Wayne, et al,
This madness will stop when the courts start throwing out STUPID and
frivolous lawsuits and all the attorneys are reduced to selling vegtables
on the side of the road. (No offense to vegtable sellers) When the
American people start taking responsibility for thier own actions instead
of trying to find somebody with deep pockets (lots of money). When the
American people quit trying to become indepently wealthy because they
failed to take proper precautions to protect themselves.
Personally, I can hardly wait ! ! !
Think back to years past. When people lived on farms and small
communities, they (we) tended to be self sufficient and could take care of
ourselves. When someone came to the door, instead of not answering for
fear of robbery, we would welcome them into our homes and treat them like
family. When someone was hurt, we helped. We didn't wonder if he was
going to sue us! We were, afterall, helping him.
To all you lowlife, bottom feeders, sue everybody so that you can get
rich lawyers out there, Kiss my foot! ! !
Don't get me wrong, some lawyers are nice people and would help anybody
they could. I just haven't met many.
