From Jobless in America


"Class war has begun." - Sue Oelkers, Red Wing, Minn.

"Here in California, the official unemployment rate is now 9.3 percent, but that doesn't include people like me, and there are a lot of us." - W.K. Grady, Los Angeles

"...We were told, Work hard, play by the rules, and pay your taxes and you will get ahead--you will have the so-called American Dream. That's a damn lie, and I for one am mad as hell about it. God help those in charge should I and the millions of other people like me (our numbers seem to be growing exponentially by the day) reach a point of desperation and no return. There will be a revolution and no redemption for the people who caused this mess." - Joris B. Rapelje, Clinton Township, Mich.


Joris? Don't be too surprised by that late night knock at the door...
