96416....

Her Opponent



When you watch the play her opponent it is crystal clear why trump resonates with the average frustrated american---- who doesn't give a shite about racist/sexist/religionist identity politics.

Identity politics are racist and bigoted....that is a fact..until democrats and progressives understand this they will LOSE.

The female Donald trump walked all over the male Hillary Clinton...

Why?  Because the gender had nothing to do with the message and will of the people.

No one really gives a shite about gender politics


The play where the genders of trump and Clinton are switched shines a light on how manipulative Hillary media surrogates ny times wash post Newsweek CNN NBC la times were.....and how wrong they were.


Enlightening.

Hillary and her lazy work ethic were what was really exposed.

She is a real tool....and a shill

One of the mantras of us green libertarians is live free or die.....we accept governmental social programs but less government is much better than the bloated federal government and hacking and pruning is necessary.

Trump is a Democrat but he is a Democrat who doesn't like political correctness and he doesn't like to be bullshitted he wants to cut through bureaucratic bloat....hell if he started pushing the notion of term limits it would be a dream come true...

Like it or not he is bringing tough hard change to our government.

It's needed.

96203...

Hillary Clinton's foundation is sinking but for many years she built up ties with anyone who would give her money in return for political opportunity be it foreign government leaders, domestic lobbying groups, domestic activists, foreign business women and men, and of course rich campaign doners.

Essentially, she acts like a king.  It sidesteps ALL government groups checks and balances.....oligarchical leader/influencer.....a king. Or a king maker----

It is pure pay to play but seemingly legal because "everyone knows king hillary".....because it was set up to be simple and to thwart traditional watchdog measurements.

The dismantalling is happening.....when she lost the election the air began releasing from her coffers tires.


WikiLeaks busted her.  Clinton, because she is notoriously lazy, years ago brought an actual "reset" button which really said something to the effect overcharge or double charge......she looked STUPID.

PUTIN, as a former kgb operative and interrogator saw through her bullshite and Putin relished dealing with the novice Obama--- who never quite found a way around his term restrictions.....could not handle Russian ascendency.

So, the Russian hacking of the DNC and all the other hackings by various rogue elements is quite telling.


America is vulnerable to outside forces and the media has played on this fear.

Obama tried to look tough by putting sanctions on Russia before he left office and put focus on Trumps words where he requested the Russians to intercede, and release the corruption information regarding Hillary.

This is all laughable and pathetic.

But ultimately the only goal accomplished of making the trump organization appear treasonous is a stall to his administration because most Americans dont buy it.

Trump is smart in saying that his office was bugged because now the FBI director is asking his bosses to formally denounce the bugging claim.

Trump gave the FBI one week to say that the whole "Russian collusion" is a farce.....but Comey wouldn't budge. 

So the media focus is now be Ing shifted into something more interesting to "conspiracy theorists" regarding "deep government operatives", cia surveillance, FBI surveillance....

Trumps Russian connection is beginning to fade into the background and would be totally done as a media fixation if the FBI would simply say in Obama's words


There is no there there.....lmfao!!!!

Like it or not trump and his screening of people from countries with serious civil unrest is just what Obama did. 

I love the new term for screenings



Travel Ban!?????  That is a laughable term.

Try to get on a plane in Israel....they have had travel bans in place since the 70's.

Trump will now set congress to work on immigration regulation and balancing the budget.

I love how trump played the FBI against itself.

Congrats, FSU is a good school.

If you get stuck on something, try the Examples & Explanations books. I found them very helpful during the first year. Good luck!

Good Morning All,

I realized I never closed this thread, and I wanted to express appreciation for everyone's reasoned thoughts.

I have decided that I will be going to FSU. Now I just have to bide my time till August... So close and yet so far away...

Congratulation, and good luck!

Free advice - your first year is really, really important. So make sure you treat it appropriately. Do all the work, and do even more. And don't pay attention to the 1L rumor mill. All 1Ls are overworked, scared, and don't know what they are talking about.

(But a study group will be a good idea)

Come on Nancy Pelosi....

Kelly Ann Conway is a Republican. 

Cedric's double entendre regarding her being on her knees on the sofa at the oval office cannot be sexist because

Sexism doesnt count when it affects Republicans.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Tier 4?
« Last post by Maintain FL 350 on March 06, 2017, 11:09:26 AM »
I agree with Loki, location is everything.

Two additional points:

When you say that T4 is all you can "manage", are we talking about geographic and/or time restraints (perhaps you need a part time program?), or are we talking very low GPA/LSAT.

If it is the latter reason, and depending on just HOW low your numbers are, you may want to step back for a minute and rethink law school. There are T4s that will accept someone with a 148, and I think those applicants might want to rethink their decision. If you have a 155 and the only school nearby is a T4, well, that's a different story.

Second point is regarding solo practice. I don't know if you have any experience with a solo practice, but it is VERY difficult to set up shop straight out of law school without at least some prior experience. You should try to get hired at a firm or govt office first.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Tier 4?

I am looking at some Tier 4 schools since that is all I can manage. I have heard some negative, some positive. If I am not looking at going to big law firms and just aspire to my own private practice, am I still at a disadvantage? Some people have tried to discourage me completely while an attorney I know said it really doesn't matter what school you go to, depending on your expectations.

There is no easy answer, here. Or, as any attorney would say, "It depends."

Let's take three "Tier 4" schools (I don't know if they are all Tier 4 currently, but generally have been): UMaine, Suffolk, and Florida Coastal.

These are three very different schools. All of them are "tier 4" in the sense that the applicant pool tends to have lower scores (uGPA + LSAT), they don't have great placements (BigLaw, good firms), and they aren't well-respected nationally.

But they are also very different-
UMaine is the only law school in Maine, and the state law school. If you want to practice in Maine, if you want to be a Maine attorney ... well, it's a fine choice. Maine does have some transplant attorneys (highly ranked New England law schools), but there is nothing wrong with going to State U if you want to practice in that state.

Suffolk is fine if you want to take a job in Boston- not a white shoe job, but one of the other legal jobs in the Boston market (PD, prosecutor, government, smaller firm, etc.).

Florida Coastal, on the other hand, is "classic" Tier 4. For profit, low standards, and competing in an oversaturated legal market. There are 11 law schools in Florida, and it might be the worst. That said, you can still pass the bar, or transfer, or do well out of Florida Coastal!

It's just probabilities. Tier 4 schools give you fewer options. And you have to do better at a Tier 4 school to get an equivalent position than you would at a higher-tier school; your competition might be less, but there is far less margin for error.

As practicing on your own- all you have to do is pass the bar. It is certainly doable, but most people struggle in solo practice without a few reps or some connections.

can’t be blamed.

2. Now, how ’bout that revolution? Sarandon was right there, too. OK, “revolution” may be too strong a word. But she is correct in saying that Trump’s presidency has woken up people in a way that never would have happened if Clinton had won. The popular retort to this is: Oh, but Clinton would have been much better than Trump. So there would have been no need for revolution! Therein lies the crux of the liberal con.
