WOW, this reminds me of an old Chinese saying:
“If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by.”

Now don't get me wrong, I have usually loved her acting work, but...
I have been waiting for many years to see Felicity Huffman get arrested for a crime(s)! Ever since she was on the TV show "Sports Night". She (and her hubby William H Macy) indicted all law-abiding gun owners and organizations for the crimes committed by violent criminals and for most suicides as well.

I just hope she has plenty of time to think about her own crimes for a change and how entitled she believes she is to allow her to justify her crimes.

By the way, for those who have not done the math, this whole cheating scandal mainly harms those honest students who happen to be excellent students but who don't have money to burn.

I can only feel sympathy for those kids who's mega-wealthy parents had such a low opinion of their kids that they felt that cheating was the only way their kids were going to be able to accomplish anything with their lives.

Any time you treat people as if they can't stand on their own two feet without a crutch all you are doing is crippling them for life by making them dependent on those crutches so they never learn what they are capable of on their own power. (yeah, I know some people literally need literal crutches, I was being figurative. These days you have to be clear on such things).

Hahaha I can't imagine the ridiculousness of having guns make up such a core part of your identity that you've nurtured a grudge against an actor for nearly 20 years because they appeared in an episode of a TV show that talked about guns. My dude, that is not normal behavior by any stretch of imagination.

@Liberalguns, that second and third paragraphs are beyond pathetic! An sense that you made subsequently were negated by those absurd statements.
