    I am not really sure what you mean by private student loans
    The vast maj of college student loans are federal loans which are not dischargeable in bankruptcy - at least under the old Bankruptcy Act
    if that changed, it would be a great shock

    Possible? Yes. Likely? No.

    I can't imagine someone wanting to be my latex salesman who'd taken more than 5 businesses into bankruptcy and having been barred from charity boards for defrauding charities and not paying bills to municipalities that host his self aggrandizing rallies. An embarrassment to the Republic.

    Given the kind of person who would record that and put it on social media, I'm going to swing to your side on this one.

    But I guess you are ok with mayors who try to terminate contracts and screw over their community because they are so horribly infected with TDS. Fortunately, NYC has backed off of the early termination...but I doubt it was because of the kids...more likely is that it was because city attorneys remained DeBlasio about the penalties for early termination.

    I will all but guarantee each of those four amusement/venues operated will be mismanaged and next-to-bankrupt within two years of Trump Organization no longer being permitted to operate them.

    Deez. Totally agree. Wearing masks has jumped the shark. I wish more people would come to this realization.

    How old are your kids Deez? My oldest is in high school and talk to her just about everyday about the deception she is receiving in some of her classes. But here's the thing. Teenagers trust their teachers more than their parents. At least mine do. I am hopeful she will come to realizations later in life. But at this point she willfully adopts the viewpoint of the teachers.

    This weekend's NYC clown show where DeBlasio tried to terminate, prior to contract expiry, the city's contract with the Trump Organization to operate two ice rinks and a golf course that Trump paid to get operational at different times across the past 35 years and that the city has a history of mismanaging.

    Amongst the groups using one of the rinks is a Harlem youth hockey league. The four entities managed by the Trump Organization also employed some 250 NYC residents...

    The city relented this morning after the effort of DeBlasio to 'impeach' DJT from NYC backfired in the media...

    Part of the thing is she really likes to argue. She has a very mean independent streak.

    The teacher before him should be fired for passing that kid. I didn’t learn history from my parents.

    To be clear, I'm not anti-mask. I don't resist mask orders. However, it has become a stupid virtue signaling tool, and that nauseates me. I don't like those who try to make themselves look righteous for getting the Covid vaccine. You got a friggin shot. You didn't volunteer at a soup kitchen.

    I only have one kid, and he's about to turn 7. I would say he trusts us on most things, except on food. If I tell him something tastes good, he'll resist all day. His teacher could put a big turd on a plate, bat her eyes at him, and he'd eat it. On important stuff, he at least seems to trust us. He does have a big crush on his teacher, who's over the top sweet to him, but fortunately she's a conservative and doesn't try to pump him full of BS. (Husband is military.)

    That’s an absolute truth Mona. Teachers are to be believed over parents nearly, and yes there is a small nearly, every time. Just part of being a teenager I think. I was like that and I think my kids were also but fortunately to a lesser degree than I was.

    As you might have expected, the laundry list of pork the Dems are trying to cram into their "Coronavirus Relief" Bill is the usual endless stream of liberal wet dreams

    Man, 7 is a great age!!! I have four grandsons that are 5,6, and two are 10. Close to all of them but I will admit my favorite (right now) is the 5 yr old. He’d stay at my house all week if he could. Great fun but he wears my old self out after a few days.

    The 5 year old foster kid is wearing me smooth out. Too. Much. Energy.

    I’m in discussions with Mrs II’s about adopting. I’m 53 and have a 22 year old. She is dating the same guy since she was 15. I’m hoping for grandkids in next 5 years. Hard for me to think about raising another child - I feel guilty.

    To quote the great H. I. McDonough, it ain’t Ozzie and Harriet. My girls are 24, 23 and 18 and it’s been good for them to have to help us out as they agreed. This is the grand son of one of my wife’s former students. She has 3 daughters 20-26 and they have about 12 f’n kids between them. This was the oldest of one of them and “she didn’t want him”. Makes me angry. Grandma is working in Phoenix for the VA living in an RV so she won’t be able to take any kids. Her and her new husband make over $200k. Trying to treat the kid like a camp site. Leave him better than we found him.

    I have to say, hats off to you for adopting a child. So many more kids need to be adopted, but it can be a brutally tough road depending on the child’s past.

    Yep, we're buddies too. In fact, since Covid restrictions have mostly cut off social gatherings, I've been his primary playmate for the last year. I was planning to take him to London to see museums and historic sites when we moved here. We're only a 90 minute train ride away. This stupid lockdown has ruined that so far. Of course, I'm a buddy who kicks his *** when he needs it. Lol

    There will be positives from Covid. The lockdowns are stupid and will hurt a lot of people. But kids will remember how their parents handled it and will have a special bond for life.

    I hope so. He hates it. He likes to get out and do things, but his mom and I try to keep his life interesting and take him out when we can. Furthermore, we give him a lot of time, and we're very affectionate with him. We hope he remembers his childhood well.

    I'm no longer impressed by artists. Let them sink or swim on their own. If some rich person wants to be their benefactor then fine. Otherwise, I couldn't care less.
