Targeting the lost youth vote

I’m guessing that’s why Obama is making noise about student loans. Another bail out coming.

    yup. Vote for me! Vote for me! Country in the crapper, ballooning debt, don’t worry. I’ll give you “free” shit.

    As much as I’d like to have my loans disappear, I am not one to steal from my fellow taxpayers.
    Sure, I didn’t get a job straight out of college. I spent a long time working shit jobs to pay the bills (including my student loans).
    I am part of the 99%. The group that isn’t sitting on my ass pitching and moaning how they are so downtrodden. I wish we could drop them in the third world for a while just to let them appreciate all the things they take for granted…like food and wireless internet on their iphone.

    Kids today! I say they should find obscure deferments, plead financial distress, marry rich and pay until they are over 40 like I had to do.

    One advantage of burdensome student loans: Years after graduation, when a freshman student earning work-study hourly wages calls you asking for a donation to your alma mater, you can cause them vast pangs of doubt by telling them your age and that you are still paying off student loans, but that you will consider donating when you finish paying off those loans – which might occur in a decade or three….

    Yet another BigFedGubmint “stimulus” giveaway program – no doubt THIS one will be “fully paid for”, too, right?

    “Yo! – Bernanke! – Dude, gotta keep those presses rollin’, got a whole ‘nother batch of “paid-for program” bucks needed, chop-chop, man…”

    It’s a race to the bottom, y’see – will we manage to un-elect this Prince Of Economic Destruction before he manages to reach the very bottom of other peoples’ money, or not?…

    You’re right–the solution to people angry at the Fed printing money to hand to irresponsible banks is sending them somewhere else.

    Yeah, that makes sense.

  6. Rivrdog Says:

    Won’t get by the House. Obama will wail, gnash his teeth, call for all the students to join him in voting out the GOP.

    Wait, that happened last year! The GOP got stronger!

    BTW, look at the history of the student/young lib voting bloc: they manage to show up in force to one out of every three elections.

    If the GOP was smart, they’d save some cash for huge campus parties, all the best food and booze, all over the country on the weekend before the election. Half the collitches will have a home football game, so the young alumni will be there too. Put on a massive bender for the yutes. Probably less than a third of them show up at the polls on Tuesday.

    But wait, just where DID I get that idea for a “dirty trick”? Oh, yeah, (D) ward captains have been pulling that shit in the big cities for as long as I can remember, and that’s 60+ years now. In DeeCee they even had a special size of “short dog” whisky bottle put out by a distiller, and the ward captains bought those five-ouncers by the truck-load and passed them out on Election Day, which was SUPPOSED to be a “dry” day back then.

    The more things are supposed to change, the more they don’t!

    And the youth still won’t get off their asses on election day. That takes effort.

  8. HL Says:

    I think those people angry at the printed money going to the irresponsible banks just want the printed money going to themselves nstead.

    Maybe they will use it pay back their student loans to the irresponsible banks. That won’t do a lot to help the economy, but it is a moot point because they are more likely to use it to buy more Lattes, which will at least help Starbuck’s shareholders…which likely include the irresponsible banks.

    Maybe we can all just agree that we shouldn’t print up anymore money for a while.

  9. Sebastiano Who Loves Darwin Says:

    It would be great if you could dismiss people who are angry that simply.

    It would be great if Jessica Biel was on her way over to blow me, too.

    The latter is closer to reality than that stupid rant.

  10. HL Says:

    I can dismiss people who are angry that simply. I just did.

    Good luck with the BJ.

  11. Sebastiano Who Loves Darwin Says:

    I guess you missed the unstated import of my comment–the implied parts of the sentence would, if spelled out literally for those with less than 10th grade education, read as follows: “…if you could dismiss people who are angry about Wall St corruption, political corruption, Federal Reserve policy, etc and still demonstrate you have any fucking clue about reality and the least little bit of actual understanding of the issue”.

    Seems pretty obvious folks like you need the training wheels. Forgive me for assuming too much about your ability to catch the implied parts.

    Lemme know if you need any help with your subtraction and long division homework too.

  12. HL Says:

    Ahh, I see you have unrolled your scroll or “diploma”, festooned your mortorboard with your tassle moved forward, and began addressing us in the manner of that great lecturer, Leaping Lenny Poffo, or more accurately, “The Genius”.

    Listen Lenny, my “nuanced” point was that you wrongly seem to think that your mouth-breathing brethren out there “Occupying”, are disgruntled Ron Paul wookie suiters who are simply bringing high-minded notions to the public discourse. They are not.

    If they are so angry with Goldmann receiving those freshly printed dollars, why don’t they go where the action is? Maybe they should Occupy the parking lot in front of the Fed instead.

    They should be protesting those who are printing up the money, because when the money is printed up at such a rate, we all lose, regardless of who gets it first. I know Dr Paul taught you that. Do they know that? Are they fine with printing up money so long as it goes to them? If they are, then they–and by extension you for supporting them–are fools.

  13. Sebastiano Who Loves Darwin Says:

    You’re actually dumb enough to think that represents a compelling rebuttal.

    Seeing as the Fed is govt, and the govt in question is more or less owned by moneyed corporate interests, they’re protesting right where they need to be.

    You’re last point is a ridiculous unsupported ad hominem not worth responding to.

  14. comatus Says:

    You suspended a preposition there, ace. Try to be a better example for the unlettered.

    Point One, the Fed is not government. That’s maybe part of the problem here, but look it up: that’s how you sold it to “us.”

    Point B, EduDoll’rz don’t go to banks. Great Leader eliminated that middleman. Seeing as BigEdu is government — way more than the Fed is — you should meditate on the fact that the Revolution is over because your side won. Working out for you? Wallow in it.

  15. HL Says:

    Nice try Sebastian.

    You should respond to ad hominems given the number you have thrown around on this board, insulting intelligence and education. Since those are the rules you play by, I thought you would be game.

    Here is one for you. You have been fluffing that ill-founded movement to the point that it ought to be called “Occupy Sebastian’s Throat”.

    You sound like you went to the Obama school of debate. When someone dares to disagree with you, you just call them dumb for not understanding your “nuanced” points. You start the food fight, then pretend to be above participating in it. It’s cheap and shameful. You are a troll.

    Your arguments are nothing more than cynical tripe. Case in point, “Seeing as the Fed is govt, and the govt in question is more or less owned by moneyed corporate interests, they’re protesting right where they need to be”…yet no change can be made there. Its like trying to convince pimps to put an end to prostitution.

    Your brethren can camp on the front step of GloboChem all they want, but what will that accomplish? If they aren’t shareholders, they can’t vote. They CAN let it be known they vote if they protest political bodies. As it is now, they have the wrong target.
    Of course the Fed is not a political body, so maybe they should load up their VW Bus and go to Albany or DC.

    At least Occupy Nashville is protesting Governemnt.

    Please try to get a response in before you go to work at your service desk. I don’t want to have to wait up late to see your response.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
