    Progeny ARE (biological) legacy. A lot of people seem to misunderstand what legacy admissions are. They are not the product of bribes, per se. They are merely colleges favoring, for admissions, the children of graduates over those of non-graduates. Those children often have superior connections, make more money and donate more of it to their alma maters than other students.

    That’s a fact. That is one of the reasons republicrap hate immigrants… they compete with their lazy, stupid children for college admissions and then for jobs..

    “Legacy admissions” is not “parents legally (if not ethically) paying huge donations (e.g. as in bribes) to schools they had once attended,” it is daughter applying to and attending the same school as Mom or Dad.

    She is likely to have an edge at those schools, because those schools know that the more generations of one family attend their school, the more money those families will make, on the average, and the more likely they will show their gratitude by making large donations… They LOVE dynasties!

    Legacy admissions don’t require any string-pulling, so while not entirely fair to other applicants, those decisions are entirely in the hands of the schools, so at least seem to be relatively honest…

    Some people would argue that they are business decisions, necessary to fatten endowments and improve and maintain the quality of the education they provide, and that as private businesses, i.e. capitalism, they have a right to maximize profits, and that that’s one way to do it.

    What, are we finding fault with capitalism?

    It’s about time.

    Which is why pluggers are usually fat, and have heart disease. Maybe that’s why they’re called pluggers? Because of all the PLUGS in their hearts?

    Some people think it is worth impeaching him if only to force his criminal cronies in the Senate to go on record as voting against indicting him. We need to identify all the spoilers and not forget who they are.

    Impeachment, in this case, would not only be a failed, i.e. sabotaged attempt to remove the POTUS, it would also be a condemnation. Some of us think that it would be worth the cost just to let him, and the world, know how much we loath him…
