    I sat here for the past hour going through all of my machinists tools, trying to figure out what I could get rid of to feed my family. I cataloged $5000 worth of measuring equiptment and figured I have to get rid of all of it to get what I need monetary wise, and probably wont even see 1/3 of what I paid for it. I worked hard for my stuff, and now, I see everything, everything that I worked hard for just going down the shitter. If things dont start looking up soon, I may have to start selling kidneys and part of my liver on the black market just to keep living.

    But Obammy keeps telling us, "oh, the market is turning around, but it takes time for the companies to hire back the people that were laid off, but even most of them have went on to something else, and most of the time its a better job." I watched him say those words to David Letterman the other night. How can you lie to someone like that on national television until you're blue in the face? I guess he did it so much he turned black in the face (and not meant as a racist comment). I'm fed up guys. Its been since July 9th since I worked. Yes, I may only have been a little over three months, but you have to understand, I have NEVER, EVER not had a job.

    Its friggen killing me to sit around, mowing the yard everyday, trimming the bushes, and hell, even went so far as to sit out on the front porch and offer people who were walking by if I could cut their yard. I am going nuts.... Where's my meds?

    Can you make/fix/modify gun parts? A friend of mine has kept himself afloat making small custom gun parts. Does NOT pay well but keeps food on the table and the bills and mortgage paid.

    I have nothing to offer but my best wishes and prayers!
    May God find mercy for out country that in the past 20 years had cast him aside in the name of Political Correctness and restore us and bring us peace and resolve to over come and restore the values and ethics that made this great nation.

    I've actually talked to my dad about getting a small mill/lathe combo for things such as this. I love doing small jobs like this. I just love making something out of nothing. I have made parts for my firearms; firing pins and a bolt for our AK/22. Nothing big, but I just love it. I'm bored... LOL I need something to do...

    I understand how you feel man been there done that many years ago, it will get better, but I would add for all that if you have a family get out of debt or work on it now,own your home even if it means down sizing, debt free makes it much more difficult for the idiots in DC to hurt you.

    Been out of work myself since the first week of June.. I'm only 24, but I've been wokring since I was 16. Kinda makes me feel less of a man b/c I'm not out punchin the time clock every day... The wife is there for moral support.. but moral support doesn't pay bills... or buy ammo. Been applyin to all of the sporting goods and security companies in the area... haven't had any good news yet... The whole "sitting at home not working" thing is driving me nuts!!

    Sorry to hear about the loss of jobs for the 2 of you. Have y'all tried hospitals in the areas where you live? They need people to register patients, maintenance people to keep the hospital up and running, security, people to clean the hospital, etc........

    Good luck.
