I like Ron Paul to but so many people are addicted to the hand outs its going to be hard to get them off it and vote for real change!
I only see the Job market getting worse. Im in construction and we are slowing down right now!!!! Sommer and spring time are always our boom times.
not this year.
I feel your pain, friend. Well, not physically, but on a philosophical/spiritual level. And I'm sorry to say, it's going to get worse.
First off, you're absolutely correct about getting people off the federal teat. Unfortunately, if they don't, they will soon find out what it's
like when all the milk is either gone or completely watered down - and that will be much much worse than had they moved on to independent solid
As far as your job - I can really only say, IN MY PERSONAL OPINION, learn related crafts for other things that people need and you'll start from a
good bargaining position as barter will become very useful in the days to come - learn to make furniture, etc. Since the Fed was manipulating
interest rates and sending false signals, your industry was based on illusory demand, and the bottom is now falling out as has been for awhile. Had
we been dealing with reality and realistic interest rates, investment, etc. - we wouldn't have had a boom in this industry.
I hate having to admit it, but you're better off than I am. I don't have any experience building things. I'm friggin' sharp, but I can't rely
on my hands to make me a living unless I can get on-the-job training or some other real-world experience outside what my brain can bounce around - and
that ain't even doing me a whole lot of good right now since I have a hard time buying into this world anymore. I know this rock floating through
space is a beautiful place, but it's rule by people of the wrong sort and I really can't stand it.
I just want to go home, I'm a pilgrim passing through here. hah! Here's to RP getting elected and beginning the correction - hopefully.
