RE: No more Pell grants??

In TN, the State pays for any TN resident to go to college. The program started this year. They just need a 3.0 to get the scholarship. The scholarship program is funded by PowerBall.

That may be one of the reasons why the Federal Government is reducing aid for college.

Hey 3k for getting a 3.0 gpa is great. Glad to hear your lottery is doing something worthwhile. The illinois lottery is supposed to go to our education fund, but our inner city schools never have any money. The ridiculous property taxes pay the school budgets in the suburbs. Nobody wins.

First the lefties tried to convince everyone that Bush was hiding Bin Laden just for an "October surprise", to secure an election win. Now they're trying to convince everyone that Bush wants to start a draft when the only two bills start a draft were introduced by Democrats! Their conspiracy theories about: "black box" voting fraud; a missle, not a plane, hitting the Pentagon, Bush allowing the Bin Laden's to leave the US before flights resumed after 9/11, etc. just show what fools they are.
