I know know what many Americans have been feeling a lot lately. Today at work they started calling people in one at a time laying them off. Everyone was quiet as a bunch of church mice just waiting to be the next one to the office. They figure it will end up being about twenty percent of our plant that are going to be laid off. I was one of the lucky ones that kept their jobs. I managed to keep all my people in the department I am lead over, many were not so lucky. I thank God that I did not loose mine, and I pray for the ones that did.
To many Americans are going through this very same thing, and our worthless governments solutions is a bunch of pork belly spending. I hope that true Americans stay tough, and the rest get packing. This is what will seperate the men from the boys. Keep your head up America we are not going to fall.

Glad to hear

Glad to hear you got to keep your job, I'll pray for those that didn't. We will not fall if we all stick together.

Hardest day at work...

I have been away from home for a long time, bad days at work. Our laser system refuses to work and I am really upset...
But....evertime I get depressed when things go wrong, I remember that soldiers, marines and airmen are sleeping in the field tonight without a way to call their loved ones. Some guys are getting laid off, deployed and some are not getting home ever.
I thank God I am still working at this point. I need to Suck it up and press on.

I want to thank you for pointing this out, there for awhile I was just wrapped up with my self preservation. I really do appreciate what all our armed forces are doing around this shitty world. They have our backs in foriegn matters so we have to have theirs on the home front.
