I'm tired too.

At the ripe old age of 52, I've gone back to school to become a nurse. I also work full time. I've been working mostly on, but sometimes off (because of babies) since I was 16 years old.

My husband currently works anywhere from 45 to 60 hours a week. He's been working since he was about 12 years old. He's a welder/fitter in a structural steel shop and the hard work is really doing a wear-and-tear number on his body.

We doubt we'll be able to retire at 65 since we've lost at least $50k from our retirement funds since Obama kept his stupid mouth open longer than it should have been, and his worshippers have decided this is the way the world should be.

I too am tired of people who, with little to no effort, seem to have more than we do in material things even though we know those things are not as important as other things. Still, with all our hard work and looking to provide for ourselves in retirement, it's hard not to wonder why we don't run out and indebt ourselves for a brand new car or house or a cruise (which I'm really wanting mostly for my husband to rest up, eat lots and sit in the sun for awhile).

We've spent our resources raising three children, paying for private schools for them, and further schooling.

We're in the process of helping our son settle after being in the service for five years.

My oldest daughter is getting married in April, and instead of having a certain sum of money to give her for her wedding and gift, that amount was cut in half because of the Obama mouth never shutting up about the crisis we were in. We're also paying her student loans.

We're paying for school and will be paying student loans for the youngest, too. She'll be done with sound school at the end of May, and is thinking of getting an actual degree for it after, hopefully after she finds a job.

Yeah, I'm tired. Really tired. Not because I tire of my family, but because of the thieves in government who seem to think we're an endless well of cash.
