'Tough Shit!' Jim Bunning Says
Beam me the f*ck up! California's legislators are NOT the only ones displaying cussy verbal decorum, as at least one Kentucky Republican Senator may be harboring some kind of closet William Shatner festish after the naysaer shouted “Tough Shit” last night at Democrats who wanted to extend unemployment benefits for a measly 30 days.
HuffPo reports that Jim Bunning, a Republican United States Senator from Kentucky, is “single-handedly blocking needed Senate action to stop at least 1.2 million American workers from losing their unemployment benefits next month.” As Democratic senators pleaded over and over again for unanimous consent to a 30-day extension Thursday night, Bunning refused to go along, telling Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley “Tough Shit.”
TOUGH SHIT! Jim Bunning Says.
Out of work Americans? Hahaha! Too bad. Yeah, too bad! Politicians know there's big money for a select few corporate and political insiders in selling out American jobs to imported Indians, so what's the problem with not extending unemployment benefits another lousy 30 days? Why not ACCELERATE the pain 30 days sooner, haha, just for yucks. Put 'em in their place. What's a few more educated, Americans citizens to tumble out of the middle class onto the streets, just where the sociopathic, neo-frat boys and wannabes want 'em? Ain't it grand!
So, if your government is still selling out American jobs to cheap foreign workers which makes you unemployed with no job prospects in sight and you need (at least) 30 more days of benefits to do exotic things like splurge on a few cans of Little Friskies (not for their pets) or pay the rent –
TOUGH SHIT! Jim Bunning Says. Repeatedly, too!
Meanwhile, the One Big Party of Money continues to play the partisan plebes like a harmonica, as the insurance industry payday “health care debate” summit farce designed to force or mandate Americans to subsidize unaffordable insurance mafia plans at least keeps insufferable media hacks in the black. Of course, if there were jobs to pay for health insurance, then no problemo, yes? Hey Obama, how about that Job Bill?
Until then, Tough Shit! Like this nasty Republican says. And Democrats, nice try - but at the rate Congress and greedy corporate executives continue to sell out and labor arbitrage U.S. jobs to cheap foreign labor, a teeny 30 day extension on unemployment benefits for American citizens is like throwing a blanket on a ten-alarm fire. This problem won't go away until U.S. job outsourcing and insourcing labor practices are finally reformed.
Party on, plebes!
