I really hate to hear about this stuff happening to people. And its extremely frustrating to see so many people really high up actually making things worse to drum up support for their agenda. Depressing.
the Army will take whoevers willing. Youre over 18 and under 40 we'll take ya. Job security right there. Although I doubt that the defense budget is safe for very much longer. Its already taken one hit, im sure there are many to come.
And BTW to any and all who are interested, if it really gets bad up there. There is daily talk in the news locally that our job market is very strong in Texas, especially in the San Antonio metro area. We're actually still growing. Check it out. Texas is riding out the reccession alot better than the rest of the country. There are no closed shops so union membership isnt required plus very few TX based banks took part in the sub prime market and even fewer took bailout money so there is actually credit too.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-John Stewart Mill
