Better Luck next time...

Greetings good citizen,

Some of you may have noticed the ‘keyword’ perception management being used quite frequently as of late…which sort of goes hand in hand with the, er, abundant number of posts labeled under ‘fraud’.

While the markets climbed a hundred points on ‘better than expected’ employment news what the fucktards NEGLECTED to mention was that the number of folks counted as ‘not in the workforce’ mushroomed by a whopping 800,000!

Not to put too fine a point on it good citizen but it is not too hard to imagine that the entire 8 million workers who lost their positions during the most recent ‘economic contraction’ are headed for the same fate: permanent unemployment.

As many of us ‘early casualties’ have noted, the most recent contraction seems to have hit the over fifty crowd exceptionally hard.

I used to lament not being anywhere for more than five years…now one is lucky to make it a single year before the employer du juor turns into a smoking hole in the ground.

Yes, talk about your ‘double whammy’, most of us of a certain age are now the proud owners of a more or less totally phantom resume!

Worse, the company still exists but the people you used to work with are all gone.

We can ‘ice’ this shit sundae with the fact that employers are now holding your phantom resume against you. If your history isn’t verifiable, it’s bullshit!

So, most of us have these huge honkin’ holes in our resumes and, through no fault of our own, these economic disasters are now being held against us.

Naturally, this is considered ‘our bad’ for lacking ‘good judgement’. We should have known better and acted accordingly.

Of course there is more here than meets the eye. It most certainly is NOT a coincidence that people who are just entering the years where they really need their health insurance coverage are the same people being, er, ‘cut loose’.

While this sure looks like ‘sour grapes’, there is more at work here than ‘bad luck’.

This is a blatant violation of the social contract.

We didn’t slave all of our lives just to make puss-nuts obscenely rich. That wasn’t what we signed up for.

We demand our ‘pound of flesh’ and we WILL extract it!
The bad news is many of the innocent will suffer as a war of ‘retribution’ plays itself out.

Just maybe, this time things will turn out differently…

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
