    It's quite straightforward, make 15 posts and then you can link. That rule saves the rest of us from being bombarded with trash from spambots. Works for us. If you don't like it, you are most welcome to fuck off.

    Hundreds of Thousands of Lower-Wage Workers, Many of Whom Worked for Decades, Would Be Denied Unemployment Insurance Under Provision Now Under Consideration — Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

    You know, this is news here, and pretty heinous at that.

    from the above link to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

    And it's fucking reprehensible.

    It will never pass. It is a sad state of affairs when people have to attack the poor. This should be brought to the forefront of news listing all those that have proposed this action and all those who support it. We as a people have to stop this sort of thing. These are people who because of what ever reason did not pursue their education and are paying for it with jobs that pay little. To penalize them any further would be criminal. I have stated over and over again that if you keep pushing people into a corner is very dangerous. I hope everyone out share my view on this matter.

    The food stamp program gave a lot of state bureaucracy (10%). Why are they not just transfering money into peoples accounts instead of food stamps? That will cut the bureaucracy and be a lot simpler.
