Texas workers screwed again

The Texas Supreme Court has once again ruled that workers in Texas can be summarily sodomized, without benefit of lubricant. They can be arbitrarily denied benefits after being injured on the job, and have no remedy in the courts. Here's one you can cheer, Ant. Insurers have successfully fucked the public once again.
Ant refers to my views on the power of insurance companies as a "conspiracy theory." But then, he's an idiot.
So now, in addition to being treated like so much livestock by Texas employers, get hurt on the job and run into an insurance company employee who is having a bad day, and you're hosed. But be sure to keep voting Republican. And just wait. We may soon get to see this played out at the national level. Working poor, start looking for a home.
On another note
I repeatedly asked Ant to explain how Bain investors were "risking" anything when that private equity firm got involved with another company. All I ever got in response was, "Squid, you just don't know it works." I always took that to mean that Ant didn't know either.
Well, it appears that there was never any real risk for Bain investors. They were practically guaranteed a return. All the "risk" was carried by the employees of the companies unfortunate enough to get tangled uo with Bain.
So, I'll ask again but probably still won't get an answer. Where was Bain's risk?
