So, how many of you out there are Bernie supporters?

Off topic. Home for jokes and other misc. stuff.
Keep it reasonable.

Only one DD- and she is quite conservative and works in Finance. Plus, under the same circumstance she would not cry, but attack with some very colorful language :D

Also, I hope everyone else sees the irony of people on a website whose primary purpose is the pursuit of a scholarship"free tuition" are complaining about a candidate who is pushing it :o

What an ignorant statement, but expected from someone who hasn't even gone through the NLI process. The girls will certainly disagree with you about the "free" part, a lot of hard work involved, and they earn it.


Not ignorant at all- they receive "free tuition" in return for their bility to play a "game" There are many that think that is wrong(I do not) I alos knew a lot of "work study" students that had to work on campus for their "free tuition" Perhaps you are the ignorant one? Don't get me wrong, I think sports are a wonderful thing and I believe that student athletes posses special talents-my daughter being one of them. The fact remains is that most on this site are in pursuit of a college education "tuition free" and I think it ironic that they mock the candiadate that is offering just that :D


You sound like Bernie and his ignorant drones by using the word "free". These scholarship D1 players earn every dime of their scholarships, absolutely nothing free about it. "Pay to play" D3 parents are so clueless, they will rip on D1 players and the D1 structure, yet they want to be taken as serious as them. :lol:



Pay to play- your understanding of how DIII works is so off. Most DII players are recruited and need to earn their playing time. Walk-ons rarely make the team.I did pay(around $250k), (but not to play)but for a first class education that has landed her a career in which she probably makes more than most of the posters on this site- so the ROI was pretty good :D and the sky is the limit. Are you saying that walk-ons and non-scholarship players at the DI and DII level are pay to play? As I said before, I think ALL student athletes work very hard and that scholarship athletes certainly do too. I think athletics are an important part of an education, As a matter of fact scholar-athletes make up a larger part of a DIII's student body than at a DI school(just saying) All I was doing was pointing out the obvious irony- but obviously it touched a nerve.

The "Free Education"" remark was a joke. My dd played in a program that was terrible until she and her recuriting class went there. By her Junior Year, her image was on a billboard in our area advertising the school. She was an "ambassador" for the school and was asked to give tours, speeches to alumni for financial support of the school ... All of that for the "free education" of which had to be divided between athletic and academic. Those academic awards have stiff requirements and so, if your grade falls while representing the school while on the road and not attending class, you lose them. That happens each year to the majority of players in the program. My dd was able to keep hers and graduated with honors. That program is now a national power and currently ranked #7 in the nation.

Per Bernie. Hell no. I believe that you bust ass and earn what you want. I believe that our society is in grave danger with the entitlements we give. We allow our children to have excuses for failure instead of reasons for success. BTW, while somewhat different, I coached Baseball in the former Soviet Union. While the philosophies of Socialism and Communism are different, the goal to have everyone be equal is not. Equal? What a pathetic concept!

I will have to say, that despite being totally against socialism and most of the programs and ideas he stands for, I do admire that he has been consitant in his message and thoughts. Certainlly misguided, but not wishy -washy

So, which Sanders' programs do you like?

Bernie said that if you are white, you don't know what poverty is. How dare he say that! When my dad came to my house last summer, he stopped right before my house, sat in his truck and started crying. I went to the truck and asked what was wrong. He said, "how did my son get to live in a house like this." I once lived in a 10 by 20 shed with no running water or electricity. 7 of us lived there. I could tell horror stories about poverty that few could match. My brother had an infected hand from a cut. It was swollen and had puss breaking out the bottom part of the hand. We thought that he might have to lose his hand. My dad went and bought a canister of salt. He held my brother with his legs and forced that hand into that salt. I'll never forget by brother screaming. It did save his hand. Again, how dare Sanders say that.

Maybe I'm wrong, but Sanders strikes me as that really annoying guy in class that you just wanted to tell to STFU.
