This is disgusting! More to show the direction we're heading as a nation of corporate greed and the desire to do away with the middle class, as well as outright disgust for the disabled, disenfranchised, and displaced...who once had jobs that no longer exist and a hiring pool that require CREDIT for employment! Disgusting!!

To the members of this "circle", I have a question. I've been trying to re-enter the "corporate-ish" world, what I mean is that I'm trying to change careers and I was offered a position and relocated, then it evaporated, then someone I thought was a friend told me that there was an office opening and was texting me the address, never happened and never heard from them again. Then I was hired under the understanding that I was being trained to be a new hire trainer (which is my goal change) and I was scammed and was worked incredibly hard with 16hr days and in the end, I had literally hurt myself for less than minimum wage, in fact, $5.15 per hour. I realized what was happening, but I stayed to obtain my pay, what a f'n joke. I can't find a job and there are a lot of opportunities here, my resume has been completely updated and redone for the new computer "keyword" scan to get from a database to hands, and I have a great work history. Still no work! What do I do? I'm on LinkedIn, Indeed, SimplyHired, DOL, Careerbuilder, etc... I'm at a loss!

This is a forum for open discussion on issues of politics, gender, and life in general. Please do NOT use this space for consumerism, this is an anti- consumerist forum!

Hey...Hey... Members, I've been slacking it's okay to give me a virtual smack down!  I propose a challenge to you, I challenge one of you to pick a topic you're passionate about and give it all you got!  I want to hear what you are passionate about and I want to learn something... I'm hungry for knowledge, new independent thought, and maybe even another activist cause/movement!  COME ON BABIES... GIVE ME WHATCHA GOT, TELL ME WHAT MAKES YOU HOT!! (No... not that way!)

Okay friendies... Since I've started this community I've gotten 11 members, but it seems that it's not a community.  I NEED your input to be a community!  PLEASEY PLEASE!!! Listen, if this puckered rear of a minority in the Republican Nuthouse led shutdown isn't something of a Discussion topic on this Community, I don't know what is!  I mean, we are the people that have to get other people involved in taking swift, organized, peaceful, thought-out, activism action...NOW!  There is no better time than now to get all of us "armchair activists" out of our armchairs... or should I say our noses out of our "Facebook" status updates, and start using our data phones for textivism, Facebook statu-sit ins, Googovernment demands, and Twell No We Won't Go! Regarding our rights being taken out from under us, somewhat like our future... address the fact that our taxes, average Working Poor(used to be middle class) is 25%... GE(Everyone knows about that)...and companies like them pay NO TAXES...if it gets sniffed out and reported on by a real journalist that works for a Grassroots or Overseas publication, where they can actually publish TRUE NEWS without their Capitalist Masters telling them no or not saying a word and it just disappears and is never printed, they might pay 5%... and we pay those Congress-people and Senators with our money, they don't have the right to shut down our Government.  IT'S OUR GOVERNMENT!!!!  They say it's over the ACA... but did you know that our government has a huge surplus of Helium from back when Blimps and Zeppelins were vehicles of war and our Federal Government receives quite a decent revenue on the sale of that Helium to Research Chemists, Corporations that need it for production reasons, it's used in MRIs...etc.  The groups and companies that had been purchasing this Helium from the Government knew that the bill created, I believe, during the Reagan administration...or renewed then, anyways, they knew that the bill was going to expire in October 2013 and had been pressing Congress about it...so finally in January of 2013 they had come together and created a coalition and went to Washington.  It got passed in the 11th hour, and the Congress went on a MONTH vacation in August... and we're talking about the fact that these Republicans are blaming their unwillingness to act on the Democrats and the President when in fact they couldn't even EXTEND a bill that had already been written that brought REVENUE INTO THE GOVERNMENT!!!  On top of that, during their "VACATION", the republicans wrote a bill that would use our tax money to fund a Federally Funded Firewall for large Corporations like AT&T(for example) to use discreetly if their system was breached by hackers.  First, THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO USE OUR TAX MONEY TO FUND A FIREWALL FOR BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESSES, THAT DON'T PAY TAXES AS IT IS...Secondly, DISCREETLY MEANS YOUR INFORMATION COULD HAVE BEEN ACCESSED AND YOU'D NEVER KNOW!!!  So.... comments my "Community"??  Kisses 

Come on members... share what 'cha know!  What is making you grimace?  I've got a topic coming down the pike, but I want to hear from you...this is our community, not just mine;-)  Let's hear it!!

The red states are the states opting out and voting for cutting funding for Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security... Hmmm what does red stand for again?  Read from the bottom up, so you get the information in order and it will make sense... and please research, comment, we don't have to agree but let's get a dialog.  It's more than what the government is doing.
