Since we were Bushwacked I lost a 50,000$ a year job making tools and have found a job for half that much working in a jail.
The State I live in was also Bushwacked and they have a hiring freeze on employees.
So today I worked 16 hours starting last night at 10 till 2:30 this afternoon.
The govenor of my state also let my home owners insuance get bushwacked and my home owners insurance has been taken over by the state costing 8 times what it cost in 1981, or 800%. But my wages since 1981 have gone up 22%. Wait a minute the govenor of my state also was a Bushwacker.
Fortunately back in the 80's I realized I was a former JW with out a decent education so I paid my house off by the time I was 40 and I stayed out of debt and healthy.
So this week I was able to make ends meet. But I think the Bushwakers and other leaders of the United States Government want to eliminate the middle class which I used to think I belonged to.
Plus my investments in the stockmarket have made about 1% for the past 8 years.
The last year of the Clinton Administration I made 43% on my money. Almost as much in dividends and growth as I make today working full time for a year.
But I still have 150$ a week to take my wife out to dinner and what ever else that will buy.
Actually I usually eat cheap and take her out to 3 or 4 dinners.
I'm doing ok today. But I have been having to work a 16 hour day. And I cant or wont quit because the next job out there for me will pay half as much and probably still work my but off.
Also my wife has to work full time and she provides my health insurance.
When I saw Mr. Weedwacker steel the presidency. I sold my Ford pick up truck that was getting 15 mpg and bought a Dodge Omni which got 30 mpg until a drunk smashed into it at 3 am while i was at lunch from the jail. Now I have a toyota tercel which gets 27mpg. And my wife got rid of her Nissan fronteir and bought a Toyota Corrola which gets 30 mpg.
With gas costing 3.50, its been costing me about 23 Dollars a week to go to work and to the gym 5 days a week.
I miss the days when the stock market averaged 15% a year and America made things.
