    Sorry about your situation, I'm sure that with your skills and aptitude you'll find something eventually, especially given where you live. I wish I could help but I'm not in a position to right now.

    Gotta wonder, though, to what if any extent peoples' being progressives or activists or members of this and similar sites may have hurt their job-retention and finding prospects. Are there any signs that employers are deliberately discriminating against lefties these days, any more than usual, either because they don't want "troublemakers", or in a coordinated attempt to make them so poor that they're unable to be politically active?

    How could the left be "professional" when so many lefties are unemployed?!?
