Sen. Jim Bunning Is A Heartless Bastard

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/02/27/unemployment-benefits-expire-sunday-senate-stalemates-extension/

Sen. Jim Bunning is pissing and moaning about how to pay for extended unemployment benefits, yet he voted for passing Medicare D without a way to pay for it:

This Baseball Hall of Famer’s action on this issue is putting over a million people in danger of joining the list of homeless people in this country, and it seems that he doesn’t care:

We thank GOP Sen. Jim Bunning of Kentucky for providing irrefutable proof, if we still need it, that our Congress is broken. Bunning single-handedly held up a 30-day extension of unemployment and health benefits to millions of Americans because…well, it’s not clear why. He even complained he had to miss a basketball game to do it. Then he nailed his reputation by responding to one last plea about the plight of the unemployed with, “Tough shit.” What a guy. What a system.

“I’m trying to make a point to the people of the United States,” said Bunning.

Throw in the fact that this comes at a time of the month when rent or the mortgage payment is due for these people (and the fact that these people are trying their hardest just to survive this mess) he swore to protect when swore to uphold the Constitution upon entering office.

If this heartless bastard keeps blocking this measure, my wife and I will soon be joining the ranks of people living in the tent cities erected all over this country.  His actions, and other’s actions from both parties have created this situation of economic decay, and is now going to be responsible for these people when they start dying in the streets (which is happening right now as we speak, but of course the media will not tell us this ugly fact).  If we are forced into living in the streets, we will do everything in our power to set up a tent in front of his main office in Ft. Wright, KY.

This Senator and his other political buddies from both parties have paid out billions of dollars to help people of other countries, Haiti for an example, yet do not a damn thing for the citizens of the United States of America.

Sen. Jim Bunning, you will rot in hell for your actions upon this earth, but don’t worry, you’ll have many of your other political, bank and corporate buddies joining you for the weeny roasting you all deserve.

p.s. Why is all of your voicemail inboxes full at every office you have?

    Here’s a comment that sums up the employment situation we’re in:

    From the comments on this article – http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/02/28/jobless-benefits-end-likely-couple-days/

    -I cannot believe what I am reading with comments such as, “We should stop paying unemployment benefits so these people will gets off their duffs and get a job”. Can you people really be so ignorant??? WAKE UP!!! Where I live in Atlanta, in my profession (architecture) the unemployment rate is 62%!!! It is similar throughout the nation because commercial and even institutional construction is at a standstill. Banks are not loaning money to our clients who need financing for these projects … so they are on hold … indefinitely. There are NO JOB openings in our industry, which impacts developers, architects, interior designers, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and manufacturers, just to name a few. The list includes highly educated, creative and talented people … and accounts for hundreds of thousands of our nation’s unemployed. WE ARE NOT LAZY BUMS!!! Trust me, we would do anything to get our jobs and our lives back!!! It is impossible to pay for day care when you take a random job making a fraction more than unemployment benefits (if that) in this economy. Many of these positions do not provide benefits either. Fix the economy by freeing credit markets so businesses can start borrowing money to sustain themselves and re-build (in my case, I mean that literally). Don’t strip us of the benefits we need to feed our families and maintain our health care. Our government created this mess, not us.

What This Blog Is About

From the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 to the deaths of Founding Fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson on July 4, 1826, we had 50 years to the day of pure, God given freedoms. On July 5, 1826, that all changed.

We need to fight back against tyranny so we can get back to those 50 years of our Republic's birth.
