dwrash: The Why Not Guy: dwrash: I know EXACTLY who is playing the race card... the democrats...

So when we see people at Tea Party rallies with shirts that say "Put the White Back in the White House" or a bumper sticker that says "Don't Re-Nig in 2012" that's Democrats?

Irrelevant... besides we know that most of that crap has been photo-shopped anyhow.

Do you believe everything you see on the internet?

And yes, I know there are racists out there.. there are on both sides... its just the Democrats seem to make a living out of it.


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?

dwrash: LazyMedia: 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.

You forgot TB...

Deathfrogg: 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.


Apparently, this is also perfectly acceptable:

Dear US friends, isn't it time you started testing your politicians for a measurable IQ and at least a basic knowledge of the world outside your borders as well as current events ?

/Yes, so should we.

Nadie_AZ: Serious Black: Tricky Chicken: Welcome to totally not liberal Fark, where over 90% if the politics articles over the last day have promoted liberal positions.

Okay, smarty-pants, tell me exactly how a poor kid from Liberia is supposed to get infected with Ebola, smuggle him or herself to Honduras, link up with a coyote there, get taken to the American border, and get released by the authorities into the public before the incubation period ends and he starts bleeding out.

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.

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.

Englebert Slaptyback: 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.

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

Just remember, environmentalism is bad unless scary brown kids are involved.  Then we've got to shoot them in the head for Jesus.

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.

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..

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

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.

2. Sneeringly call your opponent a Librul, even if your opponent is Adolph Hitler.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

Again, if you can find a post where I said Republicans have a monopoly on racists or racism, I'll donate 50 bucks to your favorite charity in your name. If you can't, just admit you made it up.


I never said what you are accusing me of saying.  Why are you lying about me?

PsiChick: 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.

/Can I punch this asshole in the face?
//The whole 'WE HAVE A CURE BUT WE'RE ONLY GIVING IT TO THE WHITES HA HA' meme is annoying enough
///It's a dangerous disease. We need to act like rational adults, because if this is what starts the apocalypse I'mma crack some skulls together before I go.

ZombiesezCafeeeeeennnn: 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?


Wow, this has only been going on for weeks? I must have seriously sprained something being that wrong.  For a while there I wrought this had been going on since the start of spring and had only recently started hitting the news here big time. I guess about 20 weeks is still a number of weeks.

Couldn't find where I said any such thing, could you? The offer stands if you need more time, though I doubt you'll be any more successful.
