Pink Slip

Today, hubby was handed his pink slip.  We pretty much knew it was coming.  They’ve let so many people go and they’ve been holding regular meetings with those that are left.  It’s all due to the massive budget cuts.  I can’t believe this administration can keep spending money like there’s an endless supply, but can’t pay government employees and contractors.  It’s just ridiculous.

If the Obama administration got rid of some of his employees and quit taking million dollar vacations, the rest of the government employees and contractors would be working.  As is, DoD employees are going to be furloughed and that forces them to get much less pay.  Contractors are having to let employees go because even though the government signed contracts, there is no money.  Yet, Obama has the largest staff of ANY president and none of them make less than $100,000 a year.  That would pay 2-3 people at my husbands pay. 

Anyway, as hubby was handed his pink slip, he was told to head over to Human Resources.  He did that and was told that he got another job that he’d applied for, so he won’t be without a job.  However, he will be taking a $5 per hour cut in pay.  That’s absolutely huge for us, but at least he’ll be working.  Thanks to all the meetings, he submitted his resume early and was able to get this chance to move into another job. 

We’re very thankful that God watches over this family.  It is because he is so good that we’re going to be alright during this time when so many are suffering.  We’re thankful for what we have and will make it work for us and we’re praying for those that were let go the same time as hubby or are facing furloughs!!

Job Status

On a good note, hubby was informed that his job won’t be cut this time. However, 4 of the guys that he works with did lose their jobs due to budget cuts. His shop has gone from 300 employees to 85 in just months!! Hubby was informed that if there’s more cuts, he’ll be among them.

For now, our prayers have been answered.  I’m so thankful for that.  No matter how much you try not to worry, you can’t help it.  You wonder how you’re going to make the house payment and put food on the table.  Nevermind all the rest of the bills!!  I just appreciate all those that prayed for hubby’s job.  God is good!!  Now, we continue to pray for this country and the people running it that don’t give a crap about the rest of us.

Now onto my rant (of sorts)….

I wonder how much longer Obama and his administration are going to go on lying to the American people and them believing it!?! Look at all those people out of jobs, yet everyone on his staff makes in access of $100,000 a year. That pay for a useless position would keep several people on post in a job. He tells us that he supports the military and is making sure that they have jobs. Really….how so?? Practically every job on this post that has been cut because he can’t balance a budget is military or a family members. On this post alone, we’re talking a couple thousand jobs gone. That’s just here!!

Look at the unemployment numbers. Any little bit that it goes “down” is because people are running out of unemployment. They’re no longer part of the statistics!!

Cut the stupid spending. Bring jobs back to America. Quit taking vacations that taxpayers are paying for and can’t afford to take themselves. Pay for your own kids schooling. You don’t need secret service protection “for life”. Limit salary raises for Congress and let Americans vote on their pay raises….and set term limits. Get the illegals out and quit giving them more rights than we have and tons of freebies that taxpaying Americans don’t get.  Limit welfare and put an end to having kids for more money. 

Quit worrying about stopping flyovers at sporting events that promote patriotism.  Cutting that isn’t what’s going to help.  Get off the campaign trail and actually do something that’s going to help this country and bring some relief to it’s people.  Stop worrying about our guns and give more help to those that are disturbed and quit letting convicted criminals live high on the hog while behind bars.  Drill off the coast of CA or let them pay even higher prices for gas and find relief for the rest of us.

And those are the thoughts of just one fed-up American woman that loves God, her family, and this country!!
