Swine flu in N.Y.C.
Seems to be a big deal, but these "epidemics" happen all the time. The Swine Flu Epidemic of 1976 has received little attention lately as this new strain steals all the attention. Until hundreds are dead or infected across the country, I feel this "epidemic" is little more than a scapegoat for the economy. The more we talk about swine flu, and other exciting new issues, the less we think of the failing economy, failing job market, and failing government. Great ploy. Take heed, and follow government warnings from the FDA and CDC about swine flu, but DO NOT miss the bigger picture of homelessness/joblessness/failing economy.
I am still looking for a job myself. Nobody wants a 28 year old wounded veteran when there are hundreds of eager 18-25 year olds looking for the same jobs that have no physical/psychological issues. I also noticed, most of the men I served with are in the same position.
