    Who knew that a one year extension in unemployment benefits in exchange for the permanent destruction of jobs paying above minimum wage (saving that one for another day) could get Democrats screeching, "Take the deal."  Ah, but that wasn't quite how the deal was presented was it?  We're told that it was UI benefit extension for thirteen months in exchange for an income tax cut extension for two years.  But that isn't the deal.  It's UI extension in exchange for tax cut extension, inheritance tax reduction, and a spanner into the structure of Social Security.  

    The GOP may be evil but they couldn't do their work without those like you, Obama, etc. that so easily toss "the people" under the bus they willfully refuse to see barreling down the road.

    Bring Our JOBS and Troops Home NOW!

      and the rest of you pompous jerks that think you really know what's best for the poor.  

      They don't give two fucks about a party in power.  They live in fear and the current fear is that people are playing politics with their dinner and ability to stay in a home.  

      I'll say it to you and any other person who thinks their principles get any play in South Minneapolis, it doesn't.

      People can't find jobs and the jobs they are looking for aren't provided by individual millionaires.  They are looking to sweep and mop and serve fries to get their kids shit gifts for Christmas.  

      Come kick your bullshit at my office and you'll see how little they give a shit about, your principles.

      screw you.

      The poor thank me for my service asshole.  You don't know shit about my life and who I serve.  

      If you did you would not have said shit to me.  Jerk
