We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Honestly, when I see poor people with iPhones, I begin to lose faith in this country.
If you're poor, you don't need a damn smart phone. I'm sick of seeing people using food stamps and talking or texting on a damn iPhone.
Get a damn go phone if you're poor. The priorities of people on welfare in the south are backwards. Seeing nice vehicles in section 8 housing is pathetic. Your vehicle should not cost 50% of your property value, much less surpass it.
I was waiting for someone to post this, always a great laugh.
I've yet to see a single "poor" person that has a iPhone and has food assistance or have A super nice car. And I know a lot of people that are on it and I used to work as cashier at a grocery store. It's just a load of crap.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
But but there's that one guy... And he represents thousands of others
Even if he did have an iPhone, he would have no way to pay for the bills on it.
People on welfare don't make that much money off of it, and certainly not enough to pay for the data plans required for an iPhone. The only way you will see a person on welfare or assistance of any kind with an iPhone is if that person is doing a lot of shady business on the side and are scumbags anyways.
But I bet they have some of that Obama money...
lazy ass democrats better not get too greedy or their won't be anything left for them to suck dry.
as football fans we sure as hell would not want our coaches, players or athletic programs run with a socialist ideology...why? because it eliminates drive and excellence...hell even a moderate will tell you that.
Do you live in the south?
I did for over ten years.
Lived a bit in Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, and Kentucky. And my father still lives in Tennessee.
No it doesn't.
Look at many countries across the world who have much more social assistance and are in much better financial situations than the US are in currently.
Republicans just make up these myths that are so far from reality. There are many case studies that you can look at that directly contradicts what you are saying right now.

It makes him feel better that he can blame someone.
Also let me clarify, I'm not advocating for the US to become a more socialist country. Their politics have gotten them to the top so they obviously know what they are doing; but to assert that some forms of social assistance creates a lower, lazy class of people is just 100% false.
I live in a country you guys probably consider socialist, and no one sits at some shitty home, happy to sit on the couch, and collect welfare cheques. It's not enough money to have a legit life, and no one wants to be poor. There are obviously some crazies who probably do just collect welfare and do nothing; but the vast majority are fighting tooth and nail to make something of themselves.

Also it's funny it seems like the main reason you Republicans don't like Obama is because "he gives all those leeches money so they sit at home and take my money while not doing anything".
Do you realize actually how little of your money actually goes to these people?
Get to work? Why would I do that?
I'm just gonna kick back and have about six illegitimate children and collect $1800 per child, thanks Obama.
I work in a hospital people literally do this, And make about $60,000 a year.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Yeh man, Toronto to be exact.
I'm curious as to the math of how they make $60,000/year. Would you mind explaining that to me, and showing where that $60,000 comes from?
Very nice. I'm a dual citizen, and my mom's entire family is in Vancouver. Going there for Christmas and I can't wait. I haven't been to Canada in about a year, and after living in the Midwest, I'm dying for a break.
Pshhhhh....if you don't already know, then you probably aren't smart enough to understand.
This made me laugh, then made me sad when I thought about how many people on this board have actually used this response seriously against my questions.
Vancouver is awesome. Halifax, Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto are all awesome cities in their own right.
The degree to which I have been missing a real Chinatown can't honesty be put into words.
A lot of it. You should try working in public schools. I work in Gwinnett County, Ga, a huge public school system in the metro-Atlanta area. In 2011, we had 162,000 kids enrolled, and 53% were on free- or reduced-price lunch. Guess who pays for that?
Now ... I'm OK with that, until I look up in my classroom and see some of these same kids with iPhones, Blackberries and Beats head phones. It's sickening. I have a two kids in daycare. Costs me about $1,300/month. Yet I watch many people drag their kids into these facilities with iPhone and Gucci purse in hand, while their kids go to school for free.
If you want to know where society is going, step inside a public school. It's not a pretty picture.
