The Scrooges of this holiday are definitely those congressional folk in the House who cut off unemployment benefits. You see, unemployment benefits are for people who actually worked. It is the little compensation for them unfortunately being let go under unforseeable circumstances.
But noooo, helping people to provide barest essentials to their family is bad welfare.
You see the gainfully employed Republicans and a handful of sorry as Democrats think that cutting off assistance will save the economy from higher debt. But an unstable and unhappy citizen will actually cause the economy to tank further. Intent and will are mug.
You would think that folk would want the unemployed to give their families nice gifts such as food, clothing and shelter? But why do I apply such a decent word as "think" to these people?
I stopped writing a Christmas list to Santa ever since Santa was a 6'1' black man and 5 foot sister known as my parents. But on this one, I hope to entertain the fantasy one that ensures all of your requests come true. I swear I've been good this year.
Please Santa, can I put these repulsive political whores by a smelly burning trashcan of dog poop and rotten food on a below freezing night? Then give them a ration of thick old cheese sandwiches that will lock their bowels until 4 am when they wake up in a cold sweat with diarrhea and nowhere to shit. I will allot them their raggedy agenda of about 500 pages of bull as their pillow and covers. Let them roast on that as they sing Old Dixie songs to a rabid-dog.
