    I used to work for a doctor who did Immigration Physicals for legal immigrants who came to America through legal channels. These legal immigrants where given two years, from the date of their immigration, to have an Immigration Physical. The physical was part of the process of becoming an American citizen. I cannot tell you how many of these people showed positive for TB, Pertussis (whooping cough), sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV), etc. They had already been in America living, working, attending school, without being screened for any potential diseases (and perhaps they contracted these diseases here in America. I’ll concede that as a possibility. That was six years ago. Maybe things have changed since then, but I highly doubt it.) However, my point is, it’s not just the illegals we need to worry about. Although, in my opinion we need to stop this influx of people coming into our country illegally, we also need to change the laws for those who come here legally, in a medical point of view, among other things. An open door policy is an open door to destruction. I’m all for people coming to America LEGALLY to pursue a better life. I just think they all should be healthy and a potential asset for America before being allowed to immigrate here.

    The movie trailers made me think the same.

    Looks like Al only got a new suit. I think the “Today” show might be a bit racists? Baa,ha,haaaaaa!

    Sadly, I have to agree.

    Why don’t they just buy an American product?

    You just made me give a “Bark” of laughter. That doesn’t happen very often. Thank You!

    Cold enough to freeze the ballzs of a brass monkey. Or colder than a witch’s teet in a brass bra. lol Now if it was dark it would be; darker than a well diggers azz. Or if we we’re talking about an insane person some might say, “He’s crazier than a S**t-house rat. Or if the article was portraying something outta this world (global warming/climate change) and the powers-that-be were trying to make us believe it, we could say, “Yep, when S**t-sticks to the moon, baby. When S**t-sticks to the moon. Te-he. Te-he.

    Sorry objectivetruth. I forgot about the saline and anticoags. Although, if done correctly, the donor should have no after affects of saline or anticoags from donating blood. If it’s not to forward of me to ask, what was done to you to keep you from donating? Did you need to use Bactrim to fight an infection introduced during a blood donation? If so, you really need to seek legal counsel so other people donating from the same donation site aren’t also infected by non-sterile procedures.
    Good Luck and God Bless.

    Watch out for karma, Jaycen. It has a funny way of smacking you upside the head.

    So when Colorado gave in to gambling and the big casinos, why didn’t the state government throw a fit when said big casinos destroyed Central City? That town was a treasure and a campy tourist trap, but for those of us who grew up in the area, it was a fun place to go on the weekends and look at a town that still had wooden “sidewalks” and the coolest Opera House. One could trek up to the old cemetery and look at the old grave markers. There was a few old gold and silver mines one could walk around. And there was a meadow above the town flanked by Aspen trees. It was a beautiful site to see in the fall. Where was the government when it was all destroyed by gambling? Hmmmm? Casinos completely destroyed Central City, it’s history and it’s environment. Same can be said for Cripple Creek.

    “Tracks” on drug addicts are darker. The vein(s) used, in drug abuse, are “seared” and cause the vein(s) to form a dark “Track”. This doesn’t happen with plasma donors as nothing is being introduced into the vein, except for the needle used to extract the blood.

    I disagree. When I was injured and couldn’t leave the house for 4 months without assistance, our cat stayed with me while my husband was at work. He would patiently walk beside me as I made my way to the restroom or into the kitchen for something to eat or drink. He stayed by my side from the moment my husband left for work until my husband got home. He’s a good little guy. I would have felt totally isolated without him.

    @Redace66;

    I’m a machinist and have seen the same thing happening when there is a job opening for trainees in our machine shop. The company will hire kids with zero experience, who expect to be paid what a Master Machinist makes ($24 to $30 per/hr). These kids get hired, as trainees, for $15.50 per/hr. Plus insurance, profit sharing, 401k, and a 4% bonus each week if you work the allotted hours. Not a bad gig for someone with no experience. If after a month or two they do not get double the pay, they end up quitting. When I was that age I would have killed for a job that not only pays a good wage (plus great benefits), but a job that will teach a skill that is something that will always be needed in the manufacturing process. Robotics can do some jobs, but as a welder you know robots cannot do all the welding that needs to be done just as robots cannot fully run a CNC machine as a human can. It really disgusts me that kids now days have no desire to work, but expect to get a wage unearned. Just think Red, when all us old fart welders and machinists are either too old to do the job or are dead, who’s going to build all the stuff these azzhats rely on. It’s like the article about the Garbage man who gave that kid the Tonka garbage truck. People were bashing that guy because he was a Garbage man. What do these people think would happen if there weren’t any Garbage men? Know what I am saying?
