    Well, this is one show Felicity and family won't be watching any more. Too bad. However, there is a famous series she was in in which she played a corrupt judge. I remember thinking, "Well, that's playing against type." Nope.

    I don't want to sit here and defend the actions of the parents, or really anyone complicit in the matter, but I'm struggling to see the big impact of this?
    So a rich person gets their moron kids into a big school. So what? When the kid starts failling the classes, it's all zero sum. And don't give me that bs about how the Lori Loughlin's child took another kids' spot. It's not like USC was turning back kids in the 1 percentile, it was the fringe kids, who would have only made it based upon an admissions officer having a good lunch or not.

    see he is saying all those good deeds that te people did and one woman answers it is ok not a big deal we give u two gro shes and u get excite as is someone saves your life

    this one he says he gave a drunk soldier two gro shes to purchase what supposed to be a saver cross instead the cross was not a silver and not worth two groshes
    and it was a sale he thought the soldiers was happy that he was able to fool him
    but so how did he know that soldier was not happy that it saved his life.. because he buys not food but alcohol with tat money perhaps.
    so when we think we do charity work are we being fooled even by people who asking for the charity.. and those who asking do they really need the charity or so they think ?

    Haaah! What are the chances that the creepy looking Singer guy that arranged all of these bribes, is another greedy, corrupt jew... and the jewish community wonders why people think they are all a bunch of sleazy pigs, not to be trusted. Especially when you constantly hear in the media, about jew after jew ripping people off, again and again! Strange, you never hear the jewish community getting pissed off at one of their own, for ripping people off and then see them screaming in the streets, about how those disgusting jewish fraud artists need to be punished for hurting so many people! But as soon as anyone, says anything, to hurt a jewish persons precious delicate feelings, then all bets are offf and the the jewish community is quick to get up off their asses and scream bloody murder in the streets, that they are being unfairly targeted. No surprise that they only think about themselves and they cannot see past their own noses, considering we are talking about a bunch of people that decided to call themselves 'the chosen ones' and they would never dare to criticize one of their own, as they think that they are soooo much better than everyone else and untouchable. Seriously, how delusional and self absorbed do you have to be, to actually have the nerve to run around all the time, telling everyone that God told you that you are the chosen ones. (Of course if the jews said it happened, then it must be true... it's not as if a jew would ever tell a lie, right?)

    It happens in the UK too. I read an example the other day about Prince Edward.

    " Prince Edward the youngest son of the Queen of England got a place at Cambridge with results of EED: his 2 “E” results meant that he failed the exams. His place at Cambridge was assured on more basis than the fact that he was a son of the monarch. Typical offers for Cambridge applicants are AAA or AAB. Typical applicants sit 4 A level exams."

    Wait, what, rich people are bribing thier kids way into colleges! I mean it's only been happening since college's and higher learning was first implemented. The difference between white collar crime and blue collar crime is $$$$ plain and simple. Blue collar crime hurts a few people at a time, white collar crime destroys many people in one fell sweep. Except for murder, white collar criminals should 3 or 4 times the sentences they receive now.

    One of the problems with paying to get your kids into college by changing their SATs or just paying money is that the smartest people are not getting into college. This means that if your doctor only got into college because of bribery you are not getting a good doctor, for example.

    "Peter won several important tennis competitions so he would be a really good lawyer."
    Isn't that already some form of legal bribery. They're giving the college or university something (a new athlete for their team) that doesn't say anything about his relevant skills and in return, their kid is accepted.

    The admission scandal is just totally mind-blowing: why do you consider this a scandal? I mean, where is the scandal anyway? As far as I can see, foreign students are recruited by interview by local alumni, aren't they? No one check much except for the size of their purse. I once met a student about to go to study in an Ivy league university who was just unable to communicate in English, at all. I once met an Penn State alumni who was conducting the interviews and he had a very big part in the decision process although he was not a professor. On top of that the true scandal is admitting students based on their sport ability rather than their intellectual ability.

    @0:45 almost there...
    put it simply:
    1) look at poker cards, imagine parents pass on one card per suit:
    2) understand that "estate" translate to "patrimonio", which meant "due of the father":
    3) put that together with advantage-vs-handicap:
    the "advantage" in preventing the "money estate" (diamonds) to be dispersed,
    made some people having their "genetic estate" (hearts) poor in genetic diversity:
    4) then notice you have a couple of collaterals:
    "social estate" is family relations (spades),
    while "cultural estate" is the cultural milieu (clubs)
    with such an ontology up and running,
    it would be easy to categorize people and events...

    0:42 - for a fairly 'safe' comedy show, this is surprisingly close to arguing against the existence of the super-rich altogether. I approve.

    If you don’t have good SAT scores you can get an Associates at a Community college then you are able to apply at Universities. Private Universities I’m sure look at your transcripts but don’t quote me on that last part. I did bad on my ACT and SAT but went to a community college and did well then was automatically accepted at a well accredited University.

    Check your history -- Wharton is a prestigious school today. It was barely on the charts fifty years ago. And you guessed it. Then easy to buy your way into...
    Done well in school? In the Ivy league, students who graduate with honors or better are publicly released. Donald's transcripts? There IS no pubic record provided of how morons unable to make the mark do in their school. It was unnecessary to intimidate them to not release records. But that's something the fundamentally insecure do...Oh, who did that?
