daveoverpar I guess it’s a matter of taste. I think they’re pretty, even if they weren’t saving anything.
Anyone who thinks they have the current world situation all figured out has proven by that simple notion that they are completely clueless.
The “F” bomb or any unnecessarily vulgar language is annoying and distracts from the movie. There are situations where it seems appropriate. For example, if you are falling to your death “heck” just doesn’t cut it. But, I don’t know anyone who actually is unaware that there are more descriptive adjectives and if I did, I would consider them to be a moron to be avoided as much as possible. Fortunately, it’s easy to do that with a movie, just switch to another channel or leave the theater and remember to avoid any more that are put out by the same people.
By arithmetic, in 30 years, we should be living in 2048. But if the senate confirms Trump’s nominee, in 5 years, we will actually be living in 1948.
Trump lost by three million votes. The jerk who messed up the election was Thomas Jefferson. The constitution was written to give equal voting rights to all rich white men. That eliminates anyone Black or female, so the constitution never came close to giving us a democracy. But, that wasn’t enough to be sure that the land owning white guys were actually in charge. It was possible that the lower classes could choose one of their own to be president. To prevent that problem, the electoral college was developed to keep out the riff-raff. The result has been that have spent 8 of the last 16 years with a president that wasn’t elected by the people, but appointed by the power structure in DC.
Just which of those words does Lila consider to be “big”?
Marvin was a lot cuter
Impeachment proceedings are brought in the house, not the senate, the senate then tries him, as a court proceeding. And, after November, who knows how that might turn out.
Striped Cat Not only is that not fiction, but most of us didn’t even need to go that much into debt. My first quarter at Southern Illinois University in 1967 cost $79 and we rented whatever books were needed for our courses for $20, standard, no matter what books were needed. I was a first generation college grad and my folks didn’t have much money to help out. A minimum wage or even part time job kept you in a crummy room and living on raman noodles. If you were lucky you could get a fast food job and live on the leftovers. And, I paid college grad taxes from 1972 on, and was never was unemployed in my life.
The average college graduate pays about $5800 more a year in federal taxes than the average high school graduate. Over 30 years, that totals about $172,000. If that’s divided by the 4 years it takes to get a college education, the government would break even if it paid every student $42,000 a year to attend school. This doesn’t even consider that with the degree, the person is less likely to ever need unemployment or welfare, that more students would complete high school if they could see a clear way to a really good job, and that they would be enriching the Social Security and Medicare funds. They would also be paying a larger amount in all other types of taxes.The best investment we could make to keep America strong is to not just forgive all student loans but to make all higher education, as long as the student is making decent grades, totally free, and increase the number of schools and teachers to make room for all who can profit from the education. We don’t, even at a time of high unemployment, have so much a lack of jobs as we have a lack of people who have the skills to perform the jobs that are available- in other words, a lack of education.
