President Obama

President Barack Obama will announce his plan to make community college free for all students.

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will announce the plan at Pellissippi Community College in Knoxville on Friday.

The White House expects 9 million students to participate in the program -- if approved by a Republican-dominated Congress.

The program has a projected cost of $70 billion.

"With no details or information on the cost, this seems more like a talking point than a plan," said Cory Fritz, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.

The federal government would pay three quarters of the cost, at least initially, according to USA Today.

From USA Today:

The America's College Promise program would be available to traditional and non-traditional college students, she said, and would support those seeking the first two years of a bachelor's degree, an associate's degree, or even just job training.

Obama said a world-class education starts with children, but that adults need training, too. "It's not just for kids, we also have to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages, better benefits."

    I love this!

    It's already free. My son went to Atlanta Metropolitan College for an Associates in Accounting and didn't pay a dime. He even received money back after paying for classes and books with grant money. I'm assuming that grant money is going to stop and students will stop getting those extra dollars.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Seen this earlier, Great idea. people are lazy they are not gonna wanna do the 8 hours community service a day. go to school AND WORK
    Honestly it's a lot... buttttt hopefully people that truly want it will DO IT!

    Thats not free...your son was just able to qualify for more financial assistance than what his tuition was...depending on income everyone does not get enough assistance to cover everything. Your son just didnt have to come out of pocket but thats not free

  • OpinionHated

    Education should be free - it is in Barbados you can go all the way to St Mary's Girl School (equivalent of college)for free... why should only those who are financially able be afforded the right to be educated and thus earn more.... unfortunately when you give things away folks take it for granted so free education would be the equivalent of the EBT card - a bunch of lazy azz bishes got it and lose it cause they didn't go back to the office to recertify - duoh!!!

    my problem wasn't laziness, my problem was that I didn't have any financial common sense. took a long time to get some. a LONG TIME.

    @Missy,

    If they do it with an attitude, just be nice about it and wait until you're at home and call the manager to explain that you, A PAYING CUSTOMER, did not have a good experience and were treated rudely by the staff. They may give you a manafer's comp as a courtesy.

    But first, try Butta's approach.....use mine as a backup. :rofl:

  • sassyshe

    Its not loan forgiveness for us underpaid folks but its a step in the right direction. I think if this occurs more folks would go to community college causing 4 year schools to lower tuition in order to attract folks

    :smack: YT TRASH

    ST. PETERSBURG — John Jonchuck Jr. cradled his 5-year-old daughter, pressing her face to his chest, and walked to the edge of the bridge.

    He leaned over the railing, Tampa Bay looming 62 feet below early on a cold and windy Thursday morning.

    A police officer, gun drawn, yelled at him to stop.

    But Jonchuck let go, authorities said.

    The officer heard a scream and then a splash, the girl's body quickly disappearing into the dark moonlit waters.

    Jonchuck drove away, south on Interstate 275 and later into Manatee County.

    A search team soon found Phoebe Jonchuck's lifeless body. Jonchuck, 25, was arrested and faces a charge of first-degree murder, among others. He offered no motive, authorities said.

    Jonchuck had a record of domestic abuse complaints and showed signs recently of coming unraveled. Still, the case prompted an immediate change in policy by the state's child-welfare agency and stunned even seen-it-all law officers.

    "I've been doing this job for 29 years," St. Petersburg police Chief Tony Holloway said, "and I don't even know what was going through this guy's mind."

    Question - how much if a make-up artist for full face, without lashes (Ion like those things)? I know MAC is $50, but I don't really like their products that much, clog my pores (but could be cuz I don't wear it on the regular and my skin not use to it).

    I am trying to obtain their services for this formal next week, where they would come and give face to about 6 of us.

    @MissyJ,

    You are allowed a modicum of pettibess when it comes to food that you paid fah. Yes, be nice to the staff, but don't let them shirk you of any food rarions. If you wanna starve, you coulda did that on the screets. If you wanted veggies, you coulda ordered a veggie slider from that burger joint. They can't cut konas!

    I'm sure Crickett's son qualified for the Hope scholarship. If students maintain a certain GPA, 3.0 in my time-it has been since raised-, are residents of GA, and attend a public institution of higher learning, all tuition was included plus a stipend for books-irregardless (shout out to UFO :lol: ) of the parents' income.

  • kamadiva

    @UnShake - other avenues...definitely!! LOL

    I am running, but slacked off during the holidays and cold weather. I like running outside better than a tread, but I ain't got time catching nothing like Bronchitis (in my Sweet Brown voice)!!!

    I, too, have to research more about clean eating and juicing. I need to lose 15 and keep it off. But I got this love of food that won't let me go. I need FA and a 12 step program!

    ______________

    :fistbump:

    well you saw my before picture. neck was all swole up. :rofl: just keep on going and something will give. it has to.

    the worse part of losing weight is the ppl who cant wait to tell you about how fat you used to be. :rolleyes: its so rude.

  • http://youtu.be/dXBaJfVr9us MisTaken: HEAD SUPERVISOR OF CHILDREN’S CHURCH :champs:

    @MisTake,
    When you say juicing, like you just throw fresh or frozen fruit in a blender with some ice?
    _______________
    :hugs: i like the questions! I bought a juicer last year after i watched a documentary on a dude who did it for i think 90 days and lost 70 pounds and cleared up his health... i only did it (modified) for about 3 weeks... :rofl: but i must say i feel healthier. But yeah buy TONS of fruit a veggies and put it through the machine. But it is expensive because you have to buy a lot of fruit/veggies to get the juice. Today i have lemon, kale, apples, ginger root, carrots and cucumber. I only have kale because i ran out of spinach.
    for the green smoothie i do: kale/spinach, fresh banana,frozen fruit mix from store, water, steevia to sweeten and ground flax seed. i usually have a green smoothie every morning unless i make breakfast on the weekends or am traveling.

    @Kama,

    Chile whatchu say? Man, I will say this though......if you cut oit sugars, that can help you lose weight. I hav taken Man's advice, and he is right......I didn't miss it like I thought I would. And I still manage to stay full. I don't buy juice and I don't drink pop. I am really proud of myself.

    Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

    @Kama, I follow so may MUA on IG. There are some good ones that set up shop in beauty salons and some have studios like Latasha Wright- she used to work @ MAC in the mall. If you go into a department store, MAC and Bobbi Brown have the best color palettes that match brown skin tones.

    Yeah..sugar is my weakness, but only since I was pregnant with LilDiva. I could careless about something sweet before! One day at a time....one day at a time!

    @MisTake,

    For po folk, can they buy frozen fruit and veggies to juice? Can you make them into a smoothie as opposed to always juicing them? Do you stay full doing this?

    I will have issues if aftah I juice, my inna "Big Thickums" starts roaring. :nono:

  • Hair Lova Formerly Known As Dark Ceaser

    I love this. A lot of places education is free except here. Just like freakin health care!!

    @Taken I do t know what you can do for lower stomach but I follow Buffy The Body on FB I think it's called Bodynomics and she gives a lot of tips for the core. I'm going to pick up my Abolene and plastic wrap this weekend. I already got my waist band. Oh and also there is this mother and daughter team called Black Girls Excerise Too. Their work outs are good.

  • inter_loop

    If my spidey senses are functioning correctly then I decern that President Obama is setting government up to assist those who are willing to take more personal control of their own lives.

    Universal Health Care: If you stay healthy you'll never have much to pay. If there's an emergency, you won't be denied.

    Universal Community Collge: Learn as much as you can for free... Because rich whites, Asians, and Indians are paying for education that will automatically put them at an advantage. Quite frankly, McDonald's, the gas station, and maybe even Starbucks will one day be completely, or at least 75%, automated. So the jobs, well paying or otherwise, will be going to the educated thinkers....the makers of technology and the masters of data (scientific, mathematical, advertising, creative, media, et cetera).

    No more Haves and Have Nots

    @Shake.. try to do the 10 day green smoothie cleanse.... it has different stuff you can eat along with the smoothie. where as juicing (the strict way) :no: it is rough boss. You can do the frozen fruit for the smoothie. that is what i do. get them from wal-mart $9.99 a bag... mix it with water,spinach/kale and banana with the steevia and flax seeds..
    yea juicing is not a game... i was going to do it for 3 days ..straight juice.. i did it before for a week... but i had to eat something :rofl: had salads with it ...

  • Hair Lova Formerly Known As Dark Ceaser

    @Shake you can use frozen veggies to juice. But he'll the price of some of those frozen joints you might as well get em fresh

  • Unshakable

    @Kama,

    Babe, that's all any of us can do, you know? I did mine gradually....after Man gave me that advice, I stopped buying sweets. I already chew gum, so that took care of my sweet tooth, if you will. I just have to start exercising more and implement more fruits and veggies.
