If one were to look down on this page two to three articles below, there is an article about a 17-year-old girl who was in the grasp of death with Leukemia.
That scenario in and of itself has got to render parents, family, and friends just wondering what it’s all about…life that is. As the story goes Cigna Insurance dragged their feet on various medical expenditures that, or so the parents thought, would benefit their daughter.
It was not long after their daughter passed on that they (probably at the prompting of an attorney) decided to sue Cigna, one of the largest insurance companies in the world.
Moral of my story based on this article: Frivolous law suits, ad nauseum simply don’t belong in burdening or bogging down the system. Days of the ‘slip and fall, or personal injury, or product liability cases should be over by now. Let’s use the courts for what they were intended for.
Which brings me to today’s article; however, just a little commentary before we launch into this load of rubbish though.
One notion that concerns me is this ‘discrimination’ babble. Please anyone, correct me if I’m wrong here; however, seems to me that the entire Discrimination Acts were originally designed and approved as a means of non-discriminatory practices in the workplace. Title VII of the United States Codes as well as Senate Bill 78 was passed to stop the discrimination and harassment practices in the workplace.
This is not to suggest that either of these practices is acceptable; simply because they are not. Moreover, as far as the fabric of the United States is concerned we should be taught at a very early age that this behavior is wrong and inappropriate. So now onto our story:
240,000 dollars in compensation, campaigners said Monday
An airline passenger was asked to cover his T-shirt because it displayed Arabic script has been awarded 240,000 dollars in compensation, campaigners said Monday.
Raed Jarrar received the pay out on Friday from two US Transportation Security Authority officials and from JetBlue Airways following the August 2006 incident at New York’s JFK Airport, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced.
Jarrar was apprehended as he waited to board a JetBlue flight from New York to Oakland, California, and told to remove his shirt, which had written on it in Arabic: “We will not be silent.”
He was told other passengers felt uncomfortable because an Arabic-inscribed T-shirt in an airport was like “wearing a T-shirt at a bank stating, I am a robber,'” the ACLU said.
Jarrar agreed to cover his shirt with another provided by JetBlue. He was allowed aboard aircraft and continue with his travel plans.
In lieu of September 11, 2001 when such devastation was delivered to our country, Pentagon officials stated that airports in New York and Washington remain at high levels of security.
However, rights groups and representatives of the Muslim community say the security measures have led to frequent discrimination and harassment.
Moral of this story…see above.
