Is there Collusion between Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability and State Disability — FOR PROFIT?

Is the 14th Amendment being violated routinely, for the profits of the few?

Have you done any research on Government Misconduct and Corruption as it relates to the Injured and Disabled Communities?

Do you have any citable research? Injured Workers often complain about the #MagicMath of Social Security and Long Term Disability carriers that leaves them impoverished and unable to return to work and constant continued battles with SSA and LTD? How can that be RIGHT?

A similar post was shared in the WorkCompCentral LinkedIn group.  David DePaolo would care.   We’ll see if anybody will.

Private responses welcome via LinkedIN or atWorkCompLinda@gmail.com  David DePaolo would care.

#POTUS was also mentioned in the first post and tweet, as it seems to be one of the #SWAMPY issues that needs executive intervention.

 

 

On Labor and Health… Why does it take #SSA years and years to calculate basic retro pay with numerous miscalculations after multiple fraudulent denials of claims with mean remarks like, ‘yeah, we know you have a brain injury but it’s not bad enough to keep you from being a salesperson’?

They still can’t get the numbers right and want to omit records for the Judge to make decisions based on incomplete evidence, and evidence omitted with apparent intend to trick the judge into making a poor decision?

Yikes. False Evidence Appearing Real. UnUsual in a Workplace injury, huh?

I can’t imagine a Judge appreciating being fooled like that, can you? I get to be the bearer of the bad news. We tried to play nice. Oh well.

We’ll have to keep an eye on Amazon’s listings for GOVERNMENT MISCONDUCT AND CORRUPTION FOR THIS ONE, HUH?

Note:

14th Amendment | Constitution | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute

No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

MORE FOLLOWS… Watch for updates in MyWorkCompCoach.com and AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com — it should prove to be an interesting year end wrap up.

Gotta run. Gotta re-study DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATHS and get that research and report done and sent off to the Judge and a few other additional parties. WISH ME LUCK! Continue to

Update to Injured Workers Who Have Submitted Stories — and to Friends of Injured Workers!

WorkComp? Path to Poverty? Road to Hell? DETOUR AHEAD! Did you nominate THIS blog?

Hi and thank you for sharing Your WorkComp Story or inquiry recently.

Some people receiving this specific email may also be Friends of Injured Workers.

If you open this today, and if you’re so moved, feel free to nominate my blogs to the Injured Worker category of the industry BEST BLOGS of 2016 event.  The deadline is today….here’s the link.

Here’s the nominating link. Must be submitted by today to count in the industry events! 

Name of Blog:                     Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains

Primary Author:                     LINDA AYRES, INJURED WORKER – Disabled, Blogger4Freedom
Reasons for Nomination:     WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW;   One of her mottos is:
                                                   “I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORK COMP SURVIVOR.  BE ONE, TOO”
(Write whatever you like…. you can even say your reason for the nomination is you don’t blog yet, and she does, and she tells it like it is, or….simply say, BECAUSE SHE ASKED A BUNCH OF US TO at the first of the month and again today)!
Your Name:
Your Email:                            [create a NEW email just for your WorkComp ‘media’ work…
Your Telephone:                   [your call…looks like a required field]
Your Employer:                    [I put “Disabled, Blogger4Freedom on the nominations I made]

Bottom line, we all know the horrors and atrocities of WorkComp and we all want solutions for the Common Good, one person at a time.

If you haven’t shared YOUR WorkComp Story yet, here’s the questionnaire link again:

What’s YOUR WorkComp Story?

As you probably realize, I am a WorkComp Survivor….. brain injury sustained 1/9/12….. “I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR.”

The parties in my case “reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement” and since I know what I know, I cannot just walk away.  I will do what I can to incite more discussions on the real and horrific issues that every Injured Worker in America, in Canada and Australia face….. for starters.

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW……   As individual cases are resolved, each win is a win for us all.  I was told repeatedly, by professional friends, “GET OUT OF THE WORK COMP SYSTEM BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.  IT WILL KILL YOU.”

Easier said than done, particularly with a brain injury.   The stories I have received via email and by phone make my situation look more like a “walk in the park” comparatively!  I am so sorry for the pain and suffering you still endure.   All together, we’ll find a way out of this, kicking and screaming, occupying virtually, and dodging the rads.

Below is a copy of a post on LinkedIn.  That’s where the INFLUENCERS ARE.   If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, consider getting one immediately.

You may also seriously consider a Facebook PAGE (use WorkComp or Injured Worker in the name) and Twitter account and a fresh gmail or email account….include WorkComp or InjuredWorker in your user names, along with Pinterest.

Most importantly, A BLOG from which to document and tell your own story.

KEEP IT SEPARATE FROM YOUR PERSONAL EMAILS AND PERSONAL LIFE.  USE IT AS A MICROPHONE….


Speak to the influencers in WorkComp and in your Industry.  We’ll talk more about how to build your own database and sphere of influence.

If YOU are UNABLE to do these things, enlist a friend, family member or neighbor to help you.  PEOPLE WILL HELP, IF YOU ASK CLEARLY AND SPECIFICALLY…… from a point of power, not victim-hoood, nor from learned helplessness.

If you have an attorney, you might check for counsel on these suggestions.  I know of but few attorneys who have actually protected their clients, and secured medical care and moved toward resolution.

I am working on mastering either Mail Chimp or GoDaddy’s email campaigns to better stay in touch with each of you, and those to join us.  Till I figure out how to use the email campaigns, if you don’t want to receive further emails, please simply hit REPLY and put REMOVE FROM LIST in the subject line, thank you.  (If you know how to easily use Mail Chimp, please please put it in writing so we can all learn….and maximize impact!)

For now, we’ll simply stick with BLOGS,  E-mails and BCC copies.  Build you own database, and create your own mailing list, too.  We Work Like Ants!  Remember that.


I know of only 3 Injured Worker Blogs……the industry has many, and they annually recognize their Top 25.  Does that tell you that injured workers that DO NOT have blogs are essentially “unarmed” in the fight for their lives?  That’s what it tells me.  Vlogs count.  Podcasts count! Webinars Count.  eCourses count. Phone calls count. Posts count. Pins count. Tweets count.  The fire-power is in the BLOG.

do no harm but take no shit either

Quick story…. a doctor, in 2013, suggested that since I was blogging about the Fukushima nuclear disaster pre-injury, that it might help me to “write about” my WorkComp experiences.  I thought the doctor meant BLOG ABOUT IT, that’s what I heard.

 

I was afraid.  I used to be extremely brilliant, and I was afraid that people would know about and judge my ‘cognitive deficits’ but I wrote anyway.  

 

I tip-toed around about it.  When I finally realized that “OMG.  My LIFE IS AT STAKE HERE!!” is when I began to blog openly and without fear or caution.  

 

In the group, NAIDW.org – National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers – in one group, an injured law enforcement guy told us all that we needed to start “naming names” and I thought, “Oh! Yikes.  Ok, if you say so!” so I listed all the doctors I had seen to date, by name, with diagnosis etc……  the rest is what it is! 

We have received a few stories that apparently were not submitted to the ProPublica/NPR investigative reporters last year, or were not selected.

If you have not read the series last year, you must.  It has rattled the cages of WorkCompsters, and momentum is building….and you can be assured that the WorkCompsters will do everything possible, “by any means necessary” to ensure their billlions of dollar profits are not impacted by the bad news reaching the public about WorkComp practices.

Google it:  Insult to Injury:  The Demolition of Workers Compensation

Most all Injured Workers indicate a willingness to share, Anonymously.  OK…..We’ll be creative. Watch and FOLLOW/SUBSCRIBE both blogs, AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com

and MyWorkCompCoach.com

Focus on what you realllly reallly want and need to get out from under the oppression and destruction of Workers Compensation, plan to share further on that.

It’s not about money—-it’s about your health, your life and your ability to survive and compensate for your injuries and disabilities.   BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT; the Universe tends to meet our exact expectations.

ps…. I was nominated and selected as one of the top 4 finalists at the WorkCompCentral CompLaude Awards event in 2014.  I met several very nice people at that event, and I ‘crashed’ a few other industry conferences and collected some business cards and marketing materials and others, and I was also invited as a guest of a Judge to visit the Exhibit Hall of the California Applicant Attorney’s Association Winter 2014 conference, where I met more wonderful people. In 2016 I was invite by a kind attorney to attend their Winter Conference, anniversary gala celebrating ’50 or 60 years of protecting injured workers’ [That’s questionable!]
.
 .
Anyhow, CAAA made it clear that NO INJURED WORKERS ARE WELCOME AT ANY OF THEIR EVENTS, so I accepted a dis-invitation to the event….  You know the ol sayings…”Something is terribly wrong in this country….”  and  ‘We do not forgive; We do not forget….EXPECT US.”
I have tried to encourage these groups to open their hearts and doors to Injured Workers, with little success. WorkComp Central, to date, is the only group I have found that embraces Injured Workers and warmly welcomes them. To save some time and energy, I will copy also the people on that email list, so that perhaps we can forge some links over the chasms of “us and them” and …. dunno, might make this a blog, too…..
.
For the people in the WorkComp industries, we will be organizing some interviews and a possible TELE-SUMMIT to share your perspective on what needs to happen for immediate WORKCOMP TRANSFORMATION…short of ‘SENDING IN THE NATIONAL GUARD’ to protect injured workers from the current systems.   WATCH THE BLOGS FOR COMING SOON DETAILS…. EXPECT US.

Did you nominate THIS blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains, for the Best Blogs event by WorkersCompensation.com yet?  Thanks!    It’s been a public service blog since Summer of 2013.  It even includes some scattered resources that will be reformatted into a better directory this year.

Here’s the nominating link. Must be submitted by today to count in the industry events!

#Blog4TheCure!  #Blog4Freedom!  March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.  Got Brains? #DodgeTheRads2

                 Brain Injury – BEFORE and AFTER WorkComp

Ask also about Opiate Traffic and “Failed Surgeries” then FOLLOW THE MONEY! 

Ask about a WorkComp Insurance plan that could provide “immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care” where doctors are screened for “Angel of Death” characteristics and set up a FRAUD/CRIME HOTLINE directly to DOJ for Injured Workers to contact in the event of suspected fraud, collusion and worse. 

Equip all Injured Workers with a Livescribe Pen (iPhone & Android adaptable) to RECORD ALL MEDICAL/LEGAL EVALUATIONS AND HEARINGS, with a designated DOJ address to submit recordings of suspicious events.  It would save dollars on the SS-type wasteful ’employee surveillance’ procedures used also to deny medical care. Cops and Firefighters find them reprehensible, too!

Make sure your LTD policy is not just a money-fronting scam that tries to confiscate any retro-pay when costs are shifted to SSA.  Injured Workers refer to the practice as “MAGIC MATH” where insurance companies are relieved of any and all risks, and risks and costs are shifted anywhere else but to the carriers. 

Right now, in the USA and elsewhere, Injured Workers have essentially NO PROTECTION from anywhere. What a shame!!!

If you’re afflicted by WorkComp maladies, or know someone who is, check with your State Senator and if it has escalated to embrace SSA, check with your Congressional Representative for help. 

Remember the October 2015 letter from Federal Lawmakers offering law enforcement assistance.  Pass it on to your own representatives, too, and to your friends and neighbors, along with the response from Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez.  You can find those links also in this blog:

WORKCOMP MUST CHANGE NOW.  Do not expect the highly profitable industries to change because it’s the right thing to do. That is contrary to their playbook of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

Before social media, the ‘dirty little secrets’ were well kept. WE, THE PEOPLE, DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT.

The industry apparently needs law enforcement encouragement.

Send in the National Guard and ensure they have a seat at the upcoming ‘secret’ National Discussions in ‘the Heartland.’ 

Then let’s have some open webinar summits and take it to the Virtual Streets!   #OccupyVirtually!  #DodgeTheRads!  You know why!

Have a nice day, and be sure to VOTE for ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS and MY WORKCOMP COACH.

Sticks and stones and…attorney disbarment? Did Dr. Rosalind Griffin commit perjury?

“Sticks and stones and…attorney disbarment? Will the First Amendment lose out when IME doctor files grievance to conceal her testimony in injury case from the public? “


 

Final thought

“I do not know what the Attorney Grievance Commission will do to me.”

“But, I do know that I’m willing to face whatever comes next. The public needs to know about what Dr. Griffin did. The public needs to know what far too many doctors who perform routine IMEs are doing every single day to people.”

“Consider for a moment what could have happened to my client in this case if the IME exam had not been recorded.  What might have happened to my client if the jury believed that he was improving, as Dr. Griffin said, or that his proverb interpretation proved he did not have a traumatic brain injury, as she testified?”

“Imagine how my client must have felt, being forced to listen to this doctor testify at trial about things he never said!”

“Exposing IME abuse – What happened to my client in this personal injury case can happen to anyone”

“I posted this blog about Dr. Griffin because it’s important that people understand that what this doctor did to my client in this case is not unusual. It is happening to innocent people injured in automobile accidents who are forced to see IME doctors, just as my client had to see Dr. Griffin.”

“Did Dr. Griffin fabricate a medical history of chronic illnesses/conditions which could be used to mitigate what the defendant who hired her would have to pay at trial?”

WorkComp Litigation vs Mediation for Mitigation of Losses of Life Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness

“Why, then, does the industry push claims into litigation?” – David DePaolo, WorkCompCentral.com

Is that a trick question, David? Hint: It’s the business model of profits before lives, by any means necessary, without fear or caution.

Lucy Occupy Says:  “Collect a national list of Mediators with WorkComp expertise – and share with Injured Workers in every state.  That may reduce costs and save lives!  #OccupyVirtually!   #Blog4TheWorkCompCures  #RomanoSyndrome  because WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW!!!  Blog on!”

Nurse Sue Says:  “Everyone needs to eat, sleep, move, eliminate, and be comfortable; hence everyone who engages in a healthcare encounter should be assessed by a nurse.”

DePaolo BlogSpot WHY FOR ATTORNEYS 1 18 2016
Read the entire article here http://daviddepaolo.blogspot.com/2016/01/why-for-attorneys.html

As to your guess that “Litigation involves a minority of claims…” that sounds like DIR stats?

Perspective from the Streets of Work Comp indicate it may be because attorneys alleging to represent injured workers are not litigators, they fail to represent and protect, in some States, ‘for over 50 years’ leading to tremendous unrest and sentiments such as:

under the bus

They can be file churners playing the numbers game and by working hundreds of files, paying little no attention to any specific case, the average attorney may make some money after the squeezed injured workers — denied medical care for years, and denied TTD benefits for years, give up and settle when at death’s door.

Mayor Betsy in Fort Worth came to the aid of one of her injured police officers, very publicly! Remember how she incited some investigations to Corvel’s alleged practices of harassment and intimidation last year? Let’s hope their Unions back them.

In LA, LA Times seem to be biased and writes regular periodic stories about Cops and Firefighters caught exercising or whatever while on the rest and wait and wait and wait for medical care programs of the CA WorkComp systems. They play ‘blame the victim’ that they don’t return to work for years…. but without medical care, few injured workers do get to return to work.

I hope your panel discussion on The Demolition of Workers Compensation at the CAAA Winter 2016 Conference went well, and that y’all discussed the harsh and horrible realities of WorkComp, and the failures of CA attorneys to adequately protect injured workers. More importantly, let’s hope you and the panel incited discussion of ways that they can indeed begin to protect injured workers.

Injured Workers, in the interim, will work to #Blog4TheWorkCompCure and for the cure for  #RomanoSyndrome!

EVEN NURSES ARE BLOGGING FOR THE CURES!

  1. Linda Ayres

    Thank you Sue Naylor Clark! You do tell it good! I will put it to good use! It could help in the world of WorkComp! “Everyone needs to eat, sleep, move, eliminate, and be comfortable; hence everyone who engages in a healthcare encounter should be assessed by a nurse.”

Sorry CAAA wouldn’t let me in to either the exhibit hall or your panel, and the contempt and disdain my request to them was met with… was unforgettable and … unforgivable. I met some very wonderful people there in 2014, when I was courteously given an Exhibit Hall pass and Guest Badge.

Anonymous for most of history was a woman

“INJURED WORKERS VERBOTEN” at CAAA Events, it’s just the rules?   How an organization does one thing, usually exemplifies how do everything. Remember when women were kept out of private “good ol’ boyz” clubs?   Are we looking at age, gender, disabilities and economic status discrimination by the private clubs of CAAA that allege to protect Injured Workers?

Time for change for the next 50 years, imho.  How many members of USA attorney associations  quietly decline to represent injured workers when 1, 2, 3, 4 or more of their fellow CAAA members “DIDN’T DO THEIR JOB” or “DIDN’T PROPERLY DEVELOP THE MEDICAL RECORDS.”   Those letters of ‘non-engagement’ countless injured workers seeking competent legal counsel  receive do sound fancy, but they are just more evidence of a pathetic CYA mentality of too many members of CAAA, from a Workers Comp Street Perspective.

“If I was an injured worker at home wondering how I would pay my bills, I would be sick to see this,” said one insurance company manager who asked not to be named…”

“A top manager for a major insurance company recalled standing amid the hoopla a few years back when a company CEO turned to her and marveled: “All of this because somebody got hurt at work.”

“This year, there were conferences in 104 cities in 41 states — more places than in the country song, “I’ve Been Everywhere.” One hotel, the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, hosted three workers’ comp conferences in 2015…”

“Highlighting the bounty, there are now more than 150 workers’ comp conferences a year. There’s one for the American Society of Workers Comp Professionals, one for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Professionals and one for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Claims Professionals. At least 26 have golf tournaments.”

At the national workers’ comp and disability expo, vendors gave away Apple watches, bottles of bourbon, and a Vespa scooter. There were free massages and shoeshines, a superhero caricature artist, more than one mentalist, and a live alligator named Spike.

“But over the past two decades, a cottage industry of middlemen has emerged, which some have dubbed the “workers’ comp industrial complex.”

AN INJURED WORKER COMMENTS:

Some people can work 45-50 years without knowing a thing about WorkComp….Count me amongst the ‘madder than hell’ members of the Working Class, disabled by WC!  Do you see what injured workers see?!!!

IE: One icy slip and fall backwards on ice and boom….there went another life. Did you see “Concussion”?  Football players are yes, Injured Workers!  How about the soldiers returning from Central Asia with brain injuries, radiation poisoning and missing limbs?  Do we have your attention yet, Americans?

Labor Secretaray Tom Perez Civil Rights

Let’s open the doors of all the fancy conferences to the Injured Worker Community…. perhaps a part of the admission…. BRING AN INJURED WORKER to listen to the panels, and walk the exhibit halls and collect data and meet real people,  and yes, break bread with the folks profiting  ‘Because someone got hurt at work.’

Include panels of Injured Workers at every event…you’ll realize then that we are not numbers…we are human beings, being destroyed for the profits of the few.  You could be next.

OccupyVirtuall! 99%
OccupyVirtually! 99%

#OccupyVirtually…. save the expense and use it for medical care to actually treat injured workers, vs evaluations upon evaluations to deny medical care.

Heck, invite local politicians, or members of their field staffs to see first hand what’s really happening in WorkComp industries to their constituents.

Critical in California, and everywhere else!  Be sure to include reps from EDD and SSA… Involve the LTD carriers, too.  Bring all those who profit ‘because somebody got injured at work.’

Invite the Salvation Army to share how they help Injured Workers when the WC system is an Epic Fail.  Who else helps injured workers survive the system?  Legal Aid?  Houses of Worship?

C’mon America!  Lives are being destroyed.  We do not have the right to remain silent. ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”….  Simple and Easy:  1. Demolition  2. Trials and Consequences 3. Rebuilt on legit foundations …. nice and legal and American-like.  Ditch the secret tribunal type practices immediately.

Demolition of Workers' Comp

If there’s no solution, demand complete and immediate DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION and necessary trials.  Remember, there are now 11 Congressional representatives on record as being concerned and alarmed about WorkComp in America…. and one is even expressly concerned about Injured Nuclear Workers!  Pssssst, #DodgeTheRads!  It’s dangerous out there, America!  (That’s a matter for more Congressional Investigations, wouldn’t you agree?)

Draw the line at involving IW’s in the post-daily-event drink-a-thons. Opiates and alcohol are not a good combo, and most IW’s are seriously drugged as part of ‘treatment’ to keep noise levels down?

[Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup of The Soul fame says 2016 will be all about ‘SOBER IS SEXY’ and has apparently written a book to show you how to be it in 30 days! ”

In 2016, Sober will be the New Successful

Jack (Canfield, not Daniels!) says: “What’s more, those generalized “aches and pains” start lessening, as does that sense of feeling lousy. “Brain fog” significantly decreases, helping you make better, more forward-thinking decisions. “- See more at: http://jackcanfield.com/in-2016-sober-will-be-the-new-successful/

ONE DAY AT A TIME, PEEPS…. God, grants us the Serenity to Accept the Things We Cannot Change, The Courage to Change Those Things We Can, and the WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.  Remember remember: “God gave you a brain to use.”   THINK THINK THINK ]

All others, check out www.aa.org  or look for “Friends of Bill W” sessions at your conferences…..  surely there are some sober people attending! Find them!

Invite panels of Injured Workers to speak on the true atrocities of this highly profitable industry, which destroys the lives of all but the least injured workers.  Remember remember… today’s able bodied worker is at risk of becoming tomorrow’s injured worker….and another casualty of the system.

It’s time to RESTORE CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW.

keep posting

What we need are greater numbers of InjuredWorker bloggers, so you, too, can know the truth.  Let’s aim to see “Injured Workers Associations”  in EVERY STATE IN THE UNION…. FOR STARTERS…   We’ll rate the providers as we help one another survive a system that aims to do only harm to injured workers.

As Cicero said long ago… “A NATION CANNOT SURVIVE TREASON FROM WITHIN….”

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW

Industry propaganda statistics were just released by the Berkeley Research Group.  How much did they get paid for this report?

Their “findings”  “prepared for the Division of Worker’s Compensation” of October 16, 2015, as discussed in the blog, LEARNING THE LESSONS  by David DePaolo indicate:
  1. 85% of workers injured in 2013 reported being “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with access to treating physicians and the treatment they received.

I’ve been screaming about matters since Summer ’13.   I was injured 1/9/12….still on the rest and wait and wait and wait and wait program.  :/
LinkedIn has primarily”industry” WorkComp groups, but some of us hope to change that.
 
ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS
 
There are resources in the “About” section.
 
The list of posts will give an overview of all the topics…WorkComp is brutal, and anybody in the system better be prepared for the fight for their life.
 
There is a group called National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers  http://naidw.org It’s volunteers and the biggest support is the community forums. Their slogan is “No Injured Worker Left Behind.”
 
There are also support groups on Facebook…. search “injured workers” and “work comp” and “workers compensation”
 
 
LinkedIn might be a great place for you to start a group…. ‘thinking about ______?’….   (I know a great deal about social media….if you’re not on LinkedIn yet, let me know and I’ll tell you why and how to change that!)

#CommitteesOfBloggers of Injured Workers are needed…..imho.  
There are too few; Too many injured workers are in FIGHT OR FLIGHT sheer survival mode, or slip in to deep depressions fighting these…..”Enemies of Humanity”…
SMALL ACTIONS BIG CHANGE
 
Here’s the video on DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATH….  as mentioned, I have zero tolerance for their ilk.  
 
Along similar lines, “Can you say why America is the greatest country in the world?”  

The most honest three and a half minutes of television, EVER… 

 mon political language
Please pass this on to your friend with an invitation to contact me directly (and file it, and share it anytime you are so moved; #WorkComp touches everybody, eventually). Injured Workers share with one another; it’s how we survive these atrocities.
 
Many thanks!  Keep me on your mailing list… and we’ll talk again soon….
 
Kind regards,
