What kind of society is this guy looking for? He’s a complete socialist. He loves government. Yet he wants perfection. He thinks an individual is entitled to $150,000 because of an simple accident. Could he work on an assembly line and never make a mistake?
As far as safety goes, making sandwiches is pretty far down the list with regards to expecting perfection. I have a higher quality expectation of brake shoe, detonation cap, traffic light assembly line works.
Can we even blame the person who made the sandwich? I guarantee they were not pitting olives for his sandwich. They were reaching into a container filled with olives that were no doubt from a can. If he’s gonna sue someone, it should be the olive provider. But wait, is it really their fault? They can’t hand search ever can for pits. It’s the maker of the olive pitting machine that should be sued.
I just don’t see how his socialist views can possibly mesh with his opinion that something as small as an olive pit making its way into a sandwich should result in $150,000 payment.
Mr. Kucinich, life is about living and living is dangerous. You can’t sue for every hazard. This would isn’t perfect. Nothing in it is perfect. Every machine contains defects. Even if something was perfect, everyone and everything is in a state of atrophy is deterioration.
After this embarrasing display of judicial frivolousness would anyone want to serve him in a restaurant? Would anyone want to be his doctor? Would anyone want to fix his car? Would anyone want him on their property?
Perhaps Mr. Kucinich would prefer to live in a bubble where is environment can be closely monitored and screened for hazards.
Wake-up Ohio and vote out this bozo.
Cheeky? Kucinich Sues for ‘Oral Injuries’ From Errant Olive Pit
Published January 26, 2011 AP
Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio
It’s the pits to break a tooth while eating. Just ask Rep. Dennis Kucinich.
The Ohio Democratic representative is suing House cafeteria service providers for $150,000 for allegedly selling him a sandwich wrap with a stray olive pit in it.
Kucinich, who ran for president in 2008, said in a Jan. 3 lawsuit filed in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia that the pit caused “serious and permanent” damage to his mouth and wellbeing.
He said he is entitled to recover damages, “including but not limited to past and future dental and medical expenses, compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment and other damage.”
