I did not claim unemployment when I got out. Part of that was because I savde a crap ton of money up before I punched, so I didn't think I'd need it, and part of it was that I was really, really depressed for a couple months when I got out. I simply didn't feel like doing the paperwork. Or leaving the apartment, for that matter. If I had it to do over again, I would have filed the claim.

The problem is that we absolutely MUST have a strong military but all of the other government agencies and programs you adore aren’t required. You have your priorities backwards and if you have your way, you’ll destroy the US economy and make us too weak to defend ourselves and/or our allies.
