Ah, Thomas - I could write on this for a age or two. It is of course typical of the peasants at Newsmax that they neither quote Shakespeare correctly,
not attribute it (Henry VI Part 2); but the sentiments of Dick Butcher's words to Jack Cade are there.
Cade -rebel leader - incidentally, in the play, is talking about the abolition of money and the mob sees lawyers as the most money-grabbing,
worthless, unjust and oppressive sector of society imaginable. I guess we'd add accountants now.
I read not long ago that 0.5% of all Americans are in some sense lawyers - eek!
