    Are YOUR doors locked?

    Maybe....and then again maybe not. It may just as likely spark a small business revolution when people realize that they have to fend for themselves.

    Yep, my doors are locked and I am packing, fortunately I live in a growing community that is doing quite well mostly because people here accept personal responsibility. You and others have a problem answering direct questions, how long should the Federal Taxpayer fund unemployment insurance for individuals? Unemployment is a state issue yet the Federal Govt. is sending more and more federal tax dollars to the state to prop up the unemployment funds. Sorry but it is time for some tough love, over two years IMO is way too long.

    You live in a state with a 20 billion dollar budget "gap."

    What Clinton and Bush did was harmful as well, in fact they either started this mess, or contributed to it....

    You'll get no argument from me on that. Progressive policies are just as destructive whether they come from the right or left.

    This is not exactly rocket science or even political science. As long as it keeps snowing you keep shoveling. When there is no longer a need for the shovel, you pack it away until winter returns.

    Oh so am I correct in assuming that you just said indefinitely?

    Sounds like a great opportunity for someone to go to work shoveling snow. If I lived in a state and didn't like shoveling snow I would move to TX where people work and don't have to shovel snow.
