Because Moody's Gloomy Report Is So Enlightening . . .

Now that Moody's has let us know that it is likely that student debtors will have more difficulty paying back their loans in coming years, we can all rest easy, right?!? Because those of us who are living with our in-laws, parents, or on the verge of becoming homeless, and struggling to pay the incredible un-shrinking student loan debt man, didn't know this fact already. (Here's the illuminating study).

Yeah, so, anyway . . . did you realize that we're experiencing a student lending crisis? News to me! News to you!

Gee, thanks for letting us know, Moody's! You must be in the analytical business of the OBVIOUS, right?!?

How about stufing a wide choked shotgun into the mouth, and blowing the fucking indebted brains out in glory? End of story. Forever?

As time goes on, I keep thinking of that as a really sweet deal.

I mean...I'm FUCKED!

I need to think about closure too.

Am I entitled to at least that much?

At least?

What do the bankers think I am?

Some kind of animal?

I mean, it is like I got this really, fucked, fucked up thing hanging over my head forever, and it rots away at the skull, and eventually the brain.

DEBT. DEBT. DEBT.

GUILT

I have found out that two people recently killed themselves and having student loans was a reason for doing it. JDpainterguy - take care of yourself. Hang in there! PLEASE.

Cryn:

When you go to DC to meet with your "contacts," you have have to make it VERY CLEAR that the policy of student loans for everyone with a pulse is very detrimental. Instead, student loans should only be given to low-income students with great academic promise (high SAT, LSAT, MCAT, GRE, etc).

Anonymous at 11:20 - so, the unnecessary quotations must suggest I'm not meeting real "people."

Last time I met people in D.C., they were real.
