I inadvertantly saw the article displayed on CNBCs online site while reading some other stories from the day, second time around now. Hopefully the 600 comments on that site will lead to 1200 advocates and lead a much needed snowball affect awareness wise, which is our only ray of hope at this point. good job.

Oh MaryKay, you are fab! What a great devotion you have to us all. I'm sorry to be just adding my thanks so late but as you know I was away all day.

I saw mj33's post a few back with regards to comments. I think we should ALL go and add a comment to the story and boost MaryKay's effort even further.

Secondly I think it would be a very good idea to send our thanks to Reuters and the interviewer!

THANK YOU, MARYKAY!!!

MK,

That was a great interview. It really showed how the typical 99er is NOT lazy, that they are constantly hard at work trying to find a new job. That they want nothing better than to be working again, not wanting to have to depend on others, especially total strangers. 99ers were brought up to be hard-working, responsible, competant, self-reliant, and productive individuals. It's people like the 99ers, and their strong work ethic and indominable spirit, that helped make America great!

MaryKay wrote:thanks for the vote of confidence couth. I wanted more of what we did on the forum to be included, but at least it was about the 99ers and not just the unemployed as a whole, not that I am choosing sides, but we need some publicity.

As far as Congress goes, may I quote theWeeper of the House "HELL NO", I'd be in jail after 15 minutes with Eric Cantor or Paul Ryan. Smug is not my middle name and I find as I get older, I have very little time for the Do as I say not as I Do crowd. I have never hit anyone in my life, not kidding, not even when we were kids, I'd had to break my streak and I think I would in DC. Not that I think I could be elected. I am not an economist, lawyer or schooled in politics either and I think you do have to have that kind of experience, if we've learned nothing, it's that people like the Tea Party have no experience in dealing with the Country's problems because we are part of a large world and as the US goes so does the world, economically speaking. I don't have that experience and wouldn't feel right about voting for or against things that could have far reaching affects that could hurt us because I didn't have that knowledge. This deficit is a perfect example. We have some freshmen in Congress that think, so what, let is go, the rest of the Financial World is holding their breath. I don't know all the ramifications of defaulting, but know it wouldn't be good. But I can make everyone on this forum a promise, I will not give up this fight, even if we should not win, I will not stop until it is known by all just how many of us are being ignored. I was really scared this morning, now that it's over, I would do it again and again until we get some notice. Thanks for the support, but it's for all of us.

To be honest, I am not really sure how many of our elected officials possess any of those qualifications, except maybe the smugness and they all do seem to be able to do the "corporate giggle" - with guys its sort of an odd chortle, with the women its sort a betty rubble thing...meant to convey their superiority over the riff raff, of which I am one. I have only come to fisticuffs once in the 3rd grade, and I did not throw the first punch and I did not provoke it. The principal did have to be summoned to pull us apart, though. I still believe change can be bloodless, although, with the deaths of the jobless and the homeless, bloodlessness is now one-sided.

I used msnbc's comment section to thank them & Reuters and I let them know that a letter exists drafted by you & signed by job seekers across America, & included a link to the petition, the letter & this website.
If ever they doubted our work ethic and our ability to collaborate (they really should not ignore us- maybe that's why enforcing net neutrality is gaining popularity in govt.)....

I don't know exactly how many 99ers/jobless/homeless are out there, but I intend to reach as many as I possibly can. I can't afford to give up. I know that there is safety in numbers and among those numbers is a lot of talent, knowledge and resources. We have numbers, we just have to find them.
