Was watching CNN just now and a reporter came on, his voice shaking, talking about a man, age 55, who emailed them to tell them just how bad it was
trying to find a job at age 55. He has exhausted his unemployment benefits, the limit is 99 weeks, and is totally disgusted with the 'government'
lies, disingenuous websites promising 'jobs', posting his resume unknown times, and never getting a response. He was very despondent in the email
according to the reporter, and was considering ending it all because he didn't want to suffer through 7 more years until he was eligable for Social
Security. Isn't it interesting that people of middle age who are having a very hard time finding jobs are being classed as "99'ers"? I'm 56,
was layed off from my job on Dec. 31, 2010. I'm only elidgeable for 24 weeks of unemployment, which was taken out of my wages while I worked by the
way, (so there should be no reason the state government should mandate that I look for a job as a condition of recieving unemployment, though I have,
which leads me to believe they don't have the money to pay out in the first place!). Does that classify me as a "24'er"! Have applied for lots
of jobs, both in person and online, and guess what? No responses! Wonder if I'll get to the point that the 55 year old already is, and which so
many other people our age already are in this nation? Not blaming anyone though. I take full responsibility. Its my fault I didn't save any money
and prepare for the end of my life, which we all have to face, sooner or later. To the 55 year old, and the rest of you 99'ers, 24'ers, etc.,
don't put your faith in humanity to save you, for they will not, and cannot, but put your faith in Jesus Christ! The end.
