Funny you ask how one feels as your handler states wisdom not emotion...I'll tell you how I feel as an American, and veteran. Sad and Mad.
I want to work a real job with real benefits that makes enough money to have a cute small house, with a horse, a dog, furnished modestly, decent
healthy food in the fridge and a cute small economical car with enough money left over to get back to dabbling in art, to visit family one holiday out
of the year and save for retirement. I want the ability to live alone so I can have space and privacy and feel remotely free. This is what I want.
This is what some others have and hoard. If they have this they say they worked hard for it and it is there's. The term working hard is subjective
anyway. But, the concept of having all these things means someone somewhere has to see me as a valuable person and have no desire to exploit me. I
want what some others have, a nice life, and it scares them because those with a nice life think they will have to sacrafice something of theirs, so
they look for ways to use me to their advantage if they decide to take me on. I could be them and they could be me, all are becoming aware of this
and it strikes fear and dread in their hearts. I am ready to work but not exploit others in the process, nor break my back for someone else who
doesn't care about me one way or another. I would work hard for a loving, wise and fair King/employer but they are no where to be found. Sounds
like I seek a fantasy but it could be a reality if everyone would work together.
I have a BA but I've worked at horse stables for pennies doing back breaking work to working at campgrounds scrubbing public toilets, to desk jobs for
small businesses. All these jobs gave me enough money for a dingy apartment with no money to save and I had to barter family heirlooms to pay rent
some months. This was the price I paid for not having a room-mate or significant other to off set some costs.
And you know, adults aren't hard to train or please if they are given fair opportunity to live a decent life. Retarded adults work as baggers in
grocery stores such as Safeway and they are obviously disabled but can do the job. That opens a whole other can of worms about those Americans who
don't want to work but claim disability instead.
For an example, say a construction worker hurts his back on the job so he can't do his job anymore. Then he gets disability and a nice comfortable
check for the rest of his life. At the tax payers expense, meaning those that are currently working now pay for people like this. WHY? And hello?
Maybe taxes would be lower for all if more people worked instead of collecting disability and unemployment pay. This construction worker can do other
work that doesn't require the back being bent over or lifting anything. I guarantee they can sit up watch tv and go shopping and attend social
events, I see it all the time. This would be like someone with an accounting degree only looking for work in accounting but they wouldn't dream of
being a janitor. Our system is abused and ruined in the United States and it makes me both sad and mad.
I pray for a fair and loving system, and good and wise Kings/Employers to reach out to the flocks worldwide and give them hope for abundant and
peaceful lives. ^~$~^ It's so sealed.
