Nope...your a PERFECT example of half of whats wrong in here. You DIDN'T read what I said. I said there is no value to put on a human life. It has NOTHING to do with money. It has everything to do with how she acts. Read her posts. Not once does she admit that her dad MAY have been at fault. When anyone questions how this happened, she jumps in to say that person is attacking her dad. They didn't attack her dad, they suggested possible causes for the accident. Someone mentions offical 911 transmissions and they immediately ASSUME it's a cop or emt leaking information. The scanner transmissions can be found online I'm sure. Radio transmissions are NOT secret. Anyone with a scanner or computer can listen to them. No one has to leak the info. If anyone is doing the attacking it's the family on people just looking for answers. In my example, if I did hit her house, I'd be right there saying I messed up. You'll never hear that come out of her mouth. You can just tell what kind of person she is just by reading her posts. It has a lot to do with taking responsibility. Or just being responsible. No one knows how this happened....yet. If we ever learn what happened, and it does come back as something he did wrong, do you think we'll ever see a post from her then? Doubt it. That's the point of my post. It's not at all about money. But to answer your comments. One a bridge costs a lot more than $200,000. There is auto insurance which will pay for most of the damage but not all. On the flip side, I think I've heard something about life insurance a time or two.
I did read your post, several times. I think you are the one who needs to read it again. You mention nothing in that post about admitting fault under any scenario. You mention nothing about responsibility. All you mention is that the taxpayers of PA are out something too referring to the amount of money it cost to fix the bridge.

And yes you did admit that there is no cost to be placed on the loss of a parent, but you did make a comparison between the loss of the parent and the loss of the bridge. You came across as being more concerned about your tax money going to fix something you didn't break vs. saying none of the family is admitting any fault on the driver's behalf.

Hey MRSF, I just lost a parent too. Did that mean I didn't have to pay my taxes this year? I was very sad. Why is the IRS attacking me so? And if this year isnt bad enough, they are going to attack me again next year when they make me file the final return. Whats wrong with them?

I must agree that no matter who was at fault for the accident and no matter what happened as a result of the accident, responsibilty needs to be accepted. Do you really believe that if they arrested someone for DUI and cutting the trucker off that the family wouldnt already have an attorney working on a lawsuit against the drunk driver. They wouldn't be to sad for that. They would expect money to cover the drunks responsibility.

2 totally different things. Go back and read the previous post from the person i responded to, then read mine...maybe it will make more sense than to just read the response.

so it's all about U. all about what U lost. real nice. i agree you lost something that you cant put a price tag on...a dad. but the taxpayers of PA are out a lot of money and you don't give a dam. you think we should just feel sorry for you and screw what we are out. what if i drove my $200,000 sports car through your $800 front porch? is it ok to expect you to feel sorry for me and my totaled car and not give a care about your porch? Thats exactly what you are expecting from us. We DO feel sorry for you but we also expect you to understand we are out something too.
so I'm a selfish bitch. Okay hun it's a life a bridge can get fixed but my dad cant so u need to stop

Another accident on the interstate tonight involving a semi and several cars. Could you just imagine how many accidents there would be if all those truckers weren't professional drivers? Thank God for those super safe driving truckers!!!!! Oh and thanks for getting my clothes to the store too.

There's not many things worse than an imagination gone wild, and yours has got quite a grip on you, IIWLAD!!

Take two aspirin and get a good night's sleep and see if everything looks back to normal in the morning.

I'll be gone again. I'm actually getting much better at staying away,(couple weeks this time) but had a small relapse tonight.

It's been fun!!

Yeah twtl, those last series of shock treatments didn't help at all did they? You still have those extra personalities in that head of yours. Face it, you will never be cured. So I suggest you stay away forever. But then your other personalities, becksnapback, facually and actually will still be typing away. One question, what's fun for ya when you are getting your ass whopped big time? LMAO

Speaking of accidents, isn't that how you got here? I bet your parents tried to give you away ....and had no luck. Poor things, bet they had to put up with plenty with a wackjob like you.

Never guess....another accident tonight involving a trucker....rammed the back of a stopped van causing a fire that kills the driver and her two dogs. That wasn't enough...he also took out the street lights in that intersection. He must have been running late getting my clothes to the store.

And how many automobile accidents were there today? In the last month how many people died from the result of a truck accident as compared to the number that perished in automobile accidents? Yes, trucks have accidents that can cause deaths. However, how often do you hear or read about deaths involving just automobiles. I'm sure if you check statistics you'll see that automobile accidents win by a landslide. They must have been late getting to the store to buy the clothes that the truck delivered.

if you are not fimilar with the area and have never been there during foggy weather you do not understand. years ago our neighbors had the same thing happen to them, same intersection, they were fortunate and not hurt. Take a drive up there in the fog, you'll figure out why it was called an accident.
