Ah, our first hate comment.

"I'm one of those commie liberals. I usually enjoy your podcasts nontheless. This one sucked. If you guys don't know the difference between assisting an individual and bailing out a corporate mess of their own doing, there is no hope for you.

And your play-acting stinks. Keep your day jobs, guys. "

Funny, I don't recall anyone ever forcing these people to go to college.  If you don't understand the concept of accepting risks, you have a LOT of growing up to do before you're ready for college anyway IMO.

And I say this as someone who tried a college course, it didn't work out so I paid back the loan and learned my lesson and that was that.  I didn't whine for handouts so I really look down on people who do.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

I'm still paying off mine. I can feel their frustration; most of what they tell you about student loans is a lie.

The Occupy movement is weird. You have some good groups that actually have a quasi-Libertarian flair to them or at least let Libertarian voices heard, and then you have others that are just flat out for socialism/communism.

I take it you haven't seen the comments of shchpendrop in the highlights video: http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=uRi3T-QfYDY

I saw some of them but oy, some people just don't realize when they're yelling "snap!" in a poker game.

Regarding the comments on the Occupy Movement (especially Hawkeye's):  http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-ways-we-ruined-occupy-wall-street-generation/

I think this sums up things quite nicely;  well, the first 2-3 items at least.
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"
-Captain America, Amazing Spider-Man 537

The only reason the government regulation even needs to exist in the first place is because they took away the market regulation and created deposit insurance, thus creating THE moral hazard.
