Obama needs help

Hey you, you students and others who banded together to overcome the juggernaut political forces and get President Obama elected: Are you there somewhere?

Perhaps you have noticed the political scene has even more of a right-wing Republican stench. It doesn’t sound as though you have a voice anymore. You should be screaming about many things, including Obama’s proposal on student loans.

Obama is on the right track, but does he have to carry so the many on his back that should be behind him? A no-brainer idea last fall: Get student loans and their profit away from Sallie Mae, etc., and put where it should be. Let’s see — profit for Big Business, or more grants, loans, and expanded education services?

What do you think? I — or we — can’t hear you. A patriot should always be prepared to revolt against revolting practices. Get your butt up and make some noise — even if it is the clacking of your keyboard.

Dance with the man who got you to the party. You can’t sit in the corner and complain about having two left feet when your toes are being stepped on. Get it right: Fight the far right for your rights and well-being.
