RUSH: Snerdley’s going crazy here, folks. He can’t figure out how anybody could be sued when they don’t have an aircraft. “How can you sue Boeing? You don’t have an aircraft; you don’t know why it crashed. How can you sue Malaysian Airlines? You don’t have an aircraft. You don’t have any bodies! How can you sue anybody?” What you need to do is go look at CNN earlier today.
They went out and they got Bill Nye “the Science Guy” to talk about the legal issues. That’s how hard up they’re getting for guests. Bill Nye, “the Science Guy,” who’s not even a science guy, if you know the truth. I’m not trying to destroy you kids’ opinion, but he’s not. See, it works this way. Jeffrey Toobin gave it up.
You go after Boeing. A lawsuit is that you make some claims, and then you get a jury. That’s all. Sue Boeing for whatever. Blame them for the crash. All you gotta do is get a jury that hates American corporations and loves to take care of “the little guy,” and then go make the case. If you have no evidence, that’s speculation, the best probable cause. It’s a civil lawsuit.
And then if the judge thinks it’s excessive or not enough, he can make adjustments or what have you. But just because there’s no airplane doesn’t mean they can’t sue everybody. It’s like a town sweep. You just throw everybody in and sue everybody and hope you get a jury that goes along with one of your targets.
You do it here. It’s what Toobin said: We got a litigious friendly and a plaintiff friendly judicial system here. (sigh) Okay. Sheila Jackson Lee. This was on the floor of the House. I wish this had been on CNN. This was on the floor of the House, Sheila Jackson Lee (Democrat-Texas) speaking about the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370…
LEE: I call upon the aviation industry to stop hiding behind costs and how much it costs and start ensuring that our pilots and our customers, our flying public, are safe. Why do we have the capacity, uh, to dismantle the transponders? Why wasn’t the emergency call already in place that it automatically signals when a[n] aircraft goes off its, uh, discerned or destinated — uh, destiny and destination –
RUSH: Jeez. (laughing)
LEE: — uh, as relates to, uh, its flight pattern.
LEE: Why does it have to be done manually?
RUSH: Oh, my God, folks, are we in so much trouble. This is a congressional leader. This whole thing is a satire, is a parody. (laughing) “I call upon the ‘avenation’ industry, to stop hiding behind cost and how much things cost and start ensuring that our beloved pilots and our precious customers, our precious flying public are safe! Why can somebody turn off the transponder?
“Why wasn’t the emergency call already in place when the plane goes off its discerned or ‘destinated’ destiny, as relates to its flight pattern?” (laughing) It’s “destinated destiny,” which in this case happened … (laughing) … happened to be… (laughing) She’s a leader of the Democrat Party, folks, in the House! (sigh)
