I have been fortunate as I never have collected unemployment the twenty five years I worked. Due to medical conditions now, I was forced to retire.
I feel for my son as he works a harder job than I ever had to and collects a third of what I made. The days of landing a job that you can make a good living and work until retirement are over (my opinion).
Our son works six days a week. They have two children under the age of three. His wife does odd jobs to help while we watch the girls. They do get some help with food.
I'm not saying this because he's my boy - they use the help to get what's needed, not junk. They don't smoke, drink, go out to eat or have a cell phone.
At first, I admit it was hard for me except them getting help. I just wasn't raised that way. After doing some soul seaching, I realized I was wrong to feel the way I did. I found out later, it had hurt the kids even though I hadn't said a word to them - they could tell I was uncomfortable.
What I'm trying to say (and most likely not doing a very good job) is > I'm proud of the kids. They are doing the best they can with what they have.
Yes, it upsets me to see people abuse help. If it were up to me, I would take it away if I found out they were abusing it.
I can't say the boy's situation is due to the new administration as this has been the case for the past year and a half.
Hopefully things will turn around. I don't think things will ever get to where they once were - a happy medium would be nice.
Each night, I pray for the kids along those who are having hard times and "yes" our government. I pray they will work together and stop the finger pointing. This nation can and will (my hope anyway) bounch back.
We just all need to work together and keep the faith.

I've got a son who works his 40 hour week plus any overtime he may happen to get. His pay is under $11.00 an hour with o/t, he gets an extra quarter an hour. He works harder than I every had to for half the pay. I use to get upset when I heard about people using food stamps or getting medical help. Not any more as without these, the boy, wife and girls would not make it. I figure between my parents working plus the wife and I all those years paying into it - it's helping him as well as those who really need it. Hell no I don't like those who take advantage of it.
It's not all Obama's fault either, he took on all the crap that had built up the previous years by both parties. Why would anyone want his job ?
I pray for our country and those in Washington to work together. It's not all one party's fault or the other's ...... it's how our government is and has been for a long time. Look out for me only without thinking of anyone else - this isn't what we voted for, I'm not talking just this past election either.
What's the answer - I don't know. Maybe I'll get elected, get myself a girlfriend, pocket some money then write about it later and live off the little people

I REALLY feel you guys pain! here in ok in the auto body business it's looking awfully bad also. I've been through this thing before in the 80's when the oilfield fell apart. Lost house trucks boats campers all of it. Bought my wife an old toyota embarassing to drive when you are used to a new Blazer. She said its deer season & you haven't even mentioned it. I said I'm not going to drive your Toyota deer hunting! We went stayed in a tent, had a blast!DIDN't hurt very long . Keep your chin up ! They can't keep good people down like ARCHERS. Worst comes to worst I'll see you all in the MOUNTAINS!
