    I enjoy being your bogey man. haha

    Remember how Reagan and his cronies created the myth of the welfare queen and how working folks bought into it and then "welfare queens" became their bogey? All the while he ripped up the unions and sold working folks out to the mega-rich and the corporations? lol

    Well, I guess I am a student loan king. Your bogey man! Boo! Scared ya!

    Yes. $170k is apples compared to the gorilla of $1.5 trillion that the tax scam is doing.
