    I've been underemployed for a couple years now. It's depressing. It's one step above unemployment and pretty damn close to slave labor. We cannot just give the Conservatives a stick in which to beat us over the head with any longer. We need to turn things around and not extend and extend some more so they can twist our arms on some other crap. We need to make a stand and we will take some damage for it. But leaving things as they are and trying to work with these good for nothing conservatives is getting us nowhere. We need to change the game!

    These nutjobs in Congress are going to try to use the unemployed as a wedge to get what they want and we are all going to suffer for it. We need to make some noise and demand they deal with extending the benefits as a separate issue instead of giving something away with it.
