How is it so many lawyers (60% of Senate and over 40% in House) "represent" you and me?
Recidivists (repeat criminal offenders) provide job security for members of the bar (judges, prosecutors, and trial lawyers) many of whom then proclaim a need for more judges to handle ensuing court backlogs. Taxpayers, of course, foot the bill.
Judge Ponsor’s WSJ opinion piece was published the day after Attorney General Holder called for repeal of laws prohibiting millions of felons from voting, Was it mere coincidence that two lawyers wish to be more lenient to convicted felons? While too many non-violent felons are incarcerated, too many violent recidivists are obviously not being being confined long enough.
The current administration in D.C. has more lawyers on its payroll (federal bureaucracy, the Cabinet, and tsars) than ever before. In fact, P.O.T.U.S., the Veep, Secretary of State, etc. are all lawyers. comfortable so far?
Upwards of 30,000 K-Street lobbyists are also lawyers (in the influential [$$$$] 4th branch of federal government). What countries do they represent? What campaigns do they support? Why don't we know?
Do you automatically assume lawyers are society's 'good guys'? Wrong! Vigilisa stopped tracking crimes like these because they are growing in frequency and magnitude -- she was completely overwhelmed!
Then, there are a growing number of purely criminal (I am above the law) incidents of lawyer crime like these.
Now, can you detect a very slight conflict of interest? Hairdressers would be more representaive of the American public than lawyers. Wake up!
