Oh, please. Really? Legally, yes but in no other way are they a charitable organization. Ohio State Athletics operating budget is $80 Million. that does not include the tens of millions more in "donations. " The coaches are multimillionaires. The ADs are multimillionaires. That's a weak excuse, at best.  (Sunday Apr 6 | post #34)

I am not. http://news.yahoo. com/unc-still-deal ing-3-years-academ ic-scandal-2355154 47--spt.html http://www.busines sweek.com/articles /2014-02-27/in-fak e-classes-scandal- unc-fails-its-athl etes-whistle-blowe r It's going on everywhere. Has been for years and years. If you don't believe it, you have blinders on. Just because the NCAA has a rule and requirements does not mean anyone is adhering to them. Wake up.  (Sunday Apr 6 | post #33)

Those scholarships don't cost the school much of anything. It's an extra chair in a classroom that's already there, being paid for by kids whose families ARE paying. It's an extra bed in a dorm that's being paid for by someone else. The scholarship is merely a way for the school to bind the player to the school and prevent them from leaving for another school. And they're NOT free to leave anytime and join a pro draft. Just ask Maurice Clarett. The NCAA saw to that. NCAA athletics is anything but "free market capitalism."  (Saturday Apr 5 | post #13)

They don't have to today. The ones who can't make the grades are put in special classes they couldn't fail if they tried. Let's just drop the sham that the majority of these kids are students. They're really semi-pro athletes playing a game that makes the schools billions of dollars. The schools made this about money by paying ADs and coaches millions while the kids get very little in terms of real compensation. Pay them. Pay them all; the swimmers, the cheerleaders, the baseball team, the fencing team, gymnasts, wrestlers, all of them.  (Saturday Apr 5 | post #12)

Moves forward?" An $18 Trillion federal debt, rapidly on its way to $21 Trillion by the end of barry's term? High unemployment with no solution in sight? Failing cities and states? Incompetent leadership? A central bank that's buying our own debt, creating the illusion of economic growth? A rapidly disappearing middle class? "Moves forward?" LMAO! If it weren't so sad, I'd agree that it was "damn funny stuff, man...damn funny stuff." Are you capable of offering a cogent response, or shall we just expect more name calling?  (Sunday Mar 30 | post #50)

Please elaborate. What does personal accountability and responsibility have to do with supply side economics? I can't wait to hear this one.  (Wednesday Mar 26 | post #20)

Bloomberg Poll: Obamacare 64% approve

Over 90% of that 64% still think they're going to get it for free. The barry soetoro propaganda machine keeps pumping out their lies. LMAO.  (Wednesday Mar 26 | post #79)

I will not "let it go." It's not the government's job to feed your kids. It's YOUR job; and when the government takes that responsibility from you, it creates an environment of helplessness and dependence on someone else to do what YOU should be doing. That is the liberal plan and it's destroyed this country from the inside out.  (Wednesday Mar 26 | post #15)

It's not the free lunch, per se. It's much, much bigger than that. It's a society that is becoming completely dependent on the government to do the most basic of things; feeding your own kids and being self-sufficient. The track we are on has dragged us into ruin. It can't be sustained. The "war on poverty" has failed miserably. It's way past time to wean people from the government teat.  (Mar 23, 2014 | post #4)

barry just keeps handing out the freebies. Of course, there's no cost to this program to a government that's $18 TRILLION in debt. I always thought it was the responsibility of parents to feed their children.  (Mar 22, 2014 | post #1)
