I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace;
that two become a law firm, and three or more become a Congress.

And by GOD, I have had THIS Congress!......

3. Hey, CalPeg!
Rent the film '1776' sometime.

You'll love it.

Think of me when John Adams utters this line. It comes at the very beginning of the film. B-)

I know more lawyers who've helped people than lawyers who've hurt people. Just sayin.

6. Yeah lawyers get a bum rap.
It's like the old saying,"All lawyers are scum except mine."

7. Okay, everybody,
I was quoting a Broadway musical. I had to get that in about lawyers so I could move on to Congress. Everybody stay frosty! B-)

10. I understand.
But if things in our country don't change, there are many, many of us who're going to be thankful for good, honest, progressive attorneys who'll take payments. :shrug:

11. And considering John Adams was a lawyer himself,
I don't think he meant any offense. :)

12. Thank you, deadparrot.
Sheesh! :eyes: The threads I start that don't sink like a stone get me head-bonked for dissing lawyers.

Hey, I like lawyers myself. Got a few in the family (in-laws) and they are wonderful liberals. And the American Bar Association leans left. Good enough for me.

13. What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A good start.
