Monty Pythoning The News...

"...nudge, nudge- no what I mean. A wink's as good as a nod...."

CHICAGO (AP) -- Tuberculosis cases continue to fall in the United States, but some immigrants have disturbingly high rates of the disease, according to a study released Tuesday that called for more aggressive action.

TB rates were highest among residents from lower Africa and parts of Southeast Asia. Most drug-resistant TB cases also were from foreign-born residents, the study noted.
The researchers called for wider testing, including efforts to seek out latent cases of TB from long-term immigrant residents in certain populations.

Public health officials worry that drug-resistant TB could become a worldwide scourge because of global travel and immigration. The issue made headlines last year when an Atlanta attorney with drug-resistant TB flew to several countries. Tests later showed he did not infect anyone on those flights.

While most TB cases come from recent arrivals, a significant number involve people who have lived in the United States for at least 20 years, the study authors said. Most of these likely resulted from latent infections acquired years earlier abroad, they wrote.

Latent, non-contagious infections mean germs are present but the body is able to fight off symptoms. Latent infections can morph into active disease, causing contagious illness, at any time, particularly as people age and their immune systems weaken.

Lets try to interpret the above Orwellian bit of "news presentation". It is amazing how stupid the Media thinks we are...

CHICAGO (AP) -- Tuberculosis cases continue to fall in the United States, but some immigrants have disturbingly high rates of the disease, according to a study released Tuesday that called for more aggressive action.

In other words, compared to 1880, Tuberculosis rates are low among the general public (meaning Whites), yet thanks to a massive migration of third world peoples (non-Whites) those rates are now skyrocketing.
TB rates were highest among residents from lower Africa and parts of Southeast Asia. Most drug-resistant TB cases also were from foreign-born residents, the study noted.

Translation: Non-Whites are responsible for Tuberculosis's new emergence in America.
The researchers called for wider testing, including efforts to seek out latent cases of TB from long-term immigrant residents in certain populations.

Illegal immigrants, who break our most fundamental of laws, do not go through health screenings.
"Long term immigrant residents in certain populations"?
Gee. Now who would that be?

While most TB cases come from recent arrivals, a significant number involve people who have lived in the United States for at least 20 years,

Let's re-write the above in plain English,
"While most TB cases come from recently arrived hispanics, a significant number involve hispanics who have lived in the United States for at least 20 years".

Also you might have noticed the phrase, "Drug Resistant Tuberculosis" in the above article. That should serve as an ominous warning!
And considering the last few sentences of the article, it should rightfully disturb you,
Latent infections are detected with skin tests and treated with nine months of antibiotics. Foreign-born U.S. residents aren't routinely tested for latent TB. And with more than 37 million foreign-born people living in the United States, giving all of them skin tests "would be daunting to say the least," Cain said.

In other news,
Washington - As Congress heads into a critical week of votes on how to relieve America's home-foreclosure crisis, one of the toughest issues will be how to deal with the racial and ethnic dimensions of the problem. Minorities will be watching closely to see who gets the help.

The racial overtones of the foreclosure crisis are taking on a higher profile as Congress wrestles with the shape of a fix this week.
While there are big gaps in available data, industry analysts expect that black and Hispanic homeowners will bear the brunt of the foreclosure crisis. But is it because they overextended and should not have been in the housing market to begin with? Or were they the unsuspecting victims of predatory lending?

"Black and Hispanic families have gotten a disproportionate share of subprime lending, and subprime loans are the driving force behind the foreclosures," says Katheen Day, spokeswoman for the Center for Responsible Lending, a nonprofit research and policy group based in Durham, N.C. "We know that black and Hispanic communities are hardest hit."

Also, the areas hardest hit by home-loan crisis are heavily Hispanic.

The above article is downright surreal in a Twilight Zone kind of way.

Basically, the mortgage mess which is now bankrupting America, was caused in large part by loans given out to blacks and hispanics who could not afford nor manage such loans. And in many cases loans were handed out to illegals who didn't even have ID's.

This all happened because 20 to 30 years ago lenders were being accused of being racist because they were hesitant to hand out loans to the habitually poor (blacks and hispanics). So under new regulations, many of which were foisted upon them by congress, home loans were being tossed around to any minority who asked for them.

Today we see the results.
Jose and Jamal, whose peoples could care less about things like consequences or long term realities, went out and took out loans for things they did not need and could not afford, without giving a first-thought as to whether they would be able to pay off those loans or what might happen if they didn't.

This is why the Third world is the third world.
Not because of some incredibly long run of unbelievably bad luck, but because of the peoples who make up that world.

That is why the more black and hispanic America gets, the more it resembles the third world.
Crime, Poverty, Corruption and Disease are endemic to hispanic and black populations. Nothing is going to change that.
Neither policies nor magic can gift them White civilization.

Where Whites are, Peace, Prosperity, Progress, Freedom and Hope will always blossom.
Where non-Whites are, death and destruction reigns supreme.

It has always been that way.
It will always be that way.


And because of that, journalists and government agencies jump through politically correct linguistic hoops to find new ways of not saying the self evident and obvious.

Thanks to the MSM, the spirit of Monty Python's Flying Circus lives on...
