  1. Based on the above Jaelyn comment let me say I would read Turley all day, rather than that subject myself to that “unafraid” drivel.
    And as far as Robert goes, when you can speak with the legal clarity that a Turley does it is fair game to promote your knowledge. No different than an engineer, architect, doctor or any other professional designation.

    And guess what? The only “profession” in every country in the world that does not have a qualification of any kind attached to it is….. wait for it….. POLITICIAN.

  2. Turley often uses the royal “we” in citing his past writings (“As we said earlier …) He doesn’t tell us who the other part of the “we” is–perhaps no one else wants to claim responsibility. But please notice that in these blog headlines he also seems to refer to himself in the third person (” Turley to testify ….”). No one could be a better press agent for Turley than Turley.
