Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is taking heat for sharing an article calling for the G.I. Bill -- legislation that pays for American service members' higher education -- to apply to all U.S. citizens.
The story, written by Marine and Iraq veteran Will Fischer, who used the G.I. Bill's benefits to pay for his college education, argues that the benefits of paying for veterans' education have far outweighed the costs -- and covering all Americans' tuition would benefit not only those avoiding student debt but the economy as a whole.

Oh, Hell no!

That benefit should be reserved for those who earned it.

It isn't just some danged participation trophy for being in America.

This is what happens when you get a soldier that's been indoctrinated in government schools all his life.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

This woman is an idiot.

An absolute idiot.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

I wear a mask as an exercise in liberty and love for others.  To see it as an infringement of liberty is to entirely miss the point.  Be kind.

"Sometimes I think the Church would be better off if we would call a moratorium on activity for about six weeks and just wait on God to see what He is waiting to do for us. That's what they did before Pentecost."   - A. W. Tozer

Use the time God is giving us to seek His will and feel His presence.

Not from what I've read.  She just wants more stuff for people who didn't do anything to earn it.

...and giving away American citizenship to anyone who can walk across the border or apply for sanctuary.

Whether it’s devaluation of American citizenship or cheapening military service, it’s all in the Democrat’s wheelhouse.

Meaning more stuff for people like herself.
