It's time to get serious about eliminating Sharia Law, and all Muslim idiocies, like this one, so contact and pressure Congress to get rid of all Muslims consulting government, military, Obama's administration, universities!!!!
“What I object to,” said Chaffetz, “is the Department of Justice forcing businesses and restaurants.... think about airplanes. Look, even the Miniature Horse Association has come out and said, look, you can’t potty train, for instance, a horse to the same degree you can a canine. And so it just seems like the federal government, the Department of Justice, is going overboard in issuing a rule. Sure enough, they issued a rule, March 14th, and within a week, restaurants being sued in California for not allowing horses into their restaurant. It just seems absurd, just over the top.
This reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of what the ADA regulations require. Those regulations specifically define "service animals" to include dogs only. As the regulations specifically say, "[o]ther species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not service animals for the purposes of this definition." 28 C.F.R. 36.104. A business is required to accommodate service animals -- dogs -- except where "[t]he animal is out of control and the animal's handler does not take effective action to control it" or "[t]he animal is not housebroken." 28 C.F.R. 36.302(c). So, even if we're dealing with a service dog, if it's not housebroken, a business does not have to let it in.
Not that it will do you any good, but you can contact the DOJ here:
AMEN!!! The more, the merrier!
I don't know if miniature horses can be "house broke" or not. I've heard that some CAN be. Some of the other claims made against using these tiny horses as service animals our bogus. First of all, not all horses are "spooly". I've been around a few that were bomb proof, nothing startled them. They might flicnh a bit but that's about it. Sure I've seen some that were spooked by their own farts. Horses have different personalities, just like humans.
Secondly, I 'm sure that many of the mini horses that are tried out as "seeing eye" guide animals don't make it through training. Many dogs don't either. It takes a very special disposition of the animal to make a good service animal. Thirdly, these small animals can be easily bathed and sprayed with fly repellents. I've done this with big horses lots of times.
So jerry, You are saying that you would like to be sitting in a nice restaraunt having a nice dinner when a horse at the next table lets out a large fart? How about sitting in a movie theater when the cute little pony fills his diaper with ...... well you know what. Unless it is a western, I don't think that most people would enjoy adding their olfactory senses to what they came to have stimulated. Just a little common sense would tell most sane people that this is a very bad idea.
Insanity and inanity. It seems to me that the costs of purchase and upkeep for a miniature horse would exceed the cost of one of those scooters.
I used to own a miniature horse - she was a pet. She was wonderful as a cart horse since originally they were bred to be used in coal mines. No way can you house train them and I think it is highly illogical to use them as guide animals. Dogs can sense danger and act to protect their owner but the little horses as cute as they are, are not able to do the same job. They also need more excercise and outdoor living than a dog and it would be very cruel to use them as a service animal. If muslims need a guide dog and they hate dogs, let their relatives, kids or wives (since they usually have more than one) guide them around. So, you think this is not politically correct? Too bad! At 71 I refuse to be politically correct!
WAIT JUST A MINUTE......guide horses are not even the issue here. What IS the issue is that you muslims cannot come to our country with your 'sharia' crap expecting to overrule our laws or changing our culture. In this country dogs are domestic pets, get over it. And by the way....we like pork, so stop your islamic infiltration of banning pork menus in our prison & school systems, the same goes for your insistance to pray 5x a day at the work place, or filing lawsuits against business owners for banning unsafe berka lengths. Get out of this country!
We will stop you & your ilk...starting at the top.
I 2nd that Linda!!!!!!! Amen & Amen!
Amen! Can anyone come up with a "pig blood in a can" vending machine?
That should be an easy one!
So, as I progress through the golden years and my infimirties disable me to the point of needing a "service pig", I'm sure those idiots at the DOJ will make sure I can get a cup of coffee at the local middle eastern cafe.
No, no... It only works ONE WAY! Or as "THE HOLY CORRAN" sez, our way or the highway. We need a big book burning. And Obama's favorite book should be the one consumed. (ever see the video where he quotes that evil thing 4 different times?)
