Une Voix Des Bois
You say, "Everything that has gone wrong in my life I can legitimately blame on Republicans and conservatives."
You can only blame your problems on yourself and a set of poor decisions you made. Your penurious condition is not someone else's fault, it's yours, and it's time for you to own up to that fact. Quit playing the victim, stop blogging 8 hours a day, couch potatoing it, and go out and get a job. Mowing your neighbor's lawn, flop burgers,work at Quickie Mart, but get a job. And stop begging on the internet.
Look, I don't know who the fuck you are, pal, but I've got a few things to say on my own behalf and in my defense. So for the sake of context (you do know what that is, right?), I'll temporarily suspend my usual practice of deleting your invariably disappointing and completely incoherent screams from the wilderness.
You seem to think that every guy who finds himself out of a job is at fault. If he goes for months at a time without working it's his fault. We're just supposed to think positively and ignore the reality of crushing inflation, a tanking economy and a cratering job market and persevere with the power of positive thinking and the luck and pluck attitude of Horatio Alger.
Whether we know eachother or not in the real world doesn't matter. The thing you make obvious is that you don't know shit about my life or the elements that made it what it is.
The truth is that the last three assholes for whom I worked were Republicans, the last one of which being a local politician. The last guy before that?
He's a racist shitheel who treats his help and even his own family like garbage, makes them work in hazardous conditions, is on record with the EPA's website for having been fined to the tune of $42,000 for polluting the ecosystem and is poisoning his own people with carbon monoxide to the tune of 300 parts per million (when it gets up to 60-70 ppm, you should seriously think about evacuating the building). Last year he and his nephew sent to OSHA a seven year-old air quality report to get them off his back because they weren't budgeted to investigate a very real complaint by a former employee. IOW, a typical, neglectful right wing asshole.
Still, we stood behind him last year and were willing to quit our jobs in case his Mommy, who still owns the business, fired his fat, lazy 59 year-old ass for embezzlement (not only does he pocket cash payments, he also pays for his truck payments and his daughter's own car insurance out of company funds). We were all married or had families to feed but we would've walked out.
Last April, he repaid our extraordinary support by laying off four of us then publicly threatening me weeks later with a lawsuit for not returning uniforms that weren't even in my possession. That man ruined my life and this all took place one month after I locked myself into a year-long lease and the month after I lost my family of 15+ years.
I lost my last meaningful job before that as a direct result of 9/11 because I worked in the airline industry. Despite the fact that I made less than $21,000 a year as a QC inspector, the company's management consultants thought they could increase the company's revenues by a third from 12 million to 18 million a year by eliminating my position despite my doing the bulk of the inspections in the lab.
These outcomes were through no fault of my own.
I have done everything asked of me. I have played by the rules and it has gotten me absolutely nowhere but an increasingly cut unemployment check by a Dept. of Revenue that plainly doesn't give a shit whether I live or die.
Working with callous right wing asswipes like you, playing by your rules doesn't get me anywhere in life. Leo Durocher was right. And I'm tired of playing nice and finishing last.
I don't spend eight hours a day blogging. I'm out there five days a week job hunting with my fiancee and look on the internet for jobs during the weekend. Tomorrow I'll be out there again.
Your criticisms are rooted in absolute ignorance and cold-blooded right wing hatred. It's people like you who placed all the blame for Katrina and the carnage on those who "wouldn't" leave and therefore got their just desserts. It's people like you and Bush who blithely ignore very real crises such as an unemployment rate skyrocketing to 10% and above and think that those who can't overcome them are at fault despite limitations such as age or lack of a car and live in an economically depressed town.
Look at downtown Hudson if you are who I think you are. Note how many empty downtown storefronts there are up for lease. I counted seven in a row not too long ago. I live in a dying town in a dying county in a dying state in a dying country. Nobody is helping me out and people are taking so much out of me that I cannot sustain life.
Yet here you are bitching on my blog because I briefly complained about this in a larger context that has nothing to do with me. Who's the loser here, asswipe? I'm trying to contribute something to this country, I'm trying to find work but the current economic conditions will not allow me to contribute.
So take your right wing hate and go fuck yourself with it. I do not apologize for the state I'm in nor will I take the blame for it.
For many years, I did the right thing. I got up and went to work. I worked hard. I proved my loyalty to my company. I paid my bills and provided for my family.
And then I got rear-ended by one right wing asshole after another, people like you. No longer will I play by the rules and no longer will I allow myself to be, yes, victimized by shitheels such as you. Those days are gone.
Btw, I didn't ask for a single cent in this post so please feel free to go fuck yourself again, with feeling this time. Or better yet, rupture something, go crawl off, quietly bleed to death in a cold and dark corner and please refrain bothering the rest of us with your pissing and moaning and from reproducing ever again.
