Today the lame-duck Democratic Congress refused to extend Unemployment benefits for over 2 million Americans whose benefits will expire this holiday season. We knew how selfish and callous the Republicans are, but to lose this vote in a Democratic House is the last straw!

I am herewith calling for the creation of a new political movement: the 99ers. We are the unemployed who have been abandoned by both parties. We should stipulate to one condition: we will vote out of office anyone of any party who will not support an amendment to the constitution requiring all congressional pay raises to be approved by a referendum of the American people. If they won't do the people's business the people won't pay their salaries. Let them make the case for their pay raises before the same people to whom they deny basic humanity. If I'm going to be a slave I'm going to be Spartacus.

Veterans Day Message from First Lady, Michelle Obama

Veterans Day provides us with the chance to mark the debt of honor we owe to all those who have worn the uniform of the United States. We remember those who gave their lives beneath our flag, in service of our freedom.

And with so many still fighting, we owe special thanks to the courageous families of those who serve.

Because when our servicemen and women deploy overseas, their loved ones are left to undertake heroic battles of their own at home. The unique challenges they face in support of men and women in uniform allow us all to enjoy the freedoms of our democracy.

Every time I have a chance to meet with these families, I'm struck by their strength and their quiet dignity -- they are truly some of the most selfless, courageous people I've met.

And today is also a day to acknowledge the sacrifices these brave men and women make every day, and pray for the safe return of those they love.

I've felt their calling personally, and I want to encourage Americans across the country to step up and do more for our military families. Take the time to stay informed about the concerns and activities of the families of service members in your community. Let them know you recognize their struggles and appreciate all they do.

You can help by finding out the needs of the military families in your community and volunteering, from working with your local school's PTA to hiring a military spouse.

Today and every day, I am moved by the personal sacrifices made by service families. And I'm humbled by the patriotism of those they support -- our soldiers and airmen, our sailors and Marines.

Today, if you can, please take a moment to offer your gratitude for the families of the veterans and active service members that you know. Or go online to to find out how you can serve military families in your area.

Does Obama Have the Balls to Layth the Smackth-Down on Republicans?

Obama has to send all those Nay-Sayers directly into hell. Republican’s won the house by saying no. Think about it. They said no, but and they walked away. Anyone could do that.

Here’s an arbitrary confrontation between John Boehner and Harry Reid:

Reid: Do you like our healthcare proposal?
Boehner: No
Reid: Why not?
Boehner: No
Reid: What?
Boehner: No
Reid: WTF?!?!?
Boehner: No
Reid: You’ve got balls?
Boehner: I’ve already said it. NO NO NO.
