Were it not for double standards, the gummint would have no standards at all.
As you probably have heard by now, President and CEO of Toyota Corp., Akio Toyoda was dragged before Congress this week to explain why his company did not do more to address critical safety issues with their vehicles that resulted in several deaths.
Vehicle safety is surely an important issue and we expect companies, when they become aware of these issues, to deal with them promptly and effectively. Lives depend on it.
It was in this context that Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) addressed Mr Toyoda saying…
“I am not satisfied with your testimony,” she said. “I do not feel it reflects sufficient remorse for those who have died, and I do not think you have accurately reflected the large number of complaints that have been filed for more than a decade.”
“Where is the remorse?”
Where is the remorse? It is a very good question. What may have been missed during the overwhelming media coverage of Toyota’s failing is the much greater health threat posed by the abortion industry.
Just this week…

Patrick – excellent post.
While listening a little to the testimony yesterday, the following snarky thought popped into my head: "If they just blamed Bush, all would be forgiven."
