I think you are the one who needs to get in the real world. I never said everyone in the real world agrees- so don't infer that I did.

Umm "The one" coming in here with his/her "masturbation" dialogues aren't exactly what I call debate either.
No I did not call you deary, that was someone else. And yes I did say you got out of control, I'll apologize for that.

karfar, there are some folks here who are hard to ignore. their inability to debate anything rationally (with proof) leads them to feel beneath us.

c'mon now. lets just stick to facts. give me some CDC data. DHS, something. and it does not have to be about illegals specifically, but that will provide a strong link to this particular thread/message board.
ill be fine with data on 3rd world people, er i mean peasants.
Please indicate where I stated that a person with a third-world disease is an illegal alien. Also show me where I stated peasants have created an epidemic in this country. Perhaps if you take that chip off your shoulder, and actually read my posts, you would grasp what I said.

I was not trying to be nasty or ruffle anyones feathers, I was just under the impression from posts on this thread that there was additioinal information about the case in San Francisco.

These questions are fair to ask. We are on an open forum. I was asking no more than anyone else would in a face to face banter. Sorry if I asked for something I had no right to.

If you are unable to make a distinction between rampant illegal immigration, and ordinary world travel, I certainly can't help you. People have been traveling in and out of this country for years without creating an epidemic. However, until recently, we did not have millions of peasants from third-world countries, the vast majority of which have never seen the inside of a doctor's office, let alone receive inoculations, living in every state in this country.
my point was not directed at you, but for the thread. this article was placed in here for a reason. posters like J are tryin to connect this case of a "3rd world disease" with illegal immigration. it has not link. thats my point. just because a hospital worker gets TB they think they are illegal. workin in the health field i know that nurses, doctors and other people are exposed to this stuff. any rational person would make the link between working at a hospital, and not with illegal immigration. but i think even thats a stretch for them.

and tho you didnt say that peasants have created and epidemic, your reasoning would lead me to beleive that you think they will.

and i didnt even try to go in on your unfounded claims of peasants who havent been innoculated or seen a doctor. how you came up with that is beyond me.

so lets just stick to the facts here.
with that said. i return the chip to its rightful owner. you.

Virtually there is no evidence that this was caused by illegals. Why is this thread still open?

There are others as well. Your patronizing comments/condescention towards the females on this forum would indicate a tendency for misogyny. Were you not held enough as a child?

That is the exact point I was trying to make. When I was told there was evidence in the form of newspaper articles I asked for them and then was told the articles were not directly related to this thread.

This thread can be equated with putting an article on the relationships forum titled "Hispanic man stole my purse", and then focus on crime among hispanics and other less dominant groups (just a nicer word of saying minority). It's ridiculous.
