    that unemployment is based on how much you earn?  Which would then dictate your ability to buy a home?  Regardless of who pays into unemployment, the person who makes more gets more in benefits.  That's just a fucking fact.

      Not you, The reframing:

      If someone bought a home and was laid off they should receive the same level of unemployment insurance as the person who didn't buy a home and was laid off.  I note that the person who didn't buy a home is likely poorer.  Why should the richer person receive more unemploment benefits than the poorer person?

        I can't even wrap my brain around the re-framing here.  Sorry.  I just feel a bit lost as a bleeding heart liberal around here some days.  Growth hurts.

        Don't mind me, I'm incoherent most days and it's frustrating.  I just don't get a lot of what's happening now and I'm pissed off as well.  Sorry for jumping down your throat.
