I am the Volunteer Jobsearch Host at Bellaonline.com and I am seeking volunteers to
help form an alliance of the 53 million unemployed and uninsured in America ( this
is a combined figure ). As a volunteer in
Morocco in 1977-1978 , I know first hand the
face of poverty and despair . And this face is
currently becoming the face of America .
I have been looking for a job myself for over
a year and since Congress failed to extend my
unemployment benefits , I have been living off
my life's savings since the beginning of this
year without health insurance .
I don't want to be a burden on society and neighter do the 53 million other Americans who
share my same fate .
Before we wallow in despair and poverty , we
will fight to find jobs and health insurance til
the bitter end .
Our voice isn't being heard and we need your help,ideas, talent and energy to create a website
that will ultimately help all Americans .
The quicker that we find jobs , the more money
we will have to spend and thus expand the economy .
Without your help our lives could become barren
as the Sahara Desert but I have faith that you
won't let this happen !
Thanks ,

You shouldn't be without a good job. The third goal is not serving you either. Peace Corp's failure to employ experienced volunteers in USAID and other foreign service programs is unhealthy for America.

People are really discounting Peace Corps more and more because of the elitist attitude volunteers have for one another.

What can I suggest. Get training in your CDL license, grow a beard, and drive a truck. You will serve the third goal by educating truckers to all the issues volunteer service in the Peace Corps. You will always have a job with that license. I know you don't want to do that.

Well, most of us don't. But that is what many of us former Peace Corps Volunteers do and the other laugh and make their cake and exploit others. Just look at the NPCA. Tell them I told you it was your right to call them and demand a job. They have plenty of grants from their sugar daddy Dodd.

If you want health insurance, join Howard Dean's campaign. Go door to door as a member of the unemployed. You will find your network.
