Ring-winger empathy can be measured along a linear grade; this scale begins with “pot roast” and ends with “amoral predator.” If they can’t see that you’re physically ill, they don’t think you are, and God help you if you try to challenge their judgement. Thus, there’s a degree of warped logical consistency to Rand Paul’s recent…

    “There are fifty two, fifty two, documented Communists in the United State government.” Senator John Yerkes Iselin, as told to Senator Rand Paul.

    Hell, he won’t even honor the heroes of the FAILED white armed rebellion out in Nevada, you really expect him to point out a white boy scamming the disability system?

    But everybody in this room knows somebody who is gaming the system.

    He must be thinking of big biz & their lobbyists?

    I know, I know, he’s talking about disability. No, I don’t know anybody who is ‘gaming the system’, Rand. If I did, hopefully I would convince them to stop or failing that get folks that person respects to convince them to stop or failing that, report them.

    But the truth is, seeing somebody get out of a truck more spryly than Rand Paul thinks appropriate is not evidence of ‘gaming the system’. There is not rampant disability fraud, if Randy has actual evidence proving otherwise he should present it to the appropriate authorities.

      There are a small percentage of ‘workman’s comp that are gaming the system, at least for a short time. That’s not the same as disability.

    We, as humans, haven’t yet evolved to stand upright completely. Our internal organs are all arranged for walking on all fours still. A large part of why millions have back trouble.pain.
    True, that in the ‘old days’ 60s, 70s, and even into the early 80’s you could qualify for disability for emotional problems, nerves, or similar problems. I remember seeing high rise 4X4s with handicap plates.
    Now, that’s far from easy. My daughter-in-law had to appeal and eventually sue in order to get disability from Social Security. (bones in her back were degenerated). This nut ball is way off base.

      This was perfectly addressed on my FB page, it said simply: That motherfucker.

        Whats facebook?

    In a video he states “we all know” someone gaming the system.
    I wonder if Senator Paul has done his duty, he swore an oath to uphold the law. By reporting this fraudster?
    Or could it be he lied?

    There are people who cheat insurance companies. Do we end all insurance policies? People steal from banks and retail stores. Do we close banks and stores? No. We try to end the fraud where it exists, we don’t kill the whole system. He’s an idiot.

    He’s gamed the system for years with his own “medical” practice so I guess he knows what he is talking about. /s
