I didn't know liberals woke up this early.

Another addition to the enormous list of things you don't know.

Is this list in addition to the list my wife keeps about me? Or is this a seperate list?

The problem with calling these people criminals and thus discounting their education process is that it isn't so black and white. When you were 17, did you pass a speed limit sign saying 45, looked down at the speedodometer registering 54 and didn't make the effort to slow down? Did you ever egg someone's house? Smoke a joint? Those are definance of the laws that have no constructive (positive) outcome to society in general. Now compare that to a child being placed in a possible hostile environment to cross a border and living in fear of deporation just trying to educate him/herself. How many college kids have you met who were only there to party and flunked out? I knew a lot.

Is an ungrateful citizen really that much more important than a humble illegal? Is being a citizen the see all be all of being able to do things in this country?

Murph, I'm not saying keep them out of college. I am saying that they shouldn't get in-state tuition if they are illegal and undocumented. Get a student Visa and pay whatever those rates are, or pay out of state tuition. Take out a loan like the rest of America and spend the rest of your life paying it back.

if they live in a state why should they pay out of state tuition

I'll take it a step further and say the illegal aliens shouldn't be here in the first place. They should not get ANY special benefits or treatments. We can't deport them though, we wouldn't have anybody to mow our lawns.

seriously if they grew up in the state, they were paying taxes in the state, and if they bought a lottery ticket they even paid money directly into education.

if your hang up is that they shouldn't get in state tuition in the state they live in simply because their parents decided to bring them here, you're just advocating unnecessary financial burdens in a legal and admirable path to citizenship.

furthermore migrant laborers pay tax on a higher percentage of their income than do legal laborers. from that perspective they deserve government subsidized services more than anyone!

Once they reach the age of majority (18 in the US) they cease to be able to hide behind the fact that their parents brought them here and they themselves become criminals. They are here illegally and should be deported as soon as they identify themselves as such.

I don't believe that ANYONE should be allowed to attend a institution of higher learning whether it be ECPI, CPCC, UNC, or Harvard if they are not residents of this country or have the appropriate immigration documents. What they pay is irrelevant.

so if a child is one year old when they're brought into this country through no fault of their own, are completely americanized, pay into the system, are intelligent, speak perfect english, and want to further their education in an effort to become a naturalized citizen, which if you had read what the dream act is actually for you'd understand, too bad?

the dream act stipulates that they get in state tuition because they're trying to become a citizen. if they stop being a student, they lose that path. if they complete their degree and attain that citizenship, in retrospect wasn't it worth it?

do you support them getting free food, housing, clothing, and job training, plus at the least HEAVILY subsidized education (far more than simple in state tuition, with the exception of states like georgia, florida, california etc) if they choose to become a soldier for three years in an effort to become a naturalized citizen? seems like that would be a much larger financial drain.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
