You really get a different view of the medical profession in the transcription profession.
yeah, well, if they get sued later they damn well better make sure that the file was accurate...

Not in my state.
Our state pays a group of defense attorneys who represent individuals in capital cases.
We decided it was cheaper to pay for qualified defense attorneys rather than go through the appeal process due to defendants having poor representation.
the only standard for an attorney to be "qualified" in any state is to be admitted to the bar....

Galt, the only thing this trial had for evidence was a golf club they claimed came from the Skakel house.
I would not send someone to jail on that evidence.
Skakel was found guilty by a jury...your opinion on his guilt is irrelevant....and his guilt or innocence is not being argued in the appeal...

one of the arguments cited in the appeal is that Skakel's attorney did not try hard enough to pin the murder on Skakel's brother...as if that would have helped his case...

Obama and his HealthCare.gov campaign is now wanting everyone to discuss Obamacare around the Thanksgiving table.

http://www.barackobama.com/news/get-talking-a...

And they will even supply with you simple tips on "how to have the talk".

Apparently, he has been tweeting everyone "Get Talking" during the holidays.

Is this nation being led by 12 year olds?

Or hormonal 16 year olds? Seen the sex ads promoting Obamacare to young people?

Without physical evidence, the juror is left determining the credibility of the individuals making these claims.
You should know this.
Scott Peterson was convicted of murder and sentenced to death with less physical evidence than was present in the Skakel trial.

I agree with you on this; I asked you if you thought he was guilty. A personal opinion. Everyone has a right to his/her personal opinion.

No, don't believe I did. But you like to pry into my personal business a lot. Sharing something about my former job is neither here nor there. Talking about my part-time job isn't either.

But someone brings it up or I wouldn't be talking about it in the first place. More times than not, it's you, throwing grenades about my personal life and then scolding me for addressing it.

Maybe if you stopped giving me advise when it's not asked for and acting like you know my personal situation better than I do, I'd stop addressing your prying and unwanted advise.

Deal?

<quoted text>Yep, with Obamacare you can get a job, become a multimillionaire, and still end up on Medicaid whether you want to or not.
Didja see that on the news yesterday where this man said that on entering Obama's website that he was given only one "option" of *insurance*, Medicaid. That was in spite of his claim of owning a $5,000,000 home and having his kids in expensive, private schools.
We had to know from that irritible, internal conversation niggling in the dark corners of our minds, that any healthcare legislation that had the Subversive-in-Chief's name on it was going to be nothing but a Socialist piece of crap.

The defense attorneys ARE NOT part of the county public defenders office (at least our local office), but are attorneys experienced at representing clients charged with serious crimes-qualified to act in this capacity by the state. They can come from anywhere in the state.

We were having to many troubles with poor representation and decided the additional cost of having these "qualified" lawyers was worth the cost so this would NOT be an ongoing problem.

We pay for Cadillac defense attorneys.

Best I can explain it!
