Posted on 01/14/2005 5:57:02 AM PST by hdrabon
The ACLU's "constitutional" lawsuit with this Tuesday's Presidential Inauguration is a three-way taxpayer hit:
1. By act of Congress, the ACLU is allowed to bill (likely at the highest rate possible) the government/taxpayers for the costs of bringing the suit, and automatically is paid, regardless of the suits' outcome.
2. By operation, the cost of defending against the suit is charged to the taxpayers, again, likely at the highest rate.
3. By function, the cost of hearing and adjudicating the suit is at taxpayer expense.
Of course, it was members of the legal industry, Congress's largest and only functional built-in lobby, who made the law!
Our imperial legal industry -- Minor risk and guaranteed high return. The setup against liberty is becomming more and more clear.

Should have been dismissed as soon as it was filed. Frivolous.
Its time to put brakes on these sharks.
Needs to go away.
I'm curious as to what percentage of all annual lawsuits are filed by W/OACLU!
Write your congressman and have them take the law off the books that allows the ACLU to collect taxpayer money for these lawsuits.
Yeah, it will be a cold day when someone of consequence and appropriate legal ability files a Rule 11 against the ACLU for not doing due diligence and filing a frivolous lawsuit. To do so would open a can of sabre-tooth worms for the imperial legal industry. HDR
OK, then lets talk about finding out-of-the-box ways of starving the legal industry's cash cows, and returning the legislative and judicial branches of our government to the people! -- HDR

Since the legal industry controls Congress, and Congress gives the money for research such as this, it isn't likely that we will ever get to know under the current anti-citizen environment engendered by the legal industry. -- HDR
Right -- But pick a Congressperson who IS NOT an attorney by trade, or someone not in attorneys' pockets.
We're gonna have to ditch the entire lot as defective items and start over. Rule #1: One CANNOT hold office IF THE ARE or EVER HAVE BEEN a stinking land shark!
Gee! that would really make it hard. Most of those people are lawyers.
Obviously -- The problem is, though, that most citizens are not aware of the Antitrust nature of the legal industry. Most of us never have to go to court and learn the hard way the justice is not the first order of business for our local courts. The first order of business is the growth and perpetuation of the local legal industry.
If the media were not so set or avaoiding these issues, or were not afraid of the legal industry. . . . -- HDR
Not only that, but they should have been fined.
Yep -- We get what we pay for, especially when we choose to be ignorant, sleepy, and naive. The War on Terror requires diligence on all fronts. We are dealing with an industry that is an internal threat, and that thrives on our divisions (Democrat/Republican, Liberal/Conservative, Black/White/Hispanic).
But you certainly have the idea of what is actually going-on behind on the more obvious problems in our country. -- HDR
That's what a Rule 11 would do, but bringing something like this into the mix (as well as any civil-suit mix where a Rule 11 is clearly justifiable), would begin to expose the realities of the industry. To much risk, not enough benefit. -- HDR
