We never let anything good leak out about a group we don't like. Back in the day. If a man was beating his wife, he would get a midnight visit by the KKK and taken out and beaten severely. That man rarely beat his wife again.

in 2003  I suffered a back injury at work. I was routed to a workmans comp doctor who quickly dismissed my claim. It took 6 months for it to heal. However I became unemployable at that job because of the restrictions my own doctor gave me. I filed for disability and was denied.I decided to keep on trying to work. I held some menial jobs til 2005, where I took a job in a flooring manufacturing company. I sustained a torn meniscus injury and had to have surgery to fix it.In 2006 I took a job in a refrigerated warehouse which resulted in medial epicondylitis and had to have surgery to fix it. I lost my job there because of a work related injury. By then we were up to our necks in this recession. While trying to find work for 5 years I found no one wanted to hire an older worker. I am now disabled and filed for my disability only to find out it isn't there. I paid into social security since I was 18. I guess I can get supplimental security income which is at best $700.00 a month. I feel I'm being punished for trying to do the right thing. If I wait 5 years I can take early ssi, or 10 years for full. I guess I can eat air.
