Really??? I mean how full is the handicap parking areas at Walmart and Target at any given time!? EMPTY. Why does the city of Owensboro generously give out handicap tags to people who have no business having them in the first place!? It really is out of hand. 65% of people who have these tags have no business with them. Being fat should not count as a handicap. As a matter of fact, the city should make "red zone" parking for people who are overweight. These spaces should be reserved for people who are reportedly overweight by their health care physicians. A red zone tag should be mandated to that individual that makes it required to park in the far back of the store so that exercise is encouraged. This could make health care cost come down, including insurance. The city and states give privileges to people who don't need them. The rest of us have to take on the burden of inconvenience wether it's paying more in taxes (ie food stamp handouts, free healthcare to unwilling participants of financial responsibility) or having to needlessly walk a mile past a giant handicap parking area that is only 15% full at any given time, while everyone else drives around in circles for 20 minutes waiting for someone to pull out so we can get a place to park. Now of course some of you idiots will be offended by my remarks because you think I'm being "mean" or " insensitive" while you munch on your chicken sandwich In front of your computer. Me? I could care less what you ultra feminized morons think. Especially living in a society where being mindful of other people's feelings takes precedence over telling the truth.

Handicap tags are given by the state. The city has nothing to do with them. Also, businesses have to have a certain number depending on several factors.

It really doesn't matter who's issuing, be it state, local or federal. The fat needs to be trimmed. It should start at the local level. The factors set to determine the number of spaces needs a complete overhaul.

I thought I was the only one fed up with the handicap parking. I agree it really is out of hand. Over half the spaces are never used and the people that get out of their cars...a lot of them walk better then I do

So you guys are annoyed that you are perfectly healthy and don't want to walk the extra 10-20 feet from your parking spot? Sounds like a little handicapped envy If you ask me.:))

Being fat is not considered a handicap. Handicapped people get fat because their handicap prevents them from getting enough exercise. They became handicapped long before they became fat. A lot of them are in pain. They don't care about their appearance because their pain makes them constantly depressed. A lot of them secretly hope being fat will give them a heart attack so they can die and get it over with.
This reminds me of Nazis. The Nazis didn't think of themselves as criminals. They thought of themselves as good people who wanted to make the world a better place. They saw Jews the same way you see fat handicapped people. They saw them as a problem, just like you do. They weren't trying to do evil, but just to make the world a better place. That's the same thing you want.
I don't believe handicap parking should take up 35 percent of a parking lot. Whenever i go to a retailer, the handicap parking always sits empty for the most part. Sorry, but I don't agree with your statement.

Being on meds make you fat? Some maybe but, but for most it's is an excuse and the real issue is they eat with no discipline and sit on their ass instead of exercising.

I am really disgusted with these comments. A DR desides who does and does not get a handicap sticker. A person who has a heart attack cannot walk far but looks healthy. You must visit these parking lots in the middle of the night as all handicap spaces are full during times 90% of the people shop.

Not all handicapped people are fat and not all fat people are handicap. And yes some medications do put a lot of pounds on people.

I could care less if the whole parking lot was handicap spots as long as I knew they were for the elderly and honest disabled. Not fatties. And I think they should have expecting mothers parking. 8 months pregnant you deserve a close up spot.

Although you clearly stated you do not give a rats behind about anyone elses opinion, i feel the need to give you mine lol. Why in the world would you drive around for 20 mins looking for a close parking spot when there are so many open further back but yet you complain about the "fatties."

The statement you don't agree with, doesn't actually mention parking nor handicap spaces.
The statement he doesn't agree with doesn't have to mention parking OR handicap spaces because it is related to the topic at hand in terms of those overweight people who (the respondent believes) don't need stickers. The writer is giving an insight as to why many handicap people are overweight, while trying to tie nazism into the picture. The respondent however was stepping back to look at the bigger picture, basically saying that the writer's point is moot, and a dead fish. Thus getting back to the number percentages that he believes are off base. Sure he can disagree with the statement.

Obviously there are a lot of fat people with handicap tags who don't need them posting on this thread. Just because you were issued a handicap tag doesn't mean you need one, just as a patient who is issued pain meds in the ER, and has a history of pain pill seeking doesn't need the meds, but is issued the meds anyway due to careless practicing (it happens everyday people). Perfect example is antibiotics. Now, because of these over prescribed medications, we now have super drug resistant bacteria. There are too many handicap spaces because there are too many tags being handed out that shouldn't be. Fibromyalgia should not be diagnosis for a handicap tag, although a person with a missing leg should. Many of you don't want to understand this because you think everything is an entitlement.
