True today


Galvin: Well...You know, so much of the time we're just lost. We say, "Please, God, tell us what is right. Tell us what is true."

I mean there is no justice. The rich win; the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time we become dead, a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims -- and we become victims. We become weak; we doubt ourselves; we doubt our beliefs; we doubt our institutions; and we doubt the law.

But today you are the law. You are the law, not some , not the lawyers, not a marble statue, or the trappings of the court. See, those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are, in fact, a prayer, I mean a fervent and a frightened prayer.

In my religion, they say, "Act as if you had faith; faith will be given to you."

If we are to have faith in justice we need only to believe in ourselves and act with justice. See, I believe there is justice in our hearts.

Summation by Frank Galvin in "The Verdict"

This has long been a favorite movie of mine. As an attorney I have watched it through an attorney's eyes. I watched it tonight, but this time through the eyes of a citizen of the United States. It serves as an observation of today's United States and comments on her leadership. The lies, the nearly complete misunderstanding of the workings of government, the nearly complete ignorance of the Constitution, its meaning and its guidance, and the obvious inability to form a viable government. We lose faith in the institutions we have grown to rely upon, we lose faith in the purpose of viable government, we lose faith in those we've chosen to lead and guide us through life in the United States. We misunderstand why and how 30% of Americans can support this kind of malfeasance and misfeasance, but we bypass the discussion by saying they simply miss the point or misunderstand all together. They listen to the words they want to hear and pretend they are true, then bestow their full loyalty to failure to the detriment of the remainder of the nation.

Prejudice cannot be conquered with logic, logic didn't instill it and logic cannot eradicate it.

    th e 30 percent votes. do the 70 percent
Your innate inability to think, a product of poor upbringing, has failed you once again. I was both a police officer and an attorney. I still have hope you'll catch on to this thinking thing someday, but, quite frankly, that hope has begun to fade.

Unfortunately, the last paragraph of your blog could apply to a number of countries these days.

We often seem to being voting for whom we consider the best of the worst. Many are not bothering to vote for reasons similar to those stated.

I've asked you to cease posting on my blog, and I renew this request. If a request is insufficient, I shall be forced to use more permanent tactics. Despite the fact you seem unconcerned, I am embarrassed as a human being that people as ignorant as you not only walk the Earth, but vote as well.

Talk about pot/kettle...You've said you were a prison guard, a real estate agent, a news reporter, etc. And you said you are presently working at Republican headquarters. What's next? Your announcement to run for President? From what you've shown here, my theory is that your lack of education doesn't give you that many options for a career choice.

It's rather pathetic to watch you attempt to match wits with Skariff. Sadly, you don't even realize how pathetic you look. I fully agree with Skariff when he states it's embarrassing to realize people like you actually vote!

I don't think you should discourage him.
It's important for people to realize what a dimwit he is.
