Or is it Ma’am? Anyway, I’m still stuck on merely questioning authority. Spotted in Ithaca: [Note – this post was supposed to run at 7:00 a.m. today, but I scheduled it incorrectly.  It actually went live around 9 a.m.]

Amy Bishop, who shot up her colleagues at the University of Alabama, was one in a long line of violent criminals the MSM and left-blogpshere immediately tagged as a Tea Partier without any basis. My post at the time, Inevitable “Tea Party” and “Amy Bishop” Link Attempt: There is no actual link between Alabama-Hunstville shooter…

It’s very difficult in Ithaca or Rhode Island to get a sense of how the presidential contest is playing out. Because both New York and Rhode Island are sure winners for Obama, there is virtually no advertising on television in these markets for the presidential race.  In Ithaca, which draws on the…

The class clown of the academic internet is beclowning again; must be he’s upset with my investigation into Elizabeth Warren so he attacks the only way he knows how.  Rather than address the merits, he picks a three and one-half year old post of mine and calls me names.  Class act. So I thought…

I really try not to read the comments in other blogs about me.  In the early days I did care, but I learned that it’s generally not healthy. But when I saw that Volokh Conspiracy had a short post by Jonathan Adler about Elizabeth Warren — VC’s first foray into the issue,…

As long time readers know, I have been searching for a unified theory of race card players. It seems too simplistic to view people like Chris Matthews as liars.  It’s not that they lie about facts, it’s that facts are irrelevant.  Everything becomes racist or at least a racist dog whistle, based solely…

Just after the Benghazi attack on our consulate and the murder of four Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, I explained in a post titled Lack of Intelligence Community why I blamed our nation’s intelligence apparatus and not the White House for this colossal failure. Now comes this confirmation: Extremists from groups linked…

In response to the New York City subway attacks by Mona Eltahawy, the Egyptian-American activist, the Metropolitan Transit Authority has now determined that it will change its rules to prohibit any ads that it “reasonably foresees would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace.” The decision came…

Ignorance? Apathy? Mediocrity? All of the above? In a video taken outside a Romney rally, one Obama supporter shares why he won’t vote for Romney. Pay close attention, because this is what happens when nearly every mainstream media outlet in the country is in the tank for one candidate. Some quotes that…

Every time some prudish librarian or school board wants to ban books that they consider inappropriate for children, elites sniff at the rubes’ lack of sophistication and anti-intellectual bias.  As you’ll recall, during the 2008 election it became a big campaign issue that as mayor of Wasilla, Sarah Palin supposedly inquired…

Mass Lawyers Weekly readers want investigation of Elizabeth Warren license problem

Posted by
9/28/2012 at 7:42pm
Mass Lawyers Weekly ran a reader poll today regarding the following question: Should U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren be investigated for possibly practicing law without a license? I heard about the poll in an email just after 1:30 p.m. today.  I did not publicize the poll because while online polls are not scientific,…
