I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
11-6-2012 | Anthony

Posted on 11/06/2012 8:25:07 PM PST by wastedyears

If Obama is reelected, this country will fall.

I'm 27 years old and have nothing going for me. More companies will go out of business, and more jobs will be lost and shipped overseas. I'm going to be fined because I won't be able to find a job to buy worthless government healthcare.

I came home from voting upbeat and confident. Now I feel useless and I'm at a crossroads in my life that I fear and don't want to face.

I'm almost 30, and I have nothing. What the hell am I going to do?

Although some of us may be whining, and yes, I did too, but I think we have the right to, at least blow off some steam and let our concerns known. I'm middle aged like some here. All I can say is do what you can to survive and prepare if you can. BLOAT. Buy food, fuel and so on. Learn skills. If you cannot grow food, be worth to someone who is of like mind who can. Know who your friends are. Unfriend any Bamster supporters.

Tell yuns what, if I hit the powerball for an obscene amount, I'll start a Galt's Gulch somewhere and we all can go there. A side note, there was a 1972 movie I saw on ABC as a kid called "Second Chance" where a tycoon played by Brian Keith, buys a ghost town and fixed it up and people who need a second chance in life moved in and they had their own community, defense force and so on. That would be perfect for us but a pipe dream for now.

We got to survive. We have to.

Obamamao is planning on gutting the military. I am afraid for my son, who just turned 25 and enrolled in the AF reserves the beginning of this year.

I’m 28 too, I recently lost my job, but tomorrow I’m going to have to buck the eff up, quit feeling sorry for myself and find another way to get a job. Now, let me tell you something and I mean this as a friend, here I just slid you a beer, drinks on me bud. :) at 28 you are still very young to go back to school and do it affordably. I used to be a college counselor, please FReepmail me man, let’s talk about your education and how we’re going to get through this. Things are better than you imagine, I’m serious, I got my own struggles too and believe it or not they are similar to yours. But we will get through this, we will have families and get work, please don’t give up.

My Son is 5... How do you think I feel?

my step daughter came home pushing Obama last night. Time to go talk to the school..

I had plans for expanding.

I just got a e-mail from a client waiting on today to pull the trigger on a project.

Canceled.

I’m waiting on a visit from Gault.

If you can’t pull yourself up in a few days, please seek counseling.

Your happiness and fulfillment in life must not, cannot depend on arrogant, self important people in D.C.

Talk to some good friends, join a Bible study group, and count the blessings you do have. Read some inspirational books. Neil Cavuto has a good one.

You’ll land on your feet. But please get help if you can’t break out of it soon.

To: wastedyears

The end game has already been written and foretold in the bible and truth will win out. But before we get there several things MUST happen first.

Jesus equated the end times coming upon us like “birth pangs” come upon a woman going into labor.

What are “birth pangs”? Painful contractions starting out in longer intervals that grow shorter and stronger.

I see this as one of those pains. They have been getting closer together and stronger.

Another prophecy yet to be fulfilled in a new world order that’ll be led by the anti-christ. It’s not hard to believe that Obama wouldn’t lead us down that road. I actually believe he’s got us well on the way.

I believe that the US of A that you and me love has been a major stumbling block in the plans of the powers that be. We’d be damned if we would willingly accept being governed by any entity outside our elected government.

Stay with me now!

Look at Europe and what’s happened over there. They formed an economic union that has them locked into a system forsaking their sovereignty. Now the whole thing is being held up by ONE country, Germany. It won’t and can’t last forever. Nor can the US continue down the spending spree it’s on and now committed to into the future.

It’s all gonna come crashing down and by design. The powers that be WANT it to crash. It’s the only explanation as to why they ignore the math and continue to spend.

But WHY do they want it to crash?

If things are made so bad and our comforts we’re used to gone that makes things ripe for accepting something that normally wouldn’t.

One man will come out of the fray seeming to have all the answers to all the worlds ill’s and the people will fall for it hook line and sinker. THIS is what can be learned from the election of Barrack Hussien Obama.

BHO, protected by a media that allows him to literally get away with murder. How much more will this antichrist be protected with the full backing of satan himself.

I could continue on with this but it’s getting late and I gotta get up for work in the morning so I can continue giving to the non working moochers.

Bottom line is that there is still hope. Just not in the way your currently looking for it.

God wants Jesus to be your salvation, not some politician.

“You’re thinking like a liberal, guy. Your success depends solely on you. You make your own opportunities.”

Many years ago, when I was 19, I felt lost, not knowing which way was up. I joined the Navy. They fixed my head in three months of boot camp. That was the best decision I made in my life. It changed everything for me, for the better. I recommend the military to anyone who is lost.

The Day of the Lord, the Second Coming will not come until the Antichrist comes.

This world must be prepped to receive him - I submit it is well on its way.

And for those who don’t know, the Antichrist is future, not past, as the Lord will destroy him with the Brightness of His Coming.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Thessalonians%202:1-12&version=KJV

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

King James Version (KJV)

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

LOL! Oh, but I have!

Been there, done that.
Got the shirt, got the hat.

Yeah, it was a long time ago, but I lost everything: wife, house, kids. I was lucky to keep my old beater VW.

Been re-married to my current wife now for over 30 years. Got 11 kids, got a nice hobby farm, got a nice job, got cars, trucks, and a big van.

No matter what you go through, you’ll come out of it.

Don’t let an election throw you.

America and the American Dream are bigger than 0bama.

And God is bigger than all of it.

The Biblical prophet Habbakuk was once in shoes very similar to ours, and asked God the same question you're asking. God responded, "The just man shall live by faith."

This country is in the process of being greatly humbled by God for its wickedness. Our prosperity will be taken away because we made an idol out of wealth, our freedom will be taken away because we preferred licentiousness to the real liberty of obedience to God, we will suffer defeat, even our unity as a nation may come to an end. God's chastisement always consists of giving the sinner what he prefers to God, until it either destroys him or he sickens of it and repents. Obama is God's instrument of punishment precisely because so many Americans prefer his snake oil to honest work and moral living.

Through everything that must come to pass, keep your faith in God, not in America or any other nation. There will come a time to pick up the pieces, and there will be pieces left to pick up. And maybe then we can rebuild that shining city on a hill of which President Reagan once spoke so eloquently.

Cool, it sounds intense, I bet you never forget that dream, I don’t know what dreams like that (more accurately, of that level of detail and intensity) mean, but they stay on our minds for years.

I’m still trying to figure out how dreams of decades ago, could raise such lingering thoughts and feelings and such a strong desire to know where it came from, what caused it, it’s purpose or meaning, the why of it.

If you are still useless under fully-implemented ObamaCare post-2014, then you won't get any medical care.

The first blow to medical care will come shortly. ObamaCare stipulates that for anyone who is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days for any reason, whether it's related to their first visit's problems or not, Medicare will not reimburse the hospital for the costs of the second admission.

This isn't piecemeal socialized medicine, i.e., convert all healthcare workers to government pay, but an actual loss of healthcare resources once whole hospitals start going out of business.

I got shafted pretty bad by the NYC public education system they so vehemently support. Even had one teacher that probably gave me most of the social problems I have today.

For the a-holes at DU reading this, you can all go screw yourselves. What will you all do when Daddy Barack runs out of money and can’t support you anymore?

for me the most important thing in life is to be happy with myself and those around me.

A friend of mine taught me a valuable lesson years ago. He was maybe the poorest person I knew but he was also the happiest. No matter what his situation he always looked at the bright side of life. He always made me feel good when i seen him and that is so important.

That’s pretty disgusting. They claim to be liberal and tolerant, but they get pleasure from the suffering of a fellow human person. It wasn’t so long ago that many of them were despondent when a President they didn’t like was relected. They should remember that, and realize that one day it will probably happen again for them.

I’m very sorry wastedyears. I’m sorry you feel so depressed. I do, too. I’d like to be able to give you a pep talk, but it’s hard. I was so hopeful today, too. Before Obama even got it, my 10 year old told me tonight he wished he could go back in time and stop his parents from ever meeting. He said he wished he hadn’t been born in this time. I’m going to definitely need to give him a pep talk. Now my seven year old is crying...she just heard Obama was re-elected. I told her we will be okay—we will survive. She said she’s going to put up a lemonade stand every day:) Then she realized it was winter and she said “warm lemonade”, then she changed it to hot cocoa. Steely Tom has some positive words on this thread. I like that. We need to support each other. You are lucky to have your parents and they are lucky to have you. If you need moral support or commiseration, don’t be afraid to ask for it here and in your personal life. You can gain strength from people like Steely Tom and others who have been there and done that. Be well FRiend. I wish that for you and me and all good FReepers. I’m so thankful for this forum.

I feel your pain...I feel like the humility my ancestry felt enduring Reconstruction

but just the title of your thread made me chuckle

trust me..there is somewhere off the grid on this big old planet without all this crap..i was happy as an expat once...now i will likely do like most like us...self segregate to our places...rural mostly

but our country is lost to the weak and bitter for now and it hurts

thanks though ...I laughed out loud...but i know you weren’t trying to be funny

I’m 55 with 5 children and struggling business etc...and I’m scared too...but not at risk about what to do with my life

but i will never give up and you can’t either

we are outnumbered by demographics...we are going to have to find some way to turn either some Mexicans or White Northern liberals

those are the only two options

I will be curious to see how the white vote compares to 2008 and 2010

I had figured if we replicated 2010 we’d win...62%

you’re too young but we used to win nationals with 52-54% white vote totals

this ain’t 1980 anymore

we opened the door and let them in

the GOP committed suicide and we warned em...big fights over it here...and nobody listened...called us bigots...banned us even

but the primary culprit here is the latino vote and that implication in Florida, California, New Mexico and Colorado and Nevada

and guess what....Texas will be at risk soon enough...imagine that?

now we are stuck with them..if most Mexican women were prettier we could just marry em up...for the cause..but whew

Your post 47 is why I’m afraid to date. For something so much as someone not liking me anymore, my life can be ruined. It’s also why I’m so conflicted with remaining single for that very reason, and wanting to tell a special someone in my life how I feel about them.

I don’t personally know how bad it is, but the prospect of my life being ruined because someone doesn’t care about me anymore scares the life out of me.

But have you SEEN today’s matriarchy, errrr, I mean “child” support obligations? I had my children back in the eighties and never receive a dime of child support. My husband pays his ex-shrew $1,000 a month making only 36K a year; she makes much more than he does and has remarried a just shy of six figure dude. I had hoped that CS reform would be on the agenda but now, not bloody likely. Here it goes till 21 and beyond. So we have “children” voting in NYS ages 18-21.

I could say so much, I could relate so much. I wrote a song called Greek Columns In Ruins that I would like to see performed by an act able to spread it to a wider audience. I don’t see strangling people with bigger bureaucracies as a solution to our problems, nor can I say that my situation in life has improved over the past four years.

I work at Best Buy, been doing that for four years. I’ve watched the cutting of hours and removal of fulltime positions, and I think that it has something to do with Obama. I see many of my co-workers bragging about voting for Obama on their Facebook pages without any discussion about Libya. I think that anybody who gets laid off because of Obamacare coming in, should tell their co-workers(before they leave) about what they’ve done. I may not, but I feel an urge that if the effects continue I will speak up to the Obamaphiles at work.

I’ve been trying to go to school to become a Radio DJ. I get indoctrinated by a professor who repeats every Left-Wing talking point and shows us Left-Wing videos. I’ve been trying to get my songs published in a world where what I write is too dated, too “old” for the people that I submit the songs to and I just don’t give up. Even my newest one may sound too dated. Don’t give up.

In the end, even if Obama wins it is not like the Obamaphiles won’t feel the effects of what voting for their idol did for them. He may even get impeached because of Benghazi. I haven’t talked a lot, here, as I don’t feel like I can always say something effectively enough or good enough to sound like I am contributing something useful. Whether I wanted to or not, I had to do this.

Don’t be bitter, it will only hurt you, not the object of your resentment.

Wait it out. I’ve been through it. We were very poor. I had to pay support. I know what that’s like. You would not believe how the tables have turned around in the last 30 years. Amazing.

Trust in God.

If you haven’t yet, give your heart to Jesus. He will heal all the hurt and give you true freedom. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty!”

You . will . make it.

You . will . survive 0bamao. You will.

I survived Carter, and that was when my divorce situation was the worst.

Be patient.

Love is something that the more you give, the more you have. So just love. It will bless you.

I did use Farnsworth as the title for the thread, but it’s how I feel.

I’ll probably end up having to forget the girl I like to go colonize another world. All the hope for the future was sucked out of me by people that want everything handed to them.

“the GOP committed suicide and we warned em...big fights over it here...and nobody listened...called us bigots...banned us even”

Suicide through mass Third World immigration.

These idiots stood by and cheered it on. Just listen to the Salem Radio crew and they are still at it tonight, even as Romney goes down to defeat. Hugh Hewitt, a prize idiot if there ever was one, is already pushing “immigration reform” just like Dubya and his halfwit brother Jeb.

The Stupid Party deserves to die. But we don’t deserve to die with them.

I could guess what the song is about, but can you elaborate? What style of music did you write it for?

You are still the primary controller of your destiny. Now, you simply have more obstacles to overcome.

It’s all based on expressing what I think is pertinent when thinking about the Obama administration, especially after seeing so many people express their joys when it comes to Liberalism and Obama. It’s about Obamacare, the odors of the Fascist economic model, Libya, and Hurricane Sandy. The title is a reference to the 2008 DNC speech and it presumes that the thrill was gone when it came to Obama and that he would lose. Here is what I wrote.

Greek Columns in Ruins

Verse 1:

There’s a structure made of pillars that cannot stand for way too long.

Made of weakened limestone the road isn’t far along.

It’s been chipping, almost fell for three times in 5 years.

But some worker without orders put in sweat and tears.

(Refrain)

I don’t know why we are wasting away in this desert sand.

And I am trying to reach out for a cloud made of hands.

There’s no need searching for what is already gone.

The integrity of a building melting into the sun.

Second Verse:

So many people seem to think that what is weak is really strong.

They buy into the management’s poisoned rights and wrongs.

They gave it a name when the last boss was around.

They refuse to use the same word when the new boss came to town.

(Refrain)

(Bridge)

Believe, be free but not if you make it to the top of the tower.

They’ll like you when you’re about to climb with no power.

The jealous demi-G-ds see all you guys as a kind of threat.

They hurl thunder bolts at the willing who make them upset.

(Bridge ends)

Your followers in robes don’t look into their mirrors.

Cause if they did they may see some needed tears.

You want to try real hard you want to be yourself.

But you join the mob who owns your future health.

(Refrain)

I was thinking more of a Folk melody for it.

If you make it a little longer and edit the words for easier singing, it could easily go into hard rock. Being a fan of metal, I dare it sounds like something Kreator (old guard of thrash metal from Germany) would write.

I don’t mean to say it’s bad, because I think the content is great. I dunno if you have any clips of it to music, but I personally think it would go great with some overdriven/distorted guitar, and a guy singing that could relate to it so any listeners believe what is being sung.

Just my two cents.

I also had another dream too where we survived an atomic war in a small town. I remember driving with a few friends in a 1970’s era car to look for other survivors and I made it to Pittsburgh where I ended up on Mt. Washington. I remember looking at the city seeing the twisted girders of the buildings and hearing nothing except the wind howling. Creeped me out. We booked for the car and got out of there discussing how freaked we all were. Again woke up in a cold sweat.

Thank you, I’ve gotten plenty of compliments on what I’ve written before and since I’ve been writing for 11 years than I guess I must get a compliment somewhere down the line. Alright, I guess I can add another verse(I thought that it might be too long) and I also guess I could shorten the lines. I love music, in general, and I sort of like metal music, so I guess I’ll check out Kreator.

I am more of a poet than a musician, so I cannot really write sheet music. I just wrote the thing a few days ago, and I cannot play an instrument plus my voice is way too deep and too offkey. The other problem is that I don’t know anybody who is reliable enough to work on this with me, currently. I guess I could call up my friend but he is a lot busier than I am, and hardly has seen me in these past few months.

Oh, and www.MerrickEgber.info for more of what I do. I guess that I am too desperate to not resort to a shameless plug. If I had enough money from song royalties, I sometimes think about getting a place in some small town far outside of civilization where I can breathe.

It is amazing and disturbing stuff, I wonder where such deep, deep, dreams come from, and again, not the subject of them, but the way that they drain you, exhaust you with their intensity and lingering memory, lasting years.

I'm pretty damn depressed right now. I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life.

That's where I was at 27. I'm 57 now and I have no idea what I'm going to be doing a year from now but every day I do what needs doing and a little extra if I can. I don't have the time or patience to be depressed anymore.

Don't let other people or events define your life. If you let someone else do it they will treat it like a Section 8 apartment. It's your life you define it.

You have the correct attitude.

This was one battle that was lost. At best, this loss will help us avoid the obvious mistakes made.

There will be other battles in the future, and our goal is to win more battles than we tie or lose.

The purpose of our future battles is to win the WAR, just as Breitbart warned us.

On the positive side we need to list what the problems are.

On the negative side we need to list what mistakes were made.
