Providing Access for Handicapped

Bolte speaks of his “right” to park in handicapped parking spaces and laments the fact that other non-handicapped drivers often steal these spaces. That Bolte has a “right” to park in such spaces is absurd. All of us are handicapped to one extent or another (I myself am so poor I do not have a car to park in any space) but people who believe in personal freedom and responsibility do not pressure the government to pass laws at the expense of others to help themselves--they make do with what they have or improve themselves in the marketplace. Bolte would do well to quit whining about his ersatz “rights” and pull himself up by his bootstraps.
