    What does disability mean to you and who qualifies?

    I met another "disabled person" this morning that was loading up for a week trip to go horseback riding in Missouri. How disabled could that person really be, horses are alot of trouble and require high amounts of physical labor for care.

    It is becoming sickening seeing these types basically on early retirement while the rest of us work.

    It's like that guy I saw this morning at the Home Depot parked in the handicap zone with one of those blue ADA cards hanging from his rear view mirror who was loading 16, 100 pound bags of concrete into the back of his pick-up truck.

    When you need a chest harness and a helmet to keep from hurting yourself.

    Ah, no. Very much relevant. You, Joe Bob Smith, don't have access to, nor are allowed access to, Jane Jackson's medical records to determine that she is not disabled or is disqualified.

    A person is disabled to a greater or lesser degree when physical or mental attributes outside of their control cause them to be less or uncompetitive in the job market.

    You ought to try watching court TV -- honest to GOD, so many people are on disability these days, it's staggering.

    I voted "It should be completely overhauled...."

    I can't stand to see law firms advertising on TV for clients . . . "Been turned down for disability?? Call Dewie Cheatum and Howe today!!!"

    Agoraphobia -- and they're on People's Court. Incapacitating back injury, and they're moonlighting as movers. Oh, please!!!
