    LOL. NoGoodOnesLeft means many things. No good screen names left. No good politicians left. No good people left. Though for some reason the people I have met here (most of them anyway) seem to be more good than the people I have met in person lately.

    Yes, I know. I remember all that Jackie and Out Of Time stuff.

    Think about this.

    If this bill, or the other is passed as it is written now, all those unemployed people in all those other states will be watching it announced on their TV and in their news papers, and not understanding the requirements of the bill will think they finally got some help, only to be told by their labor departments that it was not for their state, only for others. What will that do to all those already extremely stressed out people.

    LOL. Funny sidebar. Only one person has voted against this bill but if you look at the User’s Tracking (also upports, etc.)
    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h3548/show#users_tracking
    that person supported 3404 and 6867. Maybe someone hit the wrong button by mistake.

    Nacy,

    Your honest opinion if the bill is passed and everything do you think most of the big states will see the whole 13 weeks like ny and such

  • Comm_reply
    nancym 09/12/2009 9:28am

    Yes.

    P.S. Do we know of ANY state for which the unemployment rate is actually getting BETTER? Or is expected to in the very near future?

  • Comm_reply
    NoGoodOnesLeft 09/12/2009 9:35am

    Well, sioce I was looking at NY for JM this morning, they went down 0.1 last month. But, remember, the national rate went down 0.1 last month and then jumped up 0.3 this month. I think it is all a “government trying to make things look better” game anyway. I know people who have been more unemployed than employed for years and they don’t get unemployment benefits and they probably aren’t counted in the numbers.

    oh didnt realize that..

    so nys might be close to 8.9 around there

    but not below 8.5

    also say we get the 13 weeks and i claim 4 weeks and the trigger is below 8.5 in nys i will get 3 weeks and thats it for a total of 7 week but after that its over no more..thats if the bill is like that

    JMatzelle57—

    I believe you’re new here, so let me point out a couple of tech things:

    1) If a post is confusing about to whom it is directed, just click on the “oldest first” button at the top of the page to see the “threaded” conversations and the indented replies.

    2) Only use the Reply button if you are replying directly to a particular post, otherwise for a new or general comment, scroll down to the bottom of the page and use that empty “Speak Your Mind” comment box to post your comment.

    3) Sometimes it can get confusing with a lot of comments posted by everyone in a short time and as you post the “newest” can switch to “oldest” order and you need to check to see which order you are viewing.

  • Comm_reply
    nancym 09/12/2009 9:49am

    4) Be patient when posting, sometimes it can take several seconds for your post to show up, so you don’t have to click the post button more than once, or you’ll have duplicate posts. (Exception: If your long-winded like me, some posts will be blocked if over 1000 characters, so you have to shorten or split the comment.)

    I recommend “newest first” when things are moving quickly and you don’t want to miss anyone’s posts, but “oldest first” is best to sort out who is talking to whom about what.

    It certainly might help break the tension with a laugh! But then this site can be slow enough as it is sometimes, animation can make it worse.
