Re: “CBU’s Progressive DACA Plan

Well the priests have pretty much run through the local altar boy selection.

Re: “CBU’s Progressive DACA Plan

Opinion article? More like advertising and radical left-wing propaganda written by an immigration lawyer who makes a living off of immigrants and an ivory tower academic who teaches at Rhodes -- the same college that recently hired the "Whiteness is terror" professor Zandra Robinson who was in the process of being forced out of the University of Memphis for her crazy and blatantly racist tweets.

This program at CBU is not "progressive." Instead, it is deeply unfair to many other groups in Memphis who need and deserve scholarships. Some might even call CBU's behavior racist and unpatriotic. Many of my fellow CBU alums have been scratching our heads and wondering why CBU would devote should a huge proportion of their limited resources to one, narrow group who mostly isn't even in the country legally when there are soo many needy and deserving black, white, asian and other American citizens and legal residents.

Moreover, why create a program just for illegal/unauthorized Latinos? Why not also help other illegal/unauthorized immigrants groups? The only single, unifying trait that we can think of is that 95% of the illegal immigrants originating from Central and South America are Catholic. Whereas, only a small fraction of the indigenous U.S. blacks, whites, asians and other illegal immigrants in the Memphis area are Catholic. Funny how CBU never mentions that little fact when flogging this program to the public.

Re: “Pay the Band

How could you possibly write a story like this and leave out the photo credit of this Norman Seeff / Joni Mitchell photograph. Did you license? Ask permission to use?

Anyone who thinks it's ok to use a photo, any photo, without permission and /or without photo credit, please send us a postcard from Pluto.

Re: “The Debt Generation

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues
And you know it don't come easy
You don't have to shout or leap about
You can even play them easy

Forget about the past and all your sorrows
The future won't last
It will soon be your tomorrow

@Pakraut

If by "Wallace" you mean William Wallace, yeah. Also Thomas Paine or Roger Sherman.

I also think very highly of all 4 of my grandparents.

I miss them very much.

Re: “Texas Roadway Blues

Good thing you didn't have a large amount of cash. The highways are unsafe these days, what with all the highway robberies.

Re: “The Debt Generation

@Pakraut

You didn't answer the question I asked.

In any event, all four were inveterate racist, so, well, I get where your coming from...

Perhaps you, ERN, and smutty can go have fun.


BTW: I thought you moved away.

Re: “The Debt Generation

I agree with Ichabod and oldfart, the problem is Obama, student loan debt, immigration, abortion and readily available birth control.

Re: “The Debt Generation

Student loan debt exploded once they reigned back predatory credit card services. Unlike credit card debt, student loan debt is immutable. Even indentured servants were only required to serve a limited period of time. The student loan industry operates much like human traffickers.

Exatly ichabod. That's why we need real progressives and liberals in office to put a stop to what the corporate lords are doing.
