99ers Supporters of HR 589, You Must Do the Work

The treasonous Tory dirt bag, Stuart Varney, said on FOX Business Wednesday that a new ADP report says the private sector added 217,000 jobs last month.  So who is the ADP?  Well it is a cartel of businessmen who run their own website. 

I do believe that 217,000 jobs were created by private American businesses last month, in China, India, and South Korea.  This is why, after making his announcement, Varney had to admit that the number he was putting forth was not reflected by the U.S. Department of Labor and Statistics. 

The fact is we are losing hundreds of thousands of jobs every month and are indeed expected to lose three million in the public sector and another two million in the private.  But guess what?  The unemployment rate is supposed to go down, and yes it will, as the unemployment count is derived through calculating the number of people receiving unemployment benefits.  When the long term unemployed become 99ers they are removed from the equation. 

We are going to lose another six million jobs this year and the unemployment rate is going to drop to 7%, because hey, it is a natural fact that when people run out of unemployment it is because they stop looking for work.  What a load of horse kaka.

As all of these things are happening the 99ers will continue to do nothing.  Not all, but most.  Between workouts, taking care of this site, and the online school I am attending, I put in about ten hours a day.  Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining.  The fact is I have to be doing something, as I cannot just sit idly by while my world is being destroyed.

In trying to find ways to organize the 99ers I have conversed with some of the best organizers in this country.  All have told me the same thing, the problem with organizing the 99ers is that though they want to achieve, they are not willing to do the work.  And in all truth this is exactly what I am seeing.

In Tuesday’s article I challenged all 99ers viewing this site to watch the informational documentary Zeitgeist III-Moving Forward.  And then, using its content, go to every site and expose the truth as to the root cause of our problem.  I did this for a reason as I had found the most simple, safe, and labor un-intensive way possible to attack and destroy the credibility of the mainstream propaganda machine. 

How many people watched the documentary and went to work on the project?  From what I see on this site, not a damn one.  This is why we cannot get anywhere.  Quite simply because nobody wants to do the work.

As I said earlier I work about ten hours a day, seven days a week and I am not making a dime.  Think about it this way.  If you would be willing to work for nothing, do you think you would have a problem in that nobody could find anything for you to do?  I assure you, you would not and indeed this is another facet of the problem. 

The fact is there is plenty of work to be done.  It is just that as the gap between the haves and have-nots increases, there are less and less persons with the wealth to pay someone to work.  It is indeed a self perpetuating degradation of the entire concept of a working society.  And it is never going to change.  Why?  Because only a handful of us are willing to roll up our sleeves and do the work. 

No matter how much I have on my plate, I try to make sure that at least one new article goes up on this site every day, for no other reason than to try to hold together the numbers that have united thus far. 

If you read From the Trenches you know that when an unemployment extension is brought up people flock to this site.  Not to see what they can do to make it happen, but rather to find out when they can expect a check.  Once they see no extension is forthcoming, they go back to doing nothing more than waiting for the handful of us who are not afraid of the work to solve their problems for them. 

And then after a little time has lapsed, and nothing seems to be going forward, they come to the site with their whining comments saying nothing is ever going to happen because no one is doing anything about it.  Quite frankly this is pathetic.

I have a message for all of you out there who think someone needs to do something.  You are someone.  You are someone who wants somebody else to do the work while you sit back and wait for the benefit.  I have to say there are probably about 2% of us trying to make a difference and the other 98% aren’t worth the powder it would take to blow their brains out.

One of our readers, Joey Duenas, created a music video designed to inspire our people to action.  In short, he did something.  There is a new page on From the Trenches.  It will be for 99er videos.  This can be a music video, and instructional video, or even a rant.  Of course we are going to show some class, therefore there will be no filthy language involved.  You know me, I’ll use a cuss word now and again and even a little profanity if I am really angry, and that is fine.  Just keep it classy.

I tell all you 99ers out there 2% of us are not going to be able to fix this for you.  So get off your lazy asses, become somebody and do something.

God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we in the free coalition shall prevail.

  1. Welcome to America…the newest 3rd world country!!!

    1. If we can help other countries what about us i have never been lazy and waiting for a hand out if there is no jobs what do we do i have worked since i was 14 and its been 2 years since i had a job.i was told by an unemployment agent to move to another state that is hiring. its not until it happen to them. what do we do now, thank god for families

  2. I email my Democratic congressman and senator weekly about extending unemployment benefits to 99er’s. I have yet to receive a response other than requests for donations!

  3. Fox news is the worst. They are very much to the right and they are liars.
    They want Americans to believe everything is okay when it’s not. We in the trenches know what’s going on. Our job is to search out jobs. I research each and everyday the job market. There is no job market. So I research the hidden job market. Meaning companies, corporations and firms that exist. I contact them and say their not hiring. I’ve been during this three years. So you figure I contact about thirty employers a day for three years who say their not hiring. Do the math.
    We are the people that have to put a stop to this maddness.
    I just read that for years the U.S. has been sending 2 billion plus monies to Egypt.
    This is crazy. Please lets form our protests now!

    Who are these people that run this country. They care about egyptions more than their own. We the unemployed people who have worked 30+ years and paid taxes up the yazoo for years. We are in trouble here in America and they give our money to others!
    This is crazy. Please lets form our protests now!

  5. Dear Henry,

    I have called my representatives daily, only to get some uninformed intern who does not forward my messages. Please give more information as to what we can do to get this extension passed through the House.

    Thank you.

  6. Give me the job to check up on people who collect walfare disabilty and do nothing but some can that would make a lot of jobs for 99ers that are looking for jobs and cant get NICE GOVERNMENT

  7. Is there really only 250 unemployed people that use the internet? Have you guys not seen the HR 589 bill review at OpenCongress? Only 250 people support it? Let’s not fail our cause, get our voices heard. Lets show them how many people really approve this bill, and also follow all the details about HR 589.


    Sign-up and vote in favor of this bill. This should be on the main agenda for this website.

    Lets get this number up to the millions, and then present it to the media!!

  8. Illegal immigrants are desperate and use less as good neighbors in the U.S. They break laws entering our country then are to scared to report criminal activity of which is a deep concern to U.S communities and citizens. Most illegal immigrants are lazy drunks, illegal drug users, not smart and business owners are to blame too for hiring / harboring them which makes them worse than the illegal immigrant. Also we should push congress to have all business owners / hiring managers in the U.S jailed & fined if they knowingly hire an illegal alien. Our U.S government corporations and business owners have figured out how to enslave, rob us, and kill us without even using a gun. These Guys R Evil Geniuses! Watch Out U.S Citizens & The International Poor! Every time a U.S business hires and illegal alien before a legal citizen is an assault or act of indirect violence to cause death to legal U.S citizens by financial impairing us. Please help us stop this pelage that is destroying our young growing nation and support the American Dream at http://usmoa.org/

  9. I have tried and tried for the past 3 years now to get a job – sent out thousands of resumes to different places and filled out it seems to be thousands of applications and have received 6 interviews over the past 3 years and am told I am overqualified? Where the hell do you get a job when you are over qualified? What is the world coming to? I have worked the past 33 years and now it seems I am washed up or out to employers , Maybe I will go back to school to be a senator – They seem to have it well in life now days.

    1. i agree with u we would do a much better job, they have nothing to worry about. they have a job but let it be one of their family members lets see how far they would go to take care of them assholes

  10. The United States is becoming a third world country. Without jobs this country is rated like any other third world country. The United States has fallen into the hands of the greedy on Wall Street that just like to steal everyone’s money and than get billions more from the government so they could still live in their mansions and live high society. We the good hard working middle class unemployed have been exploited. We have been screwed by Wall Street and the government as pawns. This so called government and wall street has flew in private jet planes to Washington to ask the government for billions so they could continue to buy private jets and mansions. When it comes to the good hard working Americans who have lost their jobs because of these greedy people they turn their backs. We shall overcome these greedy crooks with protest and demonstrations. We did it in tht 60’s and we could do it again. We might be a bit older, though we have to do it and teach our children to do it for the right of all people. We have worked hard for 30+ years to keep this country alive. We are the very people who were born in this country, whop love this country and the new minded greediness on Wall STREET HAVE TAKEN IT AWAY. YOU KNOW THE TYPE! THE SHREWD, HEARTLESS, SCUM THAT ONLY CARES ABOUT THEMSELVES. THESE WALL STREET PUNKS ARE ANYWHERE FROM 27 TO 40 YEARS OF AGE THAT HAS RUINED OUR ECONOMY. THE OTHER CULPRITS ARE FROM BANKS. SAME AGE GROUP, THESE IDIOTS WERE GIVING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE LOANS WHO COULDN’T AFFORD IT IN THE LONG RUN.

    1. Ted,
      Excellent comment. This is what we need to be talking about. We have to attack at the heart of the problem. If we aggressively go after the root cause an unemployment extension will just be a consequence of the events we put into motion. No matter what else we do, in the end we still have to take our country back.

  11. Not only will our politicians not listen to us, but now, some are refusing the funds that were designated to the unemployed earlier this year from the federal government. Take Rep. Lembke in Missouri for example. He put a filibuster on those funds this week and said, “these people need to get off their backsides and find a job, maybe two or three if that is what it takes. They need to stop stealing from their neighbors”. Meanwhile, he is in the news for fighting a red light ticket and says he was not driving his car because he has four cars that he uses. What a HYPOCRITE!!!! This guy is the biggest creep that I have ever seen, please go to his website, e-mail, call, post, whatever to get this guy out of the position that he is in. I BEG YOU!!!!

  12. what is he talking about.people don’t know what we are going through.Do you know that there’s alot of 99ers that have no access to a computer.they keep saying they are going to help us.let’s be real no help for 99er,but wait till more join us.i want to see what are going to do.can’t believe you work so many years,and this is what we get.you think they care they have jobs.

    1. Miriam your so right let it happened to their punk asses and see what they do, they could care less what happen to us. i’m surprise it ‘s not more robberies and killings going on.the president suck right now because he has the power to help and wont.maybe we should all go back to the 70’s and smoke pot and livr free or maybe we could all sell drugs and make money. what else do you do to support your families.obama will not get my vote to return as president

  13. Hi Everyone.

    For two years I have emailed Obama, Senators, Representatives, and recently the new Gov. Dayton. I have never received an email answer back to any of my unemployment, create jobs concerns.

    So if Mr. Shivley wants to make a statement that only two percent are reacting of the unemployed, that is so not true. All I think is that if Washington can send the Taxpayers money over to Lybia, and Egypt , etc. They need to pull their heads out of you know where.

    Because pretty soon there will be rivalry right here on American ground. It won’t be a very pretty sight.

    If people didn’t like the 2010 elections. They are so not going to like 2012. The Dems’ & Gop’s are done.

    I will pick dog poop, garbage, and whatever, but I won’t pay taxes ever again. So they can KISS my A__ goodbye.

    1. Kate,
      Every 99er is reacting to not having the money for basic survival, but only 2% of us are ready to roll our sleeves up and participate in physical labor as a part of our reaction. This and the fact that the 2% are spread all over the country is truly the heart of the problem.
      The fact is the other 98% are suffering in silence as they have become institutionalized into the system to the point that they cannot conceive a government that would completely ignore their plight. And when they have to come to the reality of what it is going to take to get back what we have lost, they don’t know whether to shit or go blind. So they sit around their houses in catatonic brain fart waiting for reality to change to suit them without their participation.
      We have got to snap them out of it and get them to doing actual physical labor in the effort to save ourselves. So if I have to insult people every once in a while in order to let them know that their inactivity is unacceptable to us, well that is what I’m going to do.
      If you are truly working towards a solution you would of course be excluded from the 98% and indeed would be a part of the 2%.
      United we stand.

    2. Kate,

      Saying you’ll never pay taxes again really means you plan on never working a real job with benefits, doesn’t it? I don’t know if there are any good jobs you’re qualified to do. Let’s pretend that right now the fairy job mother landed on your shoulder and said, “Here’s a great $90K position with fantastic bennies, do you want to start tomorrow morning?” You’d say, “No, I can’t. I’m a 99er who’s vowed never to pay into the system again.”

      Good luck and report back often.

      1. What? The IRS is NOT a Government Entity! We’ve been institutionally conned into paying into it. I’m suprised you didn’t say to “Join you on Big Daddy’s pleasure boat.”

  14. Get the unemployed, and homeless to step up to the plate, and run for government elections. That will change the whole scope of government as you now know it.

  15. I email my senators and representatives, President Obama, Vice President Biden, and House Speaker John Boehner. I get the “automated” email response back saying they are fully aware of the plight of the unemployed, blah blah blah… I keep sending them anyway at least once a week. I also talk to any and all my friends and acquaintances asking them to do the same so at least I’m doing something to make people aware!

    1. Lori,
      Outstanding. I guess that would put you among the 2%. Now don’t you wish the other 98% would get off their asses and get with the program?

  16. How can we the 99ers all get together and rally when we cant even afford to put gas in our car if we still have a car to make a stand about all this????? We need a real game plan not just BS talk about it.

    1. In Need of Cash,
      If every 99er was ready to participate right now you would not need gas. By the time the 99ers had congregated within 10 city blocks we would have plenty of people for a protest or anything else. The problem is 10,000 spread out across the United States can’t exactly meet somewhere to accomplish the group affect. So all we can do is keep trying to reach more 99ers until our communication with one another allows us to find out who is right next door or down the street that is also desperately wanting to do something. We have to have mass communication before we can organize in numbers.
      Hell if we all had gas all it would take is a couple of million of us and march on Washington and well, they wouldn’t be treating us this way in the first place if we could afford gas. This is why they took us down slowly over two years. If they had tried to take everything in one day I do believe they would have had a fight on their hands.

  17. The unemployment rate is going down because more and more people are exhausting their benefits!!!

  18. Henry,

    There are multiple articles on record that confirm that the unemployment rate is not derived from unemployment benefits figures. It’s based on surveys (poses other sets of problems, but nonetheless…).


  19. I agree there are not enough 99ers using there voice. But the ones who are, are not being heard. One problem might be most of the 99ers don’t have the internet. I am on the internet everyday writing emails blogging searching for info on unemployment but its seems to be a waste of time. Because our government don’t give a hoot about us. The republicans are putting people out of work and in the unemployment line. Just don’t know what to do……………..

  20. This country was set up for the poor to fail and the rich to suceed, they seems to forget we were the ones who vote for the to be our senators and neither party is about shit right now. i have lost all faith in our government right now.

  21. I dont have time to set in front of the computer i have to look everyday for work, try to find odd jobs just to pay rent and bills.

  22. I periodically check out your site and read it when I can. But, I’m NOT unemployed. I’m overemployed LOL MY husband is the 99er I work 7 days per week between 2 jobs 65- 68 hours per wk to try to keep us afloat. I read part of todays post but will have to come back another day to finish it.. I WISH my husband could/ would check this site but he barely knows how to sign on to the pc after 12 frickin years.Hence one of his stumbling blocks , I’m sure, at finding a new job after 4 years unemployed at his age56 So, Some of us would like to help but aren’t sure we have the time
