Oops! Sorry Kids… Obama Forgot to Tell College Students He Cut Pell Grants Before Election

During the election this year the Obama Campaign released this online ad targeting young voters.
In the ad Obama told American youth that he kept his promise to make college more affordable.

He forgot to tell them he cut Pell Grants.
The information was released this week.
The Examiner reported:

Sorry, college students. President Obama has cut your access to Pell Grants by 33%; he just forgot to mention it before Election Day.

During the recent campaign, President Obama claimed credit for increasing funding to the Pell Grant program, which provides college funds, free from repayment, to millions of students. However, an email sent out Tuesday to some Dallas college students is revealing a detail the President forgot to mention: the time a student can receive a Pell Grant has been cut, by as much as three years. With Pell Grants for the fall semester now dispersed, colleges are informing students of their options, bringing the cuts to light.

The email, sent out by the Dallas County Community College District, informed students of the changes to the Pell Grant program. It revealed that the number of semesters a student could receive a Pell Grant had been cut from 18 semesters down to 12. It is a detail likely unknown to most students; in fact, the cut in grants has gone largely unreported by the media.

Sorry kids.

    18 semesters? Jesus God! That’s nine years in college! 12 semesters is a masters degree for Christ’s sake! 8 semesters and you’re on your own as far as I’m concerned.

  • The Elector of Saxony

    This actually might work out for both the taxpayer and the student. Given that the United States is about to enter a protracted period of very slow, flat, or slightly negative economic growth, we don’t need any more useless young people studying art history or peace studies; effectively using government (read taxpayer) grants to extend their adolescence.

    What we need is hungry young people realizing they must get their act together and learn to fix electrical appliances, plumb, roof houses, work on cars, or get an education that leads to a skill. That, in and of itself, might remove the fog of Leftism from the eyes of some of those who have heretofore been protected from the realities of life by extending their stay in college well into their thirties.

  • I predict buyers remorse and a lot of shared misery in the next four years.

They voted for him big time. Without that voting block Obama could not have won re-election. Until they feel the pain personally, they will always vote for the guy that falsely promises them everything, and then doesn’t deliver. It’s the only way the young and dumb will finally rebel.

    Obama’s claim he doubled Pell Grant funding is entirely false

    [As noted in the picture below from Obama’s facebook page, Democrats
    are claiming President Obama has doubled funding for Pell Grants.

    The graphic deceptively fails to mention that not only did President
    Obama not double funding for Pell grants last year, he cut funding
    and would have made deeper cuts had Congress passed his 2011
    budget.

    Beginning July 1, thousands of college students will no longer be
    eligible for Pell Grants. The changes are a result of a a $1 trillion
    spending bill passed overwhelmingly by Congress and signed into
    law by President Obama in December 2011 that funds the government
    through September 2012. The bill, which Obama signed, actually
    cut Pell Grants by $11 billion dollars over the next decade.]

    WE WON – 4 MORE YEARS – YAYE – THANK YOU SANDRA FLUKE!!

    “And saving Detroit?”

    Really? All he saved (temporarily) were the UAW’s outsized labor contracts while screwing over secured creditors in violation of US Bankruptcy law. (Go to law school to find out what all that means) Those contracts will choke the successor orgs back into bankruptcy court again in very short order.

    Pretty obvious you don’t understand the insurance industry or the Obamacare bill. All the bill is designed to do is destabilize the US health care markets as to delivery of service, financing, and risk pricing. In other words, destroy it, so that it can be rebuilt in the good old Soviet model; fine if you’re young and healthy or are mildly ill, awful if you really need advanced medical care and treatment. Obama knows what every Socialist Fuehrer knows: the healthy are a vast majority of any population. The very sick don’t vote, can’t and won’t fight, and don’t have time to wait. They die quietly (in political terms) and suffer much.

    Then there’s 8% unemployment (plus another 10% underemployment), a 400% increase in the national debt, and one of the last strong industries in the country announced massive layoffs in the aftermath of the election in anticipation of Obama’s medical device tax that will now proceed to kill 100s of thousands of jobs across the country. Did I mention that the Muslim Brotherhood, the ideological forefather of Al Qaeda, is now in control of the Middle East, thanks to the feckless and clueless Barack Obama? He was unqualified when first elected and he has performed up to his level of preparation. What could we expect from someone who was in the Senate for 10 minutes and never did anything of significance but vote “present” 1000 times?

    Obama benefits from a number of things, chief among them being that the media paints a pervasive picture that favors him. Just like in this instance, they did not paint an accurate picture of the particulars, and the impression was favorable to Obama. People who are not deeply informed cannot make this distinction.

    The ideas you support are not American, they are not from here, they are from Europe, Russia, and China. They include socialism, fascism, and communism, all masked under a false facade of a benevolent state. These ideas can only be validated by extending the founding principles through an endless degree of interpretation, such as “penumbra” and “precedence”, so that there are now fewer limits than ever upon the power of the federal government.

    Sure go ahead and think Obama is “awesome”, things are great. The worst financial problems are in the areas where your brand of ideas have the greatest influence. New York, California, Illinois, are all facing severe financial difficulties, as they seek to “spread the wealth around” Detroit’s rating has just been downgraded again further into junk status, as they seek to sell worthless bonds or face furloughing thousand of municipal employees on Jan. 1. Happy Hew Year to them.

    Here is the question none on your side can answer;
    How do you expect to pay for the implementation of your ideas?

    It simply won’t be after 4 more years of Obama. Once the government sucks most of the capital out of the economy, there won’t be any available to hire people and produce products. You do know that we are now 16 trillion in debt, and on track to owe 30 trillion by the end of Obama’s second term. There’s not enough money in the world to pay for it all, and we’ll be Greece.

    Now, more then ever it is time to get a Trust fund for your child. But it is important for you to start getting a grip on what your child’s interest are at an early age.

    Research was to help you new college student to save and make money while in school. Many programs to help and research their options. Many Colleges will help your child work there and pay as they go.

    Look at all the options and the lowest interest rates if you need to take a loan. But most importantly, your child must search what jobs will be there for them when they graduate and ever go to the places they may be looking for a job and talk to the owners or managers of those companies and familiarize yourself with them and they with you.

    It is best to always keep a step ahead of your competition and above all dress appropriately at any and all your visits.

    Heck with Obama, many have gone to college and in low debt or no debt, without Obama.

    They ARE gone, they just got a foolhardy temporary reprieve. The business model of making cars using 65$ per benefit loaded hour line labor, when Toyota and Honda build better cars right here in America for half that is a dead end. You don’t have much in the way of a specific understanding of micro and macro economic concepts, and in that way you are the absolutely typical undereducated Obama voter. Obama won the election because the electorate now engages in magical thinking with respect to economics: “Obama is gonna pay us out of his stash! He’s gonna pay my gas and my mortgage! My Obamaphone!” Value? Capital? Supply? Demand? Math? Those things are hard, and hurt the heads of the stupid, all of whom obligingly voted for the guy who promised them they could have unicorns and pony rides forever.

    Video: Feds shut down 100-year-old oyster company, destroy some lives and dreams

    Hey, no bigs. It’s just a 100-year-old company and California’s only surviving cannery, a sustainable, family-owned operation employing 30 people. The Drakes Bay Oyster Company has been in a seven-year fight with the federal government and environmental groups over whether it’s 40-year lease would be renewed this week. The Lunny family, which owns the oyster farm, was among a group of families that sold their ranch lands to the National Parks Service in the 1970s to protect them from developers, with the understanding they would get 40-year-leases renewed in perpetuity. After buying and operating the oyster farm without incident— they were even featured as outstanding environmental stewards by the National Parks Service— the Lunnys learned in 2005 they were accused of bringing environmental damage to an area the NPS and environmentalists were anxious to designate as the nation’s first federally recognized marine wilderness.

    Sec. of the Interior Ken Salazar decided todaythe farm’s lease will not be renewed, despite some support for it from from Sen. Dianne Feinstein and serious questions raised by scientists about the research used to impugn the Lunnys.

    GM to let go of temp workers Friday

    General Motors Components Holdings, LLC in Kokomo has said they will let go all temp workers Friday.

    “We are releasing our temps,” said Kent Eaton, personnel director for GMCH Kokomo. “Its basically based on business volumes, which have decreased late in the year. It makes business sense to adjust the workforce to meet the needs of the business.”

    Eaton said less than 50 workers have been informed of their impending loss of employment.

    He said GM doesn’t have any additional employment cuts planned in the immediate future.

    “There are no future projections that this would be an ongoing event,” Eaton said. “We wish them all well. They’ve done a great job for us.”

    Oh, I see. I ran together some common terms that people who operate businesses understand, but pot-smoking morons don’t. 65$ per benefit-loaded hour FOR line labor. That means that when you calculate the hourly cost of each worker who builds the cars, you add in the things that the uneducated Obama voter never considers; State and Federal employment taxes, health benefits, PTO, pension and retirement benefits, and so on…you’ve heard of these things, surely? We call a salary or hourly wage calculated to include all the true costs “loaded”. It’s the only way to truly understand the bottom line impact of each worker. Toyota and Honda build their cars here for half of the loaded cost per hour of GM and Chrysler, therefore they will again bury both companies.

    Needless to say, she has done nothing to advance the cause of Israeli-Palestinian peace or even to halt Israel’s increasingly naked land grab there (for which she can share blame with the rest of the administration, AIPAC, the U.S. Congress, and the Netanyahu government). Finally, although she’s helped articulate the need for the “pivot” to Asia and has done some effective salesmanship on that topic both at home and in the region, this move was both a geopolitical no-brainer and still faces significant obstacles. Among other things, the recent debacle over the aborted strategic cooperation agreement between South Korea and Japan (which led to the resignation of one of Korean President Lee Myung-Bak’s top aides) is a setback for both Lee and for Clinton’s efforts to build a stronger coalition in Asia.
    [……………………..]

    Second, Clinton isn’t a great secretary of state because that is not the role that she’s been asked to play in this administration. Dean Acheson, Henry Kissinger, and James Baker had extremely close working relationship with the presidents that they served, and each enjoyed far more authority over foreign policy than Clinton has been given by the Obama White House. Obama’s initial reliance on a set of “special envoys” diluted Clinton’s clout even more, even when some of them (such as the late Richard Holbrooke) were personally close to the secretary. […………..]

    Add to this the fact that the Pentagon and intelligence community now controls vastly greater resources than the State Department does, and has for more impact on our relations with trouble spots like Central Asia, Yemen, the Persian Gulf, etc.. Given that raw bureaucratic reality, it’s not surprising that Clinton cannot point to any major achievements on her watch. Indeed, a good case can be made that American foreign policy is still operating ass-backwards: Instead of seeing military power as one of the tools we use to advance a broad political agenda, today military imperatives tend to dominate and the diplomats just get sent out to line up some compliant partners and to clean things up afterward (see under: Drone wars).

    Which is not to say that Clinton has performed badly. On the contrary, I’d give her high marks for executing the job she was asked to perform, especially given the constraints (both organizational and geopolitical) in which she had to operate. So maybe the “rock star” label is right after all. Rock stars get a lot of attention and sometimes adulation, and sometimes they even deserve it. But not even Elvis had much lasting impact on international politics.

    The news about the Pell Grant cut was out well before the election. I posted it on my office wall for students to see as soon as I got it.

    I remember yelling at the screen when President Obama made his claim that he had “improved” the Pell Grant because I knew the statement was false.

    Blame this one on the news media who apparently cannot be bothered to question anything President Obama says. Also, I wonder why the college chose to wait so long to let their students know about the change.

  • Bigkahuna

    Jharp , you should know that Obama and gm closed 10 plants, laid off 10,000, screwed the secured shareholders, gave the unions $50 billion tax dollars, screwed non union pensions and illegally allowed them to carry forward $45 billion in previous losses right ? They also get $10,000 in subsidies to fund crappy volts. That’s right gm paid zero fair share after that massive bailout for union thugs. They won’t pay their fair share until that $45 billion is made back. That’s not huge success that’s bribery, thievery, not fair, not level or right. Ask those that play by the rules and laws. He is a thief and scumbag. They went bankrupt just not the legal way. Also closed 10,000 gm dealers for no reason killing 100,000 jobs. The reason he won was the msm never showed anything bad about him and he lied about his successes and lied about obamacare. Insurance is up over $3000, not down $2500, it has tons of taxes and screws the elderly. Doctors are refusing Medicare or retiring so that’s fewer docs many more patients and its triple the cost he said it was and counting. He lied to everyone’s face saying it wasn’t a tax then lied again o Supreme Court saying it was a tax. The man is lying about fast n furious and Benghazi as well as security leaks. No wonder you love him…you are a clueless moron. Oh and 6 out of 10 gm cars is now made in china.

    The other reason he got elected was they got voting extended for weeks so libs could bribe voters with pizza, beer, and find every illegal, bum, deadbeat and lazy voter they could get on a van or bus to vote…oh and don’t forget the handicapped and retarded they took to the polls telling them to vote for Obama. Then count the 98% racist black vote because the only thing he has done for them is obama stamps, obamacash, obamafare ,obama phones, obamauneloyment checks. Their poverty , unemployment rate, welfare and foodstamps rates are at record highs. That’s devastating to them and they voted for it because his skin color only. They are cutting their own wrists….just slowly. And Detroit is a festering turd waiting to be flushed.

    47% of the voting public is receiving some kind of Gov. Assistance, so all he really needed was 4% of the voting retards to get him elected. GM has paid back how much of that borrowed tax payer dollars. This president threw trillions of dollars of our money up in the air and don’t know where it landed. I’m thinking Jharp is a black man on a Gov. Paycheck.

And yeah, 12 semesters?! I hope that just pays one class at a time!

  • Amos

    Sasja: some kids go three semesters per year. Sometimes it’s laziness, sometimes it’s all they can afford. Sometimes, it’s because meeting the growing list of stupid requirements makes scheduling difficult. Sometimes it’s easier to bang through technical classes in the summer. Or, non-technical, if that’s your drift. Add in the pretty-common 5-year plan.

    JHost: On Chrysler + GM, profits were record in nominal figures. They profited something like $135 per car. Chrysler’s 2011 profits were about $183 million. Apple’s were $25 billion for the record. Nevertheless, none of it takes away the problem that taxpayers are still on the hook, nor the creative destruction problem of blowing through debt on the taxpayer nickel to make profits on the union account, nor the problem of furthering the trend of crony capitalism that is wrecking everything.

    Worst of all is the assumption that a crony/bailout model is “good for America.”

    I think everyone here is perfectly happy with the cut in Pell Grants. The problem is that the more we subsidize education, the more incentives the schools have to bloat administration costs and hike tuition. Which is inescapably what we have seen.

    So, while we can point to some students who have benefited from the lucre thrown at education, every student not on a full ride is hit with higher tuition and more debt. This is particularly troubling for kids who drop out, because they will have debt, but not the credentials that lead to higher wages. These kids tend to be from poorer demographics who have been failed by the public education system Progressives run across the country. Add to that the number of kids who have been lulled into thinking that the point of college was to have learning experiences (a point generally made by Progressives who call for ever more singularly useless degrees), and you end up with students who DO graduate, but with a worthless scrap of paper, and sets of skills that are generally of little value.

    The sentiment here is called schadenfreude.

    And it’s totally misplaced. House Republicans slipped this Pell limitation into a comprehensive appropriations bill. And when I say slipped, I mean at the 11th hour in the dark of night (a.k.a. in conference). While Obama did sign the bill, trying to paint him as the perpetrator in this action is beyond ridiculous, but expected.

    On a larger point, you Tea Partiers want government to cut spending. Well, this is what that looks like. If you are going to attempt to score political points over each and every reduction, don’t expect to see too many.

    ‘Your problems arise when one’s sense of patriotism is tied too closely to the present government rather than the nation. This can lead one to despise the nation when one party is in power and love it when another is. That’s simply ignorance. The nation is the nation, regardless of the government; your love should be for the people, the place, and the ideals of the nation, not who happens to be president at the time.’

  • 12 semesters is a bachelors degree if a student takes three semesters a year. 18 is six years at three semesters a year. If someone only takes two semesters a year, that’s six and nine years respective.

    Sorry, sounds reasonable to me. There is no reason the government needs to be a complete open pocketbook, and while this is a curtailing and done by Obama and his admin, I’m okay with it. Now, some eternal students might not be and hopefully their rosé lenses will fall a bit due to this.

    I have a college student, I know many college students. Don’t despair fellow Americans, they are slowly wising up. The students I know are rethinking their majors, dropping out of the useless educational tracks and switching to real life/work studies. Many did NOT vote for Obama, they went libertarian or did not vote at all.

    I’m sure after some real life experience they will choose wisely in the next election.

    Also, thanks to the Obama economy most parents do not have tuition money like they used to and are looking for more substance in their children’s higher education.

    i wonder if the college community will start looking over their shoulders. still gainfully employed and cranking out graduates to an ever diminishing job market. not exactly getting the most for our buck. i remember a 60 minute segment from years ago about “diploma” mills that were set up to take pell grants and if the students never completed the program there was no one who cared. no accountability. i knew of one that was notorious in that even if you put in your time there was always some reason you couldn’t find a job…the folks who used their own funds were mad but the pell grant folks no so much. there’s an expiration date on a lot of what is learned as newer and newer applicants are turned loose on the job market and some of what is learned gets stale and you may be required to go back to take refresher courses.

  • Rose

    Amos, I agree with most of what you said, but can’t agree with being “perfectly happy” with the cut in Pell Grants. While many abuse it, for some it is the way to work their way out of low paying jobs. If someone a part-time student and part-time employee, they will only be able to take a class or two at time. That lengthens the time that their degree with take. Or, if they start at a community college and go on for a Bachelor’s, they are out of Pell Grant money just when the education gets its most expensive.

    My school IS oriented to producing people in technical careers, but is not immune to administrative bloat. Several times, highly paid special assistants suddenly appear on the job. No one knew that they were looking for a “special assistant”. Lo and behold a few months later a high profile position opens up and the administration says ‘how lucky we are that we had someone already on staff with the experience needed’ and the “special assistant” is now the favorite going into the hiring process.

    And Shadow (aka JHarp ?)….

    Did you hear that Barack Obama was President? Do you know that he has ALREADY been President for nearly 4 YEARS?

    1) You haven’t proven your story about who was responsible for that provision being in the bill. Based on what I do know, I find your version to be highly doubtful.

    2) President Obama SIGNED the bill. If he wasn’t OK with it, he has the power to veto it. He did NOT veto it.

    3) Knowing that he signed the bill with that provision, he still went out and told the American public a different story.

    Why do you think he should be protected from any questions about his actions? WHEN do you think it is reasonable to expect him to stop blaming everything on EVERYONE else?

    On the issue of K-12 education … It is a crime. One of the reasons students take so many semesters to get a degree is that they have to go back and learn what they should have learned before graduating from high school. When you have to spend a semester on just learning how to read and write at a college level and even more to get your math up to speed, you will take 6 years to get a degree. GED versus high school diploma is not the indicator you would think either. Often times, students with GED’s score well on entrance tests. They dropped out of high school because they were bored to death.

    And, if any of your children plan on a career in any medical field, they should take chemistry in high school. The lack of that one class and/or the knowledge covered in that class has cost many students a year toward getting into their major.

    Because some classes are only offered once a year, the student has prepared in the fall to get started. If they can’t meet the basics in reading, writing, math and/or chemistry, they will be waiting another year to get started on their major classes.

    I had a neighbor vote for him precisely because of the college affordability issue. I tried to tell him, but oh well.

  • FMB42

    Far too many of these college students have never worked a legitimate income tax paying job in their lives.

    Large numbers of these non-working 18-28+ year olds spend 8 to 10 bucks a day on “hip” restaurant lunches (they “rate” the food and service of these places on various college forums). The rest of us, of course, know that you can feed yourself a week’s worth of lunches, for $10 or less, if you bother to fix your own meals.

    A thread topic (on another forum) recently stated “college students struggle to pay higher fuel costs”. You would not believe the attitude of some of the students who posted on this thread. No work, outrageously expensive “burger” lunches and dinners, pricey “eye-pods,” the latest costly (and not so financially) “smart” phones, and grossly over-priced casual clothing and shoes. This is not to mention the “I’m not working, or even looking for work” body piercings, tattoos, hair dos and dye jobs that so many of these “struggling” students sport. Yet, not a word was hear from these students about the “higher costs” of these “other” expenses.

    The above “college life” has become the “career of choice” for too many of these students. Some people will claim that “mommy and daddy” pay for all of this. However, just as many of these “high living” students get all, or part, of their money from the government and/or various grants.

    Meanwhile, many of us (myself included) started our first legitimate income tax paying job while we were in Jr. high or high school. The sad thing is that people like us (i.e. income taxpayers) pay for countless public assistance funded lifestyles that, in many ways, are little different than the non-productive “college life” described above.

  • Rodney

    The reason for 12 semesters is for those students going part time. perhaps someone working a job that can only take a few classes a semester. it also can not generally be used for a higher degree except “In some cases, however, a student enrolled in a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program might receive a Federal Pell Grant.” So those interested in becoming a teacher of the garbage they just learned with no experience to back it up can get grants for longer.

    I don’t understand why it is being said that the Pell Grants are no big deal (in a few words) & it is liberal to receive them (in a few more words). At least this is what I am understanding. I am a Conservative student, wife, and mother. My husband works and is in school, so his income is not sufficient enough to cover anything but bills & what the family needs on a regular basis. I don’t work because I wouldn’t bring anything home after childcare, so I am a full-time student; my husband is not. The Pell Grants help cover the costs of anything that the loans do not. I do not plan on being in school long enough for this change to affect me, but my hysband very well could be & it has nothing to do with being lazy or living off mom & dad, or any other bad remark that was said against Pell Grant receivers. I do understand that there are MANY students who take advantage of the grant program, but not all do.

Rest assured, your time will come and there is absolutely nothing on god’s green earth you can do to change that fact.
    I only wish I could be there to witness your epiphany.

    “(i.e., gay rights, abortion, marijuana decriminalization, etc.) than the economic issues.. “
    All the while never realizing that without a sound economic policy NONE of your pet issues will matter squat.

    “We feel its more important for people to have basic human rights before we worry about how to make the most money…”
    Choosing to be gay is now a basic human right? While I agree you are free to play the Russian roulette game of death sexually all you want it hardly rises to the level of a basic human right. Were I to CHOOSE to only screw supermodels from Victoria’s Secret, should you be on the hook to pick up the tab?

    BTW, while salivating over the million of our young you intend to murder, who speaks to THEIR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS?

    Including smoking dope with infanticide speaks volumes as the level of seriousness you present.

    “Plus we also realize that the GOP put us in this economic mess when Bush was in office,”

    Perhaps instead of chooming it up like your messiah you should have paid a bit better attention in civics. While it is true Bush was the President before your lord and savior, I would council you to peruse some of the numbers under the latest incarnation of Hitler, Bush, forced you to “suffer” under. And rather than go into all the gory details by doing your research for you I would simply advise you to do a bit better job of garnering the evidence for your opinions. The president doesn’t write laws….only signs or vetoes them when they pass a majority of Congress.

    So take a peek at who was running the law making process when we started our decent to hell and get back to us.

    “so sorry if we don’t want to elect some guy named Mitt who self-proclaimed he doesn’t care about 47% of the population…”

    It is very difficult to interact with a liar. And that’s what this statement is. A lie. And either you are woefully uninformed due to a lack of intellectual curiosity or a dastardly lying piece of excrement. Your retort if forthcoming will likely ferret out which it is…….

    “News flash, there is less rich than poor,”

    News flash…….until your side got it’s hands on the keys to the kingdom, more people were lifted from the middle class ranks to the upper crust than in the country’s history. More minorities owned homes. Less people needed food stamps to feed their families. Less people required a portion of their sustenance from the govt. and less people looked to somebody else as the responsible party for their misery.

    “less elite than lower and middle class,”

    See above. Unlike you, I needn’t repeat myself to appear to present a cogent argument.

    “and an increasing minority population.”

    Many of whom are not legally allowed to be here. Yet we pay through the nose for your constituency.

    “Until the republican party shows some interest in those demographics, you won’t put anyone in office in the next few decades.”

    I seem to remember hearing those EXACT same words out of puffed up chested libtards in December of 2008 and yet……..

    “Additionally, quit crying about funding to education…”

    Why? Why don’t you have to pay for your education? Another “basic human right” your indoctrinators at school convinced you that you were entitled to? It’s bad enough that my tax dollars already go to propping up failing institutions incapable of educating our children…..in spite of having no children involved. Why do I need to pay you to obtain a degree in Hip Hop Studies? Were more of you morons actually getting an engineering or hard science education we wouldn’t have to import skilled professionals from all over the world to take Americans jobs.

    Thanks a bunch dipstick.

    “without a highly skilled workforce, there is no future for our economy.”

    Yet more and more of you graduate with degrees in women’s studies or some other potential grievance-mongering skill you intend to parley into your silly unattainable utopia. We see the horrendous drop-out rate and the incredible levels of illiteracy and wonder wtf we are paying for.

    “And one last thing… taxes are the price of civilization so stop acting like its some huge inconvenience to help out our country and fork over a portion of your paychecks”

    And one last thing……..how much of my hard work do you feel you are entitled to?

    How many late nights have you stepped in my place to cover? How many double shifts have you worked when people don’t show up for work and the only other alternative is to close the doors? How much have you done without so that the people who work for me can be paid because taxes or regulations have hamstrung my business so bad that I cannot make enough to meet payroll?

    What’s really funny…….our “civilization” is likely in the worst shape it has been in a very very long time yet we continue to pour money at it. Our roads are crap, bridges are falling down or in such disrepair thinking folks shun their use. The price of most everything is through the roof and for what?

    Since the chance of that happening approaches zero, from the negative side, I would have no problem with such an arrangement.

    Why do you root for America to fail?

    You voted for the failure of America by voting for the affirmative action failure #occupying the Offal Office.

    We’re going headlong off the fiscal cliff already so Let it F-cking Burn (LiFB).

    Hay media where have you been the last five years, have you finally realized your commander and chief is a liar, dictator and a thief. Now how about the truth behind this recession, Obama care, where all the money is going and why American companies have abandon this country, you have not gotten answers from the democrats how about you ask the republicans and tea party. There could be a hug prize in it for whoever gets the real stores.

  • This is exactly why I wrote “The Trickster’s Guide To College.” Too much reliance on everyone else and not enough reliance on SELF.

    All you are fighting with this retarded kid Jharp, but if we are going to win elections in the future, we can’t keep fighting these retards. Jharp don’t care about facts. Jharp believes he’s informed, he believes in green energy, global warming, fairies, an the the government is here to help.
    We need his retard vote on our side, so we have to change his beliefs. Unfortunately, his retard vote counts the same as mine.

    The auto industry should have been allowed to file chapter 11 bankruptcy and reorganized. Then they would have been able to get themselves from under Union control and be profitable WITHOUT taxpayer money.

    This is simply ending a trial program that Obama started. Quote from USA Today

    The department’s 2012 budget calls for ending a three-year experiment that allows students to qualify for two Pell Grants in a calendar year, to allow them to attend college year-round, and for eliminating the subsidy in which the government pays the interest on student loans for graduate students while they are in school. (The subsidy for undergraduate students would remain in place.)

    However the actual funding increase occurred and is remaining.

    In the 2008-09 academic year, Pell Grant expenditures were about $18 billion. In 2011-12, expenditures are $36 billion.

    While funding has doubled, the number of students who receive Pell Grants has increased more slowly. In 2008, the grants assisted 6.1 million students, while in 2012, 9.7 million students received aid, an increase of 59 percent.
