    no 99ers and no one else on Unemployment -- go for it -- tell me what your solution is.  I'm getting tired of the use of the 99ers to forget about all the unemployed.

      using some of the unemployed as pawns in a political game designed to further enrich the wealthy.

      And I'm getting tired of a POTUS who can't even be bothered to let "99ers" slip past his lips, let alone offer assistance.

      And I'm getting tired of folks who seem to forget that the number of 99ers more than doubles the number of unemployed that would be helped with this piece of shit sell-out.

        I'm asking for folks to offer their solutions.  And I'm asking as someone who has been unemployed for over 2 years and has no UI benefits.

        •  Folks have been offering solutions time and again (0+ / 0-)

          And there's no doubt in my mind that if more were offered, those solutions would be shit on just like the rest... for the sake of continued defense of the indefensible.

          •  What solutions are they (0+ / 0-)

            which do not include having to play chicken with UI benefits?

            •  We're going to play chicken. (0+ / 0-)

              That's politics. A high-level negotiation involves playing chicken.

              That's simply reality -- and if you pull back every-time someone starts that game, you've failed.

              Your enemies do, in fact, need to fear you. That's a political universal.
