This is a global issue, not only in USA... indeed some areas in the world have no support system for unemployed to be registered

I've tried petitions here but they haven't gotten signatures. Maybe it's time to try another one

petitions???

This, our globalized socio-economic $y$tem, is easily murdering(*) more humans PER YEAR than the Third Reich in all of its sorry existence (AND exterminating 200+ species PER DAY etc etc). E.g. every 2.x seconds a human dies of hunger, and this is not the stone or the middle ages, this is the global village, with a "free market" (enforced at gunpoint), where this does not happen by accident but by design.
And while hunger for many years was" the worst form of violence" (Gandhi) it is now being overtaken by pollution.

Maybe it's time TO TAKE UP ARM AND BRING DOWN THE FOURTH REICH and the capitalFascistic $y$tem

*) " A child that dies of starvation today is being murdered. There is no reason for dying. It is the world order that kills. "
-- Jean Ziegler, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, in Der Geist des Geldes/The Spirit of Money" (2007)

As one of the 2 million, I can thank the obstructionists (a.k.a. Republican) in Congress.

What the Hello Kitty are they supposed to do now? I can hear the conservative sock-puppet chorus now: "Get a job!" Oh yeah? What do you bit brains think these people have been doing, sitting around and playing Angry Birds? A lot of those people would sell their souls for a job slinging hamburgers. Now they're going to join the ranks of the homeless, fight over scraps in garbage cans, hunt pigeons and stray dogs, or lick Grandma's feet and beg to move into her basement. I am lucky that I have a job, and was able to provide a long-time friend with a place to stay.

Read & noted. Signed Alan Lambert's petition. Thanks Alan. If just 5 % of Care2 members signed that would be 1,250,000 signatures.
