Summer Camp * Credit Expansion * Money Creation

What do you do with all the kids now that the baby boomers are bagging groceries and ringing up globalist products at Home Depot, working two part time minimum wage jobs?

Send the kids off the easy finance, zero down summer camp (college), which nets no jobs but keeps em busy for four years, big money in it.

That racket has put a lot of food on tables, for lots of years.

Another Con.

There are a lot of people saying a debt jubilee is in the works for the system in a reset, accompanied by a social credit score, and universal basic income.

AKA china 2.0

Communism - Feudalism.

They believe china is the model, why all the production jobs were relocated there.

Preordained positions, that'll have you kiss'n some azz like a good little commie.

It could be True, why else would the social engineers make the Archie Bunker's of the world public enemy #1, in the media 24/7 on a loop ??

But then again, most won't admit to themselves, much less publicly, they've been duped by the meatheads, who've completely taken over their minds.

I got two college degrees and they completely changed my life for the better. BUT - I did it with zero debt.

If you graduate with debt, that debt is a weight around your neck for at least a decade in most cases. And a way to get folks used to living with debt. It isn't a healthy way to start life. I'll stick my neck out there far enough to say the government ought to get out of the student loan business all together. If banks want to do it that's one thing. I like the idea of colleges sporting the loan. Terrific incentive to bring in the right students that will be able to pay back the loans, and give them all the help they need getting productive jobs.

I have a little 2 year degree that enabled me to get licensed as an RN. The funny thing is, all the stuff you learn in school over those 2 years you could learn in about 2 weeks working with an experienced nurse on the floor. The things you learn to become a proficient nurse, are all OJT. The thing you learn to become a good nurse, which is the ability to quickly discern sick from not sick is also OJT over years of seeing it all. While I was in school, I still worked close to full time, (full time anytime I was off from school) and each semester wrote a fairly small check to my local little college. Never any school debt, and tons of opportunities the day I was done. The other good thing was "meeting" lots of young ladies, and then finally my wife. Wink

Scott, they could have given you a heads up about all the jackazz people you were going to have to deal with though, right? LOL

Both of my kids were RAs while in school which got them room and board and meal plan paid for. Also earned $500 a month for it as well. I had to cover tuition. They saved us a ton of money because living expenses is what eats the budget. Both have graduated and got good paying jobs and started life Dept free. Now my daughter married a guy that is 100k in school Dept but that is her problem not mine. I did my part.

I did that. But there was no cash involved. Sweet deal!

I decided to get my college education in my late 30's, early 40's. I took what I could afford and stretched it out over a few years. I didn't incur any debt in doing this and paid for everything out of pocket.

People are given choices in life. Make your decisions and stick to them. You sign for a loan, you pay the loan, simple.

Scholarships sure don't hurt. I would bet my son wrote 20 essays and had a couple interviews too. He has probably landed $8k in achievement scholarships. Drop in the bucket for sure. But it helps. We have committed to my son that as long as he keeps up his grades, and works his summers to help with costs, we will do what we can to keep him out of debt. My parents did that for me. He landed all the math and science recognitions at the Honors night last night. And he's aiming for an engineering degree. He's always helped or done his jr and now big car engine rebuilds. He has worked tree service and ag jobs thus far and it looks like manufacturing this summer. And he is dead against the liberal indoctrination. It's a good place to start, even if it isn't for everyone.

I agree. Engineering is one of the few college degrees that is actually worth the money.

I have found even when hiring engineers, that I really have to search for ones with good communication skills and who have a good sense of when things are and should be urgent. My son seems to cover those things well. Will see how school goes.

This.^^^

my son graduated last May with mechanical engineering degree from UNC Charlotte with a 3.95 and had multiple job offers coming out. started with freightliner weeks after graduation.

As for scholarships, it depends i suppose. my daughter graduated high school from NC school of science and math. got $0. my son graduated from our local high school top 10 in his class. got $0. both applied for everything in sight. i guess we were wrong ethnicity, married and work.

ep-we got them through though

same with my kids, both were National Honor Society students in High School. Penn State which they both attended, offered nothing, I make too much $, yet most of the other smaller schools offered "scholarhsips" which are largely a marketing/enrollment scam. Tuition is advertised at an inflated price then they entice you with a "scholarship" to select them.

My youngest got a full ride scholarship including room and board to one of the best all womens schools in the country. Sweet Briar in Virginia. To be on their equestrian team! The education is not near as valuable as the connections she made there. And 20 years later she has done just fine.
