I have a question. As the second part of the title of this thread ("fears rising")indicates, right wingers tend to have many fears. They see terrorists everywhere, they are afraid their guns are going to be taken away, they are afraid America will be taken over by illegal immigrants,etc.
So my question is: Why are right wingers such pussies?
Talk about fear. How do you think such a failed President like DumBama made it to a second term?

I guess that overt racism has become so unacceptable in polite society you have to hide it this way. In a way, that's a positive indicator of how much things have improved in the last 50 years...

See if you understand this: your cradle to gravers ruin things for everybody else. Millions of people enjoyed McDonalds hot coffee for decades, and all it takes is one loser to ruin it for everyone. But of course, that's the liberal mindset. I'm a liberal, and I can't figure out how to use punchcard ballots. Now the whole country has to change because of me. I don't have the intelligence to figure out McDonald's serves their coffee hot in spite of the hundreds of times I've ordered it. Now they will have to serve warm coffee because of me. Me, me, me. That's all liberals think about.
are you stoned? WTF are you talking about?

If you'd bothered to read the evidence, you'd see that in fact dozens if not hundreds had been burned by what was then dangerously hot coffee. McDonald's had settled out of court in most cases, and would have been wise to in this case, too. In the end they paid dearly for not doing so.
Spilling the coffee was her fault - being badly burned by spilled coffee was McDonald's fault. See if you can understand that.
You tell someone to read the evidence, really it would be review. You go on to say dozens if not hundreds have been burned. Thatís a large discrepancy which you choose to call a fact.

The coffee lawsuit did indeed draw attention frivolous civil suits. Coffee is supposed to be hot and isnít supposed to be place between your legs. The jury got it wrong, the old woman was completely at fault for placing hot coffee between her legs.

They didnít pay dearly as you put it. In 1994 their profits were close to one billion dollars. The final settlement was $480,000.

Wrong on every count, typically of a right-winger. You implied the case was about her holding the coffee between her legs on the car seat, it was not. Her "stupidity" (actually, it was an accident) was not what the case was about either. The temperature of the coffee WAS what the case was about - that and McDonald's unwillingness to simply settle out-of-court, as they'd done many, many times before in burning cases.
The temperature was far too hot, and caused severe burns. McDonald's lowered the temperature of their coffee to a more reasonable 150-155 degree range after losing the case. Too bad they couldn't have done that before this woman was injured, but then corporate types aren't very smart or concerned with consumer safety, are they?
You have no idea what this case was about, clearly.
First, I am not a right winger. Youíre always full of assumption. Iím not a left winger either. Do you really believe everyone is polarized?

No, it wasnít an accident. It was stupidity. You do not place hot coffee between your legs for any reason. Try this; go buy a cup of coffee anywhere. Remove the lid and place slight pressure on the sides of the cup.

The old woman was an idiot and the jury should have simply sent her home. Lunatic liberals believe the individual is never responsible for their own actions. It must be the fault of a corporation or the government. More rules, punish, any action is fine provided the individual isnít blamed.

Where did you get your 150 degree figure from? Itís wrong.

The warning label could very well be the cause of our demise. Before warning labels those stupid enough to use a hair dryer while in the tub would not have lived long enough to reproduce. Now they will produce a herd of parasites.

<quoted text>Yep, and don't do business with Dick's Sporting Goods either.

I refused to do business with BOA years ago when they introduced a policy of not requiring identification to open up accounts. This was aimed at the illegal aliens in our country. At the time, I had two accounts and closed them both. I told the operator on the phone that they should change their name to Bank of Mexico. Never did business with them since. So this little stunt doesn't surprise me. BOA is anti-American.
Unfortunately, Bank Of America (BOA) is the credit card company for Bass Pro Shops Rewards Credit Cards. I can't understand why a business that large would continue to use BOA as their Credit Card Provider, despite the massive number of gun sales they have annually.
BTW Google is right there with Dick's and BOA.

They ran their best and brightest minds of the GOP against him. If America had just over looked the 47% comment and the 15% tax rate and the offshore accounts to avoid taxes Mitt would have gotten more votes.

Really? Then please explain how your "smart and effective gun control" worked for the 500+ people murdered by firearms in Chcago last year. the city with the most strict gun control laws in the country.
