    Ahem, now about that $120,000 student loan …. That’s the ultimate “other shoe” that drops about 6 months after graduation.

    June is National Do Not Feed the Troll Month!
    Here’s how it works. If you run across an obvious trolling (inflammatory and provocative) comment, and you’re tempted to click “Reply” and set the troll straight, don’t. They will never learn, and feeding them just encourages them to keep coming back more frequently, persistently, and outrageously.
    If your finger’s still twitching and just HAS to click SOMEthing, go for “Flag” instead of “Reply”.
    Thank you for not feeding the trolls.

    Those young burger flippers and the low information inner-city voters are the reason we have that Hopey, Changey guy in DC.

    How’s that working out for you?

    I don’t know which is worse… being a young graduate unable to find work beyond the low-paying McJobs, or looking for work when you’re over 60 and even the McJobs don’t want you. And they say the recession ended years ago…

    But what about those among us who LOVE to troll the wingnuts in advance, as when I post something challenging the dubious intelligence of Ms Ima? Sending the blood pressure of some elderly right-winger into the stratosphere is what brings joy to my mornings.

    What will probably happen with delinquent Student Loans is that they may be treated similar to Medicare—while the patient/recipient is alive, Medicare pays the bills, but once they pass away, a lien on the deceased’s assets will be emplaced and all monies and properties seized and liquidated to satisfy this debt.

    I could easily see Student Loans heading that way, where if the borrower defaults over their lifetime, the debt, since it can never be wiped out, will have to be forestalled until the borrower passes away, and then any assets they have in their estate will be seized and liquidated to pay (or attempt to pay) for the debt.

    And in the end, it will either be the sleazeballs in government or the sleazeball attorneys who bleed their clients dry trying to fight for their inheritance who will come out financially ahead in this scheme.

    The price of higher education, like the price of health care, is exploding because the consumer is insulated from price increases by the benevolent government. Once easy access to government education loans dries up, the cost of college will have to go down, because the number of people able to pay for it will diminish. Simple supply and demand economics.

    Who ever said that “the current President was supposed to save us all from all the ills”? Sources, please.

    jack75287 said"Entitlement bad!" Sure! Just as Clarence Thomas, Mia Love®-Utah, and thousands of other conservatives who relied on entitlements for a leg up, but are now willing to deny that provision for others more deserving.

    How many burgers must a graduate flip to pay off six digit student loans? Hell, indeed.

    Ok Ahab and what are those Entitlements and have they paid their student loans back.
