Racism, bigotry and separation of yourselves from the common folks is your m.o. That, my friend, is the reason that you lost the last election, but you guys never seem to figure that out, do you?
But keeing them on unemployment, taking handouts sorry, entitlements, food stamps, wic and so is the better option?

College loans are already bursting. Problem is that more people now have college education but can't find work in their chosen majors and have flooded the job market working jobs that are completely unrelated to their majors. That, to me, is a waste of time, money and education. And probably because they did not take the time to research it and figure out what was involved or the major entailed. A guy I know, went back to school for Anthropology. Unless you are going to go do research in some third world country on an extinct civilization or become the next Indiana Jones, not a lot of demand for that degree let alone career field.

When I chose to go back to school, I looked into geology, accounting and computer engineering. I have friends in the oil industry that could of put me to work looking for new wells and so on easily with a geology degree. However, the sacrifice of being gone 220+ days a year was more than I was willing to partake or subject my family to. Computer engineering was easy to rule out because as soon as a computer is built, it is obsolete. Accounting seemed to be the easiest way to make a lot of money the fastest. Hasn't proven me wrong yet.

Tell you all that to demonstrate what some forethought into making a decision based on good information and research will do for you. Unless your higher education is leading you to a path that requires licensure or a professional stamp of approval, you can get by on a high school education. But that higher education is not a right. It is a privledge. It is a privledge at a cost that is unreasonably high. One area the democrat president and I see eye to eye on. I know, beyond a reasonable doubt, the fact that education happens in institutions of higher learning is solely a by product. All colleges are in business to make money. Why do you think they over alot incoming freshmen? Because they know not all will show, but some will. And those some are bucks. Bucks that help the colleges become buck rogers. Parents take loans on the best notions for their children because every parent wants their children to be sucessful. And it is not a reflection, most times, when kids fail or flunk out of school. Just part of growing up. In the same token, they really aren't kids either. They are adults and if parents would treat them accordingly and not as a friend or peer, soceity would not be in the peril it is in. Instead, moms and dads want colleges to baby sit their children while they go to work and brag to their coworkers how well their kids are doing in school. Just my thoughts.

Don't know anything about that stock. You offering a poker tip?

Parents and students alike defaulting on their loans is no worse or better than people who took loans for mortgages they can't afford. Which is what caused the economy to tank in 2008.

Mitt the Twitt bull shit. If anyone spends even a dollar , they pay sales tax. If they buy a gallon of gasoline, they pay highway tax. If they own a car, they pay vehicle tax. If they own any kind of home, they pay real estate tax. If they rent, they pay personal property tax. If they drive on the turnpike, they pay road use tax (tolls). If they run a business, they pay franchise tax. Some people invested in municipal bonds with money they paid taxes on already . You need to take a big dose of exlax and drain that republikan bs off your brain. Look in the mirror, brown eyes, right?

So let's get this straight, on one hand you say there should be no difference between capital gains & income tax,(they should be the same rate), but on the other hand it's ok for the poor to just pay sales tax, gas tax, etc... Since the producers earn their money and are forced to pay taxes, lets say the poor, who take their money from those who earned it, pay.....say a cost of living tax. A tax for the people who earned the money for them and of course, an income tax on that welfare check since it IS their income. So if the income tax for working Americans is say 30%, lets tax the welfare checks at 60%,(30 for the earner & 30 for the recipient), so they can say they paid their fair share!

Here here pro. But this common sense approach is nonsensical or nonempathetic according to the Democrats including most on here. All they are worried about is why we don't want to hang out or be friends.

Which, last time I checked, didn't pay the bills.

Keep on being the enemy of the poor and needy and watch your party disolve into oblivion. Why should I object? Did you not see the signs of that coming in this election? What have you learned from these voting results? Probably nothing.

Obama has demanded state officials to decide by Friday, November 16, whether their state will create Socializes healthcare “changes." States also have to decide whether to implement the law's massive expansion of Medicaid. Obama’s march to forced communisms and enslavement to the state is in high gear.

I am stunned that Obama is already talking about compromise. I think he needs to call republikans bluff. If they want to completely tank the economy by continuing their frat boy game with the fiscal cliff, let it happen. The poor and former middle class are already suffering, let the rich join in the misery. Who will lose the most money?
