Stop your liberal BS. That lie got old even before your messiah, Obama, started using it for every damned thing he's wasting our tax dollars on.

So because I disagree with you and told the truth I am a liberal Obama lover? You have never been so wrong. Go troll somewhere else. People like you are what give conservatives a bad name.

Each Day Our Masters Continue the Game,
Pushing Agenda with More of the Same,
Under Freedom of Information, There'll be Proof,
In Fifty Years They'll Come Out with the Truth,
'Course by Then No One Will Care,
Programmed Neurons Will be Unable to Dare
Put Together this Great Jigsaw Puzzle,
Kept Secret from Plebs by Media's Muzzle,
Important Stuff's Secret for Perpetuity,
All Under Guise of National Security,
This Ruling Oligarchy's So Much to Hide,
It's Only to the "Well-Tested" They Confide,
Yet for the Public, We're an Open Book,
So Feds and Agencies can Laugh and Look,
Nothing to be Hidden, Even Moments Delicious,
Trying to Complain Makes One Suspicious,
Yes, Only the Masters Can have a Ball,
Then Use National Security to Hide it All

Wonder why the rep from Mexico is coming to speak about this project in Little Rock and not here?

Also, can't find ANY info on the nonprofit corp providing a huge part if the funding. The Association for the Advancement of Mexican Education. Maybe somebody else could provide some info on them.

It only makes sense for a backwards university to set up shop in a backwards country.

Tut, tut, tut; you must be a libtard ASU grad. "You're" should have been "Your" in this case. Even if you'd gotten it right you'd still have been wrong, though. It's the dumbocrats who've been in control completely since 2006, two years before King Dumbobama swore himself in on the Koran.

Queretaro is one of the richest parts of Mexico. They want to establish a university in their state that provides an education primarily in English that has accreditation in the US. The quickest way to do that is to associate with a US university, use their curriculum, and piggyback on their accreditation. The richies in that area are providing the land, buildings, and funding. They chose ASU primarily because of their existing relationship with Beebe and other Arkansas politicians through the consulate in Little Rock.

Here is a list of other universities with branch campuses overseas. There are lots, but ASU will be the first in Arkansas.
