But just because there is an oversupply of lawyers, that's hardly sufficient evidence to say our future will get worse and worse in the long term. I believe in our people, our infrastructure, and our national spirit. Moving to a third-world country is for sissies and wash-outs
Our "people" are a morbidly obese, dumbed-down gaggle of anti-depressant popping TV addicts up to their hairline in credit card debt and underwater mortgages. Most earn wages that, when adjusted for inflation, are lower than what the avg. worker made in 1972. Only endless bales of debt made the American Dream circa 1970s to 2008 possible. Now the easy credit train's wheels have come off. The party is done, but the hangover will last for decades.
LOL at our "infrastructure." The Tappan Zee Bridge could collapse any day now. Ditto the Pulaski Skyway, Goethals, and most other rusting bridges etc, some of which are 80+ years old and have been neglected for decades. With Peak Oil bearing down on us, what's the use of repairing this crap anyway? Not gonna be much traffic when gas hits 7 or 8 bucks a gallon, since most people can barely afford to fill up now. They just jacked up all the Hudson River tolls to $12 a pop too. Of course, in a country where toll both attendants and prison screws are paid 3 X what public defenders are, WTF do you expect?
Our "national spirit"? ROTFL! What's that, spending weekends at the NASCAR oval with 100 K other white trash morons watching other white trash morons waste fuel and tires driving around in a circle? Or following the NFL like a religion, swilling BBQ wings while hulking millionaires smash into each other while other millionaries watch from the sidelines?
Funniest of all are sites like this, populated by children in their early 20s who are convinced beyond all doubt that sitting for 70+ hours a week shuffling thru bales of the dullest, driest, most pointless shitpaper mankind has ever produced is some kind of "success." The disputes of the future will likely be settled with fists and small arms, not piles of cut n' pasted pigslop "pleadings" and other nonsense. Take a good look at what's going on in Europe, and think how much worse that scenario will be when it visits a US city near you. Remember, almost none of those wankers have access to firearms. Here in the US the underclasses are armed to the teeth and getting more & more pissed off by the minute as their jobs, savings, and "careers" swirl down the shitter while the Lawyer-In-Chief (who was at least smart enough never to actually practice in this gutter of an industry) takes 3 vacations a month and hosts 50 K a plate fundraisers where Biglaw bootlickers and other suck-ups and frauds wash his balls and secure their place in line to be allocated the rapidly dwindling amount of handouts & goodies from the dot.gov.
