Don't get me wrong, Greene County buy sell swap is a really good thing. But there is a lot of people receiving disabilty checks that are making a living on the side selling stuff. Our question is if they have all the time and energy to do this, why can't they hold a job?

Many people are talking about it, and it is a good question. Whats your thoughts?

I would venture to guess that at least 90% of the losers here in Greene COunty aren't no more disabled than I am.. They know how to play the system and cry "oh I have a bad back" and managed to get disability It's a shameful joke.

Hell just the disability fraud in Greene county alone would balance the state budget if it was investigated.

just to let most people no. its very hard to get disability these days. most of them must have got there check started years ago. but you can draw disability and still make so much money a month.that dont mess up your check. just ask the social security office, they will tell you the same. i agree some people dont deserve it and still get it.but as i said they must have gotten it started years ago.what gets me is some young people getting a check and could work just as much as i do. its like its backward.they get disability because there nerves or back hurts or have to many kids etc. but my father had cancer and was told by the doctor he had nine months to live. this was turned in to social security office. remind you he worked hard all his life. and they turned him down. he had cancer that has no cure.and was turned down. well he died six months later didnt even make it nine months. got his first check started a week after he died. it come in the mail. needless to say he didnt need it then.but some twenty yr old can run in and get it. i dont understand that part of the system.but you can make so much without it hurting your check.just depends if they are reporting it to social security or not.

It's all about using the system and abusing it. The druggies and loser white trash have figured it out.

It's not just on facebook but everywhere. What goes around hopefully will come back around to bite them in the rear.

just like the girls selling their WIC on there

You mean to tell me that if someone is on disability they can't sell THEIR things? I think it is funny how everyone that 'pays taxes' thinks they should be able to say how much goes to what? Do you even know how much of your check goes to all that? You think that $50 came out of your check just to go to people sitting on their asses? I mean, come on. B_tching about it on here is not going to make all your tax fits go away! I'm sorry, but you can't tell someone that they can't sell there stuff because you pay your taxes!!! If you got a problem with what someone is doing why not confront them. Not come on an anonymous site and rant. What good is that doing? Then again, you won't get far even if you did do something about it.

It is their stuff they are selling. Are you saying a person on disability can not have a yard sale? Because basically, that's what they are doing. Only they do it online. Who put you in charge of judging people anyway?

Maybe they dont make enough on disability for a decent living. I for one, am thankful I am able to work and make a decent salary but some that I work with don't. They have to work @ another source such as working on cars just to make ends meet.
