I have been known to gripe about people being on disability who could work in some capacity if they tried, but the one thing I have NEVER griped about in my life is helping out those who are truly unable to make a living for themselves.


That's good to know But I was actually thinking about some my friends on FB, rather than folks here at the Pod. Y'know the ones...those who are convinced that everyone who receives assistance is faking it.

My kids actually work, albeit in a sheltered workshop, but they earn money, and spend it just like the rest of us.

They committed suicide (self inflected death). It was NOT euthanasia.


Seriously?? Then why are we having this discussion? And why did they go to Belgium? And why did it make the news, no other suicide does, unless the person is a celebrity.

Actually, no. Their doctor euthanized them after they requested it.

And if I recall, they were citizens of Belgium.
