Obama to unemployed: More help is on the way
Why didn't something think of thissooner? Oh, wait, I know the answer. Never mind.
The country needs to give the unemployed incentives like this to go back to school. It's amazing that the system — go back to school, say goodbye to your unemployment benefits — is set up the way that it is.
Okay, deep down I know I'm not a loser — nor is anyone else who loses their job. But getting laid off, even if it was based on tenure and the economy has gone all Titanic on us, well, it's hard not to feel like getting cut from the JV baseball team all over again. Plus I'm horny for alliteration. And I thought it was funny, especially after Googling "Laid Off Loser" and a link came up that had something to do with "a shirt covered in Cheetos." It might come to that.
