    This is priceless. Maryland state lawmakers want committed juvies under the age of 21 to be eligible for free tuition at any public instituion in the state. Nice effort.

    Prison scholarships - one-way servitude.

    Well stealing a car never stopped someone from getting a scholarship. Hell, Rich Rodriguez signed a linebacker a year or two ago who was involved in an armed robbery at a Starbucks. He just laid low for a bit, and later that summer brought the kid in. Even Ohio State decided no linebacker was good enough to deal with that.

    If they were to pass this (and I hope they don't), they should make it a probation violation with mandatory jail time if the juvies screw up even once while on scholarship.
     
  9. I'm certain your average lower-middle class family will be delighted to have their daughters housed in coed dorms with these offender/scholars- while borrowing the thousands their kids will need for the privilege.

    Another fine social experiment. And politicians love feel-good measures, the requisite funding, taxation and wasteful bureaucracy (affirmative action hired life-timers with generous pensions who wouldn't last one week in the private sector).


    If anything good comes out of the economy tanking and the federal reserve dollar not being worth the paper it's printed on is crap like this is not going to be bankrolled.

    That's all they need to fucking do. These idiots make it difficult for students to learn in the public schools. Let the terrorists into college classrooms now. Shit. Nothing is ever earned, from inherited business to freeloading shit for bad people who don't deserve it. The only difference is the checkbook balance. The middle class who busts their ass? Fuck them. They're the working poor.

    Terrorists?
    You could have made your point a lot better without the hyperbole.
