    Thanks, Chan, it sums up why I hate any use of a “hyphenated” American. Of course it’s also irritating how saying “American” is easier than saying “United Statesan” or Citizen of the U.S., but so many Americans ignore the fact the U.S. is only a small portion of “the Americas”. They are the same ones who feel all those other countries should be our economic supporters or servants.

    At least our 2nd Grade Teachers do not disrespect children in Wheelchairs by not allowing them to be in the 2nd Grade Class Group Photo, no, You Canadians treat children with handicaps as outcast, you do not want them to be photographed with non-handicapped children.

    Same one who signed NEPA, The Clean Air Act, and actually did a number of good things, besides “being a crook”.

    " the best thing GHW Bush did, signing the ADA."
    And in 2013, we are suing cities and businesses for not complying.
    I remember this as being “for the disabled vietnam vets” as well as others. We are still against the returning disabled, as well as the citizen.

    You know what they call the 4th of July in London?
    .
    I tried this once when I was young and getting on a bus in NYC’s Port Authority Bus Terminal (the home of all Bus Terminal horror stories combined!)
    .
    An old lady came up to me and demanded to know what i called myself. I figured that this was a flag waver and so I said “I’m 100% American!” (Keeping in mind I’m a long haired hippy type person who considered himself a citizen of the world.)
    .
    Wrong answer!
    .
    She went off on a tear about how I should be all about my heritage and that was what was wrong with America today, and young people and ya di ya di ya… I stopped a Hari Krishna and I bought her a flower. Then when she started digging into him I made my escape.
    .
    Thanks for bringing back that memory, Mr. Lowe. BTW, love your hardware store!

    Opinion: Architectural barriers act in ’68 was actually first, and none had anything specific to do with veterans, ’Nam or otherwise. Counting the elderly, etc, roughly 40% of the population actually has some degree of physical or mental disability.


    The ADA btw doesn’t actually “sue cities”, a complaint is filed with DOJ and they investigate, and suggest or order changes to accommodate the disabled. If the “recipient” doesn’t comply, then they can enforce financial penalties.


    The majority of economic suits folks see are the result of STATE LAWS, like in Florida, where the lawyers have found another “golden calf”. The federal law looks for resolution of “problems” , not financial payoffs. BTW, California was ahead of the feds on seeking accommodation of people with disabilities with architectural changes, and did a quite good job.

    I think you spelt that wrong, They call it “Three Days After Canada Dry”
    .
    You know how they love their Ginger Ale in London. But they prefer to mix their Gin with their Malaria medicine, tonic water.

    @dtroutma

    What I was referencing was disabled people I know got with a law firm which does not much else than ADA compliance cases and on behalf of the disabled, sues states, cities and businesses for being out of compliance.

    “Thanks for some more fiction, dtroutma. You have done it all—on paper that is.”
    He does have an impressive resume. Do You even have a resume?

    1 Opinion, part of being “an American” is caring about our neighbors, that includes the disabled. I also worked on our state disabilities commission with a number of firms like you mention. Another interesting aside as to “cost” of the ADA. In one fairly typical case, we had a business that was told by an architect that it would cost $60,000 to meet the ADA upgrade requirements for his existing building. I showed him how to fully meet the law for around $650!!!


    As to PAJ (Zit’s) constant insults, I not only have a considerable resume, but also a considerable number of awards and “thank you plaques” on my post-retirement “vanity wall” in my home office.


    And back to the ‘toon, I DO appreciate Chan’s sentiment with this one.

    Maybe if you used that term more instead of differentiating so much between “xx-american” you wouldn´t see so many issues (so many, not none at all).

    When I type into Google “On the internet, no one knows you’re a dog”, I get a picture of TROUT.
