Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining: America's Toughest Family Court Judge Speaks Out Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

¡n we get some reality in here?ߡsks Judy Sheindlin, former supervising judge for Manhattan Family Court. For twenty–four years she has laid down the law as she understands it:

● If you want to eat, you have to work.

● If you have children, you'd better support them.

  • If you break the law, you have to pay.

  • If you tap the public purse, you'd better be accountable.

    Now she abandons all judicial restraint in a scathing critique of the system – filled with realistic hard–nosed alternatives to our bloated welfare bureaucracy and our soft–on–crime laws.

Synopsis:

Addressing the issues that have Americans feeling angry, alarmed, and powerless--welfare abuse, street crime, teenage pregnancy, among others--Judge Judy Sheindlin demonstrates how the system permits and even promotes a lack of individual responsibility. She then offers real solutions on how to get this country back on track.

About the Author
