First, I appreciate the apology as you sure don't get this much in these forums.Mike,
Sorry to accuse you of being a fundamentalist.
You're right about people taking responsibility and having more forethought. But that's in a perfect world.
You are right, this is in a perfect world. I sure don't have the answer to make people more responsible and accountable but if we continue to cater to them, when will it ever change?
That is part of the problem with the world today, we sue someone because we make a stupid decision (I always love the McDonalds coffee lady as the perfect example since I have never seen a cup of coffee that wasn't hot but she sued McDonalds for it).
We all pay a higher cost for products because we have so many people who cannot make good decisions and when they make a bad decision, they sue or try to force the government to put yet another law in place.
When and where will it end, your guess is as good as mine.
