The way of the world.

Oh I get it now the jobs summit must have come up with this idea that we return to the previous honours system. This will avoid massive unemployment by creating substantial numbers of new jobs. I take everything back I thought the job summit was going to be a complete waste of time.
Meanwhile Lloyds Bank yes that is Lloyds Bank has been nationalized in the UK. No need for people to buy shares anymore everybody owns the company now anyway. You can buy citigroup shares for less than 1 dollar in USA but I wouldn't rush into it as they are still overpriced. I was so disappointed that noone put a comment on my blog but now I realize it must have been a bit too raw for people. The real estate industry is still forlornly trying to talk up the housing market principally thru the pages of the New Zealand herald. Interesting that the idea of a daily printed newspaper in the US will soon be over. This housing bullshit is a repeat of what occurred in the USA where the NAR national association of realtors tryed to bullshit everyone into buying houses. Eventually they gave up.The US sharemarket is now 56% off its 2007 peak. In the 30s the Dow jones went down 90 % over thirty months. Presently the sharemarket is well over halfway there with another 18 months to go. My prediction is that this time the whole sharemarket in the US will be wiped out completely. Yes 100% gone. Ours will do the same. Dont be sucked into any suckers rally on the sharemarket or the housing market.You will regret it severely. Houses here are way overpriced.Remember it was cheap money that created this situation in the first place.Now they want to give money away again so people will forget the size of the debt they are taking on.

How do Defence Lawyers sleep at night.

How do defence lawyers sleep at night?
I must admit when I saw the photos I was totally creeped out. It took me a while to get over them.  I had a flashback of defending a person charged with having sex with a woman who had an IQ of around 70. I agonized about the case and taking it to trial. But it was resolved on the court steps with a guilty plea and no prison sentence. A week of hot showers finally washed the case off me. I don’t think I did many more cases after that involving sexual crimes. Not because I wouldn’t or couldn’t. But perhaps word got around that I didn’t like women being raped and those defendants didn’t gravitate towards me. I felt more at home defending people charged with stealing vast amounts of money, sometimes off old people in Rest Homes. Was there something about the fact that no blood was spilled which enabled me to shut off the devastation inflicted on these victims? Did I have a fatal flaw? Should I get psychotherapy? Should I change to family law, where I…

Be wary

Be wary of the lawyer who says he can get you off the charge without knowing anything about it. Look for a lawyer who is nosy and wants to know what happened. Sometimes the lawyer who says no problem I can get you off this very serious charge will change their minds just before you are about to be arraigned before the jury and say I think you should plead guilty. A trained monkey can tell people to plead guilty. You might be better off with a lawyer who appears a little pessimistic but when the bullets start to fly doesnt wave the white flag.

David Bain.

The distressing thing about the David Bain case is that there are many more cases like that where people have been convicted of murder on the shonkiest of evidence. Take for example the case of Gail Maney who is serving a sentence of life imprisonment for the murder of Dean Fuller Sandys in 1989. She was convicted of murder at her first trial but this was over-turned because the Trial Judge did not put the defence adequately to the jury. She was convicted again at a retrial in 2005. On appeal to the Court of Appeal one of the appeal court judges was the judge who failed to put her defence at the original trial. Does that sound fair to you.Three court appeal judges.You need two to win and one of the judges was the previous trial judge. Fuller Sandys was allegedly murdered by Steven Stone at the behest of Gail Maney in the garage of her Henderson house in 1989. His body was never found. His car was found at a west coast beach some time after he disappeared. It was alleged that he was d…
