i don’t understand why shite is going “south.” I’ll start driving around in a water truck just in case a fire breaks out in summer. fcuk we all should. Such a backwards place. It’s 2022, why are they comparable to the slums in Honduras. In case there is a shootout I’m strapped. We are bound to prevent more problems then we create.
Nope no history of mental health issues after serving in the military. Completely stable bunch. I realize the solution is complicated, its a mental health issue, a cultural issue, a gun control issue. But when are these retards, sorry, going to realize more guns isn’t solving “helping” this problem. Texas is littered with guns. Maybe, hear me out, maybe just fcuking maybe that’s the biggest problem. Crazy I know. People walking around with things that can instantly kill people from distance, dangerous. Just maybe.
1) fair point on the retired military community. but... and I've seen this first-hand... having a purpose and structure and sense of normalcy upon return to civilian life is by far the best way of minimizing those issues...

2) yeah, they have way too many guns on their streets. show me how we get them off the streets. until then, I'm more interested in the ratio of good to bad how we leverage that to protect our most vulnerable citizens...

First of all, I am shocked that the US would forgive student loan debt. But, now people are bitching that getting $10,000 off what they owe is a slap in the face. If that is the case, please bitch-slap me over and over. These are the same kinds of people who then sue someone for their own stupidity. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/06/05/cnb...ce-of-10000-in-student-loan-forgiveness-.html
another example of the polorized climate we live in. It's all or nothing from that side of the political aisle, per usual.

if they understood econonics they'd understand that if the government forgives their debt, that just means that people who paid their own way now have to pay taxes to cover the education of other people as well. it's actually about the most unfair policy decision a government could make...

I have many many colleagues in the US from working there over 25 years and I would say that of the people I knew well enough to know about their kids and their education, the majority decided to send their kids to a College (University to Canadians) out of state, which not only costs 4x more, but also room, board, travel, etc. My one buddy has 4 kids that he put through school that set him back over $450k, and the schools they went to were not Ivy League or anything like that - just away from home - and he lives quite close to Western Washington University, so they could have easily lived at home and got to school. I am not saying what I did was what everyone should do, but I was fortunate to live somewhat close to UBC (could get there by bike or bus) and my parents made me the deal - as long as I was in school, I could live at home for free and get fed. I paid my own way by working on weekends and in the summer and came out debt free. A big thank you to my parents indeed, but had I decided to go away to another school, it would have cost me 4-5 times as much. Oh yeah, and I opted to not get a degree in basket weaving, so I was somewhat employable when I graduated. I suppose my point is that a lot of parents give in to their kids wishes to go away for school and major in something like African music therapy.

It's Biden the lefty President who decided the the forgiveness will be $10k. If the previous poster is correct and saying it's the other side demanding all or nothing, then it must be the Republicans who are guilty of wanting it all.
Biden the lefty has shown his willingness to compromise on many issues. Too bad the CSA and the players did not compromise and settle.

Biden the lefty hasn't shown the ability to put a cogent thought together in about three years. He's a senile stooge put in place squarely so the radical wing of the party can run amok. November will be their comeuppance, and I can't wait to watch the payback once the GOP takes back both houses.

The previous poster was likely referring to the social democrat wing of the Dems; that's how wing nutty they are that they're now considered "the other side" even though they vote the same way.

But sure, put the GOP down for all or nothing. As I explained, student debt forgiveness - assuming the public purse is who is taking the hit - is a grossly unfair proposition. Gas is $7 a gallon but we'd like you to pay for someone else to get their gender studies degree please... Fcuk no to that...

Guns don't kill people.
The US needs more guns. Everyone should carry a gun all the time to defend themselves, and real guns not the toy like the 22 which the 13 year old bought. .
