If they cant take care of themselves...how were they caring for his elderly father before he died? Sounds like they smelled the chance to jump into his house when he was on his way out....come on, the entire rest of the family wont talk to them?!??! They are scammers!

Is it possible for you ( Nagy's ) to apply for Low Housing Assistance? your State does have a Housing Authority. I realize there is a waiting list, but because you are also disabled this would probably qualify you for a quick placement.

I think it's sad that some people will sit in judgement of other's, yes there are many who use a wheel chair and manage to hold a job but there are different medical reasons why they need one .. please don't judge.

I say Scam. In the picture CT post had, he doesn't look hunched over to me.
They have jobs for people in wheelchairs, that why they started the American with Disablilties act.
They just don't want to work. And I'm upset with the Ct post for writing this article.
There are so many people that really need the help and don't ask for help. These people are slackers and are asking for everything.
they need to:
1 GROW UP AND FACE REALITY
2 They can afford a car why not pay rent
3. The cats can go to the Cat project
4 GET A JOB even if it's MCDonald's

If they were black or hispanic they would have no problem getting help -- it is because they are white. I am not racist although some people reading this will think that, but this country caters to minorities and does nothing to help white people. God help them I hope some good soul out there can offer then a low rental.

My family doesn't speak to me because one of my so-called sisters lied to them about me -- you don't know what the story is so why don't you shut up! I hope I am not bleeding on the street and you are walking by because for sure you would leave me there to die. What happened to taking care of our brothers? Have you ever taken care of an elderly parent? I have and it is not easy. You should be ashamed.

I hope you never find yourself down and out or contract an illnes like MS because you wouldn't be saying what you are saying if you knew what it was like and how hopeless and depedent you are on others. Have you ever had back problems?????? They are devastating!!! Why don't you face reality that perhaps these people need our help.

Betsey I agree with you 100 %
There are people in Wheel Chairs
who are able to work, and some can't.

And yes Back problems for some can be
more severe then others.

First of all there are people who are writing about these people that claim they work but can not even spell simple words. I would think you employer must be pretty desperate to of hired you in the first place. Secondly who are any of us to judge what he real story is about these people. If you want to help then step up to the plate or just leave them alone. What a callous society we have turned into and that is a darn shame!
