  •  I hear ya, buddy. (10+ / 0-)

    I got a BA 30 years ago, never found a job in my field. Eventually found my way into the printing business, which was a good gig for awhile. The internet is making printing obsolete, however, and the industry has been shrinking for a decade. Though my skills are competitive, it finally caught up with me and now nobody needs my skills.

    So, I'm hoping to go back to school at the local JC, if I can get a scholarship. Fortunately, California, where I live is run by Democrats, so I was able to get some help with my mortgage and next year, if I'm still out of work, my wife and I can get health insurance on the state exchange.

    If the past 30 years had been dominated by liberals instead of conservatives, we wouldn't be in this predicament.
