Joyce, thank you for correcting my error. I have no idea where I got George (maybe McGeorge Bundy?). Yes, Jeansvote, the refugees are often better vaccinated. Besides, if that happened to be a problem that could be fixed with a simple shot or two. I'm still waiting for someone from that 24% who thinks that Perry should send troops to explain why. Some people are knee-jerk users of military force. (They should just go watch some John Wayne war movies.) In Mexico, public health officials set up free vaccination sites outside churches, and since the people are often devout Catholics, they get vaccinated easily. Mimi, I agree with your IQ estimate, but could we please agree to drop the Hitler and the Nazis references? Nothing compares with them and the Holocaust, and hopefully nothing ever will. The constant comparisons to them from both the left and the right lessens the terror that their names should evoke. I believe Ted Cruz is a demagogue and very dangerous and it's tempting to say that he rants like a very early Hitler, but he's just a misguided Texan out of the mold of Bush and Perry, only a little smarter and, in my humble opinion, a lot more dangerous, but he's not like Hitler. Hitler stands alone. On a personal note, my parents were married in 1936, but I, my parents oldest child, was born in 1945, 9 years later. My mother would not bring a child into a world where Hitler might achieve world domination. I learned from my parents the fear of him and how afraid everyone was that the Nazi war machine was unstoppable. When I became a teen and was studying world affairs the Holocaust was front and center in everyone's mind. It has now become just another historical event, like the Spanish Inquisition or the Norman Invasion of England. It is this passing into history that allows people to lose sight of why Israel must continue to exist. Europe didn't want them and they didn't want to be near a Germany who was always at war. So there are many reasons why we should not trivialize Hitler and the Nazis by comparing him and them to every idiot that comes along. When there's a "Night of the Long Knives" where many leaders are all assassinated at once, or a "Kristallnacht," where the shops of some minority are all destroyed, and the owners are all beaten in the streets, maybe we can say that someone is acting like the Nazis. To my mind nothing compares...yet.
