I, too, am one of the parasites that are living off of the prized unemployment now. I am currently 51 years old, and have managed as many as 50
employees, in 30 retail locations, over a broad territory. I have documented proof of increasing my sales revenue over $1 million dollars in the first
full calendar year while there, as well as cutting losses to ZERO. I have made a 6 figure salary for over 10 years, and have many business contacts. I
started work when I was 14 years old, and, only for an occasional short period layoff in the construction industry when I was fresh out of high
school, I have never been unemployed.
The hammer dropped on me in June of '08. New housing starts took a huge decline in Southern California at the end of '07 and the company I was
employed by (supplied hard surface finish products for residential and commercial use) was heavily embedded with this industry.
I have an excellent, documented and proven history. I have sent out literally thousands of resumes and cover letters, designed for the specific job
offered, and can count on my 2 hands the responses I have gotten. Demoralizing? You bet. But to add insult to injury, there are those who seem to
think that we are living the high life, sitting on our fat arses watching TV and surfing the net for fun.
The point of this long winded (sorry) story is this; it is my opinion that this has been a well orchestrated looting of the people of the world, not
just the US, by those who pull the strings on most of the nations of the earth. They are going to crush us financially, we will have calamity after
calamity in order to keep our attention from seeing the big picture. Here in the US, they will declare martial law over one of their orchestrated
catastrophes and take our guns, because our guns have been the only way we have remained a "free" nation as long as we have. Then, when they have
broken us we will have become dependent upon them, and we will be their slaves. The middle class will have been eliminated, and only the elite will
have, while all of us will have-not. Research Cloward and Piven (sorry if misspelled) 2 professors from Columbia University, and their ideology for
overwhelming the system. Then take alook around and compare their doctrine to what is happening around you. Oh, did I mention? NOBAMA attended
Columbia, a known socialist haven institution.
So, anyway, if you happen to be one who thinks those of us who are unemployed, want to stay that way...the only way I have survived in on my savings.
I have no health insurance. I have had to move in with my 75 year old father, but I pay my bills. There are multitudes out there who have it worse
than I do. So next time you feel the need to bash the unemployed, remember there is a bigger picture here, and we will all be victims of it sooner or
later. There will be no recovery. I pray for all of us.
