99ers Seeking HR 589 Unemployment Extension, Maybe We Can Get a Job Doing a Commercial

It has been 165 days since the 112th Congress convened.  Coming up on the 2010 Midterms every candidate was saying how they were going to get us jobs.  Not one piece of legislation has been passed with that end as its goal.  Tens of thousands more 99ers join the ranks of the uncounted each week as the unemployment rate edges up, telling us that the unemployment rate is rising at a faster rate than even the masters of deceit can cover up.

And now to add insult to injury, they are starting to use us in their commercials again for the presidential primaries.  I guess there is one way you can make sure you have a good problem for an issue for the next campaign, just don’t solve any problems.

Meanwhile the filthy rich continue to make record profits, all the while complaining that they need further tax cuts and deregulation to make them feel secure in the future.  And the politicians are lapping it up, which should show the rest of us exactly where we stand.

Tens of millions of us do not know how we are going to make it through tomorrow, yet we are being asked to sacrifice more so the filthy rich can feel secure.  Tell me, if you had a lousy, measly, million dollars in the bank would you be sweating next Christmas a year from now, two years from now?

I heard Ron Paul say that we should get rid of the tax on corporate income being brought back into the United States.  I’m sorry, Dr. Paul but we are in vehement disagreement on this issue.  I say we take every god damn dollar of it to make up for the billions they were given in incentives to move our industry and our jobs overseas.  And if they don’t want to pay it, I say we seize everything they have in their bank accounts here and send them to live in the foreign countries where their money and our jobs are.

It is all right that I disagree with Ron Paul on this issue because when he helps me reinstate our Constitution, the first order I’m going to give him as my employee is to seize the money and jail the thieves.

I guess things are probably hard enough on him right now, just threatening to take away their printing press.  I noticed when viewing the video of the Republican Leadership Conference the fat ass neo-cons and their ugly wives, every one of which looked like their neck had thrown up, were extremely distressed at the out pouring of support for Dr. Paul.

The price these neo-cons pay for their treachery should fit their crime.  They should be stripped of their wealth and made to live in an inner city for ten years.  And when they have done their time we will return half of their wealth to them and see how they treat with their fellow human beings.  The other half of their wealth, we will take as a fine; because the fact is you do not make it to the ranks of the elite anymore without stealing.

At any rate I suppose we will continue to be ignored until we become that proverbial 10,000 pound elephant sitting on their laps.

I had a great idea of how we could end our poverty.  We can simply pass a law against poverty and make any violation a capital crime, punishable by death.  Oh yeah, and we could attach tax cuts and deregulation for the rich to the legislation.  You would see our Congress come together like long lost friends.  There would be no debate.  They would just sing the “Barney Song” and vote it in.

I guess maybe I shouldn’t be giving them any ideas.  But then again I think they have already taken up this policy in their actions, if not in law, and damn them for it.  It is a hell of a thing when you find yourself living for nothing but revenge.  This is the stuff that slaughter is made of.

Every neo-con and social communist had better go home and pray tonight that Ron Paul is elected president.  I believe he is the only thing standing between them and a brutal retribution from the citizens they have terrorized.  At the least they had better know we are going to have our Republic back under our Constitution.   And they are going to treat us with respect or we are going to slap their snob noses off their faces.

God bless this Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

  1. Hi Henry,

    Have you seen the article “President Obama Re-authorizes Federal Unemployment Extension for 2012 Due To Continuously High Unemployment Numbers”

    Read more: http://www.benzinga.com/press-releases/11/06/p1159570/president-obama-re-authorizes-federal-unemployment-extension-for-2012-#ixzz1PjGtBYRa

    My comment in this article;

    How can the President authorize another extension for those that are unemployed for less than 99 weeks (Tiers 1 thru 4) without acknowledging or helping those over 99 weeks. If there are no jobs available for the short termed unemployed then there are NO jobs available period! What does he think happened to those over 99 weeks? They just died or disappeared! There are now millions of uncounted Americans that have exhausted all unemployment benefits and are not being acknowledged by the President or the main stream media.
    The government hasn’t even taken the time to accurately count the number of people that have been unemployed over 99 weeks. They have compiled estimates (a lower count looks like things are improving), but have not taken the time to contact 99ers or find out exactly how many people have reached 99 weeks and are no longer being counted. A very accurate and fast way to determine how many long termed unemployed (99ers) there are is by passing a Tier 5 or the bill in Congress HR589 extending unemployment 14 weeks for 99ers, and counting the number of respondents.
    There are so many people on line supporting the comments like there are jobs available (like McDonalds) and that 99ers are too lazy or proud to take those jobs. You people have no idea! There have been 99ers since MARCH 2010 without ANY income living on their retirement funds, nest eggs or having family members and friends support them. This extension proves that the President finally acknowledges there are not enough jobs available!
    This article is another load of crap with statements that read like it was written by someone outside the country. See the statement around the 10th paragraph down
    “How long more can the federal and state governments continue to provide extended jobless benefits?”

    How long more!

    As long as it takes to restore jobs that WERE and are STILL being eliminated and outsourced at the expense of the American public for corporate greed.
    Many complain that the country is broke and cannot support the long term unemployed. This is a lie!
    If we have the money to support tax cuts to the rich and corporations and while spending billions on never-ending wars (in which our sons and daughters fight and die) and giving billions of foreign aid to countries like Pakistan who hate us and protect our enemies. Then we have the money to support our own citizens that supported this country for many years. (comment taken in part from Abby, Texas June 17th, 2011)

    Remember in order to be eligible for the 99 weeks you had to have worked. These are not welfare recipients or people that never worked in the US before. Some of them have worked between 20 and 40 years. Only to find their government has ignored the need to help its own countrymen.

    It’s sad when a catastrophe like our long term unemployment which rivals national emergency’s like tornadoes, floods or hurricanes (just at a slower pace) is being ignored by the main stream media. Americans are turning they’re backs on other Americans by supporting the governments actions not to help, knowing you may have a job now or be financially OK, but you may soon be in the same predicament. Never have we ever imagined not being unable able to find employment in 2 years!

  2. Hello FTT,

    Here is my monthly rant, even though I’ve been MIA for well over that. I’ve been searching for new news on the tier 5 extention for well over a month, with no new updates. The bill is still stuck in limbo. I’ve been looking for jobs every single day, every type of job, every shift, every single wage, minimum and lower. No call backs, no interviews, no jobs. Life is sad when you can’t even score a job at Burger King. Really? I hate people that think the 99ers are lookIng for a hand out with this extention. I plan on using the money on starting a small business, because jobs are not in America, they are scattered around the world in third world countries, where the products are made for pennies on the dollar, and served back to us with a 1000% markup. BS. If we as Americans want to stop this bleeding, we should stop buying brand-name products, and I don’t mean for a week, month, a whole fucking year! What’s funny, when this depression started, our President, told us to spend money to help the economy, when we should of been saving all pennies, buying lower priced products or no products at all. Greed has enslaved us, Corporations have gotten out of hand. How is it that everybody pays taxes in this country but the rich and corporate? Really? If this lame ass government would retro taxes to all those that got breaks, we would be out of debts and have one of the richest economy the world again. Death to the Corporate Mafia!

  3. Glenn, and MG
    First off I’m a 99er like you. Have been since May of last year! Yep no pay for well over a year!
    If you’re waiting for a tier 5 you’re screwed, just like me! It’s not coming!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If they put us back into the system what do you think the unemployment rate would factually be? Do you actually think Odumbass would have a chance of re-election if that was posted?
    Guys………………… as much as I don’t want to say this…… it’s not coming. Find some way to over come it.
    Our Government is more corrupt then it’s ever been. And they do it right in front of our face! So why do we allow it?
    When Patriotic Americans are ready to Lock-n-load I’m ready to Rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lets go Boyz!

  4. It’s a shame that you’re absolutely right. The fact that the real unemployment numbers is why this bill will never see the light of day, really pisses me off. But honestly, do we really need to line up for tier 5? it’s common knowledge that the unemployment rate is not including the 99ers. With more Americans joining the ranks every month, it should be obvious that a decline in the rating per state is BS. It makes me laugh when the news reports a decline in unemployment. Really? Oh, right!? Americans are no longer claiming benefits, hence the “decline” rating. I swear, even with a nice 14 week lump sum, it still wont produce jobs. Believe me, I’ll take a job over a hand out, any day of the week. Those 14 weeks won’t help me get a job, I know this, but it might give me a shot at being a business owner. At least something to put faith in, while I spend the rest of what I can have to my name to stay afloat, before I’m homeless or living back with my parents. Head hanging down with a Computer Science Degree for a industry that is being outsourced quicker than the unemployment in this country. What will this government do? When the 99ers out number the workers? When people stop going to fast food joints, bars, movies, stores and anything that makes life that much better?

  5. Lock and Load, you are absolutely right! Tier 5 will never materialize because Obummer does not want us counted for the UE numbers….It is very sad for all of us who have been waiting and hoping for nothing….I feel sad for all of us….there are no jobs out there. I have tried like all of you, but there are too many of us applying for the same jobs….my friend told me about a job posting and the person hiring said 2500 applicants faxed resumes for the one job!! Unbelievable!

  6. Nice job Henry! As an independent thinker you correct Ron Paul for a weak position. I’m sure he has to walk a fine line with corporations, government and the people, just to get where he is, but corporations moving off shore and outsourcing are the main reasons why America is collapsing. The government doesn’t have the fortitude to prevent a future demise and are only looking for the short payoff. China has a 4% unemployment for the last decade! So why can’t we get the commercial to talk about unemployment and compensation for the 99ers? Why can’t we pool our resources and buy a few spots and ask for donations to advertise more?

  7. This is something to think about!

    America ‘s hunters! I had never thought about this….

    A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

    There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin.
    Allow me to restate that number.
    Over the last several months, Wisconsin’ s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
    More men under arms than in Iran.
    More than in France and Germany combined.
    These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.
    That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters,
    all of whom have now returned home..
    Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that
    the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
    The point?
    America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.

    Hunting — it’s not just a way to fill the freezer. It’s a matter of national security.
    That ‘ s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
    Food for thought when next we consider gun control.

    1. The people of this nation will never disarm, Brett and I’m one of them. That’s the beauty of it.
