    I recall a few years back reading about a fire fighter who got hurt on the job and filed for disability. Gotta be exactly what that insurance is for, right? Well, by and by someone spotted a photo in the local paper of this disabled man winning a body building competition. Not good. I don't think anyone would support such open fraud. However, if someone is legitimately disabled by an accident on the job I don't begrudge them full disability coverage. Get all the fraud out of the system and there would be enough to support the legitimately hurt with lots to spare.

    Do y'all consider applications for asylum in the same manner?

    I'm ropin' a log cabin for a 9/11 FF this month Unkotare. He survived it, but got the lung thing ,and was summarily retired to disability. For all outward apperances, he's a bull, can't keep up w/him most days.

    But, he's going to DIE of it before his time, AND he knows it, so he's building his fam's future

    Moral? Not all is what it appears to be

    I can't imagine any good American begrudging that man whatever assistance he needs. If our taxes are going to go for anything, it should be for people like him.

    Disability comes with periodic reevaluation of the recipient's condition, unless his condition is known to be long term or probably fatal. Lots of people don't seem to know that.

    I could have, except my generosity was exhausted long ago, by decades of massive Third World immigration.

    A fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage and unemployment compensation for simply being unemployed, would solve this issue for the several States.

    So, you would reject any and all petitions for asylum? No matter the circumstances?

    I'm sure there is a sob story or two that would move me.


    On the other hand, ask me again once the number of illegals drop by a couple of million and legal immigration is cut down to something reasonable, like 5 figures.
