Ilhan Omar Criticized for Saying 'Ethos' of GI Bill
Should Be Applied to All Students

Original Article

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was criticized on Twitter after she said that the “ethos” of the G.I. Bill that gives military personnel the option to go to college for free should be applied to everyone. “Imagine what it would do for our country and those who live here if we were to take the ethos behind the original G.I. Bill and apply it to everybody—canceling all student debt and making public colleges, universities, and vocational schools tuition-free.”

Comments:

With this stupid statement she not only shows her contempt for the US Military, but further illustrates her idiocy and incompetence. The Montgomery GI Bill that was in place when I was in the service, you had to deduct money from your pay during your time of service. After an honorable discharge the veteran would qualify for $1,564 per month over 36 months (as a full time student) if used within 10 years of discharge. This isn't some "Free" give-away program. It was an earned benefit that was offered to induce enlistment. She really must be too stupid to recognize the difference between veterans' benefits that are earned and free giveaways to irresponsible fools who took on too much debt in an attempt to obtain a worthless degree that they could not afford.

Those eligible for GI bill benefits earned them by giving several years of their lives and in many cases their health and parts of their bodies to their country. If those with large student debts wish it, the military recruiting offices are always open.

The stupidity of 'Congress critters' and especially the America haters is beyond comprehension for most normal Americans. This is the same fool that wants free health care for all. She doesn't understand that seniors pay between $9000 and $12,000 per year per couple for 'free' health care. There should be a mandatory civics intelligence test before a citizen can qualify to run for office. That might eliminate some of the 'intelligentsia in the Democrat field before we get to a Primary election.

Why doesn't she start a non-profit to offer free education. People can contribute as they see fit. The US Treasury is not her piggy bank!

I earnestly hope that, after the 2020 election, the President directs the FBI and the IRS to accelerate their investigations of this corrupt Muslim wench who doubtless committed multiple frauds to obtain citizenship. She should be stripped of her citizenship, thrown out of Congress, and sent back to Somalia where, owing to her family's previous allegiances, she will probably be executed.

Warren wants to screw those individuals who paid off student loans (myself) and families that saved for their children's education (myself x3). Now AOC offers the ultimate screw job regarding veterans. Not only crazy, but blatantly disrespectful. Ethos?!?! What person, other than a pedantic fool, even uses that word?

Aside from being morally repugnant (for devaluing the sacrifice of service in the military and risking life for country), this idea is economically retarded (for ignoring the consequences of unrestrained growth of costs).

This is an earned benefit that I am happy to contribute toward. NOTHING IS FREE. Everyone else can work and save or go after scholarships and grants and pay back what is not covered. I am so tired of these people deciding they want to confiscate every cent I earn so they can buy votes.

When ILLhan 0mar can convince all the professors, administrators, and other support staff to work free; When ILLhan 0mar can convince the people who own the land upon which the colleges stand to provide the land free; When ILLhan 0mar can convince the people who build the buildings, and those that provide the construction materials to do so free; When ILLhan 0mar can convince the utility companies that supply the utilities to do so free; When ILLhan 0mar can convince the textbook publishers to supply the books free; When ILLhan 0mar can convince the suppliers of food to the cafeteria , and the people who prepare it to do so free; Then we can have a discussion about providing a college education to all who want it free.

Ignorant foreign smiling fool. Free health care? Even when you look for a doc taking new patients and the office says they’re NOT taking new patients with Medicare? What good is FREE health care when the doctor refuses to see you because he or she gets STIFFED for payment? We seniors know how Medicare sucks. So even if it’s FREE it STILL sucks! Sober up!

I don't think college professors and administrators will work pro bono. Nice people won't give universities land and free buildings. Colleges will have to be selective if admissions standards change to reflect scarce resources. Maybe that free education won't be a plum anyone can pluck from a tree. Be careful what you wish for, liberals.

G. I. Bill, I certainly earned it. Vietnam, sergeant, combat squad leader earning $100/month (I think it was taxable). 16-wounds when walking point an tripped a mine. 65-70” inches of residual scars. Freeloaders, go earn it, join the military and serve where it pleases you the most. Minnesotans, I know your generous soul, don’t destroy your lives to kowtowing to totalitarians.

I put four kids through college with only a small personal loan and by scrimping and saving. We didn't take vacations while they were students, drove old, used cars until the wheels fell off, ate out only rarely and Scrooged on everything else. I don't regret it. All four have degrees and are doing fine today. People like us would be royally screwed if student loans were forgiven and free college for everyone would bankrupt this almost broke country. Talk about inflation if the US printed money to finance this foolishness. I have a hundred trillion dollar (yes, trillion) Zimbabwe note that I bought online and keep handy to show where we would be headed if any of these brain-dead Democrats were to get in full control. When that note was issued, it was officially worth forty cents US.

It IS available to everyone. You serve in the military, you put your part of the money in, you get college money. And if you are a Texas Vet, once you use up your GI Bill benefit, you can apply for the Hazelwood Act, which does not have a time limit on it.

I earned my G.I. Bill by working my arse off at half the pay I could have made in the civilian world. I took a big pay-cut joining the Army, and accepted the fact that I could die before getting seeing $1 of that benefit. Not everyone needs a college degree to make a decent living. College degrees are mostly overrated these days. After WWII it was understandably the path to good jobs, but today they're as common as popcorn at the movie theater. America has too many institutions of "higher learning" spitting out worthless leftist grads bound for a 12 year restaurant gig, and way too few vocational schools putting out tradesmen and craftsmen answering the real needs of a society.

1: Human wisdom says that if everybody is somebody then no one is anybody. 2) I remember reading in my undergraduate days that one of the causes for the rise of fascism in its various forms and color, is to have a large cohort of well qualified people who cannot obtain a job commensurate with their academic qualifications. They will all turn against the society which duped them into wasting their time, effort and energies in vain.

Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play. Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer´s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.

With some K-12 school districts and administrators across America panicking and attempting to get ahead of any ‘outbreak’ of the coronavirus, more districts are opting for students to stay home. I’d be willing to bet that most students thoroughly enjoy this. It’s kind of like having ‘snow days.’ However, what might be in store for these students could be far more important than a snow day, as it’s possible that the virus may herald a revolutionary shift in education. Throughout the years, American homeschooling and online K-12 education has become far more popular and realistic than ‘brick and mortar’ public schools want to admit.

In recent years, discussion about homelessness has been circumscribed around a set of premises acceptable to progressive opinion. The homeless were thrown onto the streets, we’re told, because of rising rents, heartless landlords, and a lack of economic opportunity. Activists, journalists, and political leaders have perpetuated this line of reasoning and, following it to its conclusion, have proposed investing billions in subsidized housing to solve homelessness. But new data are undermining this narrative. As residents of West Coast cities witness the disorder associated with homeless encampments, they have found it harder to accept the progressive consensus—especially in the context of the coronavirus epidemic, which has all Americans worried about contagion.
