Biden literally wants to give you money...stimulus checks, a living minimum wage, he wants to give you free health care, he wnats to roll out a vaccine that gets sociwety open again, yet somehow this is bad and you'd rather vote for the people who want to give you nothing, stir hate, and gaslight you into thinkjng the party that stands for big government, a government that actually looks out for its voters and not just big business and provides a safety net, is bad.
Go figure.

Hey OP,
Don't know what job your wife had and I know places are not hiring but perhaps she could pick up a job, any job, retail gas station, something, any job just long enough to get your loan closed?
Its very hard to do but look into loan modification. My bank did a loan deferment as my wife works in the Restaurant business and it went to nothing. If her business does not pick up we may sell but my bank helped us for now,
Don't give up OP, Put your thinking cap on and think outside the box.

Nope, not even close to a breaking point.
Watching these millennials fight back in Their own way and subsequently be cast as pariashs along side the MaGAs is enough evidence for me to believe that there is a true awakening happening.

all I can say is if you go into foreclosure, WATCH OUT.

the real estate vipers will absolutely PREY on you like they smell blood, if you know what 'crisis actors' are, you will see them run this game, people show up all over the place, trying to talk your house down in price, they're all freemasons, they're all part of a satanic cult.

you go to lawyers, they are all in on it too, it's the most bizarre thing you've ever seen and you'll never see it untl you are in this situation, THIS is what it's ALL about that's why. once you are the prey of hell, the whole fucking Truman show turns into a nightmare, once you have become SAtan's victim they want you SILENCED and GONE, DEAD
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 70987562


I will most likely sell my house before I go into foreclosure for those reasons.

I did negotiate a very good price on my home when we purchased, so I could make a small profit even though I've only been here for two years.

Well living here, disabled, empty house, no car, broke till the new month.Got out of the county can last week. Did 5 days with no meds. Facing indictment, will beat it if it shows, hopin. Oh life is just great.

On a brighter side, I'm getting a new furnace from Pipp people, two furnace ppl showed up to give estimates today. Then in two months the roof will get redone with eves and gutters. In process of getting a small loan to get siding and windows also. With that I'll find a car and probably drive a day or two for a transit company and make 100 bucks a day. That will make the loan payment in one week.

The problem is I do have a good job (university professor non-tenure) so I have to pretend to be a good government employee and cheer on the Covid restrictions.

Of course, now that my wife is unemployed, I might have to give her some chemistry lessons, since she will have plenty of free time to set up jobs from home.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79780865


Say what you want, but one faculty has already been fired for voicing opinions on the covid craziness.

Ironically, it was an immunologist who was saying masks are pointless and the virus isn't as serious as the government is making it out to be.

I just go in, keep my head down, and do my job (like most of the people in this country)
 Quoting: Zedakah


I'm in the same position as you, got a good paying job, but I'm a laborer.
I hate it most of the time. Working with almost all liberals who absolutely hate Trump and most of them know that I'm a Trump supporter.
My daughter and my Mother have both been so brainwashed by the media that they are begging for the vaccine
I've cut them both off emotionally and the daughter, financially.
I just can't deal with the possibility of my daughter dying from stupidity and brainwashing.
She's been in college for a biology degree for friggin years now and I've paid for her phone, her car insurance and the occasional emergency and baby sat her dogs all the damn time. No more. She called my ignorant and said that's she's a biologist and is much smarter than me
Meanwhile I've sacrificed my body to labor for the past few years paying for this ungrateful little shit who has taken friggin almost NINE years to get a Biology Degree and who now calls me ignorant, and I AM, OBVIOUSLY.
And in the meantime the job is killing my soul most days
One of the rat Nazi bitches from LA ratted out a coworker recently for taking off his mask while in a bucket 40 feet in the air, all by himself.
A boss told me on Jan 6, before he or anyone knew about ANTIFA being there that they should have mowed them all down with a machine gun!
I'm about to break too because My daughter seems intent on maiming or killing herself and I didn't raise her that way.
I friggin drive an hour each way to get her non iradiated milk for God's sake.
She ate nothing but organic for the first 26 years of her life.
She throwing it all away, so, I'm having a beer when I quit drinking years ago.
But I do truly believe that this will all have a happy ending.
I believe. I can't change what had happened and I can no longer reach my family members. They are gone already and I just have to let them go
I'm not going anywhere though. Just going to better myself.
I truly believe that the best is yet to come.

Wow you have gone way beyond what you had to for your daughter. Your right. It’s time to cut her off. Let her sink or swim. She is old enough and according to her smart enough to make her own decisions. Make whatever excuse you need to but stop before it costs hiu your health. And you can only raise a person so much until they have to decide for themselves how to live. Just sit back and take care of yourself now.

Trying not to break, hoping to bend. Hoping the foundation holds us together, but it’s being challenged. I see it everywhere, people hurting, trying to keep it together, but everything seems sold out to the highest bidder. Money seems to be valued more than people. It’s demoralizing.

I offer encouragement, this is temporary. You have desire to keep your family cared for. Thiis will happen. Maybe not exactly as you visioned,but you will provide shelter for your family.

It's so easy to scroll by posts. I'm glad someone posted a response to this so I could give you some sanity back.

First, your daughter is not smarter than you.

How do I know?

She is a biology major.

I am a biology professor.

Very few of my students are smart. And the fact that she is a biology major instead of premed (prehealth) means the best she can hope for is being a biology professor and end up like me.

When I was her age, I was told biology was a great field with tons of job opportunities. By the time I got out, Biology was one of the worst fields for the job market. Now, you have to specialize in computer science to even have a shred of a chance to get a good tenured position. Half of the faculty research in my department was "writing code" to analyze field data they never collected (these being the younger faculty and new hires).

If it makes you feel any better, imagine how I feel when I debate flaws in climate change, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, GMOS and other biological topics with people just like her over the internet. I am convinced I have debated at least a few of my students who claim I am an idiot, then proceed to come into class and fail the exam. Those same people then somehow manage to 'pass' the course with a C- and then go back to the same forums to brag about how they are now an expert because they 'passed' college biology.

But I'm glad to hear from you. You accepted my true reason for posting this thread, which is to vent to the world and release some of that pressurized steam before you hit that breaking point. And to know that you are not alone. There are a lot of us hitting a wall right now, and it isn't pleasant.

My last thing to say to you is if you do one thing tonight, then read Deuteronomy 28. When you get to verse 34, you will finally understand what is going on, and why it's going on.

Don't break.

Because what is happening is being intentionally done to try and cause you to break.

Hey OP,
Don't know what job your wife had and I know places are not hiring but perhaps she could pick up a job, any job, retail gas station, something, any job just long enough to get your loan closed?
Its very hard to do but look into loan modification. My bank did a loan deferment as my wife works in the Restaurant business and it went to nothing. If her business does not pick up we may sell but my bank helped us for now,
Don't give up OP, Put your thinking cap on and think outside the box.

Oh I know. At the very least, I will sue just to get some of the benefits back (sick time, vacation, etc...). She NEVER called in sick or missed a day of work in 5 years and that money alone could give us another month or two.

Re: How Many Are Close To A Breaking Point?
I'm posting this because I know I am becoming ever closer to reaching my own breaking point. My wife just lost her job today, which means our refinance falls through, which means we won't get $400 a month lower payments, which means we can't afford our current payment.

I'm not making this thread for sympathy, because glp is certainly not the place for that.

I'm making this thread because if it's happening to me and my household, then I guarantee it is happening to many households nationwide, and also I do need to vent a little. More and more people are falling to the ranks of the unemployed every day thanks to Covid combined with Biden policies. The situation is not going to recover anytime soon. Covid restrictions are becoming more strict, and Biden policies are irrational and insane (just like Biden!).

If it's happening nationwide, then not everyone is intelligent/logical enough to peacefully deal with adapting to a new situation and make life changes. If this is the case, then we very well may reach a tipping point or breaking point where people are willing to do anything to provide for their family (especially things that were previously off-limits in a civil society).

If there is one thing that 2020 taught us, it is that liars, cheaters, and thieves win. And if that is the lesson other people who lose their incomes see, then there will be an increase in liars, cheaters, and thieves among the populace and a potential breakdown of civil society.

Disclaimer: I am not advocating violence nor is violence my mode of operandi in a breaking point. I am just making an observation of cause/effect relationships in society.

So, you're living above your expenses.

You're a fraud.

Why should anyone pity that you live WAY above your expenses.

Give into it. You know you're greedy as fuck.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79979586


Tptb always wanted both partners working so they could bring in more taxes. They got their way fir the most part. The thing to do is live off of one income while putting the other away no matter how cheap you have to live if both are working. Because when ones loses their job you are sunk. And someone always loses a job. Be very careful of materialism. Just live way below your means even if it means moving. You could even afford to take a job that pays much less than living near a city and still come out way ahead of the game.

DO NOT live on more than one income can provide.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78732400


With the refinance, we would have been just fine on my income alone. This was my plan after purchasing the home for just one year to make sure we could afford it.

Also, you should have built up a savings of 3-6 months of expenses to deal with emergencies. It’s poor planning and greed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78732400



I had 6 months saving from last year. Covid hit. We had to go through some of it. Now this has hit. We have 2-3 months to figure out how to fix this.

I always plan and prepare. I was hoping to get 1 years worth of savings up and running before Covid hit.

My point is sometimes it doesn't matter how much you plan and prepare. Shit can happen to anyone at anytime. The titanic was not unsinkable.

My takeaway to other people is sometimes now matter how much you prepare, you will never be ready for what is coming.

What we all can do is live well below our means. And then when something happens we don’t have too far to fall.

Re: How Many Are Close To A Breaking Point?
I know I am, my dad passed away last September, non covid death, and my mom has alzheimers, and he was her primary caregiver. Me and my siblings have been trying to take care of her at home, but she is getting worse, she actually snuck out of the house the other night and walked a few miles down the road in freezing weather. So now we are going to have to put her in a home which means she will be on a death clock with the covid situation. Add to that stress from work, and then having to deal with the usurper in the white house, I'm at wits end.

Sorry to hear about that. I had a family member go through Alzheimer's, and the disease is far worse for the family than the person. One thing that might help is to create a video from family video clips that act as a 'timeline' for your mom. Just have faces, names, and clips of people growing over. That way she can watch it as many times as possible, and it might actually help. The brain can still learn even with Alzheimer's - the problem is that it is usually dumping information faster than it is receiving it. So putting as much family/personal information as possible into a single video that can be replayed over and over will help slow the progression (watch the movie 50 first dates and look at the video he makes for her at the end).

I really don’t know why! I should be strong for my Wife! Since she is going through Chemotherapy and Breast Cancer! But I thought of killing my self today! I am 59 years old , and unemployed! Nobody wants to hire a older person! I just feel so inadequate! I will do everything thing I can do for Her! But my life feels worth less! Love you all

Hang in there. Look for the smallest things to be grateful for every day. It helps.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74764467


Yes. We all have something to be grateful for. And when life goes down it does go back up. We have to be patient.
