    Srsly?? No...Really?? This is dumb. This is a non-issue.

    I know that if I needed brain surgery for some reason, I DO NOT want someone with a southern drawl as my surgeon. I also don't want someone that only speaks Japanese that I need my 12 year old to translate for, as "my doctor" of any type. I guess the world encompasses all kinds...

    This is dumb. Next plz.

    I'd vote this for worst lawsuit of the year, but Orly the Birther seems to have that one in the bag.

    Discrimination? Nah. They'd have better luck attempting to sue under the ADA, claiming that a foreign tongue creates a disbability in America.

    The optometrist actually had somewhat of a point in turning the lady away. Here's the AMA's stance on the issue:

    NB: Optometrists are not physicians and thus this AMA opinion doesn't directly affect them but the analogy is clear.

    I bet the optometrist routinely complains that illegals don't contribute to the local economy.

    They come here and never purchase goods or services and they take all our jobs away...

    the stolen jobs are largely labor, primarily by latinos.
    the far fewer number of available computing jobs are taken by asians/indians, who by their trade more often need corrected vision.

    i think that's what his beef is, capitalist bastard that he is
