The flaw in your counter-argument is that the jumper is not acting recklessly, the driver was and that recklessness resulted in the deaths of others.
Jumping from a highway bridge is illegal in most places and parking one's car in the middle of the bridge would be reckless.

The larger point is that you cannot be held responsible for that which someone unknown to you does voluntarily.

That is a little extreme when the employer is paying most of the cost and offering nothing in return if you decline the insurance.
Oh I always got higher pay for declining the insurance. Just sign a paper saying I wouldn't demand it later. The higher pay went a long ways towards paying my premium. So basically I got the insurance I wanted (catastrophic) at very little cost.

<quoted text>"GENEROUS taxpayer subsidies of more than $100 million helped drive Ford Australia to a $24.9 million after-tax profit for 2010.
It is a $12.2 million profit increase over 2009's $12.7 million profit, and contrasts with a loss of $274 million in 2008.
The bulk of the $100.8 million government subsidy came as credits from the federal government's Automotive Competitiveness and Investment Scheme (ACIS), as well as grants from the now-halted Green Car Innovation Fund, and the Victorian government.
''It's a pretty pleasing set of results from our perspective,'' Ford Australia chief financial Frank Lazzaro said."

The Australian government looks pretty good at 'picking winners over losers'.
So, a good and reliable ally of the United States, Australia, lured a multinational American Ford Motor Company with tax money to expand and produce cars there rather than in the Ford parent company home base of auto factories in Detroit. Why did Ford Motor Company stop caring and just shuck off their traditional obligations to American auto workers and communities here that made them the huge , multi-national auto giant that they are now?
Probably because they could build cars for the Australian market at lower cost and better quality in Australia.

'Government debt' has never proved to be the cause of recessions---for example Ronald Reagan claimed that government deficits were not the problem, the growth and expansion of government bureaucracy was a problem --and what drove that unprecedented growth in government bureaucracy was the unregulated growth and expansion of globalization --Rein in the disastrous effects of globalization , like President Barack Obama has wanted to do by reducing our global military over reach and rewarding American companies who stayed loyal to their social obligations at home , follow the rules against off-shoring capital and labor costs,refuse to do business with countries who subsidize businesses that exploit the cheap poorer labor pool in third world countries, make safe, environmentally beneficent products , and protect their American labor force with livable wages and benefits .

A scumbag dead is a scumbag dead (and its all good); ethnicity need not even enter into it. Its only a tragedy when a decent, innocent is the victim.

The fact there is a higher percentage of negro scumbags per capita is undeniable (nice try though)....:-)

Galt has no earthly idea why Mexicans first came to the US for seasonal work or why the were able to move along with the harvests while the nations traditional farm workers, blacks and Southern whites were not.

Galt has no understanding of contract growers, or contract harvesting crews. Galt doesn't get that 10,000 completely unknown, undocumented persons are welcome to harvest tomatoes, apples and such but a black guy showing up with an ID has no prayer of being hired and might end up being quizzed by the police.
