Gainful Employment

If you have read the proposal from the Department of Education that will make it harder for students to obtain financial aid at for profit colleges and universities, you need to click the below link.  You need to tell the Department of Education that this is bad for those students who find it harder to obtain a college education through normal channels.  Not all of us were blessed to be able to attend college right out of high school.  Some of us had to work our way through school and if you’re thinking that I am one of those people, you’re right.  I was told by my mother that I was on my own when it came to college.  It took me 22 years, $23,000 in student loans, a lot of blood, sweat and tears; but, finally, I graduated with a degree in Business Administration with a minor in Computer Science.  My salary in just the last 14 years has risen 361% (if my math is correct).  I’ve gone from paying next to nothing in federal income taxes to, this year, paying $9,000.  I no longer live in a one bedroom apartment.  I own a two bedroom home.  And, I’ve paid off that $23,000 student loan.

And, it is all because of my college education and the hard work I’ve put in.  Please don’t let others like me fall by the wayside and not be able to obtain their dream of graduating college.  Click on the link below and tell the Department of Education to cease and desist.

There’s a million potential college graduates depending on you.

Dumb Animals

Anyone who thinks that animals – both wild and domesticated – cannot show compasion and love won’t think this after viewing this slideshow I found on the TODAY site.
