    I heard that on the radio on the way in today. Disgusting.

    I guess it goes back to the old legal adage: "The person at fault is the person with the deepest pockets"

    Some Friends of Ours lost their Daughter when a lady backed out of their driveway with Her Windstar. So I guess it was Ford's fault:rolleyes:

    Hell, when I mowed lawns as a teenager, that was the only way to get it done sometimes. You're on a steep hill, so you can't go up and down the hill... so instead you go back and forth across it.

    Some people make me want to hit them with a lead pipe.

    Read the facts on that one and it makes perfect sense compared to everything since.

    OK here we go.lawyers started all this crap.i argue with the wife all the time about it, with the commercials on TV everyone is a "victim".people need to stop blaming everyone else for their own short comings,if you screw up IT'S YOUR FAULT.who is dumb enough to try to trim their hedges with a lawn mower? it has happened and thats why I have to start my mower everytime i need to move something.when i grew up i just let it run moved said object and moved on.and who is dumb enough to leave little kids around running machinery anyway?,the same asswipe that leaves there kid in the car to pay for gas.then comes out crying "where is my babies".I'M so tired of 3 pages of saftey s..t before i get to see how to use a product.and you can't even pic a warning lable off half the off road toys cuz its riveted on.:mad: if i was on that juey i would recomend a punch in the mouth and six monthes of jail for being an idiot. the plantiff would also pay all court costs.
