re: Banks vs Education Lobbying - elleshoo9
[quote]Because they ain't lobbying for improvement in education[/quote] So this is partly my point. Why are progressives selectively picking on the lobbying efforts of the banking industry? What are the big banks/Wall Street doing that is so evil and holding people down? Or is it a fake crisis li...

re: Banks vs Education Lobbying - elleshoo9
[quote]germandawg[/quote] Fair point, no need to get all snarky. It would be interesting to see a list of politicians who have moved to Wall Street or the banking industry and their credentials for the job they have been hired to do. Either way though, it could be argued that the Education ind...

[quote]Wall Street straight up owns the establishment of both parties.[/quote] How so? Politicians are owned by campaign financing more than lobbying. My point was that Big Education owns them even more than banks/Wall Street. ...

re: Banks vs Education Lobbying - elleshoo9
Also, since funding is not the reason for underperforming schools, what is the reason for this huge amount of wasteful lobbying? This is nothing more than another example of government failing. Is the education industry lobbying for free tuition to attempt to secure permanent funding, despite th...

Banks vs Education Lobbying - elleshoo9
We see Hillary and Bernie constantly disparaging lobbying as an evil, talking about how politicians are controlled by big banks, the pharmaceutical industry, etc. What we never hear about are the lobbying efforts and campaign financing of BIG EDUCATION which have significantly exceeded that of b...

re: New Orleans Residents get in altercation during TV interview..... - elleshoo9
[quote]Frankly, looking at it historically and not being racist at all, these communities aren't that historically removed (240 years isn't that long) from the slaves. If you look back, things could probably be traced directly to that. An entire subset of society that was literally raised to be subs...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - elleshoo9
Thanks for the advice. The only reason I got Best Buy card was for no interest financing for 12 months and Macy's was for a big discount on a large purchase. I don't mind dropping either, but I didn't think they were hurting my credit. I've only recently stopped using SW card, so I guess I sh...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - elleshoo9
I don't know exactly how long I've had each, but I've had the chase freedom since college, southwest for about 3 years, and I just got the citi card last fall. I also have about $2000 credit each with Best Buy and Macy's, so that would reduce the impact of dropping southwest right? What would you...

[quote]Exactly, but that will create a huge, potentially very dangerous, shortfall for these jobs.

re: $250,000 income qualifies you for subsidized housing - elleshoo9
If you can't live comfortably on $250K in California or elsewhere for that matter, then it is likely because of government intervention that has prevented the free market from working. Or you are bad at life. If a person or family cannot afford something or it is not appealing to them, then they won...
