The universe doesn't have safety nets to help collapsing stars or keep objects from falling into a black hole.
Any idea how many get handouts because they hired the right disability lawyer? How many start collecting checks at a young age because they've convinced someone that they're bi-polar, have "adult" ADHD, etc? Oh wait...maybe you're one of them? That would explain why this is so touchy...
When leaving the military, I remember the VA rep telling us how to game the system, how he was considered 50%+ "disabled" even though he appeared healthier than most people his age. This stuff is rampant (VA, SSI, etc.) but SSDI is one of the most abused. But it won't go on forever cause the funds are drying up.
