Protest organizer Katie Zaman, a Wisconsin Ph.D. student in sociology with $111,000 in debt waiting for her when she graduates in three years, suggested the federal government forgive all student loan debt, especially after bailing out big banks that had lost huge sums because of risky investments.

"It's not going to be worth it. I might as well have not come to graduate school. I might as well be working at Starbucks right now," said the 35-year-old single mother, who has two graduate degrees.

35 years old, 3 years from graduating with a sociology degree, and $111k in debt. There is a slow learner.

Pathetic isn’t it?

These people are so inept that they swallow the media line about how “education” is the route to economic success.

Yes if you go to Wharton and then Goldman Sachs you do make a lot of money.

But Katie, you’re not gonna be a 1 percenter, LOL.

The guy replacing her exhaust at the local muffler shop is undoubtedly in better financial shape than her.

Sucks to be you, honey.

If she’d really been smart she would have taken the GSL checks and invested them in Krugerrands.
Now she’s got to wait until a position opens up in the Wymens’ Studies program. Here’s your TSS baby.

Apparently investing 111,111 in her education was a very risky investment - she’s still stupid.

I wish I knew how to set up an Internet betting pool!

I could rake in a few hundred dollars on the odds spread that she is a registered Democrat!

You gotta be kidding me. She's older than me, and I have a J.D. degree which I got after two stints in undergrad. She also has more debt than me, and law school isn't cheap.

But at least I'm working.
