"Business Colleges" under the old GI Bills made 10s of million of dollars running people off and scamming them for their tuition.

Re: Where are the Masks?

Those dollar N95 masks are for for 5 years ... then they become N75s ... then N40s :)

There are some really fancy respirators out there --- Scot air-pacs are only good for 3 years (I think).

Re: Fed to inject $1.5 TRILLION into the economy

So how are bailouts for airlines and other corporations markedly different from bailouts for student loans? Aren't you bailing out companies/people that made poor decisions and didn't plan for the future and thus rewarding those poor decisions and lack of planning? Edjumakshun is teetering on the m...

I'd go back further. The disaster starts in 2016 with the election, and ramps up with the tax cuts and de-regulations in 2017.

Conservatives have never known how to handle money. Voodoo economics.
I knew it ... it was Clinton's fault :lol:
