yep... but michigan is on top with the unemployment. It's hard here. Since we have poor
public transportation system. We have buses and trains etc. But it's not good enough where you can just hope on them and go to work or anywhere you
want to go. It has limited destinations at different times. Like in New York. I went last month. I notice the subways. I saw people using it daily.
Going to work or school. Yet trains come and go. I mean you have a train that will come in time where you can hop on and get off to caught other
trains that will take you to your destination.
So over here in michigan you need a car. If you can't afford a car then good luck finding a local job. Jobs here are usually miles away. My dad had
to drive a 2 hour drive to and from work not the total. Total would be 4 hours to get to work and back. That's time that he is not working but
driving on the road to work and back. He is old too.
Over here I been looking for a job. I worked for a guy as a VP of technology. I worked for 4 months. The guy playied games with me. He is 26 and took
over his dads cell phone consulting firm. He hired me... the terms where that I will get paid 75 bucks for the first project which was to work on a
A previous programmer quit and so I had to take over his work. I then found out they used google servers for free to host their website. Yet how the
previous programmer created the site was using django admin system. Yet google only allows google admin libaries to be used. So I for 2 days not 2
days straight but apart. I had to work 24 hours. for 2 days.
I figure out that the previous programmer created this problem. I told the ceo this.
he then told me to work on other sites he had in mind. So I agreed. we talk about it and he offered 600 bucks. but the conditions were to pay me when
I finished the website.
now he gives lists that are small and the keeps every week adding more and more.
So noticing this and not getting paid for 4 months for hard work. I decided to call it quits. He took my cell phone number to use to register one
domain with google and then when I told him I quit. He kept asking me to give me cell phone numbers and register 2 more domain names. So I register
the names but it needed 2 new cell phone numbers. So I told him this and he response rudely saying umm are you asking me to do the job I ask you. I
told him flat out I have no more cell phone numbers. So he finally got 2 more new ones and gave me it and I finished the domain name registration
I currently quite that job and now unemployed. I been looking for one. I even looked for small jobs. Like family video. All the movie/game rental
shops. I tried them. I tried McDonalds. I tried alot of places. I usally just waste time. Cause they don't tell you they have job openings. Now they
ask for you to apply for a job then once they need to hire someone that's when they call you.
I now get alot of spam from family video and other rental areas. Since I gave them my e-mail info just for contact purposes. I never accepted anything
for allowing them to send promotional stuff to me.
So what I am saying is that I think we are just hitting the tip part of the iceberg.
I am scared that the U.S will eventually fall. I hope I am wrong. I don't want to be write. I can today see driving habits changing. In michigan
people are getting more reckless and more depressed. I see more crime rising and alot of scams. Many scams are people impersonating as employer or a
contract house that search for workers for companies.
So right now people are giving critical information to people that they think are offering good jobs. Like One company I contacted for a computer
They are located in new york. They told me they are in michigan. I went threw it and find out that thier is no job. They took my information to sell
it to marketeers.
I now get a huge pile of mail and e-mail and even phone calls on my cellphone about promotions meaning marketing ads. Junk mail or junk period.
I notice those things are on the rise. Over here it's very hard to get jobs that high school students can do. Those jobs are getting filled by
workers that used to work at GM or the other automakers. They will work at a restaurant while attending college.
So I am just saying so far this summer. I can tell by how people are acting right now. Here in michigan. They are nervous and stressed out. I now see
more often people running red lights in a hurry. This includes semi- trucks. I talked to a guy that was a trucker but is now in college with me. He
told me that what the truckers do now. Is they get their pay check only if they get to the destination on time. If not they either get no pay or they
get some deductions. Those deductions would go to the person that paid for the shipping service. So I don't see any improvement. I am just seeing
things getting worse. I still talk to many in college. Most of them are scared about the future.
I mean last year michigan was close to shutting down the state police and making huge cuts. They put a tax on movie tickets and hair cuts and many
other service businesses.
That didn't last more then a month or two. The businesses complained that they lost business because of it. Michigan governor found out later on
after enforcing that tax. They got 10 million in profits. This means they over taxed. They got a surplus of 10 million. so they decided to stop that
tax. So now that didn't shut down the state troopers.
we still have our financial problems. Just that I personally think that this is not the worst. We will see a grim future soon.
I made this post to try and get us thinking about about the future of the U.S I just heard on fox news. That obama might get ready to do another
stimulus package for the banks. They are losing more money.
To me it sounds fishy. It sounds that it's engineered. They are slowly draining money out of our economy in the U.S to control what we can afford.
This will automatically limit us on travel. This could be a indirect control on us. kinda like a leash that is not visible.
So I am just trying to figure out why our Government want to keep throwing our tax money towards banks. The banks shows that they are not lending
money out and yet are not doing what they were supposed to. So they lose money and we are back at it again giving them more tax money .
I mean they went on vacation with out tax money. I don't see why our U.S government are just giving free money to corporations. That don't easily
lend money to people. So I am hearing that obama will give another bail out stimulus stuff to the banks again.
If this is true. I don't see how anyone would do such a thing unless they wanted to. I mean like their was something in it for them or they got
threaten. In order words their has to be a motive behind why we give the banks tax payers money. Even though we did this already in the past and it
didn't work. The banks went on expensive vacations and use the money foolishly. I personally don't think anyone is stupid enough to keep giving
free money to banks that never showed results on making money or progressing on profitable operations. Or stimulating the economy.
So I am predicting a grim outlook for these coming years. I am not saying North American Union will happen. I just think the future will be bad.
Something big will happen. Maybe a great... great depressions that we never seen in our history of history.
Well I hope things turn around. we can always hope.
