Unemployment payments are less than half of one's take-home pay; one can't survive on that income alone. Some of those people are still eating because they're selling their possessions on eBay, cashing in life insurance policies, and making early withdrawals (with huge penalties) from their retirement accounts.

f*ck you.

Ditto.

So, what I'm getting from this is that Limbaugh is upset that people aren't suffering?

not only is Limbaugh mad that people aren't suffering, he wants to make unemployment as painful and degrading as humanly possible. This is the face of modern Christianity folks. I can't make this shiat up. this is who they are and what they believe in. if you are weak, they will crush you. if you are down on your luck, they will kick you harder. if you turn the other cheek, they will slap it.

In a just world, it would be Limbaugh that was unemployed

Oblig for all Rushbo threads:

Back to the topic: Rush Limabaugh is a fetid, rancid chancre on the taint of humanity. If he dropped dead tomorrow, no one would mourn. There would be a line of people eating asparagus and drinking gallons of water, just for the opportunity to piss on his grave.

but it's true. all the unemployed people i know are getting high, have hobbies, sit on sofas, and watch tv. they go to restaurants, and buy coffee. i have not seen any pass away from hunger, or disease.

Considering the price of lobster today, even the homeless could buy some with just 10 minutes or so of can collecting.

My unemployment ran out in November; if it weren't for my spouse, I'd be on the streets right now. It's scary as hell trying to find work these days.

I hope Rush gets ass cancer.

The poor don't need government handouts like Section 8 housing or food stamps because they incentivize laziness.

The rich do need government handouts like capital gains tax cuts because they incentivize productivity.
This is what conservatives actually believe.

This fat piece of shiat can kiss MY fat ass.

My dad was fired for no reason besides he had seniority and they had to pay him. I got him to apply for unemployment and an EEOC complaint. He got both, He made as much from both if be had kept slogging at the farking company. He still has nightmares about how they fired him and the aftermath. farking PTSD. He didn't even get that from farking Vietnam. A place that fat shiat Rush wouldn't know much about, would he?

Lobsters!!!!

Also, put in Limbaugh's last name for the grimes speech it rings true to Rush.

I've had to work hard every day of my life, and what do I have to show for it? This briefcase and this haircut. And what do you have to show for your lifetime of sloth and ignorance? Everything! A dream house, two cars, a beautiful wife, a son who owns a factory, fancy clothes, and lobsters for dinner! And do you deserve any of it? No!

I'm saying, you're what's wrong with America, Simpson. You coast through life, you do as little as possible, and you leech off decent, hard working people like me. If you lived in any other country in the world, you'd have starved to death long ago. You're a fraud, a total fraud.
 
2012-07-14 10:06:22 PM
Well, Rush would know. When he was on unemployment, he was too lazy to mow his own damn lawn.
 
2012-07-14 10:08:41 PM
I wasn't real impressed with my last UI payments. The real kicker was that since my employee offered* insurance plan cost so much and I got so little use out of it, my UI payments actually came out to be more $ than my salary. It would have really really sucked if that were my sole income, though.

*really employer mandated. The business was small and to even qualify for the plan, every employee had to be in or there wouldn't be enough people to get the group rate. You try to tell 4 old, broken, post / near menopausal women and one woman so young and sexually active that she required weekly doctor visits due to STD concerns and sexual injuries (not a judgment, mind you, kind of jealous) that you couldn't afford the rate so they were SOL about their maintenance.

Got derailed there, but UI sucks ass, even when there are options to get more for Dependents. Rush is a fat man that does not know many things.

fark THAT FAT PIECE OF shiat.

I was laid off in March after working for 8 years in the videogame industry as a sound designer. Absolutely busted my ass and shipped 9 console titles. Constant crunch of 12 hour days...impact on my health with weight gain...decimation of my social life due to the pressures of work. And in the end I was given a pink slip. Now, I'll admit that this is the way life goes at times. Sometimes life hands you a rough deal and you've got to keep moving on.

But the truth is that audio jobs in this industry have farking vanished in the past 2 years. Most of the work is being outsourced to independent contractors or Hollywood audio studios. Again, this is the way life goes at times, and I certainly can't expect work out of the gate in this economy, but the fact that the 'audio' jobs section of Gamasutra (industry site) was deleted recently is all you need to know about how barren the opportunities are right now.

Soooooo....I'm going back to school to retrain in another discipline (3d mocap and visual effects). The ONLY reason this option is available to me is because my state is giving me unemployment benefits and it allows me the room to breathe so I can pursue schooling.

tl:dr fark OFF YOU FAT SLOB. Some of us who collect UI work harder than your junkie ass ever will.
 
2012-07-14 10:14:00 PM
unemployment insurance is something the people pay for out of their compensation when they work. it's temporary and doesn't amount to very much a week. fark you fatass for suggesting that people live well off of it and it comes from people like you.
