THINGS I'M REALLY PISSED OFF ABOUT
The biggest thing, the most overwhelming thing? There is absolutely NOTHING we can do about it.
Social Security & Medicare:
IT'S NOT AN ENTITLEMENT, I paid into it for 30 years.
I pay taxes on my $12K
I pay $100 a month to have Medicare.
The Government is not GIVING me anything.
30 years of piss poor jobs slightly above minimum wage. I paid into Social Security as my primary ONLY retirement plan. Impossible to save enough over the years.
Please don't forget that most of our 401K's were either destroyed or cashed in to survive after layoffs and downsizing.
Small stock portfolio? Tried to save our home from foreclosure by selling it all off. Only managed to have another year.
Went from a 5 bed 3 bath home to a 1986 dilapidated double wide on 3 acres. I learned to grow food. Not for fun, but for food security. It's not going to get any better for me or my family, but we'll eat.
The entire Middle East broken down DEADLY Mess.
My political party failing to act in my best interest.. I used to be a Democrat. But everything that I learned in school and at home that was right and fair in America, in our government and politics, is now considered Socialism. So bring on the Marx.
OBAMA HAVING THE TESTICALS TO ASK US AGAIN FOR OUR SUPPORT?
Ha! While his campaign people and presidential aides chastise us for not loving Obama's half a moldy loaf of poison laced bread? It is difficult to move a hardened heart with speeches that have to be dissected word by word to find the lies. I just won't waste the effort. Stopped listening.
