They came for the Jews and I didn’t speak up!
Usually I save my passion and outrage for the government but at times it spills over into the private sector. This issue particularly infuriates me because it is an obvious manifestation of a growing segment of our society; the same segment that voted overwhelmingly for the Prince of Change, “The something for Nothing –You Owe Me Everything Group! So what are they up to now; the Wynn casino employee are suing the Wynn Casino over secondhand smoke!
This group is given a voice through one of the main supporters and contributors to the Democratic Party and Barrack Hussein Obama, the Trial Lawyers. They all but ruined the Tobacco Industry a few years back destroying tobacco Companies alleging they conned smokers who were concerned about their health by labeling cigarette packets with such words as 'light' or 'lights'. The result of the class action suit was the tobacco companies were hit with a $200 billion dollar loss! This travesty was the result of the something for nothing crowd amongst us, in this case the smokers, being herded like sheep into a class action suit by the same Trail Lawyer bunch that patrols the seas of life like hungry sharks awaiting the next school of corporate fish to swim by!
When will America wake up? No one put a gun to these people’s heads and made them smoke! No one makes fat people continue to eat McDonald’s Big Macs and Fries! I enjoy an alcoholic beverage; no one makes me drink it! This recent absurd travesty falls in line with the aforementioned list; no one made these dealers take the jobs which supposedly exposed them to that Horrid Second Hand Smoke. But rest assured, Barrack Hussein Obama, Mmmm-Mmm-Mm and his band of merry Trial Lawyers will ride to their rescue. So what’s next after the Wynn; sue M.GM., then Paris, then New York-New York, then Caesar’s Palace and on and on and on! One day we’ll tell our grandchildren about this magical place in the middle of the desert called Vegas where people could go to have fun!
So, if you’re thinking so what, I don’t smoke, drink alcohol, eat at McDonalds or visit Vegas I offer the well known quote by German anti-Nazi activist, Pastor Martin Niemöller:
In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
