I am NOT a Democrat, first off. Second, isn't the "I'm not going to do it if you don't do it first" mentality pretty juvenile? If Republicans want a pres and majority in 2016, they have to change peoples' perception, especially the young people. It is hard to get someones vote when you will take away something like Pell Grants if they cant see the wisdom in such a move.Quote:
Well, that's a nice sentiment, but I haven't heard the dems mention anything they were willing to bring to the table. Can you give some specific examples?
I am a conservative and my hope was with the beginning of this thread was to see if other conservatives could see the same things I do. Better to be working hand in hand with your fellow Americans than be the spoiled child crying in the sinking boat. This thread has not given me much hope.
That's a good statement but did you see what going to college costs these days?
I too paid my way through college useing pell grants ,Hardees and student loans.
It is becoming extremely difficult for kids to be going to college unless you have parents that have money.
Who the hell has money to be sticking away. I certainly don't.
Come on be more realistic.
Pell Grants can be worked in to a student's financial aid package by having them pay back by doing community service in his/her field for example after graduation.
My kids certainly aren't sticking there damn hands out but I'm not rich either.
Straight A students so hopefully acedemic scolarships or athletic maybe.
Very poor choice of words poster. Very poor.
The previous poster has stated in the past that they didn't want kids and seemed to be against helping kids or people with kids. Has made comments like, "you bred it, you pay for it." that's one that sticks in my mind.
