I do agree with you, don't get me wrong, I'm not actually complaining, there are far worse places on earth I could live with my disabilities, places I could not exist so, I'm am genuinely grateful! it's just hard to accept and be happy when you will never go on a vacation, you will never own anything new and when all your neighbours drive new SUV's and go to Florida and Mexico every year or watching everyone else ride a lawn tractor when here I am disabled pushing a mower! it's hard to be in my position in todays society in north America. The past 10 years have been quite difficult for people with disabilities in Canada and the USA, as the cost of living keeps going up our income remains the same and has actually been slashed by about 5% last year! This winter has been particular hard, Farmers last year had a "bumper crop" and bought up all the propane, this in turn more than doubled the price of heating fuel, we went from paying just under $200 a month to heat our home to about $500 per month, needles to say we went cold this winter! I have been looking for work for over 8 years but it would seem that employers are not yet hiring peoples with disabilities. It's hard to be part of a society who gives billions to other countries and or claims to be a "have got" nation when they cant even take care of their own properly! All I want, all I ever wanted is an opportunity! an opportunity to take care of myself and my family! but the government cancelled and removed any or all incentives for employers to hire peoples with disabilities, simply put, we can no longer afford to be part of this society! when "crack heads" claim disability and get the same support we do, it's hard to accept! so, enough of my ranting lol! I do have one question, why is it that tobacco is still legal in North America but not wearing a seatbelt in a car is against the law?
