"the squeaky wheel gets the grease"
is how the political system is supposed to work,
expresses the wisdom of complaining
and of demanding BETTER
It is not limited in its application to political governance,
but it is valid in all areas of human endeavor.
I 've ofen added to that the wisdom of shaking the tree,
to make the proverbial fruit fall out, as distinct from
docile, silent quiescence; i.e., the loudmouth is more likely
to get what he wants than a timid less aggressive man.
and the legal system is supposed to be insulated from that so that
it can devote itself to justice.
Let 's not forget that we can use the legal system
to acquire that to which we r entitled,
if we do it accurately.

Since (and including) childhood I have been
. I advocate that each

Kennedy's foul, collectivist demand
that we ask not what I can do for u;
ask what u can do for me
to optimize Individual, hedonic aggrandizement.
We shud judge our lives by how well we have
crammed them full of personal
joy and beauty.
(If the collective benefits from that, we can put up with it.)
Please note both my anti
and my anti
I dont know how you can resist crying yourself to sleep at night
given what has become of the cause you devoted your life to.....
Hawkeye, let 's get something straight:
when I was a practicing trial attoney,
I was a hired gun
The cause to which I devoted my life
was and IS maximal exploitation of the collective
by the Individual citizen for his optimal hedonic effect
Sound reasoning is employed to evoke those results.
this case is straight politics,
it never had anything to do with the law or the seaking of justice.
; the Governor was and is afraid of race riots. Obviously,
he sacrificed & subordinated Zimmy 's convenience
to this harassment,
to satisfy the blacks that were jumping (e.g., Sharpton).
Obama threatened him; I dunno.
I think that it was more than obvious to the Governor (who is not
that there 'd be no chance of a conviction in this factual state of affairs.
