    The irony is...I do believe you are a lawyer...just a poorly trained, unethical, bad one.

    I retract this partially.  You may be a fine lawyer in your professional life, and do a competent job.

    I'm refering primarily to what you write on this site...your consistently flawed legal analysis, your advocating people do unethical and illegal things, etc.

    By the way...a bit of advice.  Merely saying that you are "not giving legal advice" does not inoculate you from liability if you encourage someone to commit a crime.  I can't really comment much on it, but if I were you'd I'd scale back on this type of thing.

      to be an expert.

      As for my background, I support myself, rent, etc..

      So let's see what my choices were.

      A.  Go to a rock solid law school full time and pay a fortune for 3 years and have no job during the time and be unable to pay rent OR

      B.  Go to a lousy law school (and it was) part time, work during the days, get approximately 1/3rd of my tuition paid for so I could use that money to live and because my resume/Lsat score boasted their profile average and be comfortable in my own abilities to learn what needs to be learned using my innate intelligence, hard work, people skills, and personality.

      Hey I like being the underdog.  We all make choices of avenues to pursue and the time to put in it.

      If I decided to put in the time for example I'd have been the United States Scrabble Champion.  (It would take about 40 hrs a week for 6 months.  I was ranked very high after 2 tournaments and a 12-2 record which should have been 14-0 had it not been for some stupid mistakes which were a result of me not knowing changes that had been made to the scrabble dictionary.)  (Was kind of fun wiping the floor of people with Ivy education's and walking intellectual circles around them -- been there done that many times over in life.)

      Please feel free to underestimate my intelligence and ability to make a difference.  Please feel free not to take me serious.  If you truly are a libertarian who thinks that MCcain is "way to the left of me" and you have no intention of voting for McCain or Obama, you should admire someone like me. I'm sure you've read books like the Fountainhead  Then again are you really a libertarian because if you were, then you probably find the likes of all those RW talk show hosts and the Republican Party unpalatable and be voting for Bob Barr or Ron Paul.

        Think of the movie Good Will Hunting without those particular emotional issues.

        I much prefer hanging with the salt of the earth than the ivory tower elitists.

        oh as for lawyers.  Some very well known ones in my family.  They teach me well.

          Good Will Hunting, one of my favorite movies, is about a kid with Einstein like in a million intellect.  And that's what you're comparing yourself to? You're more like Will Hunting with the emotional issues and not the intelligence.

          Dave, I'm sorry...but you are narcissistic. Why do you constantly make these posts announcing to the world how intelligent your are?  If you are truly a genius on that level, it should show in your writing, and your legal analysis.  You should not try to have to broadcast it.

          And frankly, it doesn't show.  I'm not questioning that you're a reasonably bright guy, but genius?  I'm not seeing it.
