And once they get on PERMANENT SSI disability , they will stop looking for a job and the jobless rate will go down.

They’re in for a wait. I filed nearly 2 years ago with a legit diagnosed/docs, all on the up and up lifetime medical condition that finally caught up to me. (Chrons Disease and complications from it) and WITH a lawyer I’m still fighting with the Govt.

Then again, I’m a legal, non-minority hetrosexual male. So that probably explains it.

I tried to call Rush at the beginning of Michael's call. I had just helped a relative with this very problem. Well, I say helped, but he's mostly sol. Fortunately, we're able to help.

Ky's explanation is very clear (and a little different than Rush's explanation):

"In order to pay out federal benefits, states must continue to meet eligibility criteria, which are tied to the state’s unemployment rate. Because Kentucky’s unemployment rate recently dropped below the federal minimum qualification level, unemployed Kentuckians will no longer be able to receive Extended Benefits, or EB. This program previously lasted for 20 weeks, from weeks 80-99 of the possible 99 weeks of benefits."

Rush is right, the GOP should clamor for proper recalculation of the unemployment rate. This is a hell of a wedge issue, given Michael and his like are likely to blame the incumbent!

You need a new lawyer, one who will produce your affadavit swearing that you are a dyed-in-the-wool Obama voter,that you love him with your whole heart, that he is the god of your life.

You’d have your disability bennies by now.

“Illinois is approaching bankruptcy”

LOL ! Illinois is bankrupt. Moreover, our lovely governor is bankrupt in soul, bankrupt in mind, bankrupt in every conceivable dimension.

MUST READ ... what filthy, rotten, evil vermin.

Because while everybody’s talking about Romney and gay marriage and all this, the Democrats are already trying to blame the end of unemployment extensions on the Republicans because this was part of the debt ceiling deal last August. Now, this is a Democrat deal, but they’re gonna blame the Republicans for it. And it wouldn’t be happening if there was an honest unemployment rate being reported!

*snip*

RUSH: According to CNNMoney.com: “By the beginning of September, the [unemployment] benefits will disappear in another seven states, leaving Alaska as the sole” state to offer extended unemployment benefits.

So what this means is that, by September, no state will have extended unemployment benefits. That’s happening in an election year. It is going to be incumbent on Romney and the Republicans to explain why this is happening. What timing is this? I’m glad that guy from Illinois called us, because this is major.

Every state, by the time we get to September (except Alaska), will lose its extended unemployment benefits. Meaning nobody beyond 79 weeks. All of those between 79 and 99 get zapped.

And the Republicans are gonna get blamed for it, and it’s gonna be up to Romney and the Republicans to explain why this is happening, who did it, and what’s behind it. And you know what Obama knows? Obama knows: How can the Republicans come out and say, “Well, unemployment rate isn’t really 8.1%. It should be much higher”?

Most people find work these days through the Internet or word-of-mouth from friends/relatives/co-religionists/former co-workers/networking. Here are some good sites:

It’s fed money that’s being cut. Most states’ insurance typically pay 6 months.

Big deal. Since Obama is never blamed for anything, he will just come out on Monday and blame the Republican Congress.

Obama, the Flubber President. Bad things slide off a Teflon President. Bad things accelerate in the opposite direction off a Flubber President. Obama can do no wrong.

I watched an old show the other day. Its motto was "Evil consumes itself."
Obama will consume himself, and tell others of his coming fall, and we will watch.
Many are getting wise of Obama's deceit. It will not last.
