We repeatedly forget the same lessons, despite getting socked in the gut with them every 7 years.Read More State and federal government intervention in market industries like housing and education (taxpayer backed) disguise risk and true value. As a consumer you are automatically blinded from the true price of things. Just like that dumb 2005 buyer of a $600,000 single family home in Riverside, we now see undergrads with $100K+ of student loan debt that can't be expunged via bankruptcy, btw. wondering "what did I do wrong". You made a poor investment. Maybe we need to reconsider the American maxim that says"Everybody deserves to go to college". In Germany, not everyone goes to university. Some student are tracked to university, but some go to vocational schools or apprenticeships. I'm confident though that eventually markets find a way, as they did and will do again with housing. Soon the plates stop spinning. With more information, consumers respond. Teal demand for higher-ed adjusts and prices will crash. Just look at the number of college undergrads male vs. female in last 10 years. It is staggering. Ask yourself, why so many men are refusing to go to college? It's pretty logical actually. Students took out these loans on their own risk. Lawmakers who vote in favor of bailouts need to be fired. Also, caveat emptor.

Weddings aren't cheap. What can a to-be-married couple do with that $20K? They can use it for a downRead More payment on a house. Kick start their retirement savings. Start saving for their kids' college educations. Buy cars. Repair the house. Boost their Emergency Fund. OR, They can have a four hour party.

I would be more understanding of such a huge outlay of money if people actually stayed married, butRead More alas, people don't anymore. It really is just a four hour party. Look at all the time and resources squandered.

I agree with both of you.

If a woman is hot, any perfume she wears smells good. If she's gross, then any perfume will nauseateRead More you. Besides, the average person couldn't tell a $100/oz bottle of perfume from RAID or Black Flag.

There is something very wrong with those computer engineering salary results data provided in thisRead More advertisement disguised as a blog. George Mason $58K sounds about right but $33K Computer Engineering starting salary JUST BECAUSE he graduated from Virginia State? Ya right.

I don't think it is wrong...check out the colleges "brainwashed". Virg State has only 25%Read More of their kids graduate within 4 years, an additional 15% take 6 years to graduate, (meaning the other 60% either dropped out, or are still there), they are less selective, (the average GPA of freshmen is only a 2.6 ), and then, lets consider experience. When you compare the cities where the colleges are located, Fairfax, while it is about 35% smaller in population, consider the demographics...Virg St- 25% below poverty level, GM, only 6%, Virg state number of businesses in town: 1667...GM, 5919. Average household income...Petersberg: 35k...Fairfax 98k. So it IS important to consider the college in addition to the major.
