Amen!!!

  1. The late comedian George Carlin was the MAN...the King of Comedy. His incisive, often biting, acerbic wit...entertained and enlightened generations of appreciative audiences world-wide. His quip regarding lawyers, judges and politicians was ( is ) spot-on. Truth and Honor are noble attributes not to be found in the hearts of these reprehensible rascals, for there is no truth nor honor in them. William Shakespeare's character, the errant knight Sir John Falstaff, was spot-on when he said "Kill all the lawyers." Lawyers, judges, politicians and their officious, self-serving sychophantic toadies...are the bane of every decent society. Lawyers, judges and politicians, trained in the ways of obfuscation, seek not to reveal the truth but, rather, to twist it, to spin it...to conceal it. There is, again, no truth or honor in them. This is not a new phenomenon but, rather, an ancient one. The Roman statesman and historian, Tacitus, ca. A.D. 130, observed: "The more corrupt the State, the more numerous the laws." He, too, was spot-on. Most laws, after all, are enacted by the socio-political elites of their time. The laws they enact, as history reveals, are not for the benefit of the common weal, i.e., for the common public good but, rather, for their own self-serving benefit and the benefit of their equally self-serving, corrupt cronies.

  2. In the words of Jesus, "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered". Luke 11:52.
