Jobless Talk to return July 8, 2011

 After nearly a month hiatus, Paladinette’s Blog Talk Radio show “Jobless Talk” will resume broadcasts next friday, July 8, 2011.

It has been a tough ride for the long term unemployed Americans, called "the 99ers." Everyday in this country, another 15,000 more displaced workers lose their UI benefits. Often they have sold every thing of value just to survive. Such is the case for the long term unemployment advocate Paladinette.

Last Fall, Jobless Talk was in danger of ending broadcasts completely, when out of the blue a benefactor offered to subsidize Paladinette's advocacy efforts. This agreement was for a term of 6 months and during that time I was able to continue the fight for the millions of unemployment exhaustees and fight for more help for these citizens Washington DC has deserted.

Looking for work in this economy is NOT improving as Obama would have America believe. The additional 6 months of constant job search did not yield the desired result and like the millions of other 99ers out there today, Paladinette finds herself on the brink of homelessness once again.

"I wish I could have been more successful in inspiring the masses to get out in the streets and protest in large numbers, but alas it appears there is no fight left in the majority of those in the 99er community."

It is likely that next Friday's Jobless Talk at noon Pacific time, will be the last broadcast in the series which began in April 2010. 


New 99er "Ex-Lax Attack" Campaign announced on Jobless Talk

May 28, 2011

In an effort to get Congress 'moving' on HR 589, the new 99er  "Ex-Lax Attack" Campaign was announced on Friday's episode of Jobless Talk. The idea is one which has the potential to get media attention back on the suffering of the long term unemployed and something the jobless masses can have a little fun with. 

Near the end of her weekly RANT, Paladinette said: "It is now Memorial Day 2011, nearly 18 months since many UI exhaustees had a benefits check - and still NO MOVEMENT on HR 589 - no b...

GOP Sits on $31 Billion While Letting 99ers Starve

May 15, 2011
According to Keep America at Work and World Report today, the GOP is sitting on $31 billion dollars of paid in UI money, while they continue to let the 99ers starve daily.

From the article:

“The stated reason that HR 589 or a Tier 5 unemployment extension could not be introduced on the House floor was that neither could be financed, just another lie in a long stream of lies. Dave Camp, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee that is refusing to hear any legislation for unemployment exte...

Survivor: Thanks for the post from Al Mills

April 30, 2011


Thanks for the post from Al Mills

Survivor has always been my absolute favorite TV show and since we have gotten satellite TV after seeing this Direct Tv DVR Offers Comparison and I have been watching it non-stop. They always pick the best characters for this show, and yes, that includes the villains. I actually love that they put villains on Survivor, it really spices things up and it is really hard for me to think of them as 'bad people' because after all, it is a game that requires ...

Royal Wedding: Who Cares? Americans Ask WHERE are the JOBS!

April 27, 2011
With all the media buzz over the Royal Wedding these days, on this side of the pond America asks: Who Cares? Ed Schultz even mentioned on his MSNBC political hour last night how only 6% of Americans care anything about this overpriced and over covered media event. Ed Schultz taking time in his show to discuss the Royal Wedding may be testimony as to how hard up for political news the media is while Congress vacations - but America is asking WHERE are the JOBS?

It would seem that the media woul...

Unemployment Zealotry and the Frustrations of a Jobs Advocate

April 27, 2011
There is a great deal to be said about Unemployment Zealotry and the Frustrations of being a Jobs Advocate. The job does not suffer fools or lend itself to the faint hearted or thin skinned. Zealotry is a sacrificial calling as it turns out - but one never really sets out to go on such a quest. Often it is thrust upon you by circumstance or necessity. Such is the case of one Unemployed Zealot: Paladinette.

When blowing the whistle on corrupt mortgage lending at a nationwide lender landed her i...
