This country is going insane
Anyone who lifts a finger to get something done will be attacked and vilifie by the welfarists
Blitz USA Shrugged.
Now ain’t that just ducky! Now, people will have to carry gasoline around in plastic water bottles, with the resulting fire and poisoning hazards as well as an increase in air pollution.
Maker of about 75% of US gasoline cans has just stopped production. Has huge impact on the northeast.
Blitz USA bump.
It takes real cojones and guts to shut down a company. Good for them. Starve the beast.
The chances of meaningful tort reform with Obama in the White Hut? Less than the chance of winning a frivolous lawsuit.
Gasoline and booze seems to turn a lot of people into idiots. In this case pouring gas on an open fire? Insane.
We had a steam cleaning machine manufacturer close down years ago because certain people were so dumb they could not read the sign on the tank that said...WARNING! KEROSENE ONLY!
They put gasoline in the tank and burned themselves, sued and the company closed up.
Easy method to cut down frivolous suits by 90%....
The plaintiff should be required to pay defendants legal costs if the defendant wins in court.
I believe UK and other countries follow this rule.
They made the best Gas Containers until the Federal Government mandated those so called no spill things. Now you can’t get the gas to go where you want it to go while trying to get the nozzle to open up. Gas gets spilled all over, and takes 10 minutes to empty one container because they have no vent. On top of that the plastic nozzles crack break and fall apart leaving a container that you can’t possibly poor anything thing out of without half of it going all over.
Oh and the price for such luxury was a tripling in the price of the Gas container.
If you have any old ones then hang onto them. They are worth their weight in Gold.
I'd like to get my hands around their scrawny little necks along with the Tylenol killers who forced everything to be shrink-wrapped and sealed. Oh, and the inventor of those stiff plastic blister-packs that slice your flesh open when you try to remove the product inside.
There was a period a few years ago when you couldn't find a gas can that didn't have an annoying yellow device on the end of the spout. I think it was supposed to reduce pollution from gas vapors but it didn't work right and just made the cans had to use.
All these cans were made by the same company and it was clear that rather than doing everything right, they may have had a hand in passing the law that required the spouts. I don;t remember for certain if this was Blitz, but if so, maybe it is better that they left the scene.
Never mind the fiscal cliff, the country appears to have gone over a mental cliff with a populace now too stupid to survive.
I believe it’s called an “idiocracy”. With the Prince of Idiots and his Court ensconced on Capitol Hill.
