  •  I truly feel for all the long-term unemployed, (0+ / 0-)

    because on Monday of this week, I stopped being one of them.

    My last day at work was June 18, 2009.

    Yes. 2009.

    I was unemployed for 54 months. That's 4.5 years in people years. During which my lovely family has kept me afloat, saving my home of 30 years and me from the streets. They have my undying gratitude.

    So when I say FUCK THE REPUBLICANS, we need to help these poor damned American Families when they are down so far that they can't even fucking remember what good luck looks like?

    I mean it.

    If every soul in this nation who thinks of themselves as Liberal and Progressive brought just two new voters to the polls this November, then come January 2015 the Congress of these United States would be looking one pretty shade of cerulean and that Congress would be sending Bills to the desk of the man who's shoes rest beneath the Resolute Desk for signature into LAW, at the speed of #OnceAndFutureSpeaker Nancy Pelosi's big, bad Gavel!

    Get off your asses and spread the word to every person you know who still is unemployed or has a family member who is still unemployed or has a friend who is still unemployed. Because you know, one of them probably still is.

    Tell those people to get on the phones and call the local offices of their US House and Senate members and DEMAND they help our brothers and sisters who are facing actual doom when it comes time to pay the mortgage or rent at the end of this month.

    Tell them to #RememberInNOV just which Party it is that just doesn't give a shit about the working people in this country anymore - and to VOTE accordingly!
