Republican Ramen For The Unemployed Advertisement

            Introducing “Republican Ramen”, a new meal brought to you by the Republicans in Congress to help the unemployed get through the day in a cost efficient manner.

            Republican Ramen is now for breakfast, lunch plus dinner and is tea party approved.

            To the Republicans, unemployment is mind over matter, they do not mind the fact that you are unemployed, so it does not matter to them.

The November elections will be here soon . . .

The Weekly Weird Republican News Issue #7

Weekly Weird Republican News Issue 7 Meme Mike Meshew

The Weekly Weird Republican News Issue #7

          Issue #7 of The Weekly Weird Republican News features an exclusive on Texas Senator Ted Cruz and His Secret Plant to cut U.S. spending by the staggering amount of 1 million dollars!

         There is a double feature on Mitch McConnell where he states “that the only unemployment he cares about is his own” and another article where we speculate whether Mitch McConnell has been ‘touched by an angel’ based upon the photograph on the cover.

         We have another in a series of things that perplexes news anchor and author Bill O’Reilly. This time we examine the mystery of pop up tissues and Bill’s confusion with why it is that every time you pull a tissue out, another one pops out.

         In conclusion we have a special from the 2012 Presidential campaign featuring Mitt Romney’s “Mitt Squares” game show. Whether it is a presidential debate, campaign rally or TV interview, all of America tries to guess which Mitt will speak at the event and just like gambling, you have about equal odds in guessing correctly. There is so little time and too many Mitts.

Congress Embraces Unemployment Part 1

Congress Embraces Unemployment

Both Sides Now

          Over Two months ago Congress terminated unemployment benefits for over 2 million people facing record cold weather heating bills while your Senators, Representatives and President left town for their holiday vacations. They promised to fix the unemployment extensions upon their return but it has still not been solved.

          The number has increased to over 2 million people while Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid promises to put unemployment extensions at the front of his agenda. He can not do this alone, so now would be a good time to write, call or email your Senator, Representative and President to let them know where you stand on this issue and to let them know their actions will be remembered when you vote this year.

Together, we can make this happen! Thank You.

Extend Unemployment Benefits Part 3

Extend Unemployment Benefits Part 3

Extend Unemployment Benefits Part 3

      Congress left town 2 months ago for their Christmas holiday vacation vacation without extending unemployment benefits. Congress promised to fix it when they returned but Congress has not fixed the problem while the unemployed are still trying to survive winter without benefits.

       President Obama was in Hawaii during his two week Christmas holiday vacation enjoying the tropical climate while 1.6 million people lost their unemployment benefits while facing record cold temperatures and heating bills.

I guess our President is a big fan of irony!

       We have reelected you & need much more than a speech & a photo op. Profile the unemployed to create pressure on Congress from their voters. Polls shows that 58% of Americans support the unemployment benefit extension. We would rather see you try and fail instead of doing practically nothing.

       All it takes is an email, phone call or letter to remind your President, Senator and Representative of their promises to extend these unemployment benefits upon their return to work. Contact President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to let them where you stand on  this important issue.
