    His name is Barack Hussein Obama. ( No Mohammad in Barack’s name) Hussein means “blessed one” in Hebrew. He is NOT a Muslim…he is a Christian.

    STOP THE HATEMONGERING and lies!! Your ignorance is appalling and disgusting.

    I’m sick of you right wing radicals thinking you have a right to legislate a woman’s reproductive system. IT’S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS! Mind your own and GET OUT OF MINE. Sarah Palin is a complete charlatan and corrupt as hell. I hope Alaska impeaches her and throws her out of office. You wingnuts are responsible for the dumbing-down of America. You are a sick and twisted bunch!

    They said the White House signaled it would accept an extension of unemployment benefits, but the speaker refused to allow the stimulus package to be broken up.

    Read for your self ..Nancy Pelosi didnt want to break the deal ..they were going to vote yes

    Instead of giving the unemployed an additional unemployment extension in a state that has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country California has decided to put some preventative measures in place for those hardest hit by this ailing economy. Go Figure?!!

    Sen McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, is part of the Senate group that blocked the Unem. Benefits Extension. He is in danger of losing his seat to Bruce Lunsford

    Lets write to the journalists who wrote the below articles and alert them to our hardships, that the economy is even worse and will not be able to create jobs for months. What happens to a million unemployed Americans with families? . Where do we live when we are evicted from our rented apartments or houses? Or lose our mortgages ? Why don’t our children need food, and medication? We don’t count as mainstream America? Aren’t we rich enough for him to count us?
    Will we live in our cars? Do we go dumpster diving?
    Are we just a bunch of whiners as Phil Gramm, McCain’s future Treasury Secretary called us just 3 weeks ago?
    Bush said no to unemployment benefits extensions for us and McConnell supports him?

    AND call Sen Mitch McConnell’s office phone:XXXXXXx and tell them we have contacted these papers and these journalists to alert them to our hardships.

    Below articles are about Bruce Lumsford and Sen. McConnell :

    Lou Dobbs does NOT support big government help to the less fortunate. That includes extended jobless benefits.

    Pelosi will SCREW us again!

    She wants to look like a Hero (more dem votes) But instead of helping the once woking middle class who really need help with an unemployment extension, she wants to give millions to public aid, food stamps, medicaid. I’ve had no health insurance for over a year, I know I won’t be able to get medcaid, may be able to get $30 a month in food stamps though………………….

    I am a single mother of 3 children ages 4 6 and 11, when I was drawing ue I recieved enough to pay rent, put gas in my car, pay utilities and buy the essentials, I applied for foodstamps, but bc my income was unemployment they count that as unearned income and I only recieved 80.00 a month to feed my family. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated it, but it wasn’t enough to feed my family of 4! Now that I don’t have any money coming in I get 643.00 a month! kinda crazy huh?!?!?!?
