THE GOP’S ROTTING PAPER MACHE PINATA

GOP Incongruous Policies Add Up Incoherent Amateurish Artwork

draft 1

2/9/2014

Ineffective.  Lazy.  Worthless.

These are words that truly describe the GOP.  It’s unfortunate that no one realizes that they are just reflecting back their image upon the unemployed.  Most of my neighbors around me receive state and federal aid.  They live in rent controlled apartments.  They receive immigrant benefits for their children.  They receive heating assistance.  Electric Assistance.  GOP assistance; because the GOP will not let someone who is in retraining continue on pace and be able to pay his bills.  This recession was created by GOP job creators in an effort to extract more blood from American workforce.  Many people who have jobs are paid in CASH, or partial cash wages.  This further depletes the tax base.  I don’t know of ANY job creator who doesn’t take vacations, buy toys, continue giving themselves raises.  THEY are hooked on the sugar and refuse to pay living wages.  The GOP are the sludge of the Earth, and should recognize their place,

JUST SIT BACK DOWN, and pass this 2014 Unemployment Extension.

Their hollow words contain no fiscal veracity and when they are placed side by side it is clear to see GOP policy isn’t worth the toilet paper it is written on.

Their scare tactics will not stop the voice of truth…

NO GOVERNOR MALLOY, YOU CAN’T HAVE MY DOL LETTER BACK

You’re Harassing Me To Be Perfect?  Here’s A Mirror…  And Get Out Of My Ear!

1/24/2014

Second DRAFT

The CT DOL expects 27,000 people to have their compromised tax information sent back so they can further study their investigation.  The DOL has asked me for patience for two years.  There is a terrible immigrations problem and crossed identity data issue in all of CT’s databases.  All are updated by hand, none are cross linked.  The DMV seems to create new ways to get around their own rules daily.

My analysis of why the CT DOL made all those name changes was to kick me off unemployment early.  The first in a series of three name changes occurred in mid- December at the warning track.  I had money earmarked to be paid, but the State of CT claimed my benefit year started December 28, 2012,  Their corrected records, when my correct name is entered, show I started filing January 5th, 2013.  So they bumped me out early and changed my name two more times until the correct start date on the benefit year passed, to re-capture the small remainder federally assigned to me.  WHERE IS ALL THE FEDERAL MONEY CLAWED BACK FROM THE LONG TERM UNEMPLOYED?

Here is the letter I sent to the Governor in response to his requests for time.  Don’t get me wrong, I would vote for him again.  But his Information Systems Network are junk, and I think those who want to embarrass the Democrats are taking advantage of it.  Maybe as a ‘income supplement?’  I sincerely hope this State gets its act together soon.  It certainly is not from myself speaking up…

Gov. Malloy,  I think the ‘reflections of sound’ we discussed at your Norwalk Town Hall Meeting are radio and high frequency radio waves being broadcast to harass people.  I can track them and match them on a scanner. 

To the point, I was one of the people who got the bad DOL tax data.  But I have been getting bad data correspondence for two months, and for over a year, DOL technicians have asked me to be patient with them.  Patient for what I have no idea, until now.  I sincerely think you have an Immigrations Issue.  I have identity theft insurance.  I have had this problem since my father passed away in 2011.  I have had issues with the CT Probate Oversight and Judge Forgione.  I think your corruption runs deeper than at first glance.  Please fix these issues.  I have no unemployment, no job, a messed up work history, and now, identity theft again.

GOOD LUCK… AS I SAID BEFORE, IF TECHNICIANS AND POLITICIANS CONTINUE TO LAUGH AND NOT RESPOND, CONNECTICUT WILL NOT ONLY BE A NATIONAL JOKE, BUT OUR DECREPIT CONDITION CERTAINLY WON’T BE ABLE TO INSPIRE A CASE FOR NEW FEDERAL MONIES.

NOW GET IN THERE AND BANG ON THAT UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION DRUM!  Are you going to reset my claim now???

THE GOP MAKES CHRISTMAS A NOT SO WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR…

WHY NO WORKING PERSON WILL EVER VOTE FOR THE GOP AFTER 12/31/2013

draft 1

The GOP is making a terrible regarding unemployment compensation extensions for 1.3 million Americans this Christmas 2013…

Depression and Crime rise in times of economic uncertainty, and the GOP is further dividing the USA into have’s and have not’s.  This latest maneuver of failing to fund unemployment is an excuse to act on something the party doesn’t like looking at; its failure to address Immigrations, Tax Code Corrections, and Permanent Job Creation.  The GOP failed all summer to do anything productive.  The GOP failed when it shut the government down, destroying economic progress and setting up this current issue.  The pain that is about to be created is hanging over the GOP like a guillotine over their heads.  If the GOP simply proposed to EXTEND THE SCALING OF WEEKLY SOCIAL SECURITY CONTRIBUTIONS TO PEOPLE MAKING OVER $100,000 PER YEAR, THIS SITUATION WOULD NOT EXIST.  But because the GOP has no courage, unemployment funding, SNAP, FOOD STAMPS and other critical subsidies must wither, or worse; have their budgets sacrificed to protect lobbying interests.

There are no good jobs out there this time of year; it’s too close to Christmas.  Further, no corporation will hold seasonal employees past January, due to the normal spending contractions consumers feel when their December credit card bills arrive.  This is historical fact.  Finally, any small part-time or low wage jobs are seasonally scooped up by students off on break or home for the holidays.  They are naturally willing to accept temporary conditions because it fits with school plans.  These are not good jobs…

WHAT COULD THE GOP POSSIBLY BE THINKING?  If the GOP really wanted to cause this pain for working America, they should have cut funding after Thanksgiving.  They could also propose funding the extensions until January 31, 2014.  Each option, one considerate, one sadistic, would give the job seeker clarity on their budget and needs assessment.  Each of these options would also give the labor force time to ‘adjust’ to the forced labor dumped upon them.  Of course, the job creators will love not having to give raises to current employees because of the new set of desperate workers frantically searching for work.

America needs skills re-training that dovetails with their respective employment databases.  Currently, the DOL recommends things that have historically worked for job seekers, NOT WHAT TYPES OF SKILLS ARE BEING DEMANDED IN REAL TIME.  And no database sets an unemployed worker on a point to point path, starting with a real job opening in their current database, working backwards to skills training and funding for that training, all along asking the question, ‘Is this timeline feasible?’  Most often, by the time the new skill is acquired, the job opening or job trend has passed by or closed off.  Obstinate thinking like this further demeans the unemployed, and makes inefficient use of State and Government Funding.

Here is my recent experience of being trapped by the GOP ignorance machine.  Thankfully, there are considerate people on both sides of this issue.  But all are powerless to stop the Menacing Bully GOP tactic of crashing this recovery AT ALL COSTS because they just don’t like The White House’s and DNC’s programs.

To the GOP and Tea Party Members:  Good Luck when you get back to your local districts.  Your embryonic safety zone of DC will be unable to support you in your ‘Real Worlds.’

I wanted to send a quick note in regards to the CT DOL letter I just received.  I have not exhausted my 52-week claim.  I worked for three weeks, and was unjustly terminated by Bristol Paving.  I won my hearing, for the number one reason of ‘NO PARTICIPATION’ by Bristol Paving.  I was also threatened with an appeal of my DOL claim by the owner against my unpaid labor hour claim, which I dropped to avoid a nasty situation.  Looks like the GOP has granted his wish…

COMMENT:  15 minutes may be a small amount to complain about, but THE LAW IS THE LAW…

When my unemployment compensation was re-instated, I received a letter which stated I had six months of claim time left overall, and I should re-apply after December 31, 2013.  The letter I received today made no mention of reapplication, just benefit termination.  I feel like I shouldn’t buy any Christmas presents now.  Wonder how that will go over.

My family has been making a total mess of my deceased father’s family business, and also with probate court.  My complaint is being heard next week.  I have chosen to file a written complaint only because if I physically testify, I may be asked about business activities which will cause permanent relational damage.

I will be applying after December 31, 2013, and I EXPECT reinstatement of benefits according to the letter sent to me by the CT DOL, which I saved.  I have been applying to three jobs per week, as directed.  I have also been preparing to take my Project+ Comp / TIA test.  This test costs $265 to take.  I am planning to wait until after the holiday to register and purchase my voucher, to enable me another credit cycle to pay this bill.

I realize these are difficult times, but this is exactly why I am writing this letter.  As of right now, Christmas is Cancelled.

Sincerely,

Anthony Maisano III

THE CT DOL WROTE A KIND RESPONSE BACK, TEEING UP THE CONUNDRUM CREATED BY THE U.S. GOP…

 Subject: RE: quick note

When an unemployment claim is filed it is set up for a one year time span called a Benefit Year (BYE) in which a person is payable for 26 weeks of regular state unemployment or until the end of the BYE at which time a new claim should be filed to see if they are payable for a new BYE. Normally, that is all that would be paid but since 2008 the federal government has had an extension, but unless Congress takes new actions that extension will end as of 12/28/13.
In your case a claim was filed effective 12/30/12 setting up a BYE of 12/28/13. You were paid 26 weeks of regular state unemployment ending as of 6/29/13. Since that time you have been paid on the federal extension but the last week that will be paid is for 12/28/13. Since your BYE ends as of 12/28/13 the next week you would call your TeleBenefits line and select option # 3 to file a new claim to see if you can be paid a new 26 weeks of regular state unemployment. We can never tell anyone in advance if they would be payable a claim must be filed.
Sincerely,  CT DOL

I understand, sir.  And I apologize for the harsh words.  But the three weeks working for Bristol Paving and the DOL hearing that followed, coupled with my family situation [not paying creditors makes things difficult for all with the same name], has made me become ultra cautious.  Still and all, this GOP opinion doesn’t give a whole lot of clarity for Christmas spending.Further, I had to float three to four weeks out of my savings before the ‘big machine’ heard my wrongful termination.  WHAT SEASONAL JOB WOULD HIRE ME FOR 2 TO 4 WEEKS, STARTING TODAY, 12/13/2013, THEN ENABLE ME TO BE IN ANY BETTER CT DOL SITUATION AFTERWARDS?

The DOL needs to be protective of its funds, no doubt.  But, I have to be protective of my life.  I don’t think I will be voting for the GOP any time soon…

Respectfully,

Anthony Maisano III

Apologies for stealing the microphone on this one, and I can only hope I speak accurately for 1.3 million Americans that will be affected by this GOP blunder.

 

Don’t Shoot! We have the same perspective…

When will the 98% see true value creation in their life accounts?

draft 1

It would seem I am jumping into the shark tank, but I would encourage observers to look behind the VooDoo the GOP hecklers are creating.  Big government fear is the fake hole in the floor filled with pillows, or the anima-tronics wax museum special effects oozing with red liquid corn syrup.  A giant illusion generated to scare the travelers and natives alike.  Health care reform is exactly that– a market creation tool to enable total capitalistic expansion and new player entry.  Welcome to the world people!  True, this new marketplace is different from walking to the corner block and buying health, auto and home insurance from three different boutique shop owners; who you just sat next to at morning breakfast at the local diner.  Value needs to be created throughout all economic classes because the working public has spending needs and concerns of more impact on the economy than the chip-stacking 2% who wish to bully the rest by the power of their portfolio.  The effect of GOP economics IS the definition of the Master / Slave relationship creation.  Funny we punish Paula Dean when she is the mouthpiece of MANY 2%’ers, regardless of the color of the other 98%…

The real scare is the increase of situations like D.C., Newtown, Colorado, fill in the blank, is the increasing rate of their occurrence.  Regardless of psychological classification, it’s not the video games; it is the reality of human condition that our Wayne LaPierres’ are creating.  Frustration that rises to the level of causing harm to fellow human beings is a response to the ‘Your My Slave’ mind programming that has been forced into the 98%’s brain cells during this past ‘recovery.’  ‘Hear that voice in your ear?’  The feeling of never getting out of the pit weighs heavy on the American public.  The drama of the situation manifests itself in the bound and tied shackles that even prevent President Obama from ‘taking a long moment of silence’ for the victims of the latest D.C. Tragedy.  It’s not becoming business as usual; it illustrates a pattern of unwillingness of the GOP led Congress to do what is best for the majority of the people who have voted.  Factional groups must have a voice in a democracy, but they cannot be allowed to write or PURCHASE the scripted parts for the hard-working Americans.  The GOP knows for them, their theater is just illusion.  After getting a good adrenaline bump from their own creation, they can go home… but for the rest, roles are cast and until Congress becomes better stewards of human life.  98% are doomed to wander around in this B-movie Zombie Apocalypse, reading opinions of how America is failing instead of building a foundation for real prosperity.

Let’s jump OVER the shark tank instead…  Apologies, Mr. Forbes, for hijacking your forum.
