There appears to be a misunderstanding of how unemployment works. Or how it mostly works, since now, yes, because of the 'economic crisis' your federal income tax dollars are going toward unemployment.

Sorry for the rant, but I don't like the insinuation that anyone on unemployment still trying to live some semblance of a life is a deadbeat. The line for unemployment isn't when your choice is eat dirt or take assistence - that's for food stamps. But if you're constantly blowing your benefits on buying crap or going out and partying all the time, with no planning or consideration for what happens when it runs out if you haven't found work by then, yeah, you've probably long since crossed it.
