There should be television shows which celebrate hard work and savings
rather than celebrities and splashy consumerism?

You can make all the television shows you want, but getting people to watch them, that's the trick. It's like eating vegetables; you can make them available cheap, but people are still gonna go to McDonald's and drink Cokes.

Instead of government-paid disabilities there should be government
paid jobs that the less disabled can do to earn their disability

Now you have a gigantic infrastructure (managers! factories! billing!) to run and nobody's going to go for that. Personally, I would increase the staff of fraud enforcers, and offer bounties for people who uncover disability fraud. I'm totally in favor of disability insurance; I'm totally against its abuse.

Other than the tea-party adherents.

Isn't it the tea-party guys who are cutting the enforcement arm of the IRS, the fraud detection of the VA and Medicare, and slicing the bone of almost every other government program, whether it's deserved or not? You know, "if it's government, it must be bad. But keep your hands off my Social Security!"
