You sound like my husband. He did similar things working his way through college 2000 and forward. Graduated in engineering with very little debt with an almost 4.0 gpa. Granted, that was when the economy took a nosedive, so he couldn’t find a company that would hire him without 5 years’ experience, so he works as a corrections officer. Bummer. But we don’t have college debt – just a mortgage.

I really want to go back to school to earn my masters and Ph.D., but to be honest, I have doubts that even with that increased earning potential, I’d ever be able to pay off the debt. So I don’t, and while I am disappointed at not being able to follow some career dreams, I’m NOT disappointed about remaining out of most debt (we have a mortgage).
That is an honest assessment though. I have had family go for the masters later in life and it hasn't paid off yet. 5 years out now.

Ew, how very creepy. People with a need to lie about traumatic events – especially public ones with such a profound psychological and spiritual impact upon so many people – come across to me as sociopathic.
Like the ones who claim to have been beaten or harassed for being a black man or woman, and then it turns out that they are white.
Yeah there are some real sick pups out there...
Nah, just needy. The name of the game in recent years is victimhood. Being a victim is the claim to fame nowadays. It now makes one special to be some kind of victim.. victims of racism, sexism, sexual "assault", etc..
So much so that people go out of their way to fake hate crimes against them, lie about being raped on campus, make up new and improved concepts of racism called "micro aggression" so that pretty much everyone can claim to be a victim of something. We even have people being traumitized on behalf of others they have no connection to, have never met, and only a imagined empathetic attachments. I wouldn't label it so much as a sociopathic tendency as a hyper neurotic mass hysteria, or more appropriate.. these people are sad, pathetic, and stupid.
I always like to see liberals "come clean" after they get caught. I don't really think that's "coming clean" but whatever....
The day I give a damn what someone with “celebrity status” says – is the day I need one of you guys to sneak into my bedroom at night and smother me with a pillow
He may be a frittata. I doubt he is a sociopath.

I’d write in the Holy Ghost before I’d ever vote for Hildebeast. I don’t want to usher in the Apocalypse! ( P.S. High school graduating class of 2000.)

My family and I were eating at the outdoor patio of the Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Seattle (in the shadow of that really cool “scooped-out” building) when the Blue Angles buzzed the tops of the buildings and scared the heck out of everyone in the vicinity. Most delicious lunch I ever tasted.

Dang, I love Brad Thor. I can hardly wait for my birthday to get the newest Scot Harvath book!
Call it what it REALLY is....................the ministry of propaganda..........PERIOD.
He's really good!!!

Rouxster – St. George was often referred to as “Dixie,” as the Mormon pioneers who moved down from Salt Lake City to settle that area grew cotton.

I’m a native Oregonian and my husband (an upstate New Yorker) was listening to that a-hole on the local news. He practically screamed at him: “If you don’t feel like you’re paying your fair share, then DONATE!!! Leave my wallet ALONE!!!”

That guy is freaking insane! Even his fellow council members are laughing at him. Not only does he accuse people who disagree with him of being “poor” (in a way that classifies them as also “dirty” and “ignorant,”), he’s also paranoid that the attendees aren’t even fellow citizens of Poughkeepsie. That fellow needs to be ousted from the city council post haste.
Insane? No this is INSANE! http://www.weaselzippers.us/227339-no-joke-study-claims-white-americans-are-bigger-terror-threat-than-muslims/

Nowhere in the scriptures does it say that animals are not redeemed by the Atonement of Christ. In fact, God is aware of even a sparrow’s death, as is mentioned by the Savior Himself. And for those of us who are Mormons, we know through modern revelation that Christ’s sacrifice for us covers all life – our beloved pets will still be with us after the resurrection. Even cats.

Hell, yes. Let’s talk about something worth remembering and REAL courage – wading onto beaches under heavy machine gun fire and parachuting into enemy territory.

There is a difference btw “Service dog” and “Companion animal.” Service dogs actually do activities the handler cannot physically do for themselves, while most Companion dogs are more to comfort or lower anxieties. Rights that go along with Service dogs are not transferable to Companion dogs. No need for name-calling.

No, we don’t. And that’s where I agree with you. I’m tired of having so-called “service animals” at the grocery store, the mall, or other public places where they do animal things – like take a pee or a huge dump right in the middle of the road. It’s happened as I was shopping three times now within the past year, and this is where I call B.S. on the whole thing. ( Or would it be D.S.?) I have severe anxiety when it comes to social situations like phones, stress, upset customers, etc and due to stress and medication I even had a series of strokes, but I take antidepressants and am looking into going back to therapy for my PTSD. Dogs make me all kinds of nervous. People, let’s pull up our big boy/big girl pants more often and keep animals away from food when at all physically possible, please? That’s being considerate to the many.

Oh, my gosh. So am I. Especially after the little ones’ bedtimes. For the love of EVERYONE, not the least your children, put them to bed at a reasonable time instead of filling a restaurant with their unhappy wailing!

I am a woman and that made me bust out laughing!

I love Adam Sandler movies. Sophomoric, fart jokes, and guy humor, I know – but I can’t resist.
