Father poisons children, sues Campbell's Soup

When people are willing to harm their own children in order to sue a company and collect damages, product liability suits are more than just a nuisance. Stories about people putting disgusting stuff in their food in order to sue the food-maker are so common, we don’t even mention most of them anymore, but here's a new twist on that tired old story.

A Georgia man is accused of poisoning his two young children in order to sue the Campbell soup company and win a big settlement. No longer are product liability suits just a common and growing nuisance for business, the yearning for a big lawsuit payoff has become such a strong temptation that wicked people will now even sacrifice their own children for the reward.

You're thinking this is not really new, but you're wrong. Sure, we've always had parents who would abuse their children--either out of neglect, frustration, anger, etc. We have also long seen parents who would sell their children, or their children's services, for profit. But this is new, and it is a disturbing offspring of our increasingly litigious society.

One does not have to have ever opened a Bible to understand that, indeed, the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. It is truer that the love of OTHER PEOPLE'S money is the root of most of that evil. People who enjoy, even treasure, the money they honestly earn generally commit no more evil deeds than those with little desire for money, but for those who covet money that doesn't belong to them, and are too lazy or anti-social to earn it honestly, it seems there is no limit to their potential for evil.

The growing popularity and success of product liability suits feeds the insatiable appetite and strengthens the addiction to OPM--other people's money. Product liability suits are not just a growing menace. They are the propagators of yet another branch of evil.

    I took zyprexa which was ineffective for my condition and gave me diabetes.

    Zyprexa, which is used for the treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, accounted for 32% of Eli Lilly's $14.6 billion revenue last year.

    Zyprexa is the product name for Olanzapine,it is Lilly's top selling drug.It was approved by the FDA in 1996 ,an 'atypical' antipsychotic a newer class of drugs without the motor side effects of the older Thorazine.Zyprexa has been linked to causing diabetes and pancreatitis.

    Did you know that Lilly made nearly $3 billion last year on diabetic meds, Actos,Humulin and Byetta?

    Yes! They sell a drug that can cause diabetes and then turn a profit on the drugs that treat the condition that they may have caused in the first place!

    I was prescribed Zyprexa from 1996 until 2000.
    In early 2000 i was shocked to have an A1C test result of 13.9 (normal is 4-6) I have no history of diabetes in my family.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
