Easy solution: limit the number of loans to students in liberal arts. Require at least three students in engineering, business, the sciences, or pre-med for every one in liberal arts applying for a degree. And if there more applicants than available loans, only give them to the students with the highest SAT scores.

Obviously the numbers need a bit of refinement and specific majors that are likely or unlikely to repay their loans have to be researched, but the potential is there. Pity it’s such a good plan the idiots in DC will never consider it.

Here is the test, any course the has the word “studies” in the title, should be gone. They are worthless, their professors make a ton of money & are hard to get rid of because of tenure. Worst of all, what comes out of the other side are useless people who end up working in Human Resources departments that eff up everything they get involved with. This is where so very much of your PC crap comes from, & that is a cancer on America & western civilization.

I call that kind of program a self perpetuating degree. Self perpetuating because the only thing the degree qualifies you to do is teach the subject.

I’m thinking at my age I should go to college. I can get a Liberal Art Degree (so I won’t have to actually think for 4 years), get my student loans, EBT card and Medicare, move to a cheap town to live in and screw off for a few years until I get SS. If I don’t pay back the loans, Obama will pay them off. If he doesn’t, I’ll probably croak long before they ever collect anything anyway. How’s that for progressive thinking at it’s best?

My daughter went to FSU from 2005-2008. Seven grand all in each year. My son starts college next fall at the University of Central Florida at $15K all in per year. Think there might be a college bubble started by our president?

So the people that actually paid back their loans are idiots, right?
So the people the sacrificed and saved up for retirement are idiots right?
So the people that have jobs and support their family are idiots, right?
So the people that bother going to work at all are idiots, right?
Ocommie is just kicking the can down the road and one day soon when the SHTF, they will blame it on Republicans and the Stupids will swallow it.

Now that the election is over, Obama reveals he is unwilling to cut ANYTHING and even wants MORE stimulus spending. Told you so.

Here is suggestion. Let all of those with “studies” in their degree title get a job. OH that is right, they can’t find one. Maybe one of the shovel ready jobs, wrong again they don’t exist either.

It looks like all of those with such high regarded degrees will be moving back in with mom and dad and mooching off them once again.

As for the professors, they all should have to leave academia for at least two years and get a real job in the private sector before obtaining tenure. This experience will allow for them to see what they are teaching is BULL SHIT and worthless. There is theory and then there is reality and the two don’t come any where near each other.

So…. this means I aint got to pay the rest of my loans off? Dang I was a fool for paying… I should have waited for Progressive Messiah, this is what happens when you lack faith folks, you pay your debts and do what you got to do and be honest and all of that stupid shyat. If I had faith on PM I would have totally be a deliquent right now and get my free money paid off.

In essence Obama and the Democrats are going to bribe college students for their future votes.

Yea great Idea so the rest of us that actually work can take on more dependents…….Why not just forgive everyone’s debt and start over again? No car loans, home loans, business loans, student loans, credit card debt? I mean as long as you are in a fantasy world, might as well fantasize big huh?

Except……………What happens to those of us that pay our debt or have no debt, we get screwed anyway.

I am sure that forgiving everyone’s debt would be a liberal wet dream and would not do anything BAD to the economy would it? I mean the liberals could have everyone in their pocket, right up until The Chinese launch some really big rockets in our direction for defaulting on all that debt.

Uhm… I don’t think you know what you are talking about. That COMPLETELY defeats the purpose of getting loans in the first place. When you borrow you have to pay back and you pay it back by working and making the loan payments. If you stop doing that, you should not be forgiven the loan, that is not how it works. Seriously are you being serious right now…?

Reread what he wrote. Forgive the loans of those making loan payments. You need to ask if he’s serious? Even if he thinks he is or he is being sarcastic he comes across poorly.
