we think this way now

I received this missive in an email from Jill Wilson and I think she displays a good take on the world today.


Let's see if I understand how the world works lately...

If a man cuts his finger off while slicing salami at work, and gives it to his wife to put in Wendy's chili... he blames the restaurant.
If you smoke three packs a day for 40 years and die of lung cancer,
your family blames the tobacco company.
If your neighbor crashes into a tree while driving home drunk, he blames the bartender.
If your grandchildren are brats without manners, you blame television.
If your friend is shot by a deranged madwoman, you blame the gun manufacturer.
I must have lived too long to understand the world as it is anymore.

So, if I die while my old, wrinkled butt is parked in front of this computer, I want you to blame Bill Gates...okay?


I immediately thought of you when i received it! I cannot take credit for the content though. I received it from a friend who received it from a friend.........

"If your neighbor crashes into a tree while driving home drunk, he blames the bartender."

He's just a "party" to the lawsuit. Along with the bar and the auto dealer. But, the real "deep pockets" they go after are the auto manufacturer. Really. I have the experience.

Goddam right. When I go blind from staring at this fucking idiot box I am going to sue the fuck out of Bill Gates. He can afford to make all of us comfortable and still remain rich himself.

When my hand that is swollen up like a softball from shooting 1000 round through my Desert Eagle .44M doesn't return to normal size in a few days, I am going to sue the gun maker.

When I lose my mind from reading this blog, I am going to ask that someone drag me off and shoot me before I sue Rob.

If I ever sue anybody for anything frivolous, or stupid or something that was my fault, I hope someone shoots my got-dam ass and the got-dam sorry son-of-a-bitch lawyer that took the case.

That's what's wrong with our country. Lazy ass, good for nothing people that make their living off of suing others for no good reason. Fuck'em. They all need to be dragged off and shot. Preferably before they pro-create.

Excusitus _ everyone needs an excuse for their bad behaviour cause it couldn't possibly be their fault.

I agree with this post and the comments, especially about people who file law suits for a living. Having worked in a law firm, I've seen my share of gold-bricking sue-happy clients that I know were lying -- all of them white people btw -- but what I don't understand, is why you're not equally disgusted with George Bush for excusing his mistakes by blaming others.

I'm not trying to start an argument, nor am I being snarky. I'm genuinely curious why you don't apply the sames rules of conduct to our president.

I get upset and deranged reading blogs. Especially this one. Can I sue Rob for everything he's got? My eyeballs hurt now.It's all his fault I stare blankly at the screen, mesmerized by the comments. And Gates is behind it all.
