    Because the government hasnt created jobs for the people to buy food on there own along with the price of food still hanging on to the cost of fuel for transporting the price of fuel went down but the price of food didnt it just more scandle we were told the price of food would go back down when the cost to deliver it did just another government lie .

    And with all this going on, we have an old man from Kentucky denying benefits to millions of jobless Americans so that his rich friends can avoid paying taxes when they die. Brunning doesn't care about the lines at food banks or if there's anything there. He'll starve out 500 million people to save one of his campaign contributors 1 million dollars. How many people will be in these lines for the first time next week because of this man?

    Being a waitor I tip the way it is supposed to be.
    20 percent for good service. Meaning that well nothing really went wrong
    15 percent goes to service that was well just bad: drink ran out, food came out wrong, never saw the server and so forth

    People need to remember that this is our job. Most of us are students and on average have to give 20 percent of our tips to the house. This money then goes to bussers hostess and so on. So yeah 15 percent is not enough for good service. (If she did get good service)

    The US Senate yesterday and today try to pass the unemployment extension and they could not get the bill pass. The Senate stay in session during Christmas Eve for health care. There our no jobs in the US and now Sunday people will loose unemployment and the all the news is silence. Millions will not be able to pay rent so millions will go homeless.

    Earlier this month, Kyrgyzstan's president said that his country is ending the U.S. use of an air base that has been key to military operations in Afghanistan, Yep, Kyrgyzstan kicked the US out of its country even thou the CIA and US State Dept. had given them Hundreds of Millions of US Taxpayer dollars in bribes and payments to use that former USSR airbase.

    The US Airforce was entirely relying on the Airbase in Kyrgyzstan for its KC-130 refueling tanker fleet to continuously refuel fighter jets flying over Afghanistan. Fighter jets very quickly run out of fuel and have a relatively short range if they are not refueled, thus this latest GET OUT AMERICA is a large blow to the fable of 'winning the hearts and minds' ginned up in some Pentagon backroom.

    What to do with the Billions of extra taxpayer dollars that America now has since Kyrgyzstan told the American military it didn't want any more of its money and to get out of its airbase?

    Use that money to pay for the unemployment extension in America that is helping to provide rent and food to millions of unemployed Americans during one of the greatest recessions in American history.

    We can not feed our people because of greed, pollution, and selfishness. We as americans have been gluttons for so long that we caused a new epidemic to emerge. Obeseity. Hunger is spiraling out of control and if we are not careful, soon even the elite will have nothing to eat. There is nothing we can do.
