ADA needs to be repealed.

Bottom fucking line.

OMAHA, Neb. — A hearing-impaired woman has filed a federal lawsuit against a local McDonald’s, saying workers there refused to let her order food at the drive-thru window.
Karen Tumeh of Lincoln says they insisted she either order at the electronic speaker along the drive-thru lane or come inside to order.
Tumeh wears a hearing aid but still cannot hear while using the drive-thru ordering box at fast-food restaurants, according to the lawsuit.
At least three times since September 2007 workers at a Lincoln McDonald’s refused to let her place her order at the drive-thru window, Tumeh said.
In denying her service, McDonald’s violated the federal Americans With Disabilities Act, she said. Tumeh’s lawsuit seeks to force McDonald’s to make accommodations for hearing-impaired people to order food in restaurant drive-thrus.

Sorry, but this is bullshit. Get out of the fucking car and go inside. People used to deal with their disabilities, you know, back before Papa Bush signed that abortion of a bill known as the ADA.
I know plenty of folks with disabilities more severe than hearing loss who managed to get by without the government forcing businesses to make special accommodations for them.
You don’t realize it, Ms. Tumeh, but you’re one of the reasons this country is in the fucking mess it’s in.

Other McDonald’s restaurants in Lincoln have accommodated Tumeh, Mora James said.
“We have attempted to resolve this on many occasions and have unfortunately been unable to resolve this,” [her attorney, Shirley Ann] Mora James said. “So we were forced into litigation.”

No, you weren’t. Instead of taking your business elsewhere, you decided to throw a tantrum and sue. That is NOT the American way, and I question your patriotism, Ms. Tumeh and Ms. Mora James — as well as your motives, which I imagine are all about redistributing a bit of McDonalds’ wealth into your own pockets.
Fuck a bunch of people like you who capitalize on their disabilities to line their pockets.

    Agree 100%. I had a similar post.

    These assholes should pay court costs if they (hopefully) lose these asinine suits. As you say, get out of the damn car, and don’t hold up the rest of the world. In addition to repealing the ADA, it would be nice to see the Title IX crap go the way of the buffalo.
