I have labeled this: News from a modern day slave, because this is who I am. My stepfather, years ago, was somehow able to convince me "If you work really hard, and do your damndest to advance, you will make it in this society".
I have found that "living the American Dream" That I am broke all the time. To give some background: 1. I own my own home (not really, the bank owns it) and I pay roughly $1000 dollars a month, which completely does away with one paycheck every month. I work my a$$ off for my company, and I do well. I made $40,000 dollars last year working "salary" for my company, where I work on average 60 hours per week, during the Summer 70 per week.
I don't have time to enjoy life. I barely have time, between work and sleep to evaluta life, and determine where I really am. Of course have all the basics that my position should be able to afford. I have cable TV, I have garbage pick up. I am able to pay my utiliy bill every month. My credit is excellent. I at the end, am barely able to feed myself. I worry every day about my job and my future. I am fully rational to the point that if something doesn't change I am bound to lose it. Is this the "American Dream"? If so you all can have it. I'm miserable most of the time. I don't see a way out, without doing away with all responsibility, I need to live my life differently, but I don't know how anymore. I am a modern day slave.
Any suggestions are more than valued.

Keep your job and make money, all the while stock up on food ammo guns barb wire and duct tape. grow food, find a group of mentally stable nuts to mix with, practice the silent centurion take down.
Wait for the signal.
