So I can either work with the mediation department of the EEOC or with a solo practitioner that does workers compensation defense work.

What do you all think would be the best experience or what would look the best on a resume for trying to get a job with a big firm.

Speaking of abuse, why is it that children who are abused are much more likely to be homosexual. Deviant behavior breeds more deviant behavior.

Ok, lets say I agree. You were born gay and later discovered that fact. Im ok with that. Maybe there is even genetic proof that shows you are more inclined to be attracted to the same sex. Could the same be true for child molesters? Could they be born with the natural tendency to be attracted to people much younger than themselves. Could there even be genetic proof to show that thety are naturally attracted to children. It sounds awful, but could it be true.

Like I said if someone is racist I have a problem with that. If they are just making a joke about one aspect of the culture then learn to laugh about it. Yes it is offensive to say certain things but it is only offensive if someone is offended. Everyone is so afraid of hurting someones feelings. People need to learn not to be offended about the little things. There are some racial statements that should never be made but there are others that are just funny and should be taken that way. Learn to laugh at yourself. There is so must racial tension around because people take themselves so seriously. Black culture has funny aspects, white culture has funny aspects. However it is not ok to make fun of someone for being white or black because we do not choose to be white or black.

However we do choose to be gay or straight so it is ok to make fun of someone for being gay. If you want to be gay thats fine it is your choice, but it is also my choice to say that I think it is stupid. We say that someone has the right to be gay, well do we not also have the right to make fun of someone for being gay. I mean if someone chooses to be a child molester then I am gonna make fun of them and say that they are wrong and awful. If someone chooses to have sex with animals I am definitely going to make fun of them. And if some dude chooses to throw it in some guys back door, he has that right but I have the right to say that is sick and that being gay is stupid.

Lets celebrate our freedom. The freedom to do a dude and the freedom to make fun of him. Lets all stop being so "gay".

Yeah, I use those also. If someone is being cheap, you can say stop being jewish. Each race and lifestyle choice has their stereotypes. It is ok to say something in a joking manner and not really mean it. Lets all just stop being offended at everything. If you dont agree with being gay you should be able to say so. Everyone is so uptight. Relax and get over yourself. Now if someone is honestly racist I have a problem with that. Just learn to laugh at yourself and the funny parts of your culture.

This post is gay.

Some people think that it is stupid to be gay.
Therefore "gay" became another word for "stupid" or "dumb"
You can use "gay" to mean "dumb" without thinking that it is dumb to be gay.
Or you can use it that way because you think it is dumb to be gay.

Either way, stop being gay.

What kind of law schools do you guys go to. I see no evidence of anyone being a heavy drinker here.

Look at it this way. Alot of law school is to prove that you are smarter than the other students in your class that an employer could potentially hire. Even if you dont learn what you need to know to practice while in law school, you prove that you are smart and are capable of learning what you need to know to practice. That is what firms are looking for.

I think eventually you get to a point of diminishing returns. Is reading the cited cases going to help you understand the law better than you could from just that one case. Maybe slightly, but I think you would be better off spending that extra time reading a hornbook, or an examples and explanation book.

At this poing im reading the hornbook and commercial outline before I read the case. I figure that way I already know the black letter law before I go into the case. I dont spend as much time reading the casebook and I feel like I pick up more information from the case since I already know how it will be decided.
