I got this from a friend, and I must say the utter stupidity of its "logic" is staggering. Look, I don't tell you my wacky conspiracy theories, so don't expect me to share a glass of sour grape wine.
The sad thing is that I could unravel the entire argument in my sleep ! Unlike the sterile echo chamber you call a skull, my mind functions. I reproduce the mail in it's entirety for your amusement and derision. Whoever thought this email up has the IQ of a jar of olives. And now...on with the show:
This is very interesting! I never thought about it this way. Perhaps this is why so many physicians are conservatives or Republicans..
The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers Party.
Barack Obama is a lawyer.
Michelle Obama is a lawyer.
Hillary Clinton is a lawyer.
Bill Clinton is a lawyer.
John Edwards is a lawyer.
Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer.
Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate).
Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
Harry Reid is a lawyer.
Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer.
The Republican Party is different.
President Bush is a businessman.
Vice President Cheney is a businessman.
The leaders of the Republican Revolution:
Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
Tom Delay was an exterminator.... Dick Armey was an economist.
House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.
Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against Ronald Reagan in 1976.
The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who are often the targets of lawyers.
The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers.. Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Bush and Cheney, or who heal the sick, like Frist, or who immerse themselves in history, like Gingrich.The Republicans merely mock and scorn people who have different views then themselves. And the last time I checked, Lawyers make money.
The Lawyers'€™ Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and services that people want, as the enemies of America . And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes of the Lawyers'€™ Party, grow.
Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail? Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation.They rail against obscene profits while screwing the workers. You know, the ones that actually WORK. When Lilly Pharmaceuticals' 30 year old patent on Prozac was about to run out, they tinkered with it slightly, re-named it and marketed it as a new drug. They had plenty of time to make money off it, this is just greed. And since WHEN does a banker produce anything of value ?
This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyers.
Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case the American people.
Lawyers seek to have new laws passed, they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side.Now that's odd... I was under the impression that Congress passed laws, but apparently I'm wrong.
And the last time I checked the Republican Party claims it's for less government, but they sure want to keep Pot illegal, outlaw abortion, and tell us what to do with out lives. Plus they do it all the damn time !
Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an awful way to govern a great nation.
When politicians as lawyers begin to view some Americans as clients and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal system in our life becomes all-consuming. Some Americans become €œadverse parties of our very government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit.
We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom from laws, from courts, and from lawyers. Which republic are YOU living in ?
Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Libby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing. As we all know, every Republican has NEVER used a lawyer in any of their dealings. Just drink the Kool-Aid already and shut up.
We cannot expect the Lawyers'€™ Party to provide real change, real reform or real hope in America. Can't...stop...laughing.
Most Americans know that a republic in which every major government action must be blessed by nine unelected judges is not what Washington intended in 1789. Most Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. Most Americans intuit that more lawyers and judges will not restore declining moral values or spark the spirit of enterprise in our economy.(Alexander) Hamilton had written that through the practice of judicial review the Court ensured
that the will of the whole people, as expressed in their Constitution, would be supreme over
the will of a legislature, whose statutes might express only the temporary will of part of the
people. And Madison had written that constitutional interpretation must be left to the
reasoned judgment of independent judges, rather than to the tumult and conflict of the
political process. If every constitutional question were to be decided by public political
bargaining, Madison argued, the Constitution woulpeting factions, political passion and partisan spirit.
Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American society and business. Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work. Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more power will only make our problems worse. Whereas more Republicans and giving them more unchecked power is a golden dream. My ass.
The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the world's lawyers! This is a LIE. We have 50 percent or less. Link: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_country_in_the_world_has_most_lawyers_per_capita
Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in ridiculous lawsuits such as spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing the establishment that sold it to you and also to limit punitive damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits. This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on by the Democrat Party. When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association goes to the Democrat Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high! High product costs having nothing to do with a stock market that's flawed, or BUSINESSMEN being overly greedy. No, we'd never take advantage of our own citizens, that'd be just wrong. Okay, I'm so Liberal I have to go smoke a joint, practice witchcraft, and tell all my women friends to become lesbians.
