I always thought ol Perry sucked. The whole last minute surprise thing made me laugh.

I always thought he did for lawyers what the Lethal Weapon franchise did for cops and the public perception of each.

Law is a tiresome tedious detail oriented practice.

Easy to make fun of lawyers till ya need one.

Not really. Most lawyers are merely practitioners who sell their trade skills. I've known good lawyers and have also known losers. They're merely trades folks who charge for a service, much in the blue collar manner of selling a service. And at high price at that. A good electrician is worth more per hour than a mediocre lawyer. Sorry, but not all lawyers are the legends in their own minds that they perceive. Think ambulance chaser?
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I was always partial to My Cousin Vinny. Best opening statement ever:

"What that guy just said was #@$%%. Thank you."
"Torture doesn't work" lol
Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

"...as we reason and love, we are able to hope. And hope enables us to resist those things that would enslave us."

LOL Lobo! One of my all time favorite court films. (And you had perfect timing with that post.)

One of my other favorites is Al Pacino in And Justice for All "In the halls of justice, the only justice is in the halls."

All I am saying is I have met both flavors. While it is true not all are great it is also true not all or most are of the ilk you describe.

Most are journeyman workers doing an honest days job for an honest days pay.

Amazing how you are disregarding my point. No one questions the right of the government to require car registration and licensing, but many have argued that the right to own a gun should not be subject to the same regulations since gun ownership is a Second Amendment right. My argument directly addresses that misconception.

But I guess there is no stopping the right wing myths about so-called liberals just desiring free stuff. It's not about things being free, it's about what we want our tax money to be spent on.

Kind of reminds me of Bill O'Reilly's racist rant the other day, in which he expressed surprise that most Asians are Democrats, given that they are an "industrious and hard working" race.

Asians are a race? Was he referring to Arabs ? Russians? Indians? Persians?
