Recommended Posts

What in the cockroach head was Megan wearing today?!

No Sunny, your article had you and other AA females arrogantly demanding that Biden add AA's to specific positions, using the word 'owe' as I recall.  That word puts me off to begin with, as nobody owes anyone anything.

WS looks great for 90, the big ham...love him!  Megan was annoying with the loud assed apology.

It’s a bit more nuanced than that. They also consider sports - I believe Gabriel was an athlete, clubs you're involved with, student council, charitable work, recommendations.  
 

Gabriel probably had the advantage with recommendations, as his mother knows some influential people, but if he’s anything like his mother, he is a very well-rounded student. 

Bottom line in Ivy League Universities is $$$.  Again, if Gabriel had all these credentials and no money from his family to back it up, he wouldn't be darkening the doorway at Harvard in the fall. It has happened to many outstanding students who couldn't get into an Ivy League because of money, and those who should not have gotten in did because of money (Kushner).

I believe once Gabriel starts attending classes, a nice revenue stream will flow to Harvard from Sunny and Manny. And it will continue long after he graduates in four years.

(Dislaimer: I work in a prestigious university (not Ivy League) for the past 6.5 years, and have learned all about how students get admitted. Family finances speaks the loudest on an application. It also speaks the loudest when a student is failing, or being threatened with expulsion from the school. You wouldn't believe how 'money' makes everything go away).

YEs, Harvard admits students who score in the top 1 - 2 % on SAT.  Its not a done deal that a 4.0  and being on a sports team gets you in.

Exactly. And if Gabriel did not score in the top 1-2%, then he needed $$$$ to back him up.

If Gabriel had parents who's net income totaled less than $100,00 (for starters) he wouldn't be going to Harvard with his 4.0 GPA and his athletic abilities, no matter how he scored in the SATs. He wouldn't be going to the university I work at, either.

This makes sense. Money truly does makes everything easier. 

I will say, though, that at least Gabriel has the grades, skills, and the credentials, in addition to parental money and connections. So many kids don't have the grades, skills or credentials, and STILL get in because of parental money and connections, and coast through school and life on the same. That's the issue that Sunny was pointing out.

Meghan really does think only gun owners can talk about anything concerning guns.  It felt like she was purposely ignoring what Sara and Sunny had said and was only acknowledging what Whoopi had said.

Don't forget, MyFather accepted more money from the NRA than any other politician in history (at least until the last time he ran for anything, I know others have more than picked up the slack since).

Meghan loves guns, and praises them on camera, because $8 million dollars or so, buys a lot of fun stuff for a Princess.

Why don't they ask her why they need that type of gun? 

Probably because she can’t really hunt and needs the head start the gun gives her?  Most gun owners agree that one isn’t necessary to recreational hunting, etc.  and good lord...the hair and eyes.  It would have fit yesterday with Andy Cohen/real housewives but it’s terribly I professional for a political “analyst”.  I can’t even figure out that twisty middle thing.  
 

and why didn’t anyone note that the bill does include assistance to all farmers as the previous relief bills have.  It’s not like black farmers were the only ones with assistance this time. There were sep if ic reasons for the special farmers who are POC (not just black).    I really wish that they all did enough research to point things out when someone (normally MM) says something wrong.

Interesting as I’ve always heard that the ivy leavue schools often offer great, but poor, students the best financial aid packages.  That if they really want you your ability to pay is secondary.

I knew when MeAgain went down the road of talking about Asian representation that she would show how stupid she really is. Her PR people wrote her "apology" statement for her; perhaps they should be vetting her talking points every day as well. They are probably laughing their heads off at how much money they will be making off of this idiot.

This article includes tweets from a lot blue check mark people on Twitter. MeAgain has finally arrived. Instead of everybody just ignoring her stupidity, now people are actually calling it out.

MeAgain is getting called out everywhere!

https://www.thedailybeast.com/meghan-mccain-cries-identity-politics-over-calls-for-asian-american-host-to-replace-her-on-the-view?ref=home

From the article:

Quote

The irony, of course, is that Meghan McCain’s “identity” as the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain—something that she never fails to bring up on the show—has played a defining role in her media career. But she seemed to be implying that while she got her gig purely based on “merit,” the same could not be said for any Asian American co-host that could conceivably replace her.

As CNN’s Abby Phillip tweeted in response, “There have been more View co-hosts who are children of famous people than view co-hosts who are Asian. Does she really think that’s because there aren't enough Asian people with the right qualifications?”

I'm a very feminine person who loves clothes, hair and makeup. I'm sure some people think me wearing a full face of makeup to work and often opting for dresses over pants is extra. I don't hate on anyone who just wants to look pretty. But Meghan is going for the same vibe of her idols, Dolly Parton and Erika Jayne. Those women are showgirls! I thought Meghan fancied herself a serious conservative pundit. Meghan doesn't need to show up with minimal makeup and a pantsuit, but the in your face hair and makeup look so silly.

MeAgain's idiotic comments overshadowed her other missteps today. Star Trek is Ben's favourite series. Whoopi is her co-host. But MeAgain doesn't know how to pronounce Whoopi's character's name? She not only got it wrong she got it so wrong I had no idea who she was talking about. (Guinan always had the best hats.)

So happy Whoopi corrected her.   Black farmers sued the government for years of discriminatory treatment and won.   The funds in the bill are related to that.   And as others have said, there were other funds for all farmers in the bill.

McCain is 36. Hasn’t she outlived her usefulness on this show? LOL!!! Seriously though. I haven’t watched this show in years. I’m even trying to remember which cast format I last watched. I think it was when there was some (sorta) comedian named Michelle Collins on there as a host. That’s was several years ago, if I recall. Anyway, I read all the news bullets of the day and it’s always about McCain and some stupid comment she has made. I guess production likes it because it brings attention to the show but it seems like she is more hate by the viewers than anything. I just wonder if they’ll ever pull the plug and fire her?!

I guess it comes down to why they have her on.  If it was truly to be the voice of the conservatives I think she'd be fired because she ain't doing them any favours!  I mean I am assuming ABC isn't Deep Democrat and keeping her on to make the other side seem stupid! However if it's to get attention for the show, well, that's working.  But is this the kind of attention they want?  The $64,000 question.

She regrets the error.  She knows in that heart that is apparently wandering around outside her body (this statement solves so many mysteries surrounding her missing heart) she is the most thin skinned white person to ever thin skin white person.

At the very least, fact check the moron who always exaggerates, twists things, takes words out of context. Basically, she’s a fucking idiot and she’s worn down everyone, except perhaps Sunny who often corrects her. It was good to hear Whoopi point out that the black farmers situation was more complex.  I’m guessing that came up in the morning meeting, and Whoopi was more alert than normal. 
 

I once was going back and forth on a subject with my cousin. She had spent four years in Hungary and knew nothing about current issues in the US. I finally told her she was so uninformed that we couldn’t talk about the subject. I wish they would tell Meghan that.

Most schools offer bare minimum in financial aid or scholarships, enough to make them look appealing in their promotions to applicants. As we're reminded every year at our financial review in June (our fiscal year starts July 1), "Private education is a business. It's not a charity."

Schools need  more revenue taken in then going out in financial aid packages and scholarships, and that revenue comes from tuition. If an applicant's ability to pay didn't matter (and it was only based on GPA, SATs, and athletic skills) the schools would not be asking for financials from the student as well as the family.

As it's pointed out to us every year (and again, I work at a very prestigious private school, not an Ivy League, but this is a guideline for acceptance across the board *) :

1. Those who can pay out of pocket, in full, get accepted first. Period.

2. Those who can pay with a student loan get accepted next.

3. All others get accepted last.

Sunny can continue to brag about her son getting into Harvard all she wants, but it would be much better if she was more honest and told everyone how his tuition is being paid. I'm betting my last dollar it's out-of-pocket.

*This is for private schools, so please keep in mind city and state colleges and universities have different acceptance policies when it comes to finances.
