"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.”

…”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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

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.

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?

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

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….
