Most of us know at least one sorry soul who exited college with a massive debt load. But despite our esoteric want for some form of government payoff of their debt, the heart can’t overwhelm the head.
Individually we all wish that the friend or relative could have their debt erased, but as nation, we realize that we can’t just willy-nilly pick winners and losers – like our friend or family member will be made whole, but others are on their own.
So the only fair alternative is for government to just butt-out. It may seem uncaring, but that’s the way it has to be.
Many would say that it’s just unfair to saddle our young people with that huge yoke of debt, but it’s more unfair to force others to pay for it.

A veteran terrorist was reportedly captured attempting to flee Libya for Tunisia. So what. Lots of terrorist are captured. What makes this guy so special? Well, he is one of a growing number of jihadists or terror leaders who have been released by Obama over the years and I’m sure there will be many more.
Mike Rowe, of “Dirty Jobs” and “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” fame was asked by a fan to implore his fans to get out and vote in the upcoming election. Mike had some great and rather unexpected advice for the fan – something you never hear from other TV or movie stars.
You too can purchase an AK-47 – from a store in the Moscow airport. Yes – that is correct. The new Kalashnikov store at the airport is now selling replica rifles (that look very real), hats, umbrellas and even ‘T’-shirts emblazoned with “I Love AK” on it. What a great idea. What could possibly go wrong? read more
