LaVonnica, traditional tithing is 10% of Gross Income (before taxes). God gets his before the IRS gets theirs.

Re: “Lawmaker wants jobless to perform mandatory community service to receive unemployment benefits

Wow @AtlantaAdvocate. It's revealing that you have the time and energy to sit all day commenting on CL's blog instead of working, literally going through each comment and responding to every contribution.

Dog, if you were unemployed, according to your own pompous rants, you would definitely deserve $0 in unemployment compensation ("welfare" as you put it). You better hope some unfortunate circumstance does not befall you.

Here's an idea you might get down with: Install web use monitoring software on any person receiving unemployment benefits to make sure they do not spend all day commenting on blogs instead of being productive. Anyone making asinine comments gets denied!

You create a generalized idea of a type of person, criticize your imaginary people for being lazy, yet you yourself waste your entire day where you sit. You criticize your imagined stereotype for trying to get handouts, yet you avoid work and still feel deserving. Are you republican? No, let me guess...you're actually John Albers aren't you?

Re: “Lawmaker wants jobless to perform mandatory community service to receive unemployment benefits

We would also consider the households with children. If the unemployed person goes to work at an unpaid position, how would they cover the cost of child care?

I like the idea, because getting out into the world is a good way to network and get a paid position, but it cannot be mandatory. 24 hours per week at an unpaid position with no chance of it leading to a paid position is a waste of time and takes away from the time that would otherwise be spent searching for gainful employment.

Many people can only afford to pay for daycare if they are earning enough to cover necessities and the cost of daycare. Job searching by phone and internet allow parents to be present with their children and still search for employment. It's possible to find a sitter or family member to cover one or two hours while the parent goes to an interview, but consistent safe daycare at 24 hours per week is costly.

It's unfortunate that politicians like the vermin Albers and Loudermilk continue to try to mislead the public by calling unemployment insurance benefits "welfare". Unemployment benefits are payments from unemployment insurance, which is insurance in the case that a citizen becomes unemployed. There is no "hand-out". The policy is paid into by employers and the payout is the result of the insurance policy becoming payable under specific conditions. These dudes are complete dicks!

Re: “Why does Iran dislike the United States?

It left me thirsting for more. Informative, yet not boring. Andisheh, I hate your new picture. Why would you get rid of the tablecloth on your head? Why? It makes no sense. You looked so profound before. Now you just look like...well, it's just not funny anymore.

Re: “Summer Movie Guide

Yes, this dialog is great. It makes movie reviews interesting and funny - Keep Up the Good Work. Also, I would like to see every Satanist boycott Tom Cruise. Do not go see his movie. I saw him in this episode of Southpark- anyone who stars in that show will go straight to heven...did you see how they made fun of the dark prince in that show? Absolute blasphemy!

Re: “How the corndog became a hipster icon

Well it's about time! Being veg, I could care less about ground carcass fried on a stick...but when I read that they have processed soy fried on a stick - I'm there! Finally, we vegetarian outcasts can be included. Praise Allah!
