Ok Sissel, I have NEVER seen or heard what I seen today. It is posted at the local unemployment office, the Exact wording of it is"URGENT NOTICE....as of December 29, 2012, there is no longer any unemployment benefits."
Call me stupid, but, that posting being on a state ran office is enough reason for concern, as far as your Chicken Little comment, you remember that comment, when someone who is starving wants what you have and will do anything to get it. Maybe you haven't noticed, but the US of A is going to hell in a hand basket, and quick. If you haven't noticed, get your head out of the sand.
And since I don't understand how the system works, Please, enlighten me. I have been on unemployment before, I have somewhat of an understanding how it works. So with that being said, I look forward to my Enlightenment...pffftt Better yet, I will personally go there tomorrow as I know the woman who is the secretary. And I will let you know what I have learned.
Your Chicken Little comment Irked me. I understand you are entitled to your opinion. BUT, i'd like to know what you do for a living.
I have what some people would call a very UNIQUE perspective on things going on in the everyday world.
would you like to be enlightened, Buy a 800mhz scanner and just listen to what goes on.
Just today, a 50-60 year old man robbed an Aldis for crying out loud. I actually pitty people like you, cuz your heads in the clouds, and you are oblivious to what is actually going on, Man, your gonna have a really rude awakening, and that is putting it nicely.edit on 18-11-2012 by thepolish1 because: had to add a LITTLE something.

Ok, I did what I said, and I spoke to the woman at the unemployment office, There is no more federal unemployment, state yes. And there is not going to be any federal unemployment benefits, the woman also told me it was a first for her to. There are no more extensions, no new claims for federal. there is noting left to give.I also would like to say, there probably won't be any for a while, because as the system works, there are too many people on unemployment, and not enough working to replace the money. That is how it works...right??
And no I do not threaten people, it is not proper, lets just chalk it up to a heads up. Ok, you are a truck dispatcher, I'm sure you have heard your share of wild things. I am also not a fear monger,I'm just a realist trying to get info out there....troll much???
Yes, there are food banks and things of that nature, BUT, they depend on donations, which, if people can not afford to feed their families, the donations will not be there. Not only that, you damn near have to be destitute to get any help, go back and read the op, the whole point was to try to get people to help one another out....bottom line...
Also, MN taxation is totally different than Indiana, I had a friend who lived up there and loved it, what is your current sales tax rate?? Isn't it like 11 % sales tax??Indiana is at 6 %. it doesn't seem like much of a difference, but it is.edit on 19-11-2012 by thepolish1 because: (no reason given)

Thank you for putting into words so eloquently what I was not able to do.
You didn't beat around the bush, and I appreciate that.
Good enough OP? Because this was very well put!
