How much does the Clemson Life program cost? I think it's fantastic that this young man got into college and what a joy for him.
Now let me ask a simple question as I fight to find money to send my own kids to a community college, not being able to afford more. Is he going on SSI? If he is, that's my money too and he got a letter that my kids won't.
If his parents are footing the bill, more power to them!

Do y’all not have ANY editing going on at the Blaze??
This kind of stuff kills your credibility: “especially during a reason where shipping and decorating can take over”
Editing? Spell check? What are these liberal tools you mention!
They'll edit and proof read YOUR comment in a heartbeat!
And they've changed the title of this story three times in the last 20 minutes.
Ha, make that four times!
Trying to fine tune for click throughs, I suppose.
horns.........if you say something they don't like .......yep they edit
They're middle eastern[Semites;] like Arab/Israelis ]ha,ha that's a joke.
No need to get your panties in a bunch.
This is an interactive comment site.
If you simply point out an editing error they will fix it.
I don't know of many sites that actually read the comments, corrects the error, and also leaves the original up for everyone to see that they made a mistake.
Most will make the change and delete your prompting.
"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." - Elwood P. Dowd as played by Jimmy Stewart in the movie Harvey (1950).
That's a perfect gift for a democrat, it mirrors just how bitter, angry and empty they are.....
Spelling and Grammar checks are revisionism...we can't allow the original message of this story to be adulterated by going back to make sure its actually readable. It would be like burning the Constitution on a pyre made of babies and small-business owners.
Or perhaps they found out the people have figured out that the gospels of Mathew, Mark and Luke were written 70 years after Jesus and not by them.
They are frowning over the commercialization of Christmas, or maybe the fictitious 'War on Christmas' ?

You are wrong. In Texas, schools are funded based on enrollment. So yes, they do lose the money.

Who am I to judge? Someone with common sense who has seen the statistics on animal attacks and children. Almost every child death from an animal attack was from a pit bull or put bull mix.

The dog was running loose. That was the owners’ fault.
Also, people with pit bulls are bizzarely defensive of their dogs’ actions. They always claim their dogs are just sweet, nice and misunderstood. No, they are bred to fight and kill. Can’t blame the cops for your own irresponsibility.
And only horrible parents would have a pit bull in the house with toddlers.
No dog is born to kill. And any dog can be taught to fight by a human. I guess using your logic of "the dog was running loose" means its open season on any animal that gets out of its yard?? As for the parents; who are you to judge.
Spoken like a true t'sip! You mix a little bit of good sense with some BEVO sh!t! Yes, people are responsible for controlling their animals. That's where your logic ends and your fear mongering ignorance kicks in.
I guess using your logic of "the dog was running loose" the owners are not responsible for controlling their animals. At what point is it okay to shoot the dog? After he's ripped some fingers off? I have several animals, and mine have gotten out on occasion. However, if ANYTHING ever happened to them while they were out, I would feel personally responsible. But, that's because I believe in personal responsibility, not blaming everyone else.

I am disgusted to see this story on the Blaze.
THERE IS NO RISK OF DEFAULT unless the President refuses to follow the Constitution. There is PLENTY of tax revenue available to pay the debt service, so there is NO RISK of default.
I agree - STOP adopting the language of the left - doing so only perpetuates their agenda. Propaganda at its finest - aided and abetted by the writers of the Blaze. I expect it from the enemedia conglomerates of AP, and the other alphabet networks......
Why to you perpetuate your ignorance on the subject? It's not a matter of having the revenue to pay the bills, it's a matter of authority to pay the bills - per the Constitution.
Simple was droned in here during the emergence of the Tea Party . Guess the troll is still on that same search and destroy mission.

As the mother of boys, this is my opinion:
For heaven’s sake, can’t boys have ANYTHING of their own any more? Do we have to feminize everything?
Can you not comprehend the difference between elementary school children playing on a mixed-gender team, and pre-teen/teens playing on a mixed-gender team?
Uber-feminists and the wussification of the American culture now have forced an imbalance where 60 percent of college students are women. We are pushing men out of families, jobs, schools, etc.
Let’s value what MEN can bring to the culture, and stop making everything about the girls.
noun ( used with a singular verb )
the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics)
Condoms really are cheaper.

Obama can sign this treaty 10 times if he wishes. But there’s no way he’ll get 2/3 of the Senate to vote for it.
It is funny how the UN can't stop genocide, can't stop despots from building nukes or WMD's, can't make a country follow treaties or answer "resolutions", but we are afraid of a treaty that our man-child signs. The UN needs to remember what country they reside in, and who still has the guns (for now, I guess).
Were the required number of senators sign off on it they should all be recalled immediately if not impeached themselves.
To top off this power grab by the globalists will also cripple our allies like Israel from being able to obtain weaponry for self defense.
Of course the "senate" will confirm the u.n. arms treaty... It is controlled by the dimocrats... Plus, there are enough "rino" "senators", like mcCain who will vote to confirm it...
If you really think the treaty will be turned down by the "senate", I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn that you might be interested in buying...
2/3rds of the present senate...
Since when has that ever stopped the RAT from signing anything he chooses?
I believe it takes 2/3's to ratify a treaty, not a simple majority.
For all those interested....
But once it been signed they can keep bringing it back up for a vote FOREVER!
WE ARE SCREWED!

The school is 99 percent black. Anyone shocked by this?

A militant gay activist or a pedophiliac pervert. Great choices, NYC.
In fact, I have a lot of friends who own firearms, as I do. And I don't know a single person who has died from gun violence....or a gun accident for that matter. In fact, I can't even think of anyone I know that has committed suicide with a firearm.
But man, I know a few people who have been killed on motorcycles.
Thanks spot on. I'm so sick of self righteous sheep, if you do not like firearms do not own one but quit your futile attempt of keeping me from owning mine.
Love it! Great logic.
I agree with you Lakehart. AMEN God, Guts and Guns baby!
The nigger lives in a nigger area. Nuff said?

Uh, not all kids are alike. Some need different kinds of punishments.

And when will we expect American Indians to stand on their own two feet??
They can't. This is exactly why those fascist liberals were so eager to develop a welfare state It cripples society until it collapses.
They give them everything but without purpose, they ply their God given initiative with drugs, alcohol, food, and every kind of sex under the sun, until they and their children and then their children are destroyed.
"get on their own two feet".............................that is naive'.

Where were the parents in all of this? The parents of ANY of them … the victim, the perps, the other kids at the so-called party??
This is what happens to a society when the women become animals, just like the men. In the past, women have been responsible for holding men to a higher standard and keeping our society reasonable. Now, parents allow their daughters to dress, drink and act like sluts. These girls then put themselves in the position to be damaged permanently. It was clear from the testimony that the victim has put herself at such risk on other occasions.
I’m not saying the perps aren’t guilty. But reasonable, moral behavior would certainly protect girls from encountering these situations. And it’s up to parents to know whether their children are regularly drinking and acting like animals.
While I was growing up, my girlfriends and I had many male friends. We shared drinks and many dances in the small bar that had a great jukebox. If one of us had too much to drink, well, these guys would make sure we all got home SAFE!. Kids out having fun should know how to take care of each other. These young men were raised right. None of us were priviledged, our fathers worked hard and struggled financially. We did learn RESPECT for everyone at an early age....We carry that with us today and hopefully have passed that on to our children and grandchildren. The parents of these privilidged brats should hang their heads in shame...
I have talked to other parents of girls and they tell me that I should kneel down and kiss the ground and praise the lord that I only have boys. They tell me that girls are stark raving maniacs when they are teenagers and I believe it. Completely and totally out of control with sexual desires and drug addictions. Like animals in heat.
How intoxicated must a girl be before she can be given some of the blame for being raped?
How short must her skirt be before she can be blamed for having herself raped?
How much of a slut can a girl be before she is to be blamed for unwillingly having her private parts violated?
If you have the ability reason or a crumb of moral, it should tell you this: “As long as she does not harm anyone but herself, a girl may dress, drink and act in any way she wants”.
If at any time a perverted mad-man came to rape her, she should be allowed to suffer without having to hear all the crap coming from all those ignorant, narrow-minded, straight-laced dim-wits that are trying to put blame on her. That is a poor load of priggish people which, thru some kind of insane or divine impetus, manages to convince themselves that she was somehow an accomplice in committing her own rape.What??? How???
She may well have to struggle with the consequences of their crime for the rest of her life, while they get to forget all about it while they spend a year at a holiday camp.
How can one claim, in this case and all the more than 90 thousand cases just like it, that the punishment fits the crime?

What a bunch of wusses. Big deal. Knives are used in bakeries. Someone accidentally put one on the cake board before plopping down the cake. They were probably using the knife to loosen the cake from the edges of the pan, and put it down randomly.
Why do people make such a big deal out of nothing? And who were these alleged people who “left the party”? We are turning into a society of screaming, hysterical p*ssies.
