    excuse me but your an adult and you should damn well know by now nothing is for free and that includes college! it costs a lot especially for a 4 year college. it is not free! there are tuition, fees, application, processing, sports fee, parking fee, health fee, books, room/board, etc etc. it is not free. it costs somebody! and college is getting pretty damn expensive!

    You are very wrong.. I have a son in his 2nd year of school. He pays for NOTHING out of pocket. Books and fees and tuition are all covered. If you go to a community college alot do not have parking fees. Ours does not. He does live at home. And who cares about sports fees. Watch the game on TV. He works part-time but that money goes for car insurance and payment.
    We paid NO processing fee or application fee. So if you are sitting around your home or apartment or cardboard box., you can get some education. If you are going to be sitting there anyways you might as well get some education.

    I think most can get a $5800 Pell grant, that does not get repaid and a 780.00 Ohio grant, that does not need repaid. You add this together and it pays for 2 semesters at college.. we have been offered to get low interests loans but he has declined them… I think 1 semester at our community college is 2795.00 no matter how many credit hours you take. so if you are careful you can do it

    i am on a pell grant right now. i know first hand about this. its not my first degree either. even with the pell grant “cheap” colleges are few and faaaar between. consider yourself lucky if you ever find a way to cover it without taking out loans or borrowing from anyone else. the point was this is not the solution as obama says it is to unemployment, border problems, and political corruption. what are we going to do with people with 10 degrees and 1,000,000 dollar in college loans to repay? what then? what happens if you don’t get a job after degree #2… obama says retrain??? training aint going to do jack shit if there aint a job!

    don’t we all get obama money? i mean there is so much change going on i just love it. obama is such a fresh breath of air because he has turned this country around and done so much. look at how transparent his government is and how he is shrinking government, growing small business, lowering taxes, protecting our borders… oh man what a guy… and oh yeah look at how he fought relentlessly getting us the unemployment extension… its july now right? yeah… all hail lord failure!

    Thats true, at least you could honestly say that your not a Dime richer,
    But another day wiser, and I have never heard of anybody being harmed by more wisdom.

    And the cost of getting this Wisdom and paying for it seems trivial,
    because the individual would have had a plan well before starting
    such an endeavor. "But then again, there are a few who would jump before looking, and there are a few who go by the old adage: If it ain’t free,its
    not for me !

    you are ignorant. do you not see a possible issue with a unemployed person going to get a 4 year degree? do you not know that we may already be in debt. do you know how much college costs? it’s not so insane to say hey wait a minute… is it really worth it… especially when a clown named obama is in office destroying our economy and free enterprise every chance he gets? it wont matter if you have 4 degrees as long as obama and the socialists are destroying us. if you don’t have a job – i guess you can get the degree so you can stare at it when you mount it on your wall because your the only one going to see it and whom it will matter to. gosh ignorant people. see guys this is why our country is a mess so many ignorant people.

    EB any type of training you do looks good on a resume. Even if you take some BS training coarse it look on your resume at least you are trying to better yourself. I am not sure how smart you are but LPN’s on in demand and it only take a year. Even if you are older, older woman and men are taking those. It would at least get you a desk job in a Dr. office or nursing home. You could go for free.

    That’s the link to the list for every state and how their rep’s. voted on the last extension vote. Doesn’t directly effect us expired people.
    Nelp sent it, in case you haven’t seen it. It also contains other percentages and things.

    Have you considered the WIA program? Let me know if
    you are considering it because it may pay for your gas
    going to and from whatever school you choose from the list.
    You may have to wait for the next Tier to qualify.

    HopefromCA- Well a hey, howdy to you!
    Awfully quite around here. Well, I asked the worksource people about school. They told me that one must first be actively receiving UI benefits to qualify. (I’ve no income since March). Except (recycling aluminum cans, and the occasional odd job).
    Which is ridiculous, because if one goes to school then I thought they didn’t qualify you as “seeking work”? Maybe you can explain it better. I knew someone that back in 1992 or so, their office for a major airline closed down in Seattle, and relocated. That person stayed and qualified for the “dislocated workers” program. They went back to school and got retrained, and gained new employment. And it was payed for by the work source office (UI office). I would actually love not to go back to work for someone in the construction trade. It is the lowest life forms one earth there. Good to here from you HOPE.:) Thank you for the suggestion.

    This was posted on another website: I found this comment in one of the Huff/Po articles, and thought it might help shed some light on who might be posting on this site.
    A friends daughter who is in college in Ca., told me recently she had been approached by a person from the GoP on campus to have her blog against the POTUS and whatever else they would ask her to blog negatively against. She did tell me that there was a list of many website/blogs that she would have to go to daily and blog about one topic or another that she would be getting info on via emails from people who will guide her through what to say and how to say it. She also told me that if she had done this, she would have to set up 15 different accounts on each website/blog to effectively add enough comments to drown out opposition. I know this girl, I watched her grow up for the past 9 years, I believe her."
