    Time To School The Left

    "Ker-SNAP!" The sound you might hear as Rule-of-law folks everywhere reach their breaking point.

    A point in which all manner of civility is thrown out the window, and people defending what is left of a once-great nation feel the need to lash out.  A breaking point that is regularly exacerbated through such 'government giveaways' as this:

    "The free government cell phone program is growing rapidly. The program has grown from 2008 expenditures of $823 million to over $2.2 billion in 2012, helping out between 15-20 million people.

    Much to our surprise, there are no regulations that prohibit undocumented immigrants from getting these phones. In fact, based on our research we assume many undocumented immigrants are already using the free government cell phone program to help in landing jobs, to keep in touch with doctors and other medical professionals, to stay in touch with their family, and to reach 911 in emergency situations."

    Gosh how generous, and with a bonus
    "before long you can start talking on your free cell phone, compliments of the United States government."
    That would be "compliments of the people who pay taxes" anyhow.  

    But wait, there's MORE!

    Below the fold ~

    Taxpayers, as noted in the Michigan State Constitution, are responsible for providing "monies to maintain:
    "§ 4 Higher education institutions; appropriations, accounting, public sessions of boards.

    Sec. 4.

    The legislature shall appropriate moneys to maintain the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Eastern Michigan University, Michigan College of Science and Technology, Central Michigan University, Northern Michigan University, Western Michigan University, Ferris Institute, Grand Valley State College, by whatever names such institutions may hereafter be known, and other institutions of higher education established by law. The legislature shall be given an annual accounting of all income and expenditures by each of these educational institutions. Formal sessions of governing boards of such institutions shall be open to the public.

    History: Const. 1963, Art. VIII, § 4, Eff. Jan. 1, 1964
    Former Constitution: See Const. 1908, Art. XI, § 10."

    But "maintain" is an open ended task.

    The level of maintenance is not quantified in ANY WAY.

    Its time to stop playing games with the leftist controlled institutions such as U-M, and redirect their energies with more conservative fiscal controls.  Especially when taxpayers are burdened with such abuses as this:

    "The University of Michigan on Thursday decided to let immigrants living in the country illegally pay lower, in-state tuition, a victory for activists who said one of the nation's most prestigious schools is financially out of reach for high school graduates living in the state without legal permission."
    OK Fine.

    Send em $100 a year.

    Maintain a desk.  Maintain a Window, a painted rock with Sparty's likeness defaced, a service vehicle, etc. But get out of the business of funding it to the tune of $300,000,000.00 taxpayer Monies. It is neither required nor does it serve the LEGAL resident citizens of the state to reward lawbreaking with a Michigan Taxpayer subsidized higher education.

    How about it REPUBLICAN controlled legislature?

    Do you expect the "Conservatives" in Lansing to actually be Fiscally Conservative?
