Subject: Disclosure

<HTML>Hi!
I am doing a research paper on Disclosure. More specifically I am comparing and contrasting the advantages and disadvantages of disclosing in post secondary education vs employment situation. If anyone could help by providing a personal view it would be greatly appreciated. There seems to be a little information on disclosing in the workplace but very little on post secondary disclosure.

Thank you</HTML>

<HTML>southpaw,

you may know that the conventional wisdom is not to disclose when it comes to employment. Not disclosing is the VR party line. That is not surprising in that VR is a disgraceful fraud and it is natural for them to encourage others to be deceptive. As far as I am concerned lying is lying. We certianly want a company to disclose it's short comings to us especially if it may effect us adversely. I was encouraged to decieve an employer regarding my disability by VESID and another puke organization called RCIL. The latter waves the banner of the worthless ADA and suggests litigation if an employer tries to fire you if you can't do your job due to your disability. Anyone who would advocate that a disabled person lie to or otherwise decieve a prospective employer needs to spen the rest of their meaningless life in a cancer ward with no morphine.

Honesty is still the best policy. Lies and deception is not appreciated by employers. Not disclosing is the same as a lie unless your a lawyer or Satan. Employers are ultimately the friend of the disabled. The chief responsibility of an employer is to stay in business and create jobs. It is the responsibility of the butt plugs that pretend to help the disabled to make it attractive and profitable for employers to hire the disabled. Unfortunately, those who make a living pretending to help the disabled are more often than not stupid, inept and dishonest.</HTML>
