Rep. Ilhan Omar Calls For GI Bill To Be Given To All Americans, Even If They Didn’t Serve

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar is once again allowing her socialism to show through by joining the call for the GI Bill to apply to all Americans, whether they have served in the military or not. This is essentially another call for the government to pick up the tab for folks to go to college, once again proving the left does not understand how basic economics works.

Then, of course, there’s the fact that such a call diminishes the sacrifice and honor given to our armed forces, but that probably doesn’t bother Omar too much.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The story, written by Marine and Iraq veteran Will Fischer, who used the G.I. Bill’s benefits to pay for his college education, argues that the benefits of paying for veterans’ education have far outweighed the costs — and covering all Americans’ tuition would benefit not only those avoiding student debt but the economy as a whole.

But Omar was quickly criticized for advocating such a massive expansion.

“I’m a recipient of the GI Bill,” responded Chris Manning, a veteran who ran for Congress in New Mexico as a Libertarian in 2018. “The GI Bill was earned by agreeing to serve my country for six years and to put my life at risk as an infantryman in Afghanistan. It wasn’t something just given to me with nothing expected in return. Don’t cheapen our sacrifice w/ this comparison.”

Cam Edwards, a gun-rights activist, also made the point that veterans earn their G.I Bill benefits, in contrast with those who choose not to go into the military.

Omar doesn’t seem to understand that when you offer free college to folks, you’re not only creating a bubble that has to burst economically, you’re also flooding the job market with “qualified” individuals. There aren’t enough jobs to go around for everyone with a college degree.

Part of what kept that marketplace so well balanced was that people had to pay to receive their education. This meant that people had to work hard in order to achieve their goals. Those who weren’t motivated didn’t go to college and thus, there was less competition for work.

So much is wrong with this idea. Let’s hope it doesn’t get any further down the pipeline.

Save conservative media!

Watch: ‘BLM Protesters’ Try Burning ‘American Flag While Blocking Traffic’ In Los Angeles

Never cool!

Even though this flag burning took place in Los Angeles, the reason is due to the death of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd, of course, was basically choked unconscious by a cop with an apparent violent past. That being said, it’s not cool to burn Old Glory unless you’re a member of ISIS – which President Trump has pretty much eradicated. RIP, George.

It was “egregious, appalling and tragic,” McEnany continued. “He wants justice to be served.” She said that the video prompted Trump to “pick up the phone” while aboard Air Force One and ask the FBI to expedite its investigation.

There Is Evidence That Does NOT Support Criminal Charge of Cop In Floyd’s Death, Says County Prosecutor

The video of a Minnesota police officer with his knee on the neck of George Floyd obviously looks extremely brutal. And, at the same time, the officer has a history of complaints filed against him. The thing is, people jump to conclusions way too soon. We all know this. It was sad that Floyd died, that goes without saying. But we don’t know the whole story just yet. WATCH: NEW: Minnesota prosecutor says video showing George Floyd’s death is “terrible” but says there’s “other evidence that does not support a criminal charge” https://twitter.com/BNONews/status/1266136952874696709?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1266136952874696709&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-minnesota-county-prosecutor-says-there-is-other-evidence-that-does-not-support-a-criminal-charge-against-officer-in-george-floyds-death%2F Lest we forget… https://twitter.com/CrankyTRex/status/1266154825605099521?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1266154825605099521&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-minnesota-county-prosecutor-says-there-is-other-evidence-that-does-not-support-a-criminal-charge-against-officer-in-george-floyds-death%2F From New York Post: A man was shot dead outside a Minneapolis pawn shop Wednesday night as violent protests over the death of George Floyd rattled the city, authorities said. Minneapolis cops are investigating reports that the victim was a looter shot dead by an owner of the business, police department spokesman John Elder said at press briefing early Thursday. The man was found with a gunshot wound outside Cadillac Pawn and Jewelry on East Lake Street near Bloomington Avenue at about 9:25 p.m. local time, Elder said.
