I need a beer tap installed in my office so I can think more clearly. I also need a couple of those Octoberfest girls to serve me my beer.
More assaults on business by the administration of “The Won” and his cronies. Big(ger) businesses will be able to absorb some of this, but it will eventually pinch them in the wallet, causing them to shed workers. Small(er) businesses will not, and this will instigate a wave of closures for businesses who can’t afford all the spurious claims and subsequent expenditures for “accomodations”.
This isn’t about making sure that people with real disabilities can get into the building. It’s about making sure ADA lawyers have an opportunity to rake in more profit by convincing clients that they really *need* that Hermann Miller chair or they’ll just die.
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,

She/hes, He/shes, dog/men, cat/women, who can keep up?
But the government says they all have to have a place
to work...and for some....a litter box.
Just another way to fire white Christian males.
This change will assure that no one with a perceived difference/disability will ever be hired again.
Too stupid to do the job...
Does that qualify?
How about too lazy?
I recall reading the opinion some years ago that the disability act would inevitably lead to those afflicted with innumeracy being hired as mathematics professors. I suppose we’re nearing that point.

Yes, Caterpillar would be required to hire a second CNC machine operator to operate the machine for the “disabled” guy who is unable to operate it correctly.
Accomodation. Pay two people to get one job done.
Two M’s in ‘accommodate’ !
When I meet Saint Peter at the Gate, that’s what I plan to say, “Two M’s in accommodate!” ... I figure I’ll go right in.
That means THEY will have to accommodate the likes of ME, by staying the heck out of my sight, hearing, or smelling: I'm deathly allergic to freeloaders, deadbeats, and goldbricks.
They cause me to break out in uncontrollable fits of apoplexy, leading to wildly flailing limbs...which sometimes connect violently with vital parts of their worthless carcasses.
Destroying the last of our economy.
No more German girls for me. I've gone strictly Italian from now on.
A new way to steal our tax money.
Also another way to put us all on the plantation.
Someone needs to forward this to Bush-41. He’s the one who turned Wheelies into a newest Entitlement Class.
Government won’t stop until all of us are dependent on it. These things are merely a means to an end and in the end, it’s control they want.
