“What Christian values have ever made this country great? The values that help the blacks that you seem to care so much about captive for over 300 years? The values that allowed us to round up Japanese-Americans in World War II? The values that say we will force a woman to have a baby, but after the child is born it is on its own? Give me a break. Stay out of other women's uteruses. If you care so much about taking away a woman's right to choose, you go out and actually adopt the kids you care about.”

Interracial Couple Banned From Kentucky Church

“As an individual who is (happily) in an interracial marriage, and the mother of two biracial children, I can say without a doubt that it is people like yourself who are confused. I should not have had children with the man that I love because they may be confused about belonging? Seriously? Who belongs anywhere? Have fun drowning in your own ignorance!”

“How is he "ignoring it in one breath?" What makes you think he was referencing Cain killing Abel, and not the actual notion of brotherhood and helping one's neighbor? Your post makes absolutely no sense!”

Sparhawk on Nov 26, 2011 at 16:55:25

“If that was his intention, don't you think he is articulate enough to actually SAY that? His words echo scripture. I completely agree with his statement though, it's the stopping short of sounding 'Christian' that is offensive. If you don't fine, if you do that's fine too. Just be consistent.”

GOP Candidates Duck Issue Of Student Loan Debt, Underwhelming Michigan Students

Commented Nov 11, 2011 at 10:42:10 in Politics

“I'm sorry, I'm not understanding your logic? Your supposition is that colleges are "increasing tuition" because students can now afford the higher tuition? I also don't understand how Obama's plan makes my problem worse. You see, my husband and I both attended college, and he is the only one working for a family of four. Under the income based repayment plan, we are able to make affordable monthly payments. He is at 7 years of service in public education--in 3 more years, half of his student loan debt will be forgiven. This isn't a new plan under Obama--it is the same way my mother paid off her loans after becoming a nurse. As a side note, how many people do you think are still paying off student loans after 20 years?”

Scott EngageAmerica on Nov 11, 2011 at 11:35:14

“My logic is simple supply and demand. When people's demand increases and the supply remains the same, prices go up. So if more people can afford to go to college, and there are finite spaces available, colleges are able to increase prices knowing there will be enough people still able to pay tuition.

I understand the plan is not completely new. However it does amend a law passed last year and lowers the required payment on student loans from 15% to 10% and grants debt forgiveness after 20 years instead of 25.

I also do not have the figures for the numbers of people still paying off loans after 20 years. However, with the increasing cost of college, the dwindling number of students that get jobs in there field, and the current vast unemployment I assume there are those who are. If you make minimum wage and are only paying 10% of discretionary income toward loan repayment, my guess is there would still be debt after 20 years.

Look, I am all for more Americans enrolling in higher education. And, programs to help make it more affordable are commendable. But, I just think that without details on estimates on how much it will cost, whether this is a viable and worthwhile plan remain to be seen.”

“Statistically, most black men drop out of school due to external (i.e. unrelated to academia) forces. Such as, obtaining employment, pressure from friends, etc. I agree with you about personal responsibility, but I think lack of education contributes to this cycle of poverty. However, I would urge you to do a bit of research before you place all of the blame on black shoulders. While it is certainly easier to say that blacks are simply making poor decisions, I say to you that blacks are systemically disadvantaged. I'd like to see your numbers, also, for the society whom you speak for. People should take responsibility for what they have done, I do agree. But let's not pretend that we are all equal.”

“Hahaha! I like the chip on my shoulder, I worked hard so that I could be the boss, and my mouth works so yes, it is used.

“What makes you think it isn't true? As a black female, I do find it a bit disheartening to read that should my marriage fail I'm basically S.O.L. regarding other mates, however, that does not negate the fact that black women aren't marrying. And black women are more likely to be single parents. I suppose education helped me find my spouse (who is not black) because we met in college. I honestly don't think this is prejudice, I think it is evidence of a systemic breakdown.”
