So, CSB time.

I'm the new director of digital marketing for a good sized company. We spend a *lot* of money with remnant ad buys. Due to all the last minute cancelled ad slots on Limbaughs different properties, our advertisements have been automatically rotated in because the space is so dirt cheap.

As soon as that happened our Facebook and Twitter accounts starting blowing up with complaints and I've had to deal with it. We've received enormous amounts of messages asking us to stop advertising on anything linked to him. I immediately told our agency to stop putting our ads in those slots.

It's extremely inexpensive currently to advertise there, but it's absolutely not worth the fallout and headache.

That's pretty much what you're doing when you're patronizing companies which support Mr. Limbaugh. But perhaps you're only worried about heterosexual promiscuity.

I am not a particular fan of subsidizing birth control, but you'll subsidize the BC so you don't have to subsidize the abortion ($$$) or the kid ($$$$$$$$). College students really can't afford any of it with the other ridiculous crap you end up having to pay for. Yes, yes, responsibility for preventing pregnancy should be on the student, but that's a whole different can of worms.

Also, uncle sam is guaranteeing the student loans, so if the female student decides to just call it all a wash, declare bankruptcy and live off the dole with the kid for the rest of her life, that's up to $80k out of your pocket just for the student loans that are now valueless to society.

You aren't. You're subsidizing medicine through insurance, that's how it works.

If you don't want to be criticized about your political views you should refrain from tweeting them.

Make up your minds libs. Is she a nobody who should be ignored? Or is she someone whose opinion should be listened to?

I wonder if Huckabee's program will be the nail in the coffin for Limbaugh? granted...it's too early to tell yet, since he DID just launch his show this month. but if Huckabee can avoid turning into Rush Limbaugh, then he might could steal advertising dollars away from Rush and finally topple his rotting empire into the garbage heap of AM radio history.

SHUT THE fark UP UP YOU PIECE OF shiat!! STUDENTS CANNOT AFFORD THESE RATE HIKES!!!!


If you were told the rate is 3% forever and now the rate jumps there should be a lawsuit to stop the increase. If the loans were adjustable and you went to a $40,000/ school you are a moron. Our local community college is roughly $3,000/ year. If you cannot afford it then don't buy it.

Women use birth control for many things, preventing pregnancy simply doesn't apply to everyone that takes it.

Also, uncle sam is guaranteeing the student loans, so if the female student decides to just call it all a wash, declare bankruptcy and live off the dole with the kid for the rest of her life,

Literally impossible.

that's up to $80k out of your pocket just for the student loans that are now valueless to society.

How much is an associates worth compared to the $40k degree? I'd bet it's a heck of a lot more than $40k over your life (University is a great place to make connections with people who can help you advance in the world, your local community college? Not so much.)

"Limbaugh laid into the law student, saying that "contraception isn't enough" and that "some people want their education paid for by other people too."

To the stupid, retards, ignorant, inbreds AKA The Republican party, protesting against rate hike is NOT asking for other people to pay for education....I am so sorry you are either A.) So f**king stupid you can not figure this out, or B.) Such disingenuous lying scum of our society that you chose to knowingly spread this muck.

Not going to even waste the time pointing out the flaw in fat child molesters argument. I really do not understand how anyone in today's society would willingly and openly admit to being a Republican. Not that someone need then become a Democrat. Hell join the Communist party for all I care, better yet form a NEW party. But todays Republicans really are the losers of our society. If you have no morals, or ethics. If your entire ideology can only be argued and supported by lying, then you have become the greatest danger to this nation.

Either people figure this shiat out soon, or this country is farking doomed. How sad and ironic that George Bush II did more to damage the U.S. that Osama could ever have hoped. Sadder still that the minions of FAUX news will never be able to figure this out no matter how often it is explained to them. But yes, lets keep letting the stupid and retards have a say in our society. WTF

Wrong. They can be discharged under circumstances, one of which is bankruptcy. You're referring to a fairly short-term change that was implemented and reversed during the Bush administration.

nope... nothing to see here...



So, what you are saying is that at best, all ALEC can do is get a congressman to introduce a bill... which then still has to go through the whole vetting, reading, committee, voting, resolution process just like any other bill?

The horror! THE HORROR!

After the nation was told that we had to pass the health care bill to find out what's in it, Dems can STFU about introducing/passing legislation.

NO! You farking don't! (does that make you mad, bro?)

This entire fake-ass issue has NEVER been about birth control, unless you're a DittoDerp. You probably helped pay for Limbaugh's boner-pills.

Except for that there are only a few instances where student loans can be discharged in bankruptcy. So basically your situation where a female student decides to discharge 80k in student loans almost never happens.

That used to be true back in, oh, the 1920s. Now, outside of Harvard and Yale (And even that is fading) it really doesn't mean jack shiat. Membership and activity in relevant professional organizations, seminars, and so on is where the real networking is done these days. No one gives a shiat where your piece of paper is from, it's just the price of admission.

hmm. And yet, according to your link:

Effective October 8, 1998, your obligation to repay Title IV, HEA student loan and grant liabilities can no longer be canceled (discharged) due to bankruptcy,; unless you can successfully prove that repayment of the debt would cause "undue hardship" as defined by case law in your jurisdiction.

I even underlined it. effective from 1998, you CANNOT discharge your liability from student loan repayment via bankruptcy. unless of course you can prove 'undue hardship' and good luck doing THAT!
 
2012-04-24 06:17:46 PM
"some people want their education paid for by other people too."

Uhhhh... Mr. Limbaugh, are you aware of the fact that student loans are LOANS, thus need to be paid back? Also, you can't even declare bankruptcy to get out of paying them.
 
2012-04-24 06:17:57 PM
