I couldn't agree more, I have been saying this for some time now. The problem is though that as long as the people can barely scrape by nothing will
happen, as long as they don't make too many people absolutely desperate, and to the point of havving litteralynothing left to lose, they will do
The problem though, is that by the time we all have nothing left to lose, we have no means of doing anything about it.
A revolution can't be fought by starved to the point of total weakness people. Hence the old military saying " an army fights on its stomache".
They will continue this slide until we have all had to pawn our possessions " I am in this boat right now, my ipod, my laptop, my guns, sold both my
extra cars, live in a pathetically small place" as one can't make it to work to make a buck without $4.00 a gallon gas, and then rediculously high
food prices, and soaring insurance csts with next to no actual benefit, as the copay is higher than I can ever afford anyways. Who has $1,000 lying
around now days?
Car insurance is rediculous, I don't even have it a majority of the time, so when I can afford it it will not even pay out as my I never get to keep
it long enough fr it to mature, and paying for 4 months than missing one month it is back to step one again.
This has got to stop, I am a good worker, I have many qualifications, I require no supervision as I am always doing my job wether the boss is watching
or not, I am at work on time every day, I never call in as I can't afford to lose a days wage. I am just currently caught in a infinite loop of temp
jobs, that lay off without warning so I am not prepared with another.
Then it all begins again, pawn the computer to get by for a couple weeks till I start the new job from another temp agencie, lose the car insurance,
as I can't afford it, the cell goes next, now I have to pay early termination fees, I pawn the ipod for gas, I sell a gun for food, I finally start
working, and 2 months later they lay off all the temps in one day, again without warning. Another week or two until I get another job, we start back
I am seriously going and donating plasma now 2 times a week, for an extra $75 bucks a week. I can't keep doing this, I have kids ffs, every time I
lose more, and regain less, now I am down to a 1 bedroom apartment, with no hope in sight. I "make too much " to get food stamps, apparently making
$11.50 an hour for 45 hours a week is living the high life with 3 kids, as the welfare office told me sorray about my luck. At least the kids got
hossier healthwise so they will be able to get medical care if needed.
