    • On May 19, 2010, by PastorGuido - I am appalled at the way the government is abandoning Americans in dire need, yet spend our money helping the rest of the world. The leaders are well aware of what they are doing, and I believe they are purposely holding back from adding additional weeks of benefits to those that have exhausted their benefits, because they will "force" us into getting jobs. LISTEN CLOSELY CONGRESS!!! WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES ARE NOT LAB ANIMALS NOR FARM ANIMALS TO BE TREATED THIS WAY!

    • On March 12, 2010, by dartcanyon - CNN/HLN just had a piece on about people who are cheating on unemployment and that Sen. Byh, I think, opposes the passage of what the Senate just approved. There are cheaters in every system including the very people who run this country from Washington. Until each and every one of them is honest, straightforward and does NOTHING wrong then I don't want to hear a damn word about anyone else. The vast majority of the unemployed are honest people who look for work regularly and can prove that.
