People are ranting about the H.J. Rogers of old. One can only wonder who these folks are talking about, as they could not possibly have any contact with this unique man in recent years.

H. John's nom de plume at the Intelligencer website wouldn't happen to be Chokingsmoker, would it?

We know from sad, even tragic, personal experience that more stuff like this, and far worse, goes on than people know. If you are absolutely forced to have to deal with an attorney, any attorney, you would be well-served to enter the relationship with the preconception that he/she is crooked and predatory, is looking for a way to take advantage of you; and, adjust your vigilance accordingly. If your attorney tells you something, but won't put it in writing, walk out the door and shake the dust off your sandals. Notable, isn't it, that the attorney herein, according to the article, engaged in publicly outrageous and disruptive behavior, in front of multiple witnesses, yet some commentators in this section still praise him?

If you are forced to deal with a Banker,any Banker, you would be well served to enter the relationship with the preconceived notion that he/she is crooked and predatory and is looking for a way to take advantage of you and adjust your vigilance accordingly.

If you are forced to deal with an Insurance Adjuster, any Insurance Adjuster or Drug Dealer, you would be well served to enter the relationship with the preconceived notion that he/she is crooked and predatory and is looking for a way to take advantage of you.

Sounds like a bad day at the massage parlor. Perhaps Mr. Rogers didn't receive the full Monty at the massage parlor that he was expecting.

If you are absolutely forces to deal with a Doctor, any Doctor, you would be well served to enter the relationship with the perceived notion that he or sh is crooked or predatory and looking to take advantage of you and adjust your vigilance accordingly. If your Doctor tells you something and won't put it in writing, don't trust him because West Virginia has put limits on medical malpractice and you can only receive $1000 for he or she cutting off the wrong leg.

One thing is for sure, H.John Rogers is a lot of things to different people. BORING is not one of them.

I'm not surprised Mr.Rogers lost his license. I've seen him make poor choices in the past. Brilliant mind, bad impulse control, bad manners and mad man.

In my too many years spent in Tokyo I learned two truisms that come to mind.

1. If you are well educated, smart and offer advice and counsel to the mobs it is, 'like casting gold coins before cats'.

2. if you are smart, articulate and have views that are not in broad agreement with the majority .....well, 'the nail that stands out must be pounded down'.

From the article "Rogers ... began 'yelling, using profanity and gesturing to Jeffrey Shade.' ... Rogers returned to the cafe later that same day, continuing to yell and gesture at those inside. He then reportedly said, 'Hear no evil, see no evil, pure evil.'"

Yeah, Rover. Just another "smart, articulate" Democrit. There seem to be a lot of those in WV politics... LOL

From the article “At a 1980 press conference he convened to declare he was running for U.S. Senate, Rogers punched a reporter in the face with cameras rolling after being asked about his own stay in a mental health facility.”

Are you sure he didn’t go to Woody Hayes U, rover? He seems pretty Hayesesque to me...

Troll -

Perhaps the Reporter deserved a good punch in the face.

As the great writer E.E. Cummings said, 'There is some shiet I will not eat'.

Don’t be silly, rover. Now you’re sounding like GETACLUE. Or Padlow. If you’re going to punch a reporter in the face, at least track him down at a bar later and do it off camera. Duh...

And by the cummings reference, are you saying Rogers’s assault of a reporter for being asked about his time in a mental health facility can be compared with conscientious objector Olaf’s refusal, under torture, to go to war? Amusing comparison...

As the not-so-great lawyer h.j. rogers said, “You want that camera shoved up your ***, buddy?”

Want to see "smart, articulate" H. John Rogers in action? Here's a you-tube too-funny moment. It's moments like these that give West Virginia its worldwide Buckwild reputation.
