    Shouldn't it be covered by insurance then? I'm pretty sure I don't have a deductible on "acts of God."

    Though I'm glad that God has the time to fuck up some lady's random trunk over helping a starving child somewhere.

    Unless, that lady was on her way to kill said starving child...

    It is an act of God if it fell over during a hurricane. Otherwise the city should be held accountable. They were paid to do a job (via taxes) and if they were incompetent then they are responsible for the consequences.

    It's a feeble attempt at wordplay in an effort to mask the truth and make people feel less guilty.

    I think most insurances specifically preclude acts of God, I know mine does. And terrorism.

    Good luck proving the incompetence. That would also open up the city to having people climbing up on lamposts and loosening the bolts to get the city to pay for something they already had damaged.

    no it's not wordplay it's what's convenient to their situation

    You're a smart man Sinn Fein

    I'm so sorry I paid my taxes and paid for your fucking street lights that ruined the fucking car that you, like a pussy, couldn't move before the hurricane.

    The original story didn't say anything about a hurricane... if that was the case then it was an act of God. However if it just fell over with no outside influence, it's not.

    well I apologize for my tax dollars. Why don't you sue me too while you're at it?

    If the city is allowed to be incompetent, your tax dollars will further go to waste. You're right though, if it was incompetence I would much prefer that some people were fired than to have to pay for a settlement (if I was a resident there).

    You're right. A miscarriage should be considered a fetus as well.
