Did you lose power during the Great Storm of 2021?   The Natural You: Wild Kingdom

Started Feb-18 by Showtalk; 4955 views.

I need to keep reminding myself.  I want it all to be right now!

The companies won't be allowed to get by with the high prices.  I haven't heard of any with high bills though.  I go to a neightborhood website n there are a lot of people on there from different areas.  There have been plenty of discussions about the lack of power etc but no one has mentioned a high bill.

You should be feeling much better now than when you went home.  Another friend got it so bad she lost the ability to walk while in the hospital for two months.  She’s able to walk and cook inside her home now, after about 6 weeks of PT.

So it’s balanced.  We don’t appreciate our utility companies until something happens.  Then we hope they come through for us.

I bet the companies don’t spect to collect.

I bet they don't. There's already bankruptcy lawyers advertising on how to shed those ruinous electric bills and throw in all the covid related losses at the same time.

2021 is going to likely see a mega-tsunami of bankruptcies once the relief packages run out.

And probably an apocalyptic level of student loan defaults and people bootlegging it under the table and under the radar because of the draconian consequences of those kind of defaults.

They may forgive student loans.

They may forgive student loans.

They may ultimately have to.

The momentum is certainly there, and it might even make economic sense where it has prevented people from ever really getting their life started.

When they aren't buying houses or having kids or saving for retirement due to the student loan millstone, without some kind of relief, there is an economic tsunami coming when those young people become old people who have never been able to accumulate wealth and are dependent totally upon assistance to survive their final years, and there are not enough new wage slaves to pay enough taxes to support the social welfare system.

All that will do is empower colleges to raise tuition.

Well, as it's a government mandate, the schools will force the government to pick up the tab... which the government will then pass on to we the people in the form of increased taxes.

And even if the government fully reimburses them 100%... the sad thing is that colleges will continue to raise tuition.

Have colleges ever reduced tuition in the past? We always hear of them raising tuition, but have they ever reduced tuition?

FWIW
