The Lawyer’s Full Employment Bill
"Thanks president Obama, for putting all the unemployed lawyers back to work. The legal industry has been hit hard by the recession, but that’s over now. What some people call the 1,100 page Stimulus bill is really the Lawyer’s Full Employment Bill.
Can you imagine how many lawyers its going to take to interpret it, explain it, write articles about it, find mistakes in it, be on talk shows about it? Then comes the regulations. Oh yes, any government agencies involved, like the White House Mall Sod Revitalization Administration, will want to write regulations, and who do you think will be writing them? Lawyers. After that we have the bidding process for the companies who want to revitalize the sod or build the skateboard park or supply the condoms. You have to have lawyers manage the process, but not to be greedy, maybe some accountants will be included as well.
Don’t forget the fun part, the litigation - suing the government on behalf of aggreived parties who are not getting their fair share, beneficiaries suing each other, and finally, everybody suing everybody else. This is the best thing for the legal community since ERISA!"
