Students vote to give blacks free
tuition at Western Kentucky University

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/20/2017 9:26:22 PM

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

My daughter attended a private Christian university and they kept on raising the tuition. At the onset of her last semester, they raised it again. After several phone calls I had the opportunity to speak with the CFO. She said that she understood my concern and that the tuition was vastly exceeding increases in earnings. On the other hand, she said that a large portion of the increase was going to grants for students from poorer families. I said in no ambiguous terms "So, in effect, you´re making me pay for others without my knowledge or consent."

Without deference, she responded "Yes, that´s pretty much what it amounts to."
My daughter finished her degree at another school.

Well, now that they passed it, the University should just pass the cost of each black student on to the tuition of each of the white students that voted for it....

Problem solved....

I have no problem with ´free´ college as long as the school does not use tax dollars to pay for it. The college should not charge tuition, the book companies offer the books at their own expense, the professors teach for no pay, the parking, dorms, health fees and assorted ancillary costs are provided ´free´. Everyone involved offers their knowledge and wares for nothing. That would be free college!!

Will colleges large and small who agree please come forward and show yourselves....

Like a mortgage disclosure form, each university should have to provide a disclosure form to every student not receiving free tuition, which shows exactly how much providing "free" tuition costs them, as an individual. A separate line-item can show the amortized cost of their contribution, assuming they take the maximum allowed time to pay off their student loans. The cost should then be compared to the average starting salary of graduates in their major. A little reality, please!

This can´t last for long. In one or two years the school will be overwhelmed by an influx of new black students looking for free tuition. In short order the costs for non-black students will escalate so that soon it will become an all-black campus with no one paying tuition and it will collapse on itself. As Margaret Thatches famously said "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people´s money."

Since this is based on the assumption that the blacks alive today, that will get the free tuitions, are the direct relatives of slaves and to make this anything but a one-sided racist scheme, let me propose the following.

Every white person that had relatives that fought for the Union to free the slaves receive the same reparation free tuition.

I had 18 relatives who fought for the Union and 3 who died in that conflict. They gave their lives so blacks in 2017 can have free tuition.

Doesn´t that seem fair?

This is clear discrimination. If they allow this, two things should happen: white students leave and a 1099 to the students who get a free education.

It will become another "historically black college" so the Obola´s can speak there.

So, this resolution is actually meant as a "conversation starter".

A good start would be to explain the need for this unlawful part of the resolution: "free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people....)".

This is merely moral preening on the part of the student government. They have no authority or power to dictate policy. And the likelihood of the school actually implementing a program like this is slim to none.

Too bad they aren´t actually learning anything. But they feel great about themselves.

When Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey goes on trial on federal corruption charges in less than three weeks, far more than his own fate hinges on the outcome. If Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, is convicted and then expelled from the United States Senate by early January, his replacement would be picked by Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey and an ally of President Trump. That scenario — where Mr. Menendez’s interim replacement would more than likely be a Republican — would have immediate and far-reaching implications: The Republicans would be gifted a crucial extra vote just

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin. Instead, he is more likely to have stirred up a whirlwind, which will sink his party even further in the voters’ eyes. Led by Charlottesville Deputy Mayor Wes Bellamy (a McAuliffe appointee to the local school board now on leave for racist, sexist, homophobic tweets, the city council narrowly approved removing a statue of Robert E.

NEW YORK -- A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL. Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color.
