    But I don’t “get” why Zonk and Zip should find SHOCKING the possibility of Walden selling shares to the public to get tons of $$$$$$$$ both from incurred public debt and government largesse via inane student loans.

    The kind of inane student loans that have no statutes of limitations, and payments of which are parceled out of your social security payments should you have the misfortune to not be able to pay them off before then?

    Perhaps predatory to offer them, but who is inane here? The student for being trusting in a future career being available? The loan officers in offering loans it is impossible to get out from under? The entire system in predating upon the young and thusly ensuring their lifelong enslavement to debt?

    Just sayin’

    You forgot add –
    No relief thru bankruptcy
    Guaranteed loans at exhorbitant interest rates


    Castration is too good for bankers!

    “. . . trusting in a future career . . . loans it is impossible to get out from under . . . predating upon the young . . . .”

    That being the case, why wouldn’t Zip be elated and rush to apply for a loan that gives him $$? We’ve got no “debtors’ prison” in this country. I’m mean, can he see that far into the future?

    I don’t know what you call a prison housing a person because of his debts.

    I went to the link, Pharmakeus Ubik, and here’s a quote from the news article there:
    π
    “A 2010 report by the American Civil Liberties Union that focused on only five states — Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Washington — found that people were being jailed at “increasingly alarming rates” over legal debts."

    The debt being taken on by students is costing all of us. Many of the most innovative businesses with explosive growth potential are created by young entrepreneurs. The middle and lower-class students who graduate with big debt won’t have that option. Countries who follow the more advanced approach of greater public finance for education will continue to reap the economic benefits. In addition to the young self-employed, high-tech companies move in to take advantage of the rest of the well-educated work force.


    We can in invest in our future, or mortgage it for tax cuts for people who don’t need them.

    “the usurper”? Dude, you don’t warrant engagement on any level with that bs. Take your vitriol and misinformation elsewhere, like a Fox page. It doesn’t belong here. It’s the COMICS!

    Yes, Speaker Boehner, where are the jobs? “Job creators” who are tax cheats, where are the jobs?
