When it comes to making higher education more affordable, Washington has a go-to answer: "Sorry, we can't afford it." But when the Wall Street banks that crashed our economy ask for a favor, it seems like there's no limit to Washington's generosity.

Case in point: While federal student loan rates are set to hit 6.8% on July 1st, banks can still borrow money from the government for a mere 0.75% interest.

We treat our corporations better than our children. That's not what parents do. Plain and simple.

Elizabeth Warren and DFA are working to fix that double-standard. If a student wants a little help paying for their education, they should get the same deal as Wall Street's biggest banks. Senator Reid has scheduled a hearing on Elizabeth Warren's new Student Loan Bill this week. Write your Congressmen and urge them to stand with Elizabeth Warren. For the first time in history, Americans owe more in student debt than credit card bills. For a new graduate, that burden means sacrificing dreams -- buying a home, opening a business, starting a family. It often means struggling simply to make ends meet.

This is our next crisis. If we don't act now, we cripple our kids' futures, and set our entire economy up to fail again. "If you're one of the 37 million Americans with student loan debt, you're in for a real treat come July 1. That's when interest rates on federal student loans are set to rise to 6.8 percent—double the current rate of 3.4 percent. That deadline has lawmakers scrambling for a fix. There are a bunch of proposals out there, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for students to be allowed to pay the low, low rate that big banks pay for short-term borrowing; a plan President Barack Obama laid out in his budget in April; and the GOP plan that just passed the House—a plan Obama hates." Student Loan Debt Is a Beast. Here Are Elizabeth Warren's, President Obama's, and the GOP's Plans to Fix It.

A friend of mine from Vermont told me this story that was like a kick to the gut of my democratic innards.'At the dentist's office two days ago, the dental technician confided in me that the government controls the weather. They've got three machines in this country, she said, four more in Europe, and four more she doesn't know where. A little internet research shows that this has become a conservative meme--only it isn't "the government" (which is evil enough) but Obama, personally, who is behind things like hurricanes and tornadoes. To one who cut his intellectual teeth on a vision of a democratic republic ruled by citizens who can listen to sensible arguments and make informed choices, this really was a kind of gut punch.(The richest country the planet has ever seen, which could afford the best educational system ever in history, has produced idiocy like this?) Jumpin' Jehosephat, as they say in these parts. She was a little sketchy on the provenance of her information, but I think it comes from the Fat Man with the Mike. If prayer worked, this guy would have a heart attack. Another one, I mean. Fatal this time.'

Like most, my Doctor's waiting room has a TV. And, of course, it is crammed with Liberal Media presentations. When there, I hardly watch and instead read magazines(which are part of Liberal Media, too, unfortunately).

However, last week was different. All of the Liberal Media magazines were fluff, political propaganda and shallow as hell. Kardashians, Advertising for The Magic Negro's Health Care, Moochelle's New Guano Based Facial Mudpacks, Angry Young Black Man Stories,...the usual c rap but heavier than normal this time.

After fanning through all the magazines, I was left with that sorry Flat-Screen TV to pass the time with. Believe it or not, they were detailing the humongous blobs of unruly fat lumping up Kim Kardashian's trash-bin body. She looked like the Michelin Man in drag with Repair Plugs hanging out all over. She had been riddled by a Botox Machine Gun. Typical Liberal Media fare. Up next: Are Mermaids Real Or Are They Myth? Oh, jeesh! They went to commercial.

The guy next to me began making conversation. He just started telling me that he was looking forward to Obamacare. I simply nodded in silence. Then, the Mermaid Story came back on. This guy began filling my ears about Mermaids. Says that he caught one in the Great Lakes last year. He turned it over to the DNR and he hasn't heard from them since. Told me his friend caught a luminescent Green Fish that the University of Michigan says is 50 million years old. To my tremendous relief, his wife came out just then and he rose to leave. He smiled at me and left with her.

Liberalism is working folks. And it scares the hell outta me.

Money for education is mostly Washington bait used for control. It is sewage. We need to clean out the bait, stop the sewage and return schools to local control.

Read several stories in the past week about 5 year old kids being suspended. One for bringing a plastic soldier to school. Another was sent home for making a gun with his index finger and saying aloud "Bang!".

The culture of academia has sunk into the stinking ooze of Socialism, of central control, of Obamacare and Holderitis. The Brown Shirts smile a lot as they hold their daggers behind their backs.

Obama continued the war in Afghanistan and extended it to Pakistan.

That's not how it happened.
The new perspective came from the original police report which noted Zimmerman had a bloody nose, gashes on the back of his head and grass stains on his back. Obviously there had been some sort of fight. Zimmerman had told police that as he moved to go back to his vehicle the teenager asked him if he "had a problem." When he answered, "No" and reached for his phone to make another 9-1-1 call, Zimmerman said Martin declared, "Well, you do now," and knocked him to the ground. The young man then bashed his head into the concrete several times and in the scuffle, Zimmerman claimed, he shot Martin in self-defense. An eyewitness backs up this account saying the person in the red shirt (Zimmerman) was being beaten by the person in the dark hoodie (Martin). ABC News then broadcast grainy video of Zimmerman arriving at the police station in handcuffs and none of the injuries listed on the report were visible. Days later, ABC enhanced the footage and apparent head wounds were suddenly visible.
Martin lurked between the houses and accosted Zimmerman as he walked back to his vehicle. Martin choose not to go home. Likely he was casing houses, looking to steal. Martin was a known thief.
The young man could have easily avoided the confrontation and the ensuing attack by continuing his walk home or staying out of sight, no question. But Zimmerman could have also complied with being told to stay put and letting the police handle it. They were there within minutes after Martin was shot.

It's up to the jurors to decide.

During negotiations over the 2009 economic stimulus package, Bob Woodward reports that, when Obama called Nancy Pelosi to discuss the bill, she put the president on speakerphone so other Democratics in her office could hear him but, when he kept on talking, Pelosi pressed the mute button.

"They could hear Obama, but now he couldn’t hear them. The president continued speaking, his disembodied voice filling the room, and the two leaders got back to the hard numbers," Woodward wrote in his book,'The Price of Politics'.

Of course, Pelosi denied it because, as we all know, Woodward is known to be such a big liar.

It's actually pretty funny.

As much as they try presenting a common front, Liberals are cat scratching each other in the dark.

I spent the first 8 years of my life in the Urban Jungle before wising up and heading to the burbs. I had been robbed three times, attacked twice with a knife, shot at in my car and threatened daily for my skin color. A few more years there in the burbs and I reached the pinnacle of social wisdom and headed for the countryside.

Now I can watch you on TV. COPS, Bounce and the nightly news crime reports. A front row seat with none of the filth touching me.
