All I can say is wow. Felicity Huffman took the plea deal and apologized publicly. At least she's shown remorse or fake remorse...but Miss Laughlin is gonna challenge all the evidence, including wire taps and phone convos where she explicitly speaks of the whole scheme and of paying to make it happen.

Maybe her entitled approach will get her a lesser sentence. She says she knew it broke rules but did not know it was illegal. Lol, she should have gotten herself into USC. :)

I bet she wishes she had taken the deal now. She faces years in jail instead of months. I thought the axiom: "ignorance of the law is no excuse." was true. Just because you didn't know it was illegal doesn't excuse your actions. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

No she doesn't. She KNEW that before she made the decision to plead that way. She thinks her supposed ignorance will get sympathy from the judge. Her attorney prob tried to get her not to do it.

Funny thing is several of the others took the plea happily..and apologized for cheating. Yet she wants the court to believe she didn't know it was illegal. Smh 

witchywoman --- 2 years ago -

No one cares. 

witchywoman --- 2 years ago -

No one cares. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

Yes we do. Some of us like to discuss current events. Some of us are not trolls. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

Ignorance of the law is no excuse. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 2 years ago -

Aunt Becky is doing hard time.

Shouldn't Elizabeth Warren also be prosecuted for claiming Indian heritage to get affirmative action status to get into an Ivy League school? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

I think that's small potatoes in comparison to money laundering... 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

It is, but its still fraud. Plus if your kid earned the right to be there and a fraudulent claimant got your kids earned slot its not a small matter. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

Weird to me that they'd bribe someone to get into USC. Maybe an ivy league. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

All of it is wrong. It's just when some cases are heavily covered by the media, it tends to take on a life of its own. They have people stirred up bc college has become pretty unaffordable to main stream America unless you get financial aid and/or scholarships, and the last people on Earth who need assistance cheat their way in.. It's disgusting since they CAN afford it but couldn't get in on their own merit so they used Moms bribery money. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

Pretentious people doing pretentious things. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

I'd read that only 29% of college graduates even use their degrees. So looks like a bad investment. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

Depending on your major, it may not produce much of an ROI. However, its a door opener. Without it, many doors are shut. By degree I'm an electrical engineer but I haven't done it in 20 years or more. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 2 years ago -

You are right. I'm a mathematician by degree but never used it. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

It looks good on paper to have a degree. It shows you survived college and the rigors of it. Many, many kids don't graduate so it's become a value if you have. And it is odd few stay in their field of choice from college. I guess reality in the post education real world job market is a bit different than academic pursuits..you still have to prove yourself even if you have a degree, and even if you don't. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

I get the social aspect of college, but seems a lousy investment. Some take up to thirty years to pay it off. And, no offense, but the above three seem to prove my point. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

I'm a mathematician
Nice to meet a fellow dork. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

Some take up to thirty years to pay it off.

Student loans especially for degrees like Cultural Anthropology are not a good investment. But, its still a door opener.

but the above three seem to prove my point.

What exactly is the point? 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

What exactly is the point? 

That its not a good investment 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

That's an extreme over generalization. Education is a good investment; it opens doors that otherwise wouldn't be open without a degree. Some degrees are way more valuable than others. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

I think it's a wise idea to get your degree in a broad major so it translates well into various things. It's hard to go wrong with a general business degree. Hard to go wrong with a marketing degree.

I had a friend who's son was a gifted musician and loved music. And he was good, got into the Aggie band at A&M and wanted to major in music,
specifically as a performer in a concert environment. She was really upset bc education is so expensive and jobs in orchestra and concert music are hard to find and make a living at it. He went ahead and did it, and sells insurance now. :(

I never got my Aunt Becky seduces nephew porn, so **** her!

Same to you.

I know friends of my kids that not only got degrees in music, art history, anthropology, etc, but then when for masters. It is sad. If they are able to find a job, it’s for low wages. I asked a few, while they were in school, how they were going to support themselves when they finished school. They’d find something and this was their passion. I told them to get a business degree and use their vacation time each year for their passion. These are the people that want us to pay off their student loans. It’s sad, but where were their parents. I can’t put all the blame on the decisions a 20 year old makes. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

True. Why do we make student loans available for programs that make it nearly impossible to get a good job and pay it back?

There should be loans for STEM degrees, medical field degrees, a certain number of business degrees and a very limited number of fine arts degrees. 

voice of reason --- 2 years ago -

as if this is shocking to anyone that rich people bribe others to get their way. what is there really to discuss here?

trump is the prime example of this behavior and has proven to be far worse than a college admittance scandal. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

What has been proven? 

voice of reason --- 2 years ago -

payoff to his whores, for one. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 2 years ago -

Yawn.....

Oh, a fly is in my peanut butter. Damn Trump!! LOL.. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

payoff to his whores, for one.

Oh yeah, testimony from the proven perjurer Cohen. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

payoff to his whores, for one.

Why do you call them whores? They're just business women. 

Let Logic Prevail --- 2 years ago -

Oh yeah, testimony from the proven perjurer Cohen. 


Total deflection. This has nothing to do with Cohen's own issues.

It has indeed been proven he paid Stormy off with $130k. 

voice of reason --- 2 years ago -

and you're just mr. contrary. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

It has indeed been proven he paid Stormy off with $130k.

Yes, but there's no corroborative evidence from a credible source Trump told him to. Plus, what does that have to do with the Mueller report? 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

It's all they got now 

Prolix Raconteur --- 2 years ago -

And it ain't much HAHAHAHAHA...

The ridiculous 8 person panel on CNN today was hilarious. Never seen such a bunch of sad sacks. They even lambasted Barr for saying there was no collusion "too many times". They said he used the phrase "like a hammer"...HAHAHAHA you can't make this stuff up. Jake Tapper was literally like a angry child about to cry. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

Whoever peed in VOR's cereal, go to your room!! Lol

Wow.
