Lawyer bashing is for bigots

I am a lawyer so I resent bigots who say unkind things about lawyers. Even though some nasty remarks may be based on a bad experience, many seem to be simply envy, cynical or just mindless repetition of some prattle heard somewhere.

Sweeping generalizations are always questionable. I have met many fine people who happened to be lawyers. And some despicable ones who were lawyers. Same is true in every profession.

Try replacing the slurs about lawyers with the words "Jews" or "Blacks" or "women" and the prejudice bigotry shines through.

Human stupidity is all too common but still not praiseworthy. Those who lack sense will criticize what they do not understand and seek to make cheap jokes without thinking how lawyers protect the cherished freedoms of our country and protect human rights elsewhere.

What do you call a hundred lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?

What do you call a 100 Nainmos at the bottom of the ocean? A JD is no excuse! You should no better. Perpetuating and encouraging bigotry is a no-no.

As a matter of fact you aren't even allowed to say unkind things about lawyers. And guess who did create that rule? A jewish black woman? I guess not. Blame your kindred colleagues for censorship!

No I've got it all right. Those who claim to love liberty, freedom and America should shout the praises of lawyers. Most of our founding fathers were educated in the law. Lawyers are the ones who provide due process. Without lawyers the entire legal system and government fails to exist. One of the secret strengths of America is its legal system and checks and balances form of government. Which is the work of lawyers. Look at China and Russia. They suffer from a lack of legal due process because they do not have proper independent judges and fair legal systems. Lawyers represent all, the rightfully and wrongfully accused and deserve the support of an enlightened community. Not the scorn of fools.
