    Not any more than usual. Attorneys built this country. They wrote the constitution and created our government. The United States was founded as a nation for merchants, but led by lawyers.

    No....we are! Our politicians and the legal profession represent "us" and most of the time they simply reflect our own greed, lust for money and power. We are quick to accuse politicians of being corrupt and dishonest, especially the ones from the "other" party.  We also appear to be somewhat blind when it comes to the similar actions of "our guys" however. It is quite sad, actually, how easily we can accuse the other side of all the wrong doing and corruption while holding up our own sleaze as pure and wholesome.  Funny how easy that is.....isn't it?

    . If we really want to find out how we got into this mess and who is to blame I think it is time for all of us to stand up and ......look in the mirror!! The answer you seek is there

    There is a saying that goes something like this.
    "In the end you, usually, get the government you deserve"
