Well if there aren't enough jobs to go around, why NOT pay people not to work? Obviously Americans have more than enough food, look at our obesity rates, even among the poor. So if they're content to accept U.E. instead of a job, great! If they feel they can compete for one of the few available jobs and have a higher standard of living including HBO, then go for it!

But I have no problem giving people money not to work when there are no jobs and bankers are getting billions in bonuses for ruining the economy.

No, the lack of jobs is encouraging joblessness.

Well, hunger is a great motivator. Maybe we should give it a try?

I agree with the above poster that it is in fact the lack of jobs that is encouraging joblessness. Some people are lazy but unemployment will only last so long, even with 2 extensions and then you have nothing left. So it's not like they are getting money forever if that is what is worrying you. It's hard enough getting by on regular wages let alone unemployment. For those who are wealthy enough to complain about others receiving unemployment, just know that soon you will have everything stripped from you and I call that KARMA.

Whats the big deal if 20% of the countries workers are railroaded into minimum wage jobs and loose everything they have worked for their entire lives. Surely the guy who lost his 40k a year job can make it on 7$ an hour 30 hours a week.....so what if he looses his house...that wont effect your property values.... what makes you people think this wasnt planned to destroy the middle class and force EVERYONE into sustinance level existance....you think you wont be next? Is your job really one that someone else couldnt do?

Well, they extended the time through this year so you can collect the unemployment tiers. This won't help me since I''m running out of tier 4. They did this so they could gradually let people to fall off the unemployment rolls, which the stock market could rally on saying , look, the economy is getting better. What a snickey dirty trick.

No. 1*
Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
Jer 6:2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate [woman].
STOCK UP NOW. You should have at least 6 months worth of basics for every member of your household. Stay away from crowds when trouble starts, do not forget water storage, tobacco is worth more than gold or silver, and be kind to hungry children.

No because it isn't enough to really live on, it's desperation wages...
