I don’t know that your statement is correct. There are many disabled people, whose disabilities are not readily apparent. I walk with a cane, but my real disability is that my brain was oxygen deprived when my heart stopped. Now I have difficulty expressing coherent thoughts, trying to learn things and memory loss. I also can’t see well enough to do close work and my hearing is shot.. I used to be a legal secretary. I can’t do the job anymore and trying to learn anything else is just about impossible.
Early on, I had hopes of going back to work, but that’s impossible. I came from an environment where you received an education, found a job and worked for what you need. When I had to take disability, it was hard for me. I didn’t want to be a charity case. But it was pointed out to me that after having worked for 35 years, it wasn’t charity. I paid into the program and now that I needed the financial support, hell yeah, I’m entitled to it.
I understand the frustration with people receiving benefits who never paid in and who just want a check without working. Sadly though, thanks to the slackers and con artists, the truly disabled often receive no benefits. And all disabled people are treated like parasites.

TRUE.. some are truly disabled.. like the blind..
But then you have your Helen Keller’s.. Ray Charles’s..
Some deserve a helping hand.. but not total entitlement..
ENTITLEMENT is itself an oxymoron..
Laziness is a symptom of entitlement..
Why NOT?.. If you can be a grasshopper why be an ant?..
there is shame with being a grasshopper..
This subject is the cross america is bearing..
and is the very subject america absolutely refuses to face..
and by the way IS THE STRENGTH of communism’s allure..
You know.......... addiction to laziness.. apathy, deadness, drowsiness, dullness, idleness, immobility, immobilization, inactivity, indolence, languor, lassitude, lethargy, listlessness, oscitancy, paralysis, passivity, sloth, sluggishness, stillness, stupor, torpidity, torpor, unresponsiveness....
Yet with all this, you still write better than 90% or more of the high school kids I teach.
One of America's primary problems is that we are discarding the last of the educated population for fear of medical and insurance costs.
I wish you the best.
