check. And, she gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), plus $800.00 a month for rent.”
In addition a free cell phone and 250 minutes free on her phone, per month
It all adds up to $3500.00 a month.
When she was working, she was taking home about $330.00 per week, $1,320 per month. Do the math and then ask yourself why the Hell should she ever go back to work?
If you multiply that by millions of people, you realize the scope of the real problem we face as a country. Putting people out of work breeds socialists!
When the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario, we are finished and they are getting their fast if they have not achieved it already. This is the Obama Plan.
We have 92.6 million people not working from a potential work force of 180 million, 51.4% unemployed. We have crossed the threshold to permanent socialism unless the Republicans convince the people that working offers opportunity for much more. but they seem to only want to imitate Democrats with their versions of the same programs!
When there are not enough people working to support these people what happens? Riots? Civil War for “benefits.” Be prepared to protect your homes and especially any stored food.
She didn’t lease the Focus because the dealer down the road beat our deal by $10.00/month.
Glad to know she is so frugal with our hard earned money.”

  1. …”She said, “Well I’m really not. I could work if I wanted to, but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt.” …
    And sees nothing wrong with living off money stolen from other people at the point of a gun, punishing the righteous in order to thrive off ill gotten gains.
    There will be a reckoning, I pity these people. Can you imagine the abject shame they will experience when the truth of their actions are revealed? Not only revealed, but done in a manner that is undeniable, the seared conscience no longer allowed to block the truth?

     
  2. Why do you post crap like this? Do your research and find out what a disabled person with her wages would actually get for disability. I would bet you’ll be surprised. What are the rules limits for those other benefits? I’ll not believe some rumor based on zero facts without some documentation. Do your research. Don’t do propaganda.

     
    • I posted this, because I want the TRUTH! We are being lied to on so many fronts nowadays, that it’s impossible to know just who is lying. Rhino’s, NWO, uni-party everywhere. Attacking SS and Medicare is a death nail for Republicans. Fraud needs to end, but there is MUCH bigger fraud elsewhere. EVERYONE knows it. DC is a cesspool! Massive corruption of the powers that be.

       
    • Kathy,
      Let me guess: You’re on Social Security Disability?
      You’re taking Mike’s post way too personally. He’s not attacking you. He’s addressing the fraud that’s rampant in SSD. In fact, SS conducted a survey of recipients, and many disability recipients actually admitted that they could work but refuse to.
      See my post “Many on Social Security Disability can but don’t want to work
      https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/08/03/many-on-social-security-disability-can-but-dont-want-to-work/
      Instead of attacking Mike and his post, you should applaud him because it’s this rampant fraud that’ll soon bankrupt SSD. See my post “Social Security Disability will be bankrupt in 3 years
      https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/18/social-security-disability-will-be-bankrupt-in-3-years/

       
      • I think posting an article based on a car salesman’s account of a sale he clearly wanted but didn’t get is irresponsible. I think trying to paint everyone with the same brush is irresponsible.
        I am a Christian Conservative and I am deeply worried about the state of our Country. SS would be fine if the crooks in DC would pay back the money that has been stolen from it. That’s the TRUTH!!!!!! Senator Tom Coburn admitted it in a letter I have. You won’t hear that on fake Fox News. Do we really want to go back to the 1800’s where the elderly and disabled were on the streets like today’s homeless and mentally ill? As a Christian you should be protecting these people. It’s a disgrace the way the mentally ill and homeless are treated in this country. It breaks my heart whenever I see them. Too many of us so called Christians don’t want to look or see. We just look the other way. Myself included.
        I think we desperately need a Christian Conservation direction in this Country. Ending or gutting SS and Medicare is NOT it. If were lucky and the Republicans get the Senate in less than two weeks, people are going to be devastated if this is their agenda instead of fixing what really needs to be fixed and well be stuck with Hilliary as President. They need to shore up SS and Medicare by paying it back! No theft from the American people. They need to fix Bush’s theft and make everyone pay the same. No more theft for the richest among us earning above the limits. These policies only seek to make the rich richer and work to eliminate the middle class. It’s not just SS and Medicare. The IRS tax codes are corrupt everywhere. The rich get richer and the middle class and the poor get the shaft. Massive looting for the cronies. Were literally nothing more than the elitist uni-party’s slaves.
        Let me ask you how you would feel if they come after your life insurance policies or your retirement accounts? You know that’s what some of them have been advocating. It’s theft pure and simple. The NWO banking cabals would like nothing better than to get their hands on your money and property. (Agenda 21). This theft affects those who can least afford it more than others and it’s equally awful for all.
        And Dr. Ewoyn as much as I admire and respect you, I don’t believe the propaganda SS articles I’ve seen you post either. You need to realize that for everyone of these fraudsters there are many, many more people barely surviving on the meager amounts they receive. I was not attacking Mike personally, I am questioning clear propaganda. That’s what we need to do. In these days of deception, we need to question everything. I have very much enjoyed some of Mike’s posts.
        I would like to ask you and Mike to search your conscience, For every article you post trashing these programs please also post an article about all the people that they legitimately help. After all, these people paid for their disability insurance policy. That policy and that money in that trust fund belongs to them, not the evil in DC. Don’t be fooled! Please make an attempt at fair and balanced.
        God help us if we have to suffer through the full 8 years of Obama and then 8 of Hillary. Transformation won’t begin to describe it.

         
        • Kathy,
          Once again, you’re projecting. Where in any of our posts have you ever seen us propose that America “go back to the 1800’s where the elderly and disabled were on the streets like today’s homeless and mentally ill”? What Mike and I have done is to point to the fraud and waste — precisely the same things against which you rail.
          I DEEPLY resent your accusations. You owe Mike and me an apology.
          You can pick and choose what you want to believe, but THE REALITY and THE TRUTH, whether you like it or not, whether you continue to wear blinders or not, are that:
          1. There are many SSD recipients who are frauds. (I personally know one, a Japanese national married to a naturalized U.S. citizen, who was getting SSD although she has a well-paying job as a nurse on a Japanese oil-exploration ship. I reported her to SS. My husband’s niece willingly made herself dependent on SSD, and has not worked a day in her life. She claims she’s schizophrenic, but she has the wits to try to finagle a larger inheritance from one of her aunts than what she’s entitled to.)
          2. The United States is $18 trillion in debt.
          3. And Social Security Disability, Social Security, and Medicare are all going broke. And the first to go is SSD.

           
          • I am not projecting anything. You are projecting on me. Fraud of all types is terrible and should be exposed. I question whether this particular article is even true. A used car salesman…..really? Now I am projecting and being judgmental and I should not.
            There is a larger agenda here and I don’t mean you or Mike. I like and respect you both. It seems that you do not have any respect for me, so I’ll not post again. As Christians, I think (know) that you are misinformed on SS, SSD, Medicare. I have had these conversations with Senator Coburn and others. The SS trust fund has been robbed. Are you ok with just giving your money to the criminals in DC who stole this money and gave it to their cronies? No I don’t believe you are. These evil people in DC want to do away with SS, SSD and Medicare all together. They only want more money for them. If there is one tax that I pay that I would gripe about the least, it’s these taxes.
            The latest crisis in SS has been created by BUSH/OBAMA lowering the rates paid into SS during the financial crisis. First they stole the money from the trust fund and then they lowered the rates to underfund it. BUSH and the Republicans caused a huge decline when he made the richest of the rich EXEMPT on more and more of their income. Most of us smucks have to pay on our entire earnings, but not the richest of the rich. Is that fair? Of course not.. We need a major tax overhaul. It needs to be so simple and so basic that it cannot be corrupted. Some would argue a flat tax. It sounds good, but how are you going to decide what is taxed and how the taxable amount is calculated. In here is where lies the corruption. A consumption tax will tax those with little expendable income disproportionally high. They will be taxed on everything. The really stinky wealthy (we all know who they are) will just set on their earnings and not spend. If you don’t tax earnings on savings and investments, the 1% get wealthier and wealthier while the rest of us go the other way. How do you devise a tax so that everyone pays the same on everything? I believe this Country needs to have this conversation. Until we can have this discussion and come up with something that is truly just a fair for all, were doomed to this massive corruption we see today. Over government is corrupt and out of control. It’s up to us to stand on Constitutional principals and root out this corruption or this Country is going to be destroyed.
            Of course the article Mike posted is indefensible if true. If true, it’s terrible. I don’t see how it’s possible for people to get away with something like that and I don’t see how those numbers are possible on her salary. But, I don’t know all the details. No one does. That makes me skeptical. I know there is fraud everywhere and policies need to be implemented to minimize it. I’d like to know where the trillions that went missing the day before 9-11 at the pentagon are? I’d like to know were all the unaccounted for dollars are? There is massive fraud in our government.
            I believe articles like this are designed to help give them openings to talk about doing away with these programs. Go ahead and do that and face HILLARY for the next 8 years…………….
            If you think I owe you guy’s an apology, I’ll apologize. I’ll admit, that I may not be the most articulate. That’s why I rarely post. I never meant to offend either of you. I think you have been snookered by the cabal on this one, but I could be wrong. I know a lot about all kinds of taxes and how they work. There, you can call me whatever you like just please don’t do anything to get us stuck with Hillary. I’m not sure were going to survive Obama.

             
            • Kathy,
              No one, myself included, had called you names. What I did was to try to restore some semblance of rationality to your hysterical vituperous attack on Mike. I know you are reacting from fear because you depend on SSD. But lashing out at Mike and me for something we didn’t do, and denying the reality of fraudulent SSD recipients, and of SSD (and other government entitlement programs) being unsustainable doesn’t help or solve your problem.
              If your apology is sincere, I accept your apology. But please don’t EVER use my Christian faith to bludgeon me. Writing about the truth, no matter how unpalable you find it, is not unChristian. Your using my Christian faith as a weapon against me is sinking to Alinsky’s tricks. Shame on you.

               
      • Thank you, Dr. Eowyn!

         
    • Kathy, remember this?

       
      • Yep. Totally disgusting. You know why this program with all the fraud is still out there? It’s because of lobbyist in the Phone Industries. It’s part of their cabal. Think how much they make by billing the Gov’t. That’s why they give these phones to people who are not qualified and there is rampant fraud. These fraudster companies could care less. They just want that big government check. These programs were designed for fraud. In a sense it could be compared to their illegal gun running only it’s dangerous.

         
  3. Bloody disgusting! When I think how hard my husband and I worked all those years just so we could pay out to these no-gooders….! My husband worked at the Post Office and every month I could tell when it was payout time to the perpetual moochers. He would come home so upset and tell me about the lineup of the nothingburgers for their free $$$$$. I’d better go before I get arrested for what I’d like to say!

     
    • Was you husband one of those that got both civil service retirement and SS?

       
      • Kathy, are you a troll?
        If not, why don’t you take your passion and run for local office? Or write an article and send it to Dr. Eowyn.
        The key to this post is in the headline. In her own words, the woman says I could work if I wanted to. She’s better off than most hard-working Americans.

         
        • Mike, I don’t feel that I’m capable of any of that. I’m just a lowly schmuck that’s grieving for what’s happened to us and what is about to get a whole lot worse. I normally don’t post. I don’t know why I did today. I guess I’m just having a bad day. I got some really bad news today on the death panels and how some of it is already being implemented. I don’t feel qualified to discuss any of it right now, so I won’t. You seem like a nice guy. Good luck to you.

           
      • What does legitimate draw of benefits have to do with fraudulent recipients?

         
        • You still don’t see and your accusing me of things that are not true. Don’t assume you know anything about me, because you don’t. We all have our own crosses to bear. I thought this site was a site for discussion and Christian fellowship. Unfortunately, I now feel you only want cheer leading. I apologized. You were mean. Whether I’m dependent on SSD or the Queen of England is no one’s business. That was a low blow way below the bar on your part. You should apologize. Good luck to both of you.. I’ll sit quietly like most Americans have done and watch the destruction. I just hate what is happening to us.
          PS….I would have sent this to you in private if you had a contact link. Sorry for the public post. And by the way….no excuse….I’m having a really bad day……

           
          • Kathy,
            I’m sorry you’re having a bad day. But attacking and thereby inflicting a “bad day” on others sure isn’t the way to deal with your “bad day.”
            I also do not appreciate your portraying what happened as: “I thought this site was a site for discussion and Christian fellowship. Unfortunately, I now feel you only want cheer leading.”
            May I remind you that it was *you* who started this dust-up by attacking Mike, calling his post “crap.” That is not the way either to “discuss” or conduct “Christian fellowship.”
            Now you resort to portraying yourself as a victim of people who “only want cheer leading.” I suggest you undertake a thorough examination of conscience.

             
      • I smell a troll

         
  4. How about the good old days when there was a bit of stigma to taking handouts?? Yes, by all means help the needy but not the greedy! Oh, and Kathy, lighten up!

     
  5. Kathy – I pray you are having a better day. As I read these postings I wondered if there is some deep sorrow in your life that you can’t share. Just ruminating….
