    I seriously doubt that he has...... probably won't settle for any job below his old comptroller position.
    Burger King isn't hiring here. Applicants up the whazoo. Same goes for McDonalds.

    They wouldn't be able to feed their family on those wages let alone pay the bills. So if you has a choice between that an unemployment until you got a job that did, which choice would you make? I doubt you'd make the choice to be homeless out of principal.

    So someone says "go spend ONE DAY in the field than come testify"!!! ONE DAY!? Congress was simply brought in to the light exposing them to America for being the hideously ignorant, self-serving, megawealthy trash that has been the case for way too long. I salute Mr. Colbert for his courage to speak his voice. All he was proving beyond a doubt is "why is this STILL an issue?" He was laughing at them and succeeded in humiliating them all. Bless you brother Colbert, I wish it was me in that seat.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    It probably varies from State to State, but in Oregon you can earn 1/2 the amount of your unemployment before they take any money from your check...... then it's $1 for every $2 over that 1/2. If a person is getting Max unemployment that would be a large increase in take home pay.

    Must be a small town if those two are the only employers in the area.

    - IF YOU CROSS THE SAUDI ARABIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE JAILED.

    - IF YOU CROSS THE CHINESE BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU MAY NEVER BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.

    - IF YOU CROSS THE VENEZUELAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE BRANDED A SPY AND YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED.

    - IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL PRISON TO ROT.

    - IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET................................
    1 - A JOB,
    2 - A DRIVERS LICENSE,
    3 - SOCIAL SECURITY CARD,
    4 - WELFARE,
    5 - FOOD STAMPS,
    6 - CREDIT CARDS,
    7 - SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE,
    8 - FREE EDUCATION,

    10 - A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTON,
    11 - BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE,
    12 - THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH RESPECT.
    13 AND NOW AMNISTY

    I don't believe you can collect unemployment if you work in my state.

    Who said they were the only employers? The jobs just aren't here right now period. My business is down and I considered substitute teaching. Guess what? The local schools don't have a budget for substitutes that's how bad it is here.
