    Michigan Business Done Right - Malpractice

    Manufacturers can carry a great deal of liability, particularly depending on the nature of what it is that they produce. Liability being of course the causation of actions against a company or entity that produces a product that is defective and fails, causing damage or injury.  It is the ultimate responsibility that drives quality control, and best management practices in business.

    Responsibility is something that makers of any product sold here or worldwide will understand. It can be their windfall.. or their end.

    Imagine if the management of General Motors was to put only one lug nut on each tire of each car they made.  Certainly such a process could save a few dollars on each car.  Further, what if the seat belts were held in place with a plastic clip instead of a metal one?  Add to this a windshield of regular pane glass, and the first pothole met at 60MHP, results in the driver racing through the air looking like a thanksgiving turkey fresh from the processor before the stretch wrap.

    A vivid picture drawn to capture the imagination.  Do we have your attention yet?

    However, General Motors, or Chrysler, Ford Etc.., couldn't possibly build such a low quality car.  Aside from the obvious desire of the buyer to have something that could withstand more than the slightest road hazard, there is the consideration of the pitchfork holding, torch bearing villagers that would surround the manufacturer's facilities looking for the monsters who would do such a thing.  They might even send ~shiver~ a lawyer instead...

    Bottom line, is that the automakers fight enough battles of liability for the product they build.  While some cases are easily dismissed, others are legitimate claims, and add to the cost of doing business.  The responsibility of providing a product that will not damage the user is paramount..  In other words, its generally agreed that killing the customer isn't good for business..

    Every day there are producers of product held liable for the failure of their goods at the most inopportune times.  The news cycle can hardly let a day go by without the mention of a recall by a manufacturer which has discovered a flaw in a product which opens the door to litigation based on loss.

    But somehow, there is a producer of a particular product that damages daily, yet somehow perpetually escapes the liability of its actions.

    The United States Congress crafts many products it feels are life enhancing and promoting.  Most of what it makes however, would be subject to recall if marketed under a private label.  Michigan's legislators and administration have as well produced goods unfit for continued consumption. Our ruling bodies in general have created product that causes a cancer which eats away at  the nation's infrastructure including but not limited to the following ways.

    1.Minimum wage - Price fixes one's most negotiable asset, resulting in job losses, loss of freedoms, and hurting the economy.  If you ain't worth $7.25 and hour... "you ain't worth squat" according to lawmakers.
    2.General Welfare - Creates a dependency, and over time causes the loss of basic skills we need to survive independent of assistance.  Quite damaging and sometimes permanent.
    3.Energy Policy - Much like the design of the Tin-Foil Hats those who vote for it wear, restrictive energy consumption policies reflect good results away from the economy.  Restrictive production policies and resource development invite danger from abroad as we expose ourselves by limiting the resources we can draw from.
    4.Immigration - Poor immigration policy keeps our doors open to the most dangerous of the world, while at the same time convolving the difference between the desirables, and those who are not so much wanted.  Bad policy and enforcement measures by our government. A poor design indeed.
    5.Budgets -  we keep pumping the shekels in, and it keeps pumping out greater debt for us and our children...  What the hell is wrong with this thing?  It causes future poverty and cripples our competitiveness with the world.  IT IS HURTING THIS COUNTRY.
    6.Military -  It seems the most recent production line of soldier building has already revealed a most dangerous flaw in policy.  If the automakers had to build a car comparable to the political correctness that produced the "Hasan model," it would have to include razor wire seat belts.  With advisories of "just don't stop too fast."


    Many know that Senator John Edwards made his fortune in his liability torts against doctors. One of the most successful personal-injury lawyers in North Carolina history, Edwards carried dozens of lawsuits against doctors and hospitals across the state that he represented in the Senate. He won more than 50 cases with verdicts or settlements of over $1 million.  31 of those were medical-malpractice suits.

    Malpractice..  I guess that would be what you call a several $BILLION hit on Michigan's manufacturing sector over the last 20 years..  Given that our leaders refused to validate the bogus science that now turns out to be based on falsified data?  Yes THAT process, which put Michigan families at risk, took money out of the pockets of mortgage paying Americans, and has quickened the bubble collapse caused by an equally failed, and out of warranty government product, the Community Reinvestment Act.

    I would argue we should consider Edward's lead and seek a malpractice action against our leadership.  Like the doctors Edwards sued, (out of business) we would find that certainly some of the lawmakers are trying to serve humanity, but the product they provide is so completely and utterly flawed, it is more of a danger, and has done irreparable harm to the citizens.

    And yet, driving the taxpayer out of state seems just fine.

    Funny how different business and government are.
