99ers, Supporters of HR 589, and Middle Class UNITE! UNITE! UNITE!

Whether the unemployment legislation passed in Oregon will help a single 99er will not be ascertained until the week of April 17th as it will not take effect until then.  From what I have read I do not believe the legislation is for 99ers, but rather for those who have not yet reach 99 weeks.

During the duration of time when I was drawing my unemployment in the State of Oregon the state passed several extensions in order to get the unemployed through to the next federal extension. 

I do find it interesting that considering the fact that state unemployment and extensions are determined by the state, that 99 weeks has somehow become the national standard for unemployment limitations.  It is almost like our so called representatives in the state and federal governments were deliberating our fate every step of the way.

One gentleman on our site has suggested taking donations to raise money for a 99er commercial to be broadcast on the mainstream.  This is not a bad idea, but here at From the Trenches as long as our people are living in squalor and deprivation I do not think that we can with conscience even consider asking any 99er for any money, as we must keep this site pure to the cause. 

If and when we get an extension passed  and there are enough 99ers out there to support the idea of using money as a means to push our demands for our living wage jobs back, it may be feasible, but only under the most controlled circumstances that guarantee that every cent goes exactly where the individual 99er intends.

Our congress has left us for another week to contemplate their lack of action.  They somehow want to keep the issue of jobs front and center without ever having to address it.  They love to use the word, “job” when trying to justify their outrageous activities in transferring more wealth from the poor to the rich and passing laws to protect their fortunes.

I can envision a scenario wherein the government puts a hundred protesters up against the wall, guns them down, and then proclaims the act as completely justified as they have just created a hundred jobs for the unemployed. 

Although the press coverage has been brought to a minimum, union protests continue throughout the country.  As I’ve said before, I support those protesters as individuals and in principal.  But I cannot support labor unions as they are socialists at their core and harbor communistic ambitions. 

The people protesting are earnest in their assertions for justice; however the unions behind them are concerned with nothing more than money and power. 

This is why you do not see the unions paying for a commercial for the 99ers.  They know that the fact is the jobs that once employed us are now in foreign countries and the only way they are going to be returned is through a constitutional revolution which is not going to leave any socialist or communist in any desirable position. 

This is why the 99ers must join with their brethren and sisteren in the middle class for the reestablishment of our Republic.  And the middle class must do whatever they have to, to see to it that the 99ers have the basic necessities to survive and fight at their sides.

The propagandist machine is failing more every day as true reality is becoming so omnipresent that it can no longer be ignored.  I think the fact that the weather is warming as things continue to drastically get worse could cause decisive actions by the patriot population to begin to materialize and affect through the summer. 

This being the case I say let us 99ers get the party started by putting every effort into seeing the Easter Project made a reality.  Also April 2nd is coming up and many among our people are calling on us to be in the streets.  I intend to participate and hope that all who reads this will do the same. 

The fact is I believe that if we were having an event once a week, a little exposure would gradually turn into a lot, as 99ers not in the know would be seeing with their own eyes what is going on and want to participate.  In short, 99ers and middle class, unite, unite, unite!

  1. Good Morning Henry. I also mentioned the possibiliy of starting a fund for the Trenches. This is going to have to take place at some point because we can not do what we need to do without money. Now may not be the right time as we don’t want new people to think that the only message here is money. Last week didn’t bring us many new members but we will continue to get the message out and pray. I am not up-to-date on the legislation passed in Oregon. I have 2 doctor appointment today but will start spreading this website when I return. My prayers are with you all.

    1. Henry, last nite, on the news, the Ministry of Propaganda again reported that the unemployment rate was only 9%. I understand that they’re only counting the people still getting benefits, but I can’t understand how they keep getting away with using that number. The employed people in this country are so dumbed -down, brainwashed by bullshit media distractions and technological instant gratification ( which is just the way the Govt. wants them to be ), it’s pathetic. Maybe, when the unemployment rate hits 98%, they’ll figure it out !

  2. I JUST FILED ANOTHER CLAIM CERTIFICATION ON SUNDAY AND IT PAID OUT ZERO DOLLARS BECAUSE I AM A 99ER WHOs FUNDS HAVE BEEN EXHAUSTED SINCE 12/20/2010. SOMEONE HELP ME. I HAVE HIT ROCK BOTTOM. IM DONE.

    1. I am so sorry to hear that. I wish I had some words of encouragement but I don’t. Hang in there. Please help us post this website on other sites that you visit. This is our only hope. We have got to get stronger in numbers. Please join our Nationwide Rally.

    2. Tex, I’ve been the same position some months ago,and I feel for ya. I got help with my utilities from the Salvation Army. They can also help with your rent (one or the other every 6 months ). I’ve also gotten help from charitable Christian agencies or crisis assistance agencies. This helped me from Oct. till Feb. They can, on average, only help you once every 6 months. My son and I got evicted the 2nd week in Feb. because I still couldn’t find a job, but we’re lucky enough to have some friends let us stay with them TEMPORARILY. There is temporary help out there, but sometimes it’s hard to find it. Hang in there, brother. We’re all in the same boat. Some are just sinking faster than others

  3. Good Morning Henry, and All. I will be attending another “job Fair” at the local fair grounds this Wednesday march 30Th I am thinking of making banners to post on the fair ground gates asking employers to hire 99Er’s do you have any suggestions?

    Eli,

  4. I am a 99er whos been laid off for 3 years now.
    I cant find any work because of my age, and time out of work.
    I am eager to participate in the Rally April 2nd, however I have no idea where it will be held.
    I am from Irvine california.
    Can somebody please find out what the location of the Rally for us will be at?

  5. I called the Majority Leader and the Speaker of the House and left word to please pass HR 589. My wife and I are both unemployed. My upstairs neighbor is a 99er, my next door neighbor is one as well. He lost his house, I cannot pay our rent, purchase food or pay the utilities. Our govt is doing absolutely nothing to help Americans that need work or temporary assistance. I am sure they have no problem cutting checks to Japan or helping the rich. What are 5 million americans going to do? We have tightened our belts and have run out of options.

  6. Maybe one of the Hollywood liberals could pay for a commercial to bring attention to the 99er’s. With congress on an extended leave and our milk toast leader preoccupied with another war it does not seem that our elected officials care. If no extension maybe lowering the retirement age to 60 could at least allow the older 99er’s some financial relief as no one will actually hire them!

  7. I AM THAT MAN WHO SUGGESTED WE CREATE OUR OWN MEDIA VOICE WITH A 99ER SELF FINANCED COMMERCIAL…
    BY NO MEANS DID I SUGGEST THOSE WITHOUT NEED CONTRIBUTE BUT ONLY SUPPORT IT BY SPREADING THE NEWS AND OFFER SUGGESTION..
    MAYBE SOMEONE IS A FORMER PRODUCTION CREW MEMBER, AN AD AGENCY MANAGER, A CONNECTION TO AN A LIST CELEBRITY, OR PHILANTHROPISTS LOOKING TO HELP..
    TO SAY DONATING CHANGE OR A DOLLAR WOULD SOMEHOW GIVE FODDER TO A CRITIC IS STRETCHING IT, MY POINT IS 2 MILLION UNEMPLOYED AT 25 CENTS EACH IS A $500,000 COMMERCIAL… IT WOULD TAKE ALL OF 2 MINUTES TO DONATE LOOSE CHANGE AND THERE ARE SEVERAL ONLINE SECURE METHODS OF DOING SO… EVEN THOSE THAT SET UP AN ACCOUNT SECURING ALL DONATIONS DIRECTLY INTO SUCH WITH RECORD OF ALL FOR ACCOUNTING…

    SOMEWHERE OUT THERE IS SOMEONE LOOKING TO MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES…
    BEING THE HERO TO SEVERAL MILLION FAMILIES WOULD MAKE YOU A LEGEND,
    A NATIONAL FOLK HERO…

    ARE YOU SERIOUS, JUST 1 PRO ATHLETE WHO REMEMBERS WHERE HE CAME FROM COULD ROCK OUR WORLD WITH HIS POCKET CHANGE…

    WE NEED TELEVISION EXPOSURE YOU CAN IGNORE THE NET COMMENT BOARDS, YOU CAN IGNORE OPINION, BUT YOU CANT IGNORE A WORLD OF 52 INCH T.V.S EXPOSING THE TRUTH… …

    HOW MANY MILLION WAS THAT 1 JET THAT WENT DOWN IN LIBYA, HOW MANY MILLIONS WERE THAT FIRST VOLLEY OF ROCKETS AND MISSILES.. HOW MANY MILLION DID WE SEND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STARVING AND HOMELESS WITHOUT THEM EVEN ASKING…

    THING IS, THAT’S OUR MONEY… AND WHO S FEEDING AND HOUSING US…
    IN FACT HAS ANY OTHER COUNTRY EVER FED AND HOUSED AMERICAN CITIZENS IN NEED…

    1. Marc, great writing. I’m in that is for sure. This sounds like a perfect cause
      for Willie Nelson, with him doing Farm Aid. There has to be a way of getting
      this in front of him. And as always, it will the people helping people.
      Congress is only concerned about where to spend their spring break or if
      “boner” cries when he sees somebody shit in his Easter basket. Marc, like you I believe this can happen.

  8. OBAMA JUST GAVE AN INTERNATIONAL SPEECH ABOUT HELPING TH LIBYAN PEOPLE. ” WHY DONT YOU HELP YOUR OWN DAMN PEOPLE 1ST MORON!!!!!!!!!”
    THE TAX PAYING LAID OFF 99ERS YOU CHINLESS WONDER OBAMA !!!!!!

    1. DEMOCRAT911,
      YEAH, I SAW THE LOW DOWN!!!!! TREASONOUS!!!!!! TRIPE-EATING!!!!!! NIGERIAN/KENYAN/HAWAIIN/SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO!!!!!! BAT-EARED!!!!!LONG-LEGGED MACK DADDY!!!!!!!!!! SON OF A BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. All I could think about, as I was watching that traitor talk about the AID he was going to give to the Libyan people was, fuck the Libyan people, Barry, you traitorous bastard ! What about the American people ! This country is supposedly broke, but it keeps pouring money into foreigners pockets, while ignoring it’s own citizens. Why don’t we just make the whole world a ” no fly zone ” and rename our country The United States Police Force of the World ?

    1. I have had a 99ers donation button on every page of my website http://joblessunite.yolasite.com for months and months and also on my Zennie62 blogs and the donations have totaled a net of less than $11 – which remains in my PayPal account as I hope to use any money to HELP 99ers in some way and giving $ to this Trenches site is as good a use as any for funds collected.

      Paypal takes almost $ .40 of the first dollar donated per donation. I know this because in the last 4 months I have had 1 person (a 99er in fact) generously give $1 and it registered as 62 cents.

      It is a great idea to have a way to donate, but as I have personally discovered – not too many folks actually do donate when given the opportunity. I pray that changes.

  9. unless im wrong, the money thats protecting and feeding and housing the Libyans is the tax dollar of us Americans…
    i just heard it cost 600 million for a week of being there…
    HOLD ON, DID’NT BONER JUST SAY WE WERE TO BROKE TO HELP AMERICANS…
    FOLKS ITS TIME TO SEND THESE ASSHOLES HOME… THEY THINK WE ARE IDIOTS.

  10. DO YOU BELIEVE CONGRESS IS LEAVING FOR A 2 week vacation….
    THESE FOLKS ARE THROWING PIE IN OUR FACE..
    THEY ARE TELLING US TO GO F__K OURSELVES IN A DISCREET WAY…

    1. They will be taking yet ANOTHER 2 week vacation at the end of April too for Easter. They don’t do any work while they are there anyway – so Exactly WHY do we pay them the Big Bucks?????

  11. Oregon’s Senate passed two bills for the unemployed. Senate Bill 637 is for those who have not yet reached the 99 week mark continue to recieve the Federal Extensions. But the House also passed Senate Bill 638, which offers an additional six weeks of state benefits to Oregonians who have been out of work for more than 99 weeks and have exhausted all other benefits, including the federal extensions. The Governor has already signed both.

    1. State of Oregon Unemployment Insurance Legislation Signed by Governor

      On Thursday, March 24, 2011, The Governor signed two bills relating to unemployment insurance benefits:

      Senate Bill 637 allows for the continuation of the extended benefits (EB) program. The bill does not add additional weeks to the program; it allows the state to continue paying EB.

      Senate Bill 638 allows for Oregon Emergency Benefits, an extension of unemployment insurance benefits for individuals who have exhausted all other extensions.

      The first payable week will be the week of April 17-23, 2011. The department will send notice to all individuals potentially eligible. It is not necessary to contact your UI center at this time, as you cannot file for the extension early.Although SB 637 will not help 99’ers who have exhausted their benefits as of October 2010. SB 637 will help claimants who have not yet exhausted all of their regular benefits, Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) extension benefits, and Extended Benefits (EB). SB 637 will help those who have received less than 99 weeks receive up to 99 weeks. SB 638 will help 99’ers receive potentially 6 more weeks of Oregon Extended Benefits (OEB). It will also help people who have exhausted the benefits on their regular claim but did not earn sufficient wages in their base year to be eligible for EUC and EB. If SB 638 is passed and OEB becomes available, the Employment Department will immediately notify claimants by mail if they may be eligible.

      To track these bills utilize the Oregon State Legislature website located at: http://www.leg.state.or.us/index.html.

  12. I am 99er and 56 searching for a job for almost 3 yrs sending 1000’s of resumes only to get a response that we will keep your resume on file or you are over qualified. I have worked in Medical Field for 30 years and submitted resumes in every inconceivable Monster.com and our local Toledo Blade. They never even give me a response and some will. It frustrating when I want to work so bad and there 100’s out there also applying for the same job. I have also applied thru temporary agencies and to no avail they say they to many applicants trying our for jobs. They say don’t call us we will call you. For the last 2 years I have not have no calls. WE NEED HELP RIGHT NOW TO HELP US KEEP A ROOF OVER OUR HEAD AND OUR UTILITIES GOING, GAS IN OUR CAR WHICH UNGODLY GONE UP, INSURANCE FOR OUR CAR/HOME TO RUN OUR CAR TO FIND A JOB, TAXES ON OUR HOME… WHERE DOES THE GOVERNMENT THINK THE MONEY IS COMING OUT OF OUR A**S? WE DESPERATELY NEED HELP AND OUR CHILDREN DESERVE A BETTER LIFE THAN HAVING TO WONDER WHEN THEY ARE GOING EAT AND KEEP A ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS WHILE THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO GO SCHOOL TO LEARN. WE HAVE HAD A BAD WINTER AND OUR GAS BILLS HAVE DOUBLED AND SOME FAMILIES HAVE TO RESORT TO OTHER MEANS AND SOME FAMILIES ARE DYING FROM IT WHEN THEY CAN’T AFFORD THEIR GAS AND THEIR HOUSES BURN DOWN. THEN YOU HAVE SOME THAT SUBJECTED TO SUICIDE TO END THEIR MISERY. WHAT IS OUR COUNTRY COME TO? WE ARE AMERICANS AND WHAT HAPPEN TO THE AMERICAN DREAM? THEY CAN HELP ALL THE RICH AND OTHER COUNTRIES BY THE BILLIONS AND TRILLIONS, BUT THEY CAN’T EVEN HELP US!! WE NEED HELP NOW IT HAS BEEN GOING ON TO LONG PUTTING THIS LEGISLATION OFF AND OBAMA NEEDS TO GET HIS B**TT TOGETHER AND ALL THE DEM/REP TOGETHER TO MAKE AN MAJOR DECISION AND REALIZE THAT WE DID NOT CREATE THIS CATASTROPHE. IT IS NOT OUR FAULT THIS IS HAPPENING. WE NEED HELP I HOPE WHEN PROTESTERS ON APRIL 2 WILL HAVE THEM REALIZE THAT WE NEED HELP.!!! OBAMA HELP US PLEASE!!!CONGRESS/REP/SENATE….

  13. Hi fellow 99ers! We have been screwed over and over by our own government and yet we do nothing except beg or complain. Obama stated that Gadaffieduck must step down because he is killing his own people, so what the hell is Obama going to do in order to help us millions of 99ers who are suffering from lack of jobs and running out of unemployment benefits for months. Obama must be removed from power unless he wakes up to the plight of the 99ers NOW! We need new blood from within our new party come 2012 election, a candidate who is a 99er from the new “99ers” political Party (hey, if the Titties Party can do it, why can’t we?) because the Dumbocrats and Republican’ts are basically on the same side when it comes to helping the unemployed workers of America. Obama has been bought and sold just like all the Presidents before him, he can only offer sweet talks but is nothing more than a cowardly puppet. It’s all about money and power in Congress, something that the 99ers don’t and will never have. People asked whether we 99ers see the glass half full or empty and my response was “what glass?” My UIB has stopped since last March 2010 and after sending hundreds of resumes, got an offer for a part-time commission only job. How can a commission only job be classified as part-time? It ‘s sad that my friends, neighbours and relatives don’t eben know what a 99er is. they either think that it is someone who plays for a pro football team in San Francisco or is into kinky sex positions. I am running out of options to survive folks, sold everything and borrowed up the ying yang without and I may have to either beg or steal to survive. With my luck, I would get hit by a getaway car driven by another 99ers who has just robbed a bank while I was standing in a street corner with a sign. We need all the help we can get including keeping an eye on the American99ersunion but just don’t put too much hope in it because we have been burnt before by Senator Stab-her-now last year, and HR 589 may just end up being another nail in the coffin for us 99ers. Just imagine thousands of 99ers dying and buried in one coffin like sardines because we can’t afford a decent burial. I have already told my wife that if I die, just cremate me then flush my ashes down the toilet. Can’t say hang in there because there is nothing left to hang on to, others say just keep on praying but many of us are too weak to even pray because we haven’t been able to eat so well and are so damn depressed that we may end up doing something really stupid like going out to rob a very rich person!!! It sucks to be a 99er right now, especially when you are in your fifties like I am.

    1. DDO – You are so right! It is such a difficult thing to fathom why 99ers are not rioting in the streets with their dying breaths instead of killing themselves or going quietly into the great black hole of homelessness and hunger. I have tried to “Rally the troops” as has the writer of this blog and the 99ers Union as well as hundreds of others but NO GO. I just do not get it!

      Obama will not step down especially with no incentive to do so. If we want our Govt officials to get off their dead butts we must get off of ours and MAKE THEM do the right thing.

      Millions of 99ers out there and not even one 99er group has a membership of more than a few thousand. Unbelievable and unacceptable! It comes down to one thing: HOW BAD do the 99ers want to survive? Bad enough to MAKE Washington listen by takinvg to the streets in hundreds of thousands or ??????

    2. Obamas speech continues with phonetically rendered farting. A creeping crawling sentiment of rot. Never favored anything that stinks!!! 2012 can’t come soon enough!

  14. Hi there again fellow 99ers, there is an invisible force at work that is dividing us 99ers from within in order to prevent us from uniting (it’s the divide and conquer tactics proven to be very effective at times) as a legitimate group. Why is our Government doing this to us? It’s because we are the living proof of their failure to handle domestic affairs. Please be aware that all the bickerings going on in Congress are just for show, regardless which party has the upper hand, the outcome has been predetermined. Seing Congress at work is like watching a live cheap soap opera for the ladies or, a wrestling match for the guys, it’s so pathetic. Unfortunately, most of us do truly believe that because we vote those clowns into office, they would perform for us. We all need to wake up and smell the dog-pooh emanating from Washington DC before it is too late. Let me tell you what I think of HR 589 or HB 6556, it is nothing but a hogwash created by the Dumbocrats to mislead us again into thinking that they are our friends. Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on Obama! I don’t care who started this recession but I blame the current administration for keeping us rotting in it by not doing enough and yet they managed to pay trillions of dollars for now 3 freakin’ wars! Shame on the Dumbocrats as well as the Republican’ts for being not just un-American, but anti-American for abandoning us 99ers. They are ignoring us because they know they can, and nothing is going to change the course of action that they have taken to slowly destroy the middle-class citizens so that everyone will likely someday become a 99er ( new definition of a 99er: someone who has not jonly exhausted his/her 99 weeks of benefits but an unvoluntary victim of modern American genocide). The GOP are so stupid because they are turning this country into a socialist state with a full blown revolution waiting to happen. The reason that it has not happened yet is because we are still one of the richest nation in the world, but when gasoline hits $10.00/gallon and believe me, it will happen sooner that you’d think because the GOP love to see the oil stock going through the roof while Obama can sell you on an alternative source of green energy. Hey, there are millions and millions of us classified as poor against only 2% of them rich bastards and yet they win everytime, what is wrong with this picture folks? They are always testing us just like when they extended Bush’s tax break for the rich, the majority of us poor Americans (making less that $250K/year) would save a few hundred to a few thousand dollars at most while the rich got away with murder, and we were so poor with greed and desperate to be on the winning side of the rich folks that we caved in to their demands, and that is why they would always triumph over us little people. Enough is enough I say, unless we fight back and fight to win, I am tired of the enemy looking down on us as “born losers”. The question of the day is how do we defeat them in order to save ourselves and our dying children?
