A Wee Quibble

1a kissVW got schooled.  Yes, it cost them dearly and people may go to jail.

But nobody died because those diesel cars weren’t quite so ecologically correct as they said they were — no EMTs had to pull bloodied bodies out of VWs on the freeway.

The same cannot be said for the millions of cars with Takata airbags.  Eleven people, at least, have died.  And yet, Takata also concealed data.  They lied and people DIED, as the GOP are so happy to scream about every time a Democrat slips on a quote or something.  So why is Takata getting off so cheaply?

Specially since this isn’t EVEN fixed yet.  Millions and millions of cars are still on American roads waiting to be little corporate produced IEDs for their drivers.  But yes, by all that is consumerishly holy, get those damned Germans for fudging on the EPA.  And hey, don’t forget those damned Americans waving flags over their Jeeps.

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
