Especially in the case of a young person, the medical goal is to make the natural joints last as long as possible before needing replacement and to try to make it so the person does not need to have multiple replacements of the same joint in a lifetime.

So it's best that you accept that you aren't smarter than doctors and are far more ignorant than you think. Best to not hate on people with medical conditions you are lucky not to have.
Might look into this since I have degenerative arthritis in both my shoulders. After all, I swing my arms when I walk, so that counts for miles on those joints.

I know a guy with a disabled tag on his F350 with an 8 inch lift. He apparently can't walk more than x feet but he is perfectly okay when he's jumping in and out of his truck.

You just described the parking lot of a Wal-Mart.

So you can do one of the following:

1) Buy him the vehicle YOU think he should get in and out of if you are so concerned or

2) Find yo bidness and mind it.

You don't need to be near death to have a handicap parking permit.

Meanwhile a disabled senior citizen has to park a mile away because some jerkoff in his mid 20's thinks he's special enough for preferred parking.

Doesn't depend on what the patient thinks, it's what the doctor thinks.

It does matter what the patient thinks. I highly doubt a doctor is going to stalk a patient and make sure he's using his handicapped parking privilege. Or if the doctor knew the person was driving a jacked up truck, I doubt they'd receive a handicapped parking tag anyway. Then again, they might. There's a lot of dumb **** doctors out there too.

No one has yet to explain how exactly this screws over the disabled. This treaty changes no laws, it changes nothing in this country at all essentially.

What in the hell are you talking about? Doctors diagnose what condition you have and determine if you need that parking pass or not...NOT what kind of car you drive.

Both my parents and my brother were allowed the blue plaques...all three for different reasons.

Jesus, what are you even try to argue here?

The first sentence of your quote was in response to gonzo. And you still haven't answered what country you went to that had such horrible medical facilities for disabled people. I'm willing to bet it's a country that signed this worthless treaty.

EDIT correction: Most of the other countries I have been to have signed the treaty, whether the signing was before or after I was there I don't know.
So you don't have to page back to find it

This was my post you originally quoted. Instead of actually providing substance as to why or how I was wrong you just say I have no idea what I'm talking about. You used to be a somewhat decent poster, what the hell happened?

When I was doing internship hours for my special education degree, I had the chance to spend time in Mexico (about 40 hrs) and experience their educational system in relation to special populations. It was a pretty easy comparison to make because there was no comparison: Our special populations in the U.S. are treated, funded, and legaly protected on a level that you can't even imagine. To say that we are superior in this area would be an understatement. As a teacher of young adults with disabilities, a sybling of a person diagnosed with a lifelong/lifetime disablility and the son of two seniors with disablities I can with all honesty tell you that if the U.S. is not THE best on this issue, we are pretty damn close. In my opinion, not signing this treaty fails to aknowledge the great example this country has set for the rest of the world to follow. I find if funny that we like to thump our chest when it comes to the military (with good cause; its the bigest and badest), but not do the same when it comes to this issue.

I can't say with certainty because I can't find a list of countries that have signed the treaty, but I'm guessing that Mexico was among the 155 countries that have signed it. I honestly don't think other countries will think that we don't care for our disabled just because we didn't sign this treaty. I think even the most uneducated and backwards third world countries know that we take care of our disabled, so I can't imagine us not signing this treaty will change anything in the world what so ever.

Don't make the assumption that I agree with the dick measuring we do around the world under the guise of spreading peace and democracy. I'm sick of sacrificing American lives in dusty **** hole countries, and I'm sick of pissing away trillions on people that will never pay us back.

What point are you trying to make here? If mexico has lacking standards, then it's great they signed.
