We went to school the other day to pump kids and their parents to apply for those readily available student loans for college:

Michelle Obama told a group of high school students and parents on Wednesday not to let financial concerns stand in the way of a college education as she urged them to apply for federal student aid.

“Unfortunately, too many students don’t even bother to apply to college because they don’t think they’ll ever be able to afford it,” she added. “So they just walk away from the opportunity without getting any advice or seeking any support.”

Mrs. Obama, who attended Princeton and Harvard Law School, said she earned financial aid through a work-study program as a student, working in a day care center and an office, among other places.

I heard that she also painted houses during the summers, just like Bill O’Reilly and Big Guy did.

Butt that’s another story.

So kids - get those forms filled out before it’s too late! Heaven knows, what we really need to get the economy rolling are more college graduates flipping burgers. No wonder we need to raise the minimum wage: these people have 6 years worth of accumulated student loans to pay back!

And now that Lady M has solved the “financin’” part of getting a college degree, let’s address another concern that may hold some students back: the self-doubt that they’re not really smart enough to go to college. Although this is less of an issue now that we’ve replaced the 3 R’s with the 5 self-esteems, it’s still a concern for some students. Allow me to put that fear to rest once and for all by offering Exhibit A, Sheila Jackson Lee:

(Shelia Jackson Lee) earned a B.A. in political science from Yale University in 1972, followed by a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1975. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.

See kids: even you could represent the citizens of the United States as a post-modern enlightened despotic anti-constitutionalist – if only you get that college degree!

“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work. And I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.”

As Keith Koffler notes, Sheila – thanks to all that education – has found a way to streamline that whole “constitutional” republic thing:

Legislation doesn’t have to pass Congress anymore! IT JUST NEEDS TO BE APPROVED BY THE FULL EMPLOYMENT CAUCUS AND SENT STRAIGHT TO THE PRESIDENT.

And then we have Exhibit B, Maxine Waters, (BA Sociology, California State University, Los Angeles). Because her degree is in sociology, she’s adopted socialism as her cause de célèbre:

And while Maxine and Sheila both received grants to cover most of their college expenses, let the record reflect that they have both paid us back by dedicating their entire careers to public service. And still, they have somehow managed to end up as socialist millionaires in the process – if that’s not an excellent return on our investment I don’t know what is. And all because they went to college! On your dime! Is America a great country or what?

Butt back to Lady M’s advice to this generation’s college hopefuls: She’s not just encouraging them, she’s almost demanding that they take out loans to support the bloated higher education system:

“You don’t have to be the valedictorian. You don’t have to major in a certain subject. You don’t even have to be at the very bottom of the income ladder to receive the money,”

Gosh, didn’t the Democrats called that sort of thing “predatory lending” when Big Banks did it to encourage people to take out loans on homes that weren’t worth what they were borrowing? And they couldn’t afford to pay back?.

“Fill out those forms, fill them out!” Mrs. Obama exhorted. “Don’t leave money on the table.”

Hold that thought: “Don’t leave money on the table.” I believe it’s the Democrats’ battle cry for the midterms. Republicans better come up with their own call to arms if they hope to combat it.

“ For the preservation and protection of this great Republic, Lord, hear our prayer.”

Somehow I don’t think they’re praying for the same things we’re praying for.

I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?
