What exactly do I have in common with these people?

This man…

Not worth typing his name

said that he would create this…

His CHANGE stinks!

Well, he did!

Out of the eight people in my family who are qualified to do professional jobs and have been employed since before the age of sixteen, four of them have lost their job during Barack Obama’s current reign as the President of the United States of America.

Yes, four!

“Who is the fourth?” you may ask.

My husband lost his job last week.

Am I angry?

Oh yes!

I don’t care what party they belong to, “most” of our elected officials are CROOKS that cater to special interest groups…the biggest being that of SELF-INTEREST.

Do you know who else has/had the same kind of selfish evil?

The only positive thought I have now is that some day I will die and this fight with evil people will be over.

I guess I should just go to bed because four of my comments just got deleted by accident!

I'm so sorry! They were great comments!

One person asked what line of work my husband was in (I think it was Oh Sew Good…he is a Psychologist.

Is there a way to get back my comments?

Stopping by from SITS

I'm so sorry for your husband and your family. I'm a school teacher in NYC and we were promised if Mayor Bloomberg was reelected there would be no layoffs. Less than a month in, we're yet again being threatened with layoffs. For once I would love to see an honest politician.

I'm glad I thought of a way of getting them back! I can't believe I act so crazy sometimes. Have a great day ya'll ?
