Tuition deal provokes outcry
This article ask a legimate question:
Could this bill displace thousands of legal citizens from college and burden taxpayers?
This is so outrageous. I have to ask myself...Is there something else going on here? What are these people thinking?
The bi-partisan, equal opportunity, fear mongering, race baiting hysteria that's taken over my home state in the past 10 years astounds me.
In part I can understand the origins because places like my hometown are almost exclusively hispanic now, and mostly "illegals." But the word almost
makes no sense any more. It's legal for them to get a driver's license, live here, work, pay taxes, shop at Wal-Mart, go to public school, reopen
failed main streets... but not get scholarships?
I mean if you want to deport them, deport them. What do I care? But if your economy relies on them (as every agricultural economy from California
produce to North Carolina tobacco does) quit being racist hypocrites.
It's the same damn farmers that hire them for next to nothing an hour that won't stop complaining about them "gettin' benefits."
Well either don't hire them or pay them something they can live on you inbred jackass.
As for schoolin' and learnin' the immigrants, I get so sick of the local yokels complaining hispanics can't speak english and
"head start" classes. What do you think the classes are for? Spanish?
And in a state that has (in my opinion) a public college system second to none where you can barely swing a dead cat without hitting a 20,000 plus
student campus accepting anyone with a C average and a social security number, who frailing cares if they try to match high school graduation rates to
University admissions? Nobody in NC is "displaced."

Like 20,000 students, but you had to drive 2 hours to see a black person.
"Illegals" are graduating High School now people. They can go to
college too. Didn't we have this conversation already in 1964?
So the great state of North Carolina wants to let 500 to 1,300 "illegals"
go to college a year across the vast network of colleges enrolling
hundreds and hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians that want an education and as many Floridians as can get here to ski?
Let 'em. We'll make more schools. It's what we do.
It's why we're not Mississippi. (No offense to Mississippi, but I hear it blows.)
People come here for our schools
, and industries come here for our people
. Man, red logic is killing the south. STOP IT!
