Updated 3:25 p.m. | An Indiana man has been arrested by the FBI for allegedly threatening to kill Speaker John A. Boehner over his refusal to pass an unemployment extension, according to court filings.

Brandon J. Thompson, 32, of New Castle, Ind., faces federal charges for allegedly making email and telephone threats to an elected official, according to a news release. FBI agents arrested Thompson at his home Thursday night, where he admitted to the charges, according to a criminal complaint. He faced a U.S. magistrate judge on Friday morning.

Thompson lost his $341-a-week unemployment insurance check in January, and blamed Boehner for the lack of an unemployment extension, according to the complaint.

He is accused of obtaining Boehner’s wife’s personal cellphone number and leaving voice mail messages in early May to relay several threats against the speaker, stating among other things that he would “get his hands on him,” and “rip his fucking head off,” because he “shoulda extended unemployment insurance.”

On May 1, Boehner’s wife Debbie reported to Capitol Police that she received a threatening voice mail attacking the Ohio congressman for not passing an unemployment extension.

“I’m coming after your oompa loompa fucking husband. He should … he shoulda extended unemployment insurance. Now it’s too late. Imma rip his fucking head off,” said the voice on the message.

Five days later, Boehner’s wife again notified the Capitol Police of an eerily similar message: “You tell you husband to redo the unemployment extension because I’m going to come for him. I’m going to rip his fucking head off. He’s not untouchable. I will get my hands on him.”

FBI agents tracked the number to Thompson. In the course of the investigation, agents also found that Thompson is the neighbor of another man who was investigated because his IP address matched that of a threatening email sent to Boehner though his office’s website.

Here’s the all-caps message sent through the contact form on Boehner’s website: “WELL YOU DRUNK JOHN BIN LADEN IT’S TIME TO TAKE YOU OUT MOTHERFUCKER YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH 2.7 MILLION PEOPLES LIVES I AM GOING TO TAKE YOURS YOU WILL NEVER SEE IT COMING WITH MY SNIPER RIFLE WERE YOU SOON :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-).

Investigators believe Thompson logged on to his neighbor’s unencrypted wireless router to make the threat, according to the criminal complaint.

The owner of the wireless router told investigators that Thompson had pulled a gun on a debt collector approximately four years ago.

Thompson had received unemployment checks of $341 per week until Jan. 11. The last emergency unemployment benefits extension expired in December, and an effort to revive the benefits has been heated on Capitol Hill ever since.

Boehner has so far refused to allow a vote on an unemployment extension. His office declined to comment on the arrest.

Phone records show 19 calls made from a phone owned by Thompson to Boehner’s wife’s cellphone between April 8 and May 6, according to the complaint. Thompson has had five protective orders against him, filed in 2001, 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2014.

“Free speech is the cornerstone of our democracy but threats of violence have no place in our civil society,” said Joseph H. Hogsett, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, in a statement. “People who are inclined to make them need to know that they violate the law and they will be aggressively pursued.”

Threats to members of Congress are a common occurrence, especially during times of heated political debate. Yet many go unsolved because they are often difficult to investigate.

      • Rainier

        .
        Can’t believe I’m saying this but: way to go Boehner..Thanks for saving our money and standing up to societal leeches like Thompson.

        Now will you PLEASE stop talking about Immigration reform of ANY flavor??! Use the same principles!
        .

        • Icare

          Hmmmm…. Are you an illegal immigrant??

          • Rainier

            Only if I travel to Mexico without stopping at the Border to “check in”. I understand getting caught down there is tantamount to being trapped in an inner circle of hell.

          • Jack Everett

            You Mexican illegals should know all about it.

        • john ross

          Are you serious ? Saving money did you hear about the tax bill cut that he is working on for rich people

          • Rainier

            Right, got carried away, fixed it.

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            Have you or anybody you know, ever worked for a poor person?

          • F M

            Yeah. I did. Well, he was rich when I went to work for him. By the time Uncle Sam got done with him he was poor. Then I got laid off.

          • Jack Everett

            Your welfare is not a job title.

          • donna

            Then he was a terrible business man.

          • hiltonsgnlvr

            Most of Obama’s base are not interested in working. And Boehner is their cheer leader.

          • john ross

            our problem that republicans wanna help only the rich without terms ,im ok with tge tax cut only if they wanna keep there business inside the country and hire only Americans but thats not the case and you know it , all they care about who is funding there campaign

          • Bronx_Native

            If you think your problem is efforts to help businesses keep more of their profits so they have incentives to hire more Americans and make more profits, you sound like a non-worker receiving government payments and not interested in a better future for America.

          • Jack Everett

            The unemployed are still waiting for those trickle down jobs to trickle down.

          • karen

            This man as well as the 3.7 million American’s who have lost
            their benefits are frustrated. The sad thing about it is we are spending
            billions of tax payers dollars to assist other countries but not helping our
            own. The people of Chicago are at war with the gang bangers why hasn’t the
            military been sent there? America has become such a disappointment. Also to create jobs it may take years before they materalize.

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            The main group that has had income increase under Obama is the top 10%. It is a myth that democrats are for the poor. How democrats bridge the income gap is to take away money from rich versus insuring our economy is thriving and growing. So why is it that the top 10% has gained the most under Obama (democrats)?

          • john ross

            I agree with you , I’m not a democrats ,but republicans are hypocrites , they invented the unemployment extension and now they say it’s wrong just to hurt democrats , by the way I own a business but that doesn’t mean I should be careless

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            Example of democrat hypocrisy: Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of GE, a big contributor to Obama. He was appointed to a
            “Jobs Council” that Obama set up, while he on the jobs council he moved all kinds of jobs to China: http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=31182

            They proved this with their Benghazi campaign funding scam.

            Yes..

          • donna

            I know a lot of poor people slaving for rich people. What is your point? Rich people do not create jobs, That is a fantasy. Poor people make rich people wealthy. Without employees, corporations would not earn a nickle, yet somehow they have twisted the script to convince people like you that they are doing Americans a favor by allowing us to work for them. The truth of the matter is we were much better off with smaller, neighborhood businesses owned by members of the middle class, who lived among us and paid us a fair wage and didn’t require billions of dollars in tax cuts in return.

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            So, rich people do not create jobs? Why did Obama bail out GM and Chrysler then? You are better off having neighborhood grocery stores vs chain stores? Neighborhood food stores are cheaper?

          • Jack Everett

            None of the stores are cheaper where I live they are owned by rag heads because Americans are not allowed the same small business loans these invaders are.

          • Jack Everett

            Most wealth in America today is inherited. These corporate pigs didn’t do anything to earn it and have no idea how to live a life without buying one.

          • FedUpInNJ

            And please remember BOTH parties want the tax break bill signed! Guess it NEVER was about “job creation” huh? Boehner and Reid are both liars who should be impeached.

        • ChinMullet

          No mugshots. I wonder why? :)

          • DariusPicard

            he is being trained to do the job and will be released when it is time.

          • Reuben Hyman

            My thought exactly! Why? Probably fake story!

        • erick

          Will Boehner keep giving tax breaks to corporation that outsource jobs overseas? Will Boehner give more bail out money to drug money laundering wall street banks?

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            Boehner only runs the house of reps. It takes the House, Senate and pres to pass a law. So, why don’t you mention Reid and Obama?

          • Jack Frost

            That would be inconvenient.

          • Carol Findlay

            Um, neither Reid nor Obama are obstructing EUC, so why would either need to be mentioned? It can’t get past JB, or haven’t you been reading every single story to come out since December 28th, even before the Senate passed it? Bohner’s been the obstruction since day-damn-one.

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            The comment I responded didn’t mention EUC. Why don’t read the comment I responded to and then maybe you won’t make another irreverent comment.

          • Jack Everett

            Creating jobs is not giving more welfare to Wall Street.

          • FedUpInNJ

            At least he is smart enough to do it when nobody’s looking. Boehner shouves your face in poverty and laughs.

          • Carol Findlay

            The obstructionism that is happening that drove this guy to the bitter edge is obstruction of EUC. Why didn’t you bother to read the article?

            Again, within the context of the article, neither Reid nor Obama have EVER obstructed EUC. Having a hard time picking a topic or do you just want to talk about everything all at once?

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            I responded to a comment that did not even mention EUC. I pointed out how our government works. If that is talking about everything then you may need some laxatives. BTW Reid has obstructed over 30 bills concerning our economy (from the house), so why you get an enema, while your at it? My comment wasn’t concerning EUC; seems like you might be off subject.

          • Carol Findlay

            This guy threatened Boehner over EUC. Reid and Obama have never obstructed EUC. I have no idea what laxatives or enemas have to do with EUC. They do have something to do with obstruction, but not political obstruction. You’re a vivid illustration of what happens when kids fall asleep in class.

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            I read the story and just responded to a comment that didn’t mentioned EUC to explain how how government works.Maybe he wouldn’t need UC if Reid didn’t obstruct 30 plus bills to improve our economy and Obama displayed leadership and did something positive for our economy and country. I went to Catholic school for 12 years and wasn’t allowed to fall asleep. I am tired of just the one sided story that only the right is obstructing and the other is just doing their best, it is. So, in your vivid illustration, I am the student and you are the teacher? How liberal of you, why do people normally, need laxatives and/or an enema? Can’t figure it out, maybe you have been sleeping.

          • FedUpInNJ

            Because Reid already passed a bill and Obama has requested several times it be brought to the floor for a vote. I guess you missed that news Bob USA (ret)?

          • Carol Findlay

            I think Bob routinely misses a great many things.

          Interesting. So how long did was Sen Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff permitted to enjoy child p **or ** n on state owned computers?

          Sen.

(ie child p ** or *** n and prostitution)

          When will the investigations into child p **or **n at
          the Pentagon on state owned resume now that the man who was “threatening” someone has been addressed?

          Child p***o r ***n on state run computers verses threats.

            Wow!….. I’m impressed. BTW you misspelled my screen name genius. If your goal to become a proofreader is ever to be attained you should start by brushing up on your ability to correctly copy the name of the person to whom you are responding. Thanks for the chuckle.

          • Frank

            Well, I suppose the misspell was due to your lack of importance. I should have known that you are about as far from an atom as anyone could possibly get. I found it hilarious that you were telling someone that they had to go back to elementary school while at the same time you couldn’t construct a sentence. Your profile picture says it all my friend.

        I guess I have to agree with that since Liberalism is a mental disorder.

          A difference of opinion doesn’t qualify as a mental disorder.

        Hmmmmm, is that what the DNC media says when they first say that anyone violent must be a Tea Partier? By the way if you can, point to one instance of a TPer being violent……will be waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting.

        One other thing, Lerner and other higher ups in the IRS must have just on their own decided to target and audit conservatives right? It had NOTHING to do with Obama’s, Reid’s and Pelosi’s constant denigration against conservatives. Obama saying and I quote, “reward our friends and punish our enemies” is like all heart warming and stuff. Have you read any of the emails that were only released AFTER a lawsuit and were not released when Congress subpoenaed them? Not releasing emails when subpoenaed is a criminal offense.

        …Also, was it not him who spent 23 long years in that vile, anti-american, anti-semite, racist church (mosque) of “rev” Wright? The same “church” who gave that other vile pig, Louis Farrakhan a LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD for crying out loud.

        Did not Oblama state that he would listen to “rev” Wrights tapes to reinforce his thinking?

        Lets not forget, it was Oblama who had to admit back in 2008 that he was present when his “rev” (imam) who say these outrageous things?

      one psycho on the left for ever 1,000 on the right…

      • dtom2

        So you’re telling us that all those “knockout game” perps are on the right? Who knew?

        • Bob USAF(ret)

          They belong to the same union as the ones using “flash mobs” to rob stores.

      • chas40e

        Wow… All those dope heads in Colorado that trashed up the place are on the Right? Who knew?

      • Josey_Montana

        Facts? Even a suspect study from Berkeley?

      • Mi

        That is absolute BS. I can name numerous violent incidents that were committed in the USA alone by Leftist. In fact the Left has almost exclusive rights to that title. If it wasn’t for the lies perpetrated by the Leftist-controlled MSM this completely false idea about the Right would not exist.

      • tallron

        School shootings, Aurora movie shooter, Gabbie Guffords shooter, Ft Hood jihadists, all certifiable liberal/leftists. Like facts much?

      • Bob USAF(ret)

        So are you the “one” representing the left? According to the liberal media, I heard that Obama was the “one” before the 2008 election.

    • somegeye

      False, the FBI has arrested at least two people who threatened my congressional rep, Eric Cantor, in the last few years. Also, this isn’t a humiliation for the left. This man is obviously unstable and his political affiliation is irrelevant.

      • HarryObrian

        What’s Cantor got to do with Romney?? I know you were just sayin, but still…

        • somegeye

          “This is the fist time since 2008 that the FBI stepped in to do their job when there was a threat made against an Repub…” Sometimes you have to read all of the words to make sense of the response.

          • HarryObrian

            Touche’, but still what has Cantor got to do with Romney’s verbal attackers not being taken to task?
            Also sometimes better to answer the question….

        • SoIncredulous

          It’s the ol’ ‘bait and switch’. If you can’t answer the actual question, change the subject.

          I’m sure what somegeye meant to say was that there was “not a smidgen of proof’ that anyone made threats against Mr. Romney.

      • M_J_S

        No, it is very relevant. Fascists on the left have mental disorders. Hey, why not handle the fascists like the fascists handled the mentally disturbed?

      • erick

        Were the FBI agents wearing their J. Edgar Hoover dresses?

    • James Scott

      “The left” isn’t humiliated at all by a deranged man being stopped before he could do someone harm.

      • chas40e

        Oh… you mean they finally stopped Obama? Or, are you referring to Reid? I know they are both deranged, but I like to be specific…

        • James Scott

          We can all disagree with any politician we want, but that doesn’t make them “deranged.” However, threatening to murder someone falls into the category.

          • chas40e

            So, then we can all agree there is a difference between a “threat” and an ACTUAL MURDER like what took place in Fast And Furious?

            i will say it again… Obama, Reid, AND Holder are all DERANGED!

          • James Scott

            That’s nonsense, and has nothing to do with the topic.

          • chas40e

            Murder is murder… no matter the context… You people are terrified of the truth… It’s time to pay the piper!

          • James Scott

            As I have never threatened anyone, much less a public figure, I don’t know who “you people” are, and I have nothing to pay for.

          • chas40e

            Christians have NEVER blown a building up, murdered anyone, and have only stood up for what they believe is right… They are labeled “terrorists” “extremists” “trolls” and have taken threats, harassment, and have been stripped of their beliefs, because of Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson… And people like yourself that support them!

          • James Scott

            I happen to be a Christian, and neither have I ever blown a building up or murdered anyone, and neither myself nor any other Christian I know has ever been labeled a “terrorist” nor been “stripped of their beliefs.” That’s just crazy talk.

          • chas40e

            Crazy Talk?? Have you not listened to Janet Napolitano? Have you not read what they revealed about the Training Manual For the Dept. Of Homeland Security? Have you not listened at all???

            My God, man… Sir, I really think you need to open your eyes and ears…

          • James Scott

            I listen all the time. Most of what I hear, from both sides, is paranoid nonsense.

          • chas40e

            Paranoia?? So, the Dept of Homeland Security buying up billions of rounds of ammunition, wiping out the market of ammo, and then 10 months later the Bundy Ranch gets a stand off!! I do not believe in coincidences.

            That is the thing about “conspiracies”, you know.. It’s only a conspiracy until it happens. Then it becomes history.

            Do some research on HAARP. Google it, and see what you find… It will expose Global Warming conspiracy!

          • erick

            The NSA will find you and kill you.

          • James Scott

            I’ve read all about HAARP. It’s an antenna which uses the ionosphere to focus radio waves so they can penetrate to submarines submerged at depth. There’s no HAARP “weather control” or “mind control.” As for DHS, I have talked to many people and read many articles, and I believe the points summarized in this Breitbart report should dispel that particularly crazy conspiracy theory: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/04/04/The-Great-DHS-Ammunition-Stockpile-Myth

          • erick

            The NSA will find you and kill you.

          • erick

            That just goes to show you-which hand has the banana..

          • erick

            But certainly not the Alzheimer demented republican drug lord–Ronald Reagan.

          • Bob USAF(ret)

            Obama has been the president the past 5 years, that hasn’t done anything positive for our country. Reagan, hasn’t been pres for a while, and at least he brought down the USSR, which is trying to regroup while non leader Obama is our pres.

          • chas40e

            erick, get a clue… Reagan wasn’t a “drug lord”… You’re ignorance precedes you…

          • erick

            Under Ronald Reagan’s presidency Oliver North planned the sale of drugs to finance the Iran-Contra Affair from the basement of the white house..

          • chas40e

            That’s your “big claim”? Um… Look at the national debt right now… Do you really think that drugs were needed to fund the Iran-Contra Affair? Really?

            Also, you might want to look at your own statement. “Oliver North planned the sale…” Where is Reagan at in that statement?

            In addition, no one is innocent. Not even Reagan. I know the Right idolizes the man, but in all reality, both sides are guilty. Nevertheless, don’t criminalize a man that negotiated the fall of the USSR without firing a bullet. Not to mention, Reagan, unlike BO, was not a racist coward that armed agencies to fight the American population.

    • Lee29

      How do you know he was from the Left? Plenty of Righties lost their jobs and their unemployment benefits. And not all of them are stupid enough to blame Obama, instead of the real culprits — Boehner and the Tea Party.

      • Bob USAF(ret)

        So why is Boehner and the tea party responsible for plenty of people losing their jobs? Obama has been pres for five years and his policies are responsible for the stagnant economy.

  • Josey_Montana

    So there is a special law for threatening elected officials, huh?

    I guess the laws against threatening mere citizens aren’t good enough for Our Royal Masters!

    My liege!

    • matism

      And their GD Praetorian Guard will continue to grovel before them.

      • Josey_Montana

        Off with your head for calling that “grovelling”! They are butt kissing!

    • kmrod

      if he called you and said those same things, he also would have been arrested.

      • HarryObrian

        and released after a short time….

        • kmrod

          possibly, but that would depend on the exact threat and his ability to actually carry out the threat.

          • HarryObrian

            still released before any of that has been fully assessed.. The song “If I had a hammer” just came screaming into my head for some reason.

          • kmrod

            possibly, depending on his ability to get and pay for bail, which ties directly back to the exact threat and his ability to actually carry out the threat.

          • HarryObrian

            Bail?? 10% of what? 500? They should throw bail bondsmen to the alligators.

          • kmrod

            or 10% of $500,000 ……. again, it would depend on the exact threat and his ability to actually carry out the threat.

          • HarryObrian

            Let’s put it this way, from experience, if Joe Schmoe verbally threatened Joe Public and Schmoe had means and there were no witnesses then absolutely nothing but a talking to would happen to Schmoe unless Public had connections.

          • kmrod

            and that’s not what happened here… these threats were recorded.

            apples : apples man……. apples : apples

      • Josey_Montana

        So why the special law? They must be Special.

        And they are Special. Precious even.

        • kmrod

          no idea why there’s a special law because it should be covered under existing laws.

    • HarryObrian

      Well you can always get a restraining order and then wait a half hour for the unionized cops to show up when it’s been violated or buy a gun to protect yourself and go to jail for using it and have all your possessions taken away by civil forfeiture.

        So which third world countries score higher in health care and education? BTW, liberals run our education system.

      • Bob USAF(ret)

        I believe the rich white men they didn’t want to pay tax to was one King. So the only ones that fought the revolution were Rich White Men? So, what do you have against rich, white, men besides being
        White and Rich? Weren’t their some rich White Women married to these RICH White men? Would it be more PC to you if our country was found by Blacks, Indians and Hispanics, plus white men or would it really be super PC if the Chinese had helped out with our establishment as a country, also?

      Whereas the rest of us need the EUC in order to support ourselves while looking for work. I’ve never done a single drug in my life, not even pot. I need a job. Until someone decides to give someone over 45 a chance, I need an income. Once I’m homeless, I can’t get a job anymore, can I?

      • HarryObrian

        It’s hard, but I know some who have been out of work since 08 and were never qualified for unemployment because they had a small business in a state that gives no benefits to business owners. Most are working under the table to get by.

      • TheSoothsayer

        I sympathize with your plight and have been unemployed. I’m just saying I know this town and how people are. My mom worked at the hospital in this town and many of the people who came to the ER were addicted to prescription drugs and became violent if they didn’t get them, so the docs usually wrote them scripts for more
        painkillers.

        • Matthew Pieri

          yeah,god forbid the Doctors be smart and realize that it is far better for them to do the drugs and only hurt themselves instead of being criminals in a draconian system that forces these drug addicts to commit violence on the rest of us in the name of safety. failed policy and i salute the ER doctors for writing the scripts and lessing the public health hazard

          • HarryObrian

            “draconian system that forces these drug addicts to commit violence ”
            And your solution would be???

          • Matthew Pieri

            decriminalization and removal of profiteering….drug problem cures itself when all the crack heads and addicts OD. set aside public park area where they are to be quartered for their use of hard drugs, like how they used to lock them up in the parks overnight in Amsterdam. If they choose no treatment and choose the drug, then allow them all they want, then allow them a simple burial. it is time for personal responsibility, and if you want to do hard drugs, then you better figure out how to do them responsibly, cause we aren’t going to resuscitate or incarcerate you anymore.

          • HarryObrian

            Sounds wonderful and how is that working out in Amsterdam? This quick wiki expose would suggest not so well.

    Shouldn’t he be pissed at Obama? He wouldn’t need the unemployment if there were any damn jobs out there.

        • erick

          I viewed that segment of 60 minutes you referenced in that website address. If those unfortunate unemployed wanted to keep their jobs then they should had sex with their boss so they would have been promoted. If the lord intended them to prosper, then he would have given them rich parents. They had the same opportunity to select their parents as Paris Hilton had when she selected hers. John Boehner will solve this problem by having those useless eaters euthanized, cremated, then given back to their families in a jar with Heinrich Himmler’s autograph on the jar.

          My question exactly…

      • Carol Findlay

        For someone who’s calling everyone else a “worthless loser,” you seem to have all kinds of free time to post on this one article 20 times. Living in your mother’s basement, huh? Get a job.

        • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

          You caught me !!! LOL

        • Mexico Ron

          he claims to be at his business posting , but his ip address is a home account registered to his parents , whom he’s living with , would u like his Facebook info so you can see the truth of the troll.

          • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

            Yes Please provide both you m0ron !! I own a computer networking company and I will give you 10 grand to tell me the address at which I am posting from right now !!!! LOL

    • Carol Findlay

      I already know one woman whose husband committed suicide April 6th because of this. Father, grandfather, husband. He lost everything he worked for for the past 16 years, and just couldn’t take it anymore.

    • RevG

      Says an EBTbagger Leech.

      • Jim Rall

        Look, I understand your outrage but he has a point. When you make people desperate they will do desperate things. Only 10 percent of the EBT folks are mooching. What you should really be worried about is the 168 dollars a day in administrative costs that is the national average to keep a family unit on social services. That number incudes all the pay and benefits these unionized gov workers make… plus the facilities cost. That works out to 5000 dollars plus per month to give people less than 1000 dollars in benefits (only single moms), 400 if your single. So your tax money is going to pay for all these gov workers benefits and such… yet your worried about the 500 dollars to feed someone…. think about it.

      • Mexico Ron

      After Holder and Obama are arrested for selling guns to Mexican drug lords and getting hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens killed and 2 border agents killed. And after they are arrested for failing in their constitutional duties. And after they are arrested for ignoring and rewriting laws.

  • RevG

    I find it funny how the liberals posting on this thread have a problem with the idiot being arrested. A Terror Threat (placing a person in fear for their life ) against a Rep. or Senator or the POtuS in office, is a Felony. This liberal made a choice, get off his rear and do something to earn a living or let the government support him with three hot’s and a cot in a cell block.
    He chose the cell block I suppose,

            Last I checked, it wasn’t Republicans trying to make the government take control of everything or sic’ing it on everyone who disagrees with them.

          • raideristic

            And the difference between you and a babbling idiot? Yeah, that’s right.

          • Chubby Freen

            Actually, fascism is a form of socialism in which the govt forms partnerships with the owners of said nation’s means of productivity, generally to the detriment of its own people. Examples are Hitler’s administration and IG Farben; another is the Obama administration’s partnership with Solyndra, Wall Street banks, etc

            Fascism? You mean the collusion of big government and big business? I’ll grant you that the Republican leadership is fascist. But so is the ENTIRE Democrat party.

    Unless one acts in some way on a “threat”, aren’t a person words protected by the 1st Amendment?

    • Jim Rall

      Yes but they made an exception for political officials…. apparently their skin is worth more than ours.

    • txroadhouse1

      Not when it is a threat to harm. It is called a “terroristic threat” and can sometimes get you in just as much trouble as the actual act. People need to be careful what they say on these boards because they are all being watched for things like that and it will get flagged. I understand perfectly well the frustration but that will only get you in hot water for sure. There is a very fine line between threat and free speech.

  • Berto Reyno

    does anyone know how th UI extension will work ? I am running out of benefits on JUne7th , will the extension help me get more weeks? I filed on dec 2013

    • MarineOutOfWork

      The way it is structured, It would be retro from Dec. 28th till end of May….so by June 7th, your screwed. Sorry Bro.

      • Berto Reyno

        are u sure? how good is that then to all the peep that will lose their bennies after may??

    • Jim Rall

      It depends… I would plan on learning about Social Services… it will take you 3 weeks to a month to get help from them. Make sure you get everything in writing and receipts for any paperwork you are going to be responsible for. Also be aware that you’re going to get a lot less help from them than you think you’re going to get.

      • Berto Reyno

        are u really sure? how good is that then to all the peep that will lose their bennies after may??

        • Jim Rall

          You could get 200 dollars per month in SNAP… but it depends on the state to a point when it comes to other bennefits. If you’re single you may get about 450 dollars a month most of which will have to go to rent (if you’re a renter) leaving you with about 100 or so in cash. You may say “I’ll grab a BS job at min pay”… that’s fine if that’s what you do for a living. But be carful, if you’re a professional who may have to travel to an interview you could get yourself fired from that BS job, which, if you’re in NY will get you sanctioned for 90 days (no benefits other than SNAP). My point is that you need to make calls and search the internet to educated yourself. Many people are resorting to Social Services because of the 26 weeks and the fact that most people are averaging up to 3 years before getting work, especially if you’re a tech Pro… if you sweep floors… no problem.

          • Berto Reyno

            right , but if the extension passes, will I be elgible??

  • George Rodriguez

    He wont be the last one.. give it time

    I don’t think he should have said those things but imagine what the past months have been like for him to be at that point I’m sure he is not the only one who feels that way this p.o.s boehner needs a reality check now he is either gonna have to consider it or tell his corporate amigos why he cant deliver what they want

  • Carol Findlay

    If you push to give another $156 BILLION in rich people tax cuts, insist there is no offset, and then block for five friggin months a vital lifeline that costs just $6.5 billion, insisting it is offset, you’re going to rile the very people you’ve driven to the ragged edge. That’s common sense.

    • dave_ct

      You should find a job, live within your means (dont spend every cent you earn), save a few dollars a week, pay your bills and someday, perhaps in 25 to 30 years, you’ll have a little nest egg saved. You dont need to go out to the bar every time you get a couple bucks and you dont need to buy every new smart phone and game system that is introduced

        Work hard and be frugal. After you die from overwork and malnutrition you will get your reward in the next life.

        • dave_ct

          no…keep spending everything you “earn” because barack will take care of you no matter what happens. Besides, the strategy of spending everything and not saving has worked for millions upon millions of people.

    • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

      Hey Carol !!! The freebies you get now come from those “rich people”. Here is a newsflash for you !!! THE GUBMINT DOESN’T HAVE ANY MONEY !!!! They steal it from the working man.

    • richcreamerybutter

      Hey, corporate jobs can’t outsource themselves you know!

  • Jim Rall

    What does the speaker expect… when you make people desperate, they do desperate things. When we give 8+ billion dollars to countries that don’t even like us, yet screw over our own people because of jobs going offshore, I have to wonder where these elected a—holes have their priorities.

LOL You people are beyond pathetic in your stupidity… You can’t compete and think someone is just going to “give” you something… Looks like the reality check is becoming REAL !!!

    • tinge

      All they need to do is stop looking for work. My understanding, as far as the government definition goes, is then they magically won’t be “unemployed” anymore.

      smartest comment I’ve seen so far!

      • Reconmarine7

        You’re hanging out in the wrong places it seems.

      • http://www.bellesansmerci.weebly.com Bella

        Thank you, Jessica. At least I asked if the Boehners were alright, no? I mean, I gave the Speaker about as much importance as he gives the nearly 3 million people he forsakes. Geez Louise. I am actually more scared of what lengths some will go to survive. What if people start rioting, looting or even killing? I mean, c’mon. Reagan was shot, remember? And Reagan didn’t even piss off anyone.

      • Jessica

        A JOB is hard to get when you’ve been unemployed and as I’ve posted a million times on here…some of us are out of work at no fault of our own so these comments really bother me. I was injured at work and no one will hire me with my injury–I’ve applied for 60 positions!

        • Reconmarine7

          Hit the send button or are you afraid to? Might actually get a job.

          • Jessica

            wtf does that even mean? I’ve had 3 interviews…no luck…I’ve applied for jobs that I wouldn’t normally take because I HAVE to get an income…I’m a college graduate with a good head on my shoulders who fell on hard times…this is my first and hopefully only time dealing with unemployment. Its easy for people such as yourself to make comments as you do when you have a job and a way to support your family…this is of no concern to you….I don’t have $ flowing in other than the whopping $11 an hr my husband makes. Our kids are both special needs, I’ve worked every day of my life since the age of 14…so don’t sit there and judge my life because I don’t give a lick about your opinion…..if you ever lost your job and needed help I’d pray for you not tear you down.

          • Reconmarine7

            Your comments PROVE that you don’t have a good head on your shoulders. It does sound like you’re down on your luck however. Maybe you should take a look at the people you voted into office and talk to them.

          • Jim Rall

            I’m a former Marine Pilot [Cherry Point] and I think you make some good points, but you also make some points that well… lets just say we’re fellow Marines & Green, and leave it at that.

            Perhaps looking harder for work instead of trolling websites? Just a thought.

          • Jim Rall

            If you’re going to make a comment, then at least know what your talking about. Professionals know what companies they can send resumes to… they also know that when you stray from your field, you go to the bottom of the stack. I’m an aerospace engineer and just how many jobs do think I can put in for… just as an example. I have specific expertise in my field… but even then, if I put in for jobs in my field outside my specialty, I’m put to the bottom of the stack. We’ve lost at least 30 million careers since NAFTA was signed by Clinton.

          • עמיחי

            Uh….I have no idea what your post has to do with me saying her priorities are not aligned with her stated goals.

          • Jim Rall

            If she is a college grad then she will send out resumes and WAIT… there are only going to be so many resume you can send out in a week do to the number of jobs in a specific specialty… your comment about goals is not appropriate. How about you ask her what her goals are before telling her they are misguided.

          • עמיחי

            She didn’t say what her specialty is, so you’re speculating just as much as I am. I’m a college grad too, with a degree in IT. I get no less than 6 emails a week from recruiters looking to hire me for projects. Most are out of my geographic area, but if my kids were hungry I’d jump. In fact, today I finished my first week at a new company. My commute went from 26 miles/day to 202 miles/day. I spend 8hrs at work & 4hrs commuting until I raise the money to move. This job pays 1/3 more than my last one, so it won’t take long. There is certainly short-term difficulty for me, but it will be better in the long-run.
            If Jessica’s degree is in “Visual Arts” or “Philosophy” and she lives in Podunk, MS, then her marketability isn’t going to be that great. Simply being a college grad isn’t going to do the trick. If you don’t have what the industry wants, you’re going to be sitting at home.

        • Jim Rall

          Read Mark Levin’s new book. He talks about this. Congress should be limited to two terms and should not get any benefits from serving in gov for such a short time. They should also not be allowed to vote themselves raises and such.

    • Chimookman

      The help they need is a good economy and jobs, which everything done in the last 5 years has prevented. As long as BHO refuses to work with Congress, it is on him.

        Oh, that’s right. Like the 156 billion tax cuts they propose, no?

        • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

          Or maybe that much given to “green” companies that are now out of business ?

        • Chimookman

          Tax revenue is up dramatically, thanks to the additional non-income taxes and fees. Retaining existing tax rates is not a tax cut. Sequestration is a result of Obama’s own commission recommending it as the only way to keep us from defaulting on national debt. More uninformed woman comments. 20s something who things the government is there to take care of you for life.

        • עמיחי

          You do realize that 2013 provided the largest amount of tax revenue in history, right? $2.7 TRILLION in taxes! Yeah, I think we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem.

    • Jim Rall

      It’s more than 3 million….

    • Me

      I would be happy to help. First I would rescind an obscene amount of laws, rules, and regulations. Then I would lower taxes, and get out of the way of business by making as many jobs that were governmental disappear and/or let the private business take over; and that is just for my first day.

      • Jim Rall

        It’s more than that… H1B visa’s are killing high tech. GE has all it’s engineering analysis for its aircraft engines and lousy air conditioners done in India and Brazil.

      • עמיחי

        Yeah, she’s GOT to be an agenda driven liberal. I live in a state with some of the most lax gun laws in the country, and we can’t bring a gun to ANY political gathering, whether there’s a politician there or not.

            If you were injured at work, then why don’t you get disability ?

          • עמיחי

            I know you probably don’t want to hear it, but you and/or your husband need to consider alternatives if you want to better your situation. Increase your marketable skills? Move to a location with better opportunities? Remember, if you don’t change anything, then nothing changes.

          • Jim Rall

            Look into how much it cost to move… really… I mean it… you’ll need a lot.

          • עמיחי

            Moving may not be the solution, but there is one. Again, if you don’t change anything, nothing changes. It’s easier to find excuses why it won’t work than to find solutions to make it work. It just depends on how much you want it and the effort you’re willing to put into it.

          • Jim Rall

            I agree up to a point…. I’m saying when you’re making basement wages, it’s hard to save up to move.

          • עמיחי

            You are definitely right there! I’m facing a move myself and it would be next to impossible on $11/hr without some serious financial skills. Unfortunately, I think people in that situation are going to have to ride out the storm until Oblunder gets out of office and we have a president who can energize the economy.

          • Jim Rall

            That’s good… but it depends on where you live.

          • Corsair18

            Thanks for doing the responsible thing and trying to make things work. My Daughter (36), a single mom lost a great job and now earns less than your husband, with limited job benefits. She works less than 40hrs and gets little overtime. Yet she makes too much for food stamps. BTW….Happy Moms day!

        • richcreamerybutter

          By that argument, you also aren’t “owed” interstate maintenance, police assistance, or access to national parks.

          • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

            By your argument since I have a 100,000 dollar car I should pay more for that interstate maintenance…

          • richcreamerybutter

            You went a bit crazy with the 0s…$1,000. There, I fixed it for you.

            Yep… Nice deal for an Audi R8… LOL

          • richcreamerybutter

            *yawn* Ok, you live a fabulous lifestyle, but lording over your Very Successful Bidness and driving your Luxury Car is still not as satisfying as insulting strangers on the internet…kind of like this guy: http://oi41.tinypic.com/6yeiq1.jpg

          • Chimookman

            The taxpayers paid for the services you listed. We are owed honest stewardship of the money we paid for those things. And you pay again for admission to National Parks when you go there.

          • richcreamerybutter

            Think of how much you would pay without the subsidies.

            I get it. Some people are very concerned that no one should receive more than they “deserve.” Even among conservatives you will find a range of opinions as to what exactly should be covered under public infrastructure.

            But some conservatives (a few represented here) have the unhinged notion that a large group of diverse people suddenly lacks motivation and desire to work. Many in this category are already running on fumes, and they’re accused of simply not trying hard enough.

            In a supposed leader of first world industrialized countries, it’s insane that some US politicians expect citizens to live as if this was 1914 instead of 2014. The resources exist, but they have “trickled” upward.

            In any case, I suppose we can look forward to the New New Deal in 2033. :)

          • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

            The only way you remotely “fit in” is in a global context… Think about that !

          • richcreamerybutter

            No, it means your demographic is unhinged. For all our strengths, it’s easy to forget we were established by religious extremists. It’s certainly not a badge of honor.

          • Chimookman

            Again, those in power since 2006 that damaged the economy were the Democrats. To expect the GOP to be complicit in further erosion of the country’s credit rating would be unreasonable. It has to stop somewhere. Blame the right folks for your problems.

          • richcreamerybutter

            I’m not convinced that giving tax breaks to corporations for the purpose of outsourcing will result in a ROI for US taxpayers.

          • Felicia Callari Cacioppo

            how about tax incentives to bring their billions back to the US? You think that may create some jobs? Obama doesn’t care about jobs. He just wants an issue which apparently worked for this guy who blames Boehner instead of Obama.

          • Chimookman

            That is what BHO has accomplished. Ask some GE workers.

          • Jim Rall

            All I know is that we’re giving countries that don’t even like us upwards of 10 billion dollars in the last year or so… yet they can’t find money for UIB. We pay taxes, and I for one expect the government to take care of any American first… and Afganistink second… along with the other 3rd world hellholes.

          • poorhardworker

            Actually I am “owed” it!!! Do you understand NOTHING? American tax dollars built/bought everything you mentioned! Government creates NOTHING…it only coerces money from people who ACTUALLY work under threat of seizure! Sheesh!!! I have never looked to government to take care of me or my family when I had nothing! I…understand…I had to figure my way out of the mess I’d gotten myself into! And I did…I took ANY job I could find…until the right opportunity came along! Try it…it works!

          • richcreamerybutter

            “I have never looked to government to take care of me or my family when I had nothing!”

            It’s one thing if an individual chooses to refuse help, but would you risk permanent damage of your loved ones just to uphold a personal philosophy? For instance, if your child needed crucial dental work, would you risk the chance of death as the result of in infection rather than letting government resources fund the surgery?

            Just because you choose not to accept help doesn’t validate any negative criticism you might give to someone who does use available resources. Just because not everyone is running a race to the bottom doesn’t mean they lack motivation or desire to work.

  • BlockTheTruth

    The real danger to America is not just gay Obama alone, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a filthy sodomite like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a gay Obama presidency than to restore the necessary,commonsense ,Godliness and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a creature for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr.gay Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the gay fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a gay Obama, who is, after all, merely a gay fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

These people didn’t quit their jobs, they were told not to come back… and told we can’t afford your position anymore. I would agree with you if they had quit, but they didn’t. You really need to educate yourself on stuff. Republicans suck…Democrats suck…and so does our President…I’m ashamed to be an American any more. And when you are in this situation…which trust you will be…no one will want to hear you…not even the people YOU voted for! Thanks to all the idiots…I’m stuck with this life!

          • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

            Yep… Republicans get in office and RAISE TAXES and IMPOSE thousands of REGULATIONS to curb business. Get a clue… Even the m0r0n libtards on here know a Republican will force the able to work and take away freebies from those that don’t deserve it. If everyone who could work had the opportunity and drive to do so would there be enough money to care for those that “truly” need it ? The best thing for this country is for the rich to get richer and keep their money HERE instead of taking it overseas. If you can’t see that then you seal your own fate.

          • Nemesis4Life

            lol…exactly! I don’t know why you had to put people down. I do know it’s irritating to read some of their stuff, they are clueless. And most just want someone to blame. They are all to blame. Next time people vote they should really know the background of who they are voting for! I am a Sheople no more…Actually I never have been, the government is corrupt.

          • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

            Putting people down teaches them a “‘hard lesson” .

            That would be them all. And honestly the Republicans want job creation…the reason we are all out of our euc.

    I am extremely worried for Mr. Boehner and his love ones. He is just doing his job for the country and not the Koch Brothers. I mean, Reagan was the POTUS and he got shot, but Mr. Boehner seems to have you long term unemployed workers pissed at him. Granted you are all awaiting your fate from the Speaker, but violence is not the answer. I wish the Speaker and his wife a speedy recovery from what must be a very traumatic event.

    • Larry

      You should stand in the way of his bullet babe

    • BC Shelby

      …I don’t condone such acts as Mr Thompson committed as they do nothing to help the situation and in some cases hurt our cause even more.

      However where is the compassion for the three million+ of us who have lost or are about to lost everything when Mr Boehner himself as well as other conservatives in his camp insult us by calling us “lazy good for nothings”? We were once hard working people who lost our livelihoods due to a recession fueled by speculation and bad decision making on the part of our nation’s financial institutions and poorly crafted legislation that allowed it to occur. They got a bailout while those who are still struggling in the wake of he collapse get nothing but insults from people who should know better.

      I have never seen such vehemence leveled at a group of people as I have on this issue. It is unbecoming of a government that is supposed to be looking out for our interests, not that of the corporations or other nations.

      Today there was a moment of silence on the house floor for the Nigerian schoolgirls ho were kidnapped. Indeed, a very sad situation. However what about a little compassion those here at home who have been pushed out on the street, or a moment of silence for those who took their life after losing everything they worked their entire lives for while having no opportunities in sight? No, we are “just lazy good for nothing bums” who don’t deserve the time of day.

      What Mr Boehner has done is basically single handedly violate the basic legislative process by not allowing the measure to go to a floor vote. He is allowed to usurp complete power over the rest of congress, yet cries foul when the President exercises Executive Privilege on a measure where he (Obama) had perfect right to use “the power of the pen” so to say. Personally I have not been a big fan of the ACA as it still involves the private insurance industry and is made mandatory through threat of penalty from the IRS. I’m fortunate that my state has it’s own health plan which I am currently enrolled in.

      …be that as it may.

      Mr Boehner demands jobs creation be part of the measure, but he and his party have yet to advance anything to help people get back to work. Bills like Keystone XL are stopgaps that do not address the real cause underlying the issue of continued long term unemployment, for once those jobs dry up, we will be back to where we are now. No. we need a true long term solution that reaches everyone from age 18 – 70 which includes skill improvement/development and assists in transitioning to new occupations as the job market changes, but so far neither side of the congressional aisle has put one forth. This should also include the business sector which already receives incentives through tax breaks, but which is still seemingly reluctant to hire.

      As to getting ourselves heard, I believe a better route would be to organise and march on Washington for what I like to call “Economic Rights” just as people did for Civil Rights 51 years ago. Unfortunately so many are now so destitute, most likely that will never happen. Meanwhile some other kook will no doubt come along and do something as pointless as Mr. Thompson, which will only hurt us more.

While the Republican Senate has made delay after delay, and have taken senate break, after senate break, these poor families have been left hung out to dry, without any means to live, and support their families. There is really a TRUE CRISIS here, which needs our attention and action. The Republicans must STOP holding the Extension Bill “Hostage” in the senate, and PASS the much needed bill to help these poor families in need. Many of these families have faced eviction, home foreclosures, bankruptcy, and homelessness. Lives are being ruined, along with these people’s credit rating. The Republicans should not use these families for “political Leverage”, and bargaining chips. They are using the XL Pipeline Bill in exchange for passing the extension bill. Where are their party’s so called” family values”?

  • Josh Barrett

    repubs on this board seem to equate a threat (agree, just venting) to
    murder the SOTH with being an Obama-loving socialist. This man probably
    just has family obligations and aspirations just like any of you out
    there and sees them frustrated because the job (that he probably trained
    long and hard for) simply disappeared from globalization or
    merger/consolidation. Besides, does a white male from southern Indiana
    with a family fit the typical profile of a raging socialist??? By
    calling him so you not only unwarrantedly put words in his mouth, but
    you succeed in placing your foot into your own.

    • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

      Wonder who he ( and YOU ) voted for Joshy ???

    • Testicules

      The jobs are disappearing because of dim-o-crit taxation and regulation…

      • Josh Barrett

        That’s just not correct. Repubs have been in control of Congress for 20 of the last 30 years. Had they wanted to repeal or diminish corporate taxes, or reduce regulation, they were free to do so. Most corporate regulation is in fact bi-partisan, and I agree, much of that is wasteful and just there to satisfy the desires of the politically correct class, democratic or republican. If you whine that divided government has prevented repubs from lowering corporate taxes, well, get used to more of the same because the same forces who are blocking democratic initiatives now will be there on the democratic side in future congresses in sufficient numbers to prevent republican excesses from being enacted.

      • erick

        So follow the republican agenda and deregulate wall street transactions, and reduce taxes on the 1%. That will accelerate the disappearance of jobs for American citizens.

        FYI that CBS article you mentioned regarding the unemployed receiving 99 weeks of unemployment benefits was published Oct 21, 2010. That was 3.7 years ago. You really are trying to hard to insult people. So much so that you’re showing us how much of an idiot you are. Please show yourself some self respect. For real!

        For all of the sane people who responds to to this idiot please keep in mind that you don’t argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

        • disqus_qPwMHw5FDi

          First off, quit using others quotes without crediting them. it shows your inability to come up with your own. Secondly since the job “recovery” started 2 years ago under Obongo, why would ANYONE need unemployment benefits now ??? Isn’t the rate under 6% now ???? LOL

    It’s just unfortunate that many of us lack the ability to recognize what’s in question at this moment, while the others blatantly refuse to admit what’s the real issue over here. It’s not about left or right, it’s about a man frustrated and desperate enough to commit actions that in any way does not define him. It’s about a man who questionably epitomize the state of mind of many Americans that have deprive from their lifeline and who lost everything they’ve ever work hard for. It’s about a man who couldn’t provide basic necessities for his family and himself and started acting in an irrational manner, as far as threatening the source of his anguish, and taking his anger out of others. I personally do not condone his actions, but I’m sure you would agree with me, I damn sure do not condemn nor blame him for it. His actions are well overdue and Boehner has it long coming. People are starting to realize that being a victim of bullying does have repercussion. We as a society fail this poor soul in many ways, us in part, our inaction in the face of insurgents like Boehner, and our leaders for allowing the benefits to expire. Every single complains the FBI has against this man just is showing me that, he try hard enough, he allowed his hopes to reach a high level after multiple promises made by our congress leaders, the elevate him to a very high altitude by feeding him with empty promises, and what we seeing right now is the reactions of his fall. America is growing tired of people like Boehner, a heartless tyrant only trying to satisfy his means and his kind. A guy like Boehner who weasel his way to the top, after deceiving a lot of Americans, a drug and alcohol addict who belongs in a rehabilitation center or an asylum but certainly not in an institution such as the congress. I’m wondering how can you even support a man like that?
    He has no value, you must be brain washed to even openly vouch for a man who belongs in a sewer with his kind, bunch of rats who need to be eradicated.

  • Icare

    The definition of senate is kindergarten and the definition of congress is special education…

    It is really sad when the people of America are incapable of standing united in their beliefs. The bottom line is that the reason the price of goods is always on the rise and the taxes just keep on growing year after year is that our government is boken and all parties care only in helping the rich and theirselves and say the hell with the people as they are only tax dollars on hooves!

    Giving big businesses hundreds of billions in tax breaks pays for their profits and bonuses and we pick up the tab!

    We pay big businesses to send job overseas!

    We pay for their illegal wars!

    We pay for the billions in foreign aid!

    We pay for illegal immigrants that work for lower wages and take our jobs away that are meant for real Americans!

    And the list is endless!

    And when the unemployed ask for a little help because of loss of jobs created by big businesses and government greed, all we get is your lazy and you just want the government to support you!

    And while the unemployment should be extended with no strings attached, our GREAT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS are doing this which is a congressional bill passed in March 2010 and becomes law on July 1st 2014 and has to do with capital controls and remember that our government knew of this before 2008.

    You Should Be Scared! Very Scared! If This Is Real, We Are All Screwed!!!!

            First off, that “illegal war” as you stated, was approved by CONGRESS and the UN along with it’s 17 worthless resolutions to Saddam. Also, he had used the intel that both CONGRESS and the rest of the world had. Another thing is, had we not gone in there, we wouldn’t of found out about the UN oil for food FRAUD that helped Saddam collect billions of dollars as he was starving his people…. You should read the CIA’s own Darfur report that showed Saddam was using that money to start back in weapons program…

            Also, for gas prices, When Oblama came in, in the mist of the democrat made recession…The avg gallon of gas was just $1.78 for Jan 2009, 2 months in office, he order Salazar to shut down what Bush opened up and in 2010 he had him shut it all down…. Drilling on federal lands, under him is down some 50% and offshore drilling, forget it…Thank god for private lands opening themselves to drilling….Otherwise, it would of been worse…As it is, his now avg From Jan 2009 to Mar 2014 is $3.19 according to the data in bls.gov …Some places like Commie-fornia is even worse….

            See where gas goes to if things go to war in Ukraine…

            Or better yet, you and others will have a heart attack seeing where gas climbs to when things come to full blown war in the oil rich middle east with Israel having to defend themselves with Iran (the mother ship of terror around the world) and the Arabs…..

            To note, the event can happen at any moment… As it’s expected that Iran will have a nuke sometime this year and Israel has already warned that they will not, nor should they, allow a nuclear Iran …

            Oblama has already abandoned Israel’s and our national security. It is up to Israel to save us.

            The United States has engaged in extended military combat that was authorized by Congress. This is what the Iraq war really was according to congress. I agree that good things came from this, but at what cost?

            You’re missing the point on gas prices. If you wanted to talk about spikes. I can show you spikes under Oblama reign of disaster that have hit all time highs in the winter!…What I’m talking about is sustained gas prices under Oblama. …Bush’s whole 8 years was $2.14

        • erick

          See the 3 episode series called “Addicted to Money”. When the Glass-Steagall Act of 1932 was rescinded in 1999 the financial banks bought out the legitimate commercial banks. The wall street financial banks then borrowed money at 1% interest from the federal reserve and loaned it out at 5% to 7% in mortgages. The banks did not care if the mortgagees could repay their loans, since the banks securitized them an sold these toxic assets as derivatives. This was caused by lack of regulation and blind greed.

  • bpai99

    These types of threats are over the top and should not be allowed. Also, this person clearly is an idiot – unless you are a bigot, science-denier or a billionaire, you’re not getting any love from the GOP today.

    • Icare

      Yeah it really is to bad that fore sight isn’t hind sight, if it was, he would have been arrested before he made the threats!

  • Ronald Burcham

    For his own safety, Boehner should resign from office. It’s getting too dangerous for him in Washington.

  • almost homeless at 58

    ive been following the extension comments and there are a lot of very angry out there over the republicans failure to extend,

    • erick

      According to Boehner’s tea party primary opponent Boehner has erectile dysfunction that is why he can not extend.

  • Joe Flanagan

    There are a lot of angry Americans. Some people, like this angry man don’t want to wait for elections. No matter your beliefs about this guy, we are not a Banana Republic! To use this person as an example of any kind of political belief is wrong. Read bro-bob@blogspot.com.

    I, as a conservative, would rather have extended unemployment for Americans in need, than offer Amnesty at Americas time of need.

    It is in this environment, that Congress decided to respond to pressure from Latino groups to pass an Amnesty bill, without securing the borders. (I still don’t understand why a closed border is such a problem along with voter IDs.) The smell of bad fish is coming out of Washington and wafting across America and we all smell it.

    Americans are mad at the Administration and Congress, not at the Mexican people or unemployed or any voting group. Our government’s overreach, lies, sneaky programs stupidity and illegal acts, departments officials who seem immune to prosecution by Congress AND for ignoring our laws, when it suits them. That’s where America’s anger is.

    If you can’t get a job and have no money, its a tough row to hoe. But violence against anyone except in self-defense is crazy and criminal for progressive or conservative thought.

    How many weeks did this dumbass get to sit on his butt, watch tv, and collect a check from his previous employer’s unemployment fund?

  • erick

    Too bad Thompson did not succeed. Boehner had it coming for his genocidal conspiracy against the working class. JUST KIDDING. If politicians were dictators for life this tactic would be necessary. However, since we live in a democracy with periodic elections– changes of power occur as a result of elections. However, the gross mismanagement of the economy, and Boehner’s failure to allow a vote on the senate bill to extend unemployment benefits has created an unstable situation. Hopefully, cooler and less ideologically driven representatives will be elected in the next election cycle. America has much work that must be done in order to maintain our economic and moral standing.

  • Wartface

    Boehner is just trying to stop the Democrat’s playbook…

    There are eight levels of
    control that must be obtained before you are
    able to create a social state. The first is the
    most important.

    1) Healthcare– Control healthcare and
    you control the people

    2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty
    level as high as possible, poor people are
    easier to control and will not fight back if you
    are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an
    unsustainable level. That way you are able to
    increase taxes, and this will produce more
    poverty.

    4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to
    defend themselves from the Government. That way
    you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare – Take control of every
    aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and
    Income)

    6) Education – Take control of what
    people read and listen to – take control of what
    children learn in school.

    7) Religion – Remove the belief in
    the God from the Government and schools

    8) Class Warfare – Divide the people
    into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause
    more discontent and it will be easier to take
    (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    Does any of this sound like what is
    happening to the United States ?

    Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir
    Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by
    communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described
    his converts as “Useful Idiots.”

    The Useful Idiots have destroyed
    every nation in which they have seized power and
    control. It is presently happening at an
    alarming rate in the U.S.

    “It is
    difficult to free fools from the chains they
    revere.

  • Rick

    Boehner is an insentive SOB who is playing paritan politics with the lives of men, women and children, who are losings their homes, apartments, and their dignity, each week that this is delayed.

    While I don’t approve of anyone making threats to others, it’s easy to understand this man’s pain and frustration over Boehner and the system. I just about everyone waiting on this extension, has had similar in thoughts – thoughts that we’d never actually act on.

    I think Boehner must be one of the most disliked men it he nation right now. He’s a poster-child of everything that’s wrong with politics on the hill.

    Do you want to know why jobs went overseas.. two reasons, corporate taxes and unions. America has the highest corporate taxes in the world and unions kept the wages too high squeezing businesses from both ends. I know some of you don’t believe this and I don’t care. So now many are setting unemployed and instead of increasing the tax base with more jobs and people working, the tax base has decreased with those left paying taxes having to pay more to feed those that don’t work. Many are now living of the table scraps of the economy instead of having more opportunities to improve their lives by working their way up. oh well this is what America has voted for so now you got it, enjoy.

Boehner couldn’t care less about the poor and unemployed, he is a no good SOB who only cares about himself and his elite friends. Boehner is a joke and the fact that he was just re-nominated by the Id iots in his district is all the proof you need these people don’t have two properly functioning brain cells to rub together, yeah, they live in a rich district but money doesn’t prove your intelligent, just look at Bloomberg and Warren Buffet and Don Sterling, three of the most ignor ant people to ever walk the planet.

          • Jack Everett

            Wall street created the worldwide recession mainly through rigged credit reports and deregulation by bundling and selling off garbage mortgages through the republican party. TARP was created by Bush not Obama got stuck with it but it was Obama that stopped the recession from turning into a depression. Some criminal banking scams have been fined but none of the criminals have faced criminal punishment for what they illegally did. Spending on job creation is the only way to get out of the mess we are in. Republican politicians are still trying to push the trickle down Reagan scam on us and the unemployed that are being forced into the streets along with our vets are wondering when the trickle down jobs are going to start trickling down.

            I don’t have to study it I lived through the whole Hoover created mess. FDR was an American that believed in the constitution and the American workers. I lived in several WPA camps and worked at anything available to survive until WWII and when I joined the military I felt like a rich CEO even with the low pay of those days. I stayed in the military to get my retirement and VA benefits and also fought in the Korean war. Republicans have been trying to destroy the new deal since it created the middle class.

      Precisely, when a man has the noble and praiseworthy statement like “Give me more money or I’ll kill you” he shouldn’t go to jail. Liberals everywhere take up the cry.

      Free all muggers and kidnappers, they are our IDOLS.

      Oh, wait… did you mean “give me more money or I’ll kill you” is generally, good, or ONLY good in this one case?

      Weird that it would only be in this one case… I’m sure you meant it was good in general…. right?

        Court: Man’s Web Postings About Obama Assassination Are Free Speech

        Two weeks before Hussein was elected president of the United States, a California man posted racial epithets on a Yahoo! message board and comments that Hussein would find himself with a “50 cal in the head soon.”

        Walter Bagdasarian actually had a .50 caliber weapon in his house and after waiving his right to a trial by jury, and he was found guilty by a federal judge of threatening to kill or do bodily harm to a major presidential candidate.

        Yesterday, however, in a 2-1 vote, a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit overturned that conviction saying Bagdasarian’s speech was protected by the First Amendment.

        The Los Angeles Times reports:

        A divided panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned that conviction Tuesday, saying Bagdasarian’s comments were “particularly repugnant” because they endorsed violence but that a reasonable person wouldn’t have taken them as a genuine threat.

        The observation that Hussein “will have a 50 cal in the head soon” and a call to “shoot the [racist slur]” weren’t violations of the law under which Bagdasarian was convicted because the statute doesn’t criminalize “predictions or exhortations to others to injure or kill the president,” said the majority opinion written by Judge Stephen Reinhardt.

        In the majority opinion, Reinhardt wrote that “when our law punishes words, we must examine the surrounding circumstances to discern the significance of those words’ utterance, but must not distort or embellish their plain meaning so that the law may reach them.”

        The statute doesn’t criminalize “predictions or exhortations to others to injure or kill the president, politicians or people in general.”

      Exactly, Democrats will support the goal of “Give me more money or I’ll kill you” why won’t Republicans get on board.

      Why good and decent muggers and kidnappers demanding ransom have done this for years; it’s like you Republicans think those stalwart Democrats doing those difficult jobs are criminals or something.

      Support muggers, tell Boehner and the Government that demanding money and threatening lives if you don’t get more cash is a good thing.

      Or did you mean something else Dennis? Why would “Give me more money or I’ll kill you” be a good thing here, but not in general?

    The real danger to America is not just gay Obama alone, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a filthy sodomite like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a gay Obama presidency than to restore the necessary,commonsense ,Godliness and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a creature for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr.gay Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the gay fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a gay Obama, who is, after all, merely a gay fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

    It’s wrong for threatening. What do you think on the rational of that guy who made such threat when there’s a lot of options to be heard of regarding the unemployed predicament but of course being taken for granted by republicans in Congress. First think of the guy’s point of view. The guy probably think that Boehner can make all the difference. All he should do is open up the discussion on Congress about the federal extended unemployment benefits and dissect the irrationality of it being taken for granted or what could be done just to alleviate the hardship of their inaction but not totally shut it down. He might be thinking that Boehner is so vicious by his total inaction. Even employed people have a hard time meeting ends meet how much more if you are unemployed and with kids to feed. Does Boehner think about it or even his wife about the flight of the distressed families. Do you think his family is that cold-hearted and not open up any idea every time they eat a fine dinner. We know that Republicans are more fortunate since all of them are rich and they can care less. But come on, being on a roster of one of the expired recipients of unemployment benefits is a bona fide argument that you used to work before and has contributed to the system that used to pay for those representatives way of life, glory and power. He might be thinking why Boehner is playing god or otherwise. How much stress that their inaction is causing on those unemployed families. If stress can make a person sick and can be lead to hypertension, heart attacks that can lead to misery and death in the family, we can assume that Boehner attributed to it. If those unemployed get sick do you know how much a money the government will spend on one case, it could be millions, and that millions for just one case can feed hundred of unemployed already. I hope the unemployed can file a case against him thru a civil case since he is making it personal as to hurt you, the unemployed and your families. He is doing a mockery of out of your misery. But sad, sad to think that guy will be imprisoned which should not be the case. Which should not happen on the first place. Boehner should be sued as well as an accomplish that lead to that situation. Anyway the guy will get his free meal and free medical courtesy of the honorable people of Congress.

    THE REPUBLICAN SENATE NEEDS TO PASS THE LONG AWAITED UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION BILL, FOR THE 2.6 MILLION OF FAMILIES THAT HAVE BEEN WITHOUT BENEFITS SINCE LAST DECEMBER. SINCE LAST DECEMBER, MILLIONS OF FAMILIES HAVE FACED FINANCIAL RUIN, HAVE FACED EVICTION, HOME FORECLOSURES, PERSONAL BANKRUPTCY, AND HOMELESSNESS, WHILE THE REPUBLICANS CONTINUE PLAYING THEIR “PARTY POLITICS” IN THE SENATE. THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE “ELECTED OFFICIALS” TO START REPRESENTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND NOT THE XL OIL PIPELINE LOBBY INTEREST. THAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS FIVE MONTH DELAY AND BATTLE IN THE SENATE TO PASS THE EXTENSION BILL. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN HOLDING THE EXTENSION BILL AS “HOSTAGE” UNTIL THEIR “SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP” GETS THEIR OIL PIPLINE APPROVED. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE ACTUALLY ASSISTED WITH MAKING THESE UNFORTUNATE FAMILIES SUFFER, IN ORDER TO GET THEIR OWN BILL PASSED BY THE PRESIDENT. AS A “FORMER” REPUBLICAN, I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT I WILL NEVER AGAIN VOTE FOR THEIR PARTY

    I am still waiting for the jobs we paid for with corporate tax cuts, which BTW happens to cost 15 times more than the welfare we pay to main street. If there were jobs, the subject of unemployment benefits would become moot. Why should American taxpayers subsidize job creation in OTHER COUNTRIES? We bailed out the auto industries and the banks and they moved their operations overseas. GM received more than 50 billion in tax cuts, closed 7 factories anyway and guess what? They are still using the tax cuts for profit on their overseas operations. What more do they want from taxpayers? Earned Income Credit?

    Honestly, this is painful. Do any of you have jobs to offer? If you don’t then you see the depth of the EUI issue. Boehner is a treasonist! He should be tried convicted and hung by the neck.

How dare one penny be spent abroad when Americans are being plotted against by the very individuals charged with protecting them. 2.7 million Americans are in desperate financial positions because the Government is dicking around. Dicking around! That’s all the needs of the people are? A political chew toy? These people are going to toss around the lives of 2.7 million Americans so cavalierly?

  • Brenda Eichhorn

    What bothers me the most is that Mr. Boehner is so big on wanting to know how the democrat party can bring jobs to the table, in order for him to pass the unemployment extension. Unless I am wrong here, shouldn’t he be working with the Democrats to help find ways of creating jobs. Why would this be just a one sided thing. It’s obvious that he doesn’t care, or he would be helping the unemployed, plus work with both parties in creating new jobs.

    I know the reason for this is because all of his investments are overseas. He knows as well as we do that all of our factories and business have been moved overseas, so there is no way jobs can be created here. So Mr. Boehner you are trying to bully the American people I believe there is a law against that here in the United States. Plus if you hate us Americans that much, I believe there is plenty of room for you to move to China. By the way don’t take the slow boat to China either…..take the fast one. You are not wanted or needed here in the United States anymore. When someone can treat the American people like you have, then it’s time for you to move where the sun doesn’t shine.

    Unlike food stamp and welfare recipients, many unemployment compensation recipients (all of which previously held jobs) are Republicans. If the news media shows one person saying: that he had always voted Republican but if the House leadership does not allow a vote on extension of unemployment benefits he will never vote for a Republican again, the Republicans will cave, as 4.3 million voters couldbe a critical in the next election.

    The joke used to be that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. The new version will be a Democrat is a Republicanwho had his unemployment benefits ended.

    “..It is not just a coincidence that tax cuts for the rich have preceded
    both the 1929 and 2007 depressions. The Revenue acts of 1926 and 1928 worked
    exactly as the Republican Congresses that pushed them through promised. The
    dramatic reductions in taxes on the upper income brackets and estates of the
    wealthy did indeed result in increased savings and investment. However,
    overinvestment (by 1929 there were over 600 automobile manufacturing companies
    in the USA) caused the depression that made the rich, and most everyone else,
    ultimately much poorer.

    Since 1969 there has been a tremendous shift in the tax burdens away from the
    rich and onto the middle class. Corporate income tax receipts, whose incidence
    falls entirely on the owners of corporations, were 4% of GDP then and are now
    less than 1%. During that same period, payroll tax rates as percent of GDP have
    increased dramatically. The overinvestment problem caused by the reduction in
    taxes on the wealthy is exacerbated by the increased tax burden on the middle
    class. While overinvestment creates more factories, housing and shopping
    centers; higher payroll taxes reduces the purchasing power of middle-class
    consumers….”

What do you call forcefully removing the income and resources of millions with threats of arrest just like with any other protest violence is an action based on malicious intent and that is exactly what Boehner is doing to millions of Americans so the rich can get richer I just wish Obama would grow a spine already he can wave his magic pen for foreign countries but not Americans who runs this country because where I’m sitting it looks like Boehner

            My mission has been accomplished. I have successfully yanked your chain. You lived up to my anticipated expectations with your responses to my posts. You have been given a small dose of your own medicine. Your history of posting personal insults proves my point and I no longer care to waste my time with you. I choose to ignore your future comments and look forward to reading posts from people who can actually contribute.

            I took a look at your profile…..in your weak attempt to offer a cogent thought to the mix you have managed to acquire a meager 2 “up” votes for every effort. You will read this because you are too childlike to ignore it. In any event I refuse decrease my ranking by offering you the insight necessary for you to improve yours…. Ta Ta loser.

    Well I guess the man who threaten Boehner is just as pissed off as many others
    who need the EUC bill passed. I’ve been out of work since 12-26-13 on medical leave due to a work related injury and like millions of others have exhausted their claims and are waiting for Boehner to bring the EUC bill to the floor for a vote. But something tells me that he’s waiting to see how the elections go to see if the Republican party keeps the majority of the house. But Boehner beware some of those voters are Republicans that just maybe jump ship and what are you and the crotch brothers and Nancy P. going to do then…. WHOOP THERE IT IS….

    Legal Defense Fund for Brandon James Thompson, Arrested Unemployment Extension Activist?

    Should a Legal Defense Fund be established for Brandon James Thompson after his arrest in News Castle, Indana? He was taken into federal custody after allegedly threatening to kill U.S. House Speaker John Boehner. The 32 year old unemployment extension activist, has no doubt been driven crazy by John Boehner callous taunts, says Country Carl artist of the New Depression Blues. John Boehner has been toying with the unemployed in the media. His statements, the Senate plan is too late and is to difficult to implement “highlights a coxcomb bully”.

    Whatever happened in Boehner childhood has embeded a deep bitterness as he is frequently crying on camera. He has an obsession to ridicule anyone he can get the upper hand on. The fact that Boehner won’t even allow a vote on the unemployment extension bill shows his contemp for displaced and the democratic process.

    Secretary of Labor Perez said in his letter “Since the December 2013 deadline came and went, almost 2.6 million people, including more than 70,000 in Ohio, have been stripped of unemployment benefits that helped them keep the lights on, rent paid, and family fed,”.

    When Boehner demands how is it paid for Country Carl says “look at our old pay check stubs under Federal Withholding Tax, it is not a gift it is called insurance”. In 2014 only the states have paid unemployment insurance, the Federal Government’s contribution because of the GOP House obstruction, is so far nothing, zero, nil.
