No taxation without representation!

I had the dubious honor of reading about my employer on Fucked Company. It’s been a nervous week, but the outcome is that I still have a job.

There’s an article on Salon about .com workers who get laid off and just sit back for a few months relaxing and drawing unemployment checks. That must be nice. As a resident alien, I wouldn’t get the chance to collect unemployment checks. Nor do I get to vote, even though I’m forced to pay taxes. It’s enough to make me want to go dump tea in the harbor.
