Chief, ABA Disciplinary Counsel, or President of the United States, but I hate wearing suits and would also hate to give up the snappy ensemble I wear now.

LOL

But the ABA is a voluntary association with no disciplinary authority over anyone. Many, like me, have resigned from the association because it has been taken over by liberals.

There are jobs like you've described, but they tend to be at the state level. Plenty of bad lawyers to discipline though, especially if you take a big state like CA or NY.

I think the President can wear whatever he wants, can't he?

Seems like you're the right guy, TR. Where do I send my check?

Realistically, before IT I was offered a job as a supervisor with the Postal Service. The money was good, but the hours and people? Not on your life....

Not sure I could do or have done anything else. Sort of feel like I have been doing this forever and think this excerpt from Patton's poem sums it up for me.

So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

I learned from the FOG's out at the SERE school. Especially from "One Eyed Nael".:D When I was a construction superintendent...I'd fire people on the spot! Until our VP told me...I was no longer allowed to fire people because we were running out of workers.

So I started docking their pay for stupidity.:p I had two guys cutting a 2by4 piece of lumber...One stood on it, while the other cut:confused: I docked them both 30 minutes of pay for stupidity.

When you tell a guy, "16inches off of that wall" and he pulls out a tape measure and stares at it and hollers back, "that's one foot four inches right"?
