He resigned alright, in 2002. But while he—John Dwyer--was Boalt Hall’s (Berkeley) dean, he doubled the number of nonwhite students through expanded recruitment programs and fund-raising efforts and greatly increased funding to the law school’s clinical programs -- a crucial resource for public-interest law students (i.e., students committed to serving the middle and lower classes—no, we don’t need more corporate or lawyers for the wealthy).

04 Mar 2013 at 7:13 PM LAW SCHOOL DEANS, LAW SCHOOLS, PLAINTIFFS FIRMS

From the files of “things that are entirely predictable to everybody except for the guy in charge,” Interim Law Dean Tom Q. Keefe has been pushed out at St. Louis University School of Law. Well,“fired” according to some reports.

You mean bringing in a straight-talking law dean who was a personal injury attorney with no ties to the law faculty and was hand picked by the increasingly unpopular university president didn’t work out? SHOCKING! Tell me more...

For those who haven’t been following this story (and if you missed these prior posts, you really missed out), Keefe took over at Saint Louis Law after Law Dean Annette Clark resigned in protest. She objected to the university president, Father Lawrence Biondi, using the law school like an ATM.

Enter Keefe, hand picked by Biondi to run the law school. Keefe wasn’t a legal academic, he’s a personal injury lawyer who claims to be “nuttier than a fruitcake.” Despite criticism from the SLU faculty (and students), Keefe claimed he was not “Father Biondi’s butt boy.”

At the time, I wrote:“This guy is going to be a riot — before he (almost inevitably) flames out.”

YOU should not post and watch TV! Take your own advice there madame!
]"Let’s pause for a moment to discuss that threat. Republican leaders like House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell didn’t really want the Treasury to default on its obligations; they just wanted to use the debt ceiling as a hostage to extract spending cuts as a ransom. But some new Tea Party congressmen genuinely welcomed a default, because, well, let’s be charitable and say they didn’t understand the catastrophic consequences. In any case, the threat was real. Republicans say the debt had become so outrageous that drastic measures were necessary to prevent us from becoming Greece. I’d just point out that markets didn’t agree; interest rates on Treasury bonds were historically low and getting lower, a measure of financial faith in U.S. credit. I’d also point out that the kind of austerity the Republicans were trying to impose on the U.S. led to double-dip recessions in Great Britain and Spain; recessions make fiscal problems worse because they increase spending on social services, while decreasing tax revenues from workers without jobs and companies without profits. It’s also worth noting that the deficit exploded under Bush and has declined under Obama; federal spending has actually increased at the lowest rate since the Eisenhower years."

"But whether or not Republicans were right to threaten to create a fiscal Armageddon if Obama didn’t agree to reduce the deficit—through spending cuts, not tax increases, and non-military spending cuts only—that’s what they did. Obama wanted a “clean” increase of the debt limit; the GOP wouldn’t give it to him. That’s why Standard & Poors downgraded the U.S. credit rating. Bondholders didn’t care about the debt ceiling when it was purely ceremonial, but now Republicans had dragged us into an era where we’d need to pass a bill through both houses of Congress just to pay our obligations."

"But the budget mess is far more complicated than that pat contention implies. For one thing, these new spending cuts would come on top of $1.7 trillion of spending reductions already set to take effect over a decade.

For another, the spending reductions mandated by the sequester legislation are confined to a group of programs representing less than half of the budget, as shown in chart 1.

Even within this select group, all programs are not alike. Medicare is slated to be trimmed by only 2 percent, while a 7.9 percent reduction will be imposed on the military. Nondefense discretionary spending – everything from education aid to research grants – will be reduced by 5.3 percent."

Does anybody wonder what that is? Why do none of you so-called conservatives concern yourselves with financial institutions controlling and manipulating our economy from their positions of monopoly domination?
There's one set of laws for banks and another set of laws for depositors. I like it better when we all have the same rules. It makes "right" and "wrong" so much less confusing.
Conservatives, I have a question for any/all of you:
What do you want to see accomplished via politics? What, exactly, is your objective, and what do you expect a successful program to achieve (what will it do for America)? Leave Obama out of the picture, and just discuss your desires.
I may have you all wrong. Help me out here. Thanks.

Well, it can't work for YOU. I'm not a miracle worker. If you were color blind and couldn't see red, would I be able to describe it to you? You can't understand my post so you think it's pretense, which is ok with me. Stick to the their charlatan properties. That's just me being silly. Anyone can follow that part. Buy a book on basic logic and maybe you can understand the whole.

did the gf lie about what she said TM said?
did the original eyewitnesses not see what they reportedly said they saw?
did the ME fudge the autopsy report?
did GZ injure himself?
why do you and others keep bringing up the bail hearing? didn't it occur AFTER the incident and faux Arrest Warrant?
the thing about this travesty is, if GZ today, who tomorrow?
if FL gave in to domestic terrorism, which state is next? yours? mine?
what's next, military drones flying over US soil? Oops! already there!
maybe our FG selling guns to drug lords? Oops! already happened!
a sitting 'peoples' Pres equivicating about whether or not killing NON-violent American people in violation of the Rule of Law? Oooooops....
as far as answering your question about about a BS hypothetical 'what if', when are you, or any one else, gonna present any evidence to contradict the FACTS as we now know them?
you are an intelligent person, take off your 'tragedy' hat and put on your Common Sense hat and follow the FACTS only.
or, are you like NTR, and rely on using 'negatives'(mythical things that never happened) to argue/prove a point (like Obama's wonderful actions to-date has prevented worse)?
did we get to this SORRY national state by one Pres/Party's fault? or, several Admins/Parties over several decades?
so far, this case is bad enough. think what we will become if GZ is convicted on the NON-evidence we have now?
arguing this case is like arguing whether or not Obama is a FAILURE: the obvious need NOT apply.
does it not give you pause that the Super of WH Staff calls the Pres a liar?
our Pres tells lies about Benghazi? and then tells lies about telling lies?
that our new Sec of State can transfer millions of dollars to Egypt with a mere word but the previous Sec of State couldn't spend $1 on additional security for our consultate in Libya?
are your eyes brown? if so, you are FULL....
You know what I find to be funny about a lot of the posters like you. Lack of being polite. You can't converse without being derogatory and mocking. Now why is that? Are you that insecure about your views?
Trying to have a conversation on a message is difficult at it's best. But when you add to that people that want to belittle those that don't agree with some things makes it impossible. Is that the purpose? I can understand when one gets really upset with things that are being thrown at them that's not nice but not in just replying to another poster.
In any case I disagree with what you consider facts. I'll leave it at that.

As to debt, while the economy is in a funk, it’s much stronger than we believe. Growth isn't slow because we've lost our ability to innovate, or some vague reference to "uncertainty." It's slow because we're in the middle of the first debt deleveraging—the shedding of debt--since the Great Depression. That's why we have 7.9% unemployment. It's actually amazing that we've been able to slowly grow the economy and bring down unemployment over the last four years all while deleveraging.

The end of deleveraging—when consumer and gov’t debt is paid off--could be a big boost to the economy, and will ultimately be how we get back to normal growth, and debt as a share of GDP has declined every year since 2008 (i.e, since the Democrats came into office).

Conclusion: Republicans=debt makers=bad; Democrats=paying down debt=good.
