One of the demands was forgiveness of all loans. Granted tuition is ridiculous at a lot of places but you also have to be smart about eating out and other expenses. A lot of students don't seem to think about the ramifications.

That's what I thought.

So I paid off my student loans on my own and I'm going to support a bunch of fucking jobless freeloaders who want me (and you) to pay for their student loans?

Fucking assholes.

So basically they want free tuition. Why Wall Street? They should be in DC.

Plus it's not even Wall Street in a lot of cases. Mostly parks in cities that barely have financial districts. I bet this whole movement has really screwed up municipal parks...killed a lot of grass with their tents. That's the system they've destroyed, not the financial system!  :f_doh:

I'm surprised I didn't see any environmentalist signs.  ::)

More people in the Occupy movement have jobs than the Tea Party.

Also the reason you guys were able to pay off your loans is that college cost a lot less and banks weren't allowed to charge as much as interest as they do today. So basically you are comparing apples and oranges

And yet many people are still able to pay off their loans...

Speaking of which, I wonder how much Socrates charged his students, adjusted for inflation?  ;D
