re: Instead of student loan debt forgiveness, just make it dischargeable... - moneyg
[quote]While your statement has merit, I doesn't take things in context. [/quote] :lol: [quote]1. Major changes. Most college students change their major once, sometimes up to 3 times (more in certain situations). [/quote] I find it humorous that you think the taxpayer should foot the bill...

re: NCAA says California schools could be banned from championships if bill isn't dropped - moneyg
[quote]Yeah I think we’ve got to find an alternate route for the players wanting to make professional money immediately. NBA will have that fixed in 2022, but the NFL is the main issue. There is no option. [/quote] There is only no option because the players would prefer to play in the NCAA r...

[quote]How voluntary is it[/quote] Completely voluntary [quote]How voluntary is it really when the NCAA is a monopoly and the NFL and NBA won't let you enter the league straight out of high school? [/quote] The NFL and NBA rules have nothing to do with the NCAA. And, the NCAA isn't imposi...

re: Instead of student loan debt forgiveness, just make it dischargeable... - moneyg
[quote]My concern is that an entire generation of college educated folks will shy away from having children/families as a way to work around the logistics of student loan debt while the welfare generation continues to multiply. I'm guessing you can see the issue there. [/quote] I'm definitely not...

re: NCAA says California schools could be banned from championships if bill isn't dropped - moneyg
[quote]If NCAA allows student athletes to profit off their name while still maintaining NCAA eligibility, its ripe for abuse and its going to make the gap between the top tier programs and everyone else even bigger. School wants a big time recruit? Now a booster can offer them big bucks and not ...

[quote]o act like this won't have a negative affect on the US going forward is leaning too much on tribal ideology and not enough on the reality of the situation[/quote] What's your concern? That people simply won't be able to pay their debt and the government will have to eat it? And, your s...

re: I worked 2-3 jobs at a time to pay off my student loans - moneyg
I think it's pretty telling (and amazing) that people are more pissed about missing out on this opportunity than they are at the "reality" that they would be continually paying for the education of all others moving forward. It's a sad state of affairs, IMO....

re: delete - moneyg
[quote]It's not even close to half. It's simply the NBA caving to a vocal minority of people calling for this change because what you call the 'owner' ultimately doesn't matter. It's just easier to keep the vocal minority appeased, shake your head, and move on. [/quote] Disagree. When you ad...

[quote]I JUST paid back my loan in full. This is fricking bullshite [/quote] While that is unfortunate, that's really not the bad part. The bad part is that YOU will now be paying off the loans of people who didn't pay of their loan. This is much worse than just being "unfair". You are going to...
