Freaking out is an extreme tone, and not what I meant.

My point is that clearly this Hilary Benghazi issue is important to you and you do not want to see her as President. I don't have any strong feelings about her one way or the other, but you clearly cannot stand her and that is your choice.

One of the most controversial and interesting Supreme Court Decisions Citizens United v FEC centered solely around the right to fund a movie about how bad Hilary is. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_United_v._FEC

This is the same case that people say makes corporations people, but that is a little off base, but the point is people out there do not like Hilary, others love her and others like myself could care less about Hilary.

However, keep speaking your mind that is your right.

That should give you some fuel.

A different President with a different cover up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R67CH-qhXJs

The point is you can get rambling responses from countless Presidents avoiding the simple answer to questions.

Politicians, stretch the truth it is part of the job and why we decide to freak out about random lies once in awhile is beyond me.

You can't be completely honest as a President, simply cannot be done Democrat-Republican whatever. However, people join the media onslaught of whatever the flavor of the week is in.

If the media wants we can spend months talking about the air-pressure in a football.

Blah blah, but why isn't there focus on a candidate's ability to effectively run the country. In my lifetime I know Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama have lied countless times. The next President whether it is Hilary, Carson, Trump I don't even know will lie and/or stretch the truth.

That is what Politics is and it attracts people that are capable of blatantly lying. That is not necessarily even a bad thing, our great American Hero George Washington lied, cheated, killed, and committed treason to create this country.

So it just simply baffles me when everyone likes to make a spectacle on some random issue, but what is truly great about this country is you can speak your mind about the issues freely. I don't agree with you, but plenty of people will be happy to bash Hilary with you.

I will be doing something else, that you probably think is a waste of time, but as long as our right to Free Speech, Association, etc is standing let the politicians lie, cheat and steal and do some good along the way as well, it won't impact my life all that much.

Whoa, whoa are you alleging that a media outlet might misconstrue the facts in favor of a political candidate?

Are you also claiming that a politician might have done something less than noble? Possibly even directly lied about something?

What next are lawyers going to start arguing?

Law School Admissions / Re: International degree equivalence
« on: November 09, 2015, 06:11:59 PM »
I knew a number of french students that simply enrolled in LLM programs at my school, which upon completion allowed them to sit for the California Bar Exam.

The LLM program only requires one year of study in the U.S. before being able to sit for the bar exam in California, not sure of the requirements in other states.

I imagine if you really wanted to enroll in a three year J.D. program in the U.S. after completing a French Law Degree schools would likely be happy to accept tuition payments for three years instead of one, but I assume the reason most of my French friends did the LLM program was to finish the program in one year opposed to three.

As I tell anyone internet posters like myself and Maintain can offer some general helpful advice, but you will get real answers from the law school admissions office at the schools you are interested in.

If you want to move to New York after finishing your French J.D. reach out to the NY Law schools, NYU, New York Law, Cardozo, Columbia, Fordham, Hofstra to name a few and see what the say. The admissions department at each school will no the admission requirements of their school far better than internet posters like myself and Maintain.

Good luck in your legal career

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Why I picked an unaccredited law school
« on: November 09, 2015, 10:49:42 AM »
100% agree with you Maintain and as to the unaccredited schools, as Maintain says you can sue and probably win the right to simply take a bar in another state after exerting a ton of time and energy to simply take the bar, which is a monumental task in and of itself.

So if you are attending a non-aba school that is state accredited be sure that is the state you want to be in.

As to how they won I am fairly certain they made Privilege & Immunity arguments, which resulted in them being able to sit for the bar, but not 100% sure.
