University of Michigan
protest over tuition held on
behalf of undocumented students

Detroit Free Press, by David Jesse

Original Article

Posted By:JackBurton, 12/14/2012 3:08:02 PM

Seconds after University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman banged the gavel to start Thursday´s Board of Regents meeting, the first student stood up. Freshman Daniel Morales took off his shirt to unveil a yellow T-shirt underneath. He took a piece of red tape and put it across his mouth. (Snip) About 100 students followed suit, one at a time, sitting quietly on the floor as part of a protest calling for U-M to offer in-state tuition to those students who went to high school in Michigan, but are undocumented residents.
Snip added by staff.

Comments:
Well, I´d pass this but with the caveat that the difference in tuition bills be added to people who volunteer to ask the university to allow this. hahaha. Seriously: if this is a topic of discussion the U must have figured that the ability to admit more, ahem, diversified students is outweighed by the costs.

Raise the tuition on all these students enough so that what they have to pay equals what the aliens would have had to pay. That should shut them up quickly.

We can´t afford them anymore, sorry.
Go study in your own country. This madness has got to stop.

Smarmy punks are lazy. Why don´t they tutor kids - citizen or otherwise - rather than encourage lawbreaking and more handouts to the undeserving?

Sorry #1, but I´ll bet that 99% of the students are NOT paying their own tuition.

They are getting their education paid for by; parent(s), 529 plans, which other people contributed to, or student loans, (which we´ll all pay for eventually)!!!

And a kid from Illinois gets to pay out of state tuition?

One rate for all.

Or everybody not a citizen of the state pays the out of state rate.

No exceptions.

I have posted that the mindless drivel of diversity for its own sake is, well, mindless, when applied to african americans.
Diversity with foreign students in class really is a positive. One of my best classes ever was a human resources seminar, back about 15 years ago, and three muslims were enrolled. One man was from Indonesia, one man from Turkey, and a woman from Palestine.
When we reached that part of the course for the examination of civil rights laws applied to employment, each of them made a significant contribution...

How many states offer in-state tuition to illegals?

So a kid born in the United States who wants to go to a state school in another state, pays out-of-state tuition. But a kid who has no legal right to be in this country gets to go there at the reduced rate of an in-state student, courtesy of the taxpayers.

Disgusting.

When you allow them to set the language you surrender the argument. These are not "undocumented" students. They clearly are "documented" if they are enrolled. They are ILLEGAL ALIENS. Any time you write a letter to editor, use the correct terminology and don´t let them set the terms of debate, or you have already surrendered.

I live in this insane asylum, what goes on here politically is mind boggling. For a city that has as many advanced degree holding citizens, I say most of them are dumber than a box of hammers and I´m probably guilty of slighting the hammers and the box.

It´s hard to feel right about punishing a kid for the transgression of his/her parents. But to give the in-state tuition would reward the parents and encourage further illegal residency. So either choice entails an injustice. I hate those dilemmas.

Sorry, #10, but what you described is truly diverse. The universities are only interested in dermatological diversity.

They want everyone to arrive mostly indoctrinated and can´t stand independent thought otherwise they´d welcome religious people, conservatives and thinkers along with the usual suspects.

I should be able to write an entrance essay that says "I´m white, conservative and (x) denomination regular church goes" and have them clamoring to enroll me... but that isn´t the way it is.

Global Warming Alarmists Caught
Doctoring ´97-Percent Consensus´ Claims
Forbes, by James Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: jackburton- 3/12/2014 10:36:46 AM     Post Reply
Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming. After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses...

The publishers Springer and IEEE are removing more than 120 papers from their subscription services after a French researcher discovered that the works were computer-generated nonsense. Over the past two years, computer scientist Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, has catalogued computer-generated papers that made it into more than 30 published conference proceedings between 2008 and 2013. Sixteen appeared in publications by Springer, which is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, and more than 100 were published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE),

Snowfall has been heavier than normal for southern and western Lower Michigan so far this season. However, snowfall has actually been lower than normal for northeast Lower Michigan and some of the Upper Peninsula. The winter snow pattern so far has been characterized by above normal lake effect snow in western Lower Michigan, and several strong system snows bringing heavy snow to the southern half of Lower Michigan. The Ann Arbor and Detroit areas are the farthest above normal with 42 inches in Ann Arbor

Williamsport, Pa. - A constant, mild hiss. That was my chief observation when I returned to Anadarko Petroleum’s Landon Pad A, a natural-gas site in Lycoming County, Pa. October’s quietude was totally unlike the cyclone of equipment, personnel, and activity that dominated this spot last June, when Anadarko and the American Petroleum Institute hosted journalists and policy analysts here. (Snip) The trucks have driven off. Dozens of workers have moved on. The cranes are gone. What remains are three acres of gravel-covered farmland, five completed wells, and a steady, low-volume whoosh.

Food stamp cuts create high
demand for food bank supplies
USA Today, by Marisol Bello    Original Article

Food banks across the country, stretched thin in the aftermath of the recession, are bracing for more people coming through their doors in the wake of cuts to the federal food stamp program. Food stamp benefits to 47 million Americans were cut starting Friday as a temporary boost to the federal program comes to an end without new funding from a deadlocked Congress. Under the program, known formally as the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program, or SNAP, a family of four that gets $668 per month in benefits will find that amount cut by $36.

Farmers can now produce more crops in an environmentally sustainable way at a lower cost thanks to the efforts of hundreds of scientists over the past half-century. Seeds are developed in a laboratory and then field tested to enhance nutritional value or resistance to drought, disease and herbicides. Genetically modified crops are now planted on nearly a quarter of the world´s farm land by some 17.3 million farmers. More than 90% of those farmers are smallholders who harvest a few acres in developing countries.

Few issues divide Democrats more than energy policy, as we´ve learned as unions and environmentalists fight over the Keystone XL pipeline. More evidence now comes from California, where greens have lost an attempt to ban oil and gas hydraulic fracturing. Democratic leaders brought their fracking moratorium bill to the Assembly floor last week, and their rank and file revolted. The bill lost 37-24, with 12 Democrats joining 25 Republicans to defeat it. Another 18 Democrats abstained, ...

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
