The "job search" can consist of a few clicks on the internet, no "pavement pounding" required. That is, if anybody even checks.
With smaller govrenment, as conservatives wish, fewer regulators - ironic

The plain-speaking governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, embarked on an extended tirade against his own party members in Congress on Wednesday, raging against what he described as the "toxic internal politics" of House Republicans.

Christie, a high-profile Republican who is among the potential candidates for a run at the presidency in 2016, used invective against his own party usually only heard in attacks from Democrats.

Which is why he will never win the nomination, but will easily be re-elected governor.

No documentation of job search activities need be submitted unless specifically requested.

If unemployment benefits are extended indefinitely, many will not bother to look for work.

With unemployment benefits in some states almost $600 per week, why bother?

Unemployment is difficult to gage as many work part time in the cash only economy.

Christie has no chance in either party, except in New Jersey politics.

Probably re-elected Governor in 2013, then run for US Senate in 2018.

Republican Party has no leader at present.

Economic failure of Obama Administration will likely make 2016 a Republican year.

If such people choose to violate the law and risk prison, that is their choice. Most likely their employers face a larger risk.

Honest people believe in ethical behavior instead of abusing the system.

Because it was her job to verify that intel. She took money from you with the understanding that she would verify intel about Saddam Hussein's WMD program.
What she did was, she falsified the analysis. Valerie Plame was a critical piece in the ploy to keep the UN's oil-for-food scam going. She falsified intel so the 18 UN sanctions being ignored would remain in place, and the oil-for-food scam would continue.
You can't verify what doesn't exist imbecile. Your allegation that she falsified intel is a total lie otherwise you'd have some proof.

Don't think that's going to happen either. Most of us are still shell-shocked from the last election and are now just biding our time hoping that some sanity will return in the next two elections.
Politicizing the Tea Party movement was a bad idea and no one wants more derisiveness than we already have in this country thanks to this current administration.
Unfortunately, Romney was not the right messenger. Obama just got lucky. Hopefully, Americans will be paying more attention to the failed policies of what will be this two-term president the next time.
Obamacare will be in full swing by 2016. People are in for a huge wake-up call. Maybe our taxes didn't go up this year but every single one of us will be paying for that monstrosity in four years.
There you go again Carol, blaming the divisiveness in this country on Obama when it was the right who from the very beginning did their utmost to obstruct anything that would help the economy recover and put people back to work. The very night he was elected a predominantly black church was burned to the ground in Springfield Massachusetts by a group of racists who were angry that a black man was elected.
If Mitt Romney wasn't the right then who was nitwit? The GOP had one candidate, John Huntsman who had a chance but his problem was that he was actually sane and the extreme right culled him out at the beginning. The rest of the field were whack jobs and buffoons.
Obama didn't get lucky stupid, the Republican plan was economically unfeasible and quite frankly morally repugnant.
Obama's policies haven't failed liar. In his first two years before the Republicans retook the House he was able to pull the economy out of the ditch that their policies put us in.
You're predictable and ignorant screed about Obamacare is also false. In the end it's all about ending abuses that big insurance used to fleece their subscribers and pad the bottom line. Maybe you think it's all right for them to take money and then try to weasel out of paying when you really need it but I don't and the majority of Americans don't either.

Republicans hold the House of Representatives which places a break on any initiative of President Obama.
Scott Brown, if he wins Senate seat, may be in line for leadership.
Christie could run for the Senate and President in 2020.
