Talk about having one foot in the grave!
Or maybe he broke it off in somebodies a*s.

A little light on his feet, he might have a leg up on the competition.
Yup, you nailed it!

FYI people - the mail and some other sections of the media have been running a vicious anti disabled campaign for some time now -
here is a link to the origional story : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-benefits.html
NOTE the first words of the story " A scrounger who almost died after cutting his own foot off so he could stay on jobless benefits has been told he might still qualify for work despite his amputation. " emphasis mine
as many of you will be unaware the current government is targeting and victimising sick and disabled people - blaming US for the economic problems of the uk - not incompetent politicos - not greedy bankers - but genuinly disabled and sick citizens who have paid into the system - HAVE worked - and now have to claim a pittance to live on or to be able to retain something like a normal life
so far there have been at least 10 or more suicides attributable to the stress being placed on genuine claimants by the pernicious french firm being paid millions to do "assessments " ( read kick as many off disability to save money as possible ) - and we have ALL been branded as "scroungers " and worse - the level of disabled HATE CRIME is on the increase in the UK - and I myself have experianced verbal abuse at the hands of those who , instead of finding out the facts , believe what they read in the gutter press and what comes out of the foul mouths of our supposedly caring politicos - needless to say my "accusers " got short shrift from me - and soon set to rights - as my body may be FUBAR - but my mind and mouth are NOT
SO PLEASE PEOPLE FIND OUT THE FACTS before believing everything you read - there is such a thing as bias reporting
the disabled ( and i agree there ARE those who work the system - and i condemn them the same as anyone ) - are getting used as skapegoats in the UK and else where for OTHERS failings and for political decisions that are now coming home to roost - in fact SOME of us see history repeating its self - as many of you will be unaware that before hitler and the nazis started on the jews - they started putting the disabled and sick to death as "inferior " specimens - and also whipped up "public opinion " against them - claiming that they where a burden on the state ( go read some history if you doubt this )
WE disabled in the UK feel much the same today
and as to making light of this poor guys OBVIOUS mental problems - well sorry but supposed humor on the zed has reached a NEW low - shame on you
I WILL catch up with YOU later - until then try not to p1ss off too many people - you may have to spend eternity with them !!
I'm beginning to have serious worries about folks in Austria. There have been cases in recent years of locking daughters in cellars and incest and illegitimate babies, and the big one was that artist bloke who wrote a book and grew a funny toothbrush moustache under his nose, and lots of other things which were not funny.
The point of the story is that he PURPOSELY made himself "Disabled" so as to defraud the Govt. Had he not done it, he would have been perfectly healthy to work. What he didn't want to do WAS work. He wanted to be a SLACKER and feed off the Govt Dole. So rather than work like he should, he sliced off his own foot.
People who are disabled do not do it to themselves in almost all cases. They are VICTIMS of Accidents or disease, but not something they chose themselves. I am sure they would most ASSUREDLY desire to be WITHOUT the ailment and able to work. But this RB DID IT TO HIMSELF, Just so he could claim disablement. He really should be prosecuted for it. (or locked up in the FUNNY FARM with the key thrown away!)
My mother in law attempted suicide three times over her living and work situation. She's on disability right now, and rightfully so. At first, I thought she was just a slacker too. but now I realize she does have a mental disability. Hell, I should have realized that 15 years ago when she held my son (then only a year old) over the rail of an apartment complex balcony on the third floor.
I'm not condoning what this guy did, but it appears that he has issues. And I know I wouldn't want to work around anyone with that mindset.
"America's quiet warriors are the legion of ham radio operators, 700,000 of them, who are always at ready for backup duty in emergencies – amateur, unpaid, uncelebrated, civilian radio operators, during and after floods and fires and tornadoes. After the 9/11 attacks, hams were indispensable in reuniting friends and families. Most recently it was they who expedited the search for debris after the Columbia Explosion , and right now, at this moment, they are involved in homeland security to a greater degree than you would want me to make public."
