That's not and wasn't the point, but you knew that.
Carry on trying to avoid the reality of what a ruse this Family Values platform became for so many religious hypocrites, in and out of government.

Carry on pretending it is the 1980s because you are still buttblasted about Trumps election and you hate Christians.

Not quite, never been a Hillary supporter and know and admire many Christians,we just have a different definition of an upstanding,moral Christian.
That's why all you had was the hilarious move of throwing out the Trump and hates Christians cards.Rofl

Actually the Asians have a lawsuite against Harvard for being looked over. That said Chinese spies abound in the universities. The MIT campus looks like china town.

Well of course, they are just so amazing and superior, everything should belong to them now.

Hey, they work harder and make better grades than the majority of us whitefolks do.

Silver's company along with some parents photo-shopped their kids heads on athletic photos of other kids taken off the internet.

Along with the parents arrested many kids were just doxed at their schools.

RE: No Conscience
Not, just right, but all those serious jail time charges? Meh.

If they did sneak into a school, that only high achievers are allowed in. Then, they Must compete with them.
If they can't compete well with other high achievers, they are busted.

If they can, compete well with the high achievers?? Is it right to deny them?


Now, if someone is accepting money to give false grades, and rich ugly people are accepted as doctors, and teachers.. That could be bad.

I would consider removing these people who help 'friends' children into prestigious schools from their positions of authority. But I would certainly not throw someone in prison, for allowing someone to be accepted at a university, for a chance, to perform.

I was careful to, 'pass', in high school, so I would not have to spend extra years in school.
(I did good in math and science, some times.)

I some how passed my ACT, college entreentrance exam. Amen. It was that, or Vietnam, or Canada.

Then, I worked my darn butt off in university, like I never had brfore. I could take math and science courses. I got As, in those. (I got some Cs in a couple other subjects)
((I then later dropped out, for unrelated reasons))

Any way. I was grateful for the chance to 'change my ways' and perform in university.

Getting there, ain't the half of it.
You have to perform well, after you get there, to get anything from it.

"Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present, the defendants -- principally individuals whose high-school age children were applying to college -- conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children's admission to colleges and universities in the District of Massachusetts and elsewhere, including Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California, and the University of Southern California -- Los Angeles," the indictment said.


Who the Hell had to bribe the University of Texas to get their kid in?

They aren't even in the top 50.

"Huffman was arrested without incident on Tuesday and later released on a $250,000 bond, Reuters reports. Loughlin’s husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was also reportedly released on Tuesday on a $1 million bond. There’s an arrest warrant out for Loughlin, who is reportedly on a flight to LA. The three have yet to enter their respective pleas.

Hollywood actors, including Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, and a slew of chief executives are among 50 people charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating scam, according to court records unsealed in Boston Tuesday.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/hollywood-acto...d=61627873

Copied these earlier today and threw into my Drafts went back to Lori's Twitter after reading the huge bond amounts and her Twitter/Instagram went POOF!
Did they not know they were getting arrested today?
Silver plead guilty (today?) and some other guy too,so it's a bit confusing seeing arrests on the same day.

RE: No Conscience
"Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli was also implicated, and was arrested early on Tuesday morning. Huffman was also arrested on Tuesday, and TMZ reported that she was arrested by seven armed FBI agents" ???


Her husband, William H. Macy, has not been charged in connection to the case.


"Loughlin has not yet been arrested because she is out of the country, according to E! News. She was reportedly ordered to return to the United States to turn herself in on Wednesday morning."

Huffman is accused of spending $15,000 on an organization that allegedly helped her daughter cheat on her SATs. Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team — even though neither daughter rowed crew.

All three were recorded by the FBI on phone calls discussing their plans to alter or lie about their children’s applications. Much of the investigation revolved around a man named William Rick Singer, who ran a for-profit college counseling program, and according to federal prosecutors told employees “who we are … what we do is we help the wealthiest families in the U.S. get their kids into school.”

RE: No Conscience
What federal law(s) specifically, are these people being accused of violating?

Are the people accepting the bribes being charged?

Have they bribed public officials?

If I slip a swimming instructor $100 to get my kid into the already full July class, have I violated the law?

Just curious. Certainly not defending the bribery.

That's a good question. I don't know if this is the case, but sometimes the law is written to punish conspiracy to do something as much if not more than actually doing it....

Charles Kushner pledged 2.5 million to Harvard, both sons got in,Jared's acceptance to the surprise of his High School teachers.

The Story Behind Jared Kushner’s Curious Acceptance Into Harvard

ProPublica editor Daniel Golden wrote a book a decade ago about how the rich buy their children access to elite colleges. One student he covered is now poised to become one of the most powerful figures in the country"

by Daniel Golden Nov. 18, 2016, 2 p.m. EST

Snip:


"My Kushner discoveries were an offshoot of my research for a chapter on Harvard donors. Somebody had slipped me a document I had long coveted: the membership list of Harvard’s Committee on University Resources. The university wooed more than 400 of its biggest givers and most promising prospects by putting them on this committee and inviting them to campus periodically to be wined, dined, and subjected to lectures by eminent professors.

My idea was to figure out how many children of these corporate titans, oil barons, money managers, lawyers, high-tech consultants and old-money heirs had gone to Harvard. A disproportionate tally might suggest that the university eased its standards for the offspring of wealthy backers.

I began working through the list, poring over “Who’s Who in America” and Harvard class reunion reports for family information. Charles and Seryl Kushner were both on the committee. I had never heard of them, but their joint presence struck me as a sign that Harvard’s fundraising machine held the couple in especially fond regard"

Doesn't Obama's daughter go to Harvard?

UPDATE 1-Advantage Lithium CEO charged in U.S. college admissions scandal

By Cassandra Garrison

"BUENOS AIRES, March 13 (Reuters) - The chief executive of Advantage Lithium Corp, which is developing lithium projects in Argentina, has been arrested by U.S. authorities as part of a sweeping college admissions fraud scheme, according to court documents.

Authorities have charged some 50 people, including actors and business executives, in the largest college admissions fraud scheme in U.S. history, which steered students into elite universities by cheating the admissions process.

David Sidoo, 59, was arrested on March 8 and was charged with conspiracy to commit fraud for allegedly paying $200,000 to the scheme mastermind, William “Rick” Singer, to arrange for people to take the SAT admissions test for his two sons, according to U.S. court documents reviewed by Reuters.

Sidoo has run Vancouver-based Advantage Lithium since 2016."

Snip:

"The indictment against Sidoo details incidents between 2011 and February 2019, including thousands of dollars paid to people who were flown to Canada to secretly take admissions exams in place of his sons.

Falsified test results were sent to Yale University, Georgetown University, Chapman University and University of California-Berkeley, where his younger son was accepted, the indictment said.

Sidoo, a former member of the University of British Columbia’s board of governors, is also accused of paying to help other students in Florida and California cheat on admissions exams. "
