And my state actually uses their lottery revenue for higher education. Hope grants, hope scholarships, Zell Miller scholarship, thanks to the pols actually sticking their promises. The tuition is quite reasonable too. The tuition is thousands less than room & board. I've told my 2 teens they will need a full scholarship or go to our local (very fine & highly rated) university & live at home.

Almost completely reversed. My family, on my mother's side, migrated from Kentucky. My grandfather had actually been a share cropper. (Shocker for most, white share croppers did exist!!) The two branches migrated separately to Detroit, the city of promise & prosperity. Now their descendants have already or considering a southern state for work. I live in the deep south now. It will sound awful, but I really hope the new migrants don't contaminate it.
It is a very sneaky thing that I have noticed happening more & more. I have a doctor who is very nice, caring, & got a job at a very large army hospital. She works there while her husband works at another very sensitive government location nearby. One day, out of the blue, she came to work in hijab! What can they do? She is a competent doctor. She is not active duty military & they did not have a specific policy against it (and if they did, it would probably be contested since this is a govt location). I still think she is very nice & competent but it is completely unnerving.
Whats even more wicked & vile is that they are ready to do it! If they vote no, they are evil, baby killin, dont care about people who are non white (raaaaccccits) republicans If they vote yes & it goes bad, which it will, they are evil old war mongering republicans who just want to kill people who are non white & muslims (raaaaaacits!) And Obama gets to stand there & vote Present!
There are a lot who think the dem party was still the party of their fathers. They could tell themselves pretty little lies like I may be personally against abortion but I don't have a right to tell someone else they have to be against it. The dems kept up the facade til 2012, that all they wanted was safe,legal & rare. In 2012, rare disappeared. They also really believed the hokum about the dems being the only people to care for the poor or about education. As time has gone on, people have seen the outcomes of all this "caring" in their own homes & neighborhoods. I really do think that it was 0bama & all his attacks on everything they hold dear, that finally started waking some up & push those over Who were teetering
Exactly! They should have been tossed long ago for giving scandal to believers (not that kind of scandal, the leading people astray kind). I converted to the Church in my 30s & I couldn't make myself do it if I wouldn't follow what it teaches. I have no idea why the self excommunicated stay & even sometimes call themselves devout!
I'm surprised the booing & rejection of God in the platform three times didn't ring a little bell. As a Catholic, I say it's about dang time & there should be a lot more!
