Being ignored, lied about, misunderstood and disrespected by 535 members of Congress ALL YEAR LONG is bad enough — BUT being used as the sacrificial lamb by your President is even worse! Obama used over 5 million 99ers as the “burnt offering” to the Republicans – just so he could get legislation passed like DADT (which was not an emergency situation where Americans were dying every day).
Congrats to the Gay Community, as they have waited in the shadows along with the undocumented immigrants (who were not helped) much longer than the 99er Nation. I am delighted about Congress FINALLY passing help for the 9/11 first responders – a vital long overdue measure that should have NEVER taken this long to become law.
Then again unless legislation helps the rich in this country, there is simply no urgency in Washington to shove it through the process. With the lamest Congress in years (despite what was accomplished) finally ending yesterday, and Obama vacationing in Hawaii – the 99ers MUST focus solely on MEDIA attention.
I have seen YouTube videos about someone’s kid crying in the back seat of a car go viral and receive media air time on every channel on TV for days – even weeks. Thing is the 99ers have yet discover the “Viral Video” magic that can get us the world wide attention which could help our plight and correct the misconception – perpetrated by Washington DC that their 13 month deal last week added any help for the 99ers.
Ergo my latest attempt to resolve this dilemma and bring loads of media airtime to the 99ers. It will not win any Grammy Awards but that is NOT the point. If enough folks blast this into the blogosphere – we will no doubt get the media attention that allows us to educate America about the fact the 13 month UI extension is a huge LIE!
There are actually 2 versions of the 99er style Santa Baby:

99ers Style Santa Baby http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-KxlXeU7wI
But it is the second link that has the most hits so far (only about 100 in the past 8 hours it has been up). The video is below and the words will follow. There is some adult language so the lyrics printed here have been altered in order not to offend.
If you wish to get the Media attention capable of shining the light of true disclosure on the inhumane suffering, ongoing within the 99er Nation then PLEASE post this EVERYWHERE on the net and make this go viral!
Lyrics to video song Santa Baby – 99ers Style 2010
Congress Baby, the 99ers need a tier 5……to survive
I know you’re HEARTLESS P@#*s But….so what?
My children need some dinner tonight!
The car got repo’d and the rent is awfully late…but wait
You only care for the rich that’s a B*@#H
there’s millions of us dying out here
We can’t afford a Christmas tree
While you’re all buying Cartier at Tiffany
You bailed out banks Greece and Haiti too
I think it’s time the 99ers heard from you
Obama baby, just help the 99ers please
and… don’t tease
Been a really tough year
I Hope Your change is comin’ tonight
Obama honey, you sold 99ers flat out
and now it’s snowing out,
My stomach’s growling
I need some food and shelter tonight
Sherrod honey, Schumer and that Stabenow too
Were through we all trusted you
but senate baby your lies have left us hurtn’ out here
We’re not rich – guess we don’t count
The dirty little secret you won’t talk about
There’ll be no jobs again next Year
It’s time you kicked your senate’s butts into high gear
Congress baby just pretend to care for us poor
once more – come on it’s just a check – so what the heck?
there’s millions of us dying out here!
That’s right I’d rather work than fight
Hurry Congress there’s 99ers dying TONIGHT
