They Want Sheep, Not Bulls


"That is why some of the agencies have some of the most unethical, lazy people on their staffs. Many of the people they retain aren't necessarily the best workers, but people that can be counted on to follow the agency/firm's modus operandi.
As someone so aptly put it, agencies/firms want sheep, not bulls. I was once on a project where some of the agency "darlings" were skipping over entire boxes of documents. What they were doing was clearly unethical. Because they were buddy-buddy with the project supervisor and because the agency could count on them to bill excessive amounts of hours, they were not only retained, but the people that brought the problem to the attention of the agency were ultimately fired. I quickly learned that I needed to put my head down, keep clicking, and never again open my mouth.
That is when I ultimately discovered that the temp. racket wasn't for me."

More sheep:
"It is not just the law schools that are in predator mode. It is the entire legal education and licensing industry. From LSAC 5 yr limit on LSAT scores to the state bar examiners use of intimidation tactics on C&F and licensing, not to mention egregiously intrusive questionnaires, to the nonprofit law schools that charge tuition based on WHAT THE MARKET WILL BEAR, to corrupt entanglement of the law schools and universities with the student loan institutions (as evidenced by the lack of transparency), to the textbook/bookstore industry that has evolved to produce textbooks that cannot possibly be read by the students during the semesters (and ARE NOT READ), textbooks that are overstuffed to generate REVENUE, to the hostile and intimidating atmosphere generated by each of these corrupt legal industry institutions, all the better to induce a sheep like state in the students as they are led to the economic slaughterhouse..."

If fraud is occurring, stop clicking, and get out. A shitty temp job isn't worth it.

Of course they want sheep, far easier to shear than more ornery animals.

The law is nothing but a massive pyramid, with a select few at the top and great many fighting for the crumbs, far below.

Tom: Please remove these racist and sexist comments--your readers are not only white males...thanks. You should also get this sick puppy's IP address....you never know who he is or where he may go in the future, better to know now in case his name pops up in the future, which I am sure it will. Sickenly reminds me of the VA Tech shooter.

Blog does not allow for the blatant and offensive use of the "N" word and/or other racial slurs.

If you think my policy is censorship, start your own blog. No one is forcing you to be here.

seems silly to censor. considering we're all adults.

don't quite see the purpose of it.

especially if it's obv for comedic purposes.

perhaps if everyone wasn't so goddamn thin skinned you could handle it.

you are, as always, pathetic

Throwing around the N-word is not comedic.
