After forgiving millions of dollars in medical debt, Occupy Wall Street is tackling a new beast: student loans.
Marking the third anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the group's Strike Debt initiative announced Wednesday it has abolished $3.8 million worth of private student loan debt since January. It said it has been buying the debts for pennies on the dollar from debt collectors, and then simply forgiving that money rather than trying to collect it.
In total, the group spent a little more than $100,000 to purchase the $3.8 million in debt.
Occupy Wall Street has been on a debt-abolishing tear lately -- recently buying nearly $4 million in student loans from debt collectors and then forgiving it.
Now thousands of people across the country are begging them to forgive their loans, too.
Charlene Ingram is one of them.
A single mother of four from St. Louis, Ingram is 41 and has $125,000 in student loan debt.
After struggling for years to find a job that paid more than minimum wage, she enrolled in an undergraduate program at age 37 -- figuring a bachelor's degree would be her only shot at earning enough to support her family. While she was in school, she and her sons delivered phone books in order to put food on the table.
Are there any good guys on Wall Street or are they all bad guys? Individual Investors and Retail Traders often hear about the bad things that happen on Wall Street with corrupt banks, scams, insider trading, and scandals. Is the Financial Services Industry the most corrupt industry in the United States, or is this just how Main Street views Wall Street? Martha Stokes CMT talks frankly and candidly about what is Wall Street, why there seems to be so much corruption, and whether there are any good guys left.

Today on "It's My House" we discuss various "so-called" (race riots) or (race wars).
Events such as the Tulsa Race Riots....aka.....Black Wall Street, Memphis Race Riots, the Red Summer, and even the 1968 Race Riots have ALL been MISLABLED ! These events where NOT "race riots" they were LAND GRABS.
No one was ever criminally prosecuted as a result of these events; so we shall take a look as to why legal proceedings never happened.
After we gather the facts then we shall organize a proactive plan for prevention so events like these will not happen in the future.
"Two Ton" Christie is the Wall Street Man.
Mr. Rubio and Mr. Christie might well soak up many Romney supporters, but neither candidate seems as well positioned to win the nomination as Mr. Bush. They could still do so, of course, especially if Mr. Bush turns out to be a weaker candidate than he now appears. Yet both Mr. Rubio and Mr. Christie have a tough path.New York Times
