Jobless aid drying
up for 55,000 Ohioans

Columbus Dispatch [OH], by Catherine Candisky

About 55,000 long-term unemployed Ohioans will lose federal jobless benefits during the holidays as the recession-era emergency aid comes to an end. Approved by Congress more than four years ago, the federally funded benefits have provided workers up to 73 additional weeks of aid after they exhaust six months of state payments. Lawmakers extended the program several times before restructuring it this year to reduce the maximum weeks available as the aid is phased out. Advocates for the unemployed are urging Congress to approve another extension, noting that the nation’s jobless rate remains at 7.9 percent.

Hunger is a great motivator. It has now come down to an US or THEM decision.
We can´t afford to pay you to be workless anymore. Sorry.

Not extending it might be the best thing for the unemployment rate. Once the safety net dries up these mooches will have to look seriously for a job and take the first one that is offered.

The article uses a phrase "Jobless Worker". Not sure what that means.
The nice part is that once jobless benefits end you are, by definition, no longer unemployed. You have, instead, left the work force so the unemployment rate ticks back down.
As benefits run out, we may well be down to a 4% unemployment rate by the end of Obama´s second term. See thing are getting better.

Not to worry. The unemployment rate will come down drastically when people having two part time jobs becomes the norm.

The SCOTUS erred hugely in 1937 when it ruled unemployment taxes and benefits to be constitutional. As it did in 2012 with ZeroCare.

At some point all this "gov´t assistance" has got to come to a head. With more and more people losing their jobs, and less taxes going to the gov´t, economic collapse can´t be far away.

Prime example is Hostess: 18,500 less people paying taxes. However, that´s 18,500 new people collecting unemployment for 2 years.

And simply raising taxes on the wealthy isn´t the answer -- only 1% of the population earns a million dollars or greater, which is why Obama wanted tax increases on those earning 250,000.

If the unemeployment payment is to be a new life-long pension then the laws should be changed to say that.

Otherwise when is it to cut off? What rules are best?

You will never convince the people receiving money that they should not get it.
And you will never convince advocates that they shouldn´t decide how much others should be taxed.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
