Can't find a job? Go on disability. You get paid for doing nothing and the unemployment rate goes down.

Win, Win.

I'm going to refrain from giving an economic diagnosis.

QE infinity = "Awesome Stocks"

Not being counted against employable metrics = "awesome jobs recovery"

 

Do we actually believe that the economy is getting better for those in the middle and below?

That's the truth and it's been happening since Clinton. It needs to be addressed.

$85B / 165k = not bad....only takes $51k/month to create a single job. Woohoo!!!

Bernanke has got to pick up the pace if we want to get down to 5%.

 

I have this image of BeBe as Lucy standing beside the conveyor belt, shoving those chocolates (BONDS) anywhere he can to hide them. Now who is Ethel?

My mother in law tried to get disability a while back. She was in a real bad way, in pain on the time, and they still denied her.

 

Easier said than done.

I know a chick in her late 30s who is 100% "disabled" and receives a full check for it.

There is ABSOLUTELY no reason why she cannot stand in McDonalds and drop a few fries in a grease trap.

Nice to see her blow all her money on pills and Facebook "Bejewled".

That's dumb.

 

She should use that money on Hay Day.

People act like it is a piece of cake to get on disability.  @65% of initial disability claims are denied and 85% of appeals are denied.

 

It is pretty hard to get approved for disability.
