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.

James and Lachlan Murdoch set out to battle for control over their father´s ´band-of-pirates´ empire after a yearlong battle with sexual harassment allegations against ex-Fox News chief Roger Ailes and most recently, Fox host Bill O´Reilly.

Rep. Keith Ellison did not shy away from placing the blame on former President Obama for the Democratic Party’s recent losses. At a University of Minnesota event Wednesday, moderator Rachel Stassen-Berger asked Ellison if he thought the former president “was responsible for some of the failures of 2016.” “Yeah, he was,” Ellison replied. While he noted that he is supportive of Obama and many of his policies, he acknowledged he “could have been a better party leader” –and that, he said, has “put his legacy in jeopardy.” “Your legacy is not a building that he’s going to construct in Chicago housing his presidential papers,”

Months before Donald Trump blew up American politics with his surprise win in November, he did the same thing to the conservative media. Through much of the campaign, two very different media moguls with colliding visions for the Republican Party vied for Trump’s soul: Roger Ailes, the longtime president and CEO of Fox News, and Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of the populist online tabloid Breitbart. Both were angling to be the media Svengali whispering in Trump’s ear. At one point, it seemed they might have been allies: Bannon worked to insinuate himself at Fox, and Ailes’ network aired some

Washington The FBI gathered intelligence last summer that suggests Russian operatives tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the Trump campaign, according to US officials. The new information adds to the emerging picture of how the Russians tried to influence the 2016 election, not only through email hacks and propaganda but also by trying to infiltrate the Trump orbit. The intelligence led to an investigation into the coordination of Trump´s campaign associates and the Russians. These officials made clear they don´t know whether Page was aware the Russians may have been using him. Because of the way

Or maybe superstition explains it. Like tribesmen laying out a sacrifice to placate King Kong, news outlets continue to make offerings to the Clinton gods.

At great cost: increased Chelsea exposure is tied closely to political despair and, in especially intense cases, the bulk purchasing of MAGA hats. So

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported.
