More Government Over Reach

Here is another example of government power gone too far, and misuse.

Shocking that private companies can employ the police to support their policies.

Here is an example where private company rights should be limited, or government employees should be compelled to objectivity, which means not little funded perks.

Very bad behavior, I would've associated with Nazi Germany, not the US. Ruby Ridge

    Having had past experience being treated as a criminal by the insurance company I hired to protect my goods (State Farm) I don't find this story shocking at all. The only two claims that I filed in 25 years -one for an auto accident and one for a home burglary- each took more than a year to settle even though I had provided extensive written independent valuation documentation requested by the companies. (Might this have been a result of my using a lawyer to force valid payment of a denied claim when I was a student in college 20 years earlier?)

    In fact, I am amazed that people continue to give their hard earned money to giant companies that have produced NOTHING in the history of the industry. Without cozy relationships with government agencies making many types of insurance mandatory under law the insurance "industry" would be deservedly destroyed.

    Insurance for most people today is a mandatory purchase serving only to avoid "imperial entanglements" arranged by the insurance "industry" to "insure" profits for themselves and enforced by the government "public servants" that do the bidding of the looting insurance "industry."

      Premiums are income; claims are expenses. Profit= income minus expenses.
      I only use insurance products when they are mandated, like for mortgages and car registration. I dont expect fair treatment, just that it keeps the government and the banls off my back.

    A couple of thoughts: first I am thankful I'm insured by USAA, which is available to military, active and retired. They have always been very responsive and helpful.

    Second, there is a reason the law is leaning toward punishing the victims and being lenient to criminals. Lawyers don't make money off of the law abiding, whereas repeat criminal offenders provide lots of opportunities to make money. Makes me wonder sometimes if the quote from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice shouldn't be followed ("The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers".).

    I have a theory. We are heading towards throwing the victims of crimes in jail as a method of fighting crime. I first heard either Rush Limbaugh or Michael Savage joke about this over a decade ago and the thought, obviously, stuck in my craw. Now, in California we have neutered the police in their attempts to use necessary force (something I'm not a fan of, mind you - a person in a government costume using force against a citizen). In England when fathers try to rescue their daughters from groomers the fathers go to jail. Now this. Before reading this I was joking with a colleague about this concept of throwing crime victims in jail. My pickup was broken into a week ago. I didn't even call the cops. Why bother? I just threw in my golf clubs and drove to the club with my papers scattered all over the floor...

      Your friend's case is 'Typical Texas Justice' in my estimation. A little friend of mine, got 99 years for an accident termed 'Vehicular Homicide'. The blood tests were lost, Walmart lost the accident photos, and the investigating officer had been with the police there 27 years and only had a Basic Certification! It's been reduced to 66 years now! He is 60! The judge should have refused himself for a 'Conflict of Interest' big time!

      I have to admit, I'm Gulching California. The more stupid things they do, and ruin the place, the better chance the rest of the country has to see the error and go the other way. I'd rather not have to Gulch entirely, since I don't have the Engine of the World.
