I like this a lot and don't find this offensive in any way as an American. I actually think America is going overboard with the amount spent on prisons and the military. I'm 18 and almost finished with high school and will have to look forward to a massive debt unfortunately. :(
My advice is don't go into debt for any kind of career unless it's in one of the so-called "professions." Law, accountancy, medicine, engineering. Basically, highly-paid fields that are subject to state licensing. Don't be stupid and get a student loan to write poetry or teach history or philosophy, or do graphic art.
