What? I have no idea who's female or not. Yeah, I called you sweetie. However, I directed my earlier post at nicolem & I did NOT call her deary. And for the record, there are MANY on this forum who are condescending, specifically condescsending towards others who do not agree w/their posts. Let's just keep that straight, ok? And by your post, I would maybe rethink your whole idea about me, you don't seem very adult.

Gee I am sure no one on here but ME has ever posted articles that while not exactly like the original topic do indeed pertain to the topic raised. What is my punishment-50 lashes with a wet noodle? Deportation?

OK the original article did not state they were illegals. I never said it did nor did I try to say so. The thread discussion took off and I wanted to discuss the increase in diseases that we here have eradicated in the USA and it's relationship to the 20+ million illegal aliens who have NOT been tested for disease. I posted articles about illegals and TB which obviously arent good enough for some. I don't see why that is such a stretch for some of you . How many threads on citidata stay 100% on topic. It is not like I posted something totally opposite.


I hope no one here ever strays even slightly from a topic-or it will be 50 lashes with a wet noodle for you.

Meaning it was hi-jacked? Meaning the thread shouldn't have been put here in the first place? Meaning if you want to make a thread about illegals and TB, no one is stopping anyone and everything would be fine and dandy?

I don't care if you go off topic, I was simply looking for proof from JDub, which I have still to get. Personally, I don't mind if people go off topic, but I've been bitched at about it before & also been reprimended by mods.

In most industrialized countries, the annual numbers of cases and deaths caused by tuberculosis (TB) have steadily declined over the past century up to the mid-1980s (1,2) (Figure 1). Since then, an increasing number of TB cases in immigrants has reversed this downward trend in countries that have had substantial levels of immigration from areas with a high prevalence of the disease (1,3,4) (Figure 2). Today, the proportion of immigrants among persons reported as having TB exceeds 50% in several European countries, including Denmark, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland (5). A similar proportion has been predicted for the United States in 2002 (3). In Denmark, the doubling in reported TB cases over the last 15 years has reflected, in large measure, TB in immigrants from Somalia* (6), who also account for a sizeable proportion of TB cases in other European countries and North America (7–11).

Is this intended to be a joke or something? If so, it is not funny.

This is precisely why it's so difficult to engage in a debate with many pro-illegals. They think everything is fair game for joking. What else can we expect from people who have no regard for anything that isn't illegal?
