99ers HR 589 Supporters, What Would Jesus Say

Well there must be an election coming up as the buzz about Washington DC once again is jobs, jobs, jobs.  403,000 people filed new jobless claims last week. 

Unions are boycotting “Right to Work” states, expounding quite honestly that what “Right to Work” really means is the right to work for a substandard wage which can only drive down our standard of living.

The sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona is reporting that illegals are still crossing our border by the hundreds of thousands.  These illegals are at present working 30 million U.S. jobs at below minimum wage, thus further driving down our standard of living. 

The corporations continue to receive tax breaks for sending our jobs overseas. 

United States stimulus monies that are supposed to be creating jobs in the United States are being spent in other countries like China by companies like General Electric, who are establishing a green energy industrial base, not in the U.S. but overseas, again further driving down our standard of living.

The gap between the middle class and the top 1% continues to grow as more middle class living wage jobs are being eliminated through corporate downsizing, thus further lowering our standard of living.

Today is Easter Sunday and not a lot of 99ers will be celebrating.  We have no eggs to hide or nowhere to hide them though many are intent on ambushing the Easter Bunny and having hasenpfeffer for dinner. 

All joking aside it is Easter, the day of the resurrection and the promise of a new day.  My greatest hope is to see one Easter Project accomplished and if not making the mainstream news, at least having a video of the event to post on our site.  If not I will not be discouraged, nor dissuaded as apathy is the nourishment of defeat.

I will end my article today with a parable that I will tell it to you today.

A 99er who had lost his job, his home, and even his family was walking the city streets on a cold spring evening.  He was at the end of his rope and was indeed considering suicide, when he heard singing.  It was beautiful music and as he followed the sound he realized it was indeed a hymn.  In discovering its source he found himself standing in front of a church and the desire to enter and become a part of the warmth and joy within was overwhelming. 

As he walked into the church the congregation turned and stared.  He went right down to the front pew as he wanted to be surrounded by the love.  One of the good Christians sitting in the front row looked up at him standing there in his worn and dirty clothes and said, “There is no room in the front pew.”  He went to the middle row where the good Christians by then had spread out across the pew.  The one on the end looked up and said, “There is no room here.”  So he went to the back row.  It was obvious there was room, but of course the good Christian on the end looked up and said, “There is no room here for you.” 

He stepped out of the church and stood on the steps staring at the doors as the singing recommenced.  As he began to openly weep he felt a hand upon his shoulder.  He turned and looked and it was Jesus Christ himself standing there.  Jesus said, “Do not despair my son; for a long time now there hasn’t been room in there for me either.”

Happy Easter 99ers and my God keep and bless each and every one of you.

    Beautiful parable, Henry, but also kinda sad. God Bless you and yours, this fine Easter morning.

  2. Tim says:

    Happy Easter Henry to you and your family.. hope we see some good news today.

    • Kat says:

      I love the parable Henry! I think is so true. Have a Happy Easter everyone, make it the best you can. Let’s work for an even better one next year.

  3. Grumpy says:

    I’m sure that sneering at Christians on Easter will win you many supporters.

    Would you like a true story instead of a parable? There are several churches in the LA area (and probably many more elsewhere) that have programs to pay your rent if you lose your job. Fact, not fiction: I personally know two people who didn’t lose their apartments thanks to these programs that covered their rent for two months.

    Are you sure your 99er walked into a church? It sounds more like a visit to the DNC…

    • Henry Shivley - OR says:

      Grumpy,
      You’re goddamn right he was a 99er and though there are a lot of churches doing good things there are also a plenty where the hypocrites in our government congregate in an effort to reaffirm the allusion that they are good god fearing folk, when in fact they are uncaring, two faced, forked tongue misery makers. Only a fricking imbecile or a troll would attack an Easter parable meant as a euphemism between friends.
      Are you even a 99er? If not, maybe you ought to find somewhere else to play.

  4. JustUs says:

    Realistically sad…
    You meant the ‘Good’ Republican who claim the faith (as to not offend Christians, I’m sure). :)
    Happy Easter!

  5. Henry Shivley - OR says:

    i’m going to tell you guys something. The 99ers on this site are way past sick and tired of the retards in the false left-right paradigm. If you want to put down Republicans or Democrats in order to further perpetuate the lie, do it somewhere else.

    • Kat says:

      I am with you Henry! Only an idiot would make this kind of comment, it’s stupid to believe that 2 months of rent would keep many people from losing their apartments. Anyone this lame should keep their thoughts to themself to expose their complete and utter stupidity.

  6. Angel-NYC says:

    Love the parable, Henry. So true.
    Happy Easter.

    HOBO UP – 2011 Travesty
    Ask any Hobo about economics and they say a good can opener and a water proof flint box is essential. So look to the GOP TEA PARTY HOUSE to provide these items instead of Tier 5. The Debut of Country Carl’s song Hobo Up – Lyrics Writen by Country Carl and Music by Beau Robinson has been released. Country Carl says the Song is the National Anthem for the Homeless and 99ers about to be Homeless.

    Kick this town, find the tracks
    Start over again and pass the hat
    Jump a bus if you have the cash
    Or use your truck until it’s out of gas

    Hobo Up
    Take a good friend
    Hobo Up
    This is not the end
    Hobo Up
    break a leg
    Hobo Up
    Open roads are for the brave

    Glad to find you- my husband and I are both 99ers, 59 years old and darned scared! Alot of people don’t even know what a 99er is! Just to know you are here and understand helps- God bless you and lets hope a miracle happens! and in the meantime we will keep emailing the senators and congress people all the time on this issue!! and also keep trying to figure out how to support ourselves in this horrid economy!

  9. Marc says:

    Henry,
    Your parable was right on!
    I am a 23 year Former church employee let go in 2009 due to closure of both churches.

    Although i know your parable was intended in another light, let me just say i was let go without notice and denied benefits… the state stepped in and approved me….

    Your poster was making mention of a pastoral discretionary fund used to help those in need..

    After 23 years of loyal employment i was in need after they let me go, i was put out on the street as a single dad with a young daughter, not once did they call to see how we are, not once did they acknowledge my years of employment and not once did they own up to the fact
    they were wrong in denying my benefits stating my job was religious in nature… i was a custodian… the state found that ridiculous and awarded me my u.i.b.

    they just needed to tell the truth, pledges were down, the congregation was dwindling, and the economy was effecting thier envelopes…
    I could have accepted that… instead i was made the goat.. oh my how Christian…

  12. demetri says:

  13. TroyComic says:

    Jesus would say, “Learn a trade like say a carpenter.”
