Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

sadly, our litigious society has come to a point where you can sue for most anything. You do not have to have a good reason, a moral or ethical stand; you sue because the law allows and the legal system awards huge punitive judgements. Many lawyers are getting very rich helping people win such judgements and many hard-working employees of companies are on the losing end as their employer struggles to remain competitive. What happened to personal responsibility? Why is it suddenly acceptible in American society to be able to accept no blame or ownership for one's own actions? "It's not my fault so who can I possibly blame?" echoes here like finger nails on a chalk board.

It is, indeed, unfortunate any time a woodworker or any craftsman is injured. I do feel badly for this particular person but the amount of money paid for the accident....repeat, an accident just promotes even more greed and even more absolution of personal integrity and responsibility the next time.

This is only a chapter in the sad commentary on how far all American business and our society in general has fallen.
