    60 Minutes was great, except for the missing plea for another tier. Was glad to see that the 22% in California was noted and that the College Educated were given a clear voice. Showing once again that we are not stupid or lazy.

    Also good to see alot of hands raised when they were asked if they had a masters degree. It shows that being educated is not the problem, its jobs, jobs and jobs. I believe it was good to show this just before the election.

    I was glad to see what they reported on that show also, mainly the part that emphasized these were highly educated people. The only thing that bothered me was the low-ball figure on how many people would be cut of from benefits coming up. I give a lot of credit to NELP for the work they have done and the fact that they are making a new campaign for jobs and benefits with their new and expanded Unemployed Workers site http://www.unemployedworkers.org/sites/unemployedworkers/index.php

    But I just wrote a note of complaint to one of their recent emails:

    Why perpetuate this misleading figure? Even CBS used it in their 60 Minutes report, in spite of the fact that their report was about the “99ers.” There will be almost SIX million who have exhausted benefits with no job by the end of this year. That figure is obvious from the DOL reports, yet both the media and NELP want to keep using the figure that’s based on the number who will be cut off only on Nov 30.

    This is the same circumstance as last year, only worse, and it led to most of the public being totally unaware of just how dire the situation is. That strategy was disastrous for those most desperate, those 99ers, and it will be again.

    I’m praying that Palin makes it. She is so stupid and unqualified that she will make Christine Odonnell look like a genius.

  • takinbackdtreets 10/24/2010 5:30pm

    Both repubs and dems are bought and paid for. Vote independent till we figure out how to take back our country.

    I have been reading articles of people who have voted independent for many centuries but now are switching to republican because they say that Congress is out of control taxing everyone to death in the middle class and lower class. I believe that if we do vote for republican we can forget about Tier 5 and creating new jobs. Anyway we look at this situation its not looking good at all.

    How ironic too, eh? Since all last year the middle and lower classes had a tax break directly on their paychecks, a tax break that the pundit class seems to be totally ignoring. That tax break saved me about $200 on my taxes, even contract work and unemployment benefits, since I had at least a small amount of earned income, combined with the “Making Work Pay” tax break. One of the parts of the stimulus package that seems to have been completely forgotten.

    no dont vote independent… we don’t need in between anymore which is what both dems and republicans do all the time… we need conservatives not liberals or republican in name only candidates… then we can take back our country at the polls.

    n0bama4me 10/25/2010 4:33am

    no voting independent is not change. example – charlie christ did it “jumped ship” thiking he was going to secure both crowds the dems and repubs, but he was wrong. what kind of person wants to be in between all the time, wishy, washy, can’t make up the mind – so they go independent? granted republicans and democrats are basically the same, but conservatives are not and that’s who we need to vote for – conservatives. go tea party!

    I’ve read the recent n0bama4me posts, and I’m failing to see where his/her posts differ from Sher1 posts. Some of the garbage Sher1 posts is full of lies (ie- political donations), insulting accusations (tea partiers upset when a BLACK man was elected Pres), and name calling (tea baggers).

    Sher1 shows up on this board to recruit people for union-sponsored websites and events and he posts messages that he copies and pastes from other liberal blogs. Where is the outrage over this behavior?

    For all those buying into the whole “Republicans buy elections” nonsense, check out this link that shows the top political donors, and the party they donated most to, from 1989-2010. Pay special attention to the TOP 14 donors, and which party they gave to the most.

    liberals like sher1 and flarlene are hypocrites. they make up their own rules and can do whatever /say whatever they want, but the minute someone smart comes along to point out that they are wrong – watch out because the name calling starts, trolling, and now as you can see with arlene the massive amount of hypocrisy just dripps from her postings.

    I just spent 2 hours reading all 219 pages. You were not in an argument with anybody when i did my first comment. You accused me of having multiple accounts and being a troll. You admitted having 84 accounts, YOU ARE THE TROLL HERE. I just started at OC early yesterday morning and yet i got accused of being on here for a year. You stated you’ve been unemployed for 3 years, the reason for this is because you can’t keep your trap shut and got fired. And now when you apply for jobs they talk to your last employer and he tells them that you have a very BIG mouth. I PRAY that you NEVER get a job, are you living with mommy and that is how you are able to irritate everyone here? Is the umbilical cord still attached? Did the doctor smack the wrong end to get you to cry? When you came out, your daddy said, “kill it”. You are a worthless human being that needs a good AZZ whoppin’.

    I have every right to defend myself, it is not called ranting and raving. nObama was doing the rant and rave thing and so were his followers. Don’t sit there and start getting mouthy with me.
