Interesting Comment Today About Unemployment from my YouTube Video

While I was working on my YouTube account, I found a request for approving a comment for one of my videos talking about my unemployment. I have pasted the comment exactly as written.

stop wiening and enjoy it, iv been getting unemploment for two years and its great, iv been fishing and boating everyday, chilling with sluts at the beach,

I left out the personal attack portion due to the obscene language.

I have listened to all of the comments made on radio talk shows about extending unemployment for 2 years and further discussions about extending it even further. I have defended the unemployment benefits for those who truly needed them. Unfortunately, we have people like this who abuse the system and treat the unemployment benefits as an entitlement. The 111th Congress passed a $56 billion extension to the unemployment benefits. Instead of paying for it using the unspent funds from the stimulus package, Congress added it to our national debt.

This comment actually made me sick. I understand that there will always be people who abuse federal programs designed to help those in need. I took unemployment and it helped me over a lot of financial problems. Needless to say, I worked very hard to find a job. I sent out almost 1,700 resumes and completed 800 applications.

I thank God each and every day for the blessings of a job.
