I CAN'T STAND THEM ANYMORE! [url]http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/story.hts/editorial/1722302[/url] I sent that piece of intellectual flotsam the following e-mail:
Dear Ms. Thomas, Once again, your Leftist stupidity shines through in your column [i]Whose side are you on, Mr. President?[/i]. Do you actually propose that trial lawyers be free to impose [u]billion[/u]-dollar penalties against [u]individuals[/u] and [u]trillion[/u]-dollar penalties against [u]companies[/u]? That's the logical conclusion of your position. Do you actually believe that when a trial liar (Oops! I meant lawyer!) charges his client 40% of the take, that he actually has the interests of his [u]client[/u] in mind? Can you say [u]conflict of interest[/u]? Even now, doctors are leaving the practice in droves because they cannot afford to pay the liability insurance required to protect themselves from the sharks you are defending. What about the folks who rely on [u]them[/u] for medical care? Don't you care about [u]them[/u]? Of course not! [u]You're[/u] rich. You can afford to get top-notch care and pay for it out-of-pocket. Who's side are [u]YOU[/u] on, Ms. Thomas? Tell you what. You want unlimited penalties? Fine. But in return, [u]I challenge you to support a law that prohibits a lawyer from charging a client a percentage of the take[/u]. If he wants to charge $50,000 per hour, that's up to him and his client. If he wins the case, the client owes him for his time, [u]and that's it[/u]. If he loses, he must waive his fees (after all, he failed to provide the service he promised). Are you big enough to defend that? It sounds fair to me! The scum-sucking lawyer is still able to make a killing off the pain of others without contributing anything worthwhile to society, and the poor victim you pretend to care so much about can still be money-blinded when a loved-one dies! It's perfect! Oh, I know you won't support it, though. It's not as though logic has any place in the brain of a Liberal... Disgustedly, (My Name)

I copied Rush on it for good measure, just to see if it makes it on the air. Please send an appropriate e-mail to this idiot. I'm getting sick and tired of these dweebs running their mouths off and I'm through keeping my mouth shut! [Deep Breath.......] Okay, I feel a little better now....

Oh, yeah! You don't REALLY want to see me on a roll! [;)] Edited to add: Oh, yeah.... There's the WAR too! Candy-assed limp-wristed panty-waists lining up to claim that they support the President in his war on Terrorism, but then doing EVERYTHING they can to trip him up! Opposing EVERYTHING that has been proposed to improve our safety, but then WHINING that not enough has been done, while proposing NOTHING in return! Bitching about how we are no safer than we were a year ago, but then PREVENTING keeping track of the scumbags who enjoy doing September 11th-type activities because "we might offend someone"! Actually HOPING for another attack on America so that THEY can get their sorry asses back in power! [size=6][b][i][red]AAAARRRRGGGHHHHHH!!!!![/size=6][/b][/i][/red] Breath! Breath! Think pleasant thoughts! Hillary dead in a car crash!....... Ah.....that's better......

Indeed, do you have any strong feelings on the subject?

You know, this is the second thread I've started in as many days. Both have elicited zero responses. [sniff] I'm starting to feel unwanted... [/sniff] [>Q]

I just read that before I came over here. Actually, I read the first two lines and the veins in my neck started throbbing. Tort Reform is needed. The trial lawyers helen the troll supports aren't in it for 'consumer protection', they're in in for 'personal enrichment'. Why won't she just go away???

Hey, I say we support Mr. Beeblebrox (Zapohd) and give this bottom-feeder a flood of email telling Ms ThomASS what we think of her plan to bankrupt everyone and fill her pockets in the process. On Edit This is what I sent.
Ms. Thomas, I am completely for consumer protection, however, this is the job of the government agencies you listed in your article of 2 Jan, 2003 titled "Whose side are you on, Mr. President?" not trial lawyers like yourself. You have the audacity to view yourself as a proverbial "Knight In Shining Armor" coming to the aid of the defenseless consumer. Get over yourself. You are in the business of making a buck like the rest of us capitalists, looking out for your own interests above all others. If there is a cap on damage awards, which there should be, you stand to lose. No more million-dollar lawsuits involving hot coffee. There will be no more lawsuits making individuals independently wealthy. Plain and simple, you will lose money in this deal and you can not stand to see that. Recently, there was a news report dealing with the "crisis in healthcare" about doctors leaving their practices because they cant afford the premiums on malpractice insurance. These premiums are your doing. True, there are "doctors" out there who are absolutely at fault when they make a mistake. However, there are some, who lose their shirts in litigation because they mis-diagnosed a condition - a diagnosis that any other doctor would have made if put in the same position. If we lose all the doctors in my state, what am I to do? Your pockets will be full but I will be dead because there are no trauma surgeons left to operate on me if I sustain a horrible traffic accident going to work. Let me ask you, just whom do YOU feel compassion for Ms. Thomas? Sincerely, (my name)

You made a good point and something needs to be done especially concerning doctor's liability insurance costs. That concerns me more than the lawyers getting rich but in both cases we all pay for it. Your post was alot more worthwhile than some others I've responded to recently if that's any consolation.

Unless I am sorely mistaken, Helen Thomas is that old hag of a reporter that used to bitch at Reagan and Bush while giving long-distance kisses to Clinton. I'm not sure she's a trial lawyer.... Am i wrong, here? BTW, doesn't take away one iota from what you said... Edited to add: Thanks, wetidlerjr!

"Unless I am sorely mistaken, Helen Thomas is that old hag of a reporter that used to bitch at Reagan and Bush while giving long-distance kisses to Clinton. I'm not sure she's a trial lawyer.... Am i wrong, here?" I do know that she was(maybe still is?) the Senior White House news correspondent.

great, now I feel like a complete dip. See Kids, this is what happens when you let passions fuel the flame of logic. I think I will creep back into my hole now.

Wet, Yes, Helen Thomas is that same Marxist Socialist that gave Reagan and Bush Sr. such a hard time. She must be Nancy Pelosi's lesbian lover. The are both probably "vaga-tarians". CMOS

Let's use liberals as cruise missle warheads. I know if I thought one of these was being fired at me I'd crap my pants.

Nice letter. I sent Helen one a couple months ago and she basically replied "Fuck You!". Guess she's as opinionated as I am [:)]

I sent the Readers Digest condensed version: [b]Dear Ms. Thomas, FUCK OFF AND DIE! Respectfully, USNJoe[/b]
