    17%. Very sad.

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

    Jeez, and here I thought this was capitalism at work? Is prostitution when it comes to sex the only prostitution? Or could we define prostitution as giving in to any power? Prostitution is legal in Nevada and considered the world's oldest occupation by many people. So I guess my question is, if you consider prostitution a bad thing, how would you prevent it or work to make it less bad? Or are you just moralizing online because that is what you do best? Requires nothing from the critic, that makes all thought easy.

    In this case the girl owes money to the fed... Her choice....
    Now, she has reduced herself to doing something she feels she has no choice but to to...

    If she want's to be a prostitute so be it..

    If they're [Taylor et al] seeking sponsorship/source of debt relief under the direct inference that they'll be expected to return the 'favours' with sexual gratification, penetrable or otherwise, then yes, they're whoring themselves. Though in the UK this is nothing new. In my opinion is a sad consequence of the last government literally insisting that everyone leaving school should go on to study at university, even though it's patently obvious that not everyone is suited to higher, academic learning. That's not snobbery, that's reality. They're pressured into going to university because the government's insisted that they'll enjoy a more prosperous future, and that manual work is to be looked down on. But they aren't suited to it, so incurr massive debts as a consequence of entering into something that they aren't suited to, but had no alternative because Labour insisted that everyone should go to university. I've employed five men over the last four years who've recounted tales of their children going to university after being promised the world by the various prospectuses they've had shoved under their noses after completing their A-Levels (some not even achieving the grades usually stipulated to gain admission, but exeptions were made across the board to encourage everyone to get a degree, even though the evidence underscored that they weren't suited to it), and have dropped-out after such a time has passed that despite all the pressure, they've come to the final decision that they're not suited to either the nature of the work, or environment, or both. But by that time they're loaded with debt, and have to find some way of repaying it. I'm not talking about student fees because they're only made repayable once your income has been assessed and it's decided that you can begin repayment. No, I'm talking about repaying all the peripheral financial assistance offered to young men and women who are packed-off to university. That's what makes people resort to desperate measures to make the monthly repayments. These repayments are often so big that even their parents are left unable to help their over-burdened children.

    i worked my waty through college, and kept my loans low. The high interest rates is the main killer on loans. When I got my first loan of 400 dollars in 1980 it was at a 2% interest rate(avereage bank rate then was 30%), my last loan of 2k in 1997 was at 10%(bank interests at 5%). Why do we not give the kids breaks and stop charging so much interest on the loans?

    Yes, it is quid pro quo capitalism.

    I have no problem with people who fornicate for money because I KNOW they're working for it.

    That is the truth. And, it is a very sad truth. I suspect that we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg in the ramifications of these policies.

    Great post.
