So, I’m a bit of a Liberal, a CONSERVATIVE Liberal, and I saw this post the other day “Support the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012“. Are you KIDDING ME?! What a load of bullshit! (You don’t know how it IRKS me to put the link for this on this post)
I went to school, I racked up student loans and it took me ten years to pay them off. I PAID MY LOANS OFF! I even took the lower payments/higher interest/10-year-payoff option.
As much as I am all for equal rights and education, etc., if YOU rack up student loans because YOU choose to undergo higher educations, then YOU need to pay your loans off. I don’t care how much you rack up – YOU pay them off. If you can’t afford a student loan, you work your ass off to be awarded scholarships or grants to pursue your education, or you work your ass off at a job to PAY your loans off.
These whiny-ass people who think we should all feel sorry for them because they went to an expensive private college and need assistance to pay off their loans…. three words: too fucking bad. I went to a state school. I ran out of money because I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up… and it didn’t help that I refuse to grow up either, but I PAID OFF my $15k in student loans. Don’t come crying (or bitching) to me that YOU can’t pay off the money that YOU AGREED to pay back. Let me play a tune for you on the world’s tiniest violin…
Gotta have more of my opinion on this subject? There is a Part 2!
