  1. Obama wants free junior college for anyone with a C+ average (what Obama carried?) who attends school half-time and is making “steady progress”. Community colleges will also be required to adopt “promising and evidence-based institutional reforms” to improve student outcomes.”

    How much free stuff can this transformed country afford?

  2. I can’t speak for other states, but here in SoCal, the majority of kids who attend CC are anchor babies and/or Dreamers who have to take remedial reading and writing in their first year. Many only speak limited English!
    My gardener has a kid who has been in CC for FIVE yrs. and keeps getting suspended b/c he can’t make the GPA required to remain in CC. And, yes, the taxpayers are footing the bill for nearly everything, including housing. They know how to work the system!
    I don’t see how we can survive another two years of Obama’s ‘big giveaway’. Taxation without representation!

    • How does this sh*t get funded? Anybody know how this works? Haven’t had a budget in so long — we’ll never find out. But it will be a very very long time to get government spending down.

      How come nobody just comes right out and ask this guy and the money is coming from where. I really do not know how this free stuff is paid for. We must be bleeding out by now.

      • Don’t worry, Boehner will approve everything, all the free stuff, etc. for Obama. The ones that were thrown off the committees can they take him to Court and let Boehner prove why he had to do that to them, what evidence he has, its so obvious, to get even with them for telling the truth about Boehner and his back room deals with Obama, the commie.

    • And it’s not even that big of a deal, considering the grants etc available from good institutions based on diversity, minority, color, etc.

      Hmm, perhaps this free 2 year community college gigs are for the privileged kids whose working tax payer parents can no longer afford to pony up. Nope, that can’t be it.

    • Sorry, can’t help. I noticed her absence as well as star’s, who I guess decided she shouldn’t engage many of us while “Je suis, Charlie” is still breaking news.

      I am so worn out from all of it, even I have to take breaks from ranting here, so I can use whatever residual energy I still have to rant on FB, where I can truly piss off and piss on the idiots.

      • All of us need breaks and sanity. But it’s good to have a safe place to rant. When Obama leaves office it will be like having had an 8 year demolition party. He will be happy and rested. We will be exhausted from just having to plug so many holes in the dike.

        Anyway, I knew about Star. Hope Julie is ok, that’s all. Enjoyed her contributions. And yours also Sadie.

        FB — that’s a workout in crazy.

        • You too are so invaluable here, thank you. I’m thinking it’s very cold where Julie is??and Star, cheers my friend.
          Ol Barry has completely lost his mind if he thinks I am paying for everyone’s Community College free ride.

      • Sadie, I am worn out too, now and then. Over here, in Europe, there is so much going on that I now rant mostly on European media sites. I can imagine that Keith many times must be sick and tired of politics too.

  3. All hell is breaking bad in France, and this clown of a President is flying off to give away more free stuff. I feel so safe, don’t you? Am I still sleeping? This morning does not seem real.

    • Unfortunately we will have to be attacked again here on American soil before he’ll do anything about foreign policy. The next two years are all about finishing the domestic transformation and his legacy.

        • x2 — Obama — ho hum — and besides it’s now like he is unsympathetic to the Muslims.

          But France — and Paris in particular — is grabbing America’s attention and some are now turning inward and taking a good look at what is happening here. Clouds and silver linings.

          But RIP for all of those souls lost to make this point. Thoughts and prayers for families and friends.

      • Geoff, Do you really think that Obama would do or say anything different, if we were attacked again? I used to think he was a closet Muslim, but he took off that mask long ago. In Obama’s world, everything is about him or everything that happens is the fault of someone else. He simply does not give a crap and no longer pretends that he does.

        • I do not understand why he has continued with his schedule, without speaking once again on the Paris issue.
          Someone just mention on the news that we need a Winston Churchill. No I am not saying I would feel better with anything that rambles out of his mouth. Nothing, nothing coming out of his mouth. Him and his click could not shut up while our P. were under attack, and our towns were being torn apart, our roads, malls, etc being invaded. NO Permits were needed.
          Now nothing from him. He could at least pretend he is talking to someone in France while sitting at his desk. He is letting Gitmo prisoners go, and no one in the msm is making a peep about it.
