    All I can say is it sure feels like a major blow. of course I am now a hard working American, and in 60 days I will be the lazy poor choice maker. Well at least it was 6 months of believing that I had reason to hold my head up and look at the world around me. Now I go back to scouting telemarketing jobs, or maybe I should find one of those medical assisting jobs that I trained and graduated in 2012 for.. (took me one year longer to find a call center job after that, which is now toast).

    So, many Kossaks today can celebrate the sure gains to their portfolios from these corporations. Huzzah.

    For me though: No more being on the same side, we never were. God damn them. God damn on this site, and their enablers on this site, the kumbayatti on this site, and the Democratic machine that this site promotes. And God Damn the Regional Divided Economic Zones that occupy the space that used to be the United states of america.

    If you have investments, not a JOB DOING SOMETHING you are my enemy, the power structure exists for you as sure as it is destroying me and my life. Congrats.

    I will incubate my hatred for those I feel who are watching and profiting from my destruction. I would prefer to nurture thoughts of something, anything positive, but all I have done for 3 years is focus on the positive and personal progress and the reward I got was to be on the ground again with even more people who thinks its a great idea for people like me to SUFFER (see posts above). Your fucking country and ideals arent worth it. You can tell people who really don't know (or wont learn/appreciate) what its like to work hard, and who are rat fucking protective of their right to live of their investment $$$, this website is thick with them. ITS FOR THOSE TYPES OF DEMS. FUCK YOU. Sure you really work hard volunteering to help struggling children in a 3rd world country, FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU AND THE WATER CARRIERS THAT SUPPORT YOU HERE!!! YOU ARE THE GENERATION THAT KILLED AMERICA. YOU ARE THE FINANCIAL CLASS THAT KILLED AMERICA. IF YOU HAD A CHOICE ECONOMICALLY THE PAST 30 YEARS, YES FUCKING YOU.

    Keep cheering the progress dumb mother fuckers, I really hope I meet some of you with your treasured opinions on my way to the ghostly office I go to for 59 more days, I really do. Lets chat!!!!!! Lets get face to face about whose need to sleep well at night, and feel "all is eventually going to be alright" vs I might as well jump. Come jump with me. Sing me kumbaya one more time on my way down, that's even better...

    Enjoy my again dead dream (of a stable job, nothing more), and my newly fueled fantasies of your mutual suffering/demise which I have chosen to fill the empty space with. I hope your bump in your stocks was worth it. I'm just out to share the love. Hope I see you out there, brave defenders of ever dry powder.

      There are some of us not enamored by the Vichy Dems on this site, who prefer to be liberals as opposed to Democrats.

      I am so sorry for your situation and hope you will be able to find work with your dignity and finances reasonably intact.

      experiencing this hardship. I often feel the same emotions due to the real exploitation that I experience. It's hard to be here, reading some of the comments in various diaries, in which people seem to take the side which is working against our interests.

      And factually you are correct, in terms of unequal economic relationships and the unequal relationships of power, when you wrote this:

      If you have investments, not a JOB DOING SOMETHING you are my enemy, the power structure exists for you as sure as it is destroying me and my life. Congrats.
      Its true. The owning class is the economic enemy of the majority working class. We can't be exploited if not for private ownership of production. The owning class is the enemy of the worker.
