I am reading these messages and am wondering what happen to the America we know. I have gotten to a point that I feel nothing but anger for a country that once held its head up high with honor.
I am tired of people blaming everything on 9/11. This was a horrendous event in our history, but enough, let those people lie in peace.
Apparently this is a nationwide problem,one that can get changed if we can start to shake the tree.
I am going to send this site address to NBC, CBS,ABC, and anyone I can think of and challenge them to take this on.
Am I scared? I am terrified, WE are 52 and 53 and headed for living on the street. Lawyers , Social Service Agencies say turn to families, We have no one. I agree with Cranky our life is nothing. I go to work,sleep go to work and fight from day to day to just exist.If I buy toilet paper is that 3.00 in gas I need for the week to get to work, If I buy a bag of dog food is that a toll I will need. I make 9.50 an hour,finally was able to get health ins which takes 61.00 a week out of my check.Then taxes.I was working 40 hours a week then the company has a program,Work to travel, where they bring in kids from around the world who work for 3 months, no taxes taken out of them and everyones hours get cut because these kids are gaurenteed 32 hours a week. So I get sometimes 28-32 hours a week. I spend 100.00 a week to get to work and home. This is what we have been reduced to by Greed and Workers Comp.
Today my husband is almost able to move, he is in pain and just laying on the sofa. Add the fact that I am sure depression is a big factor and that is what our days are like.
Please Please don't just write here, find your political representitives addresses on the net and write them. Send them to anyone you can think, newspapers, TV,anywhere you think will be heard.We have got to make a difference because NO ONE is going to do it for us.
Maybe we should form a new state and add it to this great country, the Great State of Displaced and Injured Workers.
I am sure I will anger a lot of people by saying this but I don't care if Irag has democracy, I don't care what Isreal or Lebanon are doing.
I am living in a country that can't practice Democracy for its own people but can show others how to have it. We have a Constitution that sayS by the, for the, of the PEOPLE of the United States but we have a president who has RAPED this document over and over to justify his actions.
Please Please stand up and FIGHT, LET ALL OUR VOICES BE HEARD. WE ARE THE AMERICAN WORKER AND THE WORKING CLASS. WE ARE THE BACKBONE AND STRENGTH OF THIS NATION. Someone in here said remember to vote, I wonder what kind of election it would be if no worker, middle income, or the poor just didn't vote in the next election?
Kind of like the Party you throw and no one shows up!!!!!!
