The Politically Incorrect Show - 13/02/2001

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Tuesday February 13, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd., the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit, & excellence, against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.

[Music up, music down!]

You'll recall the story that came through on Friday about Canadians being up in arms over a court judgment that awarded $300,000 to an Ontario woman who sued her employer for allowing her to drive away drunk from an office Christmas party. She had gone on to a pub with friends, then attempted to drive home in stormy weather, colliding head-on with a truck at 9pm, five hours after she had left her workplace. Her employer, who had offered to call her husband to drive her home, to drive her home himself or pay her cab fare, was found to be 25% responsible - the judge said he "ought to have anticipated the possible harm that could have happened to her &, in fact, taken positive steps to prevent her from driving home." How much responsibility was the woman deemed to bear? None - her IRRESPONSIBILITY was rewarded with $300,000 of her employer's money. Perpetrator became victim, innocent party became guilty party. This is depravity, through & through, akin to the situation in this country where subsidised irresponsibility is a way of life.

No prizes, though, for guessing where it all started. Just prior to the Canadian court ruling, the following e-mail appeared on the Libertyloop. It says it all:

"Let's see if I understand the current state of personal responsibility in America:

"If a woman burns her thighs on the hot coffee she was holding in her lap while driving, she blames the restaurant.

"If your teen-age son kills himself, you blame the rock 'n' roll  musician he liked.

"If you smoke three packs a day for 40 years and die of lung cancer, your family blames the tobacco company.

"If your daughter gets pregnant by the football captain, you blame the school for poor sex education.

"If your neighbor crashes into a tree while driving home drunk, you blame the bartender.

"If your cousin gets AIDS because the needle he used to shoot heroin was dirty, you blame the government for not providing clean ones.

"If your grandchildren are brats without manners, you blame television.

"And, if your friend is shot by a deranged madman, you blame the gun manufacturer.

"God bless America, land of the free, home of the blame."
