Single Mothers Advice: Where to Apply Online for Grants to Finance a Start-up Business

Single mothers usually encounter more financial difficulties than couples, as they need to juggle with paying all the bills, raising their kids, and taking care of themselves in the same time.

Pell Grant Jumpers Cost Colleges 1.2 Billion Dollars Last Year

With so many people needing financial assistance out there, here we are having people doing crap like this? Say it isn’t so. Unfortunately, it is. Yep, it looks like thousands of Michigan residents have scammed the local colleges by taking Pell Grant money, and not attending classes. I don’t know about you, but crap like this really upsets me. Do you realize how many people need financial assistance? Millions of people. Yet, we have imbecilices in our civilization who act like complete morons and make life more difficult for the rest of us.

What’s Happening To Pell Grants?

It seems democrats and republicans can never agree on anything these days. And when they do, it’s usually a bad decision either way. This rings true especially about the current assault on pell grants.

Consider this:

If we eliminate these grants right now, almost half of all African American students would lose their education. 40% of Hispanics would drop out…unable to pay for a college education.

Cutting Pell Grants Will Only Cause A Tidal Wave of Dropouts

Duh!…
