America Shutting Down....No More $$$$$ in 9.09
Welcome to 9.09......America NEVER shut down in the Great Depression....there were NEVER 100,000,000 million Americans on welfare, social security, medicare/medicaid and unemployment dependent on an economy not generating much in profits....and an economy dependent on such spending to function.....some people call printing money simply so tens of millions can consume a Ponzi Scheme.
If you Fools think this is even going to be close to The Great Depression.....you Fools ain't thinking. When you produce very little, have lots of debt, and the bankers cut you off....ALMOST EVERYTHING SHUTS DOWN!!!!!!!
Most of you Fools are still hoping and wishing simply rubbing your little balls while the Zombulator sucks the life out of everything around you making an easy breakaway layup in the open court.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Rhode Island residents looking to renew their drivers licenses, get help claiming unemployment benefits or even go golfing could face closed doors Friday after a judge cleared the way for Gov. Don Carcieri to shut down most of the state government.
Unions representing nearly 13,000 state workers are seeking to stop the shutdown day, the first of a dozen planned by Mr. Carcieri. Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein on Thursday refused their request to do so, instead ordering both sides into arbitration, a process that could take two months or more.
A state Supreme Court justice planned to hear an appeal from the unions Thursday afternoon.
Mr. Carcieri, who didn't immediately comment on Judge Silverstein's ruling, ordered the shutdowns to help close a $68 million shortfall in a state budget hammered by surging unemployment and dwindling state tax revenue. The shutdowns will require all but essential workers to stay home without pay, or about 80% of the state's work force.
"We want to stop the shutdowns and go to arbitration," said Brendan Fogarty, president of Local 400, whose union represents employees from the departments of transportation, environmental management and administration. "We don't want our members to not get paid while we wait for the decision."
Mr. Carcieri has scheduled one or two shutdown days every month until the start of the state's next fiscal year in July. The decision puts Rhode Island among at least 20 states considering furloughs or shut downs to save money, according to a survey by the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Among those likely to be inconvenienced are people already pinched by one of the worst recessions in Rhode Island since the Great Depression. The call center at the state Department of Labor and Training will not take calls from newly unemployed people in a state with a 12.7% unemployment.
When there is NO MONEY.....people don't get paid......can someone please tell Mr. Bernanke when more and more are NOT GETTING PAID.....the DEPRESSION IS GETTING WORSE....MUCH WORSE.
Don't you think it's about time we restructure????????
