    I happen to work with one of those irresponsible nincompoops. He is a full grown man, in his thirties and he has ZERO vacation and sick time because he uses it as soon as he 'earns' it (he has no major physical illness). He loves the somewhat local casino. He gets a lot of calls from collection agencies. I feel sure that, if his debt were magically cleared, it would not be long before he had a new set of debts and nothing would change for him or about his life.
    HOWEVER
    I do believe that his type is a minor part of what is being forgiven by the Rolling Jubilee and I am willing to risk bailing out some of those folks to erase the debts of others who will truly benefit and to make a statement to the banksters.

    When lots of people show up to vote, Democrats tend to win.
