Tier 5 Unemployment Extension for 99ers: Let Them Eat Cake

The unemployment extension Tier 5 for the 99ers will probably have very little discussion from the lame-duck Congress this week. They are first going to discuss if the unemployment extension Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 should be extended to those who have not even received these extensions. With millions of unemployment extensions ending the end of November 2010 these are also needed.

Many of the 99ers, some for 2 years, are trying to keep their homes, if they haven't already lost them. A favorite movie at this time of the year is "It's A Wonderful Life" starring James Stewart and Donna Reed. Unless we have a lot of representatives in Congress like George Bailey (James Stewart) it looks like it won't be such a "wonderful life" for many this Christmas.

Reading comments online that are similar to the comment that follows, shows how dire many of the unemployed are becoming:

This from Kaynonymous:

"I'm a 99er too. 53, female, single and once on track with an IT career. No one in their right mind would consider me for an IT position after being gone from the field for over 2 years. I have officially been a 99er since May 2010. In Aug. 2010 all of my savings and retirement funds were finally depleted--not only can I no longer make my mortgage payment, I can no longer afford utilities either. I'm just not sure that the 99ers ever had a voice outside of union organizers and even with them it was too little too late. Guess I'll be seeing ya'll in the soup kitchens and tent cities. I do still have my tent..."


With just a few days this week that Congress will be in session and having all next week off for Thanksgiving vacation, it will be lucky if the unemployment extension for Tier 1 through Tier 4 will even be voted on much less likely the Tier 5 for 99ers. For the unemployed who may not even have bread to eat this Thanksgiving we're hoping that the members in Congress won't be saying, "Let them eat cake."

41 months ago: SHOULD 5 million 99ers BE Getting Ready to HOBO UP?

Ask any Hobo about economics and they say a good can opener and a water proof flint box is essential. So look to the TEA PARTY GOP HOUSE to provide these items instead of Tier 5

Will the 99ers in 2011, who make up the next generation pool of 5 million possible HOBOs find their experiences to be much different than Hobos from the 1930's? Yes, first of all, is the fact there are many high tech
improvements in the rail infrastructure. The railroads of today are faster and computerized allowing freight transfer switch backs of individual cars in the yards. This makes predicting a certain freight car's destinations along with an arrival time a hit and miss situation. Therefore the trick is to catch a rail
as it heads up a hill out of town and learn car profile tracking.

Today's freight rail systems also have hubs that functions like the hubs for airlines. Today freight rails have fewer open cars and added security. But at the same time today's 99er Hobos are more educated and have a powerful equalizer tool in job travel and climate control. The advantage is for all future 99er Hobos to keep their cell phones active.

The cell phone is the break through Survival Connection Tool on the HOBO UP RAIL HIGHWAY. By sharing information on job relocation tips, weather updates, possible tent cities, soup kitchens, and even new gear handouts the words
of wisdom will spread like the old 49er Gold Rush. Hobo jungles (camp sites) will be known by all 200 miles before entering town. Finally lost reunions with cross country relatives and friends will take place. Like "Jason, your uncle Ned is in town and needs to be picked up in the rail yard for dinner".
"Do you remember him"?

Now of course keeping a good battery charge and extra batteries will be paramount. Also old hobos have a wealth of info and can show the ropes to us newly minted 99er hobos.

From Artist 99er Country Carl dot com Singer of the 99ers New Depression Blues - YouTube - hopefully you too won't have to HOBO UP.
