Quite a nice statement of ideology and belief.
But -- deep within it -- exist a lot of assumptions.
Why not ... humor a very few of us, and ... go ahead and back them up.
Data ... sources ... you know.
Spoken like a truly pathetic bigot.
Unemployment payments come from unemployment insurance funds and are
not a handout.
Perhaps you would care to share with us where the jobs you state are
available per your quote below.
"There are plenty of jobs available for those willing to work".
Not only the unemployed would like to know, but a lot of government
officials lives would easier if the unemployment problem were solved.
"why should I work when
You best your sweet ass the unemployed want to goof off and get more
while they loose the health insurance, can't pay the mortgage and hope
like hell no one gets sick and has to see a doctor they can't afford
to pay or buy the drugs needed for a love one at inflated prices
because they no longer have health insurance.
Yes Gordon, you are a pathetic little bigot.
Hey, now... Gordon's just making a simple mistake - he's thinking
WELFARE, not unemployment. It's the same argument, really :) I wonder
what he'd like the government to spend the unemployment insurance

In my opinion there should be no unemployment compensation at all.
You and the employer shouldn't be required to pay. You keep what you
earn. Unfortunately the politicians would have no way to get their
piece of it so that will never happen.
I don't know where you are at but in Al, everyone pays a set percentage
into an employment insurance fund until it is fully funded, when the
fund drops to a certain level the the fee kicks in and you pay it until
the fund is full and any money borrowed to keep it afloat in bad
periods of unemployment is paid back, sure it is a complusory fee but
It hasn't showed up on payroll anytime since the mid eighties and is not
being collected even now.
In Illinois the employee pays a fixed percentage into the unemployment
fund and the employer also pays a fixed percentage. This fee is paid
in all economic conditions in every pay period. It would not be
possible for someone to ever get out what they have paid in.
Apparently living in a Republican state has even more advantages that
we don't have in a Democratic state.
I am retired now. I have paid into that fund my entire life. Someone
else has gotten the money that I worked hard for. If I had the money
I paid into the fund it would be worth tens of thousands of dollars.
Having said that I could have retired a few years earlier if I didn't
have to support some Democrat.

You need to understand that it isn't a handout. The tax we all must
pay for SSI is worse even than the payment for unemployment -- you
will never get out of it what you paid in to it either. If the people
were allowed to invest that money on their own we would be far better
off. After we die that investment would still be there for your
family. All that you paid in to SSI evaporates upon your death.
To answer your question, no, I won't be eligible for six more years.
