IN PRAISE OF T.V. COURT SHOWS

Posted by PP.

DW has been watching these things for years. There’s a local station that has them on every weekday from 6:30AM until 11:00 and another channel has two from 11:00-1:00. Since I don’t spend hours getting angry and depressed over researching links for this blog I started watching them and found they are a good character study in the theater of the absurd.
Harry ‘The Smarmy Toad’ Reid made a comment about Judge Judy Sheindlin yesterday and I took the opportunity to express a non-partisan opinion.
Aside from Judge Judy,the gold standard with a viewership of about 11 million per day most judges on TV are either black or Hispanic.of course,there’s plenty of drama. After all,it’s entertainment. The litigants in most cases are black and the stories they tell to get on these shows reads like really bad fiction. Traffic accidents,landlord/renter disputes,couples break up and gifts are suddenly ‘loans’,siblings suing each other,parents suing their kids and neighbors at loggerheads. The amounts sued for range from $100 to the maximum in small claims court,$5,000.
Why would someone sue their brother or sister for $100? Because if a show picks your case you get flown to the city where the show is taped,you get put up in a nice hotel and meals are paid for. The hook is,if someone is awarded damages it comes out of a general fund and the rest of the pot is split. So when a judge says ‘judgement for the plaintiff’ it means that amount comes out of the pot before it is split.
On all the shows,most let litigants get away with way more than they ever would in a real court. Judge Judy is the least tolerant of shenanigans and has very little tolerance for people that live off welfare. She claims she and her friend,bailiff Petri Hawkins-Byrd (Byrd for short) are paying for these leeches through their taxes. The shows producers make her put up with some backtalk from litigants,but she doesn’t take very much.
Since I’m pretty much homebound this comedic theater is more fun to watch than any news channel. You just have to keep in mind that most of these Wal-Mart freaks are low-information,committed democrat-type voters. The commercials are all either personal injury lawyers,structured settlement funding places or pawn shops. Where else would they advertise?

Reid: Judge Judy Would Toss Boehner Lawsuit in ‘Half a Second’
“Republicans have made a decision on a lawsuit against President Obama. It’s difficult to understand how desperate they have become,” Reid said. “It’s a show trial. If that’s really what Republicans want, they should go talk to Judge Judy. I think she would throw this case out in half a second.”

WHILE I’M AT IT,HERE’S A STORY ABOUT SOME LOWE’S EMPLOYEES DOING WHAT THE VA REFUSES TO DO….RESPECT OUR VIETNAM VETERANS.

Lowe’s employees come to the rescue of disabled vet with broken wheelchair
By Michael Sulsona of Graniteville

In 1971, I stepped on a land mine in Vietnam and lost both legs above the knee.

For the past two years, I have been waiting to receive a new wheelchair from the Veterans Administration. In addition, I have been told that I am not entitled to a spare wheelchair.

On the evening of July 7, my wheelchair fell apart again, while shopping at Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in on Forest Avenue in Mariners Harbor.

Three employees, David, Marcus and Souleyman jumped to my assistance immediately. They placed me in another chair while they went to work.

They took the wheelchair apart and replaced the broken parts and told me, “We’re going to make this chair like new.”

I left 45 minutes after closing hours in my wheelchair that was like new.

I kept thanking them and all they could say was, “It was our honor.”

The actions of these three employees at Lowe’s showed me there are some who still believe in stepping to the plate.

They didn’t ask any questions, didn’t feel the need to fill out any forms or make phone calls. Someone needed help and they felt privileged to be given the opportunity.

    Has YOUR man ever faked his orgasm? Over 30% of males admit that blissful moment of climax is sometimes just a performance

    Oooookayyyy…..women fake it all the time…that’s a given.
    Can somebody explain to me how a MAN can fake it?Isn’t it obvious?or has the interpersonal dynamic changed that much?
    Yes,there’s a screenshot at the link of the famous scene from ‘When Harry Met Sally’….one of the funniest on film.

    ‘Archie’ to Die Taking a Bullet for Gay Best Friend

    “We wanted to do something that was impactful…”
    Oh,good grief;the comic is 72 years old.I grew up reading the comic with the crazy kids hanging out at the malt shop.
    now I find out Archie is straight,but curious,Reggie was probably a closet homosexual,Jughead was definitely bisexual,Veronica is straight,but frigid and Betty is a transgender saving her allowance for an addadicktome operation.Yeesh.
    When I was a kid comics were called:’funny books.’ Not any more.

    This Rape-Repellent Bra Will Shock You…Literally
    An electric bra?Really?
    Way back in my post-pubescent years,I envied the studs who could undo a two-hooker with two fingers.I was useless if the lass wasn’t willing.Three hooks were a great challenge and a four-hook meant you better have a ring in your pocket.

    It’s called Society Harnessing Equipment, or SHE for short, and here’s how it works: The bra contains a pressure sensor connected to an electric circuit that generates a shock of 3,800 kilovolts, which is severe enough to stun an attacker and severely burn his hand.
