NO TIME TO BE SAD


Anonymous writes a letter of introduction:

Dear Bloggers,

I don't think we've met in person, my name is Anonymous. Sometimes, I make a single innocent post and see what happens. Sometimes I post, then I immediately post responses to myself to make it seem like there are many like me. Sometimes, I even use my "real" name, then I anonymously support myself. I cast aspersions on judges, defense attorneys, and prosecutors indiscriminately and at will with no concern for the facts, their careers, or the emotional impact I may have. My possession of testicles is questionable and would be disbarred/sued if identifiable. Maybe I should be banned, it sounds like I am the problem. I need a hobby and I wish I didn't get beat up so much in high school.
I am voting MYSELF off the island.


A reader is a bit pessimistic:

Rumpole:

Once again this site has turned into a place where people are mostly posting anonymous and often unfounded and downright cruel gripes at those they feel have wronged them (or of whom they are just jeolous of). Sorry, but I think you expected something better; you are, after all, Rumpole of the Old Bailey. You know, the guys who wear wigs and robes while they litigate in their fine Queen's English.Query: Is it time to pull the plug (or should we just start wearing wigs and robes)?
One Who Won't Be Named To Avoid Attack

Rumpole says: Cheer up ol’ chap. Things are not as bad as they seem. Yes, we are in favour of wigs worn in court, but that never caught on over on this side of the pond.


Things could be worse: You could be picking a jury right now North of the Border.
Have you been there lately? Yes, it's a bit hard to know when to go with the secret hearings and such. But have you seen the prices for parking?
Eight dollars an hour!!! That means if you go for an 8:30 sounding, and being from Miami, the court inadvertently calls your case last, and you get out at 12:30, you have paid $32.00 for the privilege of being North of the Border. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Back to your complaint: Yes, we abhor the cheap cursing you Yanks are so fond of. But this blog brings plenty of laughs, some good information, and most importantly, provides us a creative outlet when the gym or onanism aren’t enough. (look up onanism, and then see if we don’t have a sense of humor.!!!!)
For our robed readers, you can go here:http://www.m-w.com/


See You In Court, feeling satisfied after the gym, or whatever if you get our drift.

The bar will still make him go to NA or AA meetings.

Glad to see some out of town prosecutor knew a bad search when he or she saw one.

VERY BORING BLOG THE LAST FEW DAYS!

DO A STORY ON JUDGES GELBER, SEPE, SHENBERG, DAVIS, ETC. JUDGE SHENBERG HAS SPENT 11+ YEARS ALREADY IN MAXIMUM SECURITY FEDERAL PRISON. HE NEVER SNITCHED AND TOOK HIS MEDICINE. WHO OUT THERE WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME VS. SPILLING THEIR GUTS TO GET A BETTER DEAL?

Anonymous said...

Shenberg and the rest of them, including Sepe, should have gotten LIFE IN PRISON. SCUM OF THE EARTH!

Anonymous said...

who are you to suggest that Shenberg has been in prison too long? Are you aware of the facts?

Anonymous said...

Rump,
Wasn't Judah's son killed for the act of which you speak?

Anonymous said...

So much ink is spilled over which judges are or aren't hot. Who cares? What matters is their intelligence, not their appearance. And sad to say, with Barzee's departure from REGJB, the last smart one has walked out the door. Who's left?

Anonymous said...

The last smart one?

How bout

Reyes, Fernandez, Glick, Dresnick, Pineiro, Lopez

And dont give me any "not nice" crap on these judges - as Fredo said, they're smaat, not dumb, and they want respect

down n' out in eff-hell-ay said...

Barzee smart? Choosing between fire engine red and smoldering crimson for lipsticks does not a scholar make, my friend.

aretha got respect

I've practiced law in Dade for quite a while, and Emas and Barzee were--by far--the two brightest legal minds we've had in REG in recent times.

ferrer was sharp also.

Those parking prices in Broward Central Courthouse - you ain't lying about that one. I opted to pay the all day price instead of by the hour and thus I pay like $24. Luckily it was an all day one day trial. But at the calendar call, I'd paid the half day price of $15, and got done within like 20 minutes and wasted my money.

Anonymous said...

i hear ya. always double your fee for broward.

Why doesn't Bonnie Ripyourheartout not run in Broward? There are many people who do not know any better there and may vote for her. Then again, maybe Don Not King Con can go with her. Is that man retarded or what? Certainly not qualified and ugly as sin. If I was him, I go on that show Nip and Tuck if not becoming one of those latin wrestlers and wear a mask. Man, you are one ugly man Don not Not King Con.

What a predicament. Can someone else please file on this group. Seems many people would like a lifeline here.

Prediction: Anyone else files in this seat, both Rip and Not Con are lllllooooossssseeeeeerrrrrsssssss.

Regarding the Ripyourheartout-Cohn race. You're right about HER. She should move to Lauderdale or, better yet, Lake Okeechobee and hang out with the rest of the trailer trash. With her bleached-blond hair and cheap make-up and clothes, she'd fit right in there. That's where she truly belongs. She's a hateful spiteful bitch who thinks, for some reason, that she's something special. Nothing could be further from the truth. She was a mediocre lawyer to start with at best)and a bad judge (being kind). On the other hand, Don Cohn, who I don't personally know, is said to be a fine lawyer who, I've heard, has tried numerous cases during his career. Everyone I speak with seems to think he's the most charming, gracious, professional attorney. And, I might add, that's a really cheap shot about his weight and appearance. Pounds and beauty are not what make a good judge. So get with the program!

Anonymous said...

Am I the only one who has had good experiences with Rippingille?

Anonymous said...

Probably. Cohn is sure to win this race. Unless Cathy Parks steps in. She could beat them both. Easily.

Anonymous said...

Yeah. Parks already did it once.

Anonymous said...

I hear Parks is going to run in Circuit.

Anonymous said...

against who?

Anonymous said...

dunno. Brown? Rothenberg? Platzer?

Anonymous said...

I doubt if parks will go into the Cohn-Ripyourheartout-bitch race. She's friends with both of them, i heard. Even after she beat cohn in 2002 she's friends w/ him. but politics is politics. who knows? parks amd cohn would both be good assets on the bench
