Hello fellow unemployed. I used to blog in here but found a temp. job for awhile. Was wondering what other open congress unemployment sights are getting comments in lately, and trying to catch up on the latest.
Has Nancym written anywhere that any body knows? I had some questions to ask her about deciphering the jargon in reference to the Obama extension for the 2011 year.

COLORADO anyone have any tier four updates, I called to claim yesterday and CUB line said that I do not have any weeks available to claim, my understanding was that tier 4 was to be made payable the week ending 2-19, I spoke to someone else that should be getting tier 4 she said no funds have been added to her account.

Any info would be great, I am on hold to talk to someone now but they often do not answer for several hours.

Lees bill is headed to the floor but they are still gathering additional Co-Sponsors and they are working on the Repu blicans. There is some discussion that there are many Republicans who support this bill. BUT, they are AFFRAID TO GO AGAAINST the ENTIRE REPUBLICAN TEAM AS A WHOLE, each trying to decide who will be the first to show public support and when it would be best to do so, WITHOUT being looked at ‘bad’ by there fellow Republican piers!

“Both Houses need over 50% of either house to pass a bill on to the President. For an ordinary bill to pass each chamber or house of the US congress, it needs a simple majority of yea votes which would be 50% + 1 vote. In the US House of Representatives, ordinarily there are a total of 435 seated Representatives. 50% of 435 is 217.5. As there are no half votes, the fewest yea votes required for an ordinary bill to pass the House would normally be 218. In the US Senate, ordinarily there are a total of 100 seated Senators. 50% of 100 is 50. A simple majority is 50% + 1, thus the fewest yea votes required for an ordinary bill to pass the US Senate is 51.”

WE MUST REALLY CONSIDER THE FACT THAT CHINA and JAPAN WILL SOON BECOME THE SOLE ECONOMIC POWER IN THE NEXT DECADE MAKING US RELY ON THEM BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THE ONLY SOLUTION IS FOR THE USA TO ‘GROW SOME BALLS AND START REALLY –TAXING- CHINA REPEATEDLY- BEFORE IT IS TOO- TOO- TOO- LATE!!!,,,,,,,
,STOP ALLOWING ANYMORE ILLEGAL ENTRY INTO THE USA! Not even a ON A WORK VISA …ALL hurting Americans and 99ers must STOP BUYING ANYTHING MADE IN CHINA OR JAPAN

THE USA NEEDS TO TAX THE GOODS ENTERING THE USA FROM EVERY MANUFACTURER THAT LEFT THE USA AND IS NOW DOING BUSINESS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY!….USE THE TAX TO PAY FOR ADDITIONAL UNEMPLOYEMENT TIERS!

IF SOME OF THESE THINGS ARENT DONE –AT LEAST BUY US 99ers -THEN, don’t COMPLAIN WHEN ALL THAT I HAVE PREDICTED GETS seriously WORSE!
Maybe even BOY COTT ‘T-MOBILE CELLULAR’ because they moved their corporate office to the Philippines!……LETS TAKE SOME ACTION 99ERS!

As long as 10% of the people in the U.S. hold 70% of the wealth then we are doomed. Let’s put that in real numbers 10% equals 3 million 100 thousand people and that leaves 306 million and 900 thousand people to divide up the 30% of wealth in this country. Just another reason;=No wonder there are no jobs coming back ‘fast’= the money is tied up and does not flow through the country. We used to have taxes of 50% to 91% on wealthy BEFORE PRESIDENT BUSH’s NEW 10 YEAR TAX BREAK FOR THE RICH WAS PASSED and that kept money flowing through the economy because if it wasn’t invested they lost it to taxes. Now there is ………………..ABSOLUTELY NO INCENTIVE………… to invest THUS the money is hoarded and the country slowly comes to a halt. FURTHERMORE –

Finally, now that there is a recession in motion the only way we can stop it is; to invest BACK into the economy and also help the 99ers so they can contribute from their end…. by passing a TIER V, so that the FIRST people laid off (99ers) can get back on their feet and the money they receive will be immediately pumped back into the deficient /failing economy.
“Once these indicators remain constant and stable, confidence in the economy rises, thereby allowing businesses and consumers to shift priorities from extreme conservation to planning improvements such as RESIDENTIAL & CONSTRUCTION and, expansion and RESIDENTIAL investments based on anticipated income and expenses for immediate, long term and future goals. “…….. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY, SO PASS TIER V, NOW!

THESE 99ER PROFESSIONALS were the FIRST to be HIT BY THE RECESSION, and by the same RULE OF LAW OF MOTION will be THE LAST TO GO BACK TO WORK!..ALSO…it is a FACT THAT THE OLDER FOLKS were FIRST TO BE PICKED TO BE LAID OFF, FROM LARGER FIRMS, NOT SURE WHY THAT IS!!!…….BUT ILL BET IT HAS TO DO WITH THE ‘IDEA’ THAT OLDER WORKERS ARE LESS PHYSICALLY PRODUCTIVE AND COST COMPANIES MORE THAN YOUNGER EMPLOYEES.

EXPENSIVE LUXURY CARS SALESMEN were next because – high paid professionals who got laid off could not afford these expensive cars…LARGE MANUFACTURING COMPANIES CHOSE TO LEAVE THE USA AND OUTSOURCE OVER SEAS –WITH THE HELP OF foreign lobbies WHO pay politicans to benefit overseas and not the the Americans here the create policies such as Nafta to ship jobs overseas and so on and so on!
PRESIDENT BUSH IGNORED EVERYTHING GOING ON AND LEFT IT FOR OBAMA TO FIX……….
OBAMA CAME INTO OFFICE WITH VERY LITTLE CONCERN FOR THE ECONOMY HE CONCETRATED ON SHOWING OFF HIS NEW HEALTHCARE DEAL THAT HE HAD BEEN PREPARING FOR 7 YEARS PRIOR TO EVER COMING INTO OFFICE!…………..
A huge domino effect if you will,,,,,

2)
Banks all of a sudden had to many foreclosures thus stopped giving out anymore RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION LOANS-the only way any economy can GROW is for banks to have the ‘AVAILABLE’ cash to RE-INVEST!).
These LAID OFF 99ERS were professional people who work in luxury industries;, ARCHITECTS, DESIGNERS OF ALL AREAS, MORTGAGE LOAN OFFICERS, ADVERTISING & MARKETING AGENTS, MANUFACTURING DESIGNERS PROFESSIONAL –
THAT DEAL IN CONSTRUCTION MANUFACTURING SUCH AS WINDOWS DOORS ECT…..

1)
People need to really realize what caused the recession and why it is not going to just fix by itself!!!
They need to realize what the definition of a 99er really is:
With the exception of the COPY CAT 99ers (people taking advantage of the free money) and with the exception of any RECENT 99ers that exhausted 99 weeks AFTER MAY 2010 NOR ANY BODY THAT BECAME A 99er this YEAR 2011 ….
99ers are mostly a LARGE group of people that were chosen to be laid off ‘FIRST-back in 2008’ from SPECIALIZED TYPE POSITIONS in large prominent companies when and because of illegal RESIDENTIAL LENDING practices THE HOUSING MARKET CRUMBLED (hedge funds collapsed) …EFFECTING…. 69% of RESIDENTIAL builders (construction) and residential bankers WERE THE
FIRST LAID OFF!! –
