You REALLY have it all wrong, but I understand your feelings. You aren’t dragging the economy down, but what about the guys who game the system? They ARE. People plan to get unemployment. The more it’s expanded, the more some people will game it. To pay you, how many jerks do tax payers have to bribe at the same time?

No question there are. There was one of the 30 or so who were laid off in my place who were happy about it. I have a friend in a union who has a down season every year and collects for weeks in the summer time. No doubt there are plenty who are fraudulently collecting and making no effort. If it bothers you that much, drop a dime. Call your local office and they will open an investigation. People are required to demonstrate effort in getting back to work. Now, it's a completely ridiculous burden of proof, but other than that, I don't know the course of action to suggest to you.
What I do know is my own experience and I see way too much misinformation and ridiculous assumptions from people here and I am shocked by it. I use this site as a resource for all news topics because I trust that I will read honest, informed discussion that is censored out from the regular news media. I will continue to do so, but I can tell you from my experience in this thread, there are a lot of hollering, unaware people are here as well.
