I got an email in August from my #studentLoans servicer with the subject 'Your Student Loans Have Been Forgiven.'
I didn't believe it, so I ignored the email. Not only have I had student loans since 1994, but in 00s my loans were sold multiple times to different servicers and keeping up with that was a pain. What I did notice each time they were sold was the principal getting higher and higher - for nothing.
My total owed should have been around $60k, plus interest. But for the last decade it has been - I shit you not - $200k. I'd given up on trying to figure out which servicers jacked it up to ridiculous levels, and whether the effort was even worth it. I figured I'd die with $200k in loans...
For example “If you dont vote for me you ain’t black”… He probably didnt think that statement had any hate behind it in his mind.. but I’d still consider that racist.
Well, I think it’s a bit unfair to take #JoeBiden’s statements as indicative of the attitude that most members of the #Democrat party has towards black people. That dude used to kick it with the #KKK and support segregation, which most Democrats haven’t done.

Union-Busting Biden Walks Picket Line w/ Striking UAW Workers!

UAW president says Trump visit to non-union Michigan company is a ‘pathetic irony’ | Politics & Elections | Detroit | Detroit Metro Times
A day after President Joe Biden joined striking United Auto Workers on the picket line in Michigan alongside UAW President Shawn Fain, the labor leader says he has no intention of meeting with former President Donald Trump when he speaks Wednesday at a non-union automotive parts manufacturer and supplier in Macomb County.
Fain, speaking Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer, said he saw no reason to meet the GOP former president who is running again in 2024.
“I don’t think the man has any bit of care about what our workers stand for, what the working class stands for,” he told Blitzer. “He serves the billionaire class and that’s what’s wrong with this country.”

Biden visits the United Auto Workers picket line in Michigan | Al Jazeera Newsfeed
Why is it such huge news for a President to join a picket line or support members of a labor union?
Presidents tour and promote CORPORATE interests almost every freakin' day so just get over that they might support WORKERS just one time.

I think they know.
"Wall Street didn't build the country, the middle class built the country! And unions built the middle class! That's a fact. So let's keep going. You deserve what you've earned, and you've earned a hell a lot more than what you're getting paid now!"

Please do something."
That lack of insight into and appreciation of the literal #existential threat to #humans of our ongoing and worsening #ClimateChange disaster is a clear indication that #Biden is too removed from reality.

A Montana Judge Just Ruled the State’s Constitution Bans New Fossil Fuel Plants
In Montana, young residents just won a lawsuit charging that construction of a new gas power plant was barred by the state constitution. But “pro-climate” President Joe Biden is arguing fiercely against letting the US Supreme Court hear a similar case.
The wording in Article IX, Section 1, of Montana’s constitution couldn’t be clearer: “The state and each person shall maintain and improve a clean and healthful environment in Montana for present and future generations.” Accordingly, in April, a district court judge in Yellowstone County voided a permit for a natural gas–fired power plant under construction there. Over its lifetime, it would have released an estimated twenty-three million tons of planet-roasting carbon dioxide, and that, ruled the judge, was incompatible with a “clean and healthful environment” in Montana or, for that matter, anywhere else.

Slightly higher times: Biden administration moves to loosen weed restrictions
The Biden administration’s Department of Health and Human Services is recommending that the Drug Enforcement Administration significantly loosen federal restrictions on marijuana but stopped short of advising that it should be entirely removed from the Controlled Substances Act.
The health agency wants the drug moved from Schedule I to Schedule III under the CSA, potentially the biggest change in federal drug policy in decades.
Cannabis is currently a Schedule I substance on the CSA, which means it is deemed to have a high likelihood of abuse and no medical uses. Heroin and LSD are also Schedule I drugs. Schedule III drugs are categorized as having “moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence.” The category includes ketamine and testosterone.
The HHS recommendation is the result of a nearly yearlong federal review of all available marijuana research. Biden’s executive action — which also included federal pardons for low-level marijuana convictions — was seen by many as a political move taken ahead of the midterm elections to incentivize turnout among younger and more progressive voters.
