Student Loans: Debt for Life

If student loans are good debt, how do you account for the reaction of Christina Mills, 30, of Minneapolis, when she found out her payment on college and law school loans would be $1,400 a month? “I just went into the car and started sobbing,” says Mills, who works for a nonprofit. “It was more than my paycheck at the time.”

Medical student Thomas Smith, 25, of Hamilton, N.J., is $310,000 in debt and is struggling to make ends meet even before beginning to repay his loans. “I don’t even know what I eat,” he says. “I just go to the supermarket and buy the cheapest thing I can and buy as much of it as I can.”

Then there’s Michael DiPietro, 25, of Brooklyn, who accumulated about $100,000 in debt while getting a bachelor’s degree in fashion, sculpture, and performance, and spent the next two years waiting tables. He has since landed a fundraising job in the arts but still has no idea how he will pay back all that money. “I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s an obsolete idea that a college education is like your golden ticket,” DiPietro says. “It’s an idea that an older generation holds on to.”

Secretly taped, Mitt Romney identifies Obama's voters as entitled and dependent

Mother Jones got hold of video captured during one of Mitt Romney's private fundraisers, so it's nice to know what things are going on behind the closed doors of the elite.

OMG! Bill O'Reilly finally asks the right question. Why do they hate us?

Oh. My. God. After 8 years of Ron Paul and 11 years after September 11th, Bill O'Reilly FINALLY asks the question "So... Why do they hate us?" And what answer does he get? Verbatum... "I think they hate us cause we're there". And how does Bill O'Reilly respond? "I think there's something to that." WHAT THE !?!?!?!?!?!? This is how politicians radio and television personalities change their views on things and get away with it. don't get me wrong, I'm glad Billy seems to finally be coming around to our thinking, but I want a public apology on his show for how he treated Ron Paul for all those years!!! AARRRGGGG FOX NEWS!!!! You frustrate me to no end!

Unfortunately at the moment we have to go visit Bill's website, but if someone could get the youtube clip, would be better. It's the ironically titled "What the Heck just Happened" segment.... If ANYONE has a direct link to the video on youtube would be great. Unfortunatley this link below is not a direct link. You have to click on the right segment "What the Heck just Happened) It won't be long till they just take it down... My apologies.

White House Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security ..."

White House Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

The Obama administration had some harsh words Friday after a federal judge appointed by Obama said the government doesn't have a right to indefinitely detain anyone even remotely associated with terrorist groups.

Judge Katherine B. Forrest permanently blocked the government from enforcing the National Defense Authorization Act, claiming it was too vague and would have a "chilling effect" on free speech.

The MSM moderated "Presidential Agreements" schedule.

http://www.youdecidepolitics.com/2012-presidential-republica...

Just look at who the fine moderators from the MSM for the "Agreements" are. PBS - Jim Lehrer, ABC - Martha Raddatz, CNN - Candy Crowley, & CBS - Bob Schieffer.

I just wanted to pass this on to you all, so that you know which days to not have something solid in your hands that you may want to throw at your nice televisions if you do happen to decide to watch the "Agreements" (Hard to call something a "Debate" when both people have the same policies isn't it?)

Why not get moderators that are not with ANY media organization? Maybe economics, foreign policy, domestic policy, etc. professors, or even moderators picked by a vote from the people?

Yahoo! News: New Hampshire Jury Nullifies its First Felony Marijuana Case

A major victory is scored for jury nullification with the acquittal of felony marijuana charges – and it’s all thanks to a “straight-laced little old lady” juror and participant of the Free State Project.

Doug Darrell beat the odds and walked home from his trial as a free man on Friday, a major win for the state’s new jury nullification law. Facing felony drug cultivation charges for growing marijuana plants behind his house, the 59-year-old Rastafarian saw all of the charges against him dropped after jurors in his trial successfully convinced their peers to nullify the case on the grounds that Darrell was simply trying to obey the customs of his religion.

Iran Responds to Massive U.S. Armada Gathering in the Persian Gulf

Following a story published in The Telegraph reporting an armada of U.S. and British ships amassing in the Persian Gulf, a top commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard warned Sunday that “nothing will remain” of Israel if his country is attacked.

“Our response to Israel is clear: I think nothing will remain of Israel (should it attack Iran). Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to a massive volume of Iran’s missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe,” said Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafar.

He also said Iran would close down the Strait of Hormuz, strike U.S. bases in the Middle East, and withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

US Constitution, send it to all your friends to read today

In celebration of the creation of the U.S. Constitution I propose we all encourage our friends and family to read, or at least discuss, the U.S. Constitution. This document lays the groundwork for a LIMITED government and I think it's important for us to get others to read and understand it.

My view from outside an embassy in a Muslim country.

I was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at a friend's house last Friday. They stay directly across from the US embassy. Well, around 3PM we noticed the police blocking the major road out front of the embassy which is called Jalan Tun Razak. We anticipated some demonstrations since they plastered it all over the news, so we were very curious to look out the window. But, what we saw was more interesting than we could have imagined.

The police blocked the road off for a media scrum and the most piss poor ragtag "demonstration" I have ever seen. There were approximately 8 people protesting and probably 20 photographers and media people. It was the most contrived thing I have ever seen. The photographers were getting as close as possible to the demonstrators careful not to show the reality and shallowness of the situation. To say it was pathetic is an understatement.
