When an horse stepped into an hole A cowboy was dumped on the dole He sat in his saddle Just rowing a paddle Because work was never his goal

Yes, with Joe's $2,000 plus unemployment, some are better off not working, but then the lose the opportunity of getting a good job before the bubble bursts. Aloha! Rico

That seems to be the prevailing thought among some. And, DUH, of course people will stay on unemployment if it is higher than their wages. It just points out how unlivable their wages are! Great write, Rico. Aloha.

The poor drop out of school to support their family, yet politicians insist the poor can understand the 1040 instructions composed by lawyers! Hence the poor pay taxes and the wealthy do not! Aloha! Rico

An high percentage of the immigrants in the USA must work 2-3 jobs to pay the rent, especially in Hawai'i, yet the GOP insist they are just lazy .....

The GOP leadership insist the Working Class have NO class because they do not diligently work 2-3 jobs per day to put a roof over the heads of their children.
