    I am always glad to see these kinds of comparisons that show just how out of whack things are when it comes to justice and injustice.  It's always an eye opener for me.  The same goes for $ comparisons. I think we should do those all the time. For instance, comparing what we spend on a war in one month, or buying toxic bank bonds with how much college education or food that could buy, or solar conversions on buildings.

    •  Thanks. You managed to grasp my point (0+ / 0-)

      perfectly, which was really rather straightforward.  As usual though the following discussion jumped the track, although not as badly as it might have.

      Imagine if I had compared the new, improved (translation: higher) student loan rates to what fat, sassy Wall Street banks are charged when they borrow money!
