Healthcare is going to go downhill just as fast as education. In my time in high school, I saw first hand the best teachers quit because they didn't want to deal with the politics and the system being forced on them. Doctors will do the exact same thing.

I also see education and healthcare tax money wasted every single day on people who could pay for themselves, but choose not to. Why spend money on stuff you need, when you can buiy a big screen TV and have the government pay for the necessities? My "middle class" parents have worked two full time jobs to support me and pay their taxes, yet we live with less material posessions than people I know who don't work and recieve government support.

It frustrates me that it is my generation that put Obama in office. The 18-25 group which normally represents a small portion of votes all went out to vote for Obama. Voting is one of the greatest things about this country, but the fact is that most of the people who don't normally vote, really don't know anything about politics. So people voted for Obama without understanding his intentions, or were naive enough to think that he could solve all the country's problems without raising taxes or increasing the deficit (which any intelligent person would know is impossible.)

I normally don't get involved in politics either, but I'm working hard to get my degree, so I can get a good paying job. And because of that, I will be paying out of MY pocket for things that I don't want. And it's not just me, it is the MAJORITY of the country. I feel offended that Obama is able to pass a bill that the majority of the country opposes, because to me that says "We don't think you are responsible or intelligent enough to make your own choices in life, therefor the government will make them for you."

Although I don't know if I would want to live there. Beautiful place, but the average IQ of tourists at Jackson Hole is about 4. And they outnumber you a million to one.

This whole thing just makes me more apathetic towards politics. Nobody knows how it's gonna work out, and now we just have to sit and watch while everyone bickers.

Another man's hell is another man's heaven I guess, or vice versa. I got on lucky in my opinion, You wouldn't expect how many people are trying to get the same job. I was going for Sun Valley, Idaho but Idaho seems to boring even though I consider Sun Valley one of the most beautiful ski resorts in America. Cool thing about tourists is they're always different . I was once a tourist to Jackson Hole myself, back when my IQ was 4.

It seems that way for the first week or two. I don't think I could deal with it for very long.

I would like to get a summer job at Deep Creek lake, but DCL isn't close to the level of tourists in Jackson Hole. Plus, way more babes in bikinis at DCL.

I think to it like being a ref at a field, or this website for that matter, keep answering the same questions everyday and I'll have it made. A lot of places are nice but getting the job you want at that certain place is next to impossible, I didn't want Jackson Hole but I'm not complaining, it gets me out of Missouri.

Actually, comparing it to a paintball ref is pretty good. But I lost a lot of faith in the human species in the time I spent reffing. One big /facepalm.

Obviously, any job is nice if it means living where you want to live. I just think there are nicer places out there than Jackson Hole.

You lose a lot more faith in humanity working at a movie theater. Trust me.

I'm actually in shock about some of the offers people have pm'd me. Not only can they not read, but people think PMR = Ego8 in value. And think I will ship first to someone with 3/1/1 feedback.

And of course all the people who post decent offers only log on once a week/don't reply to pm's.

This will sound nerdy but don't care, I feel like a Jedi who has went through countless/pointless virtues in my years of being a Ref to help the better of n00bs. I'll never do it again though, it's a crap job for teenagers and border line slavery and to be honest I think it's what truly burnt me out on Paintball or driving all day looking for a whack tournament.

Paintball just got lame. Im happy I played and quit when I did. Nothing new really seems to come about anymore. I just started skating instead. So much cheaper, so much easier to do (as far as places and times to do it), and its plain fun. So simple too. No need for hundreds of pieces of gear.

I haven't paid over $30 for a case of paint since '05 and usually get it for free, probably the only reason I still play. And I always though driving for hours at 5am trying to find some whack tournament was one of the best parts. But yeah, definately easy to get burned out, and I don't play nearly as much as I used to.

I did it for awhile and it was great. Got paid $8 an hour, hung out all day at a place I loved hanging out at (paintball shop/field) with lots of people I got along well with, got tons of discounts, had a cool boss, made my own work schedule, and didn't have to work during the week.

But the employment situation at that field was much better than at some other fields, where they don't pay as well or only pay in paint. It was long hours too and not as fun when the weather was bad, but I didn't even mind that too much. We just made fires when it was cold out. And working 11 hours in a day wasn't too bad because it meant I could make $88 in a day, pretty good for a teenager, especially since minimum wage in Georgia was $5.15 at the time.

And I reffed for some celebrities, so that was cool too. Anyone heard of Story of the Year and Lil Bowow? I actually mentioned that experience when I had an employment interview for a law clerk position recently. Who'd expect paintball to help my legal career?
