Postby WidowMaker » Apr 11th, 2006 at 2:47 pm

Heard this news story on the way into work.

A California woman sued Southwest airlines for $27.5 MILLION after she said she was racially profiled. Apparently a flight attendant made a remark that the woman reminded her of a terrorist. An El Paso jury agreed and awarded the woman $27.5 MILLION.

Frivolous lawsuits ftw! Now I just need someone to racially profile me...

Listening to Fox News all day, one would think all issues were partisan issues.

Is this right?

Well see, there's the problem. It must just be liberal propaganda to make you think the conservative majority government is completely fucked up! :P
