Fortunately it doesn’t matter that there are no jobs as a result of Obama’s malicious economic policies, since feeling blue qualifies you for a lifetime pass aboard the disability gravy train:
The Social Security Administration released its annual statistical report on federal disability insurance last month, revealing that at the end of 2011 there was a then-record of 8,575,544 workers collecting federal disability benefits and among them were 1,304,851 doing so because they suffered from “mood disorders.”
The “mood disorders” scam — by which you make a living at others’ expense by declaring yourself to be in a bad mood — is especially popular in Puerto Rico, accounting for one third of disability beneficiaries.
Massachusetts led the 50 states for disabling mood disorders. In that state, 22.8 percent of disability beneficiaries had been diagnosed with a mood disorder. … Among the states, North Dakota — with 9.2 percent — had the lowest percentage of disability beneficiaries diagnosed with a mood disorder.
The rate of mood disorder claims is almost certainly correlated with the prevalence of fraud, as is confirmed by the higher percentage in areas dominated by liberals, who believe they have a right to other people’s money.
With Obama in the White House, it is much easier to qualify as having a mood disorder than it is to find a job:
For example, one way a potential disability beneficiary can qualify with a mood disorder includes presenting medical documentation of “persistence, either continuous of intermittent, of at least four of the following symptoms: Anhedonia or pervasive loss of interest in almost all activities; or Appetite disturbance with change in weight; or Sleep disturbance; or Psychomotor agitation or retardation; or Decreased energy; or Feelings of guilt or worthlessness; or Difficulty concentrating or thinking; or Thoughts of suicide; or Hallucinations, delusions, or paranoid thinking.”
Try to prove that a parasite gaming the welfare system doesn’t have feelings of worthlessness.
