Striking back is all I can see because what is going on is nothing less than an absolute act of war on myself and even more so on my wife.

At least for now. I hold out hope that the tables will turn on them soon.
My family has been going through hard times a lot like yours for a few years now, and I know quite a lot of other people who have been too. In times like these, we stick together and somehow manage to get by and keep each other from losing everything.
I do know how you feel when everything you do in good faith and honor gets sabotaged by a system determined to destroy and plunder. People with good practical skills and personal integrity are getting destroyed at the hands of a few nasty so-called elites who have neither and value nothing but money and their own power over others.
I expect a lot of people here on ATS do understand this. So many other people, stuck as they are in the perverse mind control system, don't understand and it can leave you feeling pretty alienated and very angry.
I know you're not asking for sympathy, but you've got mine, and my understanding. I really do believe the tipping point is fast approaching. It'll be hard times ahead for everyone, but I'm hoping the so-called "elites" are the hardest hit of all. Throughout history, in times of real social upheaval, the traditional values of personal integrity and useful skills matter the most. You have those-- and your time is coming.

What did I tell you bro..? If you keep investing in an imaginary Boss, you're gonna lose the shirt off your back.
But, thankfully, you have a good support system to fall back on, including myself...
I have no prayer or words of wisdom for you my friend, but I can offer you logging and a warm plate of grub for some time. And the beers are free, as I know the conversations to follow more than make up for the cost.
See, the thing is, ATS offers a medium for different ideologies to gather. If it wasn't for this place, I'd never have met you Randy, as I don't search for my opposite. You never gave up on me, and I won't give up on you.
Hang tough brotha', and if you need anything, even an upside down cross, I'm here for you..
Love you man.
