Pain People or is it pain persons ??
I be sitting here pondering !!!
We all are having a hard time financially especially since the high price of gas has raised prices on everything. I need to get money for gas to make it to Wyoming so I thinks I came up with a solution. Tell me what ya thinks ??
OPEC sells oil to us for $ 138.00 a barrel !
OPEC nations buy U.S. ( our) grain at $8.00 a bushel
My solution: Sell grain for $ 138.00 a bushel !
Can't buy it ? OPEC tough ! Eat Your oil ! !
Ought to go well with a nice thick grilled filet of camel***

Just pondering ! Your friend in pain and life tom

LOLOL Tom. Your so silly but your right with the high prices of gas and no end in sight its tough for all of us to make it on the little that we make. But on a more serious note; I am good Tom...got lots of help with the moving and everything. Hubby has everything handled and is going to get some help to handle the move and stuff. So don't worry about me hun....we got it under control.

But.......I know that each of us suffer as we try to make the bills, groceries and gas in the vehicles every day. I know that if it were my choice I would be working right now and not having this much difficulty with my pain, but its not like I can control this nor did I ask to be burdened with such a horrible debilitating problem.

Yesterday I was in a blue mood and told hubby that he deserves so much better then what I am dishing out here and you know what he told me??? He said comes with the whole vows thing and would take me no matter what. I cried!

I agree with you Tom. OPEC has us literally over a barrel. I don't travel much but that doesn't mean that the price of everything I buy hasn't gone up in price because of production and trucking increases. I don't see my government disability check being able to cover next winters heating bills let alone food and gas increases.I know alot of people on fixed incomes that are just hanging on by their finger-tips financially as it is and we all just might end up on the streets if things don't improve.Like we don't have enough problems already eh?

This is so true i aggree a 100%. I have been fighting for disability now since may sept its from my job i was in before i got worse again. So my children and i have to suffer as well. We are on the verge of being on the streets because there isnt anough help out there for people like us all. Something needs to happen or there is going to be another depression in the states!
