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, ...

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
