    This ending of the ban is just in time for all the AIDS folks to come rushing to the US for free medical care once the healthcare bill is passed into law.

    Ok - people have to be wealthy to come ot the US, travel isn't cheap. . . or here illegaly which has been a problem, it's nothing new.

    Many of our own elites go to other countries for health care, as well - so it's a whole full-circle type thing.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I'm not saying there's a specific need to let HIV infected people in, merely that it is a useless gesture to discriminate on those grounds.

    The fact that people who aren't allowed into the US can't infect people in the US is irrefutable and sufficient to justify denying diseased people entrance.

    Explain why we need to admit diseased individuals.
    There's no reason not to since HIV is already present and rampant within the country. Again, it's stupid to try and fireproof a burning house.

    An argument has to be able to stand on its own before you can bolster it.

    Just because I don't view the world through rose coloured glasses doesn't mean I despise the US - quite the contrary in fact.

    Don't be daft - lawyers do a "disservice"? Involving onesself in the law is one of the more noble and enlightened pursuits humans have yet invented.

    If it weren't for lawyers you wouldn't be able to spout off about politics as freely as you can.

    Since I've been to school, I'm perfectly aware of what the "university culture" is, and all real Americans despise that nonsense. People with no real world experience, ie, academics, should not be looked up to by people who's problems aren't what you would call "academic".
    I see, so "real Americans" are uneducated hicks then? No wonder much of the Enlightened world have the opinions of the US that they do.

    Then again, I was not an impressionable little child when I went to college, but a military service vet.
    Bully for you?

    In all seriousness, how many people get infected by needle sticks while working at the hospital as opposed to the other traditional methods of injecting HIV into a person, and why should we accept the clumsy immigrants who really are infected by accidental needle jabs when we can choose non-clumsy unjabbed uninfected medical professionals instead?
    Having immigrated to this country, I can safely say you know little to nothing about the screening people go through in order to get in legally, let alone get a green card or naturalization. :

    i have to say i agree here, unless the person already has family members in the u.s. at least this type of disease.

    "Little girl"? That is Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII excuse you.

    I am a world citizen, assimilation is not my goal. That said, my lack of assimilation does not entail ignorance of my country of residence.
