    Applying for welfare and other assistance is now considered a "job". Great!

    Soon they'll give degrees with the checks!

    Um.....what? Obama is lost on this one. He should know when there simply isn't a logical explanation for something and not even try. How is extending unemployment going to create jobs exactly? Or, for a micro second, why don't we assume the above inanity is true. Wouldn't be even better to add even more jobs by also passing the pipeline?

    This one is pretty transparent that nearly anyone should be able to see what's going on here. Obama knows, because said environmentalists are on record as saying so, that he'll lose votes if he votes for the pipeline. The ONLY logical reason, albeit logical from a purely selfish self preservation aspect, to oppose the pipeline is if it betters his chances of getting re-elected. He could choose to serve the interests of the country or his own self interest, and don't say but the environment, that issue was cleared up long ago. He chose the later.

    How does one "sit on their ass" and still pay payroll taxes? You must be thinking of Boehner and the House Republicans! :lol::lol::lol:

    Since it was too hard for you to figure out -I was referring to the unemployment benefits.

    Carry on, dipshit.

    People who collect unemployment are WORKERS. It's revealing how you hold them in contempt. If anyone's a "dipshit", it's those who fall for the "class warfare" charge the Republicans like to throw around. They're the ones waging it and their minions come to the boards to trash people who are down on their luck?!?! :asshole:

    Here is a fact you people may not be thinking of.

    The unemployment checks get spent in the local economy.

    They keep people from losing their homes and causing more economic disaster for the country.

    You keep proving how pathetically dependent you liberals are on government. What do you think will happen if with the welfare checks stop? Every welfare recipent is just going to sit there and go 'well I guess that's it. Might as well just sit here and die now.'? No. Necessity is the mother of invention. When it gets to the point that you really have to do something different to survive, most people will. Continuing to pay people to not work is called enabling, not helping. Also, the notion that welfare money get's put into the economy is true. That is not job creation however. You aren't injecting MORE income into the economy to spur job growth. You're simply sustaining what's already there. Consutruction of the pipeline creates real jobs. Jobs that did not exist before. As I asked above why not just do both?

    Obama will give the unemployed a fancy title like when New York turned the garbage men into "Sanitation Engineers".

    Obama will call the people sucking the unemployment & food stamp tit "Job Creators".
