99ers and HR 589 Supporters Have You Heard the News?

What is going on in the news is certainly no secret as the Bin Laden barrage continues for the fifth straight day.  Congress has been back in session since Monday and I personally would like to know what those traitors are up to.  Well I guess most important to the 99ers would be what our self imposed champion, Barbara Lee, is doing to push HR 589 before the House. 

Let’s see, well actually she is not doing anything for the 99ers.  She wrote President Obama a letter calling for an expedited draw down of troops in Afghanistan in light of Bin Laden’s death, ah there he is again.  And she’s working diligently to reestablish woman’s health care in Washington DC, which has nothing to do with 99ers as we can’t afford health care.

I guess we better take a look and see what that sneaky little bastard Jim Jordan (R –OH) and his gang are up to.  Okay, these people are presently pushing HR 1135, which states that it is designed to “provide information on total spending on means-tested welfare programs, to provide additional work requirements, and to provide an overall spending limit on means-tested welfare programs.” 

So what are they really doing?  Well they are trying to put work requirements on people receiving food stamps.  Last time I checked when Americans were told you will do this work or you will starve to death, we labeled that slavery, and that is exactly what this represents, state sponsored slavery.  I know there will be a lot of people out there who will say that there is a choice involved.  Exactly what choice would that be, forced labor or starvation? 

But then you’ll say, well these low down food stamp recipients can always exercise their right to collective bargaining and force a wage that doesn’t equate to slavery.  Not so.  Hidden deep with HR 1135 is a provision that says that if any member of a family participates in a strike, the entire family will have their benefits taken away. 

That dirty little scum bag Jim Jordon is slithering around in the shadows of Congress pushing to enslave poor people at the same time he is pushing for further tax cuts for the low down dirty scum bags that made the poor, poor through the theft of the $26 trillion.

Tell me Jim Jordon, what have they promised you?  Wealth?  Girls?  Little boys?  You are of the lowest form of life to ever exist on this planet.  You are a coward and a traitor and you will suffer the wrath of the American people in 2012.

Middle class do not let them sell you this bullshit.  It has been long standing in this country that the people have accepted big farm subsidies for the corporate farms (corporate welfare) as a trade-off for allowing a little food for the poor.  This slimy little drip of worm sweat will take the food out of poor children’s mouths, cash it in, and give it to the corporations just for the privilege of them allowing him to lick their shoes.  This same little weasel is supporting the further export of jobs out of this country, which means he is supporting the further destruction of the middle class.

We cannot in any way allow these treasonous weasels to divide us to our own destruction.  Listen close, Jim Jordon; red, yellow, black, white, cowboy, hippy, rebel, yank, poor, and middle class we are the American people united.  We will have our $26 trillion back and woe is it to the traitors who try to stand in our way.

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

  1. New unemployment numbers since mid August, 474,000. Worst in eight months. It’s time to make some noise people.

  2. The situation is very degrading and disheartening. I am on public assistance and must complete a work search form that requires 30 hours of work search activity. Now, I am looking for work all the time, however I must report to a counselor at least once a month. No one would work for one week for what I get for one month. I am grateful for the help but at the same time I despise it. I just finished a two week assesment program at the unemployment office. I feel myself becoming a slave for a pittance. I am being degraded every step of the way while the corporations get richer and richer. Publice Assistance will demand more and more and I will come to the point where I would rather starve to keep my self-respect. My attitude has changed and I only wish that my attitude had changed when I was younger. In the past I was too trusting and naive. I wonder if I will ever get a job again. This government needs a major overhaul if we are to survive.

    By the way, HR 589 was brought up yesterday. As per Barbara Lee, there is no new date to bring the bill to the House floor for a vote. Surprise! Surprise! Mohammed A. El-Erian is a financial expert and recognizes America’s unemployment crisis. One 99er named 99erX, who was an active member in his community tried to take his life. He will survive, at least physically. I know that I have toyed with the idea. This life is dreadful. I think the government and corporations want us to eliminate ourselves so there is no blood on their hands and more money in their pockets. Anyway I still feel like shit. Please read examiner.com, article titled “H.R. 589 discussed, but no timetable for action. It’s a matter of life and death”

  3. Anybody out there thinking they need to eliminate themselves, do not, ” I REPEAT DO NOT!” we have a huge fight ahead of us, slavery shouldnt even be in are vocabulary. And Jim Jordan,” FUNNY GUY ” go ahead what ever sparks your flame, just remember when your up in flames even the little boy wont piss on you to put you out. My two cents for the day!

  4. In Ohio we already have to work to receive food stamps. That means the tell us where to go and we clean our Court House or work at a non-profit store.

  5. I love it. I’m a 99er and I hate the UNIONS or any other communist for that fact. I might be down, but you will not recruit me you pinko scammers. Work for stamps? Bill Clinton did it and it balanced our budget. Be strong Tea Party candidates. Do not give in to back stabbing liberals like Barbara Lee. Remember 99ers, do not trade your liberty for the temporary hand outs that these opportunistic communists are offering. Our government has crushed capitalism and that is why we are unemployed.

  6. HEY EVERYBODY HE IS RUNNING OUT OF DISTACTING HEADLINES!!! FIRST THE BIRTH CERT. THEN OSAMA… NOW WHAT???? NOTHING, OBAMA WILL NOW HAVE TO ADDRESS THE FAILING ECONOMY, AND THE 99ERS WILL BE THIS STARTING POINT. GIVE US OUR EXTENSION WE PAID INTO. THERE ARE NO MORE INCIDENTS HW COULD POSSIBLY USE!

  7. All the Republicans have asked for over last many months is an “offset”4
    It is obvious to anyone who has half a brain that Pakistan has been hiding Osama )very close to Obama) for a long time…ALL AID SHOULD BE CEASED IMMEDIATELY TO THAT TERRORIST COUNTRY…I am certain those funds will cover much of not all of the cost
    of HR589…..Unemployment is rising….and Obama does nothing

      It is awful that the 99er’s are left out in the cold. They have been unemployed he longest and still have no jobs. They are daily losing everything they have due to no jobs and now no help from the government. How is this going to help our economy by turning your backs on their plite? We will have food lines, tent cities, unpaid credit card bills and car loans and mtgs. Many are already losing all they have. Is this any way to treat our citizens? Do you think they really don’t want to work and lose what they have worked for all their lives? Think again. there are njobs to be had and all they want is some more help too. Add new tiers or longer periods onto existing tiers so at least they may have a fighting chance. You need to put yourselves in all unemployed shoes and see how feels to have to beg and wonder what will become of you and your families. You treat prisoners better than you are us and not to mention all the billions you give to banks and foreighn countries when they are in trouble so why not us too? You will be going on a month long vacation and we will be left to starve in the streets

      1. Dear American Taxpayer
        For only the second time in my adult life, I am not ashamed of my country. I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242 thousand dollars for my vacation in Spain . My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff and various guests had a wonderful time. Honestly, you just haven’t lived until you have stayed in a $2,500.00 per night suite at a 5-Star luxury hotel. Thank you also for the use of Air Force 2 and the 70 Secre Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times.

        Air Force 2 only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. These are only rough estimates, but they are close. That’s quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.

        I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet. I do appreciate your sacrifice and do hope you find work soon. I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I just had to get away for a few days!

        Cordially,
        Michelle Obama

        P.S. Thank you as well for the $200 MILLION-per-day trip to India we recently went on. Love ya, mean it.

        P.S.S. We had a great time in Hawaii .. and we’re now all jetting to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for another weekend of more fun in the sun!

  8. WASHINGTON May 5 (Reuters) – Leading Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday introduced a bill that would allow states to pay down debts for unemployment benefits with federal funds set aside for emergency aid.

    The legislation, introduced by the powerful chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Dave Camp, along with Kentucky’s Geoff Davis and North Dakota’s Rick Berg, would rely on $31 billion designated for extended unemployment benefits.

    Sen. Orrin Hatch, the most powerful Republican on the Budget Committee, is expected to introduce corresponding legislation in the Senate.

    The recession that ended in 2009 was marked by a rapidly increasing jobless rate, with unemployment reaching 10 percent at one stage. The federal government responded by paying for additional unemployment benefits for those who exhausted the typical 26 weeks of aid. Currently, jobless people can collect up to nearly 100 weeks of assistance.

    In the stimulus plan, the U.S. government also suspended interest charges on loans it makes to states for their jobless benefit programs.

    But when the stimulus plan ended last December, the interest suspension was lifted and states had outstanding unemployment loan balances totaling $48.4 billion, with $516 million of interest owed as of April 15, according to Loop Capital Markets.

    The legislation would allow states to apply the funds set aside for extended unemployment through the end of the year to pay interest or principal on the loans.

    States could also use the funds for re-employment services such as wage subsidies and for regular jobless benefits.

    While the bill will likely see easy passage in the Republican-controlled House, it could face troubles in the Senate, which is controlled by Democrats.

    President Barack Obama has suggested a different remedy for the swelling unemployment loan costs — a moratorium on interest payments and tax increases in 2011 and 2012.

    By federal law, states that do not fully repay their loans face another penalty. The federal tax credits given to businesses within their borders for unemployment insurance taxes could be cut, a threat hanging over more than 24 states, according to Loop. That might encourage businesses to lighten payrolls or move to other states where the credits are larger.

    To avoid the reduction and pay off the loans, states could increase unemployment taxes on employers, sell bonds or reduce benefits. According to a Ways and Means Committee fact sheet, state unemployment insurance taxes have risen 44 percent in the past two years.

    Meanwhile, the unemployment rate has gone down and some states no longer need funding for extended benefits, Republicans on the committee say.

    On Thursday, the Labor Department said the number of people collecting emergency unemployment benefits dipped 718 to 3.45 million in the week ended April 16, the latest week for which data was available.

  11. Hey everyone, did you hear the news.

The US is sending aid at over a billion a year to countries that want to kill, steal and destroy us.. Check it out, we need to make a bigger noise. This 99ers had it!!!!!!!!!

  12. Just want to personally thank Henry Shivley for creating this site for us 99ers. Can’t say that I agree with everything you’ve said but at 99%, that’s damn good. Appreciate your honesty and truly respect your opinions. Keep up the great work and if you ever decide to go into politics and run for anything, just let me know and you have my vote. Most importantly, I consider you a friend and an ally in this fight to save the 99ers although we have never met. Good luck to all the real 99ers ( there are some fake ones too and I spit on them),and remember to never give up hope because if we do, then they will win for sure!
