I will give you a serious answer -
I am 50 years old - my son is 30 years old.
My son works hard - he is currently working building houses - the first one there, framing the house - for $18.00 and hour. He has no health care, no

I have a mortgage on a house which is relative on the market what it is worth - in a financial collapse - it will be worth nothing - but my mortgage
will still be what I owe on it - not to mention property taxes......

I believe you are living in the northwest? And anyone with half a brain can see what's in the ocean, and floating over all of us in the sky, and
coming down to rain on the land that the food is grown on.
Disenfranchised from the billionaire gov't idiots that keep making laws to apply to us and not to them.
We feel your pain, and hopelessness to actually be a good, intelligent, hard-working person - who wants just the basices and maybe a bit more, for
