Time to consider socialism with the failure of capitalism greed

Yep and…keep your sound advice…to yourself. It’s hate speech. :sunglasses:

Since Misty has received the 3020 treatment as a retread, it’s safe to say her so-called story is ■■■■■■■■■


Regardless. Job availability is scarce. In NJ you can probably land a job paying 15-16 bucks an hour. But you can’t live on that by yourself. You need someone else making the same just to get by. I did that back in the early 90s and we lived a relatively good middle class life. This isn’t the early 90s. I don’t know how people do it today.

Fun game!


  1. the fact of having a right to something.

Make the school pay the loan if the person doesn’t get a good paying job. That would dramatically change the system.

No it isn’t

…and there ya go. It isn’t a right, it’s a debt.

You paid into it for decades, of course you are entitled to it.

Bet the schools would eliminate certain degrees if that were the case.

What does your COL calculator include?

I spend well over $500 a month just to commute to work.

For what it’s worth, I just tried the Wallet Nerd COL calculator and compared my part of NJ with San Diego and it said CA was 28% less expensive.

Nope, sorry but I don’t do either of those.

What would Bernie say to the OP who has “around $100,000 in college debt to payback… with my human development & family studies degree.”?

You really think that he would say it is her fault for not choosing a degree path that offered and actual desired marketable skill?

Which would be a good thing.

Yet hundreds of millions of poor people in the US managed to work themselves out of poverty starting with the inception of the country and did so with no gov’t programs.

When poverty hurts people figure a way out of it.

And more did not.

The facts show us otherwise. Most immigrants arriving in the US arrived with virtually nothing other than a work ethic.

The vast majority of them worked their way out of it.


Wow that is a lot. I spend maybe 100.

Good clarification.

It may have sounded like I was supporting the taxing of wealth which I am not just to get that out of the way. The truth is that most people find their way out of poverty, at least to some extent, it is a revolving door of sorts. That doesn’t mean we don’t need jobs training programs and such to help them along, there are a helluva lot of people that were never taught a damn thing in life that could do better with a little knowledge.
