Okay, Im grateful for the good news and all but something just occured to mewith the lack of news today. For the 3rd time, these lackluster idiots have postponed and reschedualed doing thier job until the last possible minute, now they leave for 2 weeks after today......THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! People are hurting and all the theatrics and procrastination just prove that we are at the mercy of a bunch of spaceheads with little to no empathy for their own constituents. To say if there is no progress today thatI will be pissed would be the biggest understatement iv'e made my entire life. This is %*%^&%(^%^%^*% pethetic!!!!

I really try to understand the pathos, I know there are people out there are living in a bubble and don't get just how severe the problem is. ( 99 weeks is too long!!! They are lazy!!!! etc..) but to do this when gas and food is increasing, corportate profits are at an all time high and there are people with MASTERS degrees living on the street. I seriously hope karma comes around and turns the whole state of Washinton upside down cause this is pure, unadulturated genocide....and yeah, im slowly but surely getting the concept that them dumbing Americans down has worked, we are Sheeple, being herded to slaughter.

If this is true that the on vacation for two weeks now then I will not be able to have internet nor an apartment, because I get evicted at the end of this month if I can"t pay my rent. So I hope these idiots go to hell soon so that I can meet them there.

I think we need some underground group to show the politicians how not to thread us.

Yeah, once again another vacation. We need to find a lawmaker to bring a bill up about limited vacations for congress. Is this a vacation or time to go back to their districs?

Plus, Who says we were pacified? I don't feel like 99'ers were pacified at all. I mean o.k. so they had a meeting...but that didn't get us anyplace so far did it? I feel PISSED OFF not Pacified.

During these two week breaks, there may be some negotiating going on. Many Reps and Senators do not leave Washington. This could actually be to our advantage as Congress is not in session and gives our leaders an opportunity to meet on a more frequent basis.

I know everyone thinks it is a "vacation", but it is not. It is a "District Work Session". When they do travel to their home states, they make themselves available to their constituents in their home offices or having different functions in their districts. Does anyone remember what happened to Rep. Giffords in January? This was a on a day that she went out to meet the people in her district. Your Congressmen do that also. Make it a point to find out when and where you can meet with them to share your concerns.

Sorry about the vent, but I am not giving up. Positive things have happened this week that I never thought would come about.

I have no other choice than giving up or do you think when I tell my landlord: Sorry, but the Government is on "vacation", he will let me stay as long they made a final decision? Since I don't have any family left I see me either on the streets or in a shelter if they have still a place for me, but I doubt this. They are full and overcrowded these days.

Unfortunately it already IS too late for many. Even if this bill does pass it wont help the people that have committed suicide OR their families. It wont help those that are already homeless either. It wont take away the scars left behind. We will be recovering from this for the rest of our lives even after we find gainful employment.

It will help some of us, but we still have a HUGE problem even if it does pass. What about after the 14 weeks? what about job creation? We have to ( I know I am) continue to fight for these things.

On the bright side, and this is what makes me keep going, IF this passes, we are helping those who have no idea what they are in for once they reach 99 weeks. We will be helping millions of people by advocating for this. I would not wish this awful existence on my worst enemy.

Keep advocating and keep fighting for those who do not yet walk in our shoes.

I can only hope that Congress Man David Dreier is home in my dist. because I have printed up (wasted the last $28 to my name to do so) every copy of jobs I have applied to over 550 along with copys of all the regection letters and printed off emails saying...thanks but no thanks. Along with my resume and copys of all job hunting sites and copys of all the job fair registrations I have gone to and I am going to give them to him.

I am going to ask if this looks like a lazy person sitting there collecting a check. I am going to also Photo copy my degrees, and I have framed the last regection letter I received from McDonlands where I applied for a entry level job and states that while I was qualified, they decided to go with somebody that was bi-lingual and had a more current work history.

I am willing to work a crappy azz job like they say we will not accept and they don't even want us.

They told me not to hire me because they aren't sure if I am going to stay there. As soon I find a better job offer I will quit. That were the words from the manager there.

I really don't think that pacifying the 99ers had anything to do with it. Boehner makes the schedule and he has them only working 2 weeks out of every month.


Historically they have these breaks that frustrate us so much so they can get back and stay in touch with the needs of their constituents. It isn't really supposed to be a vacation. I think most of them just play golf though.
