Lawyers LIE.

They're trained to lie. It's their job and for many, a life calling to Lie despite all the facts. Just look at Obama!


That's why most people consider Lawyers, Pond Scum.

Why would you repost a really dumb quote from that fraud?

1. Did you hear about the sleazy mafia that is primarily made up of:

Liars

Leeches

Alcoholics

Weasels

Windbags

Yelling screaming maniacs addicted to cocaine, heroin, and meth

Embezzlers and money launderers

Racketeers and

Sleazy

Seedy

Shady Scumbags

2. QUESTION: What is the origin of the United States legal profession?

ANSWER: A few centuries ago in Western Europe most of the taverns had snakes crawling all over the floor. In fact it was so common, that therefore most of the customers did not even object and instead just accepted it as normal. However after awhile a strong movement did finally get started to get rid of the snakes in the taverns. So the customers in the taverns chased the snakes into the sea.

So the snakes that had been evicted from the taverns of Western Europe and into the sea then swam across the Atlantic Ocean, finally landed in North America, and then organized the American Bar Association.

3. Ask John Edwards and Abbe Lowell, and who is Edwards' attorney, if it is true that lawyers have far and away the highest rates of alcoholism and drug addiction, and including to heroin and cocaine, of any major profession. Also ask them if it is true that lawyers who are cocaine and heroin addicts have an extreme tendency to become not only totally out of control sadistic maniacs, but also to embezzle the funds of their clients and former clients, and to then try to "prove" the client or former client whose money was stolen is "nuts," and that his complaint is supposedly without foundation, by harrassing the client into exploding and making a fool of himself.

In fact, ask Edwards and Lowell if that was probably the real reason behind the Gian Luigi Ferri / 101 California Street / Pettit & Martin incident that occurred in San Francisco some years ago, an incident that is mentioned in Wikipedia.

In fact, ask Edwards and Lowell if virtually every lawyer is aware that almost certainly the real reason behind the Gian Luigi Ferri / 101 California Street incident was that most likely a sleazy law firm deliberately tried to harass former client Gian Luigi Ferri into exploding and making a fool of himself, and most likely after first embezzling his money, but that there was an understanding that no lawyer would talk about it to the press and/or the general public, and including since lawyers do not want the public to learn that the legal profession is even one thousand times sleazier than the general public already suspected.

Edwards is going to jail. Good. He can council all those inmates that need lawyering. So funny. By the time he gets out his paramour will have spent all his money, and taken his daughter, and fled the country

It's funny, of all the women he could have had an affair with, he choses the nutball who was a train wreck waiting to happen. But he had bad karma going.

Reverand Wright said the Obama's were not really into the Church thing, which shows the lenth of his desire to pander to the congregation for votes. He may not have heard Wrights sermons.........probably had a ipod with his speeches on it running instead.

Put 2 and 2 together

Edwards is NOT a billion air

He paid his mistress 10,000 a MONTH and paid a Million dollar home for her to live in

WHERE DID THE MONEY COME FROM Not from Edwards private bank account.

The sad thing is that the child from this affair will live with the stigma all her life.

Same situation as Obama with Vera Baker and the child she had.

Seems it a Liberal democratic thing. Free sex no morals

Campaign funds as to be used for campaigning ONLY

The headline is obviously true, and yet beside the point. This is a show trial, intended to publicly humiliate Edwards and destroy what remains of his career in politics and possibly even in law. It was a set piece brought about by a ReTHUGlican persecut...er, prosecutor...who was out to get Edwards from day one.

How can we tell? Because of the large amount of time spent dragging out "scandalous" testimony about the affair and his out-of-wedlock child, and the little time spent discussing the merits of the case, which has to do with misuse of campaign funds.

There is NO evidence he's guilty of the latter, but as I say, that was never the point.

A disgraceful trial right from the start.

You're a liar as usual, spouting the opposite of the truth. Liberals have ALWAYS stood for free speech, and Conservatives tried to restrict it.

ALWAYS.

If this was your sandbox, you'd be sh--ting in it...LOL
