    You are laid off...making pretty good money.  You file for unemployment.  

    The ESC doesn't ask you to look for a job that pays less than what you made when you were laid off.  Lately, they don't even ask you to provide proof that you even looked for a job.

    It's just months of unemployment without any kind of requirement, actually.  So...a job comes along that pays less than you were making after working for many years at your previous job.  Nope...ain't gonna take it...but, of course, there's no other jobs available and most certainly won't be any jobs paying what you were paid after many years of progression in your previous job.

    Yeah...I'm making sense of that...for sure.  So, what's gonna happen when all these unemployment benefits...extended unemployment benefits run out?  It's coming to a head, we all know it, unless there's some kind of sudden employment boom in America.  And, so, whatcha think the chance of THAT is?

    Let's think about what we're "benefiting" to everyone, all.

    - If you don't like gay marriage, blame straight people. They're the ones who keep having gay babies.
