The number of new jobless claims filed for the week was 429,000, the highest number since January. There are 8.2 million Americans drawing unemployment benefits. There are 15 million 99ers and probably another 10 million long term unemployed. We are losing jobs by the thousands every day, both to downsizing in the United States and through their export to other countries. Yet I heard a journalist say the unemployment rate dropped to 8%.
There is only one way all of this can make sense. There must have been a massive explosion on the sun that shifted us into a parallel universe wherein the laws of math and physics that we have known all of our lives cease to exist. The equation, e=mc2, is now BS=QE2 times the rate of inflation at the speed of light (25 mph) divided by 1 (which is the number people who actually believe this shit anymore) = 8% unemployment in a booming economy. I guess now that we understand it we can all stop worrying and get on with our lives.
It is being reported that though Paul Ryan is being attacked mercilessly at every town hall meeting he attends, his base is solidly behind him. Sorry, Paul, but that is only 20% of the top 10%. The rest of us are not going to allow you to make up the 26 trillion stolen dollars by canceling the debt the United States government owes to our Social Security Trust Fund. This is our money paid in from our paychecks that we worked for, and you can’t have it, you pathetic little weasel. In spite of your fuzzy math the majority of the people in this country have seen the white elephant in our living room that you represent. In short, there is no room for you here.
As for our unemployment insurance we are not getting that we paid for out of our paychecks of which you and your buddies have already stolen, we want it back. You know who stole our money, which makes you an accessory to the theft as you have failed in your fiduciary responsibility to enforce our laws and protect our people.
Enjoy your time in Washington because not only are we going to send you home, but we are going to make sure your political career is over. That goes for everyone who follows your lead in your quest to preserve the wealth of yourself and the few you represent. We represent an army that understands what is going on and is not going to let you steal one more dime.
Since the 112th Congress first came into session they have not done one thing to address the unemployed in this country. In fact all they have done is to further the transfer of wealth from the bottom to the top. So go ahead and make it the poor verses the rich if that is what you choose. But you might want to think about counting the numbers on each side of the fence before you start waving your flag and shouting your absolutism again.
So we will tell one more time, just in case you didn’t hear it. NO!
God bless this Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
