“Barack and Michelle Obama, show me the student loans.”…Citizen Wells

“Our student health insurance policy premium has been substantially increased due to changes required by federal regulations issued on March 16, 2012 under the Affordable Care Act.”…Guilford College student

“…and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them.”…Margaret Thatcher

Michelle Obama, who is married to the king of spending other people’s money, Barack Obama, will be community organizing at 2 NC colleges on Wednesday, September 19, 2012. She will promote voter registration through GottaVote.com at North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC and at East Carolina University in Greenville.

From My Fox 8, September 17, 2012.

“First Lady Michelle Obama plans to visit North Carolina on Wednesday for campaign events in Greenville and Durham.
WTVD reported she will speak at North Carolina Central University in the McLendon-McDougald Gymnasium at 1:40 p.m.

WTVD reports the event is free and open to the campus community. Tickets, which are required due to limited space, will be available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Tickets will be distributed to those with NCCU student IDs on Monday and Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the Alfonso Elder Student Union Building on the university’s campus.

The First Lady’s speech will reportedly focus on encouraging people to help organize their communities between now and November and promoting voter registration through GottaVote.com.

The First Lady will then speak at East Carolina University in Greenville in an event that is free and open to the public. Tickets are required.”


Michelle Obama spoke at UNCG on August 1, 2012.

“Because of this reform, our children can stay on our insurance until they’re 26 years old. (Applause.) So they don’t have to lose their health care when they graduate and they’re out there looking for a job, trying to build their lives.”

“This election, it’s a choice about whether our kids can attend college without a mountain of debt. Now, believe it or not, back when Barack and I were first starting out, and we were building our lives together, and we were so in love — (laughter) — we still are — (laughter and applause) — but our combined student loan bill each month was actually higher than our mortgage. Now, I know there are people out there who can relate to that. So, believe me, when it comes to student debt, Barack and I, we’ve been there. And that is why Barack doubled funding for Pell Grants and fought so hard to stop student loan interest rates from increasing. (Applause.) Because he knows how important it is for all of our young people to get the education they need for the jobs they deserve. “

“From Citizen Wells February 12, 2012.

“Amid chants of protest from about 100 students, the UNC Board of Governors this morning approved President Tom Ross’ proposal for tuition and
fee hikes over the next two years.

Ross’ plan would raise tuition by an average of 8.8 percent across the system and keeps increases below 10 percent on every campus.”

“Today’s vote caps months of intense debate over tuition, which the system has used in recent years to help make up for legislative cuts to its budget. The
hikes have forced more students to take on extra jobs to pay for school, or drop out altogether.”

“The state mandates that at least 25 percent of the money from the tuition dollars go toward financial aid for needy students. Some board members recently have spoken out about that requirement, saying it essentially calls for students, who themselves may be struggling, to subsidize the education of other students.””

“I have met and talked with many college students. Recently a UNCG student, who is struggling to support his family and attend school, confided in me that the recent tuition and health care increases (mandatory health care insurance almost doubled) could force him to leave school.”

“The cost of health insurance will climb from a range of $61 to $77 monthly to a range of $118 to $133 monthly, according to a memo sent from UNC President Tom Ross to the UNC Board of Governors. On an annual basis, most students will pay about $500 to $700 more in 2012-13, depending on the campus.”

“Mallette said the insurance increases are due to the health care usage of UNC system students during the past couple of years, plus federal regulations on preventive care and pharmacy services issued in March. The process is complicated, he said, by the new provisions of the Affordable Care Act.”


Barack and Michelle Obama, show me the student loans.

Now for some good news to counteract the spending of other people’s money position of Barack and Michelle Obama.

UNC Chapel Hill currently takes 38 % of tuition and gives it to “needy students.”

From The Daily Tarheel September 17, 2012.

“The UNC-system Board of Governors gave final approval to a new policy today that grants each university the flexibility to determine how much tuition revenue is allocated to need-based financial aid.

Schools were previously required to devote at least 25 percent of new tuition revenues to need-based financial aid.

But some board members raised concerns that schools were essentially subsidizing low-income students with middle-class families’ money and without their knowledge, prompting system President Thomas Ross to propose a 25 percent cap at last month’s meeting.

The board’s new policy includes neither a minimum nor a cap on the percentage of tuition revenue reserved for financial aid, and it also requires administrators to include the percentage in students’ tuition bills. Board member Louis Bissette explained the move as a compromise between the varying interests of state residents in an interview Thursday.

“We had a lot of comments from across the state — some people saying, ‘This is great that you use 25 percent,’” he said. “We had some people — single parents, parents who are struggling to pay tuition for their child — and they were saying, ‘You know, I’m struggling to make this payment, and you are taking 25 percent of it to give to someone else.’

“I think the board felt that because each campus has a different socioeconomic makeup of its student body, it would be best left to each campus to make that decision.””


A professor friend of mine asked me this morning what percentage of tuition I would allocate to needy students.

My answer: Zero.

I would lower the tuition for everyone.

Everyone should work to pay their tuition.

    What part of illegal in illegal DOJ activities does the administration NOT understand. Criminals do not follow the law, and Eric Holder is a criminal. I hope that a few people bother to pay attention to what is going on.


  2. Now if they would just issue an arrest warrant for Obama too….what we’ve been trying to do…..after all, it happened in his land, under his watch…..and since they’re all such good friends I’m sure nothing could happen if he’d just go “peacefully”….esp. since he’s admitted that all the “fuss” in the Middle East is due only to that leeettle film!


    Cairo, 18 Sep (AGI) – Egyptian prosecutors have opened proceedings against Coptic Egyptian citizens involved in the making of the Innocence of Muslims. Charges of “insulting the Islamic religion and its Prophet” and of “inciting sectarian conflict” are being pressed against seven US-resident Egyptians, namely Morris Sadek, Adel Riad, Nabil Bissada, Esmat Zaklama, Elia Bassily, Ihab Yaacoub and Jack Atallah. Prosecution is yet to set a trial date.

    (AP) — Egypt’s general prosecutor has issued arrest warrants for seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor and referred them to trial on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that has sparked riots across the Muslim world. […]

    A statement from the prosecutor on Tuesday says Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, an Egyptian Copt living in southern California and believed to be behind the film, is among those charged. So is Florida-based Pastor Terry Jones, who has said he was contacted by the filmmaker to promote the video.

  3. Has anyone heard anything about the trial that is supposed to be going on in Florida today regarding what is required to be a “natural born” citizen? The plaintive’s contention is that both parents have to be citizens or the child is not a natural born citizen. Since Soetoro/Obama openly claims his father to have been a citizen of another country, he is ineligible to be President.

  4. Romney is on the spot now for alleging that 47% of people who pay no income taxes are Obama supporters. Frankly, this is an insult and a source of anger for many retirees who no longer have taxable income but yet in no way support Obama. Romney had better fine tune his responses a little more carefully. At the least this thoughtlessness dampens enthusiasm.

    It is certainly true that there is a large segment of our population that support O because they are welfare and/or food stamp recipients, but to group everyone into that category is senseless and unfounded by Romney. This is too close to the election for this type of errors in judgment.

  5. Cabbyaz,
    Many retired people still pay income tax, as they live on 401k’s. People need to pay their fair share, and it’s now the majority of the people that aren’t paying.

  6. Pete,
    That is true re. many retirees who are drawing on IRA’s or 401k’s, but I am personally acquainted with clients who have had financial reverses, such as bad investments, and/or heavy medical expenses, as well as other large, legitimate itemized deductions, and they do NOT support Obama. Others who are still in business have suffered losses and consequently pay no income tax. Many of them do NOT support Obama and blame him for the severe downturn in the economy. My point is that Romney needs to be more circumspect in his responses, because the Dems will use this against him big time.

  7. From Drudge:


    It’s simple…those who still vote for Obama either are victims of the marxstream media lies, actually agree with policies that purposely kill millions of human lives, leave us vulnerable to our enemies, enjoy dividing the country between races, religions, and classes, break the laws and attempt to dissolve the Constitution, promote illegal immigration for primarily only one group rather than all who make up this “melting pot”, and they do this primarily because they want more from the government materialistically and with less effort on their part, or desire to have no conscience reminders like the Constitution and the natural law. Those who are just dyed in the wool democrats cannot in this day help but notice the severe difference between the traditional democratic arguments and the out right communist takeover by this regime’s policies. There is no excuse for them to remain supportive of this regime.

    It is sad that our welfare system (desired by Obama) demands no effort whatsoever for generations who are in the habit of just simply receiving funds. Why are there no expectations….like even just keeping free property in good condition or servicing the truly disabled??? So, with all these facts being easily witnessed today, the 47% who support this dispicable human being and his regime do appear to fall under Romney’s description of being too used to living off of this terrible government system we’ve built. Those who are receiving help due to Zero’s wreckovation of the economy I doubt are going to back him….unless they simply give up and give their spirit over to this immoral hack.

  8. Uh oh……

    Iran Writes Letter To U.N. Chief To Protest Mohammed Movie…

    Looks like time to find another landlord for these corrupt elitist wimps!

    I don’t think they really want to open up the question of the “prophet’s” authentic biography….they just may be confronted with the “holy” books themselves about which they will have no answer but see that said little video is merely a nutshell of what is actually written in their own books by their own “on the ground” authors about their “prophet’s” own proclivities.

  9. http://weaselzippers.us/2012/09/18/why-would-romney-say-obama-supporters-feel-entitled-to-free-stuff/

    Why Would Romney Say Obama Supporters Feel “Entitled” To Free Stuff?…
    Because it’s true.

  10. Drudge headlines:

    GALLUP confirms Romney

    Gallup poll shows Mitt Romney CLOSING to just one point behind Barack Obama

  11. Obama is always saying he is a Christian
