Life has a way of kickin your ass .
Golden years are not guaranteed. They can occur at any point in your life. Problem is when it is happening you most likely will not see it until it is long over.
Every day is golden. My problems are miniscule compared to others. I am blessed and i am thankful for yet another day. Go crank your amp until the cops come to tell you to turn it down. Youll feel better.
When you piss into the wind
Simply everyday its all good!!!
Everyday , Blue collar workers are scheduled to work until 67 while the government gets full retirements and medical . That is if we can make it until 67 and that is the point after all the crap I been through with work lately it is quite discouraging . I know my problems are minor compared to others but we are all expected to reach the age so we can pay for others to retire. The system sucks and before someone says it , right I didn't plan for it. But I did move to where I thought would be a better place to retire.
To where did you move, may I ask?
I hear you loud and clear dude. I've spent most of my life breaking my back just to make some other asshole wealthy while I am the wage slave. And I'll never retire at this rate. Meanwhile, my short time in this life is simply passing me by. If I ever do manage to make it to retirement, I will be far too old, beat up and used, to be able to do many of the things that I want to do with my single use, short time here.
This doesn't sit well with me and it never has.
I don't have any kind of answer or solution, but I'm always trying to find one. A way out of wage slavery.
Today I embark on yet another 14 hour work day, just like yesterday and the day before and the day before that...and I'll bust ass and work hard, just like every other day. But I hate it. We're all conditioned to believe that if we aren't busy at a job all day every day, that we are wasting our lives and contributing nothing. I strongly disagree. I feel like my life is being wasted laboring for peanuts, and then I'm asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so. If I could, I would leave the rat race and go be self sufficient on a little piece of land somewhere. Sounds very much more satisfying.
But, I am a wage slave, totally dependent on that paycheck that always seems to be just shy of just enough.
Anyway man, thoughts like these have haunted me too. Hang in there.
Something I try to think about is everyone has shit going on in their life that you may not be aware of. So just try to be kind to people because you never know the personal struggles of someone else. Some people have a lot more on their plate than others, some struggle more than others, but everyone has low points here and there. Just try to see the positive things when you're dealing with the negative and get through it best you can.
Small business might be the only solution but then I don't know what pains go with that.
We line up to be buried essentially. Lmao
Oh and my solution is not turn up the amp to get the neighbors to call the cops. I doubt they can hear it.
I just go in to metal writing mode. right MC ?
You are so right LP339 , It has been about my job lately and me moving which shot myself in the foot. Lost my old job that was secure with the RR down sizing it is a snow ball effect from there. Resume at 59 . Last week our shop burned down. Just before winter .
Sorry to hear. That's a lot of stuff to deal with all at once. I sincerely hope things turn around for you. It will get better. Just hang in there!
Absolutely. That's what I do anyway, when the opportunity presents itself.
We do what we can, to enjoy what we can, when we can.
some days are good, some are bad, but it's all cyclic. keep in mind that in a while all the shit you're living will be gone and you'll be stronger. The main thing is never to forget that YOU are responsible for YOUR life and YOUR ACTIONS will define you. Don't blame de government, your neighbour or someone else. Take this responsibility and become the main character in your life.
It's really important to feel that way, because all the energy you would spend blaming someone/something else you will channel to change something in your life.
and in the end of the day, we learn a LOT MORE during the hard days, so figure out what do you have to learn now. As soon as you learn it, as soon these days will be over.
Im betting anywheres south!!
His avatar indicates North !!

I get what you guys are talking about.
The last several decades have not been kind to blue collar workers.
After a literal or symbolic death. An internal transformation begins, the alchemical process of turning base metal into gold.
It is our great work.
No sir , Northwest USA.
I am not trying to blame government exactly . The fact is I just wonder if people are numb to ignore the things that are locked in stone . They raised the retirement to cover the heavy spending. How can anyone just ignore it ?
What I am getting at is we accept this mostly I guess we know there isn’t shit we can do and please , no voting is not a solution.
