No way to justify giving benefits to people that aren't even allowed to be here. When perry said he favored that, it was an admission he's controlled by walmart and the other illegal alien profiteers.

“Work hard at work worth doing.”

"Dewhurst says if Americans from Louisiana or Oklahoma or New Mexico aren't eligible for the lower tuition, it's not fair to give the break to non-citizens."
This IS the crux of the matter, and it is time for Americans to demand that this insane practice be arrested...equity...where is the equity for American students? Would our students be given the same consideration in a foreign country? Why do some continue to behave so recklessly towards Americans, while they continue to coddle invaders?

Me thinks Dewhurst is seeing the political writing on the wall.

I agree teddy giving illegal aliens something that all Americans aren't eligible for is unfair.

While this issue of illegal immigrants is an important issue, it is but a SMALL facet of the overall problem of American Higher Ed's college tuition CO$TS going through the roof HIGH, even as quality declines, and other nations whiz past us in match & sciences...

So...? Shall we just complain?--NO--


My petition appeals to both liberals AND conservatives, and IS a 'real'solution, since it needs only 150 signatures to become permanently archived in the Whitehouse website.

Here's my petition:

It's not just complaining, but rather a solution:

Try IT out for size, and see if it doesn't help get some restoration to balance the scales of justice.

If you AGREE, sign it & ask your friends to sign it.

If you DISAGREE, contact ME with your complaints --besides monitoring this board periodically, I DO post my real name and phone number online, and my real address is even in the petition which is searchable in Yahoo! or Google.

Let me know which it is -- agree or disagree re:

...were you replying to me?

While I do not like liberals any more than you, I will not limit my options here -- I signed my own petition, which uses a conservative solution to solve the mess -- Observe:

Liberals are happy cuz is helps them -- Conservatives are happy cuz we know that excess taxation (tuition in this case) & interference by the government in the Free Market is what bid up tuition to VERY high levels -- would you take a look at my 149 word petition here?

If you can get me to 150 signatures, it becomes permanently archived in the Whitehouse website like that LOSER with the Evolution petition, which is still there even after it expired -- if not, my petition gets deleted -- I have 54 an need 96 more -- can u check out out?

I suspect Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, who is doing the job Perry is paid to do, is just plain fed up with Rick Perry all the way around.

Who could blame him?
