Everybody Say YES We Maybe Cannnnn...

I want you to throw your hands in the air and
Everybody Say YES We Maybe Cannnnn...

Yes that was Obama Girl, I realized it when she said "These letter streets will confuse you and fox will abuse you. In DC"

I wonder how Jay and Alicia feelin now that they've been parodied by the whitehouse ? must be a big feelin to know that you started a phenomenon and now everybody and the fake impersonators wants to remix you.

do you think we could get congress to realize that they are eligible for a remix too ? after all isn't it time we started talking about term limits, ending filibustering and capping congressional benefits. we did it for the president, so why not congress; especially since they are preventing anything from moving forward in the restoration bills.

Whatcha Think, should we Autotune Congress ?

This is from the Huffington Post - just thought I'd justify you watching those crazy videos

State Workforce Agencies: Thank Congress If You Lose Your Unemployment Benefits Next Week

State workforce agencies are telling recipients of unemployment insurance that they'll have Congress to thank if they suddenly find themselves ineligible for several months of benefits checks they'd been counting on.
"If the Congress does not vote by February 28 to extend federal unemployment benefits, no new extensions will be established and the federal programs that are in place will be phased out," says the letter sent to recipients by the Unemployment Insurance Agency in Michigan.
It's not exactly a comforting piece of mail.

"I cannot convey enough the pure terror that ran through my blood when I received this letter," wrote Christine Skipper, a 42-year-old single mother in Rochester Hills, Mich., in an email to HuffPost. "To say that it is stressing out 5 million plus people is the understatement of the recession. I wonder if they have been losing any sleep in Washington, because I will tell you in Michigan we sure are."

States typically provide 26 weeks of unemployment benefits for workers laid off through no fault of their own. The stimulus bill passed one year ago provided more than 50 additional weeks of federally-funded benefits, an extra $25 per week and a 65 percent subsidy of COBRA health insurance for workers laid off between September 2008 and December 2009. As the cutoff loomed last year, Congress scrambled to push the eligibility deadline to Feb. 28. Now they're scrambling again for another extension.

The loss of Unemployment benefits for million of Americans is a disaster. There may be a chance that a new bill will be introduced to re-up UC, but I wouldn't hold my breath. This country, through its government, has lost its soul. I am not just speaking of Obama here, but of those limp Dems who who put themselves out on a limb and those Republicans who "just say no." I'm sick of the whole lot of them.

Jim Bunning is the one hold out and he needs to face the people who he's starving. he needs to see them face to face on a one on one basis.

that to me seems only fair, when you starve and make a person homeless. this is exactly why I think we need more information about candidates before they're allowed to hold such an important office.

the american election process needs serious reform, and I believe that people are now going to start to see it.

lets cross our fingers that the movement is strong enough to carry through this time. enough of these filabustas.
