re: The importance of student debt to the consumerist economy - cas4t
[quote]Do you HAVE to go to grad school? [/quote] I didn't have to and chose not to, but some folks have a passion for the medical field, the law, teaching more than high school, etc. And an MBA is intended to further your career. So now we're at a point where we say "do you HAVE to get that...

re: The importance of student debt to the consumerist economy - cas4t
[quote]why so? I'd say the opposite is true. Maybe the opposite isn't "asinine" per se, but it's stinking thinking at best. [/quote] Because it's not necessary, is why. Tuition doesn't have to rise faster than inflation. Student loans don't have to be mostly backed by the government. It's not t...

[quote]There are plenty of colleges do not require asinine levels of debt[/quote] College I went to was reasonable at the time. Tuition went up by nearly $1000 each goddamn semester I was there though. So is everyone in this thread really saying this issue is on the students only? Statisti...

[quote]The correct response is "you don't have to go to college". More specifically, "many people who go to college shouldn't". [/quote] What a selfish line of thinking. There are some outstanding people who are doing great things who had to take out loans to get through school. [quote]The ...

[quote]that's just not true. i've told my story on here numerous times. i had no money for school. i chose not to go to an expensive school. i worked a 40+ hour weeks. i took 3,6, and 9 hour semesters. i didn't have nice things, i didn't eat out, i didn't go on fun vacations. [/quote] and there...

[quote] Also had government grants to supplement expenses.[/quote] well good for you. I wasn't in a situation where my family's income was low enough to attain grants. But they also weren't doing well enough to foot the entire bill for my college. I also worked full time. I waited tables an...

re: The importance of student debt to the consumerist economy - cas4t
To be fair, your mindset of "you don't have to take out loans to go to school" is not in any way a reality for the vast majority of aspiring students. If it were a reality, we wouldn't be in this situation....

re: The importance of student debt to the consumerist economy - cas4t
Tuition increases have been far greater than he amount of scholarships available to most aspiring students. This has been proven. Institutions have made it virtually impossible to attend college, undergrad or grad, without having to attain loans, unless you are upper middle class or upper class. The...

re: A story that will anger gun control advocates. - cas4t
[quote]Making it harder for me to buy a gun isn't going to stop the next person from stealing one and shooting up another school. [/quote] It's not all about you, though. And let them steal and kill. We can deal with them the same way we have been. There is nothing you can about people who are ...

[quote]If the laws are strict and even keep a dangerous person from buying a new gun, he will obtain one illegally either by private purchase, black market, or steal one. You can't stop it. [/quote] You can't stop anyone from committing any crime. But you can make it harder. [quote]The soluti...

[quote]With all due respect.. the gun control lobby is all about closing down gun shops, stripping folks of their guns and attacking all gun owners. [/quote] Not everyone feels this way. It's not just a single line of thinking that spans across and entire group of people-liberals. [quote]The...

[quote]No Rights should be denied because of the action of someone else.[/quote] Well we can agree to disagree on this stance. I am a firm believer that a few can ruin it for everyone. And it's only your Right because someone over 200 years ago decided it was. Times. Have. Changed. The populat...

[quote]You're for making it harder and increasing Gov't control[/quote] That's the point. It should be harder to get a gun. I don't see what's wrong with going through another 4-5 steps in order to buy a gun legally. I own, idk, probably a dozen or so guns. I'm willing to take the extra time and ...

[quote]Adric’s family got involved, but not in the way most would like to think. Instead of giving a wounded Adric the speech about crime and consequences, and how lucky he was to survive, the family turned against the Good Samaritan, arguing that if the customer’s life wasn’t immediately in danger,...
