Well, I'm completely stunned at how eager everyone is to roll over
for the insurance companies. In my state, if it cost $10,000 to fix a
$2,000 market valued car, the responsible party's insurance
company would be coughing up $10,000. It amazes me what
a bunch of pathetic sheep the insurance industry has made you
all into.
