Why Would A President And His Attorney General Place Thousands Of Weapons In Criminal Hands Of Another Country?
President Obama'S And Eric Holder Placed Thousands Of Taxpayer-Funded Assault Rifles In The Hands Of Mexican Narcotraficos Under Their Operation Fast And Furious, That Will Be Killing Many Thousands Of Innocent People For Years To Come.
I Can Understand Liberal Desire To Sacrifice Thousands Of Lives They Consider Worthless, To Create A Public Outcry That Would Enable Further Federal Restrictions Of Firearms, But Could Another Reason Be To Further Destabilize Mexico, So That It Too Can Be Collapsed And Rebuilt With Another Form Of Government?
What Are Various Reasons President Obama And Attorney General Holder Would Want To Arm Criminals In Our Neighboring Country Of Mexico.
Because he sold out to the Federal Reserve, Wachovia was busted for laundering money in 2009 and became "Wells Fargo" I guess we are supposed to forget. 400 Billion dollars in Laundering money and 20 thousand lives lost. And now Holder and Obama are sending Guns down there.
It was reported by alternative media (of course, who else?) that the gun problems in Mexico were actually a result of the billions of dollars cartels make per year, with the help of our largest financial institutions who are more than happy to launder their drug money, and the fact that they will stop at nothing to acquire the weapons. As it turns out, most of the guns being smuggled into Mexico come from countries other than the United States, including Russia and China.
Difference Between Law Schools?
I’M A College Sophomore, And I’M Considering Law School After Graduation. Currently In New York For College But I’M Originally From The West Coast. The Two Schools That I’M Shooting For Is Either Stanford Or Berkeley. Stanford Is Ranked Higher But Is There Any Difference Between The Two Schools. Will It Be Easier To Get Jobs From Stanford? How Important Is Rank?
As a practicing California attorney and Stanford law alum, I can tell you that the difference with respect to job prospects after graduation is very minimal. While its true that some firms simply don’t hire graduates of lower ranked schools, Stanford and Boalt Hall (Berkeley’s Law School) have consistently been ranked in the top 10 schools in the country. Any firm recruiting at Stanford will also be recruiting at Boalt. You will earn the same and your work will also be evaluated the same.
The one area where going to a higher ranked school may have an impact is if you decide to practice very far away (geographically) from the location of your law school.
My friends from law school who wanted to practice in New York or DC had no problems finding jobs. Similarly, while my firm mostly hires graduates from CA schools, new associates from Yale, Harvard, Columbia, NYU, etc. is not uncommon. However, we don't have associates from other highly ranked but non-elite law school from outside California. While I know for a fact Boalt grads are practicing out east, it just seems to me that fewer Boalt grads move east. This may be attributed to a greater personal desire from Stanford grads to practice east or it may be a result of Stanford’s higher ranking. If it can be attributed to Stanford's rank, then its a very minimal bump. I still think that a JD from Boalt will not harm you in anyway. My hunch is that your academic record in school and how well you interview will have a bigger impact on your job prospects than whether your law degree says Stanford or Boalt. Now, I’m not in a position to make hiring decisions, but I’ve been at the same firm for 5 years and I’ve had discussions with partners who do make hiring decisions.
Law students sometimes place too much emphasis on which school they go to. Once you get into practice, you will find out that the law school you attended is most helpful in securing your first job. After that, your work performance will determine if you will be invited to stay at that firm, advance toward partner track, or if your work product will allow you to secure positions at larger and more prestigious firms. While my firm does not hire new law graduates from any school ranked lower than 30, we have several attorneys in the firm from lower ranked schools that came to us as lateral hires from other firms. Usually, they are very competent attorneys with proven track records. While rankings are important, your job prospects will ultimately be dictated by your abilities.
Ah, yes from the poster below I can see how my answer might give you the impression that ranking does not matter. My comment deals with differences in rank within the top 10 law schools.The law student below is absolutely correct when he says rankings matter. They do and thats just a fact of the legal profession.
Social Security. To Swap Attorneys Before Or After Appeals Council?
I Am In The Process Of Moving.
Whether It'S Better To File With Existing Attorney, Then Move?
Or Move, Then File With An Attorney In That City?
Please Help Me Decide.
Even though you are moving there is no reason at this point to switch attorneys. I'd stick with the attorney you have because the Appeals Council Review is merely a paper review. No one has to appear before a judge or any other employee of the Social Security Administration. The odds of it being approved at the Appeals Council Review level are slim to none. The Appeals Council Review is the last decision to be made by Social Security. The next, and last, step of the appeals process is to file an appeal with the US Federal District Court. Why don't you talk to your attorney and ask him/her if he thinks pursuing it beyond the Appeal Council Review level would result in an approval? And if you should decide to follow through on that ask him if you think you need to get a new attorney - you wouldn't need a new attorney, for example, if you will be moving within the same federal court district jurisdiction.
However, he would probably recommend that you get a new attorney if you will be moving out of the jurisdiction. As good as he may be he wouldn't be as good as a good attorney in the new jurisdiction who would be familiar with the local (and new) social security office you will be dealing with.
If I Drive Under The Influence....?
With Somebody Elses Car And Our Child In The Backseat, But I Know Im Drunk, I Get A Slap On The Wrist And A Fine To Pay, Mybe Some Probation. Is That Really It? Any Comments..
You're underestimating the penalties and personal inconvenience...
Fine: Up to $5,000 (Maybe more in some states since it can be a higher penalty if there's a child in the car)
Court costs: Between $50 and $1,000 depending upon your city, county, or state court. Even more, if you go to trial and request a jury!
Attorneys fees: $1,500 minimum, or more.
Drivers License restriction, suspension or revocation depending upon the circumstances
Court-ordered driving school (at your cost) if an accident is involved
Court ordered alcohol abuse classes (at your cost...and can be as much as 1-2 times per week for several months)
Court-ordered community service hours (between 0 and 500+ hours of work for which you DON'T get paid)
Probation for 1 to 5 years (You pay the state fees for the probation officer to administer your case)
In some cities, counties, or states, you can also be ordered to do jail time for a first offense. In Phoenix, AZ for example you can be sentenced to 6 months to a year in jail for a FIRST offense! (...and when in jail, you do NOT collect a paycheck...how do you support your family?)
What Is Your Opinion Illegal Files Federal Lawsuit Claims Local Indigent Defense System Fails Defendants?
A Federal Lawsuit Claims Houston County’S Indigent Defense System Is Too Flawed To Provide Defendants With Adequate Legal Representation And Asks A Judge To End The Program And Award Monetary Damages.
The Suit Was Filed In U.S. District Court Last Week By Three Dothan Attorneys And An Attorney From Mobile On Behalf Of Cenobio Sanchez, An Illegal Immigrant Who Pleaded Guilty To Murder In Houston County In 2009; And Tina Mikel, Who Pleaded Guilty To Unlawful Possession Of A Controlled Substance In 2009.
The Suit, However, Is Seeking Class Action Status, Meaning It Could Apply To All Defendants Who Have Received Legal Representation Since 2004 When Houston County Adopted A “Contract” System For Attorneys Who Represent Criminal Defendants Unable To Pay For Their Own Lawyer. No Ruling Has Been Made On The Class Action Request.
Defendants Include Gov. Robert Bentley, The Director Of The Alabama Administrative Office Of Courts, Houston County’S Presiding Circuit Judge, And The Members Of Houston County’S Indigent Defense Commission.
They have a chance to win the new US lottery - a class action suit. It's all about the MONEY.
