This ain't the America of my youth. The America where we took responsibility for our actions. This story is so wrong on so many fronts- that I think I could write a mini-series about it.
Years ago, reporters asked me what was the single biggest problem facing our city. It was true in small town America and it is true everywhere else in America. We have a sociopathic need to blame everything and everybody else for our decisions and actions. When we don't like how our choices turn out- we find a thieving lawyer, agree to a contingency- and sue. People absolutely refuse to take responsibility for their actions. And there is an army of like minded people more than willing to enable them and profit from them. Starving lawyers are motivated lawyers.
We are circling the drain. Proof here. http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/jury-gives-parents-4-5-million-because-they-missed-chance-to-abort-disabled-son/
