  1. I'd be inclined to agree with you if you weren't a bigoted piece of ****, but since you are there is this little factoid: Episode 9 of Season 2 titled Blackwater was the lowest-rated episode of the season, despite the fact that it was the most pivotal episode of the series up to that point. It fell on Memorial Day Weekend. The Season 1 episode, You Win Or You Die (episode 7) was offered to HBOGO subscribers immediately concluding A Golden Crown (Episode 6) due to the anticipated low ratings during Memorial Day Weekend (Which also ended up being their lowest-rated episode).

  3. But yes, back the the end of your post, if I took the time to look at the law on this, I could (arguably) do a better job at reading it and interpreting its meaning.

PM your billing address and I'll get right on it. I'll send you an invoice for my time

    That is always a fun one. I love when I get calls from old acquaintances trying to get free advice on copyright/patent law, because think they have the next big "thing".

  5. In your example, employment law isn't heart surgery per se, but it's a specialty in the same way heart surgery is. So you're correct that your orthopedic doc won't know much about it. I don't think doctor and lawyer analogies really work because all doctors learn the anatomy of the human body at the beginning of law school and then specialize. Law students take a set of pre-selected core courses that don't cover the entire body of the law, but what's deemed most important/practical I guess, then we branch out into electives. My law school offered an employment law class and I didn't take it.

  6. I'm not super familiar with employment law and don't feel like looking it up, to be perfectly honest. We're not masters of all areas of the law like everyone assumes.

    Seriously? At will employment is the situation you are describing, not right-to-work. Those two terms should never be mixed, as they mean totally different things. Every state is an at-will employment state. Not all states are right to work states, as right to work only has to do with unions.
