Do you even know what in the world you are saying????? Now Republicans--and yes according to you "any" Republicans--hate illegal aliens!???? WHAT? Talk about nonsense. Yes, all or most Republicans HATE illegal aliens. Why that MUST BE TRUE. I am astonished at your reply, and I am astonished (sadly maybe not) that it is allowed to stand.
More irrelevant and inaccurate nonsense! Republicans and Democrats do NOT hate illegal aliens. They are concerned about the dangers and problems that come with illegal invasions and illegal movement across the border--and the undue burdens they put on all Americans. (Just like you would be if you had trespassers coming into your property and consuming your resources without much expectation of contribution or stability or even safety. I don't want to hold anyone back; but there is a way things are to be done. I just can't apply to any college program and expect unconditional acceptance. I can't barge or sneak into the admissions office and think or demand the right to have a place in any particular program. Yes, there may be some that cross over illegally that are trying to survive literally. But that is not all or even most.)
But back to your insolent statement regarding Republicans and some "redneck" (your word) Democrats. . .
Listen, not one of us here as nurses that I can think of, Republican or otherwise, hates aliens nor would we turn them away if they were in suffering or bleeding and needed care. The absurdity (and wow, talk about offensive comments) in your statement is just too too much.
The absurdity in your other statements is inescapable also; but I think you really hit the top with your illegal aliens and Republican and "some "red neck Democrats" statement. Furthermore, you've illustrated the kind of hypocritical and illogical mentality many of us have been talking about. Thanks.
OK. A MB member can talk smack like this--and make such unfair and wicked sweeping generalizations, and somehow it is OK--even though it is not even remotely intelligent, much less true.
You've got to be kidding me.
No wait. In light of everything that's been going on here, I'm now wondering if you are just baiting us . . . right. . . .b/c apparently you can get away with this kind of stuff, yet others just can't speak out in a forthright manner if their positions are of another particular political persuasion.
This is nauseating.

This is beyond incredible! Please someone, Michael, whoever, please tell why this kind of thing goes on endelessly, yet FrankR's thread was pulled down. If this site clearly caters to one side of things, please just be open and admit it, and admit that there will be one set of rules for one group (the politically favored) and another set for the others.
I beg your pardon, but honestly this is just too, too much. And this IS NOT the first time this kind of thing has happened.
And there goes another simlar baiting thread from one of the two notorious for this sort of thing. They know who they are--if INDEED they are truly a "they."
I am sorry. And I believe one of my posts was pulled down, and I was not even pm'd about it. Why? Why do you allow this kind of thing? I thought this site was open to diversity of ideas and positions for ALL nurses--not just those of a particular political flavor.
I've watched this happen more than once. How can there be any credibility here when the rules are not balanced and applied fairly to everyone?
I like many external things you have done with the site, but this kind of imbalance is something that should not be tolerated. Consistently apply the rules of discussion and posting to everyone fairly, period.
I think I am the only one that really doesn't care if you penalize me for posting this response. But honestly it had to be said.
