I’m 25 and unemployed (sort of). That’s a big issue, right? Like Winona Ryder in the movie “Reality Bites,” who said “I was really going to be something at the age of 23,” I believed I was supposed to be something by now.
This is in reaction to Neal Cruz’s column, “P-Noy has no plans to solve unemployment” (Opinion, 7/30/14).

I wanted to hear (and I’m sure millions of other Filipinos did, too) President Aquino say in his State of the Nation Address last Monday how he intends to solve the acute unemployment problem in the Philippines. But beyond saying that an additional 1,165 million Filipinos were employed from April 2013 to April 2014, there was nothing more. Yet unemployment is our biggest problem and the cause of widespread poverty. Solve it and you also solve a lot of other problems.

“Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” That was supposed to have been said by US Adm. David Farragut during the American Civil War. It means, if you want to win you have to take risks.
