You had better conserve more than energy during this cold blast. Bill Gates, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden have said they want Americans to eat less beef and eat synthetic beef. Due to the pipeline closing down gas has gone up and the domino effects are starting. Farmers are saying their beef will go sky high because of feed and hay going way up. Chicken and eggs will go up along with milk. Thanks democrats we will be starving just like the Chinese. Oh and did you hear Biden say minorities aren't smart enough to get on line????? You people are really really stupid.

The student debt problem can be easily solved. Have the person that is responsible for the debt join a program to allow them to select how much of their debt they wish to cancel from $0.00 to $250,000. Then send them a 1099-Gov to add it to their tax return as income, since they did receive the money and thus it was income. Then they can pay the tax on that income. Or then they could just pay off the student loan. Simple. The bank writes off the debt and the government reaps the reward. The American taxpayer is off the hook for these deadbeats.

Folks, the Federal Government owns 98% of the student loans.

Banks got out of the student loan business ten plus years ago as it was a money loser for them.

Federal Student Loan program is a "Federal" program funded with taxpayer funds.

Federal Student Loan program is why tuition skyrocketed as the government once again screwed up the supply and demand of funds like they did with the home mortgages back in the '90's up to 2007 with FNMA and FMAC.

Public Universities scammed the taxpayer and students with double digit % increases in tuition as the universities knew the students would just borrow more money from the Fed who basically had no limits on the loans.

The banks got out of the student loan business as they wisely saw; student's future incomes would not pay for the over-inflated tuition related loans.

Of the many problems with the student loan program, maybe the biggest is it is not risk related. The same terms are available regardless of the likelihood that the borrower will ever pay back the loan. Grievance studies and journalism majors get the same interest rate as engineering majors, although their job prospects and earnings potential are quite dissimilar.

Any program to delete student loan debt must involve the colleges and universities, which conveniently looked the other way while students were burying themselves in debt.

AOC is just trying to get her student debt paid off by you. If these punk kids get their student debt paid off then I want to be refunded for mine That I paid off. It's only fair right?

So let me get this straight... we have a Resident Asterisk with dementia, an ex call girl acting as VP, a transvestite as head of HHS, an child molesting crack head's buddy as head of the DEA and his other buddy is head of the DOJ. They guy who was banging the Chinese spy is now with Homeland Security and we are borrowing all of the money that we don't print from China. Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants are coming in for our jobs, Social Security and every other bennie that they can get. Congress's focus was on impeaching a President that isn't President anymore which they failed miserably at and unemployment is 6.3% but Resident Asterisk claims that he is pro-America. You can't make this shit up! It's like shooting fish in a barrel!

I'd still fuck Kendall photoshopped or not.
One afternoon, an armed thief entered a house and found two people there.

He tied up the woman and ordered the man at gunpoint to hand over the family's jewelry and other valuables.

The frightened man started sobbing, and said, “You can take anything
you want, and even beat me, but please untie the rope and free her.”

“You must really love your wife!”

“Not particularly, but she'll be home soon”.
