Re: Occupy Wall Street

Everyone who achieves the American dream should be demonized and those who don't are free to sit around and complain, critique, incite paranoia and vengeance when the only parts of the constitution they recognize are the right to assemble and free speech.
They seem to overlook life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
There are nonagenarians pursuing college degrees; these folks could take out another student loan and earn another degree because it takes about 10 to earn a living or better yet join the military. It's that or get their asses on the dole.
They can't blame corporations these corporations hardly stay in the black when dealing with worldwide wack jobs.
Go crazy. live your dreams. you capitalist pig.

I have no sympathy for people who are buried in student debt. None.


Okay, so your gist is that people who get student debt should've known better. But pray tell, what can an average American even do if he needs to go to pursue tertiary education, but the cost thereof is so high it is virtually impossible avoid student loans?

Apparently these debtors had no control over their circumstances, as it's virtually impossible to avoid debt in American society. Please prove me wrong if I'm wrong!

This seems to be the real root of the problem.

I believe that we can be happy AND enslaved. But not free, right.

Re: Occupy Wall Street

And then again who is free after all? Aren't we all stuck to our bodies? Isn't freedom unnatural?

Re: Occupy Wall Street

If you take on $70k of debt, you sure as hell better be investing in a market that will need you. You CAN get a solid education in the States for a fraction of that cost. I did. Plenty of people I know did. We were careful, we were practical, and we (well at least I) worked hard as hell and lived lightly for years to create a secure adulthood. And even today, I still feel lucky to have the job I've got.

These people don't want to earn a job or a livelihood - they want to be given one. They even say as much. Watch for these words: "DESERVE" and "ALL I'M ASKING". Every article quoting these people has 'em. Think about what they're really saying.

Over generalizations again. Interesting how people will do that when they're trying to make a point.

Haha, yeah I said "people". So I'm generalizing you and your ilk. ;)
