Did You Know There Was a Day Called “Law Day”?

It happened on May 1st, 2013.

Did you get “law day” off with pay? I’m thinking no, but I’m also thinking we’re not a nation of laws anymore.

From Ralph Nader

Unless we fight back against the 1 or 2 percent: We suck!

NO GUNS!!

Update: Oops; I misread the first of Nader’s article and thought Eisenhower had established “Law Day”. He established the ABA which created the holiday. I had to get rid of most of my original post. I’m glad nobody has commented yet. Is there an embarrassment emoticon?

    I love Ralph Nader. I’ve seen him live twice. Would have made a great president!

    He would have made a great president the way James Callaghan was a great PM.

    brew-who:

    Don’t recall the name.

    Funny how labor leaders fade into obscurity.

    Love how Margaret Thatcher is getting her just due.

    Lefty who ran the UK into the third world ground.

    Thatcher rescued them.

    A rather simplistic assessment to lay the least.

    Er, say

    Historical, not simplistic:

    “Wilson handed over the reins to Callaghan in March 1976 and the scorching summer that followed saw pressure mounting on sterling, even though it was by now a floating currency. Eventually, the UK had to swallow a package of spending cuts to secure a loan from the IMF. Callaghan lost power, narrowly, to Margaret Thatcher in 1979, but the humiliation of the IMF bailout haunted Labour for more than 15 years.”

    It’s a good thing Thatcher and Reagan rode in on horses to save us from those unions.

    Fast-forward thirty three years.

    Yeah, that worked really well. :(

    Fast forward 30 years of inept Fed management post-Volcker, cronyism, corruption, open borders, political correctness,…..

    Yes you’re right, after Reagan and Thatcher we have done a good job of screwing things up.

    Warren pushes on failure to prosecute banks

    Echoing language of Occupy activists like former Wall Street V.P. Alexis Goldstein, Warren stressed how failing to bring banks to trial can create a culture of impunity. She asked the federal agency heads to respond to her concerns, writing:

    I believe strongly that if a regulator reveals itself to be unwilling to take large financial institutions all the way to trial – either because it is too timid or because it lacks resources — the regulator has a lot less leverage in settlement negotiations… If large financial institutions can break the law and accumulate millions in profits and, if they get caught, settle by paying out of those profits, they do not have much incentive to follow the law.

    I will follow Warren and Grayson into non-violent battle!

    How they won their elections will always be a mystery to me.

    Have no cash these days, but have signed every damned petition I could.

      Warren? You mean let’s repeal the medical device tax Warren? That Warren?

  12. #13 by cav on May 15, 2013 - 10:15 am

    No, WarrenTerror asshole.

      Warren terrifies the right people. Her seriousness isn’t faked either. Extremely refreshing to see.

      • #15 by brewski on May 15, 2013 - 5:06 pm

        Too bad she is as dumb as a back of rocks.

        • #16 by Larry Bergan on May 15, 2013 - 5:53 pm

          You’re just upset because she has a bigger penis then you do.

          She uses her real name, which might get her killed, but that doesn’t make her dumb; it makes her a hero.

          What’s the use. I’m typing to somebody who wouldn’t know the definition of a hero if he looked it up in the dictionary. :(

            Tell it to “cav”

            brewski:

            I’ve told you before; LISTEN UP!

            I don’t care if people who tell the truth are using a moniker!

          • #19 by brewski on May 16, 2013 - 6:59 am

            I only tell the Truth. No one has ever shown that anything I have ever said was not.

    Now boys, move along. No looking back. There’ll be future crimes and rumors of crimes to get stirred up about.
