    As for the gov't meddling in our lives, that is a lib specialty. I hate it. But in a case where they set up a program using OUR money, the gov't owes it to us to makes sure the program is not rife with fraud like so many of the gov't programs are.

    Obama and his gang is already doing a good enough job of turning Americans against other Americans.
    I think it is our duty as citizens to report such things when there is known abuse of any system using OUR money. If I knew of someone gaming the system like what was described, I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the phone, neighbors or not. It's wrong and should be reported. IMHO

She figured out she could get $400 more per month in Social Security based upon her first husband so she divorced husband #2 and reapplied based on her first husband. She is now getting the increased social security.

    Obama phones? Her 90 year old mother living on Social Security got a free Obama phone with unlimited minutes. She gave it to her daughter to use. Working the system, working the system... it irks me to hear her brag about it.
    Helen, your post points out a need for us to get things changed. Thanks for posting it.

    I doubt that what has been explained here is against the rules. Sorry to say but having turned in a drug dealer who was doing things against the law and seeing no results I can of think the powers that be as useless drones. I am not trying to influence anyone against turning them in because if it were me I would turn them in. Just stating my experience.

    People on SSI are allowed to work and should if they are able. Not sure about how that will change what they draw though. It's a crazy country we have developed !

    You guys all sound real tough. I used to be that way too when I was younger. Made my wife mad all the time for getting after people for parking in handicap spots when they were obviusly not handicapped etc...

    Like I said, go over to the main board and read the thread on Pat Mchale and think for 1 minute about how short life is... You get in the wrong persons face these days for a second... and it can be over. It's not like when we were growing up and you might get a black eye... These days you get shot.

    Didn't say get in somebody's face. Just pick up the phone and make a call. That is not tough talk at all, it's the moral and right thing to do. "You don't do things right once in a while. You do them right all the time!!!" Vince Lombardi
