This was from the article on student loans that you posted....


Sarah Kostecki,
a 24-year-old sales associate in New York, graduated last year from DePaul University with a major in international studies and $87,000 in debt, translating to monthly payments of $685, the vast majority of which are private loans. The payments represent more than a third of her take-home pay, and to help her make ends meet, her grandparents are giving her $200 a month toward her debt this year. Beginning in January, she'll be on her own, and she worries about falling behind. "It feels like I'm being punished for having gone to school," Ms. Kostecki says.


$685.00 a month student loan?!

She IS being punished for going to school. That's how we do things in this country. Hook em - and hang him. Don't let em get out alive - remind them that the educational system is a good system - and keep education really expensive - so we can keep 'em indebted and in our "we own you" box for a lifetime while they pay us back.
We'll bail out everyone - but not them....

We cannot survive this way and nothing is being done to change that. NOTHING.

Our time at the top is almost over and the rest of the world knows it.
I'm sad to say, but I think you are right. No ammount of "positive thinking" is going to change the facts, and they get clearer everyday.
When it goes bad, and it will soon it seems, it ain't going to be pretty.
Stock up folks, take a look at your situation, and make your plans for the big show. it's going to start soon. the previews are playing now, and the main feature will start in a short while.
