How can you possible know this? You've never been a lawyer...


I would think its something like the decision making process in other life changing endeavors. People who decide they want to have a baby don't know they will be happy with it. They have never been a parent before. Also, people who embark on any other career (doctors, engineers, clergymen, etc). I'm thinking people make the decision extrapolating on their own experiences and things they have heard/read/seen.

Keep in mind that you'll be doing OCI in 2011, so you'd better hope that the economy picks up in the next 1.5 years.

I heard from a credible source that the REAL unemployment rate has risen to 120%

FYI It's Unamerican to not have huge, looming, potentially crushing debt. FYI: America's gross debt will be 99% of the GDP in a year or two. Be a patriot and 'invest' now. Afterall, you don't want to be debt free. That'd be communism.

Also. I heard from a credible source that Justice Roberts was retiring. :lol:

Maybe we should just concentrate on Bankruptcy Law to ensure employment?

Grossly saturated legal field that's quickly being outsourced to India and soon China? Yes Please!

Ya, we're fucked for good. Just like in the great depression when the stated unemployment rate was 25%, so probably actual unemployment in the 30%'s. Never quite were the same after that one


lolerz. i like how you said America is "fucked for good" in one sentence then in the next quote a time when our economy was much worse yet we are still around. We survived and in fact have done quite well for ourselves in America since the Great Depression.


Haha at first I thought this person was serious. Sarcastically expressing obliviousness to sarcasm - touché.

Still sounds like a conservative estimate.
