Due to time constraints, I’m turning the blog today over to guest blogger, GrayWriter
Hi. Gray writer here, making a guest appearance on this blog, and here’s’ the truth. (Courtesy of the holder of this blog.)
Do you know what judges are? No, not that! Judges are only lawyers with good political connections. Federal judges have really good political connections. Supreme Court judges have supernaturally good political connections. Appointed judgeships are always political. Lawyers elected to judgeships must have these connections and/or come from law firms that have the political connections, even if the election is “non-partisan.” Lawyers in the court room are always acquainted with the lawyer/judge.
What does this mean to you? Just that you are not part of the “legal system” and need not expect “justice.” You get “law” but not justice. The two do not go together.
Example: all of the lawyers that sued the tobacco companies- State Attorney Generals or outside firms, during the Clinton administration were all Democrats or big contributors to the Democrat Party. The purpose of the suits was to reward the lawyers, advance the interests of the Democrat Party, and put money into State coffers to fund “social programs” which could not otherwise be afforded. However, the money paid by the tobacco companies to the States was set to decline as the number of smokers declined. Thus, if, eventually, no smokers-then no money for the “social programs” which means that the taxpayers will have to pick up the tab through higher taxes. Brilliant, isn’t it?
By the way, did you know that the so-called “oil crisis” in the ‘70’’s was caused by the war between the Arabs and the Israelis. The Arabs tried to cut off the oil to Israel and the good ole USA contrived to get oil to them through 3rd parties. For example, Alaskan crude went to Japan and the Middle East oil destined for Japan was side shipped to Israel. Meanwhile Americans had to endure long lines at gas stations, price controls on gasoline and crude oil which artificially raised the prices to consumers and the Arabs and OPEC got the blame. Brilliant wasn’t it? I know-I was working for the Department of Energy at the time!
One more. Did you know that the mandatory headrests, seat belts, and airbags were the result of the auto casualty insurance companies lobbying of the Federal government, both Congress and the Executive branch bureaucracy? The purpose was to cut the claims costs incurred for such thing as whiplash, facial injury on the steering wheel, and going through the window shield. All bad things for sure, but was it really the province of the Federal government to make us take care of ourselves? Where in the enumerated powers in the Constitution do you find that authority? The insurance proponents and the “safety advocates” said that auto injuries “cost all of us.” Nobody had the brains to ask how that was figured out and how much per person. Know why nobody asked? They did not have the brains to. I know, I was with Tri-State Insurance Company and Home Insurance company. I know ‘um. Joan Claybrook was appointed by Jimmy Carter to be the NHTSA czar. She is the one who jammed the air bag gimmick down the throats of the auto industry despite the warnings that air bag technology was not advanced enough to make them safe. As a result, people died. Some years later she apologized for “overselling” the air bag idea. That was a comfort to the survivors of the dead, I’m sure. By the way, Claybrook was a protégée of Ralph Nader. A little man with nothing going for him except the worship of pinheads.
That’s enough for today, kiddies.
More truths later if you can take it.
