skyesix:"One thing that has always impressed me about teabaggers is the sheer number .....friends."


Yep, if you work in a place for 17 years, and there's 2000 people there.....and they each have 10-20 friends...that's 20,000 people.


Some of them are liberal type weenies who get on SS when they can. You watch on the TV, and there are 50 ads a day saying 'if you've been injured at work, or have a condition where you can no longer work, call the legal experts at XXX XXX XXXX and we have an excellent record of getting your DESERVED social security disability payments.

It's a racket and of course, they have a whole raft of doctors who will testify, after a 15 minute exam, and some other 'medical tests' that indeed you have such a bad back, or knee joints, or chronic headaches or pain......that you'll get your SS disability.

What, we now have DOUBLE the number of disabled people in just 10 years while the population went up 10-14%?

Geez....I'd bet that skyesix has dozens of friends of friends who took the SS disability route to 'early retirement'. It's growing by the millions a year. Either that or she has no friends that have friends.

Sorry to hear your circle of friends is so small skyesix!
