    Now you're in trouble:

    2. Never use the term “handicapped parking.” Use “accessible parking” instead.
    Handicapped parking is still in use (e.g., when referring to parking placards), though the word “handicapped” is offensive and has been virtually eliminated in most other contexts.
    Remove it from your organization’s vocabulary completely by using the term “accessible parking.” (It’s also more accurate, as accessible describes the parking and handicapped does not.)

    What I found funny was the exchange of posts and, unlike much of your hero's image uploads, had nothing to do with your physical appearance or mental capacity.

    Maybe when you grow up it will become clear to you if you choose to be offended or insulted at something you chosen to be so. It's your choice, you and you alone get to deal with it. There might be many things you could do but insisting that someone else alter their behavior in order to accommodate your prejudices isn't one of them.

    Perhaps in the diseased liberal mind choosing to be offended ranks right up there with being shot, stabbed, raped, or having someone crush your instep. Taking offense is your choice, the other physical violences not so much.

    "Shouldn't have to choose"? Sadly, in this particular external reality, you always have a choice** and you always have to choose.

    **Except when you don't, but I don't have the time or desire to explain the differences to you.

    I'm plenty grown up and that old wives tale you neocons keep repeating to yourselves about when you liberals "grow up' you'll go to the extreme right too, is the same kind of narrow minded, factually vacant wishful thinking that keeps your side of the political pendulum nothing more than a tiny minority of thought in this great and wonderful experiment in democracy we live in.

    Its a pretty sick and sad world you live in when advocating mutual respect for others, empathy for those under attack, adherence to the rules of a forum, holding people accountable for their actions and transgressions are viewed as a "prejudice" or symptoms of a "disease".

    throwing the insults around so freely doesn't gin you one iota of respect from me and simply proves you're not much better than the guy this stupid thread was created for.

    This whole thread bores me and its outlived any usefulness to anyone involved, so I'm done.

    Hadn't actually occurred to me, but that is another brilliant observation!

    Why the political and broad cultural references here.
    Neocon? How did you arrive at that, am I on Salon's website?

    So, the poster who turned it political and made a few overtly political judgements and stereotypical insults gets off scott free in your critique of why things on the thread turned political? I wonder if its because you're politically more aligned with his perspective?

    Like I said last night, this thread is dead weight dragging the whole site down.

    Political? Are you unhinged?

    The point, at least one of them, which seems to elude you, is that each and every human being is responsible for itself, its choices, and its own condition. You are exactly what you have chosen to be. What you are is the sum total of all of the choices you have made in your life. Those choices include whether to be offended or insulted nor not at any given time.

    The other point being that no human being has ever been dealt any harm by words. At least no harm that they didn't chose for themselves.

    You know bob, for someone who claims that being upset with other's comments is a choice, you sure seem to choose to get worked up by other's comments an awful lot.

    I reckon in the wild, wild west or wherever the hell it is you reside the very real and very injurious actions of slander and libel don't exist. Just more blaming the victim, so one never has to be held accountable for one's actions.

    In your world view, victims of slander and libel chose to have someone disparage them to the point of impacting their business or personal interests and possibly their physical safety?

    Wow! That sounds like a pretty scary place to be.

    Hey Doug, good to see you on here again, for a long time I didn't see any posts from you, so welcome back, (or maybe you been here and I just didn't notice)?

    Back on topic, I'll have some Loco Moco, (I wish, I haven't had any since being on the island in 1970)....

    :smile:
