Okay, So Why Are We Paying Lawyers in The Office?

November 29, 2011 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, so Attorney General Greg Abbott has hot and cold running lawyers in his office, all of whom are on that dreaded taxpayer dole, which I’m sure is embarrassing to them since they are opposed to taxpayers doles, but apparently they couldn’t get jobs in private enterprise because ….

….. they obviously have no idea how to practice law.

Abbott hired Paul Clement, a noted Supreme Court advocate, to help his office with the case (at a rate of $520 an hour, which he called “a steep discount”). Clement worked with Abbott on a lawsuit over the display of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the state Capitol.

So we taxpayers are paying some writ twit $520 an hour to screw us.

I have an odd idea.  Next time, let’s elect an Attorney General who has been to court before.

Hell, Yes!

Oh hell, yes!  We will most assuredly trade our one for your two.

Speaking of teaching arithmetic — Conservatives are all outraged that Elena Kagan will be sitting in judgment of the Obama health care bill because she was solicitor general when it passed.

Just as easy to recuse would be the Boobsey Twins, Scalia and Thomas.

“The justices were wining and dining at a black-tie fundraiser with attorneys who have pending cases before the court,” Common Cause President Bob Edgar said. “Their appearance and assistance in fundraising for this event undercuts any claims of impartiality and is unacceptable.”

Among those on the official program for the dinner were McConnell and attorney Paul Clement, himself a former solicitor general, who will argue the health care cases as a private lawyer on behalf of a coalition of two dozen states.

Heckfire, I’ll broker that deal quicker than a hiccup.

Signs of the Times

In the Southern tradition of biting off your nose to spite your face department

A Georgia business owner is making it clear that he has significant problems with President Barack Obama.   On the front of his business and the sides of his trucks, he has a sign that says:

“New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.”

“Can’t afford it,” said Bill Looman. “I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.”

Bubba, if you need to hire people, how in God’s name can you not afford it?   If this isn’t living proof that they should start teaching arithmetic in Georgia, I do not know what is.

Thanks to Corine for the heads up.

My Suspicions About Herman Cain

You know how they said that Bill Clinton was the first black President?  Well, it appears that Herman Cain is the first black Bill Clinton.

More ladies.

My Suspicions About Greg Abbott

November 28, 2011 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

As you might have guessed by now, Juanita Jean has no use for Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.  “I never liked him and always will,” she says quite often.

Juanita suspects that the only reason that Greg Abbott did not ask for Justice Department pre-clearance is because he wants to appeal redistricting  to the Supreme Court, asking that they’ll declare the 1965 Civil Rights Act to be unconstitutional.  And this court might do it.

You know, Kayne West was right – Republicans don’t like black people.  They don’t like brown people either.  And having a black person in the White House makes them pretty near crazy.  The 1965 Voting Rights Act is all that stands between them and their quest for Screw You, Buddy! Democracy.

I could be totally wrong.  I’ve been wrong before and it didn’t kill me.  But I don’t think I’m wrong this time.  They don’t want smaller government; George Bush proved that.  They want white good-ole-boy giant government, with everybody else funding it.  They are not going to be happy until they get slavery back.  Hell, Newt almost let the cat out of the bag talking about no child labor laws.

I cannot think of anyone I would rather have arguing for our side that Attorney General Eric Holder.  And I have a feeling that the ghost of Lyndon Johnson is gonna haunt those who mock the courage it took for him to sign that act.
