This was a phrase used by my mother in our house when reading and trying to understand insurance policies or anything of a legal nature .
The phrase goes back to colonial Philadelphia . So I would guess in those day's , Philly Lawyers were really smart guys . smile.gif

weedavy as you are interested in Philadelphia lawyers have a look at the lyrics of the song,
"Philadelphia Lawyer" by the late great Woody Guthrie who if he was still about would be 100 years old.Its a great story and a great song.

Angel you have a look too and you will see that this Philly lawyer wasnt that much of a hot shot.

Listen to the song by Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper on You Tube.

Thats a good question Jupiter!! I think there is not that much to choose between them now and really its just another job for most of them who dont have much to offer. Politicians seem to be absolutely anonymous in our communities now.... I cant remember the last time I seen a politician on the streets unless it was on polling day and then they would be full of promises about how they were going to get more active in the area. Aye.... heard that!!

I think they are so much alike now that I would even accept a Tory politician if he knew his stuff and actually bothered about what was going on where I live. There are so many problems in the area and yet I dont hear any of them giving solutions or even chapping on our door to say that they hear us.

Did any politician stand up for the rights of the family who were evicted from the pool??

I think a lot of what you are saying is right Dylan but one thing is that a lot of the socialists who go about now are also lawyers or in some profession like that so they are just creating jobs for themselves or their pals. It wasnae like that in my day when a socialist was a hard worker who fought for his working class community. Now it is totally different!!

Many Lawyers are hard working .

Most are right wing and chase PI claims .

Wish more were Socialists and fought for the working class. !!

Of course they shouldn't have been allowed in! Every day I read where children drown - the latest a 2 yr. old in Surrey B.C. in a private pool whose grandmother couldn't swim and he fell in. In a separate incident another toddler is in hospital too. In a crowded pool you are asking for trouble - lifeguards can't see everything and children are so quick - one child and one adult - makes sense to me! And I'm a good swimmer! [...]
