It's almost like they think they have to over-rule the desires of the Dumb, Unwashed, Illiterate Electorate. So our "Betters" can give us the government we're too stupid to know is good for us.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday he will add the DREAM Act, a controversial immigration measure, to a defense policy bill the Senate will take up next week.
The decision means the defense bill, which often passes with bipartisan support, will be home to two major, thorny political issues – the other being the repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
Let's 'splain it again to you, Harry - we DON'T want illegal aliens to get an education (at discount, state resident prices) in public colleges; that education is subsidized by taxes imposed for the benefit of Legal Americans.
Those high school graduates, however high their rank in the class, got it FREE - which they did NOT qualify for. Then, having sucked up public money for their K-12 education, they want a discounted education - as a RIGHT, not a privilege.
I don' thin' so.
