Thanks MaryKay! I hope it reaches at least one of the nay sayers in congress. I am still new at this, so its not perfect by any means lol I am sure I will edit to add things as the days go on.

If anyone sees any corrections that need to be made or wants to add something please let me know, I will do my best to accommodate.

Make sure you add a comment to the post. We've been sending this blog post to congress and it would be a good opportunity to put your thoughts down in case one of them reads it. I would like to try and compile as many comments on the blog as possible, so they hear from as many of us as possible.

Edit

"People are dying. Your constituents are dying and you are playing bi-partisan politics and destroying people over money and greed. It's a shame and a disgrace that we have become a nation that has sold out for corporations/globalization.

People do see what is being done and we are also aware if you will let one person die on the streets that has worked their whole life out of decency and respect than you will let anyone and everyone die, all in the name of evil and a larger profit margin for your masters and yourself. There should not be a question or a complaint from any side when things are this bad. There needs to be two extentions given (HR589 and another tier)at the same time there is something done to penalize corps for outsourcing, and bring the jobs that got you all paid, by selling out your own country for your international owners back. It's sad to think what you have in store for the decent hard working people of this nation, but I will say if there is a grain of humanithy left in either side Washington you would make the people that put you in office a priority instead of the deficit, wars, oil, medicare, and Mr. Weiner.

GOP, making Obama a one term president is not a higher priority than life. Dems being an enabler for the GOP under the guise of making him a one term president is sad. Stop the political theatrics and help the American people (it's badly acted out anyway). Thank you."

On the blog, you have your choice of how you want to comment. It automatically tried to link my comment to my Google account and I had to change it in the drop down box to "anonymous".

Sorry about that, I will check the comment settings and see if its something that i did or didnt do lol. People have been commenting using the "anonymous" option which doesn't require you to log in. Maybe they were having issues too and that is why.

I don't know about others on this site, but I'm tired of calling, tweeting, emailing, faxing, and writing congress. They are just ignoring us. We need the 99er's in Michigan to go camp out on CAMPS doorstep and demand answers. We need people in Washington DC to do the same. If I could afford to travel to either place I would do it.

Why can't we do it locally - same day - same time - across the country!

That is why Twitter is such a great tool. Protests like this can be organized and synchronized by tweeting!

This video is nothing short of great, excellent job and piece for our cause. Please make sure if not already, is pasted onto the multiple 99'er sites that exist on facebook. 99ers net, etc...

One small point, I do think we need to get a more clear and concise number as to the amount of exhaustees, that 3-8 million figure is unnaceptable and not going to work. I understand it changes per quarter, and thousands across each state quarterly and even monthly change plus and minus, but in a way the repubs, Tea party members, rand school objectivists can use this in their own way to showcase the ambiguity that exists out there with such wide range, almost sounds speculative, just my 2 cents worth. ARe the state dptmt's not relaying the info. to the regional DOL's or are the DOL's not requiring and keeping detailed/accurate records each quarter (every 3 months), on each states UI exhaustees. Friends, this is unnaceptable for us, either they don't care and we need to do better.

Again, Great video!!!!

saw it on one fb site already, great. And, I think we need this posted on major newspaper in California or better yet in their main homepage of unemployment insurance agency site, lol, or somehow easily available for them to see, and of course Bobby Scott's state of Virginia.

Or better yet, at each cities courhouse square on the huge flat screens they have which often times show certain games/events.

You can add a comment to the blog. The link to the video has been added and it is being tweeted to Congress and the media, and being shared on their Facebook pages.

They are listening - The Crew of 42 has picked it up!

Speaking of crewof42, I HOPE, REPEAT HOPE, Lauren Burke includes some update/information or perhaps article within next couple days on todays McKinsey Economic Group committee that was just held today on CSpan, it focused primarily on a report with statitstics and possible solutions focused on the unemployed as it relates to our economic recession. Finally, after two years, we have someone doing more than just talk, some action being taken, and some even on todays panel are part of the newly formed subcomittee for job re-training and interacting with educational instittutions.

I just would like to mention that none of the current panelists are any current type of existing legislative body working directly with DC, which also is good, none are/were 100% speaking only from their direct biased beliefs, this group's employees is built mostly on economic principles and objective research data to be applied into the workforce sector and labor economics.
