I LOVE YOU BUT I WANTED YOU DEAD

Ariel Knights, 22-year old unwed mother of a pre-schooler, found herself pregnant again, even though she learned during her first pregnancy she had uterine didelphys.  The genetic condition results in a double uterus with individual cervices. After being told the second pregnancy could put her life at risk, she went to a clinic to have […]

ARE WE BECOMING A NATION OF THIN-SKINNED WHINERS?

America is getting soft and here’s why.  Everyday, I see and read about more complainers, cry-babies, and thin-skinned whiners.  Whatever happened to the old adage, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me”?  It seems that, now, everyone is offended by something and everyone is willing to don a cap […]

And Who Didn’t Know This???

Who watches football and doesn’t know it’s a dangerous sport?  Then again, who plays football and doesn’t realize it’s a dangerous sport? Apparently, 2,000 former NFL players.  That’s who. According to their 80 lawsuits which have been consolidated, these guys are claiming that “despite its knowledge and controlling role in governing player conduct on and […]

Gloria Allred – Speaking of Cannibals

You probably heard about Rudy Eugene, who was caught on camera eating the face off of Ronald Poppa, a 65-year old homeless man, alongside a highway in broad daylight in Florida.  Eugene was fatally shot by a Miami police officer during the attack. Well, guess who’s crawled out of the woodwork once again.  That’s right.  […]

EVERY INJURY SHOULDN’T RESULT IN A LAWSUIT – BUT THAT’S JUST ME

In my opinion, fifty-eight year old, Gayane Zokhrabov, has too much time on her hands.  Or maybe her lawyer does.  I’m not sure.  You decide which one is the bonehead.  You might decide neither. At the same time Zokhrabov was waiting for a commuter train, 18-year old Hiroyuki Joho decided to cross the tracks but […]

I See Dumb People

I guess we have to start out with the premise that you’re probably dumb if you’ve ended up in jail.  So it shouldn’t surprise me when I read about really dumb lawsuits filed by some inmates. If you’ve read anything I’ve written about prisons, you’ll know that I don’t get why prisoners get for free […]

I See Dumb People

A Texas woman is suing Continental Airlines for mental trauma she claims she sustained because of turbulence. Yep, Colleen O’Neal claims that while on a flight from College Station, Texas, to Houston, in October 2009, the plane encountered extreme turbulence that caused her to fear for her life. She claims to have experienced post-traumatic stress […]

CRYBABIES ‘r US

We’ve become a nation of whiners and complainers and willing to sue just about anyone because we’re too fat, too thin, too short, too tall.  That’s why we have so many labels warning us of the obvious.  Can anyone tell me why they would lick a computer circuit board even if they didn’t know it […]

I See Dumb People

I’m not sure who is dumber, the child-molesting teacher or her lawyer. Ann Knopf pleaded guilty in October 2008 for having sex with a 13-year old in her home while her family members slept.   She was civilly sued by the boy and his father for sexual assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.  With […]
