      KILL, RAPE,ROB AND LOOT!....then when ya work that outa yer system and ya've done yer prison time, commit another crime and become a recidivist 'cause yer institutionalized and ya get 3 "squares" a day, a bed, recreation, great health care and if yer lucky conjual visits and ya never have to worry about losin' a job again!

      Sound like a plan?

    If you are a socialist you get onto Unemployment benefits and look for another job.

      You mean if you paid into Unemployment Insurance you get it back and look for a job.

      I have been unemployed for 2 months now. Well, I do consider myself a freelance writer right now. I am doing a lot more writing online for upfront money.

      Money is taken out of my paycheck every month to go towards unemployment.  It makes me socialist to want that money back if I were to lose my job?

      Well then sign me up!  Guess it's socialist to want money I worked hard for!

    Regardless of who you are you find someway of staying fed and sheltered, and look for another job or comparable income source.  Which is certainly what I would do.

    I am without a job today - still on disability, though, for the moment. I'm updating my resume, looking at a lot of online job sites, and trying to market myself and my skills to everyone I know in the hopes that someone will be able to give me a job lead.

    Try desperately NOT to lose your sanity! I have been unemployed for (8) months. The requirements today are not the same as before. Luckily when I could put money aside, I did...and that's keeping me afloat.

    Buy and sell second-hand goods that you know something about. I saw a product on ebay I could have paid $1,114k for, spent $230 on and sold for 3,500 as I have many times before.

    Pick something with a decent margin and specialise.

    Interesting comment earnestshub and very true. I had two thriving stores throughout the 80s and 90s dealing in New and Used Sporting goods. I made a killing and profited for almost 10 yrs. A great idea when the economy is flushing itself down the toilet. Come up with creative ideas...and believe me the New and Used, mostly USED was a fantastic idea, I couldn't keep enough good quality used in my two stores. It flew out the door and the $$$ flew back in.

      The margin can be great on used goods, and the game is  "knowledge versus risk" one.
      The more knowledge you have the more margin you make with used goods. smile
      We all have something we know a bit about, the rest can be learned with good research.

    I would focus really hard on my websites.  I don't get much time to work on them now because I work a 40+ hour per week job, but I know if I were focusing 110% on them I would be making a killing.
