My Grandchildren Cannot Afford Fulbright Scholarships
Anyone who wins a Fulbright-Hays scholarship probably has a head so filled with soul destroying progressive ideology that they have passed the point of ever being useful to America or anyone else. Also, when Paul Krugman has won an economics award and Barak Obama a peace accolade then defending the program by citing the number of Nobel Prize winners does not make much sense to me. Maybe I am wrong and the program is really good and worthwhile but that does not matter the people who give out the money are 14 trillion dollars in debt, not to mention the trillions more in unfunded liabilities. There are many things that would be good for me to have; however, I do not have the money for them and unlike the federal government I cannot borrow it from my unborn grandchildren. (This is a response to Charles Nuckolls post directly below. I tried unsuccessfully to put it up as a comment. I realize changes to the mechanics of the Blog were most likely necessary, still I find it harder to post anything than it used to be.)
