Central Africa is essentially the same place as Central America. Study that shiat out.

It's a valid worry. Both the refugees entering our border from the south and the outbreak of Ebola originate in Brownistan.

That actually took longer than expected.

The sad thing is, he'll get no backlash at all, even though what he said is pure fantasy.

Considering most Americans have 0 sense of geography it will gain traction.

HotWingConspiracy: Central Africa is essentially the same place as Central America. Study that shiat out.

If you read them quickly enough, you can't even distinguish one from the other.

Is spelling 0bama with a zero a thing?  Did I miss a meeting?

FFS.  Another liar without shame.

What is it about republican representatives that they always taking incredibly stupid positions?

Is it that they are phenomenally stupid or that they are knowingly exploiting the stupidity of their constituents?

Everyplace outside the United States is the Third World, and all of it is the same disease-infested hellhole no matter where you go.  Which is why it is best to never venture more than about 10 miles from your home.

This is the guy who served Ebola-tainted road kill monkey BBQ at a fund raiser. The poor lab monkeys escaped from the Ebola Research Center across the street, and he personally ran them over to save on the food bill.

Yes, this is true.

The Honduran kids are jumping on a plane, traveling halfway around the world, catching ebola, jetting back home, and then thumbing it the last few hundred miles north.

Brilliant.

he's making terrorist threats and inciting riot.
Lock him away.

Is he stupid?
Is he a liar?
or
Is he a stupid liar?

Since he's a congresstain from IN, I think the last is most likely.

It's completely impossible that of millions of illegal aliens, some of them are sick.

Ebola... probably no.  But we do know they are bring other diseases like scabbies, measels, small pox, etc.

We should apprehend them all and put them in quarantine, like we used to do on Ellis Island, until we are sure they are safe to be moved elsewhere among the general public...

The southern influx of immigrants is already an environmental disaster, lets not allow it to become a public health disaster.

Goddamn it, America. How is it possible for you to be this galactically stupid? Of course this is going to work. Right now some Wal-Mart-Generic-Mountain-Dew swilling chucklehut is breaking out his breakfast of Ding Dongs and Marlboro Lights, having this same exact thought. And in a couple days he's going to see this Stepford Congressman on TV saying the exact same thing, and the Toddmeister will have a voter for life.

untaken_name: It's completely impossible that of millions of illegal aliens, some of them are sick.

Virtually guaranteed that some of them are sick. That's the real pisser. He could have said kids were coming in with TB and while sensationalist, it's technically accurate. However TB doesn't have the derp-line grabbing power of ebola.

BitwiseShift: This is the guy who served Ebola-tainted road kill monkey BBQ at a fund raiser. The poor lab monkeys escaped from the Ebola Research Center across the street, and he personally ran them over to save on the food bill.

You called Ebola victims "monkeys." That's racist. You must be a racist.

Farking Canuck: they are knowingly exploiting the stupidity of their constituents?

Bingo.

They have absolutely nothing, NOTHING to present in the form of a political platform, so they are now pandering to the stupid in hopes of keeping that voter.  They have no hope for a vote from anyone who can get their own shoes on the correct feet.

Why did he reach for hyperbole when we have perfectly good reality.

Incurable ("Drug resistant") highly infectious tuberculosis is scary enough, thanks.

Jackson Herring: WHAT IF MONKEYS CROSS OUR POROUS BORDER TO THE SOUTH AND THEN RUB THEIR BUTTHOLES ON US CAUSING AN EBOLA EPIDEMIC

WHAT THEN

*fapfapfapfap*

Go on...

since there aren't a lot of central americans traveling to Africa, isn't it more likely that some gringo would bring back the disease to this hemisphere and set off the chain that gets Ebola into Central America?

What an ignorant fark-stick

dwrash: Ebola... probably no.  But we do know they are bring other diseases like scabbies, measels, small pox, etc.

We should apprehend them all and put them in quarantine, like we used to do on Ellis Island, until we are sure they are safe to be moved elsewhere among the general public...

Yeah we'd better be careful their brown skin doesn't my rub off on us, first signs are wanting to take a siesta and a thirst for tequila.

Only central Americans cross the southern border. Well as long as you ignore all the non central americans crossing the border. Hint, several people from African nations have also been caught crossing the border.

Smallpox no longer exists in humans.

I hate defending a Tea Part nutjob, but that is 100% not what he said at all. He basically was saying "with everything we have going on globally (including an Ebola outbreak) placing 1000's unchecked children into out local communities is a health risk. ALSO refugees are coming to the USA from Africa, Asia, etc through (not from) Central America.

That is in fact a valid worry - he should have never used the word Ebola though.... and he's still a dillweed that shouldn't be in office.

Referencing a conversation he had with U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Newburgh, who is a heart surgeon, Rokita said they agreed there is a public health risk associated with the federal refugee agency placing immigrant children in the homes of U.S. relatives or sponsors.
"He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with Ebola circulating and everything else -- no, that's my addition to it, not necessarily his -- but he said we need to know the condition of these kids," Rokita said.

And I think the leaked report from the CBP was the source of his concern regarding Ebola:

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/08/03/Leaked-CBP-Repor t- Shows-Entire-World-Exploiting-Open-US-Border

The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred.

So yeah - there won't be backlash - he has a valid point on our now apparently completely open borders to the world. I am an extremely compassionate person, but we're farking up a lot of stuff lately.

I actually heard this on a quick trip to my grocery store friday night after work.  As I made my way through to the other side of the store (why do they keep the beer farthest from the door?), I quite literally heard "Obama letting all them mexicans in is what started this eboluuh stuff. We're all gonna get it now, it'll be in the schools before the end of the year".  It took nearly every fiber of my being to NOT stop and just have a meltdown on that person.

The real threat to America are the religious missionaries!

There was an article on Drudge via Breitbart YESTERDAY (yes I know that libs will shiat all over posting those as sources) that referenced dozens of illegal immigrants crossing that were from African Ebola Countries. But that couldn't possibly have any validity because ZOMG Fark Lib Echo Chamber early morning.

Nobody ever comes through Mexico to the US illegally except wholesome young children in need of nurture.

Really? Nobody jumped on this?

The Munster native, whose district includes Newton and Jasper counties, made the unsubstantiated claim during an interview on Indianapolis' WIBC-FM "Garrison" radio program.

Sofa King Smart: the 'heart surgeon' he mentions discussing this with, Larry Bucshon, is my congressional representative... tea bagging derper extraordinaire.

Indiana heart surgeons are well known experts on rare African infectious diseases like Ebola.

"He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with Ebola circulating and everything else -- no, that's my addition to it, not necessarily his -- but he said we need to know the condition of these kids," Rokita said.

It's funny because even when they have a sensible concern they have to phrase it in the most idiotic way possible. You could say "I am concerned that these kids being placed in crisis foster homes might not have had the robust medical screening needed to protect the generous families taking them in"..hey throw a bone to your constituents and say "generous christian families".

I'll go with the 2nd. The reason being, if they were really stupid, they would not be able to consistently make financial decisions that always benefits them. Besides a few Todd Akin type comments, so me examples of their stupidity that actually hurt themselves.

Destructor

Why did he reach for hyperbole when we have perfectly good reality.

Incurable ("Drug resistant") highly infectious tuberculosis is scary enough, thanks.

This guy's political base will be scared by all those big words and won't get the message. "Ebola" is comparatively simple (like the base) and easier to recognize.

Wow. Throw out sensationalist fantasy to get the rubes in a frenzy, and top it off with some "OMG! Those kids will raise your taxes after giving you Ebola!" for some extra derp frosting on the cake.

Dickhead congressman doesn't know how his own state's education is funded.

A republican you say? I'm shocked.

vernonFL: International flights land at Newark and JFK and Atlanta every day from Africa.

Sure, but they probably don't have many Central American refugees on board.

Destructor: Why did he reach for hyperbole when we have perfectly good reality.

Ebola is a "those people" disease. Americans get Tuberculosis, they don't get Ebola. Ebola is an African disease, so it's somehow scarier.

Kind of like how back in the 80s AIDS was a "queer disease". Never mind that it doesn't distinguish, and lots of straight drug abusers, unlucky blood donors and transfusion recipients got it, if you had AIDS you were one of "those people".

dwrash: Ebola... probably no.  But we do know they are bring other diseases like scabbies, measels, small pox, etc.

Yeah, that sounds cost effective for poor people. Maybe if they hired 10-15 Carnival cruise ships they could get the volume discount.

Stoking the fires of stupidity and fear, that is all we can count on from conservatives these days.  Extra points for him being an elected representative.

Only central Americans cross the southern border. Well as long as you ignore all the non central americans crossing the border. Hint, several people from African nations have also been caught crossing the border.

The person in NYC didn't cross the border, and nobody has suggested he or she an illegal alien.  It is just someone who flew in from West Africa.  possibly a West African tourist, or an American who went to West Africa for whatever reason.

And the virus has a maximum incubation rate of 21 days.  The people who cross the US/Mexico border spend a lot longer than that getting ready to cross.  They would have been dead before even reaching the border.

And this might be relevant if he wasn't specifically referencing Central American kids.

Did you actually go to that link? :/

Nope! Has nothing to do with Derpstick's (R-IN) comments.

dwrash: Mrs.Sharpier: dwrash: Ebola... probably no.  But we do know they are bring other diseases like scabbies, measels, small pox, etc.

We should apprehend them all and put them in quarantine, like we used to do on Ellis Island, until we are sure they are safe to be moved elsewhere among the general public...

The southern influx of immigrants is already an environmental disaster, lets not allow it to become a public health disaster.

How has it been an environmental disaster?

They are crossing in environmentally sensitive national and state parks and leaving their trash all over the place.. and trampling endangered flora.  This issue has been known for over a decade.

http://www.nyu.edu/classes/keefer/EvergreenEnergy/oakesr.html

Yep, they look illegal to me.

So the browniest people are sneaking up across the border with the brown people bringing a brown disease that could force all the white men to die and the white wimmin to be found?

If he were really concerned about health and not just about creating a political climate of fear, wouldn't he be advocating for funds to provide medical screening for immigrant children rather than have them slip surreptitiously into the underbelly of the nation? More and better housing for them so they don't live in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions that precipitate disease?

But no, fear justifies power.

CheapEngineer: Purdue_Pete: I hate defending a Tea Part nutjob, but that is 100% not what he said at all. He basically was saying "with everything we have going on globally (including an Ebola outbreak) placing 1000's unchecked children into out local communities is a health risk. ALSO refugees are coming to the USA from Africa, Asia, etc through (not from) Central America.

That is in fact a valid worry - he should have never used the word Ebola though.... and he's still a dillweed that shouldn't be in office.

Referencing a conversation he had with U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Newburgh, who is a heart surgeon, Rokita said they agreed there is a public health risk associated with the federal refugee agency placing immigrant children in the homes of U.S. relatives or sponsors.
"He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with Ebola circulating and everything else -- no, that's my addition to it, not necessarily his -- but he said we need to know the condition of these kids," Rokita said.

And I think the leaked report from the CBP was the source of his concern regarding Ebola:

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/08/03/Leaked-CBP-Repor t- Shows-Entire-World-Exploiting-Open-US-Border

The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred.

So yeah - there won't be backlash - he has a valid point on our now apparently completely open borders to the world. I am an extremely compassionate person, but we're farking up a lot of stuff lately.

Sorry, but Breitbart isn't s source, as much as a cesspool. I put more faith in things scratched in the paint of truckstop bathroom stalls.

Yup. Liars gonna lie.

Any reputable news agency link for that? I googled and saw it mentioned on a fox blog too.

also from what I can tell the reports from CBP aren't "leaked" at all...unless, using semantics like that fuels conspiracy theorists and those afraid of "the other"

If you only find it on conservative sites, all of which are claiming the librul mainstream MSM drive-by media are afraid to report the truth, did the derper make a sound?

HMS_Blinkin: The sad thing is, he'll get no backlash at all, even though what he said is pure fantasy.

that's because the democrats are the real racists, you see...

However, TB kills about 1.2M world-wide per year and that has in FACT been identified as present with a number of border crossers. The Ebola charge is remarkably unfounded, but might happen. My crystal ball fell off the table and broke so I'm at a lose for predicting the future right now.

So yeah - there won't be backlash - he has a valid point on our now apparently completely open borders to the world. I am an extremely compassionate person, but we're farking up a lot of stuff lately. Let's assume that Breitbart article is telling the truth: kids from West African countries that are currently experiencing a massive Ebola outbreak are getting run through smuggling rings to eventually get to the southern border of America. The incubation period of Ebola is, on the very high end, a few weeks. If those kids are going from the western part of Africa up to the northern part of Africa, then into the European Union, then to a Central American country, and then finally up to the border with Mexico, how quickly could they possibly make that trip? A month maybe? If any of those kids had Ebola, they'd be dead long before they even got to this hemisphere. And on the completely ridiculous chance that they did make it to America, Ebola is transferred through contact with body fluids like blood, urine, vomit, feces, and sweat. Ebola in Africa is really contagious because they generally lack public sanitation. When was the last time you saw sewage flowing down the streets anywhere in this country other than Detroit? Like you, I don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with saying we need to do a health screening of the refugees streaming across the border. I even said so when I posted this story on Facebook. But the pathological need to say the most batshiat insane things...I don't get it. I would never be able to vote for this guy if he were running in my district because he apparently thinks saying the stupidest possible things will make him more attractive as a Congressman. They make him completely unqualified IMO. Farking Canuck: What is it about republican representatives that they always taking incredibly stupid positions?

Jackson Herring: WHAT IF MONKEYS CROSS OUR POROUS BORDER TO THE SOUTH AND THEN RUB THEIR BUTTHOLES ON US CAUSING AN EBOLA EPIDEMIC WHAT THEN You people laugh like it could never happen. Happens all the time in New York. People get monkeys then the monkeys rub their butts on people and spread disease. That's why it's illegal to bring monkeys into New York state. The ignorance of the masses is just too great to overcome sometimes. In fact, did you know that in New Jersey, the government allows monkeys, and Ebola is wide spread? You don't hear about it on the news that often because Chris Christie is keeping it suppressed to avoid another scandal before his presidential run. Obama, for his part, is in utter denial and hoping to keep the entire situation quiet. The kids coming over the border were a great distraction, until some brave reps in the GOP blew the lid off the scam. It's not that Obama wants Ebola to come across the border, but he's a savvy political opportunist. He knows that a mass panic plays right into his hands. Such a cynic. Obama has also been highly successful at painting the GOP as a bunch of unorganized crazies, even when they're telling the absolute truth about things like this. The all-too-willing and gullible public gobbles it up, believing the demonstrably false narrative that the GOP doesn't have the country's best interests at heart. It's been all of three weeks since Freep lost it's mind over a piece of cloth they thought was a Muslim prayer rug on the border. Warning, autoplay videos.

Every couple years I herd a bunch of old, probably immune-weakened white Americans on adventure travel trips through Asia. Places where every order of animals live in the household in a perfect harmony of sharing viruses. Ideal incubators for a plague. And then we all come home and drive / fly to every point in the country with many stops along the way. Believe me. When the plague comes, it'll be old wealthy white people spreading it.

It's mostly the first one: stupid people being elected to congress by stupid voters, resulting in stupid positions. However, the few who are in the second category are the ones actually running the party. The sociopathic billionaires the party actually serves are happy to cater to moronic rubes with idiotic positions on "social issues" so that they (the billionaries) can enact their actual goals of setting up government to cater to them and their business interests. In this case, the voters are just useful idiots. I'd also lump Ted Cruz into the latter group, since he almost certainly doesn't believe anything he says to get the rubes going, but is using them as a vehicle for his own personal advancement.

That's irresponsible from every conceivable angle. during one of the GOP primary debates, Michelle Bachman actually said that the HPV vaccine gave mental retardation to a girl. Even the idiots that believe in the autism/vaccine link blame the immunizations received during infancy, which is when a parent or doctor may determine that a child has missed out on developmental stages and probably has a cognitive disability. But Bachman brought it to a whole new level by suggesting that a vaccine administered to girls ages 11-12 could cause spontaneous mental retardation. Her response when the media called her out on the dangers of making such uninformed statements that could cause a health panic... "well, i'm not a doctor". This is the republican party... a bunch of idiots giving their uninformed opinions on subjects they do not understand without any regard for the consequences It is so scary to see how the mentality that lead to the Japanese Internment camps of WW II still exists today.

He is also going to demand that all of the children already here in the US get sent back immediately. Then, he is going to go home at night, dislocate his rotator cuff patting himself on the back, and sleep the sleep of the just(plain stupid) because he also called for less government waste at the border, since nobody needs medical screening if they're just going home. He won't spend a single second thinking about the contact the people at the border will have with these people before sending them on their way.

I'm pleasantly surprised. It is significantly worse than in the U.S. or Canada. The incidence rates (new cases per 100,000 people) of regular TB are worse in Central America (about 50 in Honduras and Guatemala, compared to around 4 in the US). However, that's still relatively low (compare to, for example, 970 in South Africa, or 231 in Pakistan). The prevalence (number of people infected) is higher in the US for both regular and drug-resistant TB. Weird how a phrase starts on the internet and it thrown around the world so fast.

Little boys and girls can just walk right across. Al Qaeda, Taliban, Hamas, ect I'm sure are paying attention. Ebola carriers??? No reason to secure our boarders." "These "children" didn't just wander 1200 miles from Central America they had help. Help that came from several places. The Dream act, an open invitation to just come on over and set a spell at the US expense. Some of these "children" are actually gang members from Mexico..Some are from Qatar, Syria, Yemen. Are some now from Liberia and Sierra Leona? We don't know who or what is coming across the border. Read more at " "It's not a "journey alone." They're being sent with "coyotes" - human smugglers. The children are only a small fraction of those crossing. Customs & Border Protection has reported apprehending people from over 75 countries recently, including areas from the Ebola outbreak and known terrorist nations. The focus is on the children to generate sympathy, but there's a MUCH larger problem that's being ignored." blasterz: Grandemadaca: [2.bp.blogspot.com image 550x578][www.bethisad.com image 540x832] All those dark skinned continents look alike.

Friction8r: CheapEngineer: Purdue_Pete: I hate defending a Tea Part nutjob, but that is 100% not what he said at all. He basically was saying "with everything we have going on globally (including an Ebola outbreak) placing 1000's unchecked children into out local communities is a health risk. ALSO refugees are coming to the USA from Africa, Asia, etc through (not from) Central America. That is in fact a valid worry - he should have never used the word Ebola though.... and he's still a dillweed that shouldn't be in office. Referencing a conversation he had with U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Newburgh, who is a heart surgeon, Rokita said they agreed there is a public health risk associated with the federal refugee agency placing immigrant children in the homes of U.S. relatives or sponsors. "He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with Ebola circulating and everything else -- no, that's my addition to it, not necessarily his -- but he said we need to know the condition of these kids," Rokita said. And I think the leaked report from the CBP was the source of his concern regarding Ebola: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/08/03/Leaked-CBP-Repor t- Shows-Entire-World-Exploiting-Open-US-Border The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred. So yeah - there won't be backlash - he has a valid point on our now apparently completely open borders to the world. I am an extremely compassionate person, but we're farking up a lot of stuff lately. Sorry, but Breitbart isn't s source, as much as a cesspool.

The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred. So yeah - there won't be backlash - he has a valid point on our now apparently completely open borders to the world. I am an extremely compassionate person, but we're farking up a lot of stuff lately. Linking to Breitbart?? Seriously?? Chameleon: Smackledorfer: fireclown: Chameleon: And is no more common in Central America than it is in the US,,, Thanks for the data. I would have thought TB would have been worse in Central America. I'm pleasantly surprised. It is significantly worse than in the U.S. or Canada. The incidence rates (new cases per 100,000 people) of regular TB are worse in Central America (about 50 in Honduras and Guatemala, compared to around 4 in the US). However, that's still relatively low (compare to, for example, 970 in South Africa, or 231 in Pakistan). The prevalence (number of people infected) is higher in the US for both regular and drug-resistant TB. Yea you wouldn't want to use the incidence rate that reflects the chances of contracting a disease that has latent and active stages right? Also convenient how you chopped off the rest of my post explaining how people fleeing their countries are unlikely to be a representative sampling. Welcome to fark I suppose. JusticeandIndependence: Your assumption that it should be equal is where you failed. I don't know if you were around during the Fark political leaning meter times. Fark made a feeble effort to show that they really weren't extremely left leaning. So, the assumption is from Fark that they are somehow neutral. What I amazed is this guy has the smarts to not call the Midwest "Central America", because everything else he says is flaming pants on head retarded. Damn, you liberal farkers will circle jerk to anything. I find it interesting that 0bama wants to allow illegals in wo any screening, but his birth state keeps inbound pets quarantined for 3 months. Let's just dump all the illegals in Hawaii. What could go wrong? Smidge204: Grandemadaca: All those dark skinned continents look alike. Does it bother you at all that the map of South America is hilariously wrong, and apparently sourced from an alternative history collaboration project? If nothing else, the fact that Brazil isn't the largest country on the map should have been a tip-off... =Smidge= Meh. Does it matter? They all have teh ebola. /didn't look closely when picking maps for my lame joke. THIS IS WHAT REPUBLICAN VOTERS ACTUALLY BELIEVE nytmare: RadiomanATL: Yes, this is true. The Honduran kids are jumping on a plane, traveling halfway around the world, catching ebola, jetting back home, and then thumbing it the last few hundred miles north. Brilliant. Same thing Obama's mom did while giving birth. It all makes sense now. SlothB77: At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014. So this person who leaked this report, who spoke only to Breibart (the most reputable of sources) on the condition of anonymity ... did he give the report to the site, and if so, why can't we see the report? I don't understand how you can be so completely skeptical on the one hand but eat whatever shiat they shovel into your mouth with the other. And then knowing the facts of how Ebola virus works and kills its host without major interventions (and even then, you'd likely die) how these individuals made it to the US alive? Thank you brave sir.

Ybowl'a Smackledorfer: Yea you wouldn't want to use the incidence rate that reflects the chances of contracting a disease that has latent and active stages right? Also convenient how you chopped off the rest of my post explaining how people fleeing their countries are unlikely to be a representative sampling. Welcome to fark I suppose. Using the incidence vs prevalence depends on what you are trying to talk about. If you are saying that a person from these countries are more likely to have TB than a person from the US, then yes, you are right and you should be talking about the incidence. If, however, you are trying to say that a wave of dirty immigrants is going to be coming up from the south and spreading their dirty diseases everywhere, then it is perfectly valid to note that the number of people coming into the country with TB is vastly smaller than the number of people already in the country with TB and it's stupid to panic over something that will not significantly bump the prevalence rates, and thereby will not significantly increase the chances of the average person coming into contact with the disease. The incidence rate does NOT reflect the chances of your contracting the disease in this case, unless you happen to be coming into close contact with a recent migrant, in which case your chance increases a tiny bit. I don't really get your point about TB having active and latent states, especially since latent TB is not usually spread? And I cut off the rest of your comment because I didn't disagree with it and therefore had no comment, and I hate when walls o'text get posted over and over, so welcome to Fark, I guess? Ah, main page crosspost. Of course. Weidbrewer: Is spelling 0bama with a zero a thing? Did I miss a meeting? It's a way for the libs to make Republicans look like they are disrespecting the office. The Know-Nothings just called from 1856, and want their anti-Irish slur back. So.. Why is it that the "Pants-shiattingly-scared vs Not freaking out" divide is tracking pretty much exactly along "Republicans vs Everyone Else" lines? nytmare: RadiomanATL: Yes, this is true. The Honduran kids are jumping on a plane, traveling halfway around the world, catching ebola, jetting back home, and then thumbing it the last few hundred miles north. Brilliant. Same thing Obama's mom did while giving birth. Or Ted Cruz's mom. I want to get the notion that he's an anchor babby out there ASAP. Go ahead. Google it. You're gonna want to know before 2016 that probably isn't eligible to be President. I wish the media had the balls to just call out this sort of nonsense. Yes, they said "completely unsubstantiated claims" and "not one single case of Ebola has ever been contracted in the Western Hemisphere," but for those who skim the article or are geographically-challenged, why can't the headline just be: "Congressman Rokita's Fear-Mongering Lies Have No Basis in Fact"? When people stop trying desperately to get into this country it probably won't be worth coming to. Keep rubbing the luster off that Shining City on a Hill, eventually you'll get exactly what you want.

Dr. Jack Badofsky: A- A- A lot of doctors are telling you how dangerous the summer sun's rays can be. So here's my summer tip: watch out for creatures that are foaming at the mouth. That's right. Summer is a prime time for abdivorus, commonly known as rabies. [holds up a stack of cards, which he reveals one at a time] "Rabies." But I doubt that you are aware of the many strains of rabies that you can fall victim to. For example, should you be bitten by an ownerless dog, that's "Straybies." And a foaming French poodle can give you "Qu'est-ce Que-C'estbies." A- A mad Mexican hairless can give you "Alejandro-Reybies," a crazed reindeer can inflict "Sleighbies," a spider bite can lead to "Curds- and-Wheybies," and a demented gorilla's a potential killer with "Fay- Wraybies." A grandmother frothing at the mouth can inflict "Crochetbies," and being bitten by a stuttering bigot can lead to "K-K-K-bies." Getting bitten by Elmer Fudd can give you a real painful case of "Waybies," and if you're making love to a woman and you finish before she does, she's liable to get mad and bite you. That's "Mislaybies." [applause] I was once bitten by my former wife and got "Ex-Raybies." She was a radiologist. [some groans] A bite by a wry humorist can give you "Carawaybies." [more groans] That's a wry humorist...OK. Being bitten by a rabid rabbi can get you "Oy-Veybies," [applause] and if you leg gets chomped on by a crazy poet, that's "Edna-St.-Vincent- Milaybies." And "Paraguaybies" is what you get if you're bitten by two mad Latin American homosexuals. Linda Lovelace could get you "Fellabies"- Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Thank you brave sir.

She went on break and I asked the dealer 'Where'd the pretty pit boss go?" She replied "You mean the BLACK girl?" in a disgusted voice. I was a bit floored.

Tricky Chicken: I grew up in Northwest Indiana Smackledorfer How much detail? I can label all fifty states. I cannot give capitals for many of them. My knowledge of state borders has little effect on my life. The same goes for my lack of capital memorization. As for wasting time: it would be almost impossible to spend more time looking up the capital of georgia (yes I know it) than it would take to memorize it in the first place. That is the folly of excessive rote memorization. Having some awareness of one's surroundings isn't always 100% about practicality or need.

I remember Chicago was extremely segregated not only by race, but also by country of origin. They had Irish, Polish and several other background specific neighborhoods. I get the impression the whole area is xenophobic. Fart_Machine: dwrash: Just remember.. environmentalism is only good when it doesn't run counter to other 'humanitarian' issues.

Mikey1969 I read a great article on this awhile back. People in Europe don't really know jack about the US(Yeah, they know that Texas is full of "cowboys", and stuff like that), but they know all about Europe. The US is bigger than Europe. The point was that people in the US have comparable geographical knowledge to Europeans who can cross 3 countries in a day. It was rather interesting. It helps to think of it in terms of units: RI is small and TX isn't, but each is one unit. I believe there are currently 28 members in the European Union. Someone living in the EU and having good knowledge of all the members would be comparable to someone having good knowledge of 56% of the US. That sounds pretty reasonable. snowshovel: Weidbrewer: Is spelling 0bama with a zero a thing? Did I miss a meeting?

If, however, you are trying to say that a wave of dirty immigrants is going to be coming up from the south and spreading their dirty diseases everywhere, then it is perfectly valid to note that the number of people coming into the country with TB is vastly smaller than the number of people already in the country with TB and it's stupid to panic over something that will not significantly bump the prevalence rates, and thereby will not significantly increase the chances of the average person coming into contact with the disease. The incidence rate does NOT reflect the chances of your contracting the disease in this case, unless you happen to be coming into close contact with a recent migrant, in which case your chance increases a tiny bit. I don't really get your point about TB having active and latent states, especially since latent TB is not usually spread? And I cut off the rest of your comment because I didn't disagree with it and therefore had no comment, and I hate when walls o'text get posted over and over, so welcome to Fark, I guess? When incidence is higher it means you have people carrying a disease and spreading it without knowing they have it and/or the way(s) to reduce spreading it. Couple this with a bacteria that remains latent for up to a decade iirc and prevalence numbers are going to be far less informative than one might otherwise think. But I see we mostly agree on this issue on the whole, so no need to nitpick. dwrash: (FYI, my daughters kids are half pakistani and my sons kids are half african-american).

I grew up in Northwest Indiana, the rampant racism is why I'll never move back.

She went on break and I asked the dealer 'Where'd the pretty pit boss go?" She replied "You mean the BLACK girl?" in a disgusted voice. I was a bit floored.

You're still wrong, sunshine. Now back on subject, which is Stupid Republican Said Something Stupid To Rile Up His Voting Base.

Yes, your research methodology is so much better than that of fivethirtyeight that you don't even have to back anything up.  Nice try pumpkin.  Just because it doesn't fit into your preconceived world view doesn't mean you can make it go away by denial.

And on the off chance you are a serious individual.

The 538 model didn't use natural language processing it simply counted uses of the term 'impeachment' from a Lexis Nexis search. As such the following results would all return positive.

We should impeach the president
We shouldnt' impeach the president
Why is that side talking about impeaching the president
Why isn't that side taking about impeaching the president
Why is TrickyChicken being dishonest about impeaching the president

and so on

Tricky Chicken: Vodka Zombie: You should try Wisconsin sometime.  Their racism is way more pernicious and institutionalized.

What gets me is the automatic assumption that I agree.  Do they act like that in WI as well?  I remember Chicago was extremely segregated not only by race, but also by country of origin.  They had Irish, Polish and several other background specific neighborhoods.  I get the impression the whole area is xenophobic.

Most places in the parts of Wisconsin I visit (near Minnesota) don't have any racial differences to remark upon, unless we're going to count Norwegians and Germans as different races.

Not embarrassed... its just how it came out when I separated them into which kids belong to who.

FYI, the biggest challenges my kids face are their cultural differences while the kids are pretty oblivious to things at this point.

Nice try at deflection though.

dwrash: Ebola... probably no.  But we do know they are bring other diseases like scabbies, measels, small pox, etc.

We should apprehend them all and put them in quarantine, like we used to do on Ellis Island, until we are sure they are safe to be moved elsewhere among the general public...

The southern influx of immigrants is already an environmental disaster, lets not allow it to become a public health disaster.

Well, thank you, Dr. Dwrash. Considering that a) smallpox exists only in laboratories b) scabies is a parasitic infection cured by simple hygiene and c) measles is a threat only to the unvaccinated, I think your concerns can be noted and dismissed. A better plan would be to ensure that ALL kids of school age are healthy and vaccinated by properly funding school nurse programs.

Also, environmental disaster? Are you referring to the litter problem on immigrant routes? Yeah, on a scale of 1 to BP Oil Spill, that's about a 2.

Lord_Baull: Triple Oak: But seriously, how is this not exhausting for these politicians? To lie and twist every day, all day, to fuel a rabid fan base of idiots?

I personally find it amusing how they rile up the base for 3 years with this shiat, then spend the election year explaining how they are moderate and bi-partisan and how it's really Oblahma that's not compromising. Then spend the next year wondering why their message didn't resonate.

Unfortunately, the message resonates to the important people, and by important people I mean those unimportant peons who vote for them. Nationally, they're an embarrassment, but in their little world of lobbyist-style back pocket funding, aides to always assure and stay positive, and potential reelection, they feel GREAT!

And then they lose to Obama and all hell breaks loose, impeachment talks from day one (even though, according to some non-sources, one side is "obsessed" with talking about it, because it's a terribly stupid idea that should be talked about), "folksy racism" exhibited by Farkers and Congresscritters alike... it goes on and on, my friends...

Ok, I think you may have been saying that republicans and democrats have their representative samples of racists.  Which is true.  Some people seem to think republicans are predominantly racist.  That has been shown to be wrong.

Now there are pockets of population where racism is much more prevalent.

It is sad, but that kind of thinking is drilled into the kids very early.  The stereotypes I heard as a kid led me to think that because I like watermelon, fried chicken, don't like to work hard, am lazy, and like free stuff, that I was really a black person.  Since I did not know what made a person black, I figured that eventually my skin was going to start darkening and I was going to have to go away and live with another family.

Yep, they look illegal to me.

No, there is a very legitimate issue here. Having lived in AZ(And having spent a lot of time in a town 10 miles from the border), this is a real thing. The farmers and ranchers complaining about this around 2000-2004 or or so is where this started. They actually have a legitimate beef.

I'm from the southeast and I've actually found that everyone is Xenophobic in different ways.

The northeast is good old racist.  You can tell where they're going and what for.  Not anti-religious (exception for antisemitism in new england ).

Southeastern people are anti-islamic and anti-athiest, but actually LESS racist than everywhere else I've been.  We also have less antisemitism in many states.  I would like to note that "antisemitism" and "preconceived notions about jewish people" are two different things.  There are preconceived notions, just not "damn jews control everything" or "cheap bastard" notions.

South Westerners seem to just plain hate "Mexicans".  It probably stems from frustration of having a significant portion of the population cross the border and not being able to effectively communicate.  But I haven't seen anyone who cares about religion in the slightest.

I don't know the mid-westerners or north westerners well enough to judge them as a group and lump them all together in a way that makes me feel superior.  I know the north-west had a nazi problem in the 90s.

Holy Crap! It's true! Some lunatic in a loincloth and Denver Broncos Super XLVIII Champions tshirt just burst through my door and took a big bloody dump on rug. He ran out and jumped into a van that said 'Change We Can Believe In.'

Whatever your particular problem is, I promise you, the GOP is not the least bit interested in solving it. They are interested in two things and two things only: making you afraid of it and telling you who's to blame for it. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you win elections. You gather a group of middle-aged, middle-class, middle-income voters who remember with longing an easier time, and you talk to them about family and American values and character. And wave an old photo of the President's middle name and you scream about patriotism and you tell them he's to blame for their lot in life, and you go on television and you call him a muslim.

BTW, dumb people, Ebola is hard to catch. It requires close contact with bodily fluids. The reason it spreads in Africa is because people there hand-wash their dead before burial, and get exposed to the virus. In antiseptic America or Europe, it wouldn't spread at all.

Localized across hundreds of miles of the US/Mexico border. Far, FAR more than the guys in ATVs in the picture I responded to were doing. But I get it, those were WHITE men, so they automatically increase their own environmental damage by a factor of 10,000.

Rolling coal is a constitutional right under the First Amendment. Picking up litter or requiring corporations to clean up the messes they make is big-government socialism. Preventing people from dumping their old furniture and shiat in the desert is another form of government interference.

If you make illegal aliens pick up their litter, that means you have to let them into the country to do so.

A side note, one can go out into the deserts of SE California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas (and pretty much any rural area in the country) and find giant piles of old televisions and household appliances and broken bottles surrounded by thousands of empty shell casings. But that isn't illegal aliens doing that, so it's ok.

The CIA is flying them over in a black flag operation targeted at Conservatives who live in Border States. All the Border states voted Romney in the last election, so this is revenge for their politics.

Why need the CIA when Fartbama can just simply fly American ebola patients over here first class care of the CDC, NIH, and NIAID to spread the virus and put all that FEMA funding, the FEMA guns and ammo, and the FEMA camps to work?

Conservatives were slow to pick up on the "illegal immigrants spread ebola" talking point because they've been focused on that one for over a week thanks to Rushbo and Alex Jones.

Yay. Another thread ruined by trolls, even though there are no trolls on Fark.

CheapEngineer: Purdue_Pete: I hate defending a Tea Part nutjob, but that is 100% not what he said at all.

ALSO refugees are coming to the USA from Africa, Asia, etc through (not from) Central America.

That is in fact a valid worry - he should have never used the word Ebola though.... and he's still a dillweed that shouldn't be in office.

Referencing a conversation he had with U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Newburgh, who is a heart surgeon, Rokita said they agreed there is a public health risk associated with the federal refugee agency placing immigrant children in the homes of U.S. relatives or sponsors.
"He said, look, we need to know just from a public-health standpoint, with Ebola circulating and everything else -- no, that's my addition to it, not necessarily his -- but he said we need to know the condition of these kids," Rokita said.

And I think the leaked report from the CBP was the source of his concern regarding Ebola:

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/08/03/Leaked-CBP-Repor t- Shows-Entire-World-Exploiting-Open-US-Border

The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred.

So yeah - there won't be backlash - he has a valid point on our now apparently completely open borders to the world. I am an extremely compassionate person, but we're farking up a lot of stuff lately.

Sorry, but Breitbart isn't s source, as much as a cesspool. I put more faith in things scratched in the paint of truckstop bathroom stalls.

But you'll eat up anything you read on raw story or mother jones, right?

But that isn't illegal aliens doing that, so it's ok.

Apparently, this is also perfectly acceptable:

How much detail?

I can label all fifty states. I cannot give capitals for many of them.

My knowledge of state borders has little effect on my life. The same goes for my lack of capital memorization.

As for wasting time: it would be almost impossible to spend more time looking up the capital of georgia (yes I know it) than it would take to memorize it in the first place. That is the folly of excessive rote memorization.

Having some awareness of one's surroundings isn't always 100% about practicality or need.

We'll have to agree to disagree on what constitutes "excessive rote memorization".

So how much detail then?
Let me guess, about the exact amount you happen to know, with those knowing more having wasted time and knowing less deserving your ridicule? :p

Who the hell cares what friggin color they are?.. seriously.  You lefties are the biggest racists ever.  (FYI, my daughters kids are half pakistani and my sons kids are half african-american)... people need to quit playing the friggin race card.

Your ability to distinguish who is playing the race card is noted.

I know EXACTLY who is playing the race card... the democrats... they make a living off of it because a few fringe groups on the right are asses and they what to characterize the opposition as racist (even though the vast majority are not).

You also seem to hide the fact that your party and the last KKK member in congress, formed the KKK itself and has done everything to kill reconstruction since the civil war.  You thrive on race bating... and you embrace racists like Sharpton and Jackson and give them a pass.

Democrats like Strom Thurmond and David Duke.

Confusean: Damn, you liberal farkers will circle jerk to anything. I find it interesting that 0bama wants to allow illegals in wo any screening, but his birth state keeps inbound pets quarantined for 3 months. Let's just dump all the illegals in Hawaii. What could go wrong?

I think the most satisfying thing about threads like this is that most of these lib circle jerkers log into Fark politics threads throughout their "workday" while earning slave wages from their 1 percenter conservative overlords! No wonder they seethe with impotent rage!

Yeah, those have been drained of caustic fluids and are actually maintained. Your point?

Tricky Chicken: JusticeandIndependence: Your assumption that it should be equal is where you failed.

I don't know if you were around during the Fark political leaning meter times.  Fark made a feeble effort to show that they really weren't extremely left leaning.  So, the assumption is from Fark that they are somehow neutral.

Fark is not left leaning, it leans to funny.  The vast majority of stupid to make fun of is on the right, face it you are on the side of the stupid, deal with it.

I assume thats why you're here.

fireclown: He didn't actually suggest that the south american illegals actually HAD ebola, he mentioned that they could well have diseases (a legit concern).

Hmm. I think you meant Central american kids. I'm sure most, if not all of the undocumented kids people are talking about come from Central American nations. For south american kids come all the way up to the southern U.S. border to cross it illegally would be a very difficult, daunting and almost impossible ordeal. Not only the trip would be very, very long, but there is an almost impassable and mostly inhabited jungle/swampland area between Panama and Colombia called Darien Gap where if you don't die from some tropical disease, you as a kid probably would get recruited by guerrillas. So I guess we are pretty much safe from ebola carried by south american kids crossing the southern US border..

CheapEngineer: We have to swallow as farking truth every last random blog post and Breitbart link *you* post, but we're not allowed to believe anything *we* see on the Internet?

Liberals do nothing but lie.  That's why they're called LIE-burals.

Conservatives tell The Truth™, the whole The Truth™, and nothing but The Truth™.

Race-baiting? Check.

Well, that seems pretty clear. *ahem*

How the buttered FARK do these demonstrably stupid creatures get elected? If we're going to discuss public health hazards, let's start with whatever is in the water in these voting districts. There's obviously something having a deleterious effect on cognition and higher brain functions.

What makes you think I'm on the side of the right?  I am just right of the majority of Fark.  In other circles, they accuse me of being a lefty loonie hippie freak anti-murrican.

The Why Not Guy: Tricky Chicken: Ok, I think you may have been saying that republicans and democrats have their representative samples of racists.

You've now attributed two claims to me which are in direct contradiction to each other.

First I asked for a clarification of what your position might be.  Hence the question mark.  Then based upon your reply, I noted what your reply led me to believe.  I was trying to understand whatever position you had.  But now your position has become a moot point and I no longer am interested.

Tea Party Campaign Tactics:

1. If your opponent says something bat-shiat crazy or utterly stupid, counter it with something even more bat-shiat crazy or mind-numbingly stupid.

3. Emphasize your anti-semitism, but praise Israel every chance you get. This works even if you are just running for county commissioner.

4. Make sure potential voters know that you know and support that God hate such Sodomites as queers, Democrats, Canadians and all Europeans.

5. Learn to say mi casa est su casa even as you vote to send raped alien children back home to be raped again.

6. Appear on Sarah Palin's internet channel.

7. Hold a birther rally.

8. Insist that all government functions except the military and the FBI be privatized.

9. Misquote the Constitution at least once weekly.

10. Blame Obama.

Correct.  I misspoke.  I tend to think of everything south of Mexico as South America.  I meant Central America.

LazyMedia: BTW, dumb people, Ebola is hard to catch. It requires close contact with bodily fluids. The reason it spreads in Africa is because people there hand-wash their dead before burial, and get exposed to the virus. In antiseptic America or Europe, it wouldn't spread at all.

The Why Not Guy: Tricky Chicken: But now your position has become a moot point and I no longer am interested.

Aww, what's wrong? Can't think of a third lie to tell about me?

I said no lie about you.  You were unclear.  And you do not seem to understand how questions work.  Go back and re-read the interaction.

[media.boingboing.net image 600x641]

Well, I am concerned about ebola and haven't had contact with anybody with the disease in any manner.  It would be nice if we made some concentrated efforts to help the people in Africa that are at the greatest risk from the disease.  But we do not seem to pay large amounts of attention to dying people in Africa very often.  Unless we can make a movie about it later or perhaps have a hashtag campaign.

Tricky Chicken: I said no lie about you.  You were unclear.  And you do not seem to understand how questions work.  Go back and re-read the interaction.

Your "question" had absolutely no relation to what I said. You were not asking for clarification, because what I said was 1. not unclear and 2. completely unrelated to what you were "just asking". Here's a summary:

1 - Poster claims only Democrats make race an issue.
2 - I respond with two examples of racism from non-Democrats. I mentioned Tea Partiers in my reply, but did not mention Republicans.
3 - You ask if I think Republicans have a monopoly on racists.

You're not as tricky as you seem to think.

Guys, I cannot even tell what's real anymore.

This post is startlingly close to shiat I hear irl.

So you are in no way concerned about illegal immigrants carrying untreated diseases? Just a non-issue, right?

How much of an issue has it been for the last...*counts on fingers* 238 years?

I mean if this is that serious an issue, if communicable disease is rampant, we should probably just suspend international travel all together. Seriously, because THEY DON'T DO HEALTH SCREENINGS AT AIRPORTS! And millions of people fly in and out of the United states every day and they co-mingle with people from AFRICAN EBOLA COUNTRIES! How has this public health menace not been addressed by the president?????

Ground all planes and anchor all ships until we get this disease parade under control!

Or were you under the impression that only illegal immigrants carry disease?

This is a perfect story for Fark.com because Republicans being idiots is not news.

This has been on the news in some form or another for weeks. There is a huge on-going operation to contain, treat and combat Ebola in Africa.

Is it painful to be that wrong? Seriously, did you sprain something?

The only things you can do for Ebola are to prevent it through proper sanitation, which we are helping to construct, and manage the spread of the virus through isolation, which I believe we are doing with people in west Africa. There simply is no cure. Hell, the emergency drug that the two American doctors took had only ever been tested on eight macaques beforehand, and they had no damn clue that it would work.

So How is asking if you think republicans have a monopoly on racism lying about you even a little bit?

The above sentence is formatted as a question.  It does not meant as a statement attribution any position to you whatsoever.  It is merely a request that you clarify a position. The question (3) you refer to is a simple 'yes' or 'no' question which you did not bother to answer.  Instead you charged that it was in some way assigning a position to you.  The non responsive reply you made led my reply which I conditioned with the preface "I think" since you were not forward with a cogent reply.  Now you are into petty semantics about a position you are unwilling to advance. What is your position?

Many of these illegal aliens coming over aren't even potty trained...and that's the adults! In the Illegal Alien holding centers the Border Patrol and immigration have to teach adults and teens how to use a toilet

Ebola is spread by lack on sewage and sanitation. Ebola can spread easily among mestizos who do not practice proper hygiene and sanitation...just as it does in Africa

Ebola is Cholera on steroids

grumpfuff: Yay. Another thread ruined by trolls, even though there are no trolls on Fark.

Yup, we've seen attempts to deflect to:

"No, he's totally right"
"Fark is biased"
"Democrats are the real racists"
"The left are the ones talking about impeachment. "
"No it's an environmental concern."

kbronsito: since there aren't a lot of central americans traveling to Africa, isn't it more likely that some gringo would bring back the disease to this hemisphere and set off the chain that gets Ebola into Central America?

Yes, that's part of why the CDC is taking so many precautions.
