    Default Dems to try again to extend unemployment benefits

    Dems to try again to extend unemployment benefits

    By JESSE J. HOLLAND, AP Labor Writer 2 hours, 8 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON - House Democrats came so close to a veto-proof margin for their proposal to give the unemployed an extra three months of benefits.

    Taking another shot on the same measure, the goal for Thursday was to pass it by just a majority, not the two-thirds it would take to overcome a presidential veto. The idea is to speed the bill to the White House.

    It's the least they could do, seeing as how they're sending all our frickin' jobs to Mexico, China and India! How the hell do they expect us to find a job that way? There are only so many openings for Wal Mart greeters and burger flippers out there. The way they're going, they are going to have to extend unemployment benefits to 5 years to give us a chance.

    I have no idea why "W" hates the American worker so much. I mean this joker destroyed our economy and won't lift a finger to help those very people he screwed over...I imagine in years to come when I look up BOZO in Webster's book it will say see "W"

    I've said it before. Let's just let Sarah Jane Moore and Squeeky Frohm out of jail on a day pass, and hand each of them a Garmin GPS. They'll know what to do!

    Yeah, they already rehearsed it once so give them another chance and I bet they will try harder?

    Just have to impress on them that we DON'T want Dick Cheney as president, not even for one day! They'll know what to do.
