I can't think one single politician ever came up with the idea of collective actions against large companies (insurance/telecom/banks...etc) ripping off individual consumers by way of fine-prints (but if they do, as with labour union, they need do this globally)
At least 5 of those I first heard in the 80's and were racist in those days. I guess lawyers are fair cop even today
Here's my favourite:
Joan and Fred were just on their way to get married when both were killed in a car accident.
They get to the pearly gates together and ask St Peter
"We were on our way to get married when we died, is it ok for us to still get married in heaven?"
St Peter says he will find out and disappears into heaven.
He's gone a long, long time. Days pass, weeks, months and finally he returns.
"Yes, you can get married here in heaven", says St Peter as he opens the gates to heaven.
Just the Fred pipes up, "St Peter, while you were gone we were discussing things, and we had one more question,
Say we get married, ut things dont work out and we decide we want to separate - can we get divorced in heaven?"
St Peter replies, "It took me 4 months to find a priest in heaven, how long do you think it'll take me to find a lawyer?"
