    Well, thanks dback. It has become so commonplace here of late I hadn't noticed. Must be one of those traditional values I hear so much about.

    Ya think?

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was questioned closely by senators at a hearing in Washington about whether the U.S. should close its border with Mexico, where the outbreak apparently began and the casualties have been the greatest. She repeated the administration's position that "passive surveillance" of U.S. land and seaports was sufficient for now and said closing borders "has not been merited by the facts."

    Notice that for once, that the assertion that "it cannot be done" was not used.
    So now have we established the legal precedent that if there IS "merit" that it can/could be done ?

    While closing the boarders is not going to stop this it will help stem the flow of Mexicans who come over because they can walk into any hospital in TX or California and be treated. Seems the one death so far in the US is a child fromů..you guessed it Mexico. It is not about legal or illegal it is about doing everything we can to reduce the number of cases we will incur. Having them come in with what seems to be a move virulent strain and go to our hospitals and infect those around them is of no benefit to us in any way. Legal and illegal know they can get free help in our hospitals. I am not against helping out most anybody, but take care of us first.Close it off now

    You have any idea how many US citizens travel to and from mexico, or are part time residents there. Are you going to close them out too?

    The only country not taking this outbreak of the Mexican Flu seriously in the USA!

    Why should we wait until the severity of the Mexican Flu is determinded before we take any serious precautions? Isn't our Federal government suppose to be looking out for our well-being?

    This is a classic example of politics being more important than our welfare! Obomo wants to solidify the Hispanic vote/La Raza, control the 2010 Census, so that he and Rahm can jerrymander voting districts, financially support ACORN with tax payer dollars and ensure one party control.

    Our Liberties are under a full-blown frontal assault by the new socialist.

    Actually, what you are calling for *is* politicizing of the situation. Using this outbreak of flu to do something you've been itching to do is the definition of politicizing.

    But don't let people with medical degrees and epidemiological knowhow deter you. Politicians and TV talking heads always know best in these situations.

    By all means, let's close our borders. Not that that would do JACK for stopping this outbreak. Maybe we should all stop eating pork as well? Slaughter all the pigs within the US? Just because other countries are politicizing this situation, using it to ban US-raised pork, etc. is no reason we should be just as stoopid. And take my word for it, what these other countries are doing has no basis in medical relevancy. It is simple stoopidity, knee-jerk panic, playing to the crowds to win the next election. Forget educating people on how to actually avoid getting infected (our folks are doing a bang-up job, by the way). Forget giving the people the resources they need to help a sick relative, friend, or co-worker. No, just play to their fears. That will do the trick.

    Hey, where were you guys when Toronto had a serious SARS outbreak a couple of years ago? Don't recall any hue and cry about closing borders then.

    Sorry for the interruption. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
