C Students

I think C students can be divided into roughly three types.

The first type sees the universe through a different prism than most of us, and often has wonderful insights that do not translate well to the stylized task of exam writing. I am grateful for these C students.

The second type must deliver pizza and clean bathrooms to pay for tuition, and so has compromised time and energy with which to do school work. I am grateful for these C students as well.

The third type is lazy, arrogant and uncaring. I was thinking about this third type while sitting on the lawn at Wolftrap for Prairie Home Companion the other day. Garrison Kieler was reading hellos to service members in Iraq and Afghanistan from their family members in the audience, and I found myself misting up a bit as I listened. The habits of the third type of C student has placed more than 150,000 young men and women in far more danger than they need to be, and those same habits are keeping them in danger longer than necessary.

Just another 17 months to go! A lot can happen in that time, unfortunately, while attentions are focused on inflow of cash.

Richard,

You bring up an awesome point! I actually wrote an article on my blog echoing the same points. Feel free to check it out! The post it titled "The World Is Ruled By "C Students""

Equity Share Investor means you will share what equity is created in the property with an investor who will give you the money for a down payment. For example, If David lindahl scam is an investor gives you 20% of the purchase price to put down on a property. In return for this down payment, the investor will get 20% of the monthly cash flow, and 20% of the profits upon the sale of the property.
Additionally, the 20% that is put down will be treated like private money. Private money is a second mortgage on the property. Depending on the interest rate environment, the rate for the private money is 3–4% higher than banks are getting for primary financing.
