Oh Poor Me...lol

Kinda My Story

Thursday, August 22, 2019 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Community

Once upon a time I was a homeless person. I had nothing.  I had my children taken from my by the Govt. because of my wife ( at the time ).  I had given up. Didn't care about anything, even whether or not I lived.

Because of this, I spent some time on the bottom.  So now, having come back from the depths, I have strong feelings about helping lost souls, people who have lost their way and need a hand in finding the way.... "Back Home."

 

So, in a chance to share, here are the lyrics, and the music, that keep me going, and inspires me to help others whenever I can.

 

I hope to inspire you guys to help when you can.  These aren't just words. I lived it.

 

 

 

I met a rag doll with button eyes
Looking so lost and cast aside
Begging spare change beneath the shadows
Of a sunset street light

I dug down deep into my pockets
Couple dollars was all that I had
She reached out like it was treasure
She looked so far away when she said
And she said

Show me the way back home
'Cause I've been out there running
For way too long
And all that I've learned

Is just when you think
You've chased down every last mile
There's always another one
I need someone to show me the way back home

So many lost souls along the line
It wasn't so long THAT SOUL WAS MINE
Feeling forsaken, down on my knees
Needing some mercy, asking please

Show me the way back home
'Cause I've been out there running
For way too long
And all that I've learned

Is just when you think
You've chased down every last mile
There's always another one
I need someone to show me the way back home
Oh yeah, ooh oh oh

And all that I've learned is just when you think
You've chased down every last mile
There's always another one, I need someone, yeah
Yeah, I need someone to show me the way back home

So many lost souls along the line
It wasn't so long THAT SOUL WAS MINE

Society keeps changing, Do not even want to imagine what our grandkids are going to have to deal with. I won't be here but they will and it scares me what is in store for their future.

Well, on the bright side, at least none of us suffer from what I believe to be one of the most repugnant combinations, it's pretty hopeless:

Extremely Wealthy & Extremely Clueless

That's all you got? Pitiful.

This post has gotten out of hand real fast.

Jim I apologize for this post getting political.

All I can say is things are what they are no matter who reports it. Wealthy and big business get huge tax cuts which drastically reduce tax revenue. Next thing you know Republican lawmakers want to screw the elderly and poor by reducing Social Security and Medicare. Nice. As far as I am concerned my Social Security payments are my money. I have been working and paying into Social Security and Medicare since 1969.

Then

Trump says he wants to cut payroll taxes then in less than 24 hours says he doesn't want to cut payroll taxes. What a joke.

Meanwhile

Trump and Co. falsely accuse the Fed that it's their fault there are recession fears and then talks about more tax cuts for big business. Trump wants the Fed to lower interest rates even more. It's a curious thing that Trump borrowed something like 360 Billion Dollars for projects right before running for President and lowering interest rates would help him profit. He's using the Presidency to make money for himself.

And

The biggest reason there are fears about another recession is the Trade War with China which is in reality like raising taxes on the middle class. The Tariffs are like an extra tax. All China does is charge more for products and we are the ones who end up paying.

Oh and by the way people who say the are worried about their Social Security being taken away by Socialists seem to forget that Social Security is a socialist program as is Medicare.

As far as I can see none of this is Fake News.
