Scariest Graph Ever

“Until recently, I thought that there would never again be an opportunity to be involved with an industry as socially destructive and morally bankrupt as the subprime mortgage industry. I was wrong. The for-profit education industry has proven equal to the task.” -Steve Eisman (renowned hedge fund manager who called the housing market collapse)

I have been preaching for almost two years now how the student loan crisis is shaping up to be one of the most catastrophic financial disasters to lay assault on this country. And it is. Education in America has been hijacked by a cartel of banking thugs and administrative wolves cloaked in sheepskin all in cahoots with the US govt. Though the media has SLOWLY been picking up on this issue, our govt continues to sleep behind the wheel (surprising?). I have done quite a bit of research on this very topic and have quite frankly been blown away by all the disgusting corruption and greed that goes on behind the curtain. Everything from former for profit college lobbyists now working at the Dept of Education to recruiters drumming up warm bodies at homeless shelters to the University of Phoenix’s impressive 4% graduation rate for online students is enough to make my head spin in utter disbelief.
Today in France the youth are protesting in droves after the govt proposed raising the retirement age from 60 to 62. I can only imagine how they would react to our student loan situation! We should be in the streets going ApeSh!t over this. Check out the graph above and see for yourself how this bubble is inflating beyond belief. It makes the recent housing bubble seem like a mere blip! Scary graph indeed!!!

    Ha! And still the sheeple will bleat that education is the way to a better life and there is nothing wrong with the system! The best students will get scholarships, top grades and great jobs afterwards they say. The people that are in debt or have trouble paying off loans are just slackers, they will say.

    Don’t expect the American public to ever protest anything meaningful. The only thing they are capable of is picking one side out of two and then yelling angrily at the other one, and perhaps obsessing over “white disadvantage” in hiring or education (think the teaparty and others that complain about the “race” card).
