College Loans And The People Who Won’t Pay Them
College Loans And The People Who Won’t Pay Them
In our free society, almost anyone can attend college. College comes with a price tag. Some students receive scholarships and some students receive student loans.
College in America is a wonderful thing. Unlike other societies where a career path is decided in one’s formative years, ours is one where one’s fate is decided by that individual. So, if you want to major in Lesbian Dance Theory in America, you can. You can even take out $100,000 in student loans to achieve your dreams. No one in America is stopping you.
But it seems as if now, some adults are flat-out refusing to pay back the student loans they have borrowed on “good faith” over the years. Why? Well, The New York Post highlights just a few of them and their reasons.
With the school debt that I have, there’s no way I will ever think about buying a house or settling down. It hurts seeing many Americans suffering financially while a great country such as ours has the resources it needs to make every American live a decent life.”-Yazan Alswaeer-38 years old
Alsawaeer is $118,000 in debt. Biden’s plan for student debt relief was the “one reason” Alsawaeer voted for the senile houseplant in-chief.
This was a federal con artist operation. They knew exactly what they were doing and it caused a lot of false hopes.”-Heather Helton, 39 years old
But, you’ll still keep voting Democrat, won’t you, Heather? Heather, a special education teacher is $56,000 dollars in debt.
“I’m not gonna feed this monster anymore. I’m done. This loan thing is done. People have had enough,” We’re done paying into it and done with the burdens of these loans.”-Nicholas Linkey, 31
Nicholas is $25,000 in debt and is unemployed. Shocker that he’s not going to “feed the monster”. The “monster” will continue to feed him, no doubt.
I can put everything at risk doing this. But I’m way overdone.”-Christina Winton, 47
Christina is $29,000 in debt.
There are reasons Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan needs the brakes.
What floors me is the age group of these individuals. We are not talking 25 year-olds who have graduated with their Bachelor’s degrees and are staring down student loans and attempting to find a job in the real world for the first time. These are adults over 30, some who have children, throwing their hands up in protest.
These people signed on the dotted line and took on the debt, I've paid down my debt, they can pay their debt or suffer the consequences, end of story

Some of us, back in the day, went to college and actually paid off our student loans. We worked two, sometimes three jobs, clocked in 80-hour work weeks and had to knead the dough until payday at times. It was a great pleasure to kick Sallie Mae out of my house in 2004. But these grown-ass adults don’t want to “feed the monster” anymore, they say. It’s funny that they were completely content to “feed the monster” and pay the outrageous tuition and fees their institutions of higher learning were charging during their time at college, though. Except-it was not them “feeding this monster”, it was money that was never theirs in the first place. They are not upset at the colleges and universities for this price-gouging. They are completely willing, however, to take NO responsibility for legal documents they have signed to pay off their loans. They are willing to do this in front of their children. So much for “personal responsibility”. But then again, what can you expect when college professors write essays about how “personal responsibility” is the bane of our existence?
This is what colleges churn out. These people are the very product of their college indoctrination. There is no accountability and/or personal responsibility. There is no future-thinking about the impact their flat-out refusal to take any responsibility will have on generations ahead of them to include their own family members. There is this shroud of victimhood, this dependency on institutions of higher government to take care of them. They are overdone, they say.
It’s like they’re talking about a steak. They’re “overdone”. You know what some Americans are “overdone” with? The sheer sense of entitlement that some of our other fellow Americans carry. You are not entitled to an education at a college or a university. It hurts seeing so many suffer when this country has the means to make every American live a decent life? Let’s go out on a limb here with some of these college graduates and venture a guess that none of them own flip phones or hoopties for vehicles.
I propose a moratorium on student debt for every year that those owing one work in a blue collar job. Shovel asphalt all year, your payments can be delayed, interest free. Work a white collar job, then you must pay up. Your degree got you that job.

Interesting concept considering there is a labor shortage because some individuals are being paid more to stay home and think some labor is beneath their standards and “qualifications”. This could be a start.
There is a life lesson in here somewhere for these college alums who flat-out refuse to pay their student debts and voted for the deadbeats in government who promised to alleviate them of any further responsibilities. Unfortunately, the tenured professors making over six-figures a year did not do a very good job in teaching them these lessons. Oh, the humanity!
