John obviously doesn't socialise with too many crips, we have a 'special' sense of humour, viz Joy's comment :-D

After TW's hubby had his leg amputated he and I enjoyed many sessions of phone sex, well his heavy breathing and deep voice qualifies.

Get a bunch of us together and we take the mick out of each other and laugh like lunatics,, it's the ONLY club to be in :-D

I don't consider my enhanced state pension which I will receive next year (after having the date moved) as charity. I paid enough NI and SERPS to qualify.

BTW DLA is the benefit which covers extra expenses disabled people are faced with.This is paid whether you are working or not. ESA is an income replacement benefit the equivalent of JSA if you are able bodied it has nothing to do with needs at all.

Joy and 5EXY I really do not see why I need to enter a competition to determine whetehr you are more aware and more understanding than me about the plight of people who are chronically sick or terminally ill.

Your comments continue to be beneath contempt, in my view. You are trying hard to be hurtful to make yourselves appear better than me. It won't work. I have skin and blood like you. I have a compassionate and caring nature. Do you?

maybe people dont quite understand how bad things are with the DWP and ATOS
until it happens to somebody you know is genuinely ill

i know i did not myself :-(

The name is 5EXY not what you are saying my name is.

Yes it's the criteria you attach to it & your total lack of understanding of what real people are going through that beggers belief. You in in my view fail to see the big picture. IMHO

Sexy Do you agree that I have said I want us to help anybody who genuinely deserves medical and financial help.

If you feel the answer to that is "no" - then it will not be a fair or civilised discussion IMHO

Joy Have absolutely no idea. I am not quite as knowledgable on medical matters as even yourself

So if another person doesnt agree with your views you don't wish to have a civillised discussion about it then?

JustJohn

JustJohn Report 28 Sep 2012 22:19

Am happy to have a civilised discussion.

But "maybe you could say they could do them sex phone lines
and if heavy breathing is needed we could stand on the oxygen pipes" (Joy) and "Would your views be what they are today? Would you feel the DWP or ATOS are bullying/cheating on you & letting you down? stopping your money, leaving you with no money to live on"

These are disgraceful comments and have absolutely nothing to do with my views. Absolutely nothing. It is them imagining people who are against people who deserve benefits and love from the rest of society. And imagining that I am one of those people against them and not for them. I am totally sympathetic - read what I have actually put, not what you THINK I put.

How many more times??????!!!!!!!!!

Why's that then John, or can't you think of an answer?

Hi John I bet your day went somthing like as follows..
You woke up & got out of bed
You went to the bathroom & got washed & dressed for work
You then went downstairs had made coffee, sat down & drank it, maybe made breakfast & had that too.
You then stood up put on your coat & left the house, Got in your car & drove to work.
You then did a full day’s work & everything that involved in it.
You then walked to your car & drove home again.
You parked your car up, walked in your house, took off your coat, made another tea or coffee, sat down & drank it.
You maybe turned on the TV & or computer watched the TV or communicated with others on the computer, did something else you wanted to do.

Now just think if you could not do any of the above on your own, Would your views be what they are today? Would you feel the DWP or ATOS are bullying/cheating on you & letting you down? stopping your money, leaving you with no money to live on. Leaving you to think what is the point of going on in this world anymore, because you have lost your home & everything you have ever had.
Is this getting through to you yet John. That is what some people end up like thanks to the DWP & ATOS.

Joy last time, one and only time, I was drunk in charge of a keyboard I was 'saved' by an Empress lol, and since then I've only had half a half-bottle at Christmas :-D I think if I did start it might become too much of a habit , like my coffee is lol.

Ladies, I don't drink either, but surely you realise that a lot of people who post must ;-)

I rarely drink either ( though sometimes I think it might be a comfort to have a large bottle of something before reading this board!).

just thought i would mention this john
i dont drink except for tea and lucozade

some people who are diagnosed with 5 years to live
still have no quality of life
also the stress of never knowing when their end will come
within thee 5years is awful
some have really bad breathing conditions or heart conditions
and need constant medication and oxygen machines

maybe you could say they could do them sex phone lines
and if heavy breathing is needed we could stand on the oxygen pipes :-(
or
maybe they could be astronauts
well they have their own oxygen supplies and would only need the suits
