The ritch getting ritcher....
    #524296 - 01/18/02 10:40 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

In an effort to save several businesses and the struggleing airline industry along with hundreds of thousands of jobs in the U.S. the government proposed a plan to bail out those who need it and protect those who need protection...

Its pretty plain and simple, People dont have the right to sue the airline industry over what happened on Sept 11th.. And in giving up that right the government will pay the families... Here is what they get. $150,000 a year till 1.6 million is reached for the surviving wife or husband or oldest son or daughter (if their is no spouse) and an additional $50,000 for each additional child. Meaning that a wife with 2 kids will get $250,000 a year till 1.6 Million has been paid to the family..
If the family applys for their own life insurance or recieves retirement, 401K, and other benefits as a result of Sept11th then they get that deducted out of the 1.6 million. sounds fair to me... Sounds fair to thousands of struggleing families who once lived a decent middle class life with a small savings like most of us do...

Heres the clinctcher.... Their were hundreds of people killed in the attack who were making ALOT of money and the families of these people are complaining that because their family made more then they should get more.. These are people with a million dollars in the bank worrying about possibly losing their summer home in the hamptons and trying to get a bigger chunk of the pie for themselvs while the majority are worrying that they may have to sell the one house that they have and file for bankruptcy.

If people had the right to sue then for sure the airline industry would crumble under huge punitive dammage settlements and hundreds of thousands MORE jobs would be lost, manufacturing contracts would be cancled and more jobs would be lost, tourism, trade, industry, we would see an even bigger los accross the board. Some busineses lost hundreds of employees in the attack, if they had to pay out everything on each one of them all those businesses would go under and their insurance companies would to if they had to pay out all that at once.

Right now their are a thousand widdows of American business Fat Cats sitting on their leather sofa worrying that they might have to get a job and actualy work for themselvs if they cant get enough money out of this. And their are thousands of families who made a modest living who now have no more savings, have already got jobs to make ends meet and are looking at selling off all their posessions to stay alive...

Whose side R U on?

Wow, it must be nice to have loved ones die in terrorist attacks.

Heres the clinctcher.... Their were hundreds of people killed in the attack who were making ALOT of money and the families of these people are complaining that because their family made more then they should get more.. These are people with a million dollars in the bank worrying about possibly losing their summer home in the hamptons and trying to get a bigger chunk of the pie for themselvs while the majority are worrying that they may have to sell the one house that they have and file for bankruptcy.

It's too bad more of these people didn't die. :sad:

What a world...

The wives were not probraly allowed to work. They were homemakers, suppressed by the evil u.s. government. We need to liberate them, let them take off their ally mcbeal styling dresses, and show them just how glorifying the art of farming is. Otherwise they will never know how deprived they were.

Rain on the scarecrow, blood on the plow. This land fed a nation, this land made me proud.

Come on ladies, take this opportunity to find your true calling... agriculture.

I saw that one lady on television. The wife of that billionaire british stockbroker. She did not seem mentally stable. Can you imagine all those years raised in a environment where she kept down, from making billions, never knowing the true secrets that her husband used. Obviosly she was just after the stock broking secrets. But still can you believe she never knitted towles 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, she was obviously repressed, in some sort of ancient chinese bondage mind control. So at least she is free, to work now.
I wonder what type of job she might take up now besides the blowjob secretary. At least she can start to take off those dresses, and wear blue jeans! like a typical american woman.

If anyone should be sued it should be the terrorists.

And about that whole compensation for the families of those, well it doesnt make too much sense. It is the fault of the government that the terrorists did attack, it is the actions of the American government and the army that provoked the attack on the united states. But the terrorists are also at fault (obviously). Its not the american governments fault that the terrorists believe what they do, and it is their beliefs that provoked the attack. So what about all those starving people on the street in the US? Is it the governments responsibility to take care of them? It seems to me that the US government has more of a responsibility to make sure its citizens are being fed than to compensate families hurt by sept. 11. I'm not saying the government has a responsibility to take care of it's citizens, I'm only saying it has more of a responsibility to take care of its citizens then those families of sept11 victims, unless of coure the families of sept11 are pushed into poverty and are unable to eat.

Another point to be raised it where is this money comming from. Money doesnt appear out of nowhere, the money used to compensate the victims is tax money. Is it right to forcibly take money from a generally poor person and give it to a wealthier family? The US calls itself a democracy, so shouldn't taxpayers have a say in where their money is going? Also, around 4000 people died on sept11 by terroeists, but what about the other millions of people that die every year and their families are pushed into poverty. Do victims of sept11 have more of a right to financial aid then people killed in a different manner at a different time? Should cause of death determine weather or not a family recieves thousands of dollars from the government?
