Nice!

I just called Tillis' office again with hope of getting a voice mail and one of the staffers answered so I gave her my line again. "I read and article about the unemployed today and I don't think it's right!" They are not even taking names at the moment and slammed with calls.

Keep calling and keep in mind that these 2 have POWER to make this go away today!

soleprovider51, I want you to know that I feel for your situation. Although this does not put $$ in your pocket. I hope my sentiments validate your feelings towards what is happening in our state.

--We are all pretty much up to date on what is happening with this ridiculous "stalemate". All of the state officials look like a bunch of bumbling jacka**ses.

--I have called Tillis and Berger twice today(left messages), emailed and called the governor again, and emailed all of the republican reps again...whats next.

What is next? The media is aware of our situation? Is it going to take something drastic on the part of the" unemployed hostages" to force a change in policy? I don't even know what this drastic action could even equate too? People are growing increasingly desperate, desperate to the point that they are running out of options to survive.

People were given TWO week notice that their income was cutting off in the worst economy since 1929.

Please give me some feedback on these questions--your honest opinion:

1. Does anyone feel that this situation is going to be rectified in the next few weeks? Are they going to reinstate benefits, or are the disenfranchised workers of NC F-ed?

2. Is our push for media attention even affecting these "leaders"?

Maybe if all 37,000 of us decided to march on the capital they may wake up and listen. Or maybe as we get evicted we set up our tent city on the governors grounds. I think it's BS that if I was working and doing my job as inadequately as they are I would have been fired by now.

I truly believe that we control our own destiny. I just wish we had a better way to connect to the rest of the 37000+. I would guess we only have about 1000 followers here that have been moved to act in the past few weeks. That's simply not enough to make a difference.

If Tillis and Berger received 37000+ calls and emails daily this would have been a distant memory.

KEEP CALLING and EMAILING!

I just called Tillis again for the 3rd time today and quoted the above article and let his office know that if "I don't find a job or receive benefits by "July 1st" I will absolutely 100% lose everything I've worked for in the past 30 years"
