Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2019-113: Election 2020: Loan Solution

The Democratic presidential debates seem to be a good place to declare the 2020 campaign season open.  I didn’t pay much attention since I don’t see any of them that has enough common sense and love for America to get a second glance.  One of the recurrent themes is “free stuff”.  It takes slightly different forms from reparations to forgiving student loans but all of it is based on the socialist idea that you take from the productive part of society and give to the non-productive.  I have a suggestion on how to deal with the load of student debt that the millennial snowflakes have accumulated.


I don’t know what the technical legal terms are.  Perhaps breach of contract would work.  Maybe something about false advertising.  Fraud comes to mind.

Instead of cancelling student loan debt maybe we should sue the universities that issued worthless degrees in things like gender studies the same way we would sue any other business.  A university would be exempted if they made it clear to the potential students that there would be no jobs for them when they got out of school.  I don’t think any will get that exemption.

We also want to make sure that they pay out of their endowments and not by increased government grants.  What people fail to understand is that universities are worth billions in tax sheltered money.  We can’t seem to get up the nerve to tax their wealth but we might be able to get juries to dip into it.

It is worth a try.  Sounds like a potential campaign platform to me.  Everyone wins except the deep pocket universities.  The snowflakes get money to buy their latte and the tax payers don’t get skinned.

  1. That's the first reasonable idea on the subject yet, which explains why it will probably never happen.

    1. Are you being cynical or realistic? I guess there isn't much difference today.

      Grace and peace
