Obama"s record

You are doing great work, I try to call in, but it's hard to get thru, thanks for all you do.

I voted for Obama, but I, like many Dem's, am a little unhappy that he hasn't full filled his promises quite like we all had hoped.

Was it not Bush who borrowed $7 trillion before Obama took office?

Is it going to be another year that our choice will be the lesser of evil's come election time?

If you have time to answer these questions where will I look for the answers?

Thanks so much and keep up the good work you do, run for office somewhere, we need your ideas!

The American Student Loan Problem and how it can be fixed

I feel our current President has made our student loan problem much worst and I feel he could correct it with one instrument: His Pen. Here is what he will do.

HI Thom

Sallie Mae not government controlled

I know I'm a day behind, but I always listen the next day to the previous days podcast.

Just thought I'd drop you a line to tell you that SallieMae is no longer part of the federal government.

Could T.B.Y.F. Equal T.G.I.F.?

A lot of us would probably have rejected the "gift" of life had we been given the chance. Now that we have it we need to think deeply before we have children ourselves and, if we already have them, we need to accept the obligation of discussing the issue with them (or their children, our grand children) trying to convince them to think long and hard about it - not from their perspective but from that of the child they may selfishly consider bringing into existence.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
