    And what about the scams being perpetraed by lawyers who are now lurking behind lawsuit proxies and fishing for potential clients alegedly harmed about e.g. vaginal implant devices? And then there are all the lawyers trolling for clients allegedly harmed by all manner of BAD DRUGS, having just returned from a seminar targeting Vioxx, or some other drug so they can collect their FAT FEES. It‘s increasingly obvious that we have far too many lawyers in the United States and that their overabundance has many of them scrambling for work. They would have been far better off learning a useful trade instead of spending their lives as legal vultures making no contribution to society.

    And there‘s Albert Monroe, the idiot visiting professor of "climate change" law at Quinnipiac School of Law. He said:

    "Climate change has immense effects that are wide-ranging."
    Hurricanes will continue to grow physically larger, Monroe predicts. "When you see these humongous storms like Katrina and Sandy, you are seeing a predicted effect of climate change that is already happening," he said.

    The man is a scientific illiterate and a moron. Does he really believe that because globally averaged temperatures rose about three-tenths of a degree Celsius from 1978-1997, followed by 17 years of no increase is the cause of Katrina and other "humongous" storms? Really? In a sane world, this guy wouldn‘t be allowed anywhere near a law school. But, of course, he‘s in sync with the equally ignorant resident of the White House who regularly makes equally absurd statements about climate to advance his socialist agenda.
