Of course he did. I read somewhere else that he signed off on $785 million dollars in weapons for the ‘Kraine this week. Until somebody starts shooting these sonsabitches…but whadda I know.
Back in the Before Times, my daughter came home from school unexpectedly. With a long face, she told me she wasn’t ready for university yet, and was dropping out. I was disappointed but not perturbed; serious university programs are tough sledding. I told her it was alright - she could get a job and live at home rent free, or move out on her own if she wanted. Going to school and getting a meaningful degree takes a 1000% commitment… and if she wasn’t ready… I could understand that.
But then the rest of it came. She was dropping out of school to take a Mickey Mouse fine art program at a no-name school in Calgary. I told her she was nuts. I forbade it - and she reminded me she was an adult and could do what she wanted. I was going to rip her head off when the doorbell rang. I answered it…and there were my in-laws. They came flouncing in and invited themselves into the debate. I was haughtily informed by the outlaws that my daughter had to follow her dreams, and the money would follow that. She had to follow her own path, and that was all there was to it. I was forced to eat the big green one on that, but I told my daughter that she was on her own. They would be HER loans, and she would pay them because I would not.
Four years later she was an angry lesbian with a useless degree and a pile of debt. I told the in-laws they were free to help her out with the school loans because they had promised to support her on her decisions. I doubt they did, though.
I dunno if she still struggles with student debt or not. For you Yanks… Even if the financial crunch weren’t so bad… Biden had no business passing that legislation. I hope a legal challenge of some sort scuttles this… but it’s probably not likely. If he gets away with it, who else will get to hand of the bills for their bad decisions to the rest of us?
