Unemployment Skyrockets Among Veterans

Unemployment Rate Skyrockets among veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

According to the reporter…
“the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that for the first three quarters of 2005, nearly 15 percent of veterans aged 20-24 are jobless -- three times the national average.”
That’s pretty high; though there are many inner city communities with similar statistics.
“[T]he high unemployment rate is ‘partly because most … seriously injured in [combat] are in the early stages of their military careers and possess limited transferable job skills or very little civilian work experience.’”
In other words, these guys were poor and uneducated before they entered the armed forces and they remain that way upon surviving it.
"The tragedy of homelessness among veterans persists, even when the economy is robust and unemployment is low…"
That’s because the monetary system is our biggest problem—not Iraq or Afghanistan! These young men fought the wrong war, for the wrong reasons.
"Homeless veterans require remedial education, job-search and counseling assistance, medical services and transitional housing in order to re-enter the labor market…"
And, the only way for them to get it is by directing our human capital to put an end to our nation’s privately owned interest-based monetary system--a colossal siphoning machine that siphons the blood, sweat and tears of the working class and channels it in the form of CASH to idle moneylenders.

There is NO WAY to pay for all the things we need to do for these men and many others as long as we are spending over ONE BILLION DOLLARS A DAY to pay INTEREST on U.S. Treasury Bonds which are all owned by institutional investors, domestic and foreign!

This was never the way our monetary system was designed to work under our Constitution!
"If the Nation can issue a dollar bond it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good also.

The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets the money broker collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%. Whereas the currency, the honest sort provided by the Constitution pays nobody but those who contribute in some useful way.

It is absurd to say our Country can issue bonds and cannot issue currency. Both are promises to pay, but one fattens the usurer and the other helps the People."--Thomas Edison 1847-1931
Please, learn about how money is supposed to work; pass the truth on; and to the best of your ability, stop paying, borrowing, and accepting dollars.

When their CASH COW (us!) dries up, they’ll have no one left to milk, and they'll start listening.
