I just got out on my own almost 2 years ago, married, and have a daughter and step son. I WISH I could rewind and never move out of my parents house.
I moved out after securing a job at a marketing firm making $17 an hour, and my wife at a call center being paid-per-call so her checks came out at up
to $3000 monthly. We were doing great! Then her call center closed up, and the jobs sent to the Philippines. Not long after that my job folded as
well, and after a couple of months we decided to stop wasting our savings and move in with my parents. 5-6 months later we had to relocate to a
totally different state in order for me to start a job where I get paid $11 and hour. While it's better than nothing, it's just a slap in the face
that I'm STRUGGLING to pay what some people would consider a "cheap" rent. We can't spend money on anything because when we do get a LITTLE extra
money, my baby needs diapers, my step-son needs something and they do come first. My step son thinks we're rich, and I'm glad. He doesn't see that
I have hairs that are quickly turning silver, (at 19 years old) over this financial bull crap.
After reading through this thread, I've decided to expedite my plan to secure my family and my wife and I are getting a couple of books, a bunch of
seeds, a few terrain and road maps of Georgia, and lots of ammo.
As Americans, we have been betrayed. TPTB's wars and the largest counterfeiting ring in history (the fed) have screwed us and now those of us who
MAKE THIS COUNTRY WORK are suffering. WE did all the dam work. WE did everything from paying taxes, to doing the labor and WE are getting the ass end
I know I can't be the only one, but I really wish I didn't have children right now, not for MY sake, but for their own. I wish they didn't have to
grow up in this.
