Student Lenders’ Slippery Jobs Numbers | FactCheck.org

Under the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act — which passed the House by a vote of 253 to 171 in September before being rolled into the reconciliation bill — the government would expand its role in making low-interest student loans, cutting off the subsidies it gives private lenders such as Sallie Mae (SLM Corp.) to originate the loans. By cutting out the middle man and making all the loans directly, taxpayers would save $61 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office. More than half the savings would be used to shore up the Pell Grant program for needy students, where grants now cover a steadily dwindling share of the cost of attending a public university.

Would overhauling the student loan program really “jeopardize more than 30,000 private sector jobs,” as claimed by those who oppose it? We find that

Congress forces buy of C-17’s – Pentagon says Not Needed

This was a video report on The Fleecing of America (Brian Williams) Clipping the Wings of C-17’s Cargo Planes Video Pentagon says ENOUGH, NO more, but Congress is forcing the Pentagon to BUY more C-17’s that the Pentagon did not request . Supposedly this is not the first time Congress has forced the Pentagon on this issue. (report says it has happened before, starting in 2006) John McCain has also asked the Congress to STOP. When asked WHY Congress is doing this, John McCain says that the reason is that “they have subcontractors in every State in the Union…most Congressional Districts.” Kit Bond (R) Missouri gives his reason why Congress SHOULD continue forcing the Pentagon to BUY more C-17’s THAT THEY DO NOT NEED. Seeing as this has been an ongoing problem, it would seem that Americans should find out who the others are in Congress that are forcing this issue (past and present/whether Republican or Democrat). I certainly agree that “There does appear to be some Political Engineering” going on here. I believe Americans should be interested in the real reason certain Congress members are forcing this issue, and just how they are personally benefiting. We the people should intend to find out before voting in November 2010. 0.000000 0.000000 February 2, 2010

Idiots, Jackasses; and MORE Idiots and Jackasses…

Our government has a history of being run by Idiots and Jackasses. What makes it even worse, is that many of them were dishonest, greedy, self-fullfilling TOLLHEADS! A CrackerJack box full of CrackheadJacks!

What is poor Obama supposed to do with the inheritance of that historical mess anyway? To make matters even worse for Obama is the fact that many of those Idiots, Jackasses, and TOLLHEADS, (Democrat or Republican), are still in their elected offices; including those others still remaining that collect a paycheck from their employer -THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS. flag1Photo Source Unknown

Mars

The Red Planet is about to be spectacular!
This month and next, Earth is catching up with
Mars in an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter’s gravity tugs on
Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest 75-power magnification, Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.

Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m.

By the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m.

That’s pretty convenient to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month.

Make sure you share the experience with your children and grand children. NO ONE ALIVE TODAY WILL EVER SEE THIS AGAIN!
