Skip to comments.Ever Just Want to Give Up and Get On The Dole? ~ Vanity
Posted on 07/09/2014 11:03:35 AM PDT by GraceG
Ever wake up somedays and wonder why you work and put in the effort for others to leech off your hard work, especially those who are not even citizens.
Ever just think about just throwing your arms up in the air and saying to hell with it and quitting your job or shutting down your business and becomming a deadbeat like the other people that some of your hard earned tax money goes to.
Ever just wonder if we will never wake up again as country if you keep working hard to prop stuff up. Realizing that the only way for waking up the people would be for everything to just collapse and instead of trying to stop the collapse the best thing would be to rip the band aid off.
Ever just want to give up, walk away, move away, leave, tune out, and drop out....
Somedays, I admit, I do... and more often with each passing day....
I hope you’re right. I hope people don’t give up their guns when ordered to.
I know I won’t. They were all lost in a horrible boating tragedy anyway. (I see a lot of us are having those same sad problems..)
Yeah, I can’t compartmentalize. Once I know something like that about someone —if I find out they supported Obama, democrats, etc. — I can never look at them in the same light again.
“We opted not to take it from now on.”
Good for you. I didn’t realize not taking it was even an option on the 1040.
Lots of foster parents and guardians carry EBT cards. It is often because a court has ordered these benefits for the charges. I wouldn’t be so quick to draw conclusions just because you see a card.
Good to know, thanks.
A version of this is my plan for sure. I plan to buy a plot of land for cash and put up a few tiny houses, say three. Continue raising my own food (pork, chicken, veggies, lamb) and rent out two of the units for help and a little cash. Off-the-grid, no utilities. Bills are WAY low. Go on all the assistance programs I can and call it retirement. Overall I consider it to be a return of stolen property, hence defensible both logically and morally.
No. Never. I would prefer death and hopefully a happy greeting from St Peter.
“Become a hermit, fish/hunt/plant&harvest for food, yeah, I think about that. But the wife & kids keep that from being a real choice. “
Maybe when the kids grow up.
I’ve been pushing my husband to live a simpler, self-sufficient lifestyle for years now. I planted the seed and he’s finally decided he’s tired to working to support this fascist country. We don’t need ‘stuff’ all that much.
One of my two grandfathers came here from [redacted] with essentially the clothes on his back, and a desire to build something better. He worked in a factory, built 3 businesses, served in the US Navy, married a good woman and raised three fine sons; his grandchildren and great-grandchildren carry on his legacy of faith, family, honest work, and Service. The political elites, illegal aliens, and welfare parasites spit in his face (and, by extension, mine) and crap on his legacy ... I shall not join them. To Hell with them. Don’t give in to despair; in your darkest moments turn to The Lord. Honest labor is one of His gifts to us. He who built the whole of creation made us in His Image and Likeness. In our honest work, we reflect His Honest Work.
Ever ask yourself why we're having those problems? It's because, once again, we have consented and been entirely complicit in the destruction of the 2nd Amendment. I do not see where the 2A states "Shall not be infringed, as long as you have a background check". We all know they are keeping the records of our purchases. The FFL is required to keep them for 20 years. If it weren't for those FFL dealers willing to urinate all over the Bill of Rights just to make a little cash...if it weren't for us who CONSENT to that destruction by purchasing from FFL's, we wouldn't have nearly the amount of "boating accidents" we have today.
The idea they may write down student loan debt REALLY makes me mad. I am busting my butt to keep my kids with no college debt.
If I have to pay for someone else’s kids college debt; I will be very upset.
I wish I could.
I have a tiny condo on Florida’s forgotten coast. I’d like to go there, get on the dole and spend my time kayaking, going to the beach, riding my bike, fishing, and maybe writing.
But my dad and grandfathers would haunt me and I couldn’t provide for my daughters as I ought to.
Just go to TJ, sneak back across the border, say, “No speakee English. I am un Dreamer,” when apprehended, and you’ll be in like Flynn.
Do you propose buying and keeping a gun illegally then? That could have it’s own consequences. Although I’m all for civil disobedience. But we have to be willing to pay the price.
I’d rather purchase one legally, then have it be ‘lost’ at this time. When CWII progresses, things will change.
As luck would have it Im not that far from the border
You would have to renounce your citizenship, change your identity (after sending all your money to an off shore bank) and then leave the US for a while. But it could be done. But then, how could you live with yourself?
I'm proposing that the whole situation is our fault, as we have continued to consent. I dunno about you, but I'm tired of consenting to the destruction of my Country.
Long ways for that. We took in a relative's child after her Mom abandoned her. So now I've got one starting college and one starting kindergarten this fall (and one in between).
You think of it even more when you hate your job.
I keep telling myself ‘be thankful you have one’.

It pisses me off royaly as well, I scrimped and saved and didn’t buy nice things so I could pay it off only to see deadbeats skip aross the finish lines with their hands being held by Uncle Sugar...
When I retired after 39 years in the military, I got a part time job as a park ranger. I didn’t like the hours, so found a daytime job that is about 32 - 35 hours per week at the local hardware store.
I have always been a working man and am afraid I would turn into a tub of lard. I hit 208 after sitting behind a desk for about 20 years, and now am back to 177 since I retired from that job.
My answer is NO WAY.
Isn’t that the allure and ultimate poison of socialism rather than liberty as a form of government.
Governments with the ultimate goal of liberty, Free Republics, have the structure to promote self-reliance and work allowing individual liberty.
Governments with the ultimate goal of equality of outcome and government being empowered to “effect change” and manage all results count on the citizenry reliant upon that loss of liberty that is dependency.
The goal of the later government is a compliant and needy proletariat giving little to society except their progeny. A few elite, enlightened leftists, get the only measure of freedom and that even is limited to the freedom of power, the freedom and risk of a tyrant or group oligarchy.
The Marxist promise of Workers of the World Unite, You have Nothing to Loose but Your Chains, is the promise of the socialist dream of government. The unity is unity in surrender and the resulting loss of the promise of liberty.
I’m 49 also , I closed my business in dec 2012 sold most of the equipment. I do not qualify for unemployment because I’m the one that close the business , 18 yrs of paying for unemployment down the tubes. So I took some roth $$ and took six months off and then went to work for another place for about a year.But he was an a$$ and a crook so I quit. I made a sign stuck it in front of my house and take what work I get.
About as galt as I will get, but no handouts from from the gov.
They ought to take away the right to vote for anyone under 70 who’s on the dole. They’re not participating in America the way they ought to and shouldn’t be able to vote themselves more benefits.
Damn right.Going to work everyday and putting up with the crap of serving the public and your employer and getting reamed with taxes just to support a government that stabs you in the back the first chance it gets.
I look forward to retiring after working since I was a teen.To hell with it.
My problem is that I’m sooo sick and tired of the Marxist bast##d in the White House (as well as too many limp wristed Repubs in Congress who won’t stand up to him)that I honestly wonder how I’ll make it through another couple of years of his horsecrap.
No. They have to keep them as long as they stay in business. If they sell the business, the new owner has the same responsibility including the old records. Otherwise, the FFL has to turn the records in to the ATF Out-of-Business Records Center.
I have been trying to get my wife to realize happiness does not correlate to how much stuff a person owns.
We have a second home (fully paid) in the north woods of a northern state and we have the resources to live a comfortable but scaled back lifestyle there. My wife refuses to do so at this time so we are both cought up in this infernal rat race.
I sure hope I can soon convince her to let go.

Isn’t it (not-so)funny how you can pay into a system for years and then get screwed over while some pot head with a mental disorder like social anxiety disorder can live off gubermint bennies...
Yikes! Even worse! I was under the impression it was 20 years. And yet, we consent to it! Even worse, those FFL’s are making money, off you and I, while the 2A is destroyed.
Well, er, huh, I think what you say has merit but remember what the Third Reich counted on for victory. One armed soldier to control a group of several hundred too terrified to rush him for his weapon. We now know how well that worked for them. Today, one must also factor in the use of armed drones remote controlled by mercenaries to target all with their weapons of choice (bio, chemical, etc.,)for culling mass populations. Doesn’t everyone just love my optimism?
I just loved your post. Thank you.
My wife had to brow beat me into applying , I said I’m a white male it won’t work . I was right and I was pissed.
There is conflicting info on it. 27 C.F.R. § 478.129 states that such records must be maintained for at least 20 years.
18 U.S.C. § 923(g)(1)(A) (ATF) gives no limit.
Why would anyone choose to miss out on the greatest event in history! Stay here and get involved!
Joining up with the robbers in order to get “cash back” reparations is the highway to permanent ruin and desolation. The thieves will die “doing what they loved”.
I’ve seen real institutional persecution of Christian brethren in the third world.
Trust me when I tell you that as Americans WE ARE NOT READY TO ENDURE WHAT MOST OF OUR BRETHREN SUFFER.
That was a painful lesson, I, myself head to learn about MY OWN FAITH.
We’ve all been infected with the Health/Wealth Osteenification of Christianity in this country.
When you are sick, miserable and without the comforts we take for granted, such as water, electricity, A/C and are constantly at risk of being beaten, cheated, harassed and those you love beaten and even killed - much of what we assume about our faith and Jesus saving us out of every trial is just a mirage of our own culture of prosperity that we grafted onto Christ.
Brethren in the Third world will enter the Kingdom before we will.
46% income tax?
Do you live in Philly?
I know a young 20 something who got fired because she was off her meds(her choice). Now gets a ‘crazy check’ and goes on trips to Europe.
These are the people who are capable of the worst persecution and damage, because they know our habits, deeply-held beliefs, and weaknesses. Their loyalty is to the beast system, because the beast is their god.
I was reading some comments the other day on a Yahoo article about the cop who killed his wife, kids, and MIL, and then himself. This was a LEO who had drugged, raped, and filmed his assault on his wife, and had even shown it around. Many of the comments were critical about how the wife confronted her psycho criminal husband, because it obviously enraged and set off the psycho.
Not blaming the victim(s) for the acts of a crazed lunatic, but they were pointing that there were wiser ways to handle the situation.
There were many personal anecdotes from those who left without tipping off the abuser, or left quietly when the lunatic was away from home. Some described taking months to plan out their escape, and made sure to keep it to themselves. Some were threatened and persecuted, but ultimately they got out alive with their kids.
People need to consider how much their beast-loving associates know about them, how much access they have to their lives and kids (and fix that!), and what these nuts could do if "dissed" or "crossed", because things *will* go south. Bad enough to have some anonymous goverment goons after us, but why just hand over the keys to people we already know are in agreement with the dark side?
Francisco d'Anconia, Ragnar Danneskjöld. and John Galt thought so.
“I dunno about you, but I’m tired of consenting to the destruction of my Country. “
Oh, I am so with you.
That’s why we are quitting work next year and will set up a homestead that can be somewhat self-sufficient. We will quit contributing to a fascist government. And will wait - if CWII comes, we will be ready. (As long as it doesn’t happen in the next 8 months) I am so disgusted with what is happening that I am almost hoping that a chance to rebuild will happen. I don’t see any ‘fix’ that will work at this point. Not with all the sheeple.
Wonderful of you to take her in.
“About as galt as I will get, but no handouts from from the gov.”
Good job. I hadn’t thought of the sign in the yard. Guess we’ll be doing that too ;) And if nobody calls, we’ll go fishing, hiking, or work in the garden. Sounds like a good life.
Hope you are happy!
I was out of work once. My buddy ran the unemployment for this county (or however it was set up.). He kept telling me to come down and he would push it through.
I shrugged it off and started my own business.
That was fourteen years ago. The only govt assistance I take are the same legitimate tax deductions any small business owner takes.
I guess I could have “taken” more, but it just never felt right. I’ve learned not to judge others. But that’s mt story.
Not getting rich but it works. our garden is going great and I gotta take my son and his nerd herd on a hike on Saturday on north pack.
thanks and I hope your plans work as well. family is better than a rat race.
With God’s help you will make it and I hope you do.
I hope things change for the better on my home front and we can bug out of here soon and I thank you for your well wishes.
I’ll keep you up to date. Take care.
