Psychological Warfare in Lawsuits

They say war is hell. Well, so is litigation. Things can get downright nasty in the legal trenches. Some lawyers even cross ethical lines and risk disbarment in order to win. In a recent patent infringement lawsuit between warring technology giants Qualcomm Inc. and Broadcom Corp., federal magistrate judge Barbara Major found that Qualcomm had… Continue Reading

    Yes, I agree there is some truth to these remarks.  Many defendants seek records from past and future employers.  of course, they are just digging for dirt on the plaintiff.

    Oh nice, thanks for share!

    Who investigates crimes against humanity if you crack a code
    online and report it to the FBI? Since March of 2008 I have been in a constant
    state of interrogation. I’ve seen my entire family used as bait and forced to
    sign NSL’s to aid the Feds in a nonstop witch hunt. My emails are trapped,
    phone calls intercepted, I’ve been forced out of one state, only to return to
    another and be mobbed daily by local law enforcement and some covert agency.
    I’ve been denied speaking with an attorney, told I have no civil rights, and
    denied filing a lawsuit in federal court. I would go public with my
    information, but outside of the 24 hour surveillance and GPS tracking, the
    media has been taken over by the feds as well to keep a lid on this story.

  1. Pay California judges minimum wage and see how that works out. It won’t!

  2. This is no doubt a whopping large amount especially during a period of serious credit crunch and global economic down trail. I think voices should be raised against this gross injustice.

The McDonalds Coffee Cup Case

Are there too many lawsuits in the US? Are there too many plaintiffs who are just trying to game the system and hit the judicial jackpot? Are there too many frivolous lawsuits like the McDonald’s coffee cup lady weighing down the economy? If you’re like most people, you probably answered yes. But as usual, the… Continue Reading

    You are entirely correct, mea culpa. I’ve made the clarification you suggest. Thanks for pointing out my error.



  2. Jeanne says:

    Water starts to boil at 186°F in high altitudes, and 212°F at sea level. I’m unsure if this incident took place overseas, in the great lands of celsius measurement; But for the sake of accuracy, a simple clarification might make your article more credible.

An Act of Goodness

Ever come across a story that just leaves you speechless? Here’s the story that did that to me. I hope it brings a smile to your face, just like it did to mine. Starbucks barista Sandra Andersen only knew Annamarie Ausnes as an upbeat customer who would come in the mornings Continue Reading

Our National Deficit – Who Do I Blame?

Is anyone else concerned about the direction our country is heading towards? Because I know I am. Here is just one symptom of the problem, our nation’s skyrocketing budget deficit.

    Eh, what a bunch of crap that chart is.

    Who controlled Congress during the Clinton years? Do you think the invention of the web had anything to do with the economic growth of the 90’s?

    Both parties suck, both seem to be corrupt and most politicians live like they’re royalty.

    Why aren’t Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and Charlie Rangel out on their asses?

  2. Eugene Lee says:

    Aaron, thank you for dropping by and the nice words!


  3. Good Blog. I will continue reading it in the future. Nice layout too.

U.S. Workers: Say Farewell to Job Growth

I’m no economist but I’ve long thought that one of the biggest problems facing the US economy is the fact that the US worker has become increasingly irrelevant in the global marketplace, largely because of the loss of US leadership in numerous key industries. Long gone are the days when US companies sat atop the… Continue Reading

The War on Americans

In my mind, I keep coming back to Michael Moore’s movie, Sicko. Although the movie was about the U.S. health care system, the point that has really stayed with me is something much bigger. It was something that was said by Tony Benn, a former member of British Parliament. “I think there are two ways… Continue Reading

    Brad, thanks for the comment. I definitely plan on checking that movie out. Glad to meet a fellow thinker!

  2. Brad D says:

    A very thought provoking entry. Have you seen the Zeitgeist movie? If not you might want to check it out. It seems there are at least 4 ways to control society, and hence the world.

    Keep on thinking !
