    EEOC: High school diploma requirement might violate Americans with Disabilities Act - Washington Times

    Are these people absolutely INSANE?

    No, it is the logical consequence of denying the principle of justifiable discrimination. If I have a serious health problem, I look for the best doctor and so I discriminate on the basis of the doctors education level, his specialisation, and other less objective things like how he talks to me. That is discriminating against rude, uneducated doctors of specialties other than what I want. No one seems, at least today, to cast doubt on the right to be discriminatory in that sense.

    But the prevailing view of discrimination is that there should be none on the part of employers, and that is stupid. If they discriminate on the basis of things that are not relevant to the job considered, then that is wrong. But if the factor they discriminate with regard to does have relevance to the job at hand, then they *should* discriminate.

    Taking this logic to further extremes, it wont be long till medical schools cant discriminate against poor students because they dont have the same mental capabilities as those who do have the grades needed.

    Again, to require employers tro hire high school drop outs is INSANE and another example of when the government should butt out of peoples business.

    since the wash times and rev moon never get anything right, i'd put money on this being mischaracterized and this being more fauxrage from the right.

    i'd assume that the letter, which is for discussion purposes only and not binding, might have said that such a requirement *might* be considered discriminatory under certain circumstances. not having seen the letter and reading only the moonie's assertions, it's impossible to tell what was actually said.

    loons.

    My first reaction was laughter..............

    Oh brother.....


    About 6 years ago I hired a young carpenter, wore glasses. We were sheeting a deck, walking across open Joist. The guy miss stepped and experienced the nut crusher. I let him shake it off and about 20 minutes latter, the nut crusher again. I asked him if he could see alright, when he responded he was legally blind.

    Wow, you really do seem to have a deep-seated bigotry against the Reve Moon's denomination of faith.

    How long have you been such a hater?

    Reverend Moon is one of the most heinous scumbags the world has ever known. Bigotry? No, it is not possible to despise that man and his cult enough.

    Tom Lehrer joked in one of his albums that the Army reached the pinnacle in not only not discriminating based on race creed and color but also ability.
    Yesterday's joke is today's Leftism.
