This blog used to be about debt. Now it's about a few more things. But really, it all comes back to debt. Trust me.

This is what I mean

You can tell your story better than some hack national newspaper site. Watch this video. It's not the best thing in the world, but at least they are trying to make something creative out of their situation.

What situation? The scam that is higher education. While you're in school you have 400 ways not to pay it back -- as long as the interest becomes part of the principal. Even after school -- stretch the loan amount so you pay back twice what you owe.

Is this a joke? It's as serious as a mortgage. And you won't be able to get one of those either if your debt is high.

I make a lot of money. Or at least I thought I did. the whole reason for getting EDUMACATED in the first place.

How much home buying power do I have? Not much. Thanks to scam that is higher education, the promised entry into the "Upper Middle Class," I can only buy twice my income. I guess the kids will be sharing the kitchen. Sorry honey.

I didn't know.

What the hell is this guy so happy about?

If he were a real student loan borrower, he would never have a smile on his face. Especially while on the phone with a student loan lender. Anyway, stay tuned for more videos related to your student loan hell. I'll try to stay away from the advertisers, but some of these have to be shown. What a vapid happy infomercial voice. Like they're selling the Ron Popeil spray on hair. What is happening people? This is our education system! When the last best hope of a generation is a lower interest rate....on an overpriced "private" education, from...let's be honest here....not such a great school.

Well, we got issues.
