    I can't think of a possible scenario in court in which a restaurant owner would incur losses for allowing a service dog into his restaurant.

    I can understand the owner being initially skeptical. Like you say, many people try to bend the rules, and let's be honest... not every disability is verifiable just by looking at a person.

    However, having said that, once the proper papers were introduced, he should have let it go.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Nothing ever is. Humans aren't trained half as well as service dogs are and yet we trust ourselves not to screw up the world. I'd say service dogs have a better track record.

    Even if those tax cuts are available to the majority of entrepreneurs, they still can't deny a service which my taxes helps ensure they stay in business to give.

    CORRECTION: I trust educated humans not to screw up the world. As for the remaining 95% of Americans (notably the moronic right wingers in the South), we need to start their potty training soon.

    Re: Restaurant refuses Iraq War Veteran and service dog

    Almost everywhere I go, I see the ubiquitous sign "We Reserve The Right To Refuse Service To Anyone". So, is that real? Or is that not the case? Please try to answer the question without inserting your political perspective - I'm trying to understand the purpose of those signs.

    Also, has there been any follow up on the original article? I can't find anything. I've felt there was more to the story, but I'd like some hard data.

    I used to travel with my Cat and I was often able to charm my way into restaurants even though they easily could have refused me. Now, of course, Cats are 100,000 times better than dogs so maybe my experiences weren't valid....

I have no new statement aside from a reitteration of my past points which even I have become tired of saying. It is pretty much dead, there is no more audience, and if you wish to claim a longevity victory I am cool with saying you can argue the same thing much longer than I have here. Have a nice day, I have new stupid to complain about. But I do look forward to future endeavors between us as that was a lot of fun.
    OK. I also stand by my points and positions. Until next time...
