15. This really hits home with me

 

I went through the same scenario in the early '90s. Lost everything: A good paying job, a good life for may family, pension, health benefits, self-respect.

A very profitable company that had its bones picked clean by greedy bastards who destroyed the lives of thousands of people to line their already overflowing pockets.

We tried to warn others back then but it fell on deaf ears. No one cared because they didn't believe it could happen to them. Now, less than two decades later, it has happened or is happening to everyone else and with the money people in full control I firmly believe it's too late to do anything about it.

It's like global warming. We're past the tipping point.

Welcome to the new world order.
