    The college scandal reminds that people have been greasing palms and leveraging relationships...forever.

    Whether slipping the trash guy $20 to take that old TV that he generally wouldn't, to buying the coach a drink to play your kid more.

    Nepotism? Yeah, it plays.
    Name cache? Yep it plays too.

    The college scandal, while disturbing and should lead to criminal charges and judgement, shouldn't lead anyone to holier than thou land.

    The Trump and Kushner crime families wholeheartedly agree. They spent millions to get their dumbass brats into Ivy League schools.

    You betcha. The brats are wealthy enough to bribe their kids’ way into elite schools.

    Well...it is fully understood that you prefer that palms go ungreased. To the lefty male, this represents a squandering of precious lubrication resources best reserved for his fellow dudes. o_O

    I believe they're called legacy admissions. Gifting.
    Innocuous shit like that.

    I see you have not taken my advice and sought professional help.

    You need not suffer like that. Get help.

    Same as it ever was. To be honest, I’m fine with legacies and/or preference shown for those who donate - so long as the applicant is at least in the general neighborhood of qualifying. We’ve allowed such targeted preference for affirmative action purposes for decades.

    However, if the kid ain’t even anywhere close...or if a direct bribe (rather than facility built or donation to the larger institution made), then they should be prosecuted every time.

    Such a genteel phrase - “legacy admissions.”

    It’s their legacy!

    But Trump Sr. and Kushner were not legacies. They got in through good old fashioned corruption.

    You realize this has nothing to do with Trump?

    Was he named ? No.

    But, being a retarded leftist & your serious mental illness can't keep Trump out of any of your thinking.

    It's always been this way from Sheriff/County Commissioners all the way to the top of DC and now revealed Colleges, anyone that post as SHOCKED but have lived sheltered lives.

    If your kid sucked at sports and you wanted him/her to be on starting team just take the coach golfing/fishing/hunting or whatever the coach enjoyed.

    I once had a Poker House and for a fist full of dollars donated for re-election to the Sheriff I never got raided..........

    You don’t get points for modifying your lame, repetitive drivel.

    A thread about people greasing their way into college has nothing to do with Trump?

    The real AOC would laugh in your face at such idiocy.

    You found a post about jerking off without lubricant funny?

    My sense of humor must not be as “refined” as yours. Explain why you found that funny.

    Legacy admissions and gifting = affirmative action for rich people.
