So how many people is that exactly?Clearly, it only make republicans look bad to those that happen to catch a blurb or two from the LSM. People, as evidenced here in this thread, that actualy understand what happened, are not fooled, nor are they swayed.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Finally a good move.
Liberals start now and you can cry me a river.
Here is Pelosi either showing that she's a total fool, retarded, a dumb ass or my vote which is all three.
Pelosi: Unemployment Checks Fastest ... Create Jobs -
I believe people seriously look for work just before benefits run out.
I think it's time to hold Obama and the current Congress responsible for wasting nearly $787 billion dollars to create a net ZERO jobs while continuing to lose millions.
Congrats to the "Trifecta of Doom," Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the "Blame America Firsters," for all the waste.
From now one they will be called "Firsters" by me and they will remain last in my book and always hold a place as Anti-Americans.
Let the name calling begin.

1. the fact that they are only blocking this so that it can be paid for hardly puts them in opposition to unemployment benefits.
2. i wish they were. extending unemployment benefits at this point only extends unemployment
3. that being said, there is one big giant silver lining to a 8-9%-ish unemployment rate come November 2012. I'll have to comfort myself with that.

Good for the Republicans.......Unemployment is tax payer money and is not a bottomless pit....This **** has been going on for 2 years.....Maybe some of these free loaders will get off their lazy ass and get a job now...............

Generally speaking, I think it can probably be proven that the longer the benefits last, the longer the beneficiaries take to find gainful employment. I would bet a dollar to a donut that if the teat went dry the unemployment percentages would drop.
I know that I was reading something a while back about how one country, I'm wanting to say Norway, cut unemployment extensions and people went back to work much faster than they did when they had years and years of unemployment benefits. I'll try to find that link.
One thing for sure, it's just human nature to try and ride the cash cow when/if you can. A poor guy working all week just to bring home 500.00 bucks probably wouldn't mind taking a two year vacation, making only 150.00 bucks a week less than he would make busting his ass. Got no link for that but it's just common sense to me. I don't need a link to tell me it's raining outside.
I'm all for helping out a man down on his luck. But this is just freakin' rediculous.
