Unemployment Benefits Delayed? COBRA Payments Screwed Up?

If your unemployment benefits are delayed and/or you’re on COBRA and something funny’s going on with that, you might want to call Senator Jim Bunning (R-Ice in his Veins):

Kentucky Senator Whines About Missing University of Kentucky Basketball Game While Blocking Unemployment Benefits for Millions of Americans, and

COBRA Benefits Extension Held Up by Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky.

Talk to Jim:

And what do we hear from Bunning’s fellow Republicans?  Nada.  Zip.  Crickets.

Break Time

Check out this cool “Worldmeter” which is updated in real time and shows, oh, say, the number of births today, the number of species that have gone extinct this year (21,566 – amazing), the number of email messages sent today, etc.  (It takes about 10 seconds to load.)

Enjoy.

Democrats Beginning to Look More and More Like Republicans

Fox News Introduces “Photo Op-inion”

Fox has a new attraction, which it apparently thinks is pretty darn cleaver, but which, like everything Fox does, propagandizes against Democrats.  It’s called “Photo Op-inion.” People send in photoshopped pictures that make a statement, like the one below, which is one of 17 slides currently posted on the “Photo Op-inion” page.


Wow, funny huh?
