      You are mistaken. A number of the bay area folks listed are prominent GOP supporters and fundraisers. White privilege has nothing to do with party lines.

It's a bad value because of the immorality and entitlement it teaches the children admitted using this scam.

As for the value of a USC degree, I don't think a BA from USC opens any more doors than a degree from UCLA, which would cost much less in tuition. We are blessed in CA to have a still great public university system.

      You probably think this is funny but this false anti-Clinton story has already led one weak-minded right-winger to terrorize the establishment and fire a gun within it. No one was hurt but that was just good luck. And, of course, the weak-minded individual misled by posts like yours is in a lot of trouble.

      Since you can't know who reads your posts, it is better not to steer people to stories you know to be false. And you do KNOW it is false.

    Really?

    We used to have a fairly good system. But, that was 50 years ago.

    Now, for the most part, its just rubbish.

      There has certainly been grade inflation from 50 years ago, but CA still has one of the great university systems in the country. In fact, as a system I don't think any other state has its equal. For example, University of Wisconsin, Madison is a great school but the other campuses not so much. Same for University of Michigan. But UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara and UC Irvine are all top notch or close to it.

      UCLA and Berkeley are rated 1st and 2nd among public universities by US News and World Report

        That article shows UCLA as ranked higher than USC. But I guess if you are rich, spending more feels like a better deal

    Maybe, but his point is valid. At what point to we come full circle and start valuing trade schools, community colleges and real world experience as much as a degree from a "My daddy bribed my way in" or "My daddy built the library" "elite" school. I once knew a guy with a degrees from Harvard and Oxford that lived in my garage. He had rich parents but was a complete tool

      Would it be fair to say a real president should have some important work to do. To spend the whole day playing on your cell phone. It’s very clear to America and the world, your president is completely incompetent.

        Have you ever heard of a president in the past going from country to country conversing with their leaders like our POTUS? I think he has a good sense of diplomacy and really working at it! Now there is a man who literally rolls up his shirtsleeves and gets to work! He's serious about his job!
