Don’t You Just Love Lawyers?

I saw a commercial the other day that floored me.  The lawyer said that we should never feel bad for the other driver.  The other guy’s insurance will pay, not the other driver.  If the other guy doesn’t have insurance we won’t sue him.

Dah!

Now that makes sense.  The lawyer just might be rather smart but, clearly, he thinks I’m dumb.  Just what kind of lawyer will go after someone who has no means of paying the judgment?

The truth of the matter is that there is one thing that the lawyer is interested in, his forty percent.  Therefore, he will only sue someone with money or someone with insurance.  It would be stupid to go after someone who has no way to pay.  If he did, then even if he won, he would still lose.  He would be out the time and legal expenses.  …and his forty percent of nothing would still be nothing.


I have nothing to back it up with, but my best guess is that one of the biggest causes of the increase in insurance are lawyers.  Indeed, if you take the lawyers out of the settlements, the cost of insurance would likely decrease by a third, maybe more.

Certainly, this is true about auto insurance, but maybe even truer in other things as well.  Consider the doctor.  He must carry insurance to cover all suits, especially those that have no basis.  Most suits are settled to prevent the larger court costs.  The doctor says, “I didn’t do anything wrong.”

His insurance company says “It doesn’t matter.  Settle or you are on your own.”

It happens every day.  The doctor does nothing wrong and the lawyer walks off with 10 or 20-thousand dollars.  In most cases, the lawyer knows he has no case but he sues anyway, knowing the doctor will settle.

Do you think this doesn’t affect you?  Think again.  A big part of those doctor’s fees goes to pay the malpractice insurance.  Every time you pay a doctor, or the health insurance premium, some of it goes to those lawyers.

Every time you buy a somewhat dangerous product like a lawnmower or even a toaster, some of what you pay is going to go to line the pockets of those lawyers.  Every time you buy medicine, guess what.  Pharmacies must pay for insurance too.  Sometimes, they don’t have enough insurance and they go bankrupt paying the judgments.

Lawyers continually go in search of prey, just as a tiger shark.  Then, when they find it, you see the ad on the TV the next day.  They dare not delay.  They know if they do, some other lawyer will beat them to the pay dirt.

On the other side of the coin, some companies knowingly do things wrong.  Well, actually it isn’t the company.  It is some person or persons within the company.  So, the big corporation goes bankrupt and all the employees are without jobs.  Meanwhile, the character who truly caused the problem retires with a million-dollar golden parachute.  The only people who walk away unscathed are the lawyers, both sides, and the culprit who took the short cut to save a dime or two in the manufacturing process.

By the way, the public loses too.  The product that was being made was a good one.  Now we must do without it.  Don’t you just love lawyers?


By the way, the main reason it works this way is that it is mainly lawyers who write the laws.  They write the laws to benefit the laws, not the folks like you and me.

The Question Not Asked

Over the years I’ve noticed a pattern when politicians are interviewed.  Frequently, when they are asked a question they don’t want to answer, they reply to a question not asked.  The reply is often a reply to a question to which they would rather reply and it invariably is far more wordy than necessary.  That way, they only talk about what they want to and it minimizes the time for other questions.   …and by the way, no question is ever answered yes or no.  The reply is far too brief allowing for more questions.

For instance;

Q: On a clear day, is the sky blue?

Politician’s reply: Science is an important subject and we should all pay attention to…  and so on and so on.

A proper reply: Yes.

Definition of a Lie

We now have proof that the dummycrats knew there was no collusion.

We also know that, from the beginning, they have been preaching that there was colluding by candidate Trump and then President Trump.  The two things are mutually exclusive.  Both cannot be true at the same time.

To me, that sort of looks like lying.  Maybe they have their own definition, but, if we go by the dictionary, we must say that the dummycrats have been lying.

Then again, we could try to cover it up a little.  We could say they told a little fib.  On the other hand, we could say they have been a little less than truthful.

Personally, I call it a whopper.  Moreover, had Clinton won the election, the lie would have been accepted as absolute truth, at least, by most.  On the other hand, to the mass media, it is historical fact.

Of the liars, Schiff, has to be worst.  He knew there was no proof and yet he insisted he had some.  Moreover, he misrepresented the phone call.  Worst yet, when confronted face to face with the truth, he refuses to admit the lie.

Though I can’t prove it, I believe Obama was the originator of the lie.  For this, I refer you back to one of my earlier posts, the one about incarcerating a president.  I see no need to rewrite it here.  Regardless, even if we had a ton of proof of his wrongdoing, Obama won’t go to prison.  At worst, he and many of his cohorts will be put under house arrest.  The earned imprisonment is simply impractical.

In such a situation, the secret service agents would take on a second task as prison guards.  If I weren’t so old, it is something I would eagerly volunteer for.  They wouldn’t even need to pay me.

Damage Assessment

In one of my previous posts, I spoke of a conspiracy.  Many may not believe it.  Many may not think of it as being that serious.  Regardless, it is a fact that it has caused problems.  First and foremost, it has given The United States Justice Department, especially the FBI  a black eye.

My best guess is that the FBI will never regain have the respect that it once had.  This is a shame considering that it was only the leadership that has caused the stench.  Along with the loss of respect, there is a loss of trust.  I don’t speak for others, but my attitude has changed.

A few years ago, I would have gone way out of my way to help the FBI.  Today, not so much.  They want to question me, they will have to give me a statement that they will not charge me with lying.  By the way, I would suggest that anyone reading this do the same.

To be sure the activities are far reaching.  When I hear that someone is being prosecuted by Justice, I will wonder about their guilt.  I may even suspect that there is no evidence.  They certainly had none against Gen. Flynn.

When a dummycrat representative stands up before the world as makes a absolute statement, I will not believe him.  This will be so regardless of how many witnesses he produces.  Might I remind you that Rep. Schiff had many witnesses that backed his story…until they were under oath.  Then, what they had to say was the complete opposite of Schiff’s statement.

May I also remind one and all that we almost had a takeover of our government.  A president was impeached without an ounce of evidence.  The recent releases of the testimonies previously kept secret by Schiff verify that.

Finally, the dummycrats have been a constant hindrance to everything the president has tried to do, in many cases without reason other than to make him look bad.  If the president had not been so greatly apposed, we would be far better off today.  Every thing he has done or tried to do is for the betterment of the nation.

As for that judge that is trying Flynn’s case, let me paraphrase an old saying.  As we look at the hem of his robe, we now see that his bias is showing.  He really should be embarrassed by this exposure, but I doubt he is.  So, now we can’t trust the federal judges either.  (I suppose that ought not surprise any of us)

Deals or Rubber Hoses

I am something of a Law and Order fanatic.  I guess I have watched almost every episode two or three times.  When I watch an episode, I can remember virtually the whole thing after just a few minutes.

I pretty much stay with the original version.  I don’t particularly care for the actors in the spinoffs.  I find one of them particularly obnoxious as he seems to be an expert on just about everything, though I must admit that such knowledge just might come in handy for a real detective.

Naturally, it would be ludicrous to think any of it all that believable, but I’m sure they do try to keep it reasonably real.  The problem, of course, is that they must always solve the crime and convict the culprit in court in one hour.  If the real police and prosecutors could manage that, we wouldn’t have near the backup in the court systems.

However, one thing did catch my attention in one of the episodes and I think it is worth considering.

They caught the culprit and they offered him a deal.  If he pleaded guilty, they would let him live.

Now that sounds reasonable.  The man keeps his life and the state saves a bunch of money and time.  Then the culprit spoils it all by saying he preferred the rubber hose.  His chances of coming out alive were far better.

Of course, he was referencing the days when the police used physical force to “beat” the confession out of a suspect.  Nowadays, the courts won’t allow such methods.  If it is determined that such methods are used in acquiring a confession, the judge will throw it out.  Moreover, any evidence acquired during the session is also disallowed, something about a poisonous tree.

I get it.  Beating a confession out of a man is barbaric.  Moreover, all it really proves is that he can’t stand the pain.  during those days, it is very probable that a man or two was sent to prison simply because he couldn’t tolerate the torture.

Then again, is it better that we send an innocent man to prison because he fears dying prematurely.  For sure, some people are terrified by the thought of death.  (not sure, but I think there is a name for the fear)  In other words, it is possible that if you threaten the right man with death, then he’ll confess to anything.

As the man in the show said, I think I would prefer the rubber hose.  It is less permanent.

Either way, there is something about a confession.  If a man is convicted before a jury, he stands a better chance of having the verdict overturned than the man who confesses.  There is a difference between a confessed killer and a convicted killer.

There are many reasons the courts don’t like re-trying a convicted man.  The man who confesses, much more.  This is especially true if a lot of time has passed.  Evidence gets stale and memories fade.  Worse yet, witnesses might pass.  A true fair re-trial becomes impossible.

So, Gen. Flynn sits before his accusers and they say, “If you don’t confess…”  Flynn refuses.  So they threaten to put his son prison.  So he confesses.

I don’t know about you, but if I were Flynn, I would prefer the rubber hose.  I don’t think I would want my son going to prison.

So, does Flynn’s confession prove his guilt or does it prove his love for his son.  Would he be a better man if he let his son go to prison.

A Whole of Conspiring Going On

There was a movie, “The Conspiracy Theory.”  (It’s a good movie.  If you haven’t seen it, you should.)  In it, a man whose sanity was a little suspect, proved a massive conspiracy.  I have a copy of it, a DVD and I have watched it a number of times.

The first time I watched it, it seemed very unbelievable.  Now, I have second thoughts.

Moreover, it has come to my attention that we are living in a real historic time.  The conspiracy that we have seen unfold before us is far greater than the one in the movie.

The list of conspirators is a very long list, so I will list them in groups.  First, there is the intelligence group: CIA and the rest of that alphabet soup.  Then the congressmen.  We certainly can’t overlook The Justice Department.  Of course, that would include the FBI, which includes likely a dozen or so high level personnel.

Some would suggest that Obama was part of it, maybe Biden as well.  They may or may not have instigated it but they definitely knew and did nothing to stop it.  To be sure, Obama was part of the group that wanted the Paris Accord.  Also, he likely would be very happy with a one world government.

The largest group was the press, those who were constantly quoting anonymous sources.  It is amazing how they managed to suggest all sorts of lies in bold print on the first page of every paper and they put the retractions well buried inside, if at all.

At least, to some degree, federal judges have tried to further the efforts of the conspirators.  Many times, they have chosen to make decisions against President Trump.  In one of the most recent ones, The Supreme Court decided unanimously against the lower court and in favor of the President.  Even the liberal agreed the lower courts were wrong.  The problem is that the lower courts managed a delay tactic and they knew it.

 

Every conspiracy has a purpose.  In this case, it had multiple purposes, but they all sprang from one goal, global control.  In the process, they knew they would have to destroy or circumvent the constitution, especially the first four amendments.  Something of a absurdity, they used the amendments in their attempt to destroy them, such as the freedom of speech and the press.  No one dares to say anything politically incorrect or they are immediately dragged through the mire of the justice of the press.

It also relied on ceding our sovereignty.  This was to be accomplished through the Paris accord and the TPP.  The trick is that any treaty with any other country, if approved by congress, supersedes the constitution.  Oh…and by the way.  This was all coincidental to ceding our sovereignty to the U.N.

The whole process was going along swimmingly for them.  Then, President Trump came along and became president.  Their first big disaster was when he withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and they started realizing the prognosis.  President Trump was not a globalist and he did not intend to let the globalist have their way.  Then, of course, he withdrew from the Paris Accord.  He saw right through the fog of the ecologists and chose not to cede any part of our sovereignty to the treaty.

Even before he took the oath of office, the conspirators were busy trying to destroy him and his administration.  One by one they have been busy trying to pick off members of his cabinet, this while setting traps and roadblocks.  The colluders knew that if the new judges believed in The Constitution, their efforts might be set back a decade or two.  Already, they realize some of their fears.  While the liberal lower courts continue to rewrite the law, The Supreme Court has now made several decisions in his favor and, ultimately, in the favor of our country.

Now it would appear that the documentation of the above is being exposed.  In case after case, the dummycrats, in public, tell of the Russian collusion.  However, in secure sessions, not one of them admits to knowing any anything about Russian collusion.

So, they either lied to us, the public, as part of a conspiracy or they lied to Congress under oath.  Somehow, I am more prone to believe that they were lying to us.  Lying to the public might have consequences, but it is not against the law.

In summary, it would appear that the only collusion going on was by the dummycrats.  Only, it is legally called conspiracy.

The historic fact is that we barely avoided a coup d’état by the globalists.  If they had succeeded, there would soon be no more constitution.  Our national government would soon be replaced by some kind of one world bureaucracy, possibly the U.N.

It is no wonder they hate President Donald Trump.  He foiled their takeover, at least for the short term.  If the dummycrats should regain control (and power) it would not be long before they would be right back on track.  President Trump will have only made enough of a bump in the road to slow them a few years.

I hope and pray that doesn’t happen.  I don’t like movies where the bad guys win.

 

Oh!  One more little detail.  Guess who is footing the bill for this conspiracy.  That’s right.  We, the tax payers.  (This includes all that was spent in framing Gen. Flynn.  It was likely 4 or 5 million dollars, maybe more.)

Don’t expect any of these conspirators to pay the price for their dirty deeds.  Dummycrats never go to jail, only republicans.

An Instant Change In Direction

I have been told a time or two that nothing can make an instantaneous change in direction.  For Instance, consider a baseball thrown at 100 mph.  After it is hit by a bat, it goes 100 mph in virtually the opposite direction.

The ball takes some time to make that change in direction.  Moreover, at some instant in time, the ball stands still.  I suppose, for a fraction of a second, the ball must decelerate to nothing.  Then, it spends, likely about the same time accelerating to 100 mph, but in the opposite direction.

Of course, we humans see it as instantaneous.  It all happens so fast we can’t follow the change.  Even the mathematician would have a difficult time with it.  Determining just how long it took the ball to make the turnaround would be very difficult with even the best slow-motion camera.  I don’t know.  I don’t know if it could be measured or calculated at all.

One thing I do know.  The change in direction is slow compared to those dummycrats when it comes to determining if a woman has been sexually abused or not.  Consider, the Clintons.  He admitted guilt and lying about it.  Then, his wife and all the dummycrats got behind him and said, “It’s okay.”  …and of course, any other woman that made any accusations were instantly turned into trailer-park trash.  Hillary simply waved her magic wand and the threat to her husband disappeared faster than that homer I was considering earlier.

Then, Judge Cavanaugh is accused of all sorts of sordid things with absolutely no evidence…

BANG!!

The ball instantly stops and heads the opposite way.  The man is, of course, absolutely guilty and should never be allowed to be dogcatcher.

Then Bidden is accused with some evididence…

BANG!!

The ball reverses again, this time faster.


I’ve figured it out.  Justice is far simpler than I ever thought.  If the man has a D after his name, he didn’t do it.  Even if he did, it doesn’t matter.

If the man has an R after his name, he is automatically guilty and should be hung from the nearest tree.

That settles it.  If I am ever accused of anything, I will make sure there is a D after my name.  That will result in a short trial, if any, even if I’m guilty.

I figure that a D after my name would give me a license to do all sorts of things.

Then again, I wouldn’t be the first to use that tactic.  Somehow or other, I don’t think I would be the last.

If you don’t think it works, consider the Keeting five.  In this case, McCain and four dummycrats got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.  The result was the downfall of the savings and loan system.  Had it not been for the four dummycrats, McCain would have gotten what he deserved, prison time.  Then again, they could hardly throw him in jail and let the others go.  So they let all five go.

Unlike most, I remember the incident.  I was in my mid-twenties. I had money in Lincoln Savings, one of the institutions McCain robbed.  (only he used no gun or mask)  I thought sure that they would all go to jail.  It was the first time I got a good look at how things really work in politics.

The way things are today, they would have still let the others go free.  However, because McCain had an R after his name, he would have gone to prison, or at least he would have lost his seat in the Senate.
