The University of North Carolina doesn’t like Iraq war veterans. Unless they pay full frieight, because hey, they’ve been living overseas for a few years.
The University of North Carolina denied an Army sergeant in-state tuition at its Pembroke branch even though she owns a home in the Tar Heel state and only moved away briefly because the military stationed her husband in Texas.
Hayleigh Perez, 26, hoped to use her G.I. Bill to attend the UNC’s Pembroke campus near Fort Bragg, but the young veteran — who served a 14-month tour in Iraq — was told she did not qualify as a state resident because she had been gone for about less than two years.
But there’s a move afoot at UNC to give illegal aliens the in-state tuition break.
Break the law, get subsidized college tuition. Serve your country, get lost.
Perez said the appeal process consisted of appearing before a 15-member panel at the school’s vice chancellor’s office, where her request was denied. She said she later learned that the denial was based on the fact that she had not paid income tax in North Carolina in the years in which she was in Iraq.
Tar and feathers seem appropriate.
It's gonna cost you another penny to mail a letter. You do still remember what a letter is, right?
"Forever" stamps will cost 46 cents starting on January 27, the agency said. Consumers can use those stamps to mail 1-ounce letters anywhere in the country. As the name implies, they are always valid, even after stamp prices rise.
The Postal Service will also offer a new, global Forever stamp starting next year, which customers can use to send letters anywhere in the world for a set price of $1.10.
Watch out for that "global" stamp, it's a huge price increase.
The global Forever stamp would boost the cost to mail a letter by 5 cents for most international destinations. The cost to send a letter to Canada or Mexico using a global Forever stamp would rise by 25 cents. The cost to mail a postcard also will go up by 1 cent to 33 cents.
The Americans With Disabilities Act, putting businesses out of business since 1990!, has claimed another “victory”.
A decades-old Sacramento, Calif. burger joint is shutting its doors for being out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act because the owner says he can’t afford to bring it up to code.
Ford’s Real Hamburgers has been slinging burgers, fries and shakes for years, but was hit hard in the recession. Now, KTXL-TV is reporting that a local attorney who makes his living filing ADA cases — many on his own behalf — is suing the restaurant — and Ford‘s can’t keep up.
“We scrimped and saved and cut down the staff. I’m down to six employees,” owner Hank Vereschzagin told KTXL.
Liberalism in a nutshell. One person is inconvenienced, so everyone must suffer.
So, we have a restaurant closing, employees losing their jobs, a man losing his livelihood, all because one man makes a living suing businesses. In what kind of reality is this possible. People have families to feed, and one man can put them all out of work? Can one law do this? The answer is apparently yes.
This is known as “fairness”.
