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 else 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

If I could wave a magic wand and change anything about #WorkComp I would FIRST have to turn all of the attorneys into butterflies….in order to .in order to protect Injured Workers from them and their ilk

 

MyWorkCompCoach.com

If I could wave a magic wand and change anything else about #WorkComp, I would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate RICO level abuses of Injured Worker’s in every state at every level… Starting from the top down. I would set up a human rights commission for immediate intervention to save the lives of the current hostages of Worker’s Compensation. I would send in the National Guard to every state to facilitate release of the hostages and get them to legitimate medical care and safety from the harm perpetrated by the profiteers of Worker’s Compensation….

 

MyWorkCompCoach.com

If I could wave a magic wand and change anything else about #WorkComp, I would empower every injured worker to blog and document all the atrocities of their experiences in Worker’s Compensation and empower them further to do so without fear or caution, naming names, dates and crimes committed against them in the name of workers comp.

If I could wave a magic wand and change anything else about #WorkComp, I would inspire the good people at ProPublica and NPR to immediately publish the rest of the story submitted to them by Injured Workers across America, working in cooperation with their investigative journalist organizations, recognizing that we are the media now, and that lives are at stake. Time is of the essence.

MyWorkCompCoach.com

 

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp, I would put a two-year limit on every case. If sufficient medical care is not provided in that period of time to facilitate return to work, settlement including lifetime medical outside of Work Comp would be mandatory along with lifetime lost wages. Currently there is no incentive to provide medical care, comply with the law, provide disability benefits… Yet it is $1 billion industry destroying American lives daily. Time for change.

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp, I would demolish Worker’s Compensation immediately, invoking magic that it returns to the nothingness from which it came, causing no further harm and suffering.

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp, all evidence of malfeasance will be immediately investigated and trials for treason initiated.

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp, I would establish a legitimate protocol for medical benefits and treatment without delay, with intentions to facilitate healing and return to work, with and without accommodations, and rehabilitation when prior work is no longer possible due to injuries. A compassionate and human kindness program which screens out psychopaths would be immediately implemented. Catastrophically injured workers would be treated with compassion dignity and their remaining days would be filled with comfort and opportunities to serve humanity in whatever capacity they are able. There would be no need to protect egregiously injured workers from the sonderkommando of yesterday. Human kindness prevails.

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp, I would ensure that the unsuspecting public was fully apprised of the atrocities taking place for the profits of the few, and those people of goodwill would join Injured Worker’s

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp, I would touch the hearts and souls of every human with the will to good, the ability to blog, vlog, post share email pin tweet etc in full recognition of the grave responsibility of knowing that WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW!

If I could wave a magic wand to change anything else about #WorkComp I would empower every injured worker to blog, while they are able to shelter in place, and encourage other members of the unsuspecting public to take all necessary precautions and to #DodgeTheRads

#RTW. #ReturnToWork Conceptually it is a nice idea but when medical care is denied to ensure that medical improvements cannot be made, return to work is just a fantasy. When there is a program that provides immediate reasonable & necessary medical care, lives will be saved and corporate dollars will be saved For example, some people with #brain injuries return to work in 3 to 6 months after things like speech therapy with cognitive remediation, chiropractic and acupuncture, psychological help to deal with impairments…If the injuries are NOT work related. A standard pattern of practice for a brain injury in the #WorkComp world starts with termination of benefits & routine bullying & intimidation & denial of medical care upon diagnosis of brain injury. The stories are told by nurses, correctional officers, lawyers, etc. A comparison of outcomes for the same type of injuries inside and outside of #WorkComp tells all. The crisis of hyper corruption where leased owned doctors are paid thousands of dollars to write dirty reports with intention to deny medical care seems to be a core issue. “If I had a magic wand & could change anything about Worker’s Compensation, the first thing I would do is turn dirty doctors into butterflies to protect IWs”

MyWorkCompCoach.com

“If I could wave a magic wand and change something about #WorkersCompensation, I would make sure that everyone of their panel conventions has at least two injured workers to represent the truth at their regular five diamond resort conferences. All conferences would be drug-free and alcohol free by all panelists and participants. (12 step meetings nearby or on site) Every vendor, as part of exhibit fees, would be required to sponsor for the entire event and Injured Workers capable of interacting with the WorkComp community in order to build bridges to truth transformation and life saving skills. All participants would be able to enjoy the beauty of the butterflies… (attorneys transformed into butterflies with the first wave of the magic wand.) and be reminded of freedom, life, liberty and justice for all.

“If I could wave a magic wand and change anything about the increasing suicide rates in America I would first…. Put word out on the Streets to missing Veterans so they can be redeployed to find Missing Injured Workers also committing suicides daily….. They can compare pharmaceutical abuses, failed surgeries, denied medical care, head games, corrupt doctors, the political malfeasance…. In other Words, highly trained Veterans can team up as Battle-Buddies on the #WorkComp battlefields and teach civilians how to conduct themselves in a hostage situation. Nobody else will help Injured Americans… Will America’s veterans again come to the aid of our country?”

What do so many #WorkComp doctors write dirty incoherent inaccurate fraudulent reports?

“If I could wave a magic wand and change anything about Worker’s Compensation, I would ask the president to appoint a special prosecutor in every state to investigate the operations and money laundering activities of Worker’s Compensation to immediately stop the harm to Injured Workers across America” While this WCAB example maybe “legal” maybe it isn’t?

What is the status of the “accident” investigation? David DePaolo’s last article talked about corruption and invited class-action….and three days later an experienced motorcycle rider veered off the road yo death ? There was a blip in the news that about a “medical event” that sounded like a cesium-exposure heart attack. Are the investigations ongoing? Are there investigations into injured worker defense-incited suicides to protect profits before lives? What can Injured Workers do when they can’t find competent ethical legal representation and they are denied other support services because they are not represented in California, and probably elsewhere? If not, “if I could wave a magic wand, I would ask the president to appoint a special investigator into work comp related deaths…..” Cc Michael Grabell Howard Berkes ACLU of Southern California ACLU of Northern California ACLU

“If I could wave a magic wand and change anything about Worker’s Compensation, I would ask the president to appoint A special prosecutor to investigate deaths related to #WorkComp with and without plausible deniability….outside of the usual internal affairs type industry investigations…..” David’s friends may have looked the other way, but injured Workers he befriended did not…

Indictments could help with learning lessons? “If if I could wave a magic wand and change anything about #WorkersCompensation, another thing I would do is ensure that all dirty doctors are immediately indicted and banned from medical practice forever more… profits before lives is in direct conflict to their Hypocrisy and oaths…”

“How long? NOT LONG!…..”

#WorkComp “if I could wave a magic wand, every injured worker around the globe would be trained in matters of safety and effective whistleblowing and defense against the psychopaths that relentlessly and callously put profits before lives… and the unsuspecting public would be fully informed of the egregious harm committed by an entire industry, costing Injured Workers their lives and taxpayers their money. #WorkersCompensation is NOT an employee benefit.” What other organization used to maim and kill parents and train up the children in their own fascism?

More comments and examples soon. Thank you. “If I could wave a magic wand and change anything about Worker’s Compensation, another thing I would change is to ask the president-elect to appoint a special prosecutor into the matters of impoverishment of injured workers that are compounded by denials of medical care, refusal to pay disability payments, cost shifting to taxpayers, failed surgeries, and intimidation, bullying and thinly veiled threats by defense practitioners with intent to incite suicides in the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES BUSINESS MODEL Pleasantly called “Worker’s Compensation”

Give Kids a Chance? Don’t force the children of Injured Worker’s to witness the maiming and torturing of their parents because insurance profiteers want to hoard profits, mock the law, deny medical care and live above the law and violate human rights and civil rights without fear or caution! Be Human! Imagine if this same group of supporters supported medical care & benefits to Injured Workers? “IF I could wave a magic wand to change anything about Worker’s Compensation, these parties & supporters would support medical care benefits and justice and law enforcement for Injured Workers across the United States of America, including but not limited to #KidsChanceInc supporters such as: a unique coalition of groups within the workers’ compensation system, including labor, plaintiff and defense attorneys, judiciary, insurance industry, medical providers, vendors and other supportive businesses, which have come together to meet collective goals…” Research it!

MyWorkCompCoach.com

If #WorkersCompensation practices cause irreparable harm to the children of Injured Workers across America, would you care? Would you do anything to change it? If influencers in related fields that profit by corruption that causes irreparable harm to children of Injured Worker’s were aware that the practices forced children to witness the maiming, torture & human rights abuses of a parent because of a work injury- would they be complicit in such crimes of abuse if they did nothing to help protect the children & worker-parent? If those influencers refuse to lift a finger to stop torture & abuse of the injured worker but promised to “educate” their children, would you give them money? Give Kids A Chance—don’t make them watch a torturous death of an injured worker parent and promise them an education if they keep their mouth shut. Is history repeating itself? #WorkComp is not an employee benefit “if I could wave a magic wand, I would help children of injured Workers expose crimes they witness with courage to blow the whistles”

MyWorkCompCoach.com

It is a pity & a shame that attorneys involved in #WorkersCompensation cases seem to have negligible negotiation skills yet refuse to participate in mediation: All to the harm & detriment of Injured Workers’s & their Kids, who are essentially unprotected in the American #WorkComp system. “If I could wave a magic wand, I would place a two-year limit on all work comp cases. If medical care has been insufficient to return an injured worker to work,The grand bargainers would be required to mediate & settle up…” Cases that drag on, torture for years & years & years without benefits without medical care without income without representation seem un-American don’t they? show less

 If I could wave a magic wand & change anything about #WorkersCompensation I would ensure immediate reasonable & appropriate medical care & benefits & incite mediation with intention to settle and abolish litigation and the litigators.

I would if I could but I can’t. Got #TBI. You can. Apply by the 5th of …

WorkComp Linda

Aug 20, 2016 – “#ProPublica is Hiring an Engagement Reporter” “Assignment: Give us a few thoughts on how you would have gone about re-imagining and executing a project …

  • Experience with social and website metrics, since you will be in charge of analyzing what’s working, what’s not, and what we should differently next time.  Yes, limited, but compensate with intuition.   Use of FB ads is a mystery unto it’s own, and simple google searches give a good, broad, simple overview of what’s working and what isn’t.

Does this sound like a new job to you? That’s because it is. Part of what we’re looking for is somebody who is excited about helping us build it.   YES, YES, I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOUR TEAM BUILD IT.  I CAN PROVIDE INSIGHTS THAT MAY BE SOMEWHAT UNUSUAL AND VERY EFFECTIVE.

Furthermore:

INSULT TO INJURY – THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION must go many layers deeper.   There must be hundreds if not thousands of ‘stories’ that were submitted but not used.  Like Convicts in Penitentiaries, a return to those same writers, may find the story exactly the same, or even worse.

Many people ‘in the streets’ shared they submitted their stories, more than once, without response.  While Injured Workers are thrilled at the Awards and all the Hard Work that went into those reports, a thank you note to those who submitted stories would have gone a long way to establish trust and credibility in those still fighting for their lives in the system.

Please see my current blog about a Facebook Virtual Tour of the pain and suffering discussed behind those walls…. Injured Worker groups, pages, events and desperation.

“….give us a few thoughts on how you would have gone about re-imagining and executing a project we did last year about the demolition of worker’s comp protections around the country. How could we connect to the people actually impacted by the story, and how could they have contributed to the project? *..”

This entire application has several ideas that can be further developed to involve contributors in the project du jour.  Let’s hope that 2017 will see INSULT TO INJURY-  ENCORE, that may also include serious investigations into allegations of unclean hands between WorkComp and Social Security and State Disability agencies, in possible acts of RICO type malfeasance and worse.

Some Injured Workers have signed petitions, one circulating has nearly 6,000 signatures, all ignored by the “Top 22 Industry Bloggers” who twist and distort public opinion with a heavy dose of “extend and pretend.”  Those avenues need further investigations, particularly since the death of David Paolo, the leading spoke person for the industry.  They can be encouraged to be a part of solutions, or they continue to put profits before lives.

This ProPublica Engagement Reporter project  absolutely sounds like a Project I could contribute mightily to.  I have been doing very similar work for the past nearly 5 years, as part of self-rehabilitation, survival, and serving the common good.

Each time I have experienced CENSORSHIP I have chosen to learn new social media skills.  A quick google search of a few my memes is illustrative of what can be done, even as a member of ‘marginalized communities’ in rural America.

“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW”??  Google results are fascinating.   This was a gut level response to Corporate Censorship of the Global Nuclear Disaster, Fukushima triple nuclear meltdowns of March 11, 2011.

As we, concerned citizens,  watched the censors at work with scrubbing the internet (In 2012, Fukushima brought google results of more than 62,000,000.  Today, not so much.  It is  primarily industry propaganda that floats to the top of a google search, with bizarre tales of fake remedies to ‘clean up’ the meltdowns, and hand wringing about expensive ice walls that failed, to Geiger countered monkeys in Japan and elsewhere, including the USA, chanting ‘There is No Immediate Danger” while the USA radiation levels escalate, deaths increase, and corporate media makes stuff up to explain away the ‘mysterious, baffling, befuddling, perplexing’ nonsense.

I can be most helpful to a ProPublica team with the next phase of INSULT TO INJURY: THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION.   The 2015 reports caused quite a stir in the industry, and in early 2016, they began to rumble about retaliation, in the cloak of a National Discussion [to mitigate profit losses from the ProPublica/NPR telling of the OPEN SECRETS, that everybody knows.]

In May, I was personally attacked for several weeks by Industry spokes people, with vicious diatribes, that graciously included links to several of my blogs.  My professional friends suggested that they had to kick somebody after the ProPublica/NPR reports, and what an easy mark would be one of the very very few Injured Workers who blogs, in rural America, with a brain injury.

Despicable?  Yes, absolutely.  Personal, not likely.  The money trail never lies, does it.  Hurtful? You betcha!

One of the parties spoke very highly of me in 2014, and had been very kind and gracious to me as he and his team studied my case, discussed it at panels, and even wrote several articles based on the unique manner in which I fought back, and the complications of the case.  (Michael Grabell was actually encouraged by a few people to consider my story for INSULT TO INJURY, but alas, it must have been “too hot” or “too messy.”)

I was also encouraged to have a discussion with an Al Jazeera producer doing a story on Workers Compensation, but

The  only thing I know of that changed is that without benefit of competent legal counsel, the parties to my very public case reached resolution, subject to a confidentiality agreement.  Or maybe he was just ‘following orders.’

The defense counsel even sent, at the end, what seemed to be a warm and sincere best wishes communication.  My friends laughed, but I chose to believe it was real.

As to the Viet Nam era Veterans and Agent Orange, as I am sure the ProPublica Reporters know, are for the most part, SERIOUS PATRIOTS, tossed aside by our government officials, for more profits before lives.  No Veteran would leave a buddy on the battle field and I suspect that as you open those investigations, you will find another Pandora’s Box.

[Left out about Fukushima US Sailors dying of radiation poisoning from the USS Ronald Reagan of March 2011; a huge national alarm!]

PLEASE BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT IF YOU TAKE AND TELL THEIR STORIES,  YOU DON’T KICK THEM TO THE CURB AFTER AWARDS ARE WON.   PLEASE BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT YOU ADDRESS THE CURRENT WAR CASUALTIES, AND THE DEPELETED URANIUM THAT IS KILLILNG THEM, ALONG WITH THE HEAD INJURIES.

During the Viet Nam War, I kept friends and loved one in cookies and letters from home.  None returned whole, and some did not return at all.   Many veterans are further abused in the Workers Compensation and Social Security Systems.   America treats her military personnel like ‘throw aways’….  Expose that, and you’ll get awards from the people!   See these articles, and perhaps make it required reading and listening for any people on the new project:

 

GI’s Brains Fried by Military Dispensed Nose Candy | Veterans Today

 

News Alert — Jeff Rense’s show airs here! Go to Bob Nichols’ article.  “Nichols on the Jeff Rense Show – GI’s Brains 

 

While relocation to New York City is impractical for me, as is a 40-hour work week, I would love to explore the possibilities of a consulting position, in a virtual capacity.   A quick google search shows that I am a serious Warrior.  LinkedIn and the ability to reach influencers was a significant part of my Survival Strategy and success in the Workers Compensation issues, and may be called into play again as the Social Security improprieties Head of the Hydra is on the horizon.

While in the Workers’ Compensation system, no doctor would would release me to return to work, and I told my current doctor that I would be applying for this position.  His eyes got very big and he suggested pursuing it in a virtual capacity, and perhaps as a consultant to be a part of the team.  I told the doctor that the job description sounds like it was addressed right to me, so it would be a mistake to not make contact.

Social Security apparently allows me a 9 month trial-return-to-work without interruption to my benefits and I would be open to a 9 month trial-return-to-work consulting position around the WorkComp Encore project, with a willingness to provide transferrable strategies to the community doing the Veteran project.  The pending outcome of some very challenging misrepresentations and mistakes by the SSA could be another project unto it’s own for ProPublica and NPR.

The 10 Congressional Representatives who signed the October 2015 letter to the Department of Labor have also been apprised of the “Magic Math” of SSA, and the extreme hardships and litigation it has subjected me to.  This is a pattern and practice that Injured Workers warn one another to expect.  It costs injured workers AND TAXPAYERS.  If there are an estimated 45 million people on Social Security Disability, and 8.9 million are injured workers, what happens to those in that gap??

Other avenues for the WorkComp encore include interviewing doctors and lawyers who have left the industry because of the hyper corruption, and those who stay and try to honor their oath to DO NO HARM.

The movement by Dr. Pamel Wible, IdealMedicalCare.org, is worth a serious look.  She addresses why doctors kill themselves, and her TedMed talk could be required viewing for the WorkComp and Veteran project teams.  While doctors on the dole don’t tend to kill themselves, the message applies also to WorkComp.

 

I like to make every effort count, since every effort takes so much from me.  I will include this entire application in a blog at MyWorkCompCoach.com in hopes of inciting further discussions, and perhaps support for The Demolition of Workers Compensation – ENCORE and the  Poisoned Veterans investigations for the Viet Nam era Veterans, and the current War veterans, and their many health challenges.

Thank you for the opportunity to update my resume in order to apply for the position, and to provide some insights ‘from the streets.’

The Work ProPublica is doing is important….  WorkComp was the tip of the iceberg….let’s go deeper there…. Root out the causes and thereby FREE THE HOSTAGES.

Veterans have told me that Injured Workers caught in the system would be well advised to conduct themselves as military personnel are trained to when they are taken hostage by enemy forces.

Sincerely,

ProPublica is Hiring an Engagement Reporter

This is not just about social media. We assume you know how to do a Twitter collection and why social video is important. What we’re looking for is somebody who will find and reach the people actually impacted by a story, get them to inform our work and be a central player in the storytelling on all platforms to maximize the resonance of the project.

The work can be as a low-fi as flier, or as buzzy as a Facebook video, whatever is best for the story and project.

So what exactly are we talking about? Take a look at a project we’ve been doing about Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange. Unlike traditional investigations, we didn’t start with a story. We announced that we were doing an investigation with a callout to the community. We asked vets to tell us their stories, and we’ve now heard from more than 5,800 of them. This community has fueled our reporting, and it’s already getting results.

We also plan to do more projects where we work openly with and help foster communities of journalists. An example of that: our Red Cross Reporting Network.

Is all of that the kind of work you want to do? Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • A track record of organizing communities and audiences, especially in a journalistic context.
  • Journalism experience itself, especially involving stories that shed light on injustices or covering marginalized communities.
  • Ability to listen for signals from the community and smartly apply them to the project.
  • Experience using the various tools of the social web, such as surveys or forms for sourcing, texting or messaging platforms.
  • Experience with social and website metrics, since you will be in charge of analyzing what’s working, what’s not, and what we should differently next time.

Does this sound like a new job to you? That’s because it is. Part of what we’re looking for is somebody who is excited about helping us build it.

To apply, fill out the form below.

Our deadline for applications is Sept. 5. The job is full-time, with competitive salary and benefits. It will be based in New York.

Do you have questions? Email Eric.umansky@propublica.org or Terry.parris@propublica.org.

No phone calls, please.

ProPublica is committed to diversity and especially encourages members of underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities.

“Assignment: Give us a few thoughts on how you would have gone about re-imagining and executing a project we did last year about the demolition of worker’s comp protections around the country. Again, how could we have connected to the people actually impacted by the story, and how could they have contributed to the project?”

‘All of This Because Somebody Got Hurt at Work’ – ProPublica

Follow this blog to be sure you don’t miss it! (It was derailed after onslaught of May diatribes from industry mouth-pieces, attacking individuals and groups of Injured Workers (in apparent retaliation to the ProPublica 2015 report…Injured & Disabled Workers are easier targets for abuse and disparagement than fisticuffs with a behemoth investigative reporting empire like #ProPublica and #NPR, huh?

Bullying at it’s very lowest by those who profit most by the endless pain and suffering of injured and disabled people

What’s YOUR #WorkComp Story? Use these questions as a guideline in your own blog, or feel free to submit and resubmit your story, and know it will be rendered ANONYMOUS  https://myworkcompcoach.com/whats-your-workcomp-story/ 
Fresh, more inclusive, questions coming up soon!

We have not had a chance to pretty up these questions but we’re working on it, along with some other ‘rebranding’ efforts that were also stalled while fending off national personal disparaging attacks (that also graciously included several links to my blogs, thanks to David DePaolo, RiP)

The #Sedgwick Institute kicked me out of their little LinkedIn group for presenting the linked questions back in May and for asking for their professional input. Pffffft. 

A couple of Injured Workers with reading challenges submitted their stories then had a fit because their names were not to be used, a decision by consensus of all parties who have already submitted their stories. ANONYMITY PREVAILS 

ANONYMOUS PRECEDES UNANIMOUS.

Same group of injured workers threatened “legal action” for my attempts to get stories safely out & into the #Workers Compensation National Discussion arena. I’m not easily threatened, as anybody watching these blogs will attest, or anybody who knows me. Right is right and wrong is wrong. 

Workers Compensation is a dangerous institution, harming not only injured and defenseless workers, but taxpayers, too. See Congressional letter of October 2015, signed by 10 representatives. 

So, if you have a story, let’s get’s the ball rolling again. We’ll also be reaching out to “The Defense” side….and their team players and get their opinions on how to save lives of Injured Workers without costing the industry ALL THEIR PROFITS. 

Obviously, the counsel for Injured Workers is baffled and perplexed and befuddled about how to actually protect their clients, and the Top 22+ Industry Bloggers aren’t much help in that department, either. 

Most Injured Workers are AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT. Others are so befuddled by Learned Helplessness, they honestly seem to think IF ONLY they got a new doctor, a new lawyer, a new prescription, then everything would be dandy…even if they have been believing it for 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 years of torture, abuse, and denials of medical care, YES, IN AMERICA!

Injured Workers’ Stories Are The Same – minor differences are names, body parts and case numbers – Ask a Doctor or Lawyer for confirmation

Ask Your Injured Friends and Neighbors, too!

“The reason you draw the reactions from these folks is not because you are being vilified, or because they have a disdain for the injured worker with a voice or any other malicious reason.”

“It is very simple – you offer nothing positive relative to change.”

“Anyone can complain. Few do anything to effectuate change.”

“Drawing attention to the negative, which you have done for the past several years, does nothing to further the conversation, offers no solutions, provides no road map.”

REALLY????

…It simply is not enough to complain. Everyone has a complaint. A complaint without a solution is bulls**t. You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention.

Everyone knows that bad sh*t happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.

So what are YOU going to do about it? …. Anonymous Industry Mouthpiece

The contempt and disdain that masks the dangers to Injured Workers by the industry profiteers is undeniable and sounds pretty darn dangerous, doesn’t it?

They ‘might be right.’

I wonder what if the 30,000 + viewers of AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com have any opinions on the foregoing statements?  If so, please tell me more at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

Watch for future issues of MyWorkCompCoach.com for strategies on how to deal with such interactions.  Remember remember Ghandi…

‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then…YOUR BLOG POSTS GO VIRAL!’  – or something like that, huh?   xooxoxo

I want to find a way to propose solutions to help Injured Workers escape the WC System with their lives.  The laws are unenforced and meaningless.

I have a collection of Injured Worker stories, most of whom prefer to be Anonymous.  Watch for them.  They include, but are not limited to, in progress tragedies apparently caused by Sedgwick and others.  Most have poor-to-no legal representation, advocacy, medical care or benefits.  Yes, in America! An AMERICAN DIRTY OPEN SECRET.

Too many lawyers just make stuff up to protect profits by any means necessary. The US Constitution is mocked by the WorkCompsters, and far worse, they get away with it.  You don’t look.  You don’t care. Till you’re stuck in the box car, heading for the death camps of WorkComp.  Enough is enough.

It will require teams of mediators and structured settlement people. Would you find that of any interest? Start with a plan to release all POW’s who have been in the WorkComp System 4 or more years…..within 12 months, with the help and supervision of the National Guard.

It requires “arming ” Injured Workers with the ability to blog and share their stories, heinous as most of them are.

I am also in the process creating a course for Injured Workers to empower them with Work Comp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills!  Watch for it!

I am wondering about the possibilities of a collaborative effort and ezine and possible Tele summit to unite voice of any good people in Workers Compensation with victims of WorkComp to lead legitimate national discussions “Of the People, By the People and For the People.”

I am one voice speaking on behalf of Injured Workers. There are a few of us.

Canadians and Australians seem more vocal about the same class atrocities. Perhaps they don’t fear their governments like so many American’s do?  Has our Constitution become so meaningless that an entire industry can profit by destroying a segment of the Working Class?   ‘When they come for you, there will be no one left to speak for you…’

Most injured workers are too terrified of the WorkCompsters and their legislated fraud and surveillance and threats, compounding denied medical care and benefits.  Doesn’t that truth make you shake your head and want to shout, “NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!”

The Injured Worker stories are the same — minor differences are names, body parts, and case numbers.  The outcomes are much the same too…with degrees of further maligned health,  income and job losses, botched surgeries, risk/cost shifts to taxpayers via Social Security and prison systems, ETC.

Some experts insist that the best injured workers can hope for in America is social security disability and an early death.   Really, some industry investigative reporting from the dark side, huh?

Others suggest that the best American’s can hope for is a program to provide ‘food for the poor injured workers’ rather than LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR MEDICAL CARE AND BENEFITS, indictments from criminal conduct of the WorkCompsters, and the protection by the National Guard for extreme CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN EVERY STATE IN THE UNION.

NAZI HUNTER STES  5 4 2016

Congress didn’t offer assistance with food banks for poor tortured and abused Injured Workers.   Here’s the October 2015 letter where the ten signers clearly offer assistance, that could indeed come in the deployment of the National Guard, since State agencies also fail injured workers, nationally.

“….and whether added authorities are needed to better ensure that the interests of injured workers and taxpayers are protected.”

We say, keep your bags of surplus food out of the legal functioning of WorkComp…ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE IN PLACE TO PROTECT INJURED WORKERS, AND INDICT THE OFFENDERS THAT READILY COMMIT FRAUD WITH INTENT TO DENY MEDICAL CARE, AND WORSE.

If the laws are unenforceable, then there is no choice but to immediately demolish the workers compensation systems and commence trials for the crimes being committed against every Injured Worker in America, and taxpayers, and employers and legitimate service providers.  You could be their next victim.

I am a work comp survivor, who was extremely unsuccessful in finding competent legal counsel.  Nevertheless, in pro per, ‘the parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.”  #BloggersSurviveWorkComp

Doctor and Lawyer pals advised to “get out of the workers comp system by any means necessary; it will kill you.”   Some later said that in their entire careers, they never saw anybody fight so hard to survive WorkComp.

One such ‘fan’ suggested that I create a ‘coaching program.’  From that simple encouragement, I began working on a new blog, MyWorkCompCoach.com and an eCourse, Surviving Work Comp and Virtual Combat Skills on Teachable.

Personal ‘rebranding’  post-WorkComp is difficult when hearing fresh horror stories, while being continuously assaulted by industry trolls and their ilk.  It can, however, be accomplished, with a little help from our friends.

I have been a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards 2014-2015 and I used my resources to also share in the social media communities about the recent 2016 best blogs contest.

A search of the website, AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com results in pages of and pages of posts about the Comp Laude event.  Ditto for the ‘Best Blogs’ event.  Call it ‘drivel’ if they will.  Sticks and Stones…..

We also shared news of the Sedgwick Institute Linked in group, for what it’s worth, after reading weeks before of the mega-funded SEDGWICK INSTITUTE, allegedly established to investigate the ‘issues’ of WorkComp.  Search my blogs for further info.  Google it.

I blog extensively, to the best of my abilities, as I recover from Worker’s Compensation and brain injury.  My anti-nuclear efforts have suffered tremendously due to WorkComp battles, but it has helped to see the parallels between the ‘PROFITS BEFORE LIVES’ nuclear and insurance industries, and the ‘swaths’ of 21st Century Sonderkommando.

I live near Joshua Tree National Park in California, USA. I am much nicer than I may appear in my blogs, and while my ability to speak is still impaired and challenging, I can speak but written communications are much easier for me, post-injury. If you have a story to share, send it to me.  We Are The Media Now.

Please let me know if you think there might be mutual benefit in a discussion. I have several projects on the table and it seems that the industry has amped up their propaganda blitz in a feeble effort to neutralize or mitigate the truths exposed in the 2015 Insult to Injury / Demolition of Worker’s Compensation series.

“Injured Workers without a blog are Unarmed and Unprotected In The WarOnWorkers!  #WoW”

Here are the industry’s picks of the Best Blogs of 2016.  Note the absence of Injured Worker Representation.

They all seem tasked with a propaganda launch to attempt to mitigate the truths exposed in 2015 by ProPublica and NPR efforts that just exposed the tip of the iceberg.  They are apparently having a ‘secret’ national discussion in May…. we’ll see what comes of that, won’t we.  So far, not so good in the open-ness and transparency arenas.  Attacks on Injured Workers seem to be escalating, and tales of WC Nurses posing as employees at doctors offices have been reported to be threatening, intimidating and terrorizing injured workers at doctor’s appointments.  SMH…. thinking, ‘NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!’

InjuredWorkersUniting!  SilentNoMore!

Share the link.  We’ll create another directory with Injured Worker reviews of the accuracy of their content, in due course.

Follow them all, and search their sites to see which ones actually bother to report on WorkComp Fraud legitimately…. the carriers seem to have the most indictments, and employees weigh in at less than 1%.  Follow that money trail.

JOIN IN THE DISCUSSIONS ON LINKEDIN.…  and tell your friends and neighbors; your governments already know.

You might also peruse these blogs for some potentially inspiring thoughts for actions….  “It takes a village.”
