Why SHOULDN'T I quit my job and go on welfare?
Seriously.

I'm 31 years old, and I recently was laid off from my job in the mental health field. As a result, I've had to take a job at a supermarket for very little money & no benefits. I've never received a penny in public assistance. However, I am diagnosed with depression and generalized anxiety, so theoretically I would be eligible for disability, right? So why shouldn't I? I've worked since I was in high school, I've paid my taxes... And when I'm in line at my local supermarket I have to watch nearly every customer in front of me pay with food stamps.

Being that we'll be subjected to another 4 years of Barry O, an obvious champion of the welfare state... well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Then you will really know what anxiety and depression are...

Trapped with $700 or less a month to pay all bills for the rest of your life. Not even allowed to save any money. Good luck ever moving or buying even a dirt cheap home in the middle of no where.

Find a way to earn more money with less stress. At age 31 you've still got lots of time.

"Barry" hasn't done a fricking thing to increase welfare or foodstamps.

The social safety net was more generous in the Reagan years.

All these cries about "welfare and foodstamps" are nothing but code for republican racism.

Well, working in the mental health I learned a good bit about how "the system" works. Apparently (at least in PA) a person on disability can still work part time, as long as he/she doesn't earn over a certain amount (I can't recall the exact figure).

The fact is, I don't think I could ever bring myself to pull out an Access/Food Stamp card at a store, I'd be too ashamed. But the thought has crossed my mind.

SSDI ; disability is NOT that easy to get.

Most get denied the first time and have to appeal it.

I have seen cases that take years and some are denied.

Don't bank on it for simple depression and anxiety disorder.

SO SO SO many people have these 2 diagnoses today...and are successfully continuing to work.

You will have a difficult time convincing a board of mental health professionals who oversee these types of cases that you are too disabled not to work.

I'm sure a lot of them aren't there by choice. I have no qualms with those people who are doing their best, and truly are trying to get back on their feet. It's the people leeching off the system I have a problem with. I couldn't be one of those people. I wasn't raised that way.

Well with no jobs out there, more and more people everyday cant afford food,and with the population rate growing at what some say is more than exponential accompanied with Illegals coming into the u.s. for jobs.The housing market is down taking construction out causing job loss for immigrants and americans,Its almost like taking a link out of the food chain.free phones,food stamps,no jobs basically making alot of people become dependent on the government.The more dependent you are on somthing the more power it has in your life.Through it all they still cant see to decriminalize marijuana.Then trying to place medical laws so that everyone must buy insurance or face fines and penalties?Without jobs we cant afford the insurance,let alone fines.which would throw alot of people into a vicious cycle.We need to change these types of issues,in order to regain independence.

I say go for it..I've been milking unemployment for the past 9 months and I can honestly say that I'm completely STRESS FREE. Plus I have a part time job that pays under that table so I can continue to collect my entitlement checks.

I wake up around 9am daily..make myself a nice breakfast, workout, go to the park, read the paper, watch some teevee, check out GLP, have sex with my hot gf..life is GOOD. Come, join the fun ;)

Regardless of how you were raised there could easily come a day when you lose your job.I know you have a job by the arrogance in your messsage.If you didnt have it you would singing a different tune.I was raised that if your down to the wire then you use tools around you and think your way out and do what it takes to survive.Having a job has many factors including location,demand,qualifications.Some people have a different hand of cards than you,So you should be able to respect that.

By working you are contributing to society.

The last conversation you will want to have is what do you do, 'I collect welfare, disability'.

Depression, anxiety is not legitimate for a disability, every human goes through depressive situations and experiences anxiety.

Having a job may open doors to better opprotunities.

Don't be lazy, just live humble and enjoy the small things in life and find put what your co workers do in thier freetime and spend time with them because thier lifestyle will fit with yours from now on.

A republican is a racist because they are against a safety net that has become a life style?
Or because they don't like Obama?
Most Republicans I know support men like Hermain Cain, Allan West, or women like Mia Love. But we are racist if we dont vote for Obama's Marxist policies?
Maybe its others who are racist against whites. Im flipping that argument on every leftie that pulls the race card on me. Im sick of being told Im a racist if I dont like the lefts agenda. Its getting old and frankly is damned stupid.
I find the comments about voting with your vagina and the Republicans being nothing but old white men racist and sexist.

Bring a real argument to the table and not some stupid Chris Matthews Al Sharpton talking point.

Re: Why SHOULDN'T I quit my job and go on welfare?
I keep saying this over and over on GLP, welfare people are not living comfortably in the lap of luxury. When I worked in a Checks Cashing place here in NYC, where I would encounter many, many welfare people, it was very obvious that they were on welfare, by the quality of their clothes. Then there's the mandatory jobs that I believe you have to do. My cousin was on food stamps and she used to have to go to some miserable job.

Stop being lazy and useless to society and contribute.

Our countries are fucked because off all the lazy future teens and young adults living on welfare and disability because they are delinquent stubborn people who are physically able.

I think he or she said is a racist kind of code word to vent on minorities, because in reality the ones on welfare are really no living a comfortable life, yet people here act as if they living the good life of other people's dime.
