It is not overriding the constitution when the 1st amendment was only meant to keep the federal government secular so the country didn't break up on religious grounds.

Official state religions did nothing to help or hurt the country so the 1st Congress made a deal with them to leave them alone.

Pell grants are not the only form of financial aid but they are tremendously successful at helping people become productive citizens. That is something we should all be supporting.
If Republicans want to cut financial aid, they should start with he billions we give Israel every year and they should stop warmongering. If it wasn't for Republicans, we would not be funneling billions to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq every year.

Actually YOU mentioned the word "colonies". I put up a link that said the colonies kept their religions well into statehood and the formation of the country and then you started with these stupid straw men because you knew I proved you dead wrong right from the start.

You were lied to in history class about the nation as a whole like I was, get over it and learn the real history of this country.

Where are your sources for the 1st amendment applying to state governments right away?

The only people who agree with you are historically illiterate Democrats who think "In God We Trust" was the first time the US government got involved with religion.

It is amazing how I have destroyed all of you fools in every argument or debate I engaged in on this thread, and yet you neanderthals still think you are smarter because of your straight up denial of irrefutable evidence and facts.

Pell grants are just one more welfare program......

there is no meaningful financial aid for middle class students, who are the victims of DemoKKKrat class warfare.....

The new report on economic growth in the fourth quarter Ė covering October, November, and December Ė was released this morning, and overall the figures arenít bad. Itís worth appreciating, however, why theyíre not even better.
The U.S. economy grew at a 3.2% annual pace in the fourth quarter, fueled by the biggest rise in consumer spending in three years and a snapback in business investment. Strong net exports also boosted growth, the Commerce Department said Thursday. Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast a 3.3% gain in gross domestic product.[Ö]
Consumer spending jumped 3.3% in the fourth quarter, the best performance since 2010. Business investment also rebounded - companies raised spending on equipment by 6.9% after a measly 0.2% increase in the third quarter.
Note, these preliminary figures, which will be revised twice more in the coming months, come on the heels of 4.1% GDP growth in the third quarter. The back-to-back growth was the best seen in the U.S. in two years.
Overall for the calendar year, the domestic economy grew at just 1.9%Ė down from 2.8% in 2012 Ė but this was largely the result of a sluggish start. The second half of 2013 saw growth of 3.65%, which will hopefully create some momentum for this year.
But itís important to recognize why the latest figures arenít even better.
The congressional Republicansí government shutdown, for example, shaved about 0.3% from the overall total. Thatís a difference, in other words, between 3.2% growth and 3.5% growth. Itís still not clear exactly why GOP lawmakers did this, or what they hoped to accomplish, but thereís evidence now that the gambit took a toll on the economy.
Whatís more, Daniel Gross noted that the report found that spending cuts from Washington shaved about one full percentage point from the GDP. What could have been the second strongest economic growth in the last five years was stunted by spending cuts demanded by congressional Republicans.
Don't talk to yourself lest you die laughing.

Jesse Jackson's son went to prison for stealing his constituents money. Best not to point fingers.
It is interesting to note that the Jesse Sharpton's and the Magic Negro's have absolutely no shame level that will shut them up.

Jesse baby was caught funneling money to his L.A. love child momma and it doesn't shut him up. His son and daughter-in-law go to prison for theft and it doesn't shut him up. Jesse baby is caught telling racist jokes and it doesn't shut him up.

Al Sharpton has been repeatedly caught fomenting racist activities, lying his blackazz off and he still plods along hurting people for money.

The Magic Negro blatantly lies repeatedly about Obamacare, his past and his true political bent and shows no shame whatsoever.

"You can't keep a good man down" has been perverted into "You can't keep a racist pig down".

If you had to watch your daughter starve to death because her ex-husband with kids from a longstanding relationship had determined this is what she wanted after moving on with his own life - and you were denied being given the chance to care for her even after begging for that chance - you might have a different outlook about Terri.
Her ex could have divorced her. But he thought her slow agonizing death was better for him.
Terri Schiavo was already dead Carol, but her body didn't know it. The autopsy showed that her brain had deteriorated to the point where there was no cognitive function left. She was in no pain and there was no "agonizing" death.
I just hope that if the same thing were to happen to me my family would do the right thing and let me go rather than have to linger in a vegetative state.

Actually, more into facts and reality than speculation. Just presenting facts and reality.
My only hope is this president is forced to resign sooner than later only because he's proven himself an incompetent president and a liar.
But Michelle coming right out and saying Obama's homeland was Kenya too should at least raise one hair on your uni-eyebrow.
You wouldn't know a fact if it bit you in the butt Carol. You prove this every time you post.

Thanks. It's not easy finding the right home at the right price in this still shaky market - at least here in Orlando. It's definitely a seller's market and makes negotiating along with home values a little more difficult. Many sellers won't not budge waiting for an investor to pay cash.
Also, the window to home buying in this present interest rate environment is closing according to news reports. Just adds to the stress of it being now or never.
A sellers market means that it's improved nitwit. One of the issues was that homeowners were stuck with homes that were devalued below what they owed. Home prices are going up and thatís not a sign of a fragile economy stupid, it's a sign that it's improving.

Actually, there are different ways of dealing with a recession. One way is to take less money out of the economy. The Democrats prefer to take more money out of the economy when the economy needs money.
You're an idiot.
Sure moron, keep pushing that bull crap.
FACT: Only banks chartered under the FDIC were affected by the CRA.
FACT: The originators of the toxic loans that sank the housing market were not chartered under the FDIC and weren't regulated in any way.
FACT: Republicans refused to regulate the mortgage backed securities and debt default swap markets.

What is true is that the demorats own the mortgage disaster 100%, it's been proved on her over and over.
No forced subprime mortgages to the unworthy, no crisis.
Deny it.
Sure moron, the GOP held both houses of Congress and the White House when the housing bubble ballooned beyond sustainability and had no oversight over mortgage brokers like Countrywide and Indy Mac and refused to regulate the markets in mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps. So Democrats are 100% responsible?
No one forced anyone to make unsafe loans halfwit. Those that did, did it on purpose to bundle them up and sell them at a profit before they went bad.

Which stimulus bill? The one that created no jobs? Or the one that is enriching the already rich?
Where';s the jobs Barry promised?
Where are you getting that doofus? The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act did produce a short-term recovery. We dropped 8.9 percent of GDP in Q4 2008. We lost 800,000 jobs in January 2009. We passed the stimulus. And then the next quarter we saw the biggest jobs improvement in 30 years.
Since then the GOP has blocked any more legislation that would actually put people back to work.
You're an idiot!
