Elizabeth Warren's Student Loan Bill Collects More Support From College Presidents

Elizabeth Warren's Student Loan Bill Collects More Support From College Presidents

Commented Jun 28, 2013 at 07:00:58 in Politics

“因为Elizabeth Warren缘故,所以俺还是决定重新支持Barack Obama.如果没有总统Obama的支持, 我们现在就不会有真正为人民服务的参议员Elizabeth Warren.Elizabeth Warren的议案实际上是在控诉美国社会长期存在的一个极其黑暗与不公平的现象:美国能以千分之几的利率向有钱有势的银行贷款, 那它为什么以同样低的利率向急需国家社会帮助的学生贷款呢?”

joebhed on Jun 28, 2013 at 07:48:01

“Yes, but if we take 'some' of the money going to Treasury (from the Fed) and spend that money as LOW-interest loans to students, then Treasury itself will get LESS money from Fed and NEED to borrow the difference at the prevailing rates, making the effect on taxpayers minimally the same.
So, it's like the GUV borrowing long term at 2.75 percent, and lending that $$$ to students at 0.25 percent, thus creating a taxpayer-funded subsidy to educate the kids.

A far better alternative is Dennis Kucinich's reform Bill that takes away the power of the banks to create money in the first place, and ends public borrowing for education.

If Warren ever got onto this, it would change everything.
In a good way.

“Having been feeling so tried about all kinds of Obama's sweet honeymoon talks, I think it's well past time for a switch to something else---it's always better late than never---even though this 'something else' might quite be nonsense. Nonetheless, it still can taste new, at least for a short period of time, and can also be more interesting, more straightforward, less twisted and spinning, and thus less harmful than so many of Obama's past sweet true lies. You know what, I have been feeling terribly guilty for quite some time for backing him back in that worrisome two naive years of 2008 and 2012. With Romney, other things aside, at least the economy might quite probably be a lot better.”

“Just leave him alone, President Obama! Which is my advice. We have to bet he is a man of good principles and won't do us harm. But if being pushed so hard by the government, I suspect even a man with an angel's heart might be forced to choose to lose it. If so, all bets are off and the only thing you can possibly do to right the course is to send one more drone to the unknowns, but that's far from a sure business, other than picking up a lot of embarrassment and setting up a lot of enemies along the very long world.

Just leave Snowman, that is Snowden and Manning, alone. It's in the nation's interests and yours alike, too.”

“Now the whole thing has been taking sharp turns: Turns out this self-proclaimed whistleblower had premeditatedly and thus illegally spied on the US government, while his subject, that is the US administration, was also, and still is, spying on the public, yet legally, thanks, ironically, to the consistently-doing-nothing congress---which has done many great things when it comes to legalizing and promoting unlawful rightist undertakings, the biggest of which, in my humble opinion, is not instituting this gigantic program of governmental telephone eavesdropping, online wiretapping and data mining, but legalizing the false Bush Iraq war.”

“Shameful. They did exactly the opposite to Muslims' first prayer:

Let the rain come and wash away
the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds
held and nurtured over generations.
Let the rain wash away the memory
of the hurt, the neglect.
Then let the sun come out and
fill the sky with rainbows.
Let the warmth of the sun heal us
wherever we are broken.
Let it burn away the fog so that
we can see each other clearly.
So that we can see beyond labels,
beyond accents, gender or skin color.
Let the warmth and brightness
of the sun melt our selfishness.
So that we can share the joys and
feel the sorrows of our neighbors.
And let the light of the sun
be so strong that we will see all
people as our neighbors.
Let the earth, nourished by rain,
bring forth flowers
to surround us with beauty.
And let the mountains teach our hearts
to reach upward to heaven.”

“There are no innoccent people in war. Even the children are killed. And that is the nature of war. Drones kill fewer of the folk than any other method I know of that active enemies hide with in, so we should use them. Irish bombers did not care who they killed we should take a lesson from the Irish. Obama was clear about how he would conduct the war when he ran against McCain including activly chasing across to borders to kill it enemy. If anything Anericans citizens are the war criminals for slecting a man, who was clear in his intent, to lead the nation in a time of war. People we gave Obama a mandate to use what ever method he needed. Drones are a very effective tool. I would use nuke's and turn Northern Pakistan into glass.”
