Really? Thats one bias comment, Do you really need to know a language to know someone is screaming in panic because they are going to die and need help, I don't know if he spoke English or not, in this situation is totally irrelevant, is self explanatory, so if you are vacation in Japan and you don't speak Japanese we should let you die if you can't verbalized you need help,

To this day I don't know what kind of drugs this fire chief was on, but in the end I wasn't arrested. Just goes to show though how fuk'd up some people's thinking can be.

I'd do it again though, fire chief be damned.
I'm with you.

Well, at least it has helped to "decrease the surplus population."

I'm in the subways pretty often and the one thing I never do while waiting for my ride is stand where anyone can get behind me. Always I put my back against a wall, support column or bill board. I watch people stand near the edge of the platforms with people behind them constantly. Even if not intentional all it takes is for someone behind them to trip or talk into them while not watching what they're doing and they're over the edge. Hell, a would be nut job could take out 5 or 10 people pretty easily.

Same with the train platforms at the stations outside the city. People do the same thing there with the Amtrak or express trains blowing past the platforms easily doing 60 or 70mph.

Just think, if the guy on the tracks had a towel wrapped around his head we'd all be laughing. Can I get an "Amen"?

I've seen it before, it's only going to get worse as the moral standards we used to live by continue to be eroded by the radical progressives.

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

Based on his earlier comment, I would be OK with that.

The incident cited in your post is disgusting and there is no valid excuse for the actions (or lack of) by any of the people involved.

As to your specific question. I have been convinced for a very long time now that dollars trump everything in most people's minds. I am reminded of a recent thread on this forum about helmet laws. Rather than the focus being on freedom of choice, the focus was all about who should have to pay medical bills for a rider injured while not wearing a helmet. There is plenty more to say about that as another subject, but suffice it to say that it also repersents this "new" trend that only dollars matter.

It is very sad indeed.

I assume you are addressing me. Are you baiting me? Is that what you are trying to do? Since I have not commented at all in this topic, I am perplexed as to why you are trying to broaden the topic to the area of sexuality?

A little thread drift but, why don't they put guard rails along the platform so people can't fall onto the tracks quite so easily?
