    Hey, I figure stimulus is what cost my job, so I am grabbing the gravy while I can

    I am taking classes while on unemployment, and the classes are paid for by stimulus. Unemployment while going to school used to be illegal, now it is a benefit.

    Pubs are hypocrites, nothing new to see here. I thought Jindal started the trend last year?

    So, when the Repugs lie, you have no problem with it right?

    I doubt you lost your job because of the stim, but nice attempt at laying blame anywhere else but where it belongs.

    As long as the government is going to spend my tax dollars and much more, why shouldn't i try to actually get something back in return?

    It is taken from me, so I might as well get some of it back. It was mine to begin with, anyway.

    Really now? And how much additional taxes are you paying to supplement the stimulus that you are benefitting from?

    I'm not benefiting from it at all, but if i were in position to, i absolutely would.

    It would be like if i got robbed and the cops caught the guy after the fact, but he'd already sold a bunch of my stuff. I'm definitely against being robbed, but if the opportunity comes to where i can get some of my stuff back, then why not? :)
