Also, preparing our youth for the future without slapping on a mountain of debt increases the odds of finding ways to wean off our dependence on oil, a resource that when runs dry will endanger the very way of life that allows us to go to school in the first place.

And we, as American citizens can control everything in America. Us citizens will fix it. -eye roll- We can't do too much about it, because as you can see, America isn't too free. Hell the founding fathers just took over another region instead of fighting for a change.

@YugureKage

Same situation a lot of my friends are going through. I went the other direction, and did not pursue a college education. While my friends out of college are trying hard to find work and pay off their loans, I am already well established in my career and have a house, cars, and if I want something I buy it. These days, who knows what the better route to take is..

America: you're the richest country in the world. So stop burning your money maintaining your massive political penis, and invest some of it in giving all citizens a quality of life that is not below the standard of many smaller poorer countries.

This post isnt 100% accurate. To receive higher levels of education you have to take loans, but a certain percentage of that loan is made into a grant if you should pass your exam.

However, the payment rates on the loan is very reasonable, and its not usual to have loans over 250 000 NOK (or rougly $42.000).

However since people with strong educations earn so much in this country, starting salaries ranging from 450 000 - 500 000 ($75-85 000) and upwards, people who graduate have no issues being able to pay back their loans in a small period of time.

There is however other "wings" of student societies that does receive benefits, aswell as student appartments to live in.

Being a Norwegian myself who have benefacted from our education program, aswsell as health program and other social programs.

To us and other countries who are doing both what we do, and are doing it even better in some instances. While most love america, we pity the

Two media related to this are required: Jesse Ventura's new book "Democripts and Rebloodlicans" and "Inside Job" the movie documentary of five administrations (going back to Reagan's deregulation of banks) financial monkeying that continues under Obama. We are, indeed, doomed by the two party system OWNED by the fat cats.

I have a better idea, how about we dismantle all the political organizations and let the people decide how they want to live. The IDIOTS are the reason why we suffer in America. Because the IDIOTS can't possibly make choices for themselves I have to suffer and pay with my hard earned MONEY to help the retards. As if I like to have my PAYCHECK which IS MINIMUM WAGE TAXED into a oblivion to help the IDIOTS. I have managed to take my minimum wage which is GIVEN to the IDIOTS and a LITTLE AMERICAN HUSTLE to make money. I don't have one kid or GF. But in AMERICA our CORRUPT government rewards irresponsibility of the IDIOTS by given THE IDIOTS my hard earned MONEY. The IDIOTS RICH and POOR make me POORER.

I'm facing this right now. Just graduated from college with about 40 thousand dollars of debt and a bad economy to welcome me. I feel like I'm being punished for wanting higher education.

Good logic viking, I'd advise basing which country you live in purely on that statistic, take your pick, suicides are per 100,000 deaths.

Syria 0.1
Egypt 0.1
Honduras 0.0
Haiti 0.0
Azerbaijan 0.6

All seem like fine choices.

MeGrendel, Food stamps vs feeding the animals? So we should all be like you? We should all not give a poo if people die because they can't afford basic things like food and healthcare? Because that is what your post suggests.

The Park service knows that some animals will starve as a result of their policy. That kind of policy is unacceptable when it is people who are starving. What doesn't seem to sink in with conservatives is that we form towns, and cities, and states, and countries because we are all better off together than we are alone. That means that the well off do better in the long run when they help the less fortunate.

I do not accept that it is OK for society to let the weak wither while the strong exploit the infrastructure that we all paid for.

History has shown that charity isn't enough, "trickle down" is a lie, and "letting the markets sort it out" is the enemy of stable economies.

Finally you're all getting the message. At least you would be if you as a nation decide to change your ways.

Reading all your posts makes me sad, but it's true.

We have become a Country of entitled, lazy, self-centered, instant gratification minded, people who lack any real responsibility.

:(

I agree with the person saying they feel like they are drowning in a sea of ignorance and corporate greed.

on top of that I doubt they'd let us in.

@PinkRhoid: If you head to Finland, those are mighty fine folks! But I'd suggest you:

A- never mention you're on IAB
B- Just say: "No I've never been to Winnipeg an don't know ANYONE named '5Cats'"

THAT will improve your chances greatly...
OH and mention Teemu Selanne a lot

I clicked this thinking "oh geez another anti-American crap submission.." Then I read it, and thought, "well... Yea, can't argue with that.."

Trust me, most American citizens see it, we know what is happening, and we see our country in decline. There is just NOTHING we can do about it. Yea sure, let us vote some politician into position so he can break every promise that he only made to get into office.

Washington stopped listening a long time ago, we're at the mercy of our politicians... I see the need for a "revolution" of sorts.

I say that we need to get our economy in check, well before we start worrying about other things like gay marriage, healthcare, and education.
