    1. And a 9.0 rating on AVVO! I could add some editorial comments here but I think her rating says it all....

    2. 10:19 here again. Just to clarify; I don't know her. And when I said "I think her rating says it all...." I meant her AVVO rating says it all about AVVO as an attorney rating service which is supposed to be an independent, unbiased rating service. ROTFLMAO

    10. Who risks everything for a $9K probate fee? Noel had to be more involved in the misdeeds than just this one incident, right? As Bobby Graham would (probably) say, go big or go home.

    11. Look at the winners who gave Simpson a good review.

    12. @ 2:56: Or not. Or maybe her services were misused by the client. Honestly still allegations. I agree with you. The fact that there was very little in it for her other than a standard fee would not lend itself to cutting corners.

    13. She notarized the documents involved - methinks there's a trend here that should discourage attorneys from being notaries.

      Delete
    14. Day 1 of Contracts class in law school-- Professor led off with that warning: attorneys should never be notaries. Seemed pretty tangential at the time. Not any longer.

  2. Drove by the new building yesterday w/the kid. Pointed it out as our new Supreme Court building. Kid says "oh, so courts are like castles!" :-\

    5. Good to see you Shirley, we were awaiting your arrival.

    6. not just red, the colors change

    7. Pretty sure the red light was a reference to Roxanne and the whores inside that building.

    1. Maybe the city can give the Queensridge folks the "Alta Treatment" -- i.e., use taxpayer money to beautify and limit the develoment of the the local Plutocracy's neighborhoods.

  4. Judge Haviland was Judge Smith's secretary until she passed. That seems to be the extent of her qualifications as Judge. I have only appeared in front of her several times but she made me wait over an hour each time. Not a big fan.

  5. In other news, Republicans can't even rally together an repeal Obamacare despite promising to do so for the last 7 years. Just really shows how full of crap the GOP really is

    1. 1:03--It is hard to repeal a "welfare program". Obamacare was a disguised welfare program by expanding "medicaid" which was intended for the disabled (including pregnancy) and the elderly. Now it has become the subsidized insurer for the food stamp crowd who sleep in and don't work. They just have more babies and more welfare. Now they have health insurance subsidized by the state and federal government. Obamacare is like mandating a law that you have to buy car insurance even though you don't drive and don't own a car. You might drive and you might get a car so we will call the mandate a tax. Constitutional? Obamacare needed to be declared unconstitutional but Justice Roberts flipped and brought this misery on everyone. Food stamps were intended as a temporary stop gap measure. Imagine trying to repeal food stamps now.

    2. @1:32...7 years, not even a plan that can pass the house.

      Also, you getting paid to post on a message board at 1:32 is kind of like accepting food stamps. Ayn Rand is not impressed with you.

      Delete
    3. 1:32: not everybody drives cars; everybody gets sick

      Delete
    4. 1:32, this is 1:03, and you sir/madam are an prejudiced idiot. I grew up on welfare and foodstamps, and i can assure you it is NOTHING to want to live on. I made sure I worked my way out of that as soon as I could. Last year I paid over $20k in taxes alone. And you know what? I am fine with that. I make good money now, and I live a comfy life. Until I come across idiots like you who have no idea what its like to truly live under the poverty line. Cause if you did, you wouldn't be spewing that idiocy out of your mouth

      Delete
    5. 3:47 I respect what you just said, and I am glad you worked your way out of the "system" I grew up on meager means but likely not as meager as you describe. I do not argue with paying a fair share of taxes. You seem to agree that 20k last year was fair for you, would you feel the same way if you paid 350k in taxes like i did?

      Delete
    6. 4:07 the answer is yes. I paid more than you in taxes and still believe people need insurance.

    7. I don't think anyone will credibly try to argue that people don't need insurance.. The argument is in the how to achieve it side.

      There are a few methods that can be utilized to help expand the pool of insured individuals while reducing costs:

      1) Remove the link between the employer and the insurance. Allow all insureds to join various group policies regardless of employer choices;
      2) Allow the purchase of insurance across state lines. This increases the pool of insured persons for the insurance company to spread the costs over and allows the insured's real choices;
      3) Split the insurance policy into 2 parts; a mandatory component which contains certain required minimum coverage's and an optional component for more comprehensive benefits. Does a single male really need coverage for pregnancy or Ob/Gyn services, or a single female need coverage for prostate issues?
      4) Allow people to fund a HSA type account with pretax earnings which can be used for paying insurance premiums and co-pays.
      5) Shorten the exclusive patent period for drug manufacturers if a finding is made that they are unfairly exploiting that exclusive use to manipulate/exploit the market. Perhaps allow competitors to use the intellectual property upon payment to the patent holder of a reasonable license fee (after the patent holder has recovered the cost of research and development)

      These are just a few ideas to improve out health care system. I am sure that there are other and probably better ideas as well.

    8. Single payer, universal. Problem solved

      Delete
    9. To anyone thinking single payer is a good idea, take a look at the VA for a crystal ball look into how our government would run health care.

  6. They're nihilists. Party of "No"...we get it, you don't like Obamacare. How about a solution beyond that? It's been 7 years...

    1. How about moving past the slogan to "repeal and replace" and simply focus on "repairing" a system that most would agree is broken.

      Delete
    2. Yes, and for those that want 2 words... Repair & Improve!
