Actually, I am pretty certain she said "...through many trials and shtruggles..."

centralcal

Also, I'm curious what age group the "students" were in. Her remarks sound like she was addressing K-3 grade students.

matt

because, gosh darnit, we're good enough and people like us and we have B-2 bombers.

narciso

Leaving aside, the plight of the Uighurs and other break away provinces, the syatem of internal passports as Rush pointed out, well there's nothing left to say,

narciso

Taranto notes what layers of editors have wrought;

"Because of an editing error, an earlier version of a picture caption with this article referred incorrectly to the leaders President Obama met in The Hague. Most are heads of government, not heads of state. And an earlier version of this article misidentified, at one point, the geographical area Russia has annexed. It is the Crimean region, not the nation of Ukraine."--New York Times, March 25

You're not being metaphorical, Jane, is there an appeal possible?

legacy

At Texas A&M, 321 of the legacy admits in 2002 were white, while only three were black and 25 Hispanic. At Harvard, only 7.6 percent of legacy admits in 2002 were underrepresented minorities, compared with 17.8 percent of all students. At the University of Virginia, 91 percent of early-decision legacy admits in 2002 were white, 1.6 percent black, and 0.5 percent Hispanic.

GMax

Yawn, who really gives a flip about that at the moment?

GMax

While you are quoting stats, how about telling what % of Blacks, and of Hispanics would have been admitted to those institutions without there be a separate, lower and distinct scale known as Affirmative Action ( AKA as discrimination ).

Ignatz

--And slowly but surely, America changed. We got rid of those unjust laws. And today, just 50 years later, my husband and I are President and First Lady of the United States.--

That would appear to be an argument that unfortunately supports Jim Crow not Brown v Board of Education.

Miss Marple

I saw the article about this in the Weekly Standard.

I couldn't bring myself to read the entire thing, because it was just too embarrassing for our country.

Momto2

Me, too Miss M. It's like a bad dream but we never wake up!!

Bori

So 3% of the incoming class were white Legacy students at Texas A&M. Wow, that's like .8 of 1% of the student body.

Clarice Feldman

Most colleges have sharply reduced their legacy admits over the years. Legacy's argument means little unless we see how many legacy admits there were--it;s hard BTW to qualify as a legacy when not many were admitted in prior generations,

Miss Marple

They have extended the March 31 sign-up date for Obamacare again.

I assume this means the 5-7 million enrolled that Reid was blabbing about was another lie.

Raise your hands if you're surprised.

boatbuilder

I don't think Dana understands what "legacy" means.

daddy

Megyn Kelly reports as of 5 minutes ago that the White House just delayed the ObamaCare sign up deadline, so it doesn't actually end on 31 March. You get an extra 2 weeks if you get on the computer and click a box saying you need more time.

narciso

How did Megyn put it, it's a 'promise ring' now, this is no way to run a railroad, meanwhile as JiB points out on the other thread, the slow walking of the Benghazi investigation, has not been by accident,

Jack is Back

I don't think Dana understands what "legacy" means.

You can add Legacy to a long list of misunderstandings and misinterpretations, like:

Captialism
Personal responsibility
Liberty
The Constitution
American Exceptionalism
Free Enterprise
Individual Achievement
2nd Amerndment Gun Rights
Democrat Voter Fraud
Obama's Amatuerism
Dana's sanity,

etc, etc. etc.

What narc mentioned above:

For those of you waiting with bated breath for moar Benghazi hearings and revelations or non-revelations I have this in email from Ginni Thomas:

"Former Obama Adm official, Mike Morell, now with Beacon Strategies, to testify in an open hearing next week before House Intell Committee (HPSCI) and Fox's Catherine Herridge has a ripe piece about Beacon Strategies that played the other night on Bret Baier's show here."

Jack is Back

The Herridge link on Morrell and Beacon Strategies

During my time in DC I saw a lot of revolving door but not as incestuous as it has become under Obama. Plus it is dangerous to our National Security.

NKonIPad

Lawless extensions of signup deadlines. I hope the 6 Justices are watching this as they contemplate the Hobby case.

Jane on Ipad

I assume so Narc, and DHS could decide on its own to give her back. We need a new governor, AG and everything else. I just don't get it.

Jane on Ipad

Morello is in Clinton's pocket.

Great News for Elliot Spitzer, ex-San Diego Mayor Flexner, and other disgraced pervs and deviates across the fruited plain:

Anthony Weiner Hired As Business Insider Columnist: ‘Weiner!’ Debuts On March 28

From Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, who published this announcement on Monday:

We believe the unique combination of brashness and wonkiness that made Weiner one of last year's most memorable candidates and one of the most high-profile advocates for health care reform during his time in Congress will make him a perfect fit for Business Insider.

narciso

It puts a spotlight on paucity of the Senate report, on the subject, the way the most congenial conclusions were derived, unless any other was available,

legacy

Fitzsimmons also said that Harvard’s undergraduate population is comprised of approximately 12 to 13 percent legacies

narciso

Well consider the founder of said publication was a 'creative Wall Street' analyst in the previous bubble, and his sidelights include trig denialism of the worst kind,

legacy

Minority representation remained strong. The admitted class is 19.9 percent Asian-American, 11.5 percent African-American, 11.5 percent Latino, 2.2 percent Native American, and .5 percent Native Hawaiian.

daddy

16.7 percent of incoming Pledges to Delta House are Legacies.

Jack is Back

Pretty close to 25% there who probably haven't yet found a reason to be proud of their country yet.

narciso
Clarice Feldman

Harvard is the oldest college in the nation so you'd expect them to have a larger number of legacies. OTOH assuming the legacies are evenly spread out over 4 years, slightly more than 3 % of each class would be legacies. No? And why assume those legacies are all white? They cedrtainly aren't.

I feel like subscribing to Business Insider so I could cancel my subscription.

you know the whole puppet theatre, they mounted afterward, has a bitter taste;

Miss Marple

Weiner always has someone willing to give him a job, or at least let him run for office. It's amazing.

The guy is an idiot, homely as a mud fence, and obnoxious.

Huma's relatives must have coughed up some oil money to Business Insider. That's my only explanation.

daddy

I feel like subscribing to Business Insider so I could cancel my subscription.

Ain't that the truth!

Right probably two generation at least, wasn't Jonathan Martin aiming at being the third generation at HLS.

Is it 2002 again?

legacy

Jesus fucking Christ, Clarice. How did you come up with that?

daddy

And the ADN (Anchorage Daily News) is very happy about this breaking development, otherwise it wouldn't be on their front page:

EPA proposes greater protections for streams, wetlands under Clean Water Act

WASHINGTON -- The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule Tuesday that would give the federal government regulatory authority over millions of acres of wetlands and roughly 2 million miles of streams.

"These places are where we get our drinking water, and where we hunt, fish, swim and play," EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said as she announced the proposed rule.

And then Gina told Alaskan Natives to go f###in' gag a maggot.

DrJ

The only Harvard legacies I know are Asian. Four generations, with one skipped.

Jack is Back

daddy,

If the Leftie Greens want to protect so much in Alaska then why don't they move and let the Natives have it as their own special piece of earth?

Now that Mark Steyn had the good sense to lawyer up, I suppose I should say that also:

I stand with Sandy who stands with Steyn.

Harvard legacies? John O'Hara still upset.

Jane,

How do we help that family get their daughter away from the Nazi family services? I would be happy to help in any way.

This evening we went to the local VFW hall for a special awards ceremony. It was the School's Americanism awards. Frederick won 1st place for his rendering of Rosie the Riveter and her story:

And the champ:


Jack is Back

His art work is not showing up on my screen correctlly. But if you can see it let me know. Safari:(

Clarice Feldman

If 12-13 % of the school is legacies and the school is a 4 year school and the legacies are evenly distributed, that aould make 3% or so legacies in each class,

narciso

Now you went and confounded him with simple division, cruel Clarice,

Skoot

It looks like the Freedom Tower jumpers have been charged with 3rd degree burglary, a D felony in NY state, facing 7 years. That'll learn em. They should have showed some deference to the dead.

I say this as the son an early recreational skydiver. I spent many days as a child at DZ's all over the tri-state area -- Owen Quinn who jumped from the WTC in 1975 was part of this crew as well. It was pretty much wild west, everybody doing donuts on HD's and drinking Shlitz until the jump master came over to the check the chutes. Then they all straightened right up. That's how I learned about respect for authority. Although it didn't sink in for quite a few years:)


daddy

How the hell can giving the EPA more power be a solution to anything.

Centralcal on iPad

I can see it fine, Jack. On iPad using Safari!

Miss Marple

I can see it, too, Jack. Using Firefox on a PC.

Congratulations to Frederick!

narciso

Great job, Frederick.

3rd degree burglary, shirley they can't be serious, OTOH, my confidence in the security at the Freedom Tower is seriously eroded,

Jane on Ipad

Mark,

I dunno. Make it political? File a lawsuit? I really have no idea. Everyone thinks we must be missing something but I don't have a clue what it is. I've been trying to find out about the judge but I know no one who practices in that court. I wouldn't trust DSS as far as I could throw them.

If I represented them I'd consider filing a malpractice suit against Children's and the resident, which would make them dig in until discovery got too painful. No longer believe that gvt has any commitment to the truth, so I just don't know.

Miss Marple

Good night, all!

Danube on iPad

"I saw the article about this in the Weekly Standard."

What is "this?"

Centralcal on iPad

DoT: I think "this" is the subject of TM's blog post - FLOTUS's remarks to the students in China.

MaryD

Please convey my heartiest congratulations to Frederick!
The picture shows up well, but the print is too small for me to read; probably my eyes are to blame.

Jack is Back

Thanks, all.

Goede nacht from Florida where we are spending less than Belgium to provide hospitality to Obama and his minions. What a disgrace. Back to being a Canadian again.

Slaap lekker, tots morgen.

Congrats to Frederick, JiB!

Jack Kennedy and his older brother, Joe were both legacies of their Harvard grad father Joseph P.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

JIB, you have a treasure there. But I am sure you know that.

NKonIPad

And their younger brother Ted got his fat ass thrown out of Harvard for cheating.

Captain Hate

Ted, like Sheila Jackass Lee, was smart enough to navigate the wading pool of Virginia law school.

Ignatz

The syntax and username of legacy is not consistent with Dana.

narciso

And he ended up heading the Judiciary Committee, with Slo Jo, the plagiarist, some kind of irony, judging men they were not fit to shine their shoes,

SJL vomited some of her typical 'special' comments re: the Malaysian Airlines disappearance. A national disgrace.

Given even distribution.

Heh, 3% of the total is in each class, still 12% legacy in each class.

Captain Hate

Damn Dave, thanks for that link which I just bookmarked.

Captain Hate

Regarding tonight's POI, there's no way Miss Groves ends up aligning herself with the grey haired villain. Btw it was never revealed how Bear was given his scent or did I miss something.

I did like the eye communication between Shaw and Reese when Finch (or Mr Kingfisher) was saying "we can't break into the UN".

TexasIsHeaven

"A national disgrace."

You are so right Beasts - but what can we do? The district has been carved out in such a way as to guarantee she will be there until way past eternity. I've started telling people she is from from Dingy Harry's district in Nevada - LIV's believe anything they are told so I figure it just might work.

Beasts of England

I guess very little can be done, TiH. Districts tend to re-elect their representatives and gerrymandering (by both parties) almost ensures more of the same. I feel sorry for the minority in her district who must cringe at her words and deeds.

Danube on iPad

"The syntax and username of legacy is not consistent with Dana."

I can't tell. But the passive-aggressive trademark - the craven unwillingness to make an assertion that is susceptible of either proof or disproof - is a trademark certainly to be noted.

As is the absence of any explanation of the plainly racist exclusion of black students at Pitzer.

Ignatz

--I can't tell.--

No sophomoric word play. No typos to speak of. Comprehensible, complete sentences with punctuation and everything. Name is not semi clever and is hot linked to wiki.

Ignatz

Off to sleep, perchance to dream of beautiful Brit expats in western Canuckistan. :)

daddy

Obama's drunken philandering faux Daddy went to Harvard. How did Barry the Wonderboy get in?

Great point Gus. So Obama was a Legacy at Harvard. Ha!

daddy

I don't think that rescinding the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare is punishment enough for the boobs who voted to pass it. When we do rescind it, we ought to add a penalty that those who voted for it are now required to read it.

Shares of Hemlock would probably go thru the roof.

cathyf
When we do rescind it, we ought to add a penalty that those who voted for it are now required to read it.
They should be required to read the entire bill out loud. In front of a witness. If they start to doze off, their chair should be hooked up to a device which delivers a mild electric shock. Administered by the volunteer witness. Who is also allowed to hit the button whenever some particularly egregious clause is read...
