    Hmm, I can see several different angles on this, but at heart, it goes to show just what a poor economy means this time of year.

    The "heartless evil conservative" side thinks this develops toughness which will cause effort down the road, the "compassionate conservative" side wonders at the bluster from those who think unemployment benefits have run on for to long.

    and the realist, moderate part of me sees this and thinks of how congress was stalled, so the richest 1% of the people in this country could keep thier wealth, while all the middle class cattle that voted for those that made it possible sit and pray for some of that money to "trickle down".... you have more chance of something trickling down their leg and landing on you... and it wont be money.
