  1. the modern version is milking the people wandering around without a lawyer brand on their hide. If you don’t have a lawyer on your STAFF, you are an open target… fresh meat. Out west they used to shoot cattle rustlers and horse thieves … some of those old practices were so efficient.

  2. “shoot cattle rustlers, pubilc whippings and stocks?

    Get help jb, before it’s too late! 🙂

  3. 🙂 Somewhere “due process” turned into a bonanza for lawyers. A quick and speedy trial became “tied up in the courts”. Fiduciary responsibility became “not worth suing over”. I could go on but I don’t have any new 19th century ideals to suggest. lol

    Nice new format for your blog … did you get any stimulus or tax breaks for this? 🙂

  4. Thanks jb.

    This is my pledge to my gentle readers: no tax dollars will ever be used for the operation of QC Examiner. 🙂
