Skip to comments.The Hermit Syndrome
Posted on 10/20/2013 9:26:26 AM PDT by rktman
Do you ever wonder, asked our younger daughter this week, in the midst of cynical adolescence, whether were the only sane people on a planet of idiots?
Yes, Ive wondered that quite a bit. As a result Ive decided I want to be a hermit when I grow up.
Oh wait, Im already grown up. And I have a husband and two children whom I dearly love. OK, so Ive decided that well ALL become hermits when
er, when we grow up. Can you be hermits together, or does it require solitude?

Don’t become a hermit. Just shrug.
Do whatever you can to hide what you have and game the system. For tips on that, consult with the Democrat party’s moocher base. I hear SSDI is the hottest scam going right now, and it’s perfectly legal. EVERYBODY is “disabled” in some way or another. Got bad eyesight? Addicted to something? Depressed? Did you “twist your back”? Get a lawyer. Get on the gravy train bbefore the Democrat moochers gobble everything up.
If I had the stomach for it I could do it but it ain’t in me. I had major back surgery a year and a half ago and probably could file for SSDI if I was looking for work but I’m retired. And since I’m not lookin’, how could I look at myself in the mirror? (scary in itself. LOL!) I know/knew those that scammed the system and were making a bunch of withdrawls of our tax dollars. Not in my make up. Of which, I’m glad.
It's strictly a Democrat moocher thing.
Find your way to Galt’s Gulch.
I wouldn’t mind being a hermit... it’s just... well, there is a lot of appeal in finding a like-minded 25 year-old future crazy cat lady to live with me at the hermitage.
I guess I need to go to all those matchmaking websites and try keyword searches for +”freerepublic” +”cats”.
I'm with you about not collecting. I have two relatives who got put on to SSDI. It's an unending steep decline to total helplessness. That's because every time they go to a doctor, they have to be sick enough to get a new medicine, treatment, therapy, or operation and stay on SSDI. They get better, they're cut off.
That's fine for people who are disabled beyond things ever getting better; it's a complete loss of freedom, dignity, and potential for those who aren't. And besides that, they don't get much input in their treatment.
Jim, are you reading any of this? Maybe a new venture of FReeper match making? LOL! FReeper harmony.com?
No doubt there are lots of folks who get it and should. It’s the scammers that drive me bonkers.
They Live, and we’re the only ones wearing the Sunglasses.
I don’t think anyone is ever “cut off”. That’s the problem.
Twice I’ve been sick enough and desperate enough that I applied for SSDI. Once I was having dizzy spells so bad I couldn’t walk, talk, or even think straight. I was turned down because I “wasn’t disabled enough”. And the other time I was having vomiting spasms 20+ times a day for almost a year, but was told I didn’t qualify because I didn’t have a diagnosis. I even wrote to an attorney that second time, but he said the same thing and wouldn’t take my case.
I keep hearing how easy it is to get on disability, but not for me.
Beast.gov lures in the sick, the weak (in health or ethics), and the brazen gibsmedat crowd, then slams closed the iron doors.
Complete subservience to the state... Expansion of the dependent base...
But they're not done yet. There's one more demographic to enslave for the win.
Now that the blood of the Revolution is crying out from the ground loudy and continuously, and the veins of We the People are collapsing from the needle marks, beast.gov is mandating that those whose veins they malevolently destroyed become wards of the state, either through Obamacare subsidy or Obamacare penalty.
I know one who hasn’t been able to work for a year now. A week after he gets approved for SSI, he takes a job off the books. Another, volunteers with the BSA. Can’t work a real job but lives and breathes scouts by putting on hundreds of miles a week on the vechicle running scout and leader camps and meetings all over the state. But, but you can take off those medical miles and volunteer miles off your income tax!!!
Another couple shopped doctors until one would sign them up for free meds to the tune of $2000 a month. How he gets any freebies while making $60/hr is beyond me. She gets SSI and works up to the limit of days and then quits. Rinse and repeat. Ya know, maybe it’s just me but if she is able to work a few months a year, she’s able to work the whole year. Then they got their adult kids on free meds.
The above story is from three years ago. And the rolls of SSDI eaters has skyrocketed since then. Do you have a kid who's overactive? Sign him up for - - what they call in Arkansas - - "crazy checks".
Get a better lawyer. Check daytime TV, late morning, early afternoon. That's where the welfare crowd rolls out of the sack to find their lawyers. Those are the lawyers who really know how to game the system. They've made an industry out of it. If your maladies are genuine, you should have no problem. Good luck.

There’s a website for that: http://planetmoron.typepad.com/
Let me become a monthly donator here (and not a FReeloader), first. Then we can talk about that!
I’m a hermit, but not because of insane people, or bad news or any of that. I just prefer quiet solitude to anything else.
So you don’t even go to the discotheque anymore ?
Believe or not, I actually lived in a warehouse for 3 yrs once.
