My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
I like the qualifier that you have compassion right before you prove that that isn't the case. In any event, it's not really about compassion (although that aspect should not be overlooked). It's about the fact that our economy cannot truly start growing again until we do something about debt overhang. Remember that this isn't an ordinary recession, it's a fundamentally different animal because it involved a financial crisis caused by too much debt. And until we resolve that fundamental problem by helping people deleverage, economic growth will continue to be stagnant. Sure, we might get a brief spurt of economic growth followed by another dip into recession here and there, but on the whole the economy will not grow very much until people deleverage some of their debt.We have common sense, we also realize that life, isn't fair. I have compassion for your situation, it sucks, but crying about it doesn't solve anything, demanding that you get a to steal from others so your life is a little better makes you better then the "criminals" you are complaining about how again?
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

We have climbing tuition. Four years in a private college can easily cost over $200K. We have already provided mathematical models to show where it is not repaid.
More importantly, we have created the moral hazard. Once someone knows that their repayment is capped at 10% of income after taxes above the poverty line, there is no incentive to not become an education pig. It is essentially no different than someone who bought a house in 2005, but did not have to worry about whether they could afford it, as they assumed its value would keep going up, and they could take second mortgages, or sell for a profit, and therefore felt they were not exposed to the consequences of their bad financial decisions.

I support our youth and the future of this nation, so I support this plan.
With all of the money we've spent on wars since 2000, we could have paid off the nation's tuition debt and ensured that our most skilled and educated rise to their potential.
It's about time that the government showed some sense of social priorities.
Hmmmm... States paying less of the cost for educations."States are paying less of the cost than they used to," Baum says. She adds that as state budgets shrink, the students' share of paying for education goes up.
Capitalism has its downfalls.Terry Hartle of the American Council on Education says that's because schools are paying more for talent.
"Now we're competing in a global economy," Hartle says, "so if you want to get the best scientists, the best engineers ... you're literally competing with universities and employers from around the globe."
I guess government grants has its downfalls. The more people who have grants, the more the college can raise tuition. If a business knows its customer has access to money, would they not raise prices? Again, capitalism at its worst.Richard Vedder, who runs the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, says the more government aid goes up, the more tuition rises. He says limits on grants and loan subsidies would cap spiraling tuition prices.
Looks like another system that is screwed and rigged for the rich.The problem is compounded because people are less able to pay. Incomes are stagnant, some parents are unemployed, and many can no longer get low-interest home-equity loans because home values have fallen.

-JryanI'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).
