I wish I had gotten involved with our American law system forty years ago; then, I may have been able to make a difference. Just proves the old saying is true ; 'If only I knew then what I know now.' But, then again, maybe I can still make a difference; it's never too late. For the sake of my children and theirs, I can at least try. May God bless you and yours, my friends.

Now, Criminal Litigation,
Has proven to be a wake up call;
With Civil Litigation thrown in,
This is justice for one and all?

No, that isn't the way it works,
Though, that's the way it's supposed to be;
The real fact of the matter is,
Depends whose butt is kissed you see.

The plan was really quite ideal,
But, it's like the old saying goes;
Big money talks and bu.. sh.. walks,
As true poets already know.

A system made for the many,
Now just applies to a scant few;
Better be sure to stack the deck,
Before you go ahead and sue.

Don't go getting charged with a crime,
You simply do not have a clue;
Unless you know a great lawyer,
Even here, the deck is stacked too.

Go figure it out for youself,
That's about all I have to say;
Except, "God bless America,"
And, "for this land we need to pray."

Hi Paul,

A system that is supposed to be by the people, of the people, for the people... and we now know what people they mean. Thank you for sharing this...

In Spirit,
Bear

IT IS CERTAINLY TRUE THAT A LOT OF INJUSTICES ARE GOTTEN AWAY WITH...BECAUSE THE LAW CAN BE TWISTED FOR OR AGAINST ONE DEPENDING UPON EVERYTHING ELSE....EXCEPT WHAT IS FAIR AND RIGHT. THANK GOD FOR PRAYER...IT IS REALLY THE ONLY HOPE OF THIS LAND...FOR ONLY GOD CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS.

We said Paul. There's a reason why there are so many lawyer jokes, and few of them complimentary. Patrick (brown lips) Granfors

I agree with Mr. Carroll the last sentence is by far the most powerfull in this wonderfully written piece.


GOD BLESS YOU
