Kevin’s really gone full bore into advocacy.
One thing he neglected to mention – this is a class action. It is not intended to be on behalf of solely one man.
And, of course, it’s a Canadian case under a different system.
I like the causal theory. Problem is, it could just as easily have transmitted the other way, or both from some other source.
“It’s not about the money.”
When people make this kind of statement they should sign a piece of paper that says that they are donating all that money they get to a certain charitable organization.
Actually they (and the sodomizers) should say they’ll donate it to patient safety commitees. Since “it’s all about patient safety” Does it really matter though? The sodomizers don’t get away with this crap in Canada anyway. John Edwards wouldn’t get elected Dog-catcher in Quebec.
“It’s never been about the money,” she said. “We’ve been to the hospital and seen what they go through …. my dad has been hooked up to IVs in his arms and a huge one in his neck because of kidney failure, his stomach is all bruised up from being a pin cushion, and we still have no answers.”
I’m sorry her father is so sick, but absolutely it’s about the money.
We live in a world of greed. I don’t buy her statement – not that I could afford it!- for a second!
If this case is successful (It’ll be thrown out in a frivolous minute, it’s more likely I’ll get to bang Halle Berry), Can I sue my city if I get the Bird Flu? Isn’t it their job to shoot every single bird that flies into the city?
“His family is baffled because Glover lives in a building across the parking lot from the home, and they say he hasn’t even been in Seven Oaks.”
Interesting notion of causality. Was he stealing air-conditioned air from the neighbor building’s chillers?
“”It’s not about the money.”
Right. It is about trying to fatten up dad’s estate so that the greedy kids can inherit a bundle. I just wonder how can they say this with a straight face.
Do they not prosecute fraudulent claims in Canada?
“Do they not prosecute fraudulent claims in Canada? “
Why would they? They don’t in the US, do they? Instead, they throw them out in 5 minutes. In the US, this guy would get a top-notch lawyer, a spot on Court TV, and a book deal.
