I'm Old enough to Remember #2: When you could get a Degree without a Student Loan.

I remember when, even if you couldn't afford to go to college after High School, you could take classes anyway and you would eventually get a degree.

And, once you got your degree, there was a whole spectrum of jobs you could apply for.
Also, once hired, you made a larger salary than when you made before.

And you did this while working a good paying hourly job and, of course, you paid for your classes as you learned.

You sacrificed more this way, but You didn't have an enormous STUDENT LOAN to pay off for the rest of your life.

I just Remember, that's all!

I'm Old enough to Remember-#1 - When we were told SS and Medicare Insurance was a safe thing.


Yes, I am old enough to remember.

This is a TEST!


I remember when I was a young worker for a major electronics manufacturing location and they, our government, told us that paying our SS and Medicare taxes was a GOOD THING!

Yep! If we paid those taxes we would be set for life when we retired.
A comfortable RETIREMENT and an assurance of top-level MEDICAL CARE was ours.

We just had to TRUST our government to take care of us!
TRUST?
TAKE CARE?
What a Joke!

Now we are the aging pariahs of a system that just wants us to hurry up and DIE!

Oh, and this was while our arrogant Congress voted themselves separation from "the peoples system" and into one of the must expensive and wasteful system of medical care designed just for them!
FULL COVERAGE! for Everything! For LIFE!

Yes, I remember!
