its always easy to blame drugs. no one has said anything about the disabled or those that can't work.
who hires disabled people here? some of them need jobs but are discriminated against becase they have MS or epilepsy or something else people don't understand.
There are plenty of local businesses who hire disabled, they're called equal opportunity employers. Many disabled here find it easy to live on disability and refuse to work! Face reality!

There is also a system problem.... If the disabled person gets a job w/o health care, they are declared ABLE and loose their Medicare coverage.... so they do no work at all

That's true, but I work with the disabled and know that many of them would rather collect disability and not work at all! Let's not discriminate... some disabled people are lazy too!

Stop blaming Obama! The fact is that people here are tweekers, drunks, and too damn lazy to work! People here have always been lazy and worthless, that's why Carlsbad is in the condition that its in.

Many tweekers, drunks, and lazy people are not on welfare. They live with mommy and daddy at 40-50 yrs. There was a soup kitchen here feeding these losers as well! They didn't have to buy food! All the more money for booze and drugs! Are you against the community kitchen also?

If the govt would not make it so easy for people to get s.s.,welfare and other free handouts,people would be forced to either get a job and be a productive citizen,or starve. Is this too hard for you to understand? Or are you just in love with the govt?

Did you know that under Obama more people have filed for,and received disability? just wondering, since your posts bounce back and forth.It is Obama who does not know how to lead this Country.

How about the the way Employers are allowed to Employees! I have had a miserable last 2 years because of Employers! They can cuss you, mistreat you, talk you any way they want! Because New Mexico is a Fire at Will State! When I've worked I gave it my all! It goes un-unnoticed unless your an a@@ kisser! This I will not do! I am not on Welfare, I am not lazy! Then they Lay you Off! So maybe the Employers should learn to treat there Employees better! And quit letting people suck up to you! No the is no Equal Oppurtinity Employer In this Town! And I'm sure it's like that everywhere else too!
