End of an Error
Last of the combat troops coming home from Iraq. Good their mission was done years ago. We don't need to be in the nation building business. We need to rebuild this country. Bush used the country credit card and we get stuck with the bill. I say we send the bill to the Bush family and the republican party who let him get away with it.
Had a bunch of other ideas for a post when this came on as a news alert. They have a couple of weeks to go through all the paperwork and other military BS before they get back here. Wait till they get home and find out there are no jobs to fill. They'll wonder what the hell they were fighting for. I give it a couple of weeks and we'll see the effects of PTSD. No job no challenges and no future prospects.
I see the convience store up the street is giving up. It's been there since I moved here some 30 years ago. A new oil change place moved in nearby. I see them standing there throwing a football around because they have no customers just like the last place. I give them a few more months and they'll be gone.
I called the boss yesterday because he said there'd be work soon. He lied. He's laying everybody off because there's no work yet. So I looked through all the job search engines only to find stuff that I'm not qualified for like systems anaylist, electrical engineer or production supervisor with 5 years experience. Even looked through Craig's list. There's a lot of scams there. Wanted worker with own box truck and tools. If I had a box truck and tools why would I need them expecially when they were only going to pay minimum wage? I've seen too many scams like that over the years. I should have sold lemonade when the weather was hot.
