  • Tonight is Fauxcahontas Night for the Democrats

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Last week, we talked about the fact that the Democrat Party leaders don’t do anything by chance. The contention by the DNC that the lineup for the two debate panels tonight and tomorrow night were determined by drawing names out of a hat at random is transparently absurd. The thought that this party, which does everything it does and says everything its people say based on polling and focus groups would leave such a crucial part of its campaign to oust Donald Trump to chance is laughable. As we pointed...

    As the only candidate registering double-digit support among the candidates at tonight’s Democrat presidential “debate,” Elizabeth Warren expects to be the queen of the kiddie table. Sharing the stage with her will be Bill de Blasio, Tim Ryan, Julián Castro, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Jay Inslee, and John Delaney. Real Clear Politics polling averages It is her chance to look like the giant among the pygmies, and continue to move up and challenge the fading Bernie Sanders for second place.  She covets the slot as the principal alternative alterative to Joe Biden, whose predilection for...

    Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S. Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.” “Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria...

    Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.” She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a top tier 2020 candidate, on Tuesday joined fellow candidate Julián Castro in a call to decriminalize illegal border crossings. Warren has yet to release a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but confirmed in a statement to HuffPost that she agrees with Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development Secretary. “We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future. We must pass comprehensive immigration reform that is in line with our values, creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants including our DREAMers, and protects...
  • ‘Dark patterns’ are steering many internet users into making bad decisions

    LA Times ^ | June 25th, 2019 | By David Lazarus
    Even if you’ve never heard the phrase “dark patterns,” you’re almost certainly familiar with them. They’re the sneaky ways online companies trick you into agreeing to stuff you’d normally never assent to. Classic example: You encounter a prompt asking if you want to sign up for some program or service, and the box is already checked. If you don’t uncheck it — that is, if you do nothing — you’re enrolled. A bipartisan bill has been introduced in Congress that would prohibit websites and online platforms (hi, Facebook!) from employing such deliberately deceptive tactics, and would empower the Federal Trade...

    Black voters in South Bend, Ind., have vocally opposed Mayor Pete Buttigieg, blaming him for leaving the city to campaign for president amid the tense aftermath of a police shooting that claimed the life of a 54-year-old black man. The tensions broke out afresh at a town hall event on Sunday evening."We don't trust you!" a woman hollered as Buttigieg attempted to address the issue, The Los Angeles Times reported.Last Sunday, Sergeant Ryan O'Neill shot and killed 54-year-old Eric Jack Logan. Logan was allegedly breaking into cars with a knife in hand. O'Neill has been accused of racist behavior by...

    This week, Sen. Bernie Sanders upped the ante on free stuff the legion of Democratic presidential candidates are promising voters. In what he called a “revolutionary proposal,” Sanders says that if elected he would forgive “all student debt” — that’s $1.6 trillion worth — and end “the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation to a lifetime of debt for the ‘crime’ of getting a college education.” It would be hard to devise a plan that would shower more benefits on the wealthy than this one. Just 12% of college debt is owed by those in the bottom quarter of income...

    Breitbart ^ | 24 June 2019 | John Carney
    Senator Bernie Sanders released a bill Monday that would cancel all outstanding student debt. But it does little to stop the student debt problem from arising once again–and may even make it worse. The Sanders bill would cancel all of the roughly $1.5 trillion in student debt for 44 million Americans, including debt owed by wealthy individuals, debt owed to private lenders, and debt owed to the federal government’s loan programs. It would also attempt to make college education at state schools free to students, paid for by a combination of state and federal spending. By Senator Sanders’ estimate, the...

    Billionaire Robert F. Smith, who received an honorary doctorate at Morehouse College’s Sunday morning graduation exercises, had already announced a $1.5 million gift to the school. But during his remarks in front of the nearly 400 graduating seniors, the billionaire technology investor and philanthropist surprised some by announcing that his family was providing a grant to eliminate the student debt of the entire Class of 2019. ... He doesn’t know who the keynote speaker will be at Colin’s graduation ceremony but is hoping for a return performance by Smith. “Maybe he’ll come back next year.”
  • I’m a 29-Year-Old With $235k in Student Debt. I’ll Never Pay It Back.

    Yahoo Finance ^ | June 17,2019 | Simon Galperin
    I have $235,000 of student debt. The first $120,000 came with a bachelor’s degree from my state school. Another $70,000 or so came with my master’s degree. The remainder is accrued interest. I would have to begin devoting half of my income to debt payment if I cared to pay it off by 2042. I can’t do that because I make just under $4,000 per month. And that income is a fairly new development in my life. Why would I choose to pay down my debt if it meant I wouldn’t be able to afford basic living expenses? My parents...
  • Why the Gap Between White Men and Black Women Paying Off Student Loans Is So Huge

    The experience of repaying student loans is unpleasant for millions of graduates, but for some borrowers, paying off student debt is an almost insurmountable challenge. Twelve years after entering college, white men have paid off 44% of their student-loan balance on average, according to an analysis released Thursday by Demos, a left-leaning think tank. For white women, that share drops to 28%. For black borrowers, the picture is even bleaker. Black women see their loan balances actually grow 13% on average, 12 years after leaving school, while black men see their balances grow 11%. The age at which students enter...

    The U.S. student loan system is broken. How broken? The numbers tell the story. Borrowers currently owe more than $1.5 trillion in student loans, an average of $34,000 per person. Over two million of them have defaulted on their loans in just the past six years, and the number grows by 1,400 a day. After years of projecting big profits from student lending, the federal government now acknowledges that taxpayers stand to lose $31.5 billion on the program over the next decade, and the losses are growing rapidly. Meanwhile, four in 10 recent college graduates are in jobs that don’t...
  • What To Do About The Student Debt Crisis

    06/03/2019 4:50:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 113 replies ^ | June 3, 2019 | Rachel Alexander
    Student loan debt is getting out of control. More than 1 million people default on their student loans every year. That is 22 percent of borrowers. And the numbers are rising; 40 percent will default on their student loans by 2023. For borrowers under age 30, their average monthly payment is almost $400. Student loan debt now exceeds $1.5 trillion — surpassing both auto loan and credit card debt. It is an epidemic that will continue to get worse unless something is done.Making tuition “free,” as some Democrats recommend, isn’t the solution, since that just passes the debt along to other Americans...

    The Hill ^ | 06/24/19 | Naomi Jagoda and Max Greenwood
    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Monday unveiled an ambitious proposal to cancel student loan debt, seeking to reinforce his progressive credentials days before the first debates. For Sanders, an Independent senator from Vermont, the student debt plan is an opportunity to reestablish himself as the Democratic primary field’s progressive leader on the issue of college affordability. The plan comes as Sanders finds himself facing an ascendant progressive rival in Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has set herself apart by releasing a steady stream of sweeping policy proposals. “It’s smart on his part. It’s an extension on the 2016 campaign...

    Bernie Sanders, the 2020 hopeful, is set to announce on Monday a policy proposal that would eliminate all $1.6 trillion of American student debt, according to a report. The Democratic presidential candidate’s new proposal calls for the federal government to wipe clean the student debt held by 45 million Americans, including all private and graduate school debt, The Washington Post reported. The proposal package also includes making public universities, community colleges and trade schools tuition-free. Sanders reportedly plans to pay for the lofty proposal with a tax on Wall Street, which his campaign says will generate more than $2 trillion...

    If there’s two things the left really likes, it’s illegal immigrants and free stuff. So, Bernie Sanders got the bright idea to combine the two. Not only does the Bern not want to deport illegals, he now wants them to have their college tuition taken care of by the government. As in you and I are footing the bill. Seriously: I had a very emotional meeting just two or three weeks ago in California with some undocumented young people. Beautiful young people. And I listened to them tell me that they hesitated to apply for college because they would not...

    Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren talk decriminalizing prostitution WASHINGTON – The two progressive presidential candidates backing Queens District Attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán are also backing her on one of her signature issues. Cabán wants to decriminalize sex work, arguing that the current laws go after people who are destabilized by the current economic system. “This is literally how they put food on their tables,” Cabán said in a debate Tuesday. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) – who endorsed Cabán Wednesday – said he was open to the idea as well. “Bernie believes that decriminalization is certainly something that should be considered,” Sanders’...

    Despite the fact that politicians like U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have made it a point to call out the top 0.1%, not everyone agrees with their philosophies. Billionaire Mark Cuban implied that had they been as successful as him, they might not have as much to say about the ultra-wealthy. He remarked that AOC’s criticism of capitalism is “headline porn” and noted the fact she started a business, a now-defunct publisher called Brook Avenue Press. “Bernie Sanders has a book business, you know, Elizabeth Warren...
