Well the Liberal Leftists are again using their most devastating Weapon of Mass Destruction. The worst single weapon of destruction of society that ever existed. Abusive TORT LAW in The U.S. LEGAL SYSTEM.
The devastating frivilous Legalistic attacks toward a representative of the common class, a family woman
Tort Law as it exists in the USA, is wholly in the favor of the Plaintiff (the person filing the frivilous, politically driven lawsuit). The Defendant MUST hire Lawyers and pay court costs to prove innocence. The Defendant is immediately considered Guilty and endlessly portrayed as Guilty in the Liberal Left dominated Main Stream Media until they prove their OWN innocence.
Even after proving their innocence, their character is destroyed forever in gullible public opinion. Remember the years we all spent in U.S. K-12? Those same 'Players' are now dominating public opinion. The Plaintiff Loser in these Legal Battles is never out anything but their own time. The Loser is never assessed the costs of the Defendants legal expenses, no matter how expensive and destructive to the Defendant these 'Harrasment' costs escalate.
Our current society is favoring it's 'Losers' as bastions of 'Truth'?... Sick and Prophetic at the same time.
People in Prison have lots of time. Many, known as Jail House Lawyers, each have countless dozens of Harrasment motivated lawsuits pending against whatever state, county, government or individual they have chosen as a target. The Defendant most times, to avoid the exhorbitant expense of hiring lawyers, endless time away from work, pays to settle. In simple logic, EXTORTION. This cost is passed on to the consumer..you.
This system works well.... for Lawyers. They get paid no matter what the outcome. So what, if the case has absolutely no merit. When the Defendant settles, the lawyer filing the lawsuit gets a large percentage of 'The take'. The percentage is around 40% or more, after accounting shenanigans are presented to the court.
Years ago the Law firms that sued the tobacco companies
Another famous and of course endlessly Newsworthy 'Class Action' case involves ASBESTOS
The latest Extortion case is MOLD
Remember the endless News Hysteria cases against Ford for the Explorer
The Firestone Tire Company (Bridgestone) was sued near bankruptcy for tire failures most times related to underinflation caused, overheating. Just one example
Of course the 'Deep Pockets' are legion and were punished out of business or into Bankruptcy protection. Are You actually surprised why taking a business 'Off Shore' looks so good? It is infinetly more profitable and has far less risk in contrast to trying to do business in the 'Business Un-friendly' USA. Look at California. It is bankrupt as of 01 July 2009. Why are the un-employment numbers constantly climbing? Inflation, though hidden and un-reported, is tied directly to costs of doing business. Think about it.
Add on the legal expenses involved in every aspect of daily life and the cost is astronomical. The health care system in the USA is bound by Lawsuits at every minute detail. That is the ONLY reason it is prohibitively expensive. Medication alone is made up more of Legalistics than 'Product'. The lawsuits, which are the reason for these exhorbitant prices, are clogging our U.S. courts like a large excrement in a standard diameter waste drain.
Try renting a small deck boat
That same rental boat should cost no more than a days pay for a 'low average' working individual. Now the price is set only for the Lawyers to afford and flaunt as they take 'their friends' for an alcoholic party day on the lake. The San Angelo Texas City Park system at one time reasonably rented paddle boats, canoes, and even low powered outboards for the average family to enjoy.
A couple of years ago, the City of San Angelo Texas, Risk Management (lawyers), was terrified of a lawsuit and rid itself of all forms of family use craft. The docks are still located on the old City Park site of Lake Nasworthy. It is now designated as a 'nature center'. That city park is not the fun filled family place it once was. The fear of devastating legal costs is wide spread and now affects every individual and every item of life in the USA.
Attorneys will NEVER
Naturally they attack only those with 'Deep Pockets'. City, County, State, Federal tax dollars are some of the deepest... after taxpaying, job providing corporations. The taxpayers pay for the defense as well as the prosecution. What a great cow to 'milk'. I am surprised that 'the Cow' even has an Udder left after these endless attacks by the primal wolves of society, it's leaders, and their lacky minions
The government of the USA now has almost every position of power, from the President on down, filled with Attorneys. There is no way in the world THEY will change this system of 'wellfare' for all lawyers, most notably Political Lawyers of course.
I was reading about ancient Romes system of The Roman Republic
It lasted for over 450 years before it was dragged by civil warfare into the intensely corrupt system of Imperial Rome
Of course they were allowed to stay in Power as long as they lived... They lived as long as they still had money. They used taxes and fees to support their lifestyle, and Corruption to maintain power. They owned their own military Forces Praetorian Guard
Have you been reading about the rapidly escalating costs to the U.S. taxpayers, to support the wonderful 'fact finding' vacations of the latest Congressional members? To say nothing of the POTUS and his extravagant, and controversial, world tours. The costs to taxpayers have more than doubled in just the last several years. These career politicians fight like Pitbulls to maintain their power. No threat to their power goes un-punished by the 'BULLY' of Their Tort Courts.
Just because she was asked to be the running mate for the candidate running against BHO, 'The POTUS'. (now often referred to in Russia as 'The Entertainer')
Could it be that Sarah Palin
This TORT Lawsuit insanity has no supporters anywhere in the world, other than here, the Lawyer Infested USA. How totally backward and hamstrung our society has allowed itself to become under the heavy handed pressure of the Political Lawyers.
The immense bulk of 'deposited' currency was withdrawn and left the USA in the later half of 2008... as soon as it became apparent that BHO was on the Main Stream Media track to become the next POTUS with Homeland Security as his Cohorts
Rid the USA of Abusive TORT LAW
