    The ADA isn't a state law.

    But one of these ADA attorneys is actually on the same floor as me. I've always wanted to ask some of the folks who work for the shyster how they feel about it. Maybe I'll just ask if they're involved in this suit as a less confrontational way of approaching it...

    It's a great example of why mainstream America hates liberals and why mainstream America hates lawyers. Needless to say, liberals and lawyers love each other very much.

    No, you are what is called a "useful idiot".

    Please be aware that I am just using that political term as a figure of speech and not personally calling you an idiot. If you are not familiar with the term it is, as I said, just a figure of speech. To go by the definition on Wikipedia, a useful idiot is "a naive person manipulated to produce propaganda for a malign cause."

    I takes a really special mind to turn this into an indictment of liberals.

    Mainstream America hates liberals? I thought mainstream America was made of kind, hard-working, good-natured Christians...

    As for liberals and lawyers, sure -- just like conservatives and lawyers love each other very much, just different lawyers.

    There are lawyers who make a cottage industry out of suing under ADA and it costs thousands to defend. One complaint when it was enacted under George H.W. Bush was that it was too vague and would lead to numerous lawsuits was poopooed as too pessimistic but it has come to fruition and negatively affects buainesses and makes them less likely to want to set up in California.
    ADAlawsuits.com-- Help for Defendants in Unreasonable ADA Lawsuits

    >>>California has seen tens of thousands of ADA/accessibiliy lawsuits in just the past few years; in just one Federal case category, more than 41% of the ADA/accessibility lawsuits in the United States were filed in California.
    California has a much higher standard for accessibility than most other states and countries; it has been estimated that 98% of all businesses here have at least one condition which could expose them to a costly lawsuit. >>>>

    It's kind of interesting that so many California threads are started by someone who claims to have no concern about what happens in California.

    You mean that guy who ran for office 5 times as a Democrat and once actually got 30% of the vote in the Democratic primary? Well, next time you see him, you can tell him I said to go f-himself.

    Come on now, MrsPFnVA... I enjoy our little tete-a-tetes quite a bit, but I am very disappointed in you posting a reply which really is just a reworded version of "I know you are but what am I?" :D

    Now you're quoting the wrong poster. I never said this had anything to do with liberalism at all. However, I did respond to Jack by saying that CA certainly is liberal.

    But never, ever stated this issue is a liberal issue.

    But....California sure is liberal.
