    If they meet the stated criteria for "disability" then why not? Being capable of working in some capacity and being legally/statutorially disabled aren't mutually exclusive.

    The stimulus worked fine (as has the backdoor stimulus), and we need more of it. But that isnt going to happen.

    Our ideas of what a stimulus is or should be may be different. I would define stimulus as a flashpoint that starts a fire. Obama's stimulus consisted of throwing money at unions to keep employees for a year or two longer that the states or local governments could no longer afford and had to cut anyway. It was not a flashpoint nor did it stimulate or serve as a catalyst for expansive growth. Essentially it was political payback.

    Everyone on disability is in front of me at the grocery store... with their foodstamps, WIC cards, and cell phones.
    And yes, they're primarily wearing pajamas, time of day irrelevant.

    LOL. Laughable but then again it is not because guess who ultimately pays the price for this nonsense?

    Nice spin!

    Love to hear you explain how you arrived at your conclusion.

    Nah, scratch that it would involve too much denial of the actual facts!

    Here is a little hint -- they got on disability, they don't have to see a doctor anymore. They have achieved their goal, permanent steady income, now on to doing all those things a job gets in the way of!

    The guy I referred to earlier got on disability but it did not stop salmon fishing trips to Alaska, flats fishing trips to the Keys, golf, tennis....it simply got in the way of him showing up to work!

    Provident Unum is still after him. He may have collected approximately 9 K month for 5-6 years last I heard. He's a deadbeat democrat. He still owes me money and I haven't been able to collect. Doubt PU ever will.

    I came to that conclusion with basic mathematics. Each of those questions cover potentially but not necessarily overlapping activities. Therefore, all you can say is that somewhere between the maximum percentage that answer one of the three questions and the sum of the percentage would have engaged in the broad activity covered by those three questions.

    This is actually pretty simple math (basic set theory). Denying otherwise is showing a basic misunderstanding of mathematics as applied to the real world.
