      The working man will go broke first.

      This better be good. Because it is not going away.

        A reputable lawyer would likely take the case on a contingency basis, and taking a case on contingency means you're pretty sure you'll win it. So if anyone's gonna be running out of money, it'll be Halifax.

          contingency, you still have the face the possibility that you will not win the case. And the loss means bankruptcy. Have you faced one of these cases. My co-worker, who had signed the same damned "contract" that the rest of us signed. So I saw it play out.

          One contingency lawyer or lawfirm against an army of lawyers. So go ahead, you feeling lucky.... well are you? That is what position we were put into.

      that the media is the mouthpiece of the uber-wealthy.

      I don't mean "Yes, the informational news shows do seem a bit slanted in that direction..."

      I mean that the 'news' shows on television are not about informing the public AT ALL.

      They are propaganda outlets for corporate America, and that is all that they are.

      Rule of thumb: If it's advertised on TV, you probably shouldn't buy it.
