    Damn bro havent seen you in forever. Glad to have you back. At least a person with some common sense has returned

    Haha. Good to see you.

    I'm just passing through. I legit believe my continued sobriety and happiness would be in jeopardy if I went full bored again. As much as I love many of the old timers, this place is toxic as hell!

    Save more and put your kid through college if you are worried about her future financial burden.  To expect ME to split the cost with you - fock that.  I have 2 of my own to pay 100% for already.

    Fair enough. I have had a CD for her since she was born, and definitely don’t feel it’s not my responsibility to help her. On the counter side, of all the things our government spends our tax dollars on, I believe education and healthcare should be priority. Just behind military/border protection and critical infrastructure. It’s to the benefit of all IMO.

    I took out loans for college, and it cost me some sacrifice working a couple jobs after I got out of school, but, wow it paid off. And it is a satisfying feeling. 

    I'm debt free!!!!

     


    💯 

    It did feel great. I remember posting about it on Facebook haha. One of my prouder moments in life.

    It definitely shouldn’t be free, and I agree that economics/finances should be prioritized over the arts in primary school. :cheers:

    It's not hard to learn at the age of 17/18 to understand loans and value of particular educations. 

    Instead of putting money towards dumb choices by students and their dumb parents, of which my brother was one of the dumb parents, spend the money to help put the logical education into the schools. Teach kids about finances from 5th grade through senior year of high school. This liberal government loves the problems, but they hate fixing them for real. Just throw money at the end of the process instead of at the beginning of it.

     

     

    Yah I dunno. I don’t do politics, so you won’t get any bites from me on that one.

    I only speak on my own personal experience, and my reflections later in life. I was a 19 year old, on my own financially, with a choice to either join the military or take out a loan if I wanted to “learn computers”. I’ve gone on to have a successful career, paid my loan, etc. etc. But it wasn’t without great sacrifice and some really dicey financial positions along the way. And this was all in the early 90’s, when the cost of education was much lower when adjusted to cost of living. 

    Now having a teenager myself, I’d hate to see her go through the same hardship, and I ultimately believe a highly educated society is beneficial to all Americans. The more accessible education is, the better IMO.

  5. I’m torn on this one.

    When I first heard the news, I was pissed and wanted a refund for the 15 years of .edu loans I paid.

    Then I remembered how young and naive I was when I took out the loan, how my loan was sold to 4 different brokers, and how hard it was to keep current earlier on my career, and I can empathize. 
     

    I feel like a basic BS/BA public education should be reasonably accessible, and is ultimately better for America as a whole. Advanced degrees and specialized fields should carry a higher price tag.

    Was that you though?  Not to be creepy which I'm certain it may feel like and that is not my intent.  I was proud of you if that was you and I thought it was super cool.  If that is you though and you are showing back up here I hope that all is well and I hope that you stick around.  

    Yup. That’s me. I stop in from time to time. Check in on the DNDL league. Just busy with family and all the boring grownup BS.

    Good to see you though. Are you the gent that sent me the books?

    Where have you been?  You were an Eagle Scout, correct?  Married to an Asian woman?  Live in California?

    I’ve been stuck back in the P(a)ST all this time. What has it been like here in the future? I don’t see any flying cars anywhere.

    100% imo…. I have little faith a backup qb with 3 career starts will be able to face constant pressure and move the chains. Sigh

    55.6 points. Boom championship! Thanks for convincing me I wasn’t nuts! :cheers:


  9. I’m going to the same show next month. Seen LOG a few times before. As much as I love Megadeth, LOG will probably put on the better show. Randy still sounds good and goes pretty ham on stage. Dave is 60 and a year removed from throat cancer. He sounded pretty rough when I saw them a decade ago, so I don’t imagine it being any better. It’s more for the nostalgia at this point.
     

    My favorite LOG tunes are Redneck, Walk With me in Hell, 512 and The Faded Line.

    have fun man! :headbanger:
