You've got to be kidding me! Nelnet offering Financial Literacy?

Even though they are one of the reasons why we're in this student lending mess, Nelnet is now offering financial literacy. Whoopee!

Why in the hell do they have the privilege of dishing out advice about financial aid, when they are a part of what caused the student lending crisis in the first place? They don't give a damned about students or parents or family. They don't give a damned at all, and yet they are partnering with Financial Aid Offices?

Here's a laughable quote from the link above:

"Join Nelnet in creating a culture of financial literacy.  Make Money Mondays your students’ opportunity to get smart about money."

I'm not sure if I want to laugh, cry, or puke. I think we should organize something on Mondays, beginning on February 14th. Call into these webinars and blast Nelnet.

Or we could embrace this b--s--t. This post has to be short, otherwise I'm really going to start cursing.
