so if an athlete can get a free education why not all US citizens?
You can't ne a resident of the state without being a legal citizen first.
If you are unable to understand athletic scholarships, you are unable to understand a lot of things.
Strong athletic programs and teams bring in both money amd prestige to colleges.

What other country can I sneak into and be accepted for college ... must less given a discount?
Obama Bin Biden

United States

I am not confusing anything. The Republicans have not put forth one true conservative candidate for president in the last 100 years. Being a right wing religious fanatic and calling yourself a conservative does not make one a conservative. It just makes you a lying right wing religious fanatic.
Yes I have heard of Sarah Palin and if that is what the Republicans call conservative then they do not know the meaning of the word. If the Republicans are stupid enough to run that dim bulb for the White House they will surly hand the Presidency to the Democrats just like George W. did. After him nobody wanted to vote Republican. I blame George W. Bush for the fact that Obama is President now. The fact that McCain did not distance himself from Bush is the reason that the Democrats won. As for Scott Brown he like Obama just happened to benefit from the people's disgust with what is going on in Washington. I hope he can and does make a difference but most likely he is cut from the same mold as most politicians. At least his election sends a message to Washington though I think it will take more than this upset to show those in Washington that the people are tired of politics as usual.
Your confused. You know nothing about Sarah Palin, you are listening too much to your liberal tv shows like MSNBC.
Turn it off and tune in to talk radio.
The liberal left is STILL attacking Sarah Palin and her Family for what? Because they fear her BIG TIME.
Where is all the attacks on John Edwards? Who was RUNNING for POTUS? The guy cheated on his wife that has cancer and fathers a child with this slut? NOT ONE PEEP????????
You can't see the hypocricy? Sorry for you. Maybe one of these days you will wake up.
And, no McCain lost because he was a liberal idiot.
Open borders? To name one of the many things he wanted.
McCain was a RINO (Republican in Name Only).
The ONLY thing that kept McCAin in the race was Sarah Palin.
Whether you like her or not. That's the truth.

Oh, I see, so Scott Brown won the MOST liberal state in the COUNTRY because the liberals that voted for Obama are now disgusted with him? Wow, you truly are lost.

You have heard of the Tea Parties right? Its about the people, not politicians. I think 1.7 million people that marched on 9/12 is the real force here. You still seem to think that ALL politicians are the same.....but I think your wrong.
Are you saying if you ran for a position in politics, you would change your ways?
Are you saying that you would SELL your soul for money?
I sure hope not, and I don't believe alot of people would.
Except the Democrats. That's one corrupt group.

Few athletes get free educations, not ALL citizens are athletes. If everything were free the university would close
