There is no amount of education that can fix this much stupid.

“I didn’t really understand about things like interest rates,” she said. “Everybody tells you to go to college, get an education, and everything will be O.K. So that’s what I did.” How 1,000s Of Student Loans Worth Billions Are Getting Erased On A Technicality National Collegiate Funding (NCF) is an umbrella name for 15 trusts that collectively hold 800,000 private student loans, totaling some $12 billion in outstanding obligations.  The only problem is that roughly $5 billion worth of those loans, or over 40%, are currently in default (and you thought auto delinquencies were bad). Now, ordinarily when a student defaults on their loan, NCF simply files a lawsuit in local or state court as a means for negotiating a settlement or payment plan with the borrower.  Often times, NCF wins these cases automatically as the borrowers don’t even bother to show up for their court date.  In...

What should be done and why nothing gets done is

explained completely in this article. Though the author only covers the first half of the story the second half is just as plain as if it had been written. And while I disagree with the author’s depiction of Senators Grassley and Feinstein it is that depiction that, unfortunately, describes the unwritten portion that is the real problem – NOTHING gets done because if one stone REALLY overturned the public is going to find not only the hens but those tasked with watching the hen house as well. Grassley and Feinstein (as well as Trey Gowndy or any of the others) dare not conduct a real investigation because they know that the stench of corruption covers every inch of their persons as well. What other possible explanation can there be for NOTHING, even that which is obvious and easily discerned, EVER being done about ANYTHING? Russia Scandal? Give Us A Reason to Care By Wm. P....

This is considered research?

By on Jul 16, 2017

Want to know why college tuition is so high and those graduating do not know anything, are living in their parent’s basement, have an attitude problem and support idiots that promise them free stuff? This article certainly presents a good portion of the answer. This is idiocy masquerading as research and your tuition and tax dollars are paying for it. What’s worse, is rather than being laughed out of academia I am sure these two are lauded as visionaries and pioneers. They both should be looking for a job. Why these professors are warning against promoting the work of straight, white men By Kristine Phillips July 16 Academics and scholars must be mindful about using research done by only straight, white men, according to two scientists who argued that it oppresses diverse voices and bolsters the status of already privileged and established white male scholars. Geographers...

Curiouser and curiouser.

This whole thing, everything since Trump won, starts to read like this – You gather your bunch of “geniuses” together and they start to spin scenarios and explanations and possible lines of attack and defense and distraction and misdirection just in case something goes wrong with their plans. They know if some fluke should occur and they cannot corrupt the new power they are all so guilty that they are all looking at the noose and so every thing they can think of is written on the chalk board no matter how ridiculous. Most of what they come up with is dismissed as silly because it is unbelievable even to them but they record it anyway. Never believing they are going to have to use any of it they put pieces in play anyway just in case and because it is what they do. They are so corrupt and so filthy and so looking at life sentences or worse that they lay groundwork for...

You are way too naive if this doesn’t concern you

  How “Nothing to Hide” Leads to “Nowhere to Hide” – Why Privacy Matters in an Age of Tech Totalitarianism Via The Daily Bell Editor’s note: The following comes from a longtime journalist who specializes in writing for major media outlets and private companies about robots, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Would you allow a government official into your bedroom on your honeymoon? Or let your mother-in-law hear and record every conversation that takes place in your home or car – especially disagreements with your husband or wife? Would you let a stranger sit in on your children’s playdates so that he could better understand how to entice them with candy or a doll? Guess what? If you bring your phone with you everywhere, or engage with a whole-house robo helper such as Alexa or Echo or Siri or Google, you’re opening up every aspect of your life to government officials,...

NY Times becomes an even bigger laughing stock.

Apparently, having abandoned even a pretense of reporting the news the Times has taken to comedy writing. NY Times says blaming Palin for shooting was ‘an honest mistake’ By Kaja Whitehouse July 7, 2017 | 10:04pm Sarah PalinGetty Images Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times should be tossed because the paper made “an honest mistake” when it said she incited a 2011 shooting that severely wounded Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and killed six people, a lawyer for the Gray Lady said on Friday.   “There was an honest mistake in posting the editorial,” lawyer David Schultz told Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff. Last week, Palin sued the Times over a June 14th editorial that stated there was a “direct” link between one of Palin’s PAC ads and the shooting by Jared Lee Loughner. But there’s no evidence he ever saw the ad, which placed Gifford’s district in stylized...
