You realize this is already a program? Anyone that meets eligibility for SNAP is eligible to receive a phone. The number of minutes per month is very limited, I have had extremely thankful individuals use these to get jobs after I issue them benefits. These phones have very literally saved lives. But yeah, go fuck yourself basically.

So the argument is now that we need to keep Obama out of office to prevent him from creating a program that started in the 1930s? Are you implying that if we vote for Obama then we'll get time travel?

I don't think the critics of that program realize that's where their phone goes once they toss it in the "used phone bin" at Best Buy.

I hope he loses his job and gets mugged.

For what it's worth (ignoring that it's a Slate article)...The BLS Just Discovered Almost 400,000 Missing Jobs in Its Rebenchmarking

Quote:
Note that the benchmarking added a net of 386,000 jobs. In gross terms it actually subtracted 67,000 government jobs so the rebalancing of the American economy away from government employment and toward the private sector has actually gone somewhat further than we realized. Note that this also means that the Obama Era has crossed the symbolically important zero line. More Americans are employed today than were when he took office.

It would seem that the economy is growing while government is shrinking. How 'bout that.

Once upon a time a terrible thing happened to the company I was working for. They lost the lease on their huge building because their rent was going up, and the only replacement in town within their monthly budget was a great deal smaller. When they discovered they were going to have to consolidate a bit and start downsizing, they began planning to merge departments. My department was merged with another department, and they combined management staffs. Since I was not cross trained with the other department, but their supervisors and managers were cross trained with mine, my department's management staff was the first to feel the axe. I was abruptly laid off, through no real fault of my own.

I was unemployed for five months. My then fiance, now husband, was a graduate student getting paid peanuts and could not support us both on his salary alone. Unemployment insurance meant 1. We were not evicted from our apartment and 2. We didn't starve. It amounted to about $800 a month after I paid income taxes on it (yes, you may have to pay income taxes on your unemployment insurance, if your total income including it might tip you over the income taxable amount. I figured it was better to get it out of the way.)

I eventually found another job, but I had the luxury of the safety net catching me.

Cross training would have been two weeks in another state. They said no when I asked about it.

Edit: Hubby was a PhD student in the middle of his dissertation at the time. Not exactly conducive to working as anything more than what he was doing already, being a research assistant. As it was, he wasn't taking out any student loans because he's insane like that, and so he lived like a pauper and actually managed to have enough money for a down payment on a house saved up after he was done. If he was in charge of the US budget, the dept of education and dept of defense budgets would probably be swapped, though.

As for "more than a couple days between jobs" we're not talking about flipping burgers here or hawking clothes at Belks. Any old job is not the same as the career oriented, full time with salary position I had before, and which I finally landed again five months later.

That's a seriously snobby statement. Any old job can take you up a ladder to a salaried position if you're so inclined to climb it. Even them ignorant disdainful hard working burger-flipping, clothes hawking, associate degreed middle-americans may be career oriented ambitious individuals.

That's right a job is a job. So tell me what did you do those 6 months besides sitting on your fat ***? Some of us would rather work at mcdonalds flipping burgers rather take a govn handout. You and your husband used the system like so many other leeches. And now you actually think taxing the wealthy along with the middle class is a way to afford others the opportunity you had. The soimple fact is if you taxed the wealthy 100% of their wealth we have would be able to survive one maybe two months before going bankrupt. It's your attitude that if times get hard it's ok to take govn handouts. So yeah I'm asking people to take responsibility for themselves and family. If you two couldn't survive your husband should have quit school and got a job until he could.

This country is lost. Literally at least half the population think they are entitled to others property. This is obama phone lady is a microcosm of the festering disease that is liberalism.


ITT: Unemployment insurance that companies pay into as part of payroll taxes is a government handout when it is dispersed back to the citizens for whom it is collected.

As for what I did for five months, besides submit around 200-300 job applications, edit the crap out of my resume daily, and start studying for the GRE because it was clear my BA wasn't going to be enough? I played video games. I freely admit it. Cheap entertainment.

seems to me like Crazy Legs is confusing a job, with a job that allows one to live.

I can tell you right now a part time job at MCD's is not going pay enough to raise a family, let alone buy a house, buy a car, put food on the table every night, have required amenities such as phone and internet. It doesn't work.

A job is not a job.
