If you are a military veteran and have been cut off from EB, please chime in on here so we can get an idea of how many veterans these clowns in the House / Senate and the Governors office are screwing around with.

Lets get a list of these veterans with their contact numbers / email address's so we can submit to the media their stories.

We know already they are arrogant SOB's but lets add unpatriotic to the list to further dampen their already sh**ty public image.

Imagine telling your kids that there is only 30 dollars on foodstamps until June 9 and that means eating one a day every other day so we can stretch this.

No lunch money nothing as far as money and how do I get the gas to go to the grocery store I mean where does this madness stop where is rock bottom where is the turning point that we can start climbing out of this hole.

How many moms and dads are going to have to go to Raleigh and sit on the legislative bldg grounds before our leaders will lead and stop this madness???

I'm burning up the twitter airwaves with tweets and retweets to all the national media I can think of that may be sympathetic to our cause. Tweeting because my phone is almost out of minutes. I encourage all who tweet to do the same. If enough of us rattle enough chains, when the pubs come back next week they will rush to get this mess behind them. They are looking like the cruel, uncaring extremists they are. They don't want EVERYONE to know that.

Go to this facebook page:


NC Extended Unemployment Benefits | Facebook



Near the bottom of the page, among the first few posts, there are links to different sources of assistance. I'll try to post back up towards the top so they are more easily found.
