I was pooping. I do that a lot. I also somehow just successfully told capcha that a bike in a crosswalk was a fire hydrant.

What do you think about the tea party?

>> No.15481893

Much like occupy wallstreet it seemed like a grassroots movement started by common people angry at the banking system but not informed enough to know exactly what to be angry about. This led to them having very imprecise stated goals and left the door open for the powers that be to enter and take over the movement. Occupy wallstreet had their own issues with women and trannies being allowed to be a nuisance, but I see them both filled with the same rage, and mislead easily by our overlords.

I was eager to get a job since 2006. I finally became of working age in October 2008, right as that V was bottoming out. Everyone was getting laid off and taking whatever they could get. I managed to find work after thumbing it everywhere for months and filling out a sea of applications.
In 2010, I got trained at a convenience store with a guy who was a senior engineer for over a decade until his company decided to lay him off.
Around 2013, I waited tables with 2 guys who made bank in the mid-2000s subprime real estate game.
