They think it's the IN thing to do, a Fad so to speak. The biggest majority of these young adults are to lazy to work, are on drugs and then sign up for SSI and get it!! Once they get the SSI, then that only gives them more money to spend on their drugs and further abuse their bodies. The more generations that are born, the dumber they get!! Most that are in their 20's are lazy, druggies and stupid!! God help this country at the rate it's going because this country sure can't or won't be able to depend on the younger generations to work, pay into social security or help to keep the country on it's feet!! The sorry ass things want the older people to keep on working (as they have all of their lives) so that they can keep on drawing that SSI check each month!! Makes me wonder what kind of generation did we have back years ago that gave birth and raised this next generation!! It just keeps getting worse and worse and isn't going to get any better. We now have all of these young druggies popping out baby after baby, not wanting them, and certainly not raising them to have morals, manners, respect, or even self respect for that matter!!***Shakes Head In Disgust***

I know exactly what you mean, it's very scary times! I wish there were more clinics that would help get these people OFF drugs, instead of the clinics that help push them. As Senator Manchin expressed, I can see people that have worked all their lives, broke down, have legitimate reasons and MRI's, or further test's to show that they actually need the pain medication, but not all these young healthy bunch of lazy asses that only want a cheap high (Snort or Needle)!! All of these young people DO NOT need to be on high doses of pain medications. I mean what medical problem do they actually have that would need high doses of pain medications?? They don't and haven't worked a hard day in their life, so it can't be work related!! If they would work just one day and do some of the jobs that alot of the elder generation had to do, they would die right on the spot!! If you notice though, the biggest majority of the young pill heads are on SSI checks!! It's gotten to be an epidemic with them when it comes to SSI. They sit back on their sorry no good asses, drawing welfare and SSI and do their drugs from daylight till dark, while someone else (Older generation) bust's their ass to pay into the system that allows that lazy person to stay on their SSI check!! If the government would cut them off their freebies, then just maybe they would have to work, if only to support their drug habit!! Makes me sick!!

Absolutly! I can't wait to find a more decent place to live. I left Florida because of all the crackheads on SSI and not many on SSDI. I served my country in the US Navy and National Guard and can't even get a pension from VA. I barely get by on my SSDI, but I worked hard for 40 some years. I have suffered bad back pain for 15 years, yet I do not get pain meds. The VA will not give any, but I do need them. But I would not sell even one to those sorry druggies and junkies. They need to get clean and drug-free, before the good Lord gets back, they'll end up in jail or the cemetery. I have seen girls who were beautiful once but now look like "death warmed over", I mean uuuuhhhggggllllyyyyy! Every word you guys said is so right on. I'm glad you guys posted this.
