    Default Obama Wants to Make Community College Free for ‘Those Willing to Work for It’

    Looks like our taxes will be going up again.


    Obama Wants to Make Community College Free for ‘Those Willing to Work for It’ | KTLA


    Free education “for those willing to work for it.”

    That’s what President Obama said he would like to see in an announcement the White House posted to Facebook and Vine on Thursday.

    He’s proposing to make the first two years of community college free.

    “Everyone understands that education is the key to success for our kids in the 21st century, but what we also understand is that it’s not just for kids. We also have to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages and better benefits,” the president said.

    It’s unclear exactly how such a proposal would be funded, but it would require a partnership between the federal government and states, which would have the option to participate.

    The program will be modeled after one in Tennessee, in which the state covers the cost for students that’s not already covered by grants and scholarships.

    The proposal would require legislation.

    That could be tough now that Republicans control both the House and Senate.

    The president made the announcement from Air Force One as he left Detroit on his way to Tennessee and Arizona, on a tour where he is previewing some highlights of his State of the Union Address.

    More details about the president’s proposal will be announced on Friday in Tennessee when he addresses the state’s education reform.

    To the recipients, they hear the word free.
    To the productive class, we realize that facilities, faculties, books, etc. cost someone dearly and this will be anything but free.

    What better way to herd possible "indoctrinees" to the trough?

    Those who apply and actually have the means to pay, and have a desire to be productive, will quickly be weeded out, and those sheeple that want only to serve the regime will be elevated through the "education" system to that end... all at taxpayer expense.

    Didn't Obama go to college for free (Affirmative Action)?

    I want to know why these elite assholes think that to be successful you have to be college educated? Half of these bums don't pick a curriculum that will yield them a life time of higher employment. How many folks do you know with a degree in "general studies" or "psychology" are employed according to their educational back ground?

    Here the trade schools are already free. Auto mechanics, welding and fabrication, dental hygienists, etc, etc, and they like can provide enough education for a decent living depending on how driven one is.

    The nation will always need garbage men, etc.

    Oh yea, WTF is he doing flying around the country now? I guess that is better than making more of a mess than there already is in DC.

    He's the perfect example of what more free stuff like produces. He's never produced a thing in his life and today he's the greatest leach our nation has ever funded.

He needs to be flying around in that damn plane like I need another thumb Everywhere he goes he fucks up everyone's life, fucks up the traffic and just basically makes a mess out of everything he touches, not to mention wasting millions of dollars for NOTHING!!!! He does it just to rub our faces in it.

    The world is gong to hell in a hand basket and he is flying around in that God Damned airplane probably looking for a Golf course that he hasn't played at yet. Might be hard for him to find one though... Fuck, I hate what this asshat had done to our country....

    Definition of "Work for it".........

    "Students would qualify if they attend at least half-time, maintain a 2.5 GPA and make progress toward completing a degree or certificate program. Participating schools would have to meet certain academic requirements".


    Is it true breakfast and lunch is included?.....With that work load, there should be plenty of time for community service.

    Another money hole.

    I've posted before about my experience in Oxnard when my then girlfriend attended OCC.

    We had to wait in the financial aid office for someone who spoke english...while the homies gave us glaring looks.
    They did NOT like that little white blonde chick trying to get their cheese!

    CC is a career for many on the dole, this is really nothing new, just a different way to spread the butter.

    We ended up having to pay for her schooling, naturally, and I sat in on a few of her classes as a guest. (Until I got banned for "debating" a total disgrace of a human libiot teacher she had for a social class)

    There were 2 types of Hispanics that I could tell. (Hispanics made up the overwhelming majority of the student body by my count)

    The first type were young, typical students who were geared toward learning and continuing school.
    The second type were straight up Cholo "Van Wilders", who used the system for income. They drove slammed Hondas with wide wheels, boomer stereos, and Mexican flags everywhere. They averaged about 25-30 YO, older than the "real" students. In the classroom many were student aid types, And GREATLY influenced the younger students towards a liberal ideal as far as Gov. cheese and the evil Republicans.

    It was 1994 and somewhat volatile since prop 187 had just passed and the GOP had taken the hill in a massive sweep.

    Being a white boy from Alaska this was all a shock to me at the time, I couldn't believe how everyone was afraid to say anything...which led to my removal from that classroom that day!

    My point is that, coming from Ovomit this is nothing more than pandering to his base yet again, while simply finding a "valid" way to increase the cash cow and basking at the podium while doing it.

    You can bet your ass that NOTHING will change as far as the demographic that may benefit from this...it certainly WON'T be "Joe White Middle Class's" kids...

    Face it, WE are funding the aggressive advancement of suicide by PC.

    I know for a fact that there's at least seven of the 57 states he mentioned that he has yet to vacation at.

    I am wondering when all this racial pandering to the blacks and the latinos will be enough? Or if it ever will? Shall I just give up everything I own and move into a nice cardboard box?

    Affirmative Action, quotas in large companies and ESPECIALLY in the government, municipal, county, state, and federal.

    I break the law often. My name is Paul, and I.... am a speeder. Got an 80 in a 70 and paid it in Monroe, LA. Back then it was 65% black. The ONLY people in the office that were employed by the government were black. And oddly enough, all in line to pay a fine were white. Got a another in Mississippi... over 90 F**kin' instant on... Two whites and 10 or so blacks in the Vicksburg office. Seems when they take over a city by population, they vote in black Democrats, they take over, and the place goes to shit.

    Anyway, back to my point....

    I live near Tallulah, LA, 75% black. One afternoon on my way to the JD dealership on a parts run. I met a funeral procession, and the polite thing to do (in the south anyway) is to pull over on the side until at least the immediate family has passed. I was near an LP gas distribution point, so I pulled in their parking lot and under a tree. It was a black funeral and traveling slower than I have ever seen one, about 30 mph tops. First was a police car, then a white H2 Hummer stretched to 30'+, then the normal limo, hearse, then the rest of the procession. I've never seen so many high dollar cars.... Mercedes', Cadillacs, BMWs, Lincolns, Infinity, Lexus, Land Rover, even a Porsche.

    I was sitting in plane view, and everyone of these people were black. So what does this mean? To me, if you want it, you can get it. They CAN do it IF they want to.

    Time to stop the special treatment and put EVERY one on the even keel.

    Rant - off.
