Jaw-dropping Assholery

Tom DeLay on those unemployed folks:
"In fact there are some studies that have been done that show people stay on unemployment compensation and they don't look for a job until two or three weeks before they know the benefits are going to run out," he argued.

"People are unemployed because they want to be? " asked Crowley.

"Well, it is the truth. And people in the real world know it," said DeLay.

The real world according to Tom DeLay has only old white men in it.

And that's not even counting the slackers comin' home from Iraq and Afghanistan ('specially the 125k or so committing suicide, and why waste your GI bill money on buying a home when, without charge, you can get a deluxe double door refrigerator box that be placed in any alley or any vent blowing out a little warm air?) with shattered bodies and minds damaged from repetitive bombing, large artillery, sittin' their asses on 'allegedly' radiation depleted ammo (doesn't some types of radioactive isotopes have like a ten thousand year half-life? Just who determines this ammo is 'depleted' while cases for rectal, testicle, and other lower organs cancers are steadily on the rise?). Real slackers, just like the Max Cleland who was labelled unpatriotic by skanks like Ann…no… I can't even write the nasty bitches name, after losing three limbs in Vietnam. And now, to insure they catch every slacker they are hiring teams of doctors to reexamine 19,000 case of Gulf War Syndrome, and I know how that goes. For years my doctors told the VA I was 100% disabled, then some out-of-town doctor(I called him their 'hit doctor') who would conduct a five minute review of my file and say, "No he's not." It wasn't until I suffered a complete mental breakdown in 2002 that they change my ratings to 100%,. Only took ten years. Slackers, all slackers, mostly democratic slackers 'cause your average republican has other priorities then going to war and fighting for this country. (I remember someone poling Young Republicans and finding almost NONE willing to sign up for Iraq or Iran.) So, Tom Delay, I gothca yer slacker right here.

Ahh, yes, the 'real world' where there are 30 million unemployed folks and the Department of Labor says "This page will help you locate alternative sites where you can search for jobs or prospective employees.

America's Job Bank ended operations on July 1, 2007"

Notice the date.

love to see this discussion! It’s great to see you all working through the issues and also, it’s great to see recommendations for testing. In the end, it’s what your actual users do and prefer that should be your biggest driver in making these decisions.

Right now every unemployed American, a very considerable number, along with all those without health care should take a couple of day to write, email, call, or visit the office of their congressman and senator and tell them in no uncertain terms that they will not only NOT receive their vote, but that they will vote for anybody but an incumbent that feels he only has the right to occupy that office. GET RID OF ALL INCUMBENTS AND SOLVE MANY, MANY OF OUR PROBLEMS IN A SINGL ELECTION. Petition your government for redress, as is your right, and make it clear that it is directly against the interest of the country to expend trillion in wasted wars while ANY American citizen suffers unemployment and ill health.
