      unemployment since it has been extended 5 times already??  I am for extending unemployment insurance, but these same people have more to lose than gain if the deficit triples because that will not only mean less money coming in to the states, but social security, medicare will have to be cut which will effect these same unemployed down the road.

        People with money buy things. People without money steal things. It is as simple as that.

        We lose if we choose to forget; the lives of men, and money spent.
