Hamilton, people visit this site so that they can see me profile law schools - not to read about the freaky-looking, banjo-playing kid from “Deliverance.” Currently, readers in Ohio expect me to feature their local TTTs. Then you had to go and write some dreck - and delay these reviews.
How’s it going, Bitch? Seeing that you have a last name for a first name - and a 12” neck - how many lockers did you get stuffed into as a kid?!
“The indignities heaped upon our nation's young attorneys continue to pile up like snowdrifts on the bleak city streets. Consider the plight of today's humble barristers: having spent the year confined to an office, they emerge to find...a bonus nightmare.”
In this piece, Gawker “staff writer” Hamilton Nolan decided to mock Biglaw associates who are supposedly lamenting their meager annual bonuses. I am not a fan of Biglaw and its corporate cockroach clients. (These crooks are often worse than the common street criminals.) Instead of noting the rise of LPOs - or focusing on ABA “Ethics” Opinion 08-451 - Hamilton chose to act as if Biglaw associate bonuses are a sign that the legal industry is picking up. The job market for American lawyers is shrinking, ass-monkey! Seriously, do some real research BEFORE spouting off on a topic you know nothing about. Why not focus on attorneys taking cases – from beginning to end – for $350?
We can see that Corky mockingly posted about law students’ gloomy job prospects back in August 2010, as well.
“Not long ago, America's best and brightest young greedy bastards were piling into expensive law schools, confident they'd soon be wealthy older bastards. Then, law degrees became worthless. It's gotten so bad, young lawyers have resorted to doing something respectable.
The NYT reports that hotshot young would-be corporate attorneys are stuck in a world of high law school debt and newly low chances of scoring that coveted partnership as a highly-paid corporate paper-pusher-for-hire, since old lawyers aren't even retiring any more. Desperate times call for desperate measures.”
Too bad the sallow rat did not dig deeper and discover that many of those who want to be public service attorneys will never get the chance - because of the lawyer glut and monstrous NON-DISCHARGEABLE student debt.
Let’s peruse this moron’s blog for a moment. Check out his take on Dick Cavett’s New York Times blog.
On the right hand side of the page, you can access his full profile. From there, you can see that Pencil-Neck calls his blog “Hamilton Nolan Says Smart Sh*t”. Hell, the next time you say something intelligent, moron, will be the first time you have done so.
Check out this interview with Gelf Magazine and “intellectual heavyweight” Hamilton Nolan.
Gelf Magazine: Before jumping over to Gawker, you were a staff reporter at PR Week. Were you at all intimidated by the new job? Commenters can be cutthroat, after all.
Hamilton Nolan: It was interesting. I was excited, more than intimidated. I liked the idea of being able to write more freely than you can just by being a standard reporter. The most fun thing to me is the freedom to write like a normal person, not just like a reporter.
[Read: “I can write like a bitch, and not worry about presenting objective facts - or conducting any meaningful research.]
Apparently, Gawker does not require much of its staff writers.
Hamilton, your “writing” style is similar to this tripe above. You simply pass on the misperception that lawyers are making it big, thereby feeding into the average person’s anger at the situation. The ignorant masses - including selfish Baby Boomers - then jump onboard with their foolish comments. In the end, you are no better than demagogues/pretentious douche-bags such as Bill O’Reilly, Glen Beck or Keith Olbermann. (At least those ass-clowns make serious cash for selling their souls.)
Do yourself a favor, Stupid Bitch, and adopt the following: (a) learn how to engage in thorough research; (b) present objective facts; and (c) don’t buzz your hair when you have a MASSIVE forehead and Dumbo ears. Perhaps, you can report on the fact that 44,000 JDs from the Class of 2009 competed for 28,901 jobs requiring bar passage – without telling debt-strapped JDs to “get a real job.”
Who knows? As a "journalist,"you might even be interested in the average student indebtedness incurred by those who attend law school. These are cold, hard facts that do not require idiotic commentary.
