Sure this guys not a catholic priest? Same moral character.

And people wonder why I left Cleveland.
2002-12-23 03:19:48 PM  
Shoot 'em both.

Wow, what a coincidence, I am also currently reading about the admissions requirements to various law schools. Nice to see what you guys think of my future self. :-)
2002-12-23 03:20:36 PM  
that is a v- ery interesting read. i ho- pe that he gets disb-arred. what an a-ss.
2002-12-23 03:20:36 PM  
C'mon, this lawyer has morals. At least he didn't fark his client, get her pregnant, and then force her to let him handle the adoption of the kids. Now that's a scumbag !
2002-12-23 03:20:39 PM  
That's inhuman! But when you have a government that's a combination of capitalism and fascism, sh#t like that tends to happen.

Sad. farking. State.
I've got a 50 cent solution for his problem, comes in .45 cal or 9mm.

If she's that farking stupid, the kids might be better with another family.

As far as the "esteemed" counselor, one more reasoning I'm getting out of the business. I'm surprised he hasn't claimed an addiction of some sort as a reason for his asinine behavior.
2002-12-23 03:24:17 PM  
Shoot the lawyer for being a lawyer. Shoot the woman for being so farking gullible. Shoot the babies to keep the pollution from the gene pool. And then toss the gun to me....

FARK should have an "Evil" tag. "Asinine" doesn't quite cover this.

- David Hare, why are you burning all your personal possessions?
- As of this moment, David Hare no longer exists. Say hello to Miguel Sanchez!

She was going to give up her "precious cargo" anyways. He just offered to make the arrangements and in turn that would provide an equitable solution to what she owed him. Is it okay to make a living at what we do, or should all live like a sit-com character where an imaginary income is a given, or where having an income isn't really necessary at all? Get real Fark Wads!
2002-12-23 03:29:21 PM  
As an adoptee myself, this is sickening. Children put up for adoption are too often treated as commodities. No one ever really thinks about the pyschological well being of the child. Sucks. A lot.
2002-12-23 03:31:39 PM  
The pathetic thing is: "she did not intend to marry their biological father and she could not afford them." Why the hell was the beotch irresponsible and got pregnant? People like that should be sterilized. It's not a friggin car, they're human beings.
2002-12-23 03:33:32 PM  
We need a Scumbag tag.
2002-12-23 03:33:41 PM  
Whatever, I am so sick of hearing about how the US is "facist" and all that. We live in a country where this behavior is, apparently, not illegal, in fact the lawyer may only be disbarred. Further all kinds of scams are rampant. The government has hardly raised a finger. WTF are you talking about? Try China, where you are told what you can say, publish, how many kids you can have etc.
2002-12-23 03:36:37 PM  
"In testimony to the grievance board, Lutz said Hare also gave her a used car and paid her rent, delinquent parking tickets and expenses for her older daughter's school trip to Washington."
Seems fishy to me. Why is he footing the bill for her on all this stuff to begin with? Awfully friendly lawyer.
Also, she didn't complain till he cut her off. Both of these people seem like scum to me. The only victims here are the adoptive parents.
2002-12-23 03:37:58 PM  

LOL, I was going to ty- pe my mess- age like that too!

How many times has this arsehole used the 'ole line, "The secretary screwed it all up.". I mean, geez..what a prick. I'd be so pissed off if I was his secretary, and he's blaming me for his illegal baby-selling tactics.

The lawyer was a sleazebag. In related news, your dog wants steak.
2002-12-23 03:39:02 PM  
what the fhuhck can u expect, he is a lawyer.Stop acting so suprised and disgusted, that is just the tip of the ice berg.Lawyers make the world go round, their greed and low self esteem drive the dollars out of the pockets of our rivals and into our own. for gods sake, lets lay off the lawyers and really lace into the real problems. the fhucking french, and those damn illiterate canadians.
2002-12-23 03:39:54 PM  
The sale of whole babies is okay, but the sale of kidneys, lungs, and other separate organs is not okay.

My brain hurts. I'd sell it if I could.
2002-12-23 03:42:59 PM  

Dont be a pussy. Pull the farking trigger.

(Highlight his post)
2002-12-23 03:43:04 PM  
Misterz-Northern, In China they do not tell you how many children you can have, but a heavy tax is placed on your family if you have more than one. Kind of like your boss telling you to show up on time, you don't have to but if you don't there are consequences.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the topic except that it has to do with babies. lay off the crack pipe and hash buddy.
2002-12-23 03:46:00 PM  
Ain't got one to pull
2002-12-23 03:48:44 PM

Wow. People are fvcked. I love how the lawyer and the mother are both driven by the thought of a profit. What does she have to sell? Oh, her kids. Great. I think that they should take her older daughter away from her. She does not deserve to have any kids.
2002-12-23 03:56:47 PM  
Allow me to demonstrate it in action again (with a little extra complexity).....

OldnBusted - Nice assumption that it was for me. Maybe it was for someone else (like an ex-gf who decided to break up with me the night before my birthday, 12 days before our 1 year anniversary, and decided to fark a friend of hers while dating me).

Works really well. Oh and please see my example for a definition of the text between the font tags.

Whatta scumbag.

Needs to be lightly tapped on the nards once an hour for the rest of his life...
2002-12-23 04:01:11 PM  
I am so proud to be a lawyer right now. *sniff*
2002-12-23 04:01:15 PM  
hey let me try

MisterZ smokes crack
2002-12-23 04:02:00 PM  
So what's the problem?

Couple wants kids.
Parent doesn't want kids.
Lawyer handles paperwork.

My sister gave her baby up for adoption. I know for an absolute fact that the adoptive parents gave her whatever she felt was a fair trade, in so many words. Paid off school debt, I think a car, or paid the rest off. I didn't ask too many questions as it wasn't any of my business, but she wasn't wanting for anything in the transaction.
2002-12-23 04:02:39 PM  
i guess it didnt work -what font color

2002-12-23 04:03:46 PM  
i guess it worked

MisterZ smokes alot of crack and eats anus
2002-12-23 04:05:21 PM  
The only good thing to come out of this situation is that the children are with the only 2 people who don't appear to be scumbags in the whole story. That mother sounds like she needs to be sterilized. Unemployed with one kid already, in the red for one divorce already, and now getting pregnant by some random guy and selling the babies to the highest bidder. She only squealed when he cut off the funds and then had the gall to contest the adoption and cause more pain and suffering for the couple and the children. And the lawyer is just disgusting in every way possible. My father is a lawyer and he has never in his life degraded himself with such disgusting behavior and fraud; maybe that's why he's not rich, though, too.
2002-12-23 04:07:25 PM  
This is right up there with that story about the car saleman who bilked the retarded man out of all his money. Lawyers are sleeze, plain and simple.
2002-12-23 04:09:35 PM  
This guy's a modern day Shylock.
2002-12-23 04:12:10 PM  
Tzzhc4-are u saying that urbn's dad is a sleaze as well? shiat urbn, if i didn't know better i would say that this communist is trying to go anti-american on gonna take that?
2002-12-23 04:12:35 PM  
So, do people actually READ the articles before posting these headlines? Because the lawyer was waiving the legal fees so that he could arrange the adoption the mother was going to do, anyway. Now, the financial arrangements and everything were just retarded (throw in an asshat lawyer and a blackmailing mom for good measure), but seriously, the lawyer didn't "convince" the woman of anything.
2002-12-23 04:13:43 PM  
woah there diogenes watch it with the jewish joke. i know you probable didn't know you were making one but, still watch it.
2002-12-23 04:15:34 PM  
Yeah. God forbid someone might inadvertently offend another human being.

And Weebers, don't you know that your nickname is a Prussian insult? I demand you change it.
2002-12-23 04:17:12 PM  
Weebers: Why is the mere mention of the aformentioned character considered anti-semitic? I was making a literary reference, not a racial epithet.
2002-12-23 04:21:33 PM  
point taken skail, and no it isn't you asshat. that is blowing it out of proportion. first of all, the context that you did use it in is anti semtic for the sole purpose that when that name is mentioned it is a name regarded with jews being money lenders.
2002-12-23 04:23:13 PM  
The lawyer is called rumplestiltskin.
