I am sick and tired of people like the OP complaining. The government provided you all tools and opportunity to make money so you should be paying your fair share back to the government. I am disabled and can't work because my knee hurts because I am overweight. People like you should be helping people like me. You are selfish and unAmerican. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30825959
It's people like you that want to take away my complimentary benefits because you are greedy. As an American I am entitled to benefits but greedy people like the OP want to change the rules now because they don't want to pay their fair share. I haven't been able to work for 5 years because my knee hurts and now the OP wants to force me to work.
While I may be empathetic towards your plight as I dont know what the reason is for your overweight condition. If its truly from a medical issue and not " DingDongitis", say a thyroid problem, then sure, do what you gotta do.
But know this, karmas a bitch. You dont get to tell her she's unamerican because she's pursuing the American dream instead of watching Walking Dead and Shark tank all week long to earn your check.
You sound like you must have been born a victim and will likely perish as one.
If you were in fact a red, white,, and blue bleeding American, then you'd take advantage of gubbmint cash to get into a community college and learn a trade so you can earn more than your disability check pays out in 6 months post tax.
InfoTechnology is a booming industry that would offer you quick advancement, a raise with every job hop, and a great place to have a business degree or MDA in business. You would fast track it to a management position just as fast as you applied yourself. There's a few industry big boys that even do 100% work from home while bringing in a six figure salary without having to get outside of your comfort zone or damaging your knee.
Add full benefits and you'd have DR care to help diagnose your weight ssue and cover meds.
So instead of concentrating on GLP, hit up Monster dot com,create a resume, bit torrent some tech books on the major positions, install VMware workstation, and start in your own sandbox until you feel confident enough to get thru an interview.
I moved my mom to Dallas after talking her into the job offerings and benefits of being in the area. She had a job making $15 an hour for a PC help desk service tech 1 week of moving here. Until then, she barely knew how to turn on her computer. Within 6 months she was in the 60k range. Granted I had the contacts and learning resources to help her get started. And had she stuck with it, I could have helped her make 6 figures in 2 to 3 years time or used her to help manage and start my own business.
She could have just gone and qualified for disability back in 2000, but instead of letting her back pain from years of physical labor and surgery, or her carpel tunnel syndrome get in the way of her starting a new career.
There is no reason you couldn't start your own business using Skype to remotely service someones PC, or hell, selling web can viewing while showing some fat snatch getting worked by a spatula.
Now show us you have what it takes to be a true tax avoiding American...
