A Great Analogy
January 5, 2010
Surfing the net I came across this great analogy describing the so called Tort Reform. This is exactly it–the attempt to prevent the little person, the regular folk, the You and I people to bring their grievance into a court of law and have other little people, other regular folks hear the evidence from both sides and render a judgment. And this only and only and only for the protection of the profits taken in by the Insurance Industry and nothing else.
If after David beat Goliath the government decreed that henceforth when people fight giants, they must do so with six-inch sling shots and pebbles instead of rocks, there would be a huge outcry of protest. However, the changes that are being imbedded in our legal system in the name of tort reform are attempting to do the same thing.
