I hope that the newly elected adults will come down hard on this guy and put him in Leavenworth where he needs to be. sd
These pathetic skulls full of mush are the result of years of brain-washing in liberal schools, paid for by their equally clueless parents and U.S. taxpayers.
Isn’t cutting the student loan interest rate helping the rich? There is no means testing for student loans.
What is that a photo of?
That’s a screen cap from Star Trek (TOS) “The Way to Eden”
One of the most hilarious episodes ever.

All the students have to do is use some of that Obama money.
