Blackrock, Educating our young cuts into the cheap labor pool. The right wing has always opposed any education of the working force for that reason. They liked the slave days.

"6.8% is a*****of a deal for someone who needs a brain transplant!" A Bank would cherish this loan that is immune from bankruptcy. Unlike the mind of the commentator!
