    Remember the whole 99% Occupy crap? They were telling people to stop paying for their student loans because "It's just not fair!"...or something. *eyeroll*

    Meanwhile, I'm 2 months away from paying back every single penny of $63,000 worth of student loan debt since 2004.

    Hello Maggie..
    I believe that student loans still pale in comparison to the public pension meltdown,
    as we see it being put off each day in our state, let alone the other 49 states plus the Federal pensions .

    And you will have a rich intrinsic reward to share with your students that noone can put a price on..
    Imagine all the kids you affect with your positive "hidden agenda", as my Principal once said about me .

    Not to get too carried away, but it's inconcievable to me that there is anything innocent behind loaning $10's of thousands of dollars to kids with no credit history, under terms that don't require the loans to start being paid back until some date years down the road.

    These colleges and universities, with the blessing of the forces behind them, have jacked up pay, feathered their beds while selling a more often than not, liberal objective, and left these kids with debts that will keep most of them poor for decades.

    There is a reason government backed student loans can't be discharged in bankruptcy. What a nice way to buy a generations of kids.

    You have no idea how much I hate this crap.


    Prices go up, so use taxpayer money or easy loans so everyone can go to college.... they can afford tuition because there are grants and loans, so the prices go up.... rinse and repeat...

    The easy availibility of loans and, more importantly, grants, are the main cause of soaring tuition costs.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    Gee, the rising cost of tuition wouldn't have anything to do with those multi million dollar salaries that universities and colleges have to pay football and basketball coaches nowadays, would it? The institutions of higher learning seem more interested in chasing balls than academia and teaching the young how to earn a living in the real world.

    I was thinking more of the college profs and the administration. Football makes money.

    Yeah and he also proposed in one of his first SOTU that college debt should be forgiven after a certain time. He said that no one should go broke in this country cause they sought an education. He actually gets it, but repubs (and some dems no doubt) have no desire to forgive debts so this emerging crisis is their fault really.
