legal “aid” has left the building…
Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well Cricketeers, we poor folks can’t afford a lawyer. So there’s this organization called legal “aid.” They are supposed to help us poverty stricken types with legal problems when we have them. I’ve dealt with them several times over the years and never got much help. In past I would at least get (after jumping up and down and screaming) an appointment weeks later to speak to a lawyer in person who would do very little for me. What they would at least do in past was make copies and phone calls or send faxes and such. They would always spend lots of time telling me that they would not represent me, but they would at least send a fax. The joint was like the poor peoples kikos copy center.
SONOFABUSH! I went down to their local orifice a couple of days ago and they have even closed the copy center. They wouldn’t even let me talk to a lawyer, not even an appointment next month. THEY WOULDN’T EVEN LET ME USE THE FAX MACHINE! Instead they gave me the phone number for the legal “aid” lawyer “hotline!” They let me call from their office phone. Wasn’t that nice of em? It’s only a matter of time before they farm the hotline out to a firm in india…
DAGNABIT! There I was in an orifice with a dozen so called “attorneys” who were all busy having snack time (nap to follow) and they had me talking to an attorney miles away in another county by phone! The least they could have done was offer me one of their juice boxes and a plushy to hug while I tried to get the telephone customer service representative/attorney to send a damn fax! She reminded me about 50 times, in the most professional tone, that she was “not representing me.” I wanted to scream at her that I would not hire a lawyer over the phone and if I was looking for representation I know better then to come to legal “aid,” but I bit my tongue. She finally kinda agreed to let me fax her the form I needed to fax, and she might fax it to where it needed to be sent, maybe, if her boss said it was ok and that sending a fax was “not considered representing me.” JEEZ! What a big unnecessary run around!
FAGETABOWDIT! No wonder “per se” cases and poor persons petitions (in which people represent themselves for lack of a lawyer) have sky rocketed over the last few years. The only lawyers poor people have access to, legal “aid,” don’t render any aid what so ever! Things are getting worse and worse here in the u s of a…
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are sick and tired of getting screwed…
We continue to insist that the criminal statusQUObama admin:
- Cut pork barrel military spending by 50%! FUCK the military industrial complex!
- Replace the failed “down payment plan” with universal single payer health care!
Here’s my FAVE endorsement for single payer universal national health care, from the neolib who now refuses to give it to us:
Let’s see, in the video statusQUObama had a step by step process to get a single payer health care plan:
- dems take back white house CHECK √
- dems take back senate CHECK √
- dems take back house o’reps CHECK √
- PAY UP BITCH! Mauhahahahahahahah
The ongoing ClapSotronics serving suggestion:
EAT THE FUCKING pig corpoRATe rich!
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
