So You Believe Unemployment's 7.8%? Really?? Here's Reality for You.
Karma can be a VERY cruel teacher.
So. Quoting: Diluted 24191598
I actually lost my job working for the Obama campaign in 2008. I became a Field Organizer, and when I came back in January 2009 that job was gone.
I was 25.
In these 4 years I have grown... a lot.
Life is very difficult. My jobs are menial and my last one was Subway in June. Since June, I have not been able to find a job. I have been to about two interviews a week. WAIT, I had a cleaning job - right - I did. But, I don't have a car. So after a few weeks they said they didn't need me to 'buddy up' etc etc.
I had an interview today, Pool cleaning gig. Guy said he got 44 responses in one day off the Paper for a $8 an hr 40 hr a week job. I meet him Wednesday.
I do not get government aide... not because I don't want too. But because it's gone, gone like a fright train - gone like the a 59 cadilliac - like all the good things - that ain't ever coming back.
So. I'm considered one of those "Not Reported" numbers.
My landlady has been super nice to me for months... but she told me Saturday I gotta go. Tuesday. That's tomorrow.
Now, mind you, I'm a good looking, 28 year old, healthy non-smoking young male. Sure, I've got some past demons - no car - but I go to the gym every day, smart about what I eat -- extremely intelligent.
I have no idea where I'm going tomorrow....
Maybe the salvation army?
It's scary. I'm very scared. I haven't had money in weeks. When I do 'hustle' money (like painting curbs... heh) it goes to cellphone bill, food... and yeah, cellphone and food.
I'm scared as hell.
I do not have a college degree.
I'm a handyman, I can fix anything - work hard...
I'm so scared.
I don't know what to do.
People like me are perfect tools in revolutions.
By supporting Obama in 2008, you wrecked your own future.
Of course, those of us that had lived through the Carter years already knew what would happen if Obama was elected. We lived it.
And we tried to warn you, but you were too caught up in the "Hype-And-Change!" thingy to listen. Now, you pay the price for your own folly.
You can't fix what you already did, but you can prevent it from getting worse, and give yourself a shot at having an actual future, on Nov 6th. You KNOW what you have to do.
