It's probably not a legitimate handicap, the body has ways of dealing with things like this - I've seen those people on the tee-vee get up and walk if the Jesus wants them to.

Looking at you. Obama.

The Americans With Disabilities Act was passed in 1990.

keithgabryelski: There are two methods to enforce the law:

1) allow anyone to sue when they see a violation
2) provide an army of inspectors to check every business location in america.

#2 creates an incredibly large bureaucracy which couldn't possible service all of america reasonably

#1 provides for individuals to look like douche-bags by pointing out the incorrectly built and managed business locations


2. Would work but what a nightmare. We would need departments at the county and state levels probably. Maybe call them building departments. They would have to be staffed with all kinds of people, maybe call them building inspectors....

New York is filled with tiny little corner shops with cramped aisles that even ambulatory fat asses can't fit down. I take it the price of real estate is so high they have to cram a store into one quarter the size of a normal store.

The solution is simple. Get rid of them all, let Wal-Mart build a store in Staten Island somewhere and then everyone in any of the five boroughs who needs to grab a few things should just drive 10-20 miles to their "local" Wal-Mart, like everyone in real America has to do.

Spanky McStupid: "I, along with anybody else with a disability, has the right to go wherever they choose to go and not have to be dissuaded or inconvenienced or even apologetic."

It's obvious she is not an english major.


So cripples should not be inconvenienced, but everyone else should be to compensate for their issues...lovely reasoning there.

SO instead of me having to fiddle with contact lenses or glasses everyday, all signs and such should be printed in a proper font/distortion to offset my vision problem, everyone else be damned if they cant read it.

I'm doing my best to be sympathetic to the small shop owners in NYC, but have you ever gone into those places? Ignore that whole non-ADA compliance issue. Just go to Queens and walk into any small shop. They're cramped, noisy, unsanitary, and run by extremely unpleasant people. I'm generalizing, obviously- you can find the occasional decent place to shop. But in general, I have yet to find a group of people less annoying than NYC small shop owners. Wipe 'em all out and put in entire blocks of ADA-compliant Starbucks. It couldn't be any worse, and at least that burnt crap they call coffee smells good while it's being ruined.

The act did not actually go into effect until 1991. But...

1991 is the year Obama was marching in protest to support Professor Bell, the guy who insisted there should be more women on the faculty. Statistically, HALF of those who fall under ADA are women. The plaintiff in this case is a woman. See? It's all coming together clear as day.

Or C) Admit not every square inch of America can be rebuilt to be handicapped accessible, despite PC optimism. Sidewalks, public buildings? Sure. But small business and private building that were built decades or even a century before the ADA existed, not so much.


Or D) Stop being handicapped.
