From Democracy Now Headlines, Tuesday March 2, 2010:

Sen. Bunning Continues Filibuster of Unemployment Benefits Bill

The Department of Transportation furloughed nearly 2,000 employees without pay Monday as Senate Republican Jim Bunning continued to filibuster a key spending bill to extend unemployment and COBRA benefits for hundreds of thousands of Americans. The blocked bill also affects several governmental agencies, rural television customers and doctors receiving Medicare payments. Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, the Republican whip, defended Bunning's opposition to the bill. Kyl said unemployment benefits dissuade people from job hunting because "people are being paid even though they're not working." Due to Bunning's filibuster, forty-one highway projects were shut down yesterday because federal inspectors were off the job. The Obama administration ordered Medicare billing contractors not to pay any claims from doctors for the first ten business days of March. On Monday, when a producer from ABC tried to ask Bunning why he was blocking the unemployment benefits, Bunning flashed him the middle finger. (source)

Vous voyez, les Trolls, la famine et de l'itine'rance se forger un caractère! Ils vous descendez de derrière et à bousculer pour ce travail que vous savez être là-bas vous attend. Et d'ailleurs, si vous avez à bousculer votre e'pouse et la fille sur le coin de la rue, c'est très bien aussi, pour qui construit aussi de caractère, hahaha!
Maintenant, va te faire foutre


You see, Trolls, starvation and homelessness build character! They get you off your derriere and out hustling for that job that you know is out there waiting for you. And for that matter, if you have to hustle your wife and daughter on the street corner, that is all well and good too, for THAT also builds character, hahaha! Now, go f... yourself!
