'Operation Varsity Blues': FBI busts Georgetown, USC, UCLA & more in college admissions bribe case - NY Daily News 3-12-19

The racketeering conspiracy charges unveiled Tuesday were brought against the coaches at schools including Wake Forest, Texas, Georgetown, UCLA, USC and Yale ...

______________________________

So this is how rich people stay rich. First, they cheat their way into Ivy League colleges, then they deduct the bribes on their tax returns.

And we wonder why we can’t afford to fix our roads or take care of our elderly. It’s also likely the tip of the iceberg, because most rich people will probably get away with this.

My hat is off to the FBI today. Bad Rich People !

I was just reading about this. Some parents were paying up to $2 million to have their kids attend these Schools. Of course, once they graduate there is a cushy job waiting for them thanks to dad's connections. They live in a different world with a different set of rules

I've always listened to what Bernie Sanders had to say about "rich people" with one eye open, but perhaps he was right about the "system being rigged," to a certain extent, in their favor.

Clearly some "rich people" were very bad, and must have believed they were entirely untouchable.

A lot of the wealthy people I worked for as a bodyguard believe that. It actually seemed like the rule. Not the exception.

This. The inflated ego on some of those people is truly amazing. Every traffic stop or any refusal of service is met with a "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!" Even the "prisons" they occasionally go to are a much better quality

Like in the case of the little jit bag who owns/owned the pharma company?

that is because they usually commit financial crimes, not violent ones.  remember ceo shmuck, who raised price of medicine 5000%, he is in gen pop, and he is doing good actually, bulked up, and his knowledge of financial and legal system made him many friends there. 

as far as ego,  i can guarantee, anyone in their shoes would act the same way.   i have no doubt if you had a car\paper that would let you off any moving violation, in few days time, you'd be braking every traffic law without thinking.

I think the “idiots” are the bad rich people, who believed they were untouchable.

I’m not saying that all rich people are bad, just these rich people. However, this does seem like an interesting sample from the broader “rich people” community. I doubt any were felons before.

This story seems to suggest a  broader contempt for the law, and the current tax system, by rich people, etc. 

I’m leaning towards a dose of socialism, as the medicine, not as a long-term fix, but as a temporary solution to this type of corruption. Pure capitalism seems unable and unwilling to cleanse itself of white collar corruption, while locking up the poor for self medication, etc. etc. 

It’s a lack of fear of the law, by rich people, which is the big story in this case.  And why not, we have a President, who; judging from the crimes of his associates, is engaged in the very same type of lying, cheating behavior. 

I can honestly say, for the first time in my life that I am seriously looking at some form of socialism as a potential remedy for bad rich people. I am rapidly losing faith in pure capitalism.

yea, just ask Cubans, Venezuelans for an advice.  

 this has nothing to do with capitalism, but with corruption, and crimes that exists in every part of society,  poor or rich.  

and if you think corruption does not exist in socialist regime, lmao, there is much more of it there.

maybe the biggest, and possibly only reason, you hate rich, is that you are not one of them?

advice on how the United States has tried its very utmost to destroy their country for, in the case of Cuba, 60 years, and has managed to fail totally? If managing to survive is a measure of success, Cuba seems to have done pretty well. (And let's not compare Cuba's health service or the reputation of its doctors overseas with good ol' freedom and Democracy, it might make people cry. :( )

actually you should compare, their doctors are not any worst, maybe even better than ours, with what they have, they are doing amazing job. and they are not in it for the money. it's actually 250k deaths from our doctors mistakes, every year that makes me cry. with the best diagnostic equipment, 1\3 of a million spend on medical school, they still kill 1\4 of a million a year.

btw usa keeps cuba exactly where they want them, there is no need to destroy them, none whatsoever, it would actually be counterproductive, so we never attempted it.

you should ask your local politician why they can't fix your roads, because neither criminal rich nor fbi, have anything to do with it,  i'm sure your local gvmnt has a website, or a FB page, so write them, take pic of your roads, make sure you take them from an angle that shows how bad and deep potholes are, use a ruler if holes are deep,  talk to your neighbors, have them do the same, take pic of  any damage those roads did to your car, including mechanics receipts, and sent them to your city hall, along with every local news station.  this is how you get things done. complaining here,  and blaming people you do not like will get you nowhere.

Once the economy gets bad enough, Americans will be climbing the fences of gated communities to take from the "haves". Money in the hands of the working class is the best protection the rich have from being over run.

It’s certainly an enticing solution, but the problem is, the French Revolution had so many bad things accompany it.

The far brighter solution is for truth to prevail without violence.  

Speaking of truth, how about a little from an openly gay, soon to be presidential candidate, who raised $600,000 yesterday, including a little of my money.

what does he have to offer, beside being openly gay,  any doable solutions? or just being openly gay is enough?

Well I met him when he bought out our company.  He spent a couple hours talking to the small fry which he didn't have to do, and he was polite and gracious.  People that feel like you are not worth the dirt on their shoes have a hard time faking it for that long.

lol, no, they absolutely do not, if you think WB thinks of you as equal, you could not be more wrong. 

as i have no doubt there is a group of people that you do not think of as equals. and you do not have to be rich to think that,  what do you think of trump supporters?
